This book presents the development and operational use of the Soviet/Russian Mikoyan MiG-29. The MiG-29 was the Soviet response to the new generation of air-superiority fighter aircraft fielded by NATO, such as the American F-15 and F-16. The aircraft entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1982, and was soon flown by many Eastern Bloc air forces. The fighter's performance came as surprise to the West, and modernized variants are still in service today. Described in superb detail are the many MiG-29 variants, and export models that flew in such countries as Algeria, Cuba, Hungary, India, Malaysia, North Korea, Peru, Poland, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, and many others. Aircraft technical systems and armaments are also discussed in detail.

This detailed, illustrated look at the Russian Sukhoi Su-27 fighter aircraft features complete discussions of its design, construction, and operational use, as well as all technical systems and weapons. Developed in the 1970s as a match for the American F-15 "Eagle," the aircraft remains one of the most important fighters in the current Russian arsenal, and has formed the basis for many variants including the Su-30, Su-34, and Su-35. Though larger than Russia's famed MiG-29, it is extremely maneuverable and considerably more powerful. The Su-27 can also fly at extremely high angles of attack--an ability it is fond of demonstrating at airshows, along with its legendary "Cobra" maneuver. The Su-27 remains in production, and nearly a dozen countries--including China, India, and Vietnam--currently operate this high-performance aircraft. The book is superbly illustrated with more than 210 color images, and includes more than thirty color aircraft profiles displaying color schemes.

Ende 1939 entstand das »Experimental-Konstruktionsbüro« OKB MiG mit den beiden Flugzeugingenieuren Artjom I. Mikojan und Michail J. Gurewitsch. Damit begann eine einzigartige Firmengeschichte. MiG-Flugzeuge zählen seit Jahrzehnten zu den bekanntesten und leistungsfähigsten Militärflugzeugen der Welt und brachen eine ganze Reihe von Rekorden, sowohl durch ihre Flugleistung als auch mit ihren großen Produktionszahlen. Beginnend mit der MiG-1 aus dem Jahr 1939 bis zur MiG-35 des Jahres 2011 wird hier in bekannter Manier der weltberühmte Flugzeughersteller und seine Produkte vorgestellt. Auch zahlreiche, zum Teil wegweisende Prototypen, werden beschrieben.
