The Russian aircraft building corporation MiG will present a full-size simulator for the combat use of the fighters MiG-29 at the 9th international aerospace show Aero India-2013, which will open here on Wednesday, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin told reporters on Tuesday.
“This is a unique device and we are right to the point, believing that this simulator will be in high demand,” he noted.
This simulator was expected to be delivered to India, if the fighter MiG-35 (the modification of the fighter MiG-29) won in a tender, which the Indian Air Force held for the purchase of multifunctional fighters, but the Russian fighter lost to the French fighter Rafale.
Russia will show the helicopter gunship Ka-226T among other life-size Russian aircraft. This chopper was brought to India to participate in a tender, as well as the Russian fighters from the aerobatic team Russian Knights. “More Russian full-sized models are unfortunately not expected at the aerospace show,” Fomin said. Meanwhile, he noted that the Russian participation in the Indian aerospace show will remain to be sweeping. A large number of Russian companies will present their information on the posters, in the 3D presentations, placards, models and other products. “The Almaz-Antey Air Defence Concern alone will put on display 79 products,” Fomin said.
“Russia has been participating in the aerospace show Aero India since the foundation of the aerospace show. From year to year the Russian indicators did not change in the number of its participants, rented area and other aspects. We continue to participate actively in the aerospace show Aero India,” Fomin underlined.
