MiG Corporation, part of state-owned Rostec has completed delivery of MiG-29 components to Bulgaria ahead of scheduled.
“During the negotiations, which took place in August, the Leadership of Bulgarian Air Force (BAF) and ‘MiG’ Corporation agreed upon the delivery of component parts for MiG-29 aircraft ahead of schedule. Last week we dispatched a final batch of air-technical equipment under valid contracts,” the company said in a recent press release.
Bulgaria's defense ministry signed a 7.9 million levs ($4.68 million) in January 2020 contract with MiG Corporation for buying equipment for its MiG-29s. They were to be delivered within 17 months. The deal was part of a four-year framework agreement signed between the two parties in 2018, envisaging integrated logistics support of 15 BAF fighter jets for a total of 1,450 flight hours per year.
