Elbit Systems, an Israel company that develops various types of weaponry, could help the Ukrainian Air Force to modernize eleven MiG-29 fighters, reports the Defense Industry Courier, citing a source in the Ukrainian Defense Military.

According to the source, “the winged craft will receive fundamentally new capabilities and the latest weapons for airborne warfare”. He added that the upgrades could cost in the region of $440 million, at $40 million per fighter”. However, the contract has not yet been signed, and negotiations are still underway, the source noted.

Elbit Systems worked with German specialists to modernize MiG-29s in Romania, but the program was unsuccessful and all planes of this type were removed from service.
