The Ukrainian state owned enterprise SpetsTechnoExport will supply the MiG-29 fighter jets of the Polish Armed Forces with the medium range air-to-air missiles R-27R1.

The tender of the Polish army has been won by a consortium of Ukrainian SpetsTechnoExport and Polish WB Electronics. The information was published on the Facebook page of the Ukrainian Air Force.

“In October last year, Polish military announced a tender for purchase of 40 air-to-air missiles with the range of 50-80 kilometers for MiG-29 fighter jets. This is the first such purchase of the guided missiles after the aircraft were initially acquired 20 years ago. According to the tender requirements the missiles that are being delivered have to be manufactured not earlier than a year before their scheduled delivery.
