    The Mig-29, as with other Soviet aircraft, started its “career” in the west as artist's impressions.
    Here are 3 of those, of the early 80’s a time when (obviously) not much was known about this aircraft.

    Looks like somebody who has studied Sukhoi. Without some context, not sure whether to be impressed or just note the pics as items of interest.

    That wouldn't have been too terribly difficult, everyone knows what a Foxbat looks like.

    They did get a little imaginative with the Su-25...

    The MiG-29 pix more looks like a Su-15 than a Fulcrum.

    The Su-25 is the Soviet A-10 but not look the same.

    The russians had stolen the plans (or some of them) of the YA-9 (it's said)...
    (The developement of the SU 25 starts four years earlier than this of the YA-9).

    The A-10 wasn't (less or more) superior over the A-9. Just further developed and the production could start earlier.

    Another one of a Su 25
