The MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau. Some 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations over a half-century after its maiden flight in 1955. It is the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants). The MiG-21 SMT is a development of the MiG-21 SM with more fuel capacity. This variant is easily spotted thanks to its larger spine. Primary Role: Fighter And Interceptor Aircraft.
In 1990 when the Soviet Union ceased to exist the united German Air Force received 251 former East German MiG-21s. One variant of the MiG-21 were 24 MiG-21SPS that like all the others received new serial numbers, crosses and German flags on the tail. These aircraft only flew a few sorties before they were sent Drewitz and stored until 1992-1993 when most were scrapped. MiG-21SPS 22+02 ˘Der Weisser Hai÷ ˘the white shark÷ first flew in 1968 as former East German LSK #441 and in 1992 was scrapped.
