NORTH KOREA

Chosŏn Minjujuŭi Inmin Konghwaguk (Democratic People's Republic of Korea)

In service

Korean People's Army Air Force (KPAAF) since 1988

Deliveries

1988-1989: 12 MiG-29 (9-12) and 2 MiG-29UB from Soviet Union

1991-1992: 3 MiG-29 (9-13) from Russia
In total 17 MiGs between 1988 and 1992

Some (maybe 10) MiG-29 (9-13) were delivered from Russia in parts. When Korean failed to pay in hard currency not in goods, in 1992 Russia stopped transferring components and only three aircraft were completed in 1993 at the Seventh Machine Industry Bureau in Panghyon from parts delivered by Russia - Korea was the sole country with licence to build MiGs. Anyhow, it was too complicated to Koreans. Spare parts later allow maintained other MiGs in relative good condition, despite lack of spare parts from Russia and embargo.
