One of the long term builds on my top shelf is a RAF Mig-29... The idea was what if instead of a special relationship with america during WW2 a relationship had developed with russia... Fast forward a few years and the Tornado ADV never happened....

I got as far as the cockpit and other builds got in the way...

Was the MiG-29 ever used as a bomb truck?

Yes it was, yes it can carry bombs and other ordnance.  The MiG-29 replaced the MiG-23 and MiG-27 in addition to the Su-17/22/ Fitter.  The aircraft is capable of carrying variety of air to ground munitions/stores to include nuclear free fall bombs, rockets, and precision guided air to surface weapons.  These weapons use stores pylons that are different in shape from those used for air to air weapons.

It also depends upon how you define 'bomb truck' since often ground attack is carried out using missiles rather then conventional bombs.

Essentially the equivalent of the F-16 is what I'm enquiring about but the above is enough to validate the concept.
Thanks.

One word comprehensive review of the Great Wall Hobby MiG-29 9-13:  Jawdrop.

OK, that being put forth one look through of the kit made it pretty clear I'd like to build it up clean save for a centerline pod.  Methinks a combination fuel/recce pod would serve well enough.   


(Yes, there is another kit in Ye Olde Stash awaiting its stores.)

Why thank-you.

 Hoping to source the missiles out of the KH Gripen and hang them beneath the GWH kit.
