ABU DHABI—Russia and the United Arab Emirates will partner on the development of a new fighter aircraft reportedly based on the MiG-29.
Details of the plans emerged during the IDEX defense show here on Feb. 21 during a visit by Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov. He told the TASS news agency that the two countries had signed an agreement on military industrial cooperation.
“This will enable us to push ahead with the fifth-generation jet project, in which the UAE will participate,” Manturov said.
