    As Blackwater told, there are two turbofan engines, its just the angle from which its taken doesn't shows both of them.
    More such angles are here... you can't see in them too... :D

    Never heard of Single Variant in Mig-29.
    It was the first one to have two turbofans...

    @cloud_9 can't see your pic. :taunt: :taunt: :taunt:

    Its Turbofan which is underneath the jet. There are two turbofans. Its just that you can't see them. See the first pic of thread by @sesha_maruthi27. Though you can't see it under the wings but have a close look near the right tail-fin, you can see the frame of right exhaust.

    Check the roundels its far simpler to confirm if its IAF bird,the photo seems to be of the period late 1990s
