    That is an old MiG-29K test bird. It was used for static tests on the carriers during recent trials. It is not owned by the RuNavy- and even if it was, it is a pre-serial test bird, useless for operational use.

    India's new aircraft carrier to get new MiG fighters

    Post  Pinto on Sun Jan 24, 2016 3:58 pm

    22 January 2016 RIA NOVOSTI

    As MiG is a long-term partner supplying specialized aircraft for the Indian armed forces, the Russian Aircraft Corporation is prepared to supply carrier-based fighter jets for India’s next aircraft carrier, the INS ‘Vishal.







    The MiG Russian Aircraft Corporation is ready to supply the required number of MiG-29K/KUB carrier-based fighter jets for India's planned new aircraft carrier, INS ‘Vishal’, if the Indian Ministry of Defence should want, said Anastasia Kravchenko, speaking for the company to RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    A day earlier, the Indian media had reported that Delhi had asked four countries for proposals on supplying fighter jets for the ‘Vishal’, which will carry more than 50 aircraft.

    "MiG and India's Ministry of Defence are long-term partners. We are linked by many years of successful cooperation. We would certainly be ready to supply fighter jets for the new aircraft carrier," said Kravchenko.

    She said that, according to experts, it would be best both strategically and economically, for the Indian Navy not to diversify its fleet of carrier-based aircraft.

    At present, MiG-29K/KUB jets are operating from another Indian aircraft carrier, the INS ‘Vikramaditya’ (formerly the ‘Admiral Gorshkov’).

    Russia is currently completing a contract (signed in 2010) to supply 29 carrier-based fighter aircraft to the Indian Navy. So far, 23 have already been delivered to the navy.

    The carrier-based MiG-29K and MiG-29KUB jets are generation "4++" multirole aircraft, designed for fleet air operations, achieving air supremacy and hitting surface targets on water and land with precision-guided weapons, by day or night, in any weather conditions.

    The aircraft have an improved airframe with a high composite material content, quadruple-redundant fly-by-wire flight controls, significantly reduced visibility in the radar spectrum, an increased fuel capacity and combat load, and open avionics architecture.

    The first flight of the prototype MiG-29KUB took place in January 2007. In 2009, MiG-29K/KUB jets successfully performed a series of test flights from the deck of the ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’, a heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser. The maiden flight of the MiG-29KUB production series aircraft, built under a government defence order, took place in October 2013.

    First published in Russian by RIA Novosti.

    There are still a number of problems with India's Russian-built Mikoyan MiG-29K/KUB aircraft

    There are still a number of problems with India's Russian-built Mikoyan MiG-29K/KUB aircraft, as well as with the aircraft carrier formerly known as Admiral Gorshkov that entered Indian Navy service in 2013, sources in India have told IHS Jane's .

    The complaints about the MiG-29K/KUB aircraft are generally due to the inability of the Russian firm RSK-MiG to deliver a complete aircraft that incorporates all of the features promised in the contractual documents signed by both parties.

    Indian experts who have visited the test base at Goa, where flight training with the aircraft is conducted, report that the MiG-29Ks are being delivered to India in a substandard configuration. The aircraft, said one specialist who visited the Goa base recently, "are literally being upgraded and brought up to spec while on the flightline".

    The chief culprit in this dilemma, say both Indian and Russian specialists, are the combined embargoes enacted by the Ukrainian government that bar the export of any military-use items to Russia, along with the EU and US sanctions that prohibit the export of Western military components to Moscow. The 'workaround' has been for India to import these items directly, then have them integrated onto the aircraft on-site at the Goa base.

    The MiG-29K for India differs from the MiG-29KR aircraft being built for the Russian Navy (VMF) in that the Indian-produced and foreign-made components are deleted in the configuration of the latter aircraft and replaced by Russian-made systems.

    The Russian-supplied carrier, which has been renamed INS Vikramaditya , is a re-built and modified Kiev-class cruiser that has been converted into a fully capable short take-off but arrested recovery (STOBAR) aircraft carrier by Russia's Sevmash shipyards.

    Another Indian BS. I would like to know, what Ukrainian parts are in MiG-29K/KUB or western parts. MiG-29K were well tested and all planes were tested before delivery to India and they are delivered complete, so it would be interesting to know, what parts are missing and have to be installed after delivery. I have a feeling, that India again went full retard and replacing original Russian parts with foreign and than it doesn't work as originally works and than they complain how bad Russian equipment is.

    This remind me of Indian Arjun tank. They take German Leopard 2 tank, place Israeli FCS in it and got a shit of tank. If Arjun is a junk, it doesn't mean that Leopard 2 is a bad tank.

    This is a slightly less sensationalist version than I'd read elsewhere but the important bit is the last.

    Knowing that Banderastan was refusing to supply parts this would have been communicated to India, India obviously negotiated direct with Banderastan got agreement for the relevant parts to be supplied to India -> Russia & India agreed to send incompletely fitted out airframes to India for final integration there (probably with a price discount).

    No biggie since final spec is the same & Indian govt is probably happy enough to get more work done domestically dunno
    Its pretty much the standard model for building airliners last few decades: bits made in different countries put together at a final integration facility.
