Правила и положения (Rules and Regulations)
« on: October 01, 2018, 07:48:59 PM »


A (Very) Brief History, taken from Wikipedia:

Mikoyan was established on December 8, 1939 as the Pilot Design Department of the Aviation Plant #1 and headed by Artem Mikoyan and Mikhail Gurevich. It was later renamed "Experimental Design Bureau named after A.I. Mikoyan" otherwise known as the Mikoyan Design Bureau or Mikoyan OKB. In 1964 Gurevich retired, and Mikoyan died in 1970. He was succeeded by Rostislav A. Belyakov, and in 1978 the enterprise was named after Mikoyan.

In 1995, Mikoyan OKB was merged with two production facilities to form the Moscow Aviation Production Association "MiG" (MAPO-MiG). In the 1990s MiG began developing Mikoyan Project 1.44, a fifth-generation jet fighter, but the project was hampered by a lack of funding and was eventually canceled.

In December 1999, Nikolai Nikitin was appointed the corporation's General Director and General Designer. Nikitin focused most of the company's resources on the development of the Tu-334 passenger aircraft at the expense of military programs. This prompted the resignation in December 1999 of many of its leading military aircraft designers, including the chief designers and their deputies for the MiG-29 and MiG-31 programs.

Nikitin was replaced by Valery Toryanin in November 2003, who was in turn replaced by Alexey Fedorov in September 2004. In 2006, the Russian government merged 100% of Mikoyan shares with Ilyushin, Irkut, Sukhoi, Tupolev, and Yakovlev as a new company named United Aircraft Corporation. Specifically, Mikoyan and Sukhoi were placed within the same operating unit.

As of 2018 MiG's business consists of modernizing existing Mig-29; developing of a carrier based MiG-29K variant and a 4++ fighter MiG-35.


With that, we begin:

From: Ministry of Defense
To: Mikoyan and Gurevich Design Bureau

You are hereby authorized to design, construct and test new vehicles for introduction into The Motherland's arsenal(s).  These can be aircraft, spacecraft, surface or submersible naval craft or even land vehicles!  The only limits are those set by the creative geniuses of  your esteemed Design Bureau.  What follows may be considered guidelines for your successful endeavors!

Для Родины!

1. The MiG Group Build will run from 1 October, 2018 until 30 November, 2018.

2. HAVE FUN!

3. Digital and Physical designs are welcome.

4. Air, Space, Sea, Land are all possible environments - the only limiting factor is your imaginations, and that the designs have some identifiable feature of the MiG Design Bureau in their appearance.

5. Direct all questions, complaints and bribes to the Moderator. 

6. Most of all, HAVE FUN!
