The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter and interceptor aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union.
Approximately 60 countries on four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations six decades after its maiden flight in 1955.
It made aviation records, becoming the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history, the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and previously the longest production run of a combat aircraft (now exceeded by both the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle and General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon).
A total of 10,645 aircraft were built in the USSR and it remains one of the most iconic and enduring military aircraft of the post-World War 2 period.
