The MiG-29, NATO name "Fulcrum", is a fourth-generation jet fighter aircraft designed in the Soviet Union for an air superiority role. It was developed at the height of the Cold War to counter new American fighters such as the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle, and the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon. A Soviet response was necessary to avoid the possibility of a new American fighter gaining a serious technological advantage over existing Soviet fighters. The Soviet Union exported MiG-29s to several countries. Because 4th-generation fighter jets require the pilots to have extensive training, air-defense infrastructure, and constant maintenance and upgrades, MiG-29s have had mixed operational history with different air forces. The MiG-29 still remains in use today by the Russian Air Force and many other nations.
