Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Aviation Defence & In India -

The Rus­sian United Air­craft Corp (UAC), which has been hold­ing com­pany that con­trols all fixed-wing air­craft de­sign and pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies in Rus­sia, has an­nounced that RAC MiG and Sukhoi will be com­bined in a newly es­tab­lished com­bat air­craft di­vi­sion. Rus­sian In­dus­try and Trade Min­is­ter De­nis Man­turov de­scribed the change as a trans­for­ma­tion of UAC’s cor­po­rate struc­ture with new di­vi­sions set to be es­tab­lished for each avi­a­tion branch: com­bat, strate­gic bombers, spe­cial-mis­sion, civil and trans­port. The com­bat di­vi­sion will have MiG and Sukhoi shar­ing re­sources, test­ing, re­search and de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties but re­tain­ing their brands.
