Kuala Lumpur: Russia's state-controlled MiG aircraft manufacturer will publicly unveil the final production model of its new MiG-35 fighter at an air show in India next month, the company said Wednesday.
The full technical specifications of the MiG-35 will be shown at the Yelahanka air base in Bangalore, India, on Feb. 6, a day before the opening of the Aero India exhibition, Vladimir Barkovsky, director of MiG Corp.'s Mikoyan Design Bureau, said in a statement.
Only the test prototype of the MiG-35 has been shown to the public so far at the MAKS Airshow Russia in 2005 and at Farnborough, Britain, last year, according to the statement issued by MiG through the Kuala Lumpur-based Asian Defense & Diplomacy magazine.
The aircraft is based on Russia's existing MiG-29M fighter, but is widely expected to have significant improvements in maneuverability, flight range and weapons systems.
