DESCRIPTION:

MiG-29 Picture AlbumThe MiG-29 was designed as a replacement for the MiG-21, MiG-23, Su-15 and Su-17 fighters. While the overall appearance is similar to that of the American F/A-18 Hornet, the MiG-29 incorporates much larger and deeper leading-edge root extensions (LERXs) allowing good maneuverability at high angles of attack. A series of auxiliary intakes are mounted on the upper surface of the LERXs allowing the engines to draw in air when the two main inlets are closed. These fatures are used during ground taxiing to prevent debris from being sucked into the engines.

The large nose houses a single-seat cockpit for the pilot as well as a large pulse-Doppler look-down/shoot-down radar, laser rangefinder, infrared seeker/tracker system, and a helmet-mounted target-designation system. Though initial production models were not equipped with a fly-by-wire control system, the Fulcrum has shown exceptional agility earning the aircraft great admiration in the West.

The MiG-29S model was upgraded with new avionics moved to the upper part of an enlarged fuselage thereby allowing greaterfuel capacity. One of the most advanced variants is the MiG-29M which includes a fly-by-wire control system and a more advanced HUD and some glass-cockpit displays. This model also disposes of the auxiliary engine intakes on the earlier models to make room for additional fuel, short range being the primary disadvantage of initial variants.

The Soviet Navy also considered deploying the Fulcrum aboard its new Kuznetsov class aircraft carriers, and a navalized MiG-29K was developed and tested. However, the Su-33 was eventually chosen instead, though the decision is academic now that the Russian carriers have been laid-up for lack of funds.
