Several MIG-29s can be seen in the level "The Coup" taking off from a OpFor airbase and flying overhead. They are probably also responsible for sinking the ship in "Crew Expendable". A pair of MiGs fly over the launch base in "All In". When a Spetsnaz or OpFor player calls in an airstrike in multiplayer, three MiG-29s will deliver the payload.
Several MiG-29s are seen in New York City fighting American F-15s. Some are seen in the mission "Turbulence" escorting the Russian President's Il-96-300PU. Also, in the level "Iron Lady," the AC-130 pilot will say "MiG inbound" when targeted with a missile after the building with RPGs is destroyed.
Unlike the previous installments of the Modern Warfare series, in multiplayer, the precision airstrike no longer has F-15s used for factions (SAS, Delta, etc.) and is replaced with MiG-29's for all factions with desert camouflage. The cockpit is completely opaque so no pilots are visible.
