Russia will demonstrate the latest MiG fighter at the 2007 Le Bourget International Air Show outside Paris
Russia will demonstrate the latest MiG fighter at the 2007 Le Bourget International Air Show outside Paris, a defense industry official said Tuesday. The MiG-29M OVT (Fulcrum F), a highly maneuverable air superiority fighter, was unveiled for the first time in August 2005 during the MAKS Air Show outside Moscow. The single-seat fighter, which is also marketed for export as the MiG-35, is powered by RD-33 OVT thrust vectoring control engines. The RD-33 OVT engines provide superior maneuverability capability to the aircraft, enhancing its performance in close air-to-air engagements. At the 2001 Paris International Air Show in Le Bourget, a Russian Su-30 Flanker and MiG/AT trainer were forced to make an early exit after French authorities tried to enforce a court ruling in favor of a Swiss trading company, Noga, which claimed the Russian government owed it almost $500 million. As a result, mock-ups of Su-family military aircraft were displayed at the Farnborough International Air Show last year. The Le Bourget Air Show will run from June 18 through 24.
