PHOTOS: IAF Upgraded MiG-27 Avionics Part Trainer

Just received these photos from a source at HAL. The last photo is of the Elta podded self-protection jammer introduced on the upgraded MiG-27. Here's my special report last month detailing the IAF MiG-27 upgrade.

I thought this pod was mounted internally in the nose.

Its time to retire these planes. but then again with aquisitions taking as long as they do, I don't know if the IAF has the luxury to retire planes without reducing their strength.

Cujo

@ rajiv

dont u think it would have been easier for them to show the digital readouts and gauges if they wanted to show digital gauges ......considering how its a computer (and hence digital) thats doing all the simulations

Now how about replacing the MiG-27's engines? That was mooted twice and cancelled twice. Their engines are what causes most of the crashes.

This is a waste of time and money, DARE should have developed systems to turn the MIG 21 and MIG 27 into UCAVs, like israel with its, 'plug and fly' system and US with the K-MAX unmanned helicopter!!!
