Default This is new? Mig-29 in DCS brake apart with just 7,6 Gs

Today I was amazed when I wanted to perform a right turn with some Gs and the Mig-29S literally broke apart.

As I suspected the enemy missile never get close enough to hit me and this incident happen right at the moment I perform the turn I decided review the Track.

AND yes the airframe did brake apart with the result of killing myself.

All right but the very weird is my payload was 4 R-73 and 2 R-27ER pulling 7,6 Gs.

If you want replicate this and see...

For me this is really weird because I lot of time I have seen F-15 turning really hard with fuel tanks and now see this in Mig-29 with a payload like that amazed me a lot.

I'm aware Russian fighters kinda like "handle with care" jets but 7 G seems too low for breaking apart. Dunno I might be wrong.
No need to compare with the mighty Eagle, we've been there before. Just wait untill Tharos chime in lol j/k...

I always thought the MiG-29 like the Sukhoi is limited to 7G at certain speeds

Dont pull too hard while supersonic. The 29 has no g limiter. What you pull is what you get.

VVS tests of the 9-12/9-13 states a maximum of +7/-2g with a standard 2xR27R and 2xR60 without ventral fuel tank around .8 Mach
R27 series have a limit of +5g for launch conditions.

I exceed the AoA limit, that was the problem. The fuel was half and no center tank at this moment.

??? Not sure what you mean by this.

OTOH, I've just taken a few test flights with 6 AAMs, beginning the flight with 95% internal fuel (starting gross weight 15,000 Kg), and was hitting a high of 12 Gs down through 7 Gs (8-9 Gs repeatedly) during the course of the flight without issues.
