The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29A (NATO reporting name Fulcrum) is a twin-engine, super-sonic, high-performance fighter.

Description

When the Soviets got wind of the USAF's "FX" program, which resulted in the F-15C Eagle, they realized that the new fighter presented a serious threat to the (then) current line of fighters, such as the MiG-21bis Fishbed and MiG-23 Flogger. Work began on 'Product 9' designated MiG-29A, began in 1974, with the first flight taking place on October 6, 1977. The MiG-29A was designed to counter the F-16C Fighting Falcon, while the Su-27 Flanker was designed to counter the F-15C. The "Fulcrum" features many advanced aerodynamic features that give the aircraft superb fighting capability despite having a very short combat radius. The MiG-29's wings are swept-back and tapered with square tips. LERXs are wide and curved down to the front. LERX begins on the nose below the mid-mount point, and the wings’ trailing edges end at a high-mounted point. Twin jet engines are mounted low and to the sides of the fuselage. Diagonal-shaped air intakes give a box-like appearance. There are large exhausts. The fuselage is made of a long, thin, slender body with long, pointed drooping nose. There is a high-mounted bubble canopy. The tail fins have sharply tapered leading edges, canted outward with angular, cutoff tips. Flats are high-mounted on the fuselage, movable, swept-back, and tapered with a negative slant. It is more manuverable than the American F-15C Eagle. The MiG-29A is a widely exported aircraft, flown by such nations as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Peru, Russia, Ukraine and many former Soviet republics.


In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, the plane is flown by Molot Squadron, Red Moon Squadron, Big Bear Squadron, and the NRF. The MiG-29 is a highly manuverable aircraft that is made available to the player in Blue on Blue. Due to the manuverability of the aircraft, it can perform the famous Pugachev's Cobra maneuver.
