The Indian Air Force (IAF) received a significant boost with the swift delivery of 15 RD33 series engines by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) within a month of signing the contract. This rapid turnaround underscores the priority placed on upgrading the IAF’s MiG-29 fleet.

The Rs 5300 crore contract marks a major step towards modernizing the IAF’s fighter jets. The RD33 engines are expected to significantly enhance the performance and lifespan of the MiG-29UPG aircraft, bolstering India’s air defense capabilities.

“The programme will focus on indigenisation of several high-value critical components, which would help increase the indigenous content of future repair and overhaul (ROH) tasks of RD-33 aero-engines,” the MoD said.

The MiG-29 UPG is an upgraded version of the MiG-29, a versatile fighter jet that has been a mainstay of the IAF for decades. The upgrade program includes enhancements in avionics, weapon systems, and engine performance, significantly extending the operational life and combat capabilities of the aircraft.
