R-77 / AA-12 ADDER - International Sales

As the developer at MNII "Agat" notes, cooperation with potential foreign customers in terms of acquisition and testing of the RVV-AE missile with RGS 9B-1348E is possible. It is noted that, at the request of the Customer, the parameters of the product may vary.

The RVV-AE missile was purchased by Algeria, Malaysia, Venezuela, Yemen, Peru and, possibly, Vietnam, Indonesia and Eritrea. In August 1999, the State Flight Test Center in Akhtubinsk successfully conducted the training launch of the R-77 missile from the modernized MiG-21bis fighter with the Kopy radar, later it is planned to launch similar missile launches from the MiG-21-93 Indian Air Force fighter. In mid-1999, the Russian side decided to include in the proposed Indian Air Force a package for the modernization of 125 MiG-21bis fighters (MiG-21-93 version) and the newest air-to-air missile R-77. The MiG-21-93 fighters will be equipped with a new avionics and armament in the framework of the $ 340 million contract, which is aimed at extending the warranty cycle for Russian aircraft. In early 2000, the pilots of the Indian Air Force conducted test firing with new missiles from the MiG-29SE aircraft.

Together with the MiG-29S fighter, the R-77 missile was delivered to Malaysia and Peru. In mid-2005, the Russian State Design Bureau Vympel intended to sign contracts with India for the sale of medium-range air-to-air missiles R-77 (RVV-AE). India planned to equip the Su-30MKI and modernized MiG-21-93 with these AA-12 missiles. The rocket is made in a general climatic ("O") version and can be used in conditions of temperate, cold and tropical climate. It comes into operation in a fully assembled and equipped form (the rudders are folded when packing) in a hermetic case and wooden container.

KTRV presented to MAKS 2009 new samples of missile weapons, in particular an RVV-SD medium-range air-to-air missile, as the further development of the RVV-AE missile, are almost identical in composition and size. Russia supplied Malaysia with the first batch of RVV-AE air-to-air missiles, the contract for the supply of which was signed at the DSA-2012 arms show, and will complete the fulfillment of obligations under this agreement before the end of 2014.
