Mikoyan Mig 29

By far the most famed Russian 4th Generation fighter jet which was developed to counter the Americans F-15 and F016 Fighters. Alongside with the SU-27 fighter. The Mig 29 has been in many games and has also seen way more action in engagement in the air compared to its western counterparts.

With a speed of Mach 2.25 and the ability to carry a mix combination of air to air missiles, the Mig 29 is a great fighter jet. So much so that the Federation of American Scientists claims the MiG-29 is superior to the F-15 and other US fighters in short aerial engagements because of the Helmet Mounted Weapons Sight (HMS) and better maneuverability.

Behold the Mig 29
