"In 2018, the Ukrainian army received about 50 aircraft and helicopters, which were upgraded and repaired by the aircraft building companies, including 16 enterprises of Ukraine’s state concern Ukroboronprom. The Ukrainian pilots received Su-27 and MiG-29 fighters, Su-25 attack aircraft, Su-24 strike aircraft, An-26 and Il-76 transport aircraft, L-39 training plane, Mi-24, Mi-14 and Mi-8 helicopters," the press service of Ukroboronprom reported.

In addition, the aircraft construction companies continued to work on the development of deep modernization of the Ukrainian army aircraft and the development of new models of aviation equipment.
