Watching this short clip on You tube, I was surprised to see this very rare image of a Croatian Mig 21 displayed with multiple armaments one of which is of a mysterious air to air missile. The one I am referring to is the one in the middle of the screen. Not the R-60s (left of screen). The R-60 is known to be used by the CroAF but the missile in the centre. I have no idea what it is and also never new about it in CroAF service before.
To me it looks like a Aim-120 Amraam but of course this could not be used on a Mig 21 of that type. So my question to anyone out there who might know, is it a real missile? Is it a fake used for propaganda purposes? Or did Croatia actually purchase the Aim 120 for either an upgraded Mig-21 force or a new aircraft type both of which never came.
I have always been interested to know what weapon systems were used on Croatian Mig 21s during the war mainly because info of this nature is very scares and some inventive systems were used by the air force but seldom written about.
