Azerbaijani Air Force MiG-29 spotted at Ukrainian plant


According to social networks, there are three fourth-generation MiG-29 multipurpose fighters of the Azerbaijani Air Force at the Lviv State Aviation Repair Plant. Aircraft are being repaired and upgraded at a Ukrainian enterprise.

On Saturday, January 22, at the same plant, a general meeting was held at the end of the year of the enterprises of the state corporation Ukroboronprom.

Repair of Azerbaijani MiG-29s at Ukrainian facilities is not the first time. So, in 2019, at the same Lvov enterprise, as well as at the State Enterprise "Lutsk Motor Plant", by order of the military department of Ukraine, the state company "Ukrspetsexport" repaired three MiG-29s of Azerbaijan.

Similar work was carried out at the factories of Ukraine in 2018. All repaired fighters were supplied by Kiev to Baku in 2006-2011.

    70% of the military equipment of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces was produced in Russia. If you put a radar with AFAR on the MiG-29, put a new engine, new ammunition, then it will fully meet the requirements of modern air combat. With the provision of a modern AWACS and U complex with a radar with AFAR (Turks will try), with suspended electronic warfare and RTR containers. Specialized electronic warfare, RTR aircraft are not liftable for the treasury of Azerbaijan.

    Another question in this regard arises, how high-quality repairs will be done in Ukraine?

      When the war in Karabakh began, it turned out that not one of the 12 Azerbaijani MiG-29s was combat-ready, including those that seemed to be being repaired in Banderland))) Why did Turkish F-16s fly to Aliyev. I can't imagine how a plane can be repaired without spare parts. You need to understand this is another series of deriban of the Azerbaijani budget)))

      The quality of the repair can be judged by the Croatian MiG-21. A couple of years ago there was a very big scandal. After the repair, they could not even fly away

    At the Lvov State Aviation Repair Plant there are three multipurpose fighters of the fourth generation MiG-29 of the Azerbaijani Air Force.

    so Azerbaijan bought them in Ukraine, in 2006-2007. The fighters were repaired and modernized before being sent. According to some reports, the vehicles received a new satellite navigation system, a modified radar and weapons control system, and Kh-29T guided missiles were included in the armament.

    The Lvov plant maintains, repairs and modernizes both its own MiG-29s and aircraft of the same type from the Air Forces of Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Sudan and others.

    Ukraine inherited from the USSR a very impressive fleet of more than 200 "twenty-ninths" (as well as engines and repair kits for them), which was gradually reduced, using "unnecessary" aircraft as donors. Gradually, Ukraine, on its own, mastered the overhaul of the airframe and systems of MiG-29 aircraft at the facilities of the State Enterprise "Lviv State Aircraft Repair Plant" and the RD-33 engine at the Lutsk Repair Plant "Motor"

    In general, if customers turn to the Lviv Repair Plant, it means that they are satisfied with the proposed level of work.
    Now the MiG-29 can be repaired not only in Ukraine, but also in Belarus or Poland, for example (if you really don’t want it in Russia)

      If the customer turns to Lviv, this means that he needs to quickly and without fuss get money. How can you repair an aircraft without spare parts. You can even repair the VAZ-2101 horseradish.

        having no spare parts

        in my comment one of the ways out of the situation is given.
        How does a huge number of aircraft fly in the world, the production of which was discontinued a long time ago? How do Ukrainian MiG-29s fly, after all, 30 years have passed since the collapse of the USSR? How do Indian and other MiG-21s fly, which are much older than the "twenty-ninth"? How did the Iranian "Tomcats" fly in the absence of support from the manufacturing country (USA)? These are all rhetorical questions, a reason to think and the answer will come.

          How I fly Mig - 21 in India is clear, Russia supplies them with spare parts. Croatian MiG-21s were repaired in Odessa just now, so they couldn't even take off. The same will happen with Azerbaijanis. For details, please contact Lviv and Baku. I work at an aircraft engine building plant, we also do repairs. I can’t even imagine how an airplane (aircraft engine) can be repaired without spare parts, because it’s impossible at all, from the word at all. And spare parts are not sold at the market.

          MiG - 29, in Banderland, practically do not fly, because the rest of the resource on the "engines" is tears.
