MiG MiG-29/MiG-33/MiG-35 Fulcrum - Peru

MiG-29S
Serial: 030
Unit: Esc. de Caza/Bomb 612, Grupo Aereo 6, FAP

The child of the Alto-Canepa War: in reaction to its problems with the FAE during the war, and lacking finances to purchase the additional expensive Mirage 2000s, Peru finally started acquiring MiG-29s from Belarus and then Russia. Eventually a total of 15 MiG-29S, three MiG-29SE, and two MiG-29UB. The example shown here, 030, was the first MiG-29S acquired by FAP and is now operated by Esc. de Caza/Bomb. 612, based in Chiclayo. The fleet has seen some attrition already, then two examples were lost: an unidentified airframe on 2 December 1997, and the serial 031, that crashed on 13 March 2001. In the last two years several examples were modified to become compatible with the R-77/AA-12 active-radar-homing, medium-range air-to-air missile - the first such weapon in the whole Latin America.
