The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-27M (NATO Reporting Name "FLOGGER-J") is a single-engine, single-seat, supersonic ground attack platform developed for the Soviet Air Force. Built from 1978, the MiG-27M is an improved variant of the MiG-27 family. The type received a significantly improved ECM suite, the GSh-6-30 cannon, and a new navigation and targeting system.
The MiG-27M is a moderately-priced ground attack aircraft available to Soviet and PACT decks. Armed with a 30mm GSh-6-30 Gatling-type cannon and four Kh-25ML missiles, the type is good for spot removal of heavily armored targets and command posts. The Kh-25ML is powerful and accurate, making the MiG-27M much more dangerous against enemy tanks than the baseline MiG-27. The MiG-27M's chief drawbacks are its poor ECM and lack of any aerial missile compliment. These factors lead to vulnerability against SAMs and fighters in general, so an escort should be considered.
The MiG-27M in Wargame: Red Dragon is a moderately-priced ground attack aircraft available to Soviet and REDFOR decks. It is armed with a 30mm GSh-6-30 Gatling-type cannon and two Kh-25L missiles. The loss of two missiles means that the MiG-27M will not be able to sustain tank hunting as long as in AirLand Battle, but given the Kh-25L's accuracy and AP power, is still a good choice for tank and command-post hunting. The type has also been given good-level ECM (30%) to help defend against SAMs and AAMs, but a fighter escort should still be considered, as the type does not carry any AAMs for self defense.
