The Russian Aerospace Forces have received two modern MiG-35 fighters and will receive four more before the end of the year, Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG Director General Ilya Tarasenko said.

“We have made a significant breakthrough in the MiG-35 program over the past three years. We have launched the construction of this aircraft rapidly. Over two and a half years we have moved from development activities to a contract with the Russian Defense Ministry, and, under this contract, we have already delivered two first aircraft to the Aerospace Forces for tests. We plan to deliver the remaining four aircraft by the end of the year”, Tarasenko said.

He added that the corporation expected to sign a new contract for MiG-35 deliveries with the Russian Defense Ministry.

The MiG-35 is an offspring of the MiG-29 jet but has improved avionics and weapons systems.

It also received precision-guided targeting capability as well as an optical locator system that gives it the ability to detect and track enemy aircraft or drones without relying on intel from ground-based radars.

Dream on! The only things Iran may have got was 2-3 squadrons of Chinese J-10 in exchange of China controlling the biggest Iranian oil field for 30 years… And Chinese companies and banks have pulled out from Iranian market by fear of being banned from US market.
