Defense experts are calling this decision the end of a round. Both Mig and Sukhoi are subsidiaries of UAC since 2006, but their autonomy was maintained. For the past several years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been trying to change the military agenda of the country.
Sukhoi and MiG are very special fighter jets for the Indian Air Force (IAF). These jets are more important in the IAF fighter squadron. Both the jets are from Russia and now a big information related to these jets is coming out. According to the information coming from the Russian media, the Sukhoi-making company and the design bureau of the MiG are being merged. Together, a corporate aircraft manufacturing center will be built.
Decision needed for economic stability
The head of the Rosstech Corporation, Sergey Chemezov, has said that the move has been taken to address the issue of sustainable stability and competitiveness of the aircraft. If they believe, the same decision will be taken in the coming time to fulfill the need of modern aircraft of the country.
He said that systemic reforms are necessary for any company because it also changes the structure of the company. He said that Russia’s need for domestic civilian aircraft and modern aircraft for passenger transportation will be fulfilled in this way.
This decision was taken long ago
It has been reported from Rosstech that these changes are being made to strengthen the economic stability of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC). This company consists of Mig and Sukhoi. Also, by keeping the people working here properly in the company and reducing the burden of debt and non-production costs can be eliminated. The headquarters of this new company will be in Moscow. In a meeting held on 16 March, it was decided to merge Sukhoi, Mig and UAC.
End of round one
Defense experts are calling this decision the end of a round. Both Mig and Sukhoi are subsidiaries of UAC since 2006, but their autonomy was maintained. For the past several years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been trying to change the military agenda of the country. It is now believed that there will be some changes in the design of the coming generation fighter jets and warplanes.
It is being told that the Mig will carry forward its old design and there will be no upgradation of any kind. At the same time, Sukhoi will change the design of its existing jets. Since 2006, no new aircraft have been proposed by MiG. At the same time, Sukhoi is pushing the fifth generation fighter jet project.
So far, no major changes have been said in the design. No decision has been taken yet on the design unit, important aspects of the aircraft program and production sites.
