Five MiG-29s newly delivered to Serbia were displayed during the Sloboda 2017 (Freedom 2017) exercise that took place at Batajnica air base on October 20.

Three An-124 flights by the Volga-Dnepr company had brought a total of six MiG-29s to Batajnica during the first week of October. The jets have been donated by the Russian defence ministry to the Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo i Protivvazduhoplovna Odbrana (RV i PVO, Serbian Air Force and Air Defence).

One of the Fulcrums (a 9.13 version, RF-93709) was immediately sent back to Russia for general overhaul at the 121 Aviation Repair Plant in Kubinka. Reportedly, it was not even taken out of the An-124. The time between overhaul (TBO) for the MiG-29 is ten years or 700 flight hours, but for the Russian armed forces it’s seven years – and because RF-93709 was last overhauled in 2010, it’s now due another.

Five aircraft will be brought to the same standard as the four surviving MiG-29s in the current RV i VPO inventory. This includes an MFI-54 multifunction colour cockpit display and communication and navigation devices in accordance with ICAO standards.

The aircraft are expected to take over quick reaction alert assignment and pilot training in the second half of next year. Current Serbian MiG-29s will be overhauled when they reach their TBO of ten years.

The 101st lovačka avijacijska eskadrila (101st Fighter Aviation Squadron) will have ten MiG-29s in around two years’ time, which will continue to serve until 2027-31.

WARSAW, Poland — The Serbian Ministry of Defenee is planning to purchase S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems and seven Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter jets from Belarus.

The deals are to be signed this November during an official visit by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to Minsk where he will meet with his Belarusian counterpart, Alexander Lukashenko, a Serbian government source told local daily Tanjug.

The unnamed official said that “the offer that is on the table and which will be announced in November is much more favorable than the one that we obtained from Moscow.”

Delivery of Russian MiG-29 fighter jets is Serbia’s biggest security achievement — premier


Six MiG-29 fighters were provided to Serbia by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision

BELGRADE, October 27. /TASS/. The delivery of six Russian MiG-29 fighter jets is Serbia’s biggest achievement in defense and security in the past 30 years, the country’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said.

"The biggest success in the security sector is that we received so many jets for our Air Force for the first time in the past 30 years. Six MiG-29 fighter jets arrived in Serbia. Besides, a lot has been done for the Serbian armed forces in general," she said, answering to questions from lawmakers of the Serbian parliament.

Six MiG-29 fighters were provided by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision. Earlier it was reported that six MiG-29s had flown from Russia to Serbia in early October. Serbia will pay between 180 million euro and 230 million euro for their overhaul, to be carried out in three stages.

In addition to the MiG-29 planes, Serbia will also receive 30 T-72 tanks and 30 BRDM-2 combat reconnaissance and patrol vehicles from Russia for free. The sides are also holding negotiations on Buk-M1 and Buk-M2 air defense missile systems and the Tunguska antiaircraft missile/gun complex.
