The Lviv State Aircraft Repair Plant SE, which is part of the Ukroboronprom Group, handed over to the military another upgraded MiG-29MU1 fighter jet.
That's according to the plant CEO Dmytro Matrunchyk, Ukroboronprom's press service reports.
"On the eve of Ukraine Defender Day, the enterprise launched test flights of another modernized MiG-29MU1 jet," the official said, adding that, following successful tests, Ukraine defense officials have accepted the fighter for service before it was deployed to its permanent base.
The plant has performed a set of repair works, extended the fighter jet's service life, and installed Ukraine-made equipment and systems as part of modernization (having replaced Soviet parts). Thus, tactical and technical performance of the Air Force's main combat aircraft was enhanced.
