Unlike the MiG-29 basic version (version B), the MiG-29SE has the increased weapon load and longer range (with three external fuel tanks). Its weapons mix includes R-27T1 medium-range missiles with IRHH, RVV-AE missiles with an active radar homing head, R-27ER1 increased-range missiles with a semi-active radar homing head and R-27ET1 missiles with IRHH. The aircraft can be fitted with active ECM systems ensuring protection from radar detection, and weapons guidance aids, improved built-in check and training systems. The MiG-29SE can simultaneously engage two air targets.

Having been operated since 1983 the MiG-29 aircraft has become the main fighter in the RF Air Force. The customers are supplied with more than 1600 MiG-29 aircraft of different modifications which are operated in more than 25 countries over the world. Four states have repeatedly bought the MiG-29 aircraft. In the most countries, which have purchased the MiG-29 aircraft, it has become the main type of a light front-line fighter of the national Air Force.

While designing the MiG-29 aircraft very high capabilities for the aircraft improvement have been laid into its structure that made it possible to create a number of modifications. Since the middle of 1990s some countries have been supplied with modified MiG-29SE fighters which have increased internal fuel and upgraded N019ME radar with a new computer. The MiG-29SE fighter armament nomenclature is completed with the middle range "A-A" R-27ER1, R-27ET1 (T1) missiles with radar and IR homing heads and RVV-AE missile with active radar homing heads and maximum weapons load is increased up to 4500 kg.
