Mikoyan, formerly Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau (Template:Lang-ru), is a Russian military aircraft design bureau, primarily for fighter aircraft. It was formerly a Soviet design bureau, and was founded by Artem Mikoyan and Mikhail Gurevich as "Mikoyan-Gurevich" and its bureau prefix is "MiG." Upon Mikoyan's death in 1970, Gurevich's name was dropped from the name of the bureau, although the bureau prefix remains MiG. The Russian government is planning to merge Mikoyan with Ilyushin, Irkut, Sukhoi, Tupolev, and Yakovlev as a new company named United Aircraft Building Corporation. The firm also operates several machine-building and design bureaus, including the Kamov helicopter plant.

MiGs follow the convention of using odd numbers for fighter aircraft. Although the MiG-8 and MiG-110 exist, they are not fighters. The MiG-105 "Spiral" was designed as an orbital interceptor, contemporaneous with the U.S. Air Force's cancelled X-20 Dyna-Soar.
- The film Top Gun features re-badged Northrop F-5 fighters as MiG-28s. As Mikoyan uses odd numbers for fighter numbering, this is clearly intended to be fictional and to prevent confusion.
- The MiG-31 'Firefox' was the subject of two novels (Firefox and Firefox Down, both by Craig Thomas) and a 1982 movie, based on the first book.
- The MiG-37 'Ferret-E' is a plastic model kit created by Italeri (also sold by Testors).
- The MiG-242 was featured in the Gerry Anderson production of Joe 90.
- The MiG-28 Agressor was a code name for the US Navy Fighter Weapons School Agressor Squadron F-5 Freedom Fighter during mock engagements.
