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.

New aircraft complex has high level of unification for maintenance on airfields earlier adapted for the use of MiG aircraft of previous generation. All parts of the aircraft have been produced with the use of corrosion protection, which is an important advantage for storage, maintenance and operation in hot climate.
