A Mig-21 Bison with an array of its armaments on display. This Bison is from the No. 32 "Thunderbirds" squadron. The Mig-21 is still an excelent aircraft & it definately proved this when the IAF Mig-21 's defeated the USAF F-15 's in "Cope India," the friendly air force exercise.

The photo is beautiful & the angle is amazing. Also the weapons in the picture add to the effect. The quality is also out of this world.

The Mig-21 is known as the Fishbed, but the Indian variant is called the "Bison." :-)

Whoa 21's with R-75!!!!
A pretty deadly combination.

The fact that the IAF pilots flying Mig-21's defeated the USAF pilots in F-15's during Cope India 2004 really goes to show the skill of the IAF pilots.

Like the upgrade and the single piece windshield! The F15's also suffered against the SAAF Cheetah's in Exercise "Heaters and Guns"! The "old Boys" still have what it takes!!!
