Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF Fishbed East German Air Force JG-1, Red 511, East Germany
The East German Air Force operated from 1956 until the reunification of Germany in 1990. As East Germany was the front-line country of the Warsaw Pact, it received special treatment from the Soviets and was provided with advanced technology aircraft and equipment that were normally reserved for Soviet forces only. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the MiG-21 was the LSK's main fighter and from 1972 to 1974, the LSK received fifty MiG-21M/MFs.
Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21BIS Fishbed Designed as a successor to the Soviet Union's family of early MiG jet fighters, the MiG-21 was first flown on February 14, 1955. This supersonic jet fighter was the first Soviet aircraft to successfully combine fighter and interceptor characteristics. Its delta wing design gave it the ability to climb quickly and its light loading further improved its performance, making it possible for a skilled pilot to successfully engage in dogfights with contemporary enemy fighters. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, the MiG-21 still serves the air forces of many nations and has become the most-produced supersonic jet in history.
