Mig-35 en route to North Korea?

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — According to information gathered and information on a new North Korean air defense capability development plan, Pyongyang is highly interested in the Russian generation multi-role fighter 4+ Mikoyan Mig-35 (NATO Code: Fulcrum F) and plans to modify the assembly lines of locally produced Mig-29s for the production of a new variant of which virtually nothing is known.

This information is crucial because neither China nor Russia can export new fighter jets to North Korea under international sanctions against that country.

This forces the latter to adopt an approach that could be described as non-linear.

However, it is now known from reliable sources that North Korean agents were able to obtain dozens of spare parts for combat aircraft not listed in the arsenal of their nomenclature from two non-consenting Asian powers (China is not part of it).
