RUSSIA / MALAYSIA :- Russia Plans to Sign Deal on Malaysia’s MiG-29 Aircraft Upgrade at MAKS ::

Russia plans on signing a contract with Malaysia to modernize the latter’s MiG-29 fighter jets as part of the XIII International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS, the director of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), Dmitry Shugaev, said Tuesday.

"We plan to finalize such a serious process as modernization of Royal Malaysian Air Force’s MiG-29 jets. Today, [Malaysia's] Air Force Commander is here. We hope that everything will be successful," Shugaev said.

A total of 18 Russia-made MiG-29N fighter jets became part of Royal Malaysian Air Force’s (RMAF) fleet under a 1993 deal. On March 21, a representative of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) told Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak that Russia was ready to modernize Malaysia's MiG-29N fighter jets to MiG-29SM, and provide full repairs to this end.
