Description: The Mig-29, Fulcrum NATO-codename, is a single-seat, highly maneuverable fighter aircraft designed to engage airborne targets such as aircraft, UAVs and cruise missiles. It features a limited air-to-surface/ ground strike capability. The Mig-29 is the Soviet counterpart to US F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 aircraft. More than 1,300 Mig-29s have been produced for 27 countries worldwide. The Mig-29 aircraft features an integrated fire control system comprising the aircraft radar, and Infrared Search and Track (IRST) device, and a helmet-mounted sight. It can accommodate medium range R-27 and short range R-73 air-to-air missiles, bombs, and rockets as well as a built-in 30mm GSh-301 gun. The Mig-29 is able to outperform any existing western aircraft in a short range engagement employing the combination of R-73 missile, helmet-mounted sight and IRST. The Mig-29 Fulcrum avionics are not as sophisticated as its NATO counterparts aircraft such as the Mirage 2000, F-15, F-16, and F/A-18. In the event of an air-to-air engagement at medium range NATO-aircraft shall have advantage over the Soviet Mig-29. However in a dogfight the Mig-29 will outperform NATO-aircraft easily. In the ground strike role the Mig-29 doesn't match NATO-aircraft capabilities.

The Mig-35S is an advanced version of the Mig-29 aircraft and represents 4++ generation of Russian fighter aircraft technology. It is capable of winning an air dogfight, neutralizing attack aircraft and cruise missiles, destroying sea and surface targets employing precision guided munitions at standoff ranges, conducting air reconnaissance missions, and playing patrol missions in groups of aircraft. The Mig-35 features open architecture avionics, improved operational performance and a greater number of weapons compared with other members of Mig-29 family aircraft. Extensive use of composites in the airframe have led to radar cross section (RCS) reduction thus achieving enhanced survivability. RAC MIG rolled out the first production aircraft on January 9, 2007.

MIG Corporation has increased its internal and external fuel capacity leading to a maximum takeoff weight increase which means that the Mig-35 is a medium fighter aircraft rather than a light fighter aircraft. Its internal fuel capacity has been increased by 50 percent. Besides, the aircraft can load up to five droppable external fuel tanks (compared to three in the Mig-29) in addition to its built-in fuel refueling probe. Other key improvements implemented for the Mig-35 program have led to: increased engine and avionics reliability, service life extension to 40 years or 6,000 flight hours, engine TBO (Time Between Overhaul) of 1,000 flight hours, reduction of flight hour cost by 2.5 compared to Mig-29, and on-condition maintenance which means all the checking and servicing procedures carried out at its home base.

The standard equipment provided to the Mig-35 includes Zhuk-AE active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, on-board oxygen generation system (OBOGS), OLS-UEM sophisticated multi-channel Infrared search and track (IRST) sighting system, OLS-K targeting system, anti-corrosion airframe technologies, electronic warfare systems, and electro-optic and radar warning systems against fighter aircraft and ground-based air defense systems. The RD-33 OVT thrust vectoring control (TVC) engines provide super-maneuverability. As part of the electronic equipment provided to the Mig-35, RAC MIG and Elettronica of Italy are promoting the ELT/568(V)2 jammer. Optional equipment includes the PAZ-MK refueling pod which enables the Mig-35 to act as a tanker-aircraft. A new computer-based training simulator is available for the Mig-35 and other Mig-29 family aircraft.

The MIG Corporation developed the Mig-35 multi-role aircraft for the Russian Air Force and export customers. Mig-35 is one of the tenders for the Indian Air Force (IAF) Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) program issued August 2007. India's MMRCA program calls for the supply of up to 126 aircraft plus 64 options as well as the transfer of technology and aircraft license production in India.
