Ukraine’s Radionix presents complete modernisation package for Soviet platforms

Ukraine's Radionix presented a full spectrum of options for modernising Soviet-made fighter aircraft and air-defence systems during the 8-11 October Arms and Security expo in Kyiv.

This was reported by Jane's Defence Weekly.

The options that the company offers would enable countries still operating the Mikoyan MiG-29 or Sukhoi Su-27 and Su-30 models "to carry out a complete upgrade of their air force", said one of the senior engineering executives.

Radionix offers three main upgrade options: a new radar designated the Esmerelda that would replace the Phazotron N019 model installed in the MiG-29 and the NIIP N001 in the Su-27; a new-generation electronic warfare system, the Omut-KM, that can be fitted to the aircraft internally or in an external pod; and a range of new seeker heads that can be retrofitted to Vympel R-27 (AA-10) air-to-air missiles (AAMs).
