Indian Air Force awards MiG-29 upgrade contract to Taneja Aerospace – Airforce Technology

Taneja Aerospace and Aviation Limited (TAAL) has been awarded a contract to execute lifecycle modernisation of the Indian Air Force's (IAF) MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter aircraft. Under the terms of Rs120m ($2m) contract, the company will retrofit the spares and components supplied by the IAF into the aircraft, as reported by The Times of India.

A total of eight bidders, including Tatas, L&T and Punj Lloyd, competed for the contract, which aims to increase the lifecycle of MiG-29s for a period of additional 40 years.

Work under the contract is scheduled to be carried out at the base repair depot (BRD) at Nashik.

The BRDs fall under Nagpur-based maintenance command of IAF, which reportedly has nearly 50 MiG-29s in its inventory.

Manufactured by Mikoyan design bureau, the MiG-29 Fulcrum is a fourth-generation jet fighter aircraft designed to destroy hostile air and surface targets within radar coverage limits using unguided weapons during visual flight conditions.
