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.

MiG-29s arrive in Serbia

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.”

The value of the planned deal was not disclosed.

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.

Former Russian MiG-29s arrive in Serbia

THE FIRST photos have emerged of six MiG-29s donated to the Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo i Protivvazduhoplovna Odbrana (RV i PVO, Serbian Air Force and Air Defence) by Russia in late December 2016.  All had arrived in Serbia by early October after delays resulting from Serbian elections and establishment of a new government earlier this year. The six Fulcrum  have been repainted and carry new RV i PVO markings and serial numbers, while all sensitive equipment (including Russian IFF systems) has been replaced with export variants. On October 2 an An-124-100 heavy transport of Volga-Dnepr Airlines left Tretyakovo Airport near Moscow, arriving at Batajnica air base later that day with the first pair of single-seat MiG-29s aboard – serials 18151 and 18201.  It made two more trips in the next two days, bringing the remaining four jets – single-seaters 18202 and 18203 on October 3 and two-seat MiG-29UBs 18351 and 18352 the following day. After its official acceptance in Serbia, 18201 returned to Russia aboard the same An-124 for overhaul at the 121 Aviatsionnyy Remontnyy
Zavod (ARZ, Aircraft Repair Plant) in Kubinka after the last pair of MiG-29s had arrived, departing Batajnica early on October 5. The aircraft will not enter service immediately.  First, all six will undergo modernisation at the Moma Stanojlović aircraft repair plant with the assistance of Russian specialists, and will be fitted with the same ICAO-compatible navigation and communication equipment found on Serbia’s current four MiG-29s. The process should be complete by the second half of next year, in time for the six ex-Russian aircraft to enter operational service and the original four Serbian aircraft to depart for an overhaul. Meanwhile, spare parts and weapons should arrive from Russia as part of the original agreement, and the follow-on modernisation agreement
with manufacturer RAC MiG is expected to be signed as soon as all the details are defined. A separate donation of  eight additional MiG-29s from Belarus (see
Serbia to acquire MiG-29s from Belarus, March 2017, p11) has also been delayed by Serbia’s political situation. However, President Aleksandar Vučić was expected to pay an official visit to Belarus in November, when the agreement will be finalised and signed.
