The fight was filmed by two GoPro cameras – one was installed on a cockpit canopy while the other was mounted on pilot's helmet.
The video clearly shows how the pilot launches air-to-air missiles – both forward and backwards – and fires the plane's autocannon.
The MiG-29SMT (NATO reporting name: Fulcrum-E) is an advanced version of the MiG-29 multirole fighter aircraft.
The MiGs involved in this dogfight were among a group of jets that was recently transferred to the Leningrad Region to take part in a military exercise. A total of six fighter aircraft and about 50 ground technicians are involved in the drills, which are scheduled to end on August 28.
