Ukrainian aeronautical design teams have already produced what has been described as a "sketch outline" of a platform for a new fighter, which has been given the programme name of Legkiy Boiviy Litak, which is Ukrainian for "Lightweight Combat Aircraft" and abbreviated as LBL. The aircraft is supposed to bear a strong resemblance to the Soviet-designed Mikoyan MiG-29 in its external appearance, but the aircraft's onboard systems will be of non-Russian origin.
One of the main differences between this new Ukrainian design and the original MiG-29 will be its engines and electronics. Reports from Poroshenko's visit to the Ivchenko facility stated that the two engines would be "a design based on the AI-322F and the avionics would be of both Western and Ukrainian manufacture".
So a westernized and re-engined development of the MiG-29. Sounds interesting, maybe Poland, the Baltic nations and Bulgaria should look at joining this program? Poland already cooperates with Ukraine on the MiG-29, and is also working with them on tanks.
Would Ukraine be allowed to integrate western missiles such as the AIM-120, Meteor, IRIS-T or AIM-9X on this jet? With precision AGMs it could even replace the Su-22, Su-24 and Su-25s of Poland/Ukraine/Bulgaria.
