Bulgaria has decided to repair the MiGs for € 40 mln.

(SOFIA) (Photo by Airgroup 2000) – The Public Procurement Agency of the Republic of Bulgaria has published a tender for just over 40 million euros for the repair of the 15 MiG-29, reports the agency’s website. The contract must be for 4 years and the repair itself should ensure the airworthiness of the aircraft.

We remind you that only two months ago, the Bulgarian pilots refused to fly with the old MiGs. Earlier, the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rumen Radev said “no matter how good the MiGs are, they do not meet the modern requirements, and the fighters must be compatible with the NATO forces.”

In the middle of next year it will be clear which of the F-18 Super Hornet, F-16, Eurofighter Typhoon & Gripen will win the ongoing tender for new fighter jets of the Bulgarian Air Force.
