Jane's, the military hardware experts, offers readers an unprecedented, hands-on tour of one of the former Soviet Union's greatest military weapons, The MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter.
Further Expanding Their Successful at the Controls Series, Jane's looks to the excellent all-weather MiG-29 fighter, mainstay of the former Soviet air force. Conceived to counter the perceived threats from NATO aircraft development, the MiG-29 was designed to go head-to-head with the American F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle fighters. Simple, cheap, and reliable, the MiG-29 became its nation's frontline fighter, a job it has performed remarkably well for a decade.
With 150 illustrations and a special 30-inch, full-color, foldout section detailing the aircraft's instrumentation, capabilities, and tactics, Jane's MiG-29: At the Controls offers the opportunity to "fly" one of today's most advanced fighter aircraft.
