The Mikoyan MiG-29, NATO reporting name: Fulcrum, is a fourth-generation jet fighter aircraft designed in the Soviet Union for an air superiority role. Developed in the 1970s by the Mikoyan design bureau, it entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983, and remains in use by the Russian Air Force as well as in many other nations. The Mikoyan MiG-29 is aerodynamically broadly similar to the Sukhoi Su-27, but with some notable differences. MiG-29 is built largely out of aluminium with some composite materials. It has a mid-mounted swept wing with blended leading-edge root extensions (LERXs) swept at around 40°.
