Over 60 Russian defense industry companies will present their products at the 2006 Farnborough International Airshow starting Monday
Over 60 Russian defense industry companies will present their products at the 2006 Farnborough International Airshow starting Monday, with the latest MiG fighter in the center of Russia's exposition, a defense-cooperation agency said Wednesday. A spokesman for Russia's Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation said Russia would present the MiG-29M OVT (Fulcrum F) highly maneuverable air superiority fighter, which was shown for the first time in August 2005 during the MAKS Air Show outside Moscow. The single-seat fighter, 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. Russia's exposition at the show, which runs in the south of England through July 23, covers about 250 military products, including the RD-33 and RD-1700 aircraft engines, a simulator of the Mi-17B combat-transport helicopter, and the BARK-78 unit for automatic engine control, the spokesman said. The MIG Corporation has proposed the MiG-29M single-seat and the MiG-29M2 twin-seat aircraft for the Indian Air Force's procurement order for 126 fighters. Mig-29M/M2 could be assembled locally by HAL if the Indian government finally selects this aircraft. In early 2005, the U.S. administration approved the sale of the F-16 aircraft to Pakistan and therefore increased the stakes for the Mig-29M fighter. Meanwhile, a deputy general director of Rosoboronexport, Russia's state-controlled arms exporter, played down fears that the Russian equipment could be arrested at the show in connection with a suit from a Swiss trading company, Noga, which claimed the Russian government owed it almost $500 million. "We have no fears that any [Russian] equipment will be arrested" Ivan Goncharenko said. "We have many legal regulations protecting the Russian defense industry's products overseas." At the 2001 Paris International Airshow 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 Noga
