The last and most capable of the Soviet interceptors, the MiG-29
closed the technological gap between Soviet and NATO fast jets.
After the unification of Germany, the Luftwaffe retained both
squadrons of former East German MiG-29s, so our voices "from the
cockpit" include veteran German pilots as well as Russians. Artwork
and photographs support a text that takes the reader step-by-step
through a MiG-29 mission, revealing how its sensors and weapon
systems can combine to bring down even Tomahawk cruise missiles.
