Iran’s Most Modern Fighter MIG-29 Unit Demonstrates Anti Aircraft Capabilities
The Iranian Air Force currently fields two MiG-29 squadrons, all comprised of MiG-29A/UB variants which are the most basic models produced.
Recenly, video has emerged showing very clearly an Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, or IRIAF, MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter jet taking part in a live-fire air-to-air missile drill alongside an F-5 Tiger II jet.
The MiG-29 and the F-5 begin by flying in fingertip formation, with the Fulcrum tucked in behind the American-made fighter’s left wing.
As the MiG pulls level with the F-5, the latter launches an aerial target, which then streaks ahead of the Fulcrum.
