KADEX 2014: Syrian MiG-29 numbers, delivery firm up

27 May 2014

Twelve MiG-29M/M2 multirole fighters ordered by Syria will be delivered in 2016-17, according to RAC MiG CEO Sergei Korotkov.

Korotkov said four of the aircraft had been constructed, but the delivery schedule was being affected by the conflict in Syria.

"This war is actually our headache; there are problems with handing over the aircraft," he told journalists during the KADEX 2014 show in Kazakhstan, according to the Interfax-AVN military news agency.

In June 2013, Interfax-AVN cited a Russian defence export source as saying that the original contract that Syria signed in 2007 for 12 MiG-29M/M2 and an option for another 24 was being renegotiated.
