    Export vs Local Variant Russian Aircraft Empty Export vs Local Variant Russian Aircraft

    Post  Swgman_BK Thu Aug 04, 2022 12:43 am

    I have a question regarding the differences between export model Russian Jets and The ones used by the VVS. What are the actual technical differences ? Lets just start with the Mig29 up until now. I would like to know what the technical differences are between Export model Russian jets and Russian airforce jets for every model of Russian jet from the Mig29 till now. Please get into detail.

    That is a great question. Though it has become somewhat of a meme it is true that often cold war export fighters were downgraded in equipment. Here is a link where you can gather a smattering of info on the mig 29 and the early export radars and how they were different to the ones used in the Soviet military.

    This site has other threads on engines and avionics for mig 21 and mig 23 which discuss similar topics.
