That will teach them a lesson to sell a mig 29 the same price as a su-30
What are you talking about?
Sukhoi used its financial strength of sales of Flankers to approach Algeria and say... hey... you just signed an agreement with MiG to buy some MiG-29SMTs. If you cancel that and buy some Su-30Ms instead we will match the price you are paying for the MiGs.
The whole point of the UAC or OAK company was because ruthless Russian companies would stab each other in the back to get contracts from each other... and often end up making Russian stuff just look bad in the process to get sales.
The MiG-29SMT would have been a more capable aircraft than the Su-30s they ended up buying and would probably have been significantly cheaper over the lifespan of the aircraft in terms of support costs.
Now they are both parts of UAC.
And Sukhoi still tries to screw MiG with Su-75...
