MAPO
MiG-35
ASCC codename: Fulcrum
Multi-Role Fighter

DESCRIPTION:
The MiG-35 is an enlarged and more advanced development of the MiG-29/MiG-33 family seen as a potential replacement for the MiG-29 and Su-27. However, the Russian Air Force does not appear to be interested in the concept and it is now aimed primarily at the export market.

The MiG-35 is often confused with the Multifunctional Fighter (MFI), but it now appears that these are two separate projects. An updated entry on the MiG-35 will be compiled as information becomes available.
