Russia, Peru to Sign MiG-29 Jet Upgrade Deal

Russia, Peru to Sign MiG-29 Jet Upgrade Deal

Russia and Peru will sign a contract to upgrade Lima's fleet of Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum fighters by the end of May, Konstantin Biryulin, deputy head of Russia’s Federal Military-Technical Cooperation Service, said on Monday.

Belarus sold around twenty of the fighter jets to Peru in 1997. According to defenseindustrydaily.com, Peru signed a contract in 2008 for Russia's UAC MiG to upgrade eight of the original MiG-29S standard aircraft to MiG-29SMT standard. That work was completed in 2012.

Biryulin did not specify which organization would carry out the next upgrade or what enhancements it would include, or how many aircraft are involved.

Russia completed a $20-million upgrade last year for Peru's Russian-built Mi-25 attack helicopters. The Peruvian air force operates a total of 16 Mi-25 and Mi-35P helicopters.

Peru is also considering buying 100 T-90S tanks, Russian state arms corporation Rosoboronexport said on Sunday. Peru currently operates around 300 obsolete Soviet-made T-55 tanks, which Lima wants to replace with T-90S’s.

The modified T-90S is fitted with an uprated multi-fuel 1,130-h.p. diesel engine, reactive armor, a 125-mm main gun capable of firing anti-tank missiles and new fire-control systems.

Russia and Peru signed a military-technical cooperation agreement in 2006.
