The Mikoyan MiG-29 is a Russian fourth-generation fighter, designated "Fulcrum" by NATO.
Built as a single-seat supersonic, all-weather, air superiority fighter the MiG-29's compact size, rugged landing gear, and general robust nature make it ideal for frontline operation from combat-zone airfields.
Very agile, highly responsive, and providing sustained turn performance, the Fulcrum has an edge over many of its peers in close combat situations. Its weapons sight is helmet-mounted and allows the missile to follow the pilots line of sight. i.e. where the pilot looks, is where the missile goes.
Armament: 1 x 30mm cannon, 6 x AAMs including a mix of SARH, AA- 8, AA-10, AA-11, FAB 500-M62, FAB-1000, TN-100, ECM Pods, S-24, AS-12, AS-14.
