Description: The Klimov RD-33 is a family of fighter aircraft engines developed to power the Mig-29 multi-role fighter and delivering between 18,000 and 20,000 pounds of thrust. Despite the Soviet Union's collapse, RD-33 engine family has evolved encompassing cutting technologies such as thrust vectoring control (TVC) which provides superior aircraft maneuverability compared with fixed nozzles engines.

The Klimov RD-33MK engine features higher thrust and durability than any of its predecessors. It has been developed to fit into advanced Mig-29 aircraft variants such as Mig-29K, Mig-29SMT and Mig-29M. Each RD-33MK engine provides 19,842 pounds of thrust and has an extended life cycle of 4,000 flight hours which is double than RD-33 engine. RD-33MK engines were selected to power India's Mig-29K and Mig-29KUB carrier-based aircraft ordered in 2005. India commitment was for 16 Mig-29K/KUBs but could increase this order to as many as 30 aircraft.
