    Very nice Corran !

    I regret that these birds will not be upgraded by RSK Mig and BAE Systems...

    Nice photos. Some of these are ex-Luftwaffe airplanes. I found a picture of one firing a missile. That plane must be now in Polish colors.

    This plane now is used as a help in Dęblin Pilot School

    The ex-German planes are the ones with 41 in tail number (11 aircrafts in active service at this moment)

    Polish MiGs were modified by WZL-2 in Bydgoszcz receiving the following systems:
    - ANV-241MMR VOR/ILS
    - AN/ARN-153 (TCN 500) TACAN
    - Trimble 2101AP GPS receiver
    - Thompson-CSF SB-14 radar warning receiver
    - Radwar SC-10 Suprasl IFF
    - Unimor-Radiocom RS 6113-2 VHF/UHF radio with new R-862 control panel
    - new anti-collision lights and new "NATO" two-tone gray camouflage

    GPS, TACAN and VOR/ILS systems were integrated with the aircraft navigation system via TGR-29A interface.

    why did the poles purchase ex-luftwaffe mig-29's.... don't russian planes have a reputation of having low life expectancy?

    i thought poland would purchase F-16's instead

    Poland received 22 ex-German MiG-29 (paying 1 Euro for each aircraft), all of the planes were in very bad shape, but few of the them (the ones that received ICAO II upgrades and were on Red Flag in US) can't be used no more, there were some serious cracks in construction and if you like to use those airframes many elements should be replaced (and it would cost lots of money, probably buying some second hand planes from Russia would be cheaper then this). With 11 ex-Germain planes we have total of 32 operational MiGs, organized in two squadrons.


    The surplus airframes are used in flight school in Dęblin, on military technical school in Warsaw, and two of them you can find in military museums in Warsaw and Cracow. We also get some considerable number of spare engines, radars etc.

    And... we have purchased 48 brand new F-16 block 52+ (3 squadrons) as well. All those planes have replaced aging MiG-21 fleet.

    Is the Polish airforce still having problems with the servicability of the F-16s ?
