Details

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It was popularly nicknamed "Balalaika", from the aircraft's planform-view resemblance to the Russian stringed musical instrument or olowek (English: pencil) by Polish pilots due to the shape of its fuselage.Early versions are considered second-generation jet fighters, while later versions are considered to be third-generation jet fighters. Approximately 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations a half-century after its maiden flight. The fighter made aviation records. At least by name, it is the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history and the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants).

The MIG-21 is a simple, robust aircraft developed to serve as a high-speed heavily armed supersonic fighter interceptor for the Soviet Air Force. The small, economical MIG-21 also proved to be a popular export that was sold to many Soviet allies in the 1960's and 1970's. Even today, this small, rugged airplane continues to serve in some national air forces.
