And now MiG-1. Officially called the “first Mikoyan and Gurevitch airplane”. Mikoyan and Gurevitch then combined their first letters of their names and it became MiG. Those were two engineers who worked on the plane.

MiG-3 – Soviet WW2 era fighter. Used as a “night fighter”.

    Mig 35 is NOT by any stretch of imagination a Gen. 5 stealth plane. It is a desperate bid by Mig to find a buyer, otherwise company will likely go under. Unless government takes over.

  2. Douglas says:

    The MiG 35’s only buyer with deliveries seems to be the Egyptian air force. They bought several dozen and plan to keep them until 2060. No, its not stealth. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan_MiG-35

    When I saw Top Gun fil for the first time, I was fascinated by those black fighters with the red star. I started my research and realized that the real MiGs (and Sukhoi, Tupolev, Mil, Kamov, etc. etc.) were even more elegant than those F-5 colored in glossy black. Since then … only a passion that has not stopped for about 30 years.

    MiG 1.44 – Not very stealthy with all those rivets! Nice pictures though!

    • Ball Breaker says:

      MiG 1.44? A plane that wasn’t produced? LOL.

      Better check the Sukhoi SU-57. Don’t be lazy, google it.

      You’ll LOVE the pics, boy.

  5. Mike says:

    SU-57 is obsolete, far behind Gen. 5 American planes, way to expensive for what it offers, many bugs and untested features even after many years of development, this comes even from Russian sources.

    • Ball Breaker says:

      ….”SU-57 is obsolete, far behind Gen. 5 American …”. –LOL. According to whom? You?

      —“The analysis that I have seen on the Sukhoi indicates a pretty sophisticated design that is at least equal to, and some have said even superior to U.S. fifth-generation aircraft,” former U.S. Air Force intelligence chief Lt. Gen. Dave Deptula told the National Interest …”—

      And now, cry some more…

      . “It certainly has greater agility with its combination of thrust vectoring, all moving tail surfaces, and excellent aerodynamic design, than does the F-35.”

      “Performance-wise it certainly looks to compete with the Raptor,” one senior military official with extensive experience on U.S. fifth-generation fighters told the National Interest .

      ‘Mike’, if you wanted to, somehow, feel better this morning about yourself, I guess you’ll have to try something else… If that’s why you’re here, of course.

    “Light subsonic jet fighter.” – two pics on last page.
    Actually, this is a orbital plane “Spiral” project.
