Title: MiG-29? No, MiG-33!

Authors: Anatoly Belosvet, Mikoyan design bureau, deputy
general designer,
Yuri Polushkin, Mikoyan design bureau, branch manager

[Abridged translation]

Demonstrated for the first time at Farnborough-94, the MiG-33,
a new Russian fighter, is a deep modernisation of the MiG-29.
The main goals of the modernisation were:
- multifunctionality with further growth of air-to-air and air-to-
ground capability widely using high-precision weapons;
- considerable growth of combat range owing to an increase
in the internal fuel capacity;
- better pilot-to-aircraft interface in the cockpit;
- introduction of new-generation equipment.

The Mig-33 is named the Fulcrum Plus or flashback and is essentially a spruced-up version of the Mig-29. A proposed MiG-35 (the Super Fulcrum, how original) is also in development. I think they've just run out of names beginning with 'F' to be honest.

The Mig-21 of the 21st Century ? We don't have to worry so.


The Mig-21 was a good fighter, but he never won a dogfight or another air combat against a western fighter.

isn't the Mig 35 the designation of the Mig 1.42?

I thought so, to bad they can't produce those, it's a gorgeous airplane...i wonder what the Indian/Russian 5th gen hybrid will look like?

that's the MiG project 1.42 (yes, now officially designated the MiG 35) but that's not the super-fulcrum, the super-fuclrum is the MiG-33, which is a modified, souped up, fulcrum, it looks like the fulcrum

the MiG-35 will never be put into production as it's too expensive and Russia is too poor, technology from it will be incorporated into the new Russian/India 5th gen fighter

This Mig is looking cool. It's the first Mig that I like, and it will not go in production.


It has a good shape & design.

Interested readers will find quite a lot on this if they dig in the archives.
that certainly is the Mig-35 in the picture.
You'll also find in the archives a discussion of the difficulty of keeping up with Russian classification numbers. The Foxbat/Flogger/Fulcrum stuf is, of course, given by NATO not the Russians, and I can't imagine NATO is very bothered now. In theory, unless they find some very weird archaic word starting 'Fy-" they'd have to go back to "Fa-" after Fulcrum.
This plane has been the 1.42, the 1.44, I-42 and I-44 - the "MiG-35" and the "MiG-39" to the best of my knowledge.
It was indeed scrapped -that makes it no new planes for the Russians since 1996 and nothing even promised until 2005.

This is not a Fulcrum. The Mig 29 Fulcrum is the Nato designation for the aircraft not the russians.

This aircraft is the 1.42 it's a technology demostrator and nothing else. The russian military right now does not have the money to build the new fighter.

Their latest is the SU-37 Flanker and that's the best I got.

The MIG series is as follows
MIG-15 Fagot
MIG-17
MIG-19
MIG-21 Fishbed
MIG-23/27 Flogger
MIG-25 Foxbat
MIG-29 Fulcrum
MIG-31 Foxhound

www.fas.org is a good resource

Actually to be nitpicky about it there is no formall designation for the aircraft because it's not in production

MIG 35, 1.42 etc are names observers have come up with.

anyway though who cares?? my only point was that it's not related to the Fulcrum nor is it a variant of the Fulcrum it's a new design

MiG-35 / 1.42 Multirole Front-Line Fighter [MFI]
The new MiG Multirole Front-Line Fighter [MFI - Mnogofounksionalni Frontovoi Istrebiel ] was unveiled publicly on 12 January 1999. The project has been under development since 1986, is variously designated the 1.42, the 1.44, I-42 and I-44 - the "MiG-35" and "MiG-39" designations are informally applied by some observers. This multi-functional front-line fifth-generation fighter was developed by the MIG [Mikoyan & Gurevich] aviation scientific and production complex of the MAPO military-industrial corporation. The first prototype was delivered early in 1994, and in December 1884 taxi-tests were conducted following which further work was suspended due to a shortage of funds. The 35-ton fighter features a single under-fuselage air intake with two AL41F engines of 20 tons thrust each, and a top speed of over 2,500 km/h. The twin-tail "duck" planform features an all-moving canard-type foreplane with a wingspan of about 15 meters and a length of about 20 meters.

FAS's information is dated on severeal topics, it was given the designation MiG-35 earlier this year, and, again, other then that bit you have restated what i said, stop arguing with somebody who's saying the same thing that you are

As I've posted -these names were given by the West not the Russians.
This is about as good as you'll get for a handy and authoritative list:
