The original story behind airplanes is to make getting from point A to point B easier and more practical. The invention of airplanes is considered as one of the greater human inventions. The possibility to be able to board as many as 500 people and take them across great distances is quite the miraculous invention. Over time people have found many ways to evolve the air travelling, make it better and even Chance it so it could be used for several occasions.

While originally oriented towards combat against any enemy aircraft, many MiG-29s have been furnished as multi-role 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 multi-role Mikoyan MiG-29M and the 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.

Take a look first hand at what a takeoff of a fighter jet looks like from up close. The roaring sounds of the engine, the powerful looking exterior and the fearful extravagance is just enough to show you what is strength at its finest.

      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.

        I gather you have never seen the British carriers! Nothing "substandard" at all, in fact, these ships are smaller, less costly to make, operate and maintain. Planes are designed with purposes in mind. Each country sets up what is needed. None but the US have global dominance in mind nor spend trillions on weapons, ships, planes, people, etc.

          It remains substandard as no plane launched from one of these decks has a full combat load combined with full fuel load. To get off the deck they sacrifice part of that. They are not less costly to make or maintain as it requires the ramp to be built up and reinforced. The US does not have global dominance in mind, but rather quick reaction and the ability to fight longer and farther. In naval warfare the further you can keep a fighter, the safer the ship is. These are severely limited by the range of the aircraft.

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