the Mig-29AS radar has been planned to be overhauled/slightly upgraded sometime ago , but bcs of of poor airworthiness there are bigger problems that need solving first. The WZL-2 N019EA low cost upgrade is reputedly giving twice the range on big rcs targets and much higher reliability, but with the same missile combos as baseline 9.12A. Hoping to receive some info about the upgrade from service soon, but for air patroling tasks only it is more than enough. The N019 radars have already been modernized the same way in Ukraine and Belarus.

Anyway, did you know that RSK MiG stuff is forbiden to enter Polish Mig-29 airforce bases?
