The MiG-29 9-12A is a multirole combat aircraft that was made available for Czechoslovakia in The Millionth Mile DLC for Wargame: Red Dragon. It is unique in being the only aircraft armed with fuel air bombs.

HistoryEdit

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 (NATO reporting name FULCRUM) was developed under the TPFI (Lightweight Advanced Frontline Fighter) program by the Soviet Union in response to the new generation of American fighters developed and deployed during the 1970's. The MiG-29 is a twin-engine, two-tail, single-seat, supersonic multi-role fighter. Greatly exported to Warsaw Pact and Communist allies, the MiG-29 provided Soviet-allied nations a fighter with long-range radar, advanced missiles, and superb maneuverability. The 9-12A variant (NATO reporting name FULCRUM-A) is a downgraded variant of the MiG-29, with less capable radar, ECM, and avionics than Soviet models, and also lackes nuclear delivery capability. Nevertheless, the 9-12A gives Warsaw Pact allies a more powerful and maneuverable fighter compared to earlier generation aircraft.

OverviewEdit

The MiG-29 9-12A is a Czechoslovakian multi-role combat aircraft available to Czech and REDFOR decks. It is armed with a GSh-301 autocannon, four fuel-air explosive bombs, and two R-73A Vympel missiles. It features very good ECM (40%) and a tight turning radius. The fuel air bomb is unique in that is has good HE power along with napalm effects, allowing it to be used to destroy infantry and lightly armored vehicles outright, as well as force them out of cover. The 9-12A's missile and cannon compliment also allows the type to engage enemy helicopters or fighters at close range.

The chief drawback of the MiG-29 9-12A is that it carries no long-range missiles. Although its ECM is powerful enough to provide some protection against long range SAMs and AAMs, it cannot strike back against enemy aircraft until it reaches very close range, and may have to fly through multiple missile envelopes before it can engage its attacker.
