Klimov, now part of VPK MAPO, is developing thrust-vectoring-modified RD-33s for the Mikoyan MiG-35, a derivative of the MiG-29M. Klimov is also understood to be proposing development of the RD-333, a "fifth-generation" design.

The low-bypass RD-33 turbofan powers all versions of the MiG-29, and some upgraded MiG-21s. The latest version, the RD-33K, is fitted to the MiG-29K and MiG-29M. Klimov also produces the TV3-117 and TV7-117 turbo-shafts for a range of helicopters.
