When Boris calls in a air strike using his laser designator, these Russian MiGs are called in for the job. They cruise at fast speeds in search of Boris' laser and hurl thermobaric bombs at their target, devastating the stability of the structure and leaving it in flames. Albeit old, the Federation is pleased with the performance of the MiG-45 and some of them even operate off captured civilian airstrips. In order to reserve the thermobaric equipment for the most important targets however, MiG-45s operating off such airstrips carry conventional bombs that are effective against both vehicles and structures.
Behind the scenes
Prior to 1.87 the MiG-45 was named MiG Bomber, which now becomes the name of what was formerly named Hellfire MiG.
As of 1.8 the MiG-45 can no longer be targeted by enemy anti-air.
The MiG-45 is loosely based off the MiG from Yuri's Revenge, as in both games it is called in by Boris to bombard ground structures.
