"The Indian Navy plans to establish three naval aircraft squadrons that will fly MiG-29K/KUB. Two of the squadrons will be deployed to two aircraft carriers, while the third one will be used for training," Sergei Korotkov, who heads Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG, told RIA Novosti.
In January 2010, New Delhi and Moscow signed a deal worth $1.2 billion for the delivery of additional 29 MiG-29Ks to the Indian navy.
"Our cooperation does not amount to aircraft delivery. Indian companies supply high-end systems for MiG-29K/KUB. Our test pilots helped their counterparts to master new projects," Korotkov said. India is MiG's top priority partner worldwide, he added.
