MOSCOW (BNS): India will take delivery of six Russian MiG-29K Fulcrum 'generation 4++' fighters this year, MiG CEO Sergei Korotkov said at the ongoing MAKS-2013 international air show.

Russia will deliver the fighter jets to India as part of a $1.5 billion contract signed in 2010 for 29 planes, a RIA Novosti report quoting Korotkov said.

Under the contract MiG is to deliver 29 MiG-29Ks before 2015. Russia delivered one MiG-29K this year and four aircraft in 2012, he added.

The MiG Aircraft Corporation has also signed two additional contracts with India worth a $55 million at the air show.

According to MiG, under the first $43 million contract, a servicing centre will be set up in India for maintenance and repair of Zhuk-ME on-board radars and the second, $12 million contract for building another servicing centre in India for modernised MiG-29UPG fighter jets.

The biennial MAKS international air show began on Tuesday at the Zhukovsky air field near Moscow.
