    Russian multirole MiG-35 fighter jets will receive the latest platform-less inertial navigation system, the CEO of the Moscow Institute of Electro Mechanics and Automation, Alexei Kuznetsov, said Friday.

    “The MiG-35 will receive the navigation system. We have signed a contract, we have to put some samples for testing at the end of this — early next year,” said Kuznetsov.

    The system is designed to determine the location of the object, complex processing and delivering navigation and flight information. The system is able to determine the coordinates and parameters of an object in the autonomous mode and in the absence of terrestrial, marine or space signals.

    The MiG-35 is a multipurpose 4 ++ generation fighter, it is a further development of the MiG-29K / KUB and MiG-29M / M2 combat aircraft with improved combat effectiveness and versatility, as well as improved performance.

    In August, CEO of ‘MiG’ Sergey Korotkov said that the signing of the contract to supply he Russian Defense Ministry with MiG-35s is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2016. The aircraft will enter the Russian Air Force in 2018-2020.
