I use to not like the MIG, the reason being is that it wasn't fast, not maneuverable compared to the there American counterparts, and wasn't pretty to look at.
Well they still aren't as maneuverable (because they were built like flying tanks) but I do admit those bad boys are fast and do look nice, the newer style of
Migs look more streamlined and are capable aircraft. But with the technological curve the Migs wouldn't compete with the latest generation of fighter jets.
I was quite Inspired by the Mig-29 & Mig-35 that I took inspiration to develop my own type of aircraft (which is 85% complete).
