"They are not our usual thugs. Their Fulcrums are a hell of a lot better than the rebel crates."
― Lion 2

The MiG-29A Fulcrum is a fourth-generation fighter. It made its debut in Air Combat and has since been featured in multiple subsequent Ace Combat titles.

History

Strangereal

In the Strangereal universe, the original MiG-29A was developed and adopted by various air forces as a mid-level air superiority aircraft, roughly equal to the F-16C Fighting Falcon, but was generally outfitted in secondary weapons geared towards air-to-ground missions. MIG-29As were fielded during the Belkan War by Belka and Ustio as frontline fighters, with various notable pilots using such jets in frontline operations.[1][2] One of the most notable Fulcrum units was the Belkan 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron GrauWespe, which gained fame on the western fronts before being shot down in the Battle of B7R.[3]

Fulcrums were also used by the ISAF Air Force and the Federal Erusea Air Force during the 2003 Usean Continental War.[4], with one Erusian ace pilot, Mrkos, utilizing a Fulcrum with a crimson red paint scheme.[5]

The aircraft was also fielded by the Osean Air Defense Force and Yuktobanian Air Force during the Circum-Pacific War.[6]

Fulcrums were fielded in the Lighthouse War, the extent of which is currently unclear.[7]

During the Aurelian War, the Leasath Air Force utilized the aircraft in moderate numbers.[8]

Joint Assault universe

During the Valahia Crisis, the MiG-29A followed a similar path as it did in Strangereal, with no other models being known to be in operation. It was the preferred aircraft of Faryd Gaviria prior to his desertion from Martinez Security, and was deployed in large numbers by the Valahia in their terrorism campaign.[9]

Assault Horizon universe

228400 2014-06-03 00002

A Task Force 108 MiG-29A flying over Moscow

Within the Assault Horizon universe, the MiG-29A was the main small-scale fighter aircraft of the Russian Air Force, with various squadrons operating A-model units by the 2010s. Government loyalists and New Russian Federation supporters used Fulcrums during the 2015-2016 civil war in Russia, including the Molot Squadron, which accompanied the Warwolf Squadron throughout the campaign to terminate the coup by destroying the NRF leadership in Moscow.[10] The MiG-29ME export model was also developed in this world, differing only in the adoption of canards for increased mobility; several airframes were given by the Blatnoi to Nigerian anti-government troops during the 2021 civil war.[11]

Game analysis

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

"A medium-sized fighter developed as a replacement for contemporary lead planes such as the MiG-21. Its excellent handling makes it a superior fighter, and it was predicted to be pitted against the F-15. Its nickname is "Lastochka," the Russian word for the swift-flying swallow."

Ace Combat Infinity

"A medium-sized master fighter developed as the successor to the MiG-21. In a one-on-one dogfight, it has strong maneuvering capabilities due to its refined aerodynamics. Though it is similar in shape to the Su-27, which was developed around the same time, it was built smaller in size since it is used in close proximity to front-line bases. Its NATO codename is "Fulcrum"."
