Nothing to be proud of.. it is a shame in 50 years we could not rollout a good fighter.!!! It may be proud moment for MIG as they have protected India and its interest for 50 years.

Shame on this system which encourages this!!.

It was and it is a fruitful cooperation. The only problem was that the Mig-21's should have been somehow allowed to retire a few years earlier.

Bottom line is we should have phased out the Mig 21couple decades again. It belongs to the museum not in IAF hangers. The IAF shouldn't be "celebrating" 50 with any fighter jet. Especially one that has coated so many lives of young pilots. It's marking of 50 is simply a joke and must never be repeated again. It's criminal.

Indian Air Force destroyed MIG credibility. Earned the magnificent sobriquet flying coffins. Hope they dont repeat the same with in coming Rafales.

I can see stupidity coming to the fore here. Give a person anonymity and he will prove how much nonsense he can provide..THe MIG-21 is,was and will be always be regarding as a legendary fighter. The first areodynamically stable MACH 2 fighter built in the world it was a witness of soviet ingenuity and design brilliance. The MIGs have gone through various updations and improvements to make them a match for the fighters of the current generation. The latest upgrade the Mig-21 Bison has a Datalink, powerful radar and BVR capability along with extreme acceleration speeds that make it a… Read more »

This is the state of the nation as violent & volatile neighbors roll out 5gen fighters, we hang on to dear past making obsolete methods of warring our only hopes for defence. 50 years of Mig21, 25 years in making a modern fighter…And Indian Military gets represented by a man wearing Lungi internationally !

@Ram Reagrdless of how good the Mig 21 used to be 50 years ago. Today is it is nothing more then an easy target for the enemy. The Mig 21bison does not have a "powerful radar", it's BVR capability is modest. It's range and payload sucks. It's no good for air superiority or deep strike penetration with heavy payloads. Let alone the fact that it is out matched by every modern fighter in the world. Modern airfighter capabilities have gone far ahead to make the Mig 21 and antique piece. China is already on to developing low observable stealthy fighters.… Read more »

Yes 50 years on and still we are not able to produce a decent MMRCA but IAF is busy in celebrating 50 years of MIG-21.Yes I do accept the fact MIG-21 was the result of SOVIET era ingenuity and design brilliance but there is something called as fact,can a MIG-21 operate in an area denial zone at present scenario or can it perform the the role of ground attack in an area denial zone. And yes don't forget during Kargil 1999 "OPERATION SAFED SAGAR" first casualties were MIG-21 & MIG-27 paki's were able to bring down MIG-21's with stinger missiles… Read more »

@joy The MIG-21 was never INTENDED to be a deep penetration fighter. IT was always a point defence role with good interceptor capabilities. It is a gas guzzler. We have the JAGS and future Rafales for this role.Note: I never mentioned that the MIG-21 is better than the fighters of todays era. Obviously NOT. But it can definitely give a fight after the upgradation program . Thats what I meant. Read up on the cope India -2004 and the US pilots assesment of the mig-21 to understand more on what i have said. WE ARE NOT going to be fighting… Read more »
