History

Strangereal

MiG-1.44s had seen use in a number of conflicts, starting with the Usean coup d'état, where it was operated by the Usean Rebel Forces.[1] A notable pilot was one of their aces, Gold Bird.[2]

MiG-1.44s were also used during the Circum-Pacific War.[3] Only two known pilots used the aircraft, one by OADF pilot Allen C. Hamilton[4] and the other by BAF ace pilot Replicator.[5]

MiG-1.44s were used during the closing stages of the Aurelian War by both the Aurelian Air Force and the Leasath Air Force.[6] A notable Leasathian ace, Lancer was known to fly this type of aircraft.[7]

Joint Assault universe

During the Valahia CrisisVarcolac Squadron leader Milosz Sulejmani flew a MiG 1.44 in the second[8] and third battles against Antares Squadron.[9] Later on, Flatpacks were used by the Golden Axe Plan Private Army  over Nevada as well as San Francisco.

Infinity universe

MiG-1.44s were available for use by UNF pilots during Operation Eternal Liberation.

Game Analysis

Ace Combat Infinity

"A proof of concept aircraft for the 5th generation fighter, developed for the Soviet Union Air Force.
Developed as a demonstrator for the MFI Plan and conceived to counter the American ATF Plan, it was selected as a likely candidate for production.
The delta wing with its canards and the secondary propulsion directional control nozzles provide excellent speed and turning performance, creating a multirole with a slight bias for air-to-air combat.
It's[sic] NATO codename is "Flatpack"."
