    Probably not.

    ‘The final decision also hinges on the country's economic situation as well as its debt to the International Monetary Fund.’

    Neither of those situations show any signs of improving any time soon.

    To date, 14 MiG-35s have been produced — including six tests and eight serial-produced aircraft. Russia has remained the sole operator of the MiG-35, but a variant has been considered for export. Unlikely Argentina will see any of these anytime soon.
