MiG-29 Fulcrum Design

The MiG-29's wings are swept-back and tapered with square tips. The Leading- Edge Root Extensions (LERXs) are wide and curved down to the front. LERX begins on the nose below the mid-mount point, and the wings' trailing edges end at a high-mounted point. Twin jet engines are mounted low and to the sides of the fuselage. Diagonal-shaped air intakes give a box-like appearance, with large exhausts. The fuselage is made of a long, thin, slender body with long, pointed drooping nose. There is a high-mounted bubble canopy. The tail fins have sharply tapered leading edges, canted outward with angular, cutoff tips. Flats are high-mounted on the fuselage, movable, swept-back, and tapered with a negative slant. The wing is equipped with a fully opening slats, flaps and effective ailerons. The cockpit of the MiG-29 surprisingly spacious and covered with a large lantern, which provides a larger field of view than the western fighters. The instrument panel is almost identical to that of the Su-27, which facilitates the pilots to transition from one machine to another. A unique feature of the MiG-29 - the ability to take off from the combat load on one engine with the inclusion of the second motor in the air, saving valuable time during takeoff alarm.

The MiG-29 is equipped with a radar sighting system RLPK-29, including the pulse-Doppler radar HO-93 (support up to 10 goals for the passage and the detection and tracking of targets against the background of the earth, exceeding the purposes of 13 km, a decrease of 6.5 km, the limit angle support target: vertical to + 60 '/ - 38', the horizontal 67 '/ - 67') and the digital computer TS100.02-06. In the MiG-29C installed advanced RLPK-29C (terrain mapping mode has been added, increase the possibility of action against ground and surface targets). Target detection range class fighter: on the background of the free space of 75 km, on the background of the Earth on a collision course 65 km, 35 km course of the Dogon. Optoelectronic sighting and navigation system OEPRNK-29 includes optical-electronic sighting system OEPS-29, which, in turn, consists of a quantum optical-location station KOLS (IR detector collimated with him a laser rangefinder, the detection range of aerial targets 15 km , the range of the laser rangefinder 6 km FOV: Azimuth 30 '/ - 30' or 15 '/ - 15' elevation 15 '/ - 15') and a helmet-mounted target designation system autonomous W-ZOOM (provides the release of information about the angles of sight aiming system targets both missiles with CBC, as well as the release of information on the status of the pilot systems and missiles ready for launch. The information is displayed as symbols on a special helmet-mounted reflector).

Also on the plane are:

  • on-board digital computer 100.02-02;
  • a single display system SKI-31-32;
  • ILS-31;
  • navigation system SN-29, which includes information complex vertical and course C-050, A-323 RSBN and system of air signals SVS-P-72-3-2I (preparing for flight: the normal 15 minutes, fast 3 minutes, the error in the autonomous mode + 8 / -8 km);
  • automatic direction finder ARK-19;
  • altimeter A-037;
  • A radio-marker 611;
  • short-connected radio R-862;
  • apparatus playback voice messages "Almaz-UP" (50 issues commands and messages);
  • radar transponder SRO-3 radar interrogator SR3-15;
  • Station notification L006LM irradiation;
  • two blocks release of clutter BVP-30-26M with 60 cartridges ejection clutter PPI-26-1V (26 mm);
  • emission control system clutter SUVP-29;
  • generalized system of on-board embedded control and prevention of the crew "Screen-OZME"
  • on-board flight data recording system "Tester-UZL."

The cockpit indicator is set direct vision. The aircraft is equipped with automatic control system SAU-451-04, automatic control system AGC control, and the control system 29-2 trimmer effect. There are command radio equipment control "Turquoise" 3502-20 providing vzlimodeystvie with ground automated guidance systems, and automatic control system SAU-454. The cabin ustanovleio ejection seat K-Z6DM, providing the opportunity to escape the airplane in the speed range from 0 to the corresponding M = 2.5 and altitudes from 0 to 25 000m.

The MiG-29 is a versatile fighter, capable of both bombing and winning air superiority. The armament includes a single-gun GSH-301 (30mm, 150 ammunition rounds, rate of 1500 rds. / Min) in the left wing root influx. The wing has six (eight on the MiG-29K) suspension points goods. All the suspension of the MiG-29 can carry bombs or other weapons class "air-to-ground." To combat air targets at six under-wing MiG-29 units can be installed six SD melee P-60M, or short-range R-73 IR seeker; four SD melee, and two SD medium-range R-27RE with radar or R-27TE with infrared guidance system. It involves the installation of a new SD medium-range R-77. Installation of older SD P-23. For action against ground targets aircraft can carry bombs, blocks NAR caliber of 57 mm, 80 mm, 122 mm and 240 mm, standardized cargo container small KMGU-2. You can use SD-class air-to-surface X-25M with Passive radar, semi-active laser or ship-guided Kh-29 (MiG-29K) with TV and laser-guided supersonic anti-ship missile Kh-31A (MiG-29K), the subsonic anti-ship missile X -35.

The MiG-29 basic version fighter is capable of hitting air targets day and night, in any weather, in free airspace and against the earth background and in active and passive jamming environment. The MiG-29 fighter (export version B) is armed with R-27R1 medium-range missiles with semi-active radar homing heads and R-73E short-range missiles, and unguided weapons (S-24B and S-8 rockets and FAB-250 and FAB-500 free-fall bombs) for hitting ground and sea-surface targets. The aircraft also has a built-in GSh-301 gun (30 mm caliber).

The MiG-29 has a few advantages over its more electronically advanced American counterparts. At about 40 miles apart, the American planes have the advantage because of avionics. At 10 miles the advantage is turning to the MiG. At five miles out, because of the MiG weapons sight and better maneuverability, the advantage is to the MiG. The weapons sight is a helmet-mounted system that allows the missile to follow the line of sight of the pilot's helmet. Where the pilot looks is where it goes.

The MiG-29 is equipped with a radar sighting system RLPK-29, including the pulse-Doppler radar HO-93 (support up to 10 goals for the passage and the detection and tracking of targets against the background of the earth, exceeding the purposes of 13 km, a decrease of 6.5 km, the limit angle support target: vertical to + 60 '/ - 38', the horizontal 67 '/ - 67') and the digital computer TS100.02-06.
