Description

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Hungarian air force was in a very weak state, with their best fighters at the time being a selection of poorly maintained MiG-23MFs. However, in 1993, a welcomed surprise upgrade happened, as the Russian Federation's debt compensation package to Hungary included twenty-eight MiG-29 aircraft, of the 9.12 chassis standard. Hungary would operate these aircraft extensively and begin the most in-depth pilot training program for its air force since the 50s as a result. The Hungarian MiG-29s would begin the end of their service in 1999 when Hungary joined NATO and was essentially forced to upgrade to a NATO fighter aircraft for compatibility and interchangeability purposes. As the JAS-39C Gripen was chosen and purchased, the MiG-29 fleet was slowly retired as deliveries of the Gripen took place over the next decade. The last Hungarian MiG-29 was retired in December 2010, when the decision was made to sell all former Hungarian MiG-29s to the highest bidder.

The ◔MiG-29 (9-12B) is a rank VIII Hungarian jet fighter in the Hungarian sub-tree of the Italian tech tree. It was introduced in Update "Alpha Strike" alongside many other Hungarian aircraft and provides a nice alternative to the F-16A ADF in the Italian tech tree at the same battle rating. Building upon dogfighting doctrine established with the earlier MiG-21MF and MiG-21bis in the Hungarian sub-tree, along with the advanced weapon employment techniques learned with the MiG-23MF that precedes it, the MiG-29 not only builds upon the playstyles of its predecessors, but adds on to it with many new tools and weapons, such as the powerful R-27ER1 missile and a HMD (Helmet Mounted Display) targeting system for its all-aspect IR missiles. In general, the MiG-29 in the Hungarian sub-tree brings a formidable aircraft to that rank for Italian tree players, proving a great alternative to the F-16A ADF at the same battle rating.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
