Description: The Klimov RD-33 is a family of fighter aircraft engines developed to power the Mig-29 multi-role fighter and delivering between 18,000 and 20,000 pounds of thrust. Despite the Soviet Union's collapse, RD-33 engine family has evolved encompassing cutting technologies such as thrust vectoring control (TVC) which provides superior aircraft maneuverability compared with fixed nozzles engines.

Each RD-33 aircraft engine provides 18,300 pounds of thrust and has a life cycle of 2,000 flight hours. Mig-29A air defense fighter and Mig-29UB twin-seat training aircraft are powered by two RD-33 engines.
