Quote from RAC "MiG" site "", July 2010:
The MiG-29SMT main features:
■  Modern high precision weapons of "A-S" class (...)
■  (...) multifunctional multi-mode pulse-Doppler airborne "Zhuk-ME" radar manufactured by "Fazotron-NIIP" Corporation. The radar is provided with a slot antenna array. (...)

It allows to install aboard the aircraft the new systems of Russian or foreign origin at the customer’s request.
■  The cockpit data display system includes two new wide-screen MFD-10-6 multifunction color displays and realizes the HOTAS conception.
■  INS-GPS navigation system is included into the navigation equipment.
■  The aircraft is equipped with in-flight refueling system.

"Upgraded MiG-29UB" it's a upgrade of serial 9-51 variant to SMT standard. Sometimes is called "9-53" in publications, probably wrong. Don't have a dorsal fuel tank, that's why it's not a previuos MiG-29UBT 9-52 version! It's only upgraded MiG-29UB, maybe should we call it "MiG-29UBupg". Produced by Sokol in Nizhniy Novgorod, of course. Has the same weapons as MiG-29SMT, avionics and cocpit, but no radar and no possibility to use a radar homing weapons.
