While originally oriented towards combat against any enemy aircraft, many MiG-29s have been furnished as multirole fighters capable of performing a number of different operations, and are commonly outfitted to use a range of air-to-surface armaments and precision munitions. The MiG-29 has been manufactured in several major variants, including the multirole Mikoyan MiG-29M and the navalised Mikoyan MiG-29K; the most advanced member of the family to date is the Mikoyan MiG-35.

Later models frequently feature improved engines, glass cockpits with HOTAS-compatible flight controls, modern radar and IRST sensors, and considerably increased fuel capacity; some aircraft have also been equipped for aerial refueling.

      Every takeoff from an aircraft carrier is extremely short.... and you notice the carrier deck is a curved ramp at the end?

      lol Lame. Very, very lame. Can't run full fuel or full combat payload and can only launch one plane at a time. Substandard versus a catapult equipped carrier.

        That deck is designed for Harriers!

          No it's not. RUssians don't HAVE VTOL aircraft. It's designed for Russian MIG's. It's just a crappy design. The Russians rely upon their massive thrust engines to give the plane enough thrust to get it airborne. This limits the range of the aircraft due to massive fuel consumption.

      Why can't you remove the image in the middle of the picture?
