All of the aircraft had the experience of combat employment during local military conflicts in the territory of the region,” said director general of ‘MiG’ Corporation Ilya Tarasenko, having added that MiG-35 is a very interesting proposal for African partners from the point of view of the cost-effectiveness criterion.
