Lore

We defend China's airspace!
- MiG

The so-called MiG was first acquired by a cunning combination of judicious military imports and industrial espionage from a former Russian research fighter almost two decades ago. The fallout from the previously classified aircraft appearing on Chinese production lines did much to prevent the further export of more modern Russian weapons to the PLA, and some analysts even mark it as a contributing factor in the lead up to the current war, but regardless, the constantly-upgraded 'MiG' soldiers on in the Chinese air forces as the backbone of their interception and strike capabilities. When it was found they could not deliver an acceptable payload of napalm via their two missiles alone, requiring large numbers to trigger the desired firestorm effects, their weapons loadout was overhauled to feature a new payload of four powerful flak missiles, and the napalm delivery duties transferred to the newly-reactivated Hellfire MiGs. This has resulted in their becoming one of the most lethal air-to-air fighters in service in the current conflict, and the shaped-charge delivery system for the flak burst is also highly effective against vehicles. Streamlined production facilities have even made them cheaper to assemble.
