The original plan called for Cuba to purchase 35 - 45 jet fighters for their Cuban Revolutionary Air Force/DAAFAR that would be enough to equip a regiment but because of Soviet economic hard times they were forced to settle for twelve MiG-29A Fulcrums and two dual-seat MiG-29UB "Fulcrum Bs). The aircraft arrived in October 1989 and after assembly were test flown on April 19, 1990. The aircraft is painted in the standard Soviet light grey and grey-green camouflage pattern. In 1997 this aircraft was based with 231st Fighter Sqn, "Playa Giron" Guard Brigade, Cuban Revolutionary AF, San Julian AB.

Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum-A

Designed to help the Soviet Union attain air superiority, the MiG-29 fighter was first flown on October 6th, 1977. The MiG-29, known as the "Fulcrum," has a high-mounted bubble canopy and twin jet engines with diagonal-shaped air intakes and large exhausts. Its tapered, swept-back wings and boom-mounted tail fins give it its classic look. Armed with medium and short-range missiles and unguided weapons for ground and sea-surface targets, the MiG-29's sight is a helmet-mounted system-the pilot chooses his targets by looking at them. Even today the Fulcrum remains a potent adversary, and will remain in service for at least another decade.
