Private Company To Support MiG-29s in India

Russian Aircraft MiG and Indian private company Basant Aerospace have signed two maintenance deals worth $55 million to support MiG‐29s in India. This is the first time that a Russian defense company has selected a non‐government‐owned partner to support high‐tech military hardware such as radar abroad. The first deal is worth $43 million and creates a service center in the New Delhi region to repair and maintain the Phazotron‐NIIR Zhuk‐M series of airborne radars that equip the Indian air force MiG‐ 29UPG and Indian navy MiG‐29K/KUB fleet. The second deal is worth $12 million and will establish a service center for parts used on those aircraft.
