The MiG-21 Fishbed
The short range MiG-21 Fishbed is the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history and had the longest production run of a fighter aircraft, from 1959 to 1985. The MiG-21 is also the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War. The Fishbed was the first successful Soviet fighter jet combining fighter and interceptor characteristics. A total of 11,500 MiG-21s have been produced in the USSR, India and Czechoslovakia. The MiG-21 is still active even in EU member countries like Bulgaria and Romania (and soon Croatia). Other current MiG-21 operators are Azerbaijan, Angola, Tanzania, Cambodia, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, Eritrea, India, Laos, Libya, Mali, Mongolia, North Korea, Serbia (it is the backbone again with only a few MiG-29s left after the Kosovo War), Syria, Uganda, Vietnam, Yemen, Zambia. The MiG-21 was involved in countless conflicts such as Middle East conflicts, Iran-Iraq War and currently the MiG-21 has been spotted in the Syrian Civil War, fighting in rebel-held areas.
There were three dual seat MiG-21 versions produced. The U, US and the UM version. The MiG-21s in South Africa consist of UM and U versions. The name of one MiG-21 is “Princess of Abundance” as the MiG-21 is a unique combination of responsiveness, reliability, resilience and speed.
