FULCRUM Escorting a BACKFIRE
by Richard J. Terry, 1986

The MiG-29 FULCRUM all-weather, air superiority fighter-interceptor, seen in company with a TU-22M BACKFIRE strategic bomber, reflected the USSR's continuing drive to modernize its air forces in the mid-1980s. The FULCRUM was fitted with AA-10 missiles and Moscow's most modern look-down/shoot down radar--technology made possible, in part, by technology thefts from the West.
