Repaint and Mod policy for my work

Here are twenty one different versions of the MiG-21. (Hence "Twenty One MiG-21". Catchy, eh!)

Stage 1 release (20 Dec 2004): Egyptian, Vienamese, Polish, India #1, Croatian, Finnish, and "simple grey".
Stage 2 release (3 Sept 2005): Bulgarian, Soviet, Iraqi, Syrian, India #2, Romanian, and "simple desert".
Stage 3 release (30 Jun 2006): Hungarian, India #3, India (Red Archers), Soviet (R version), East German (MF with JATO),
Kamineko, Chiyo's HMX.

Use the correct type of weapons on the MiG-21, get the Russain weapons pack #1.

Updates:
3 Sept 2005: I've shortened the identifying name in the DAT file of both A-A and A-G versions of the Finnish AF MiG-21bis. The old name was too long and YSFlight will treat them both as the same aircraft.

MiG-21 PFM
Egyptian Air Force
Egyptian Air Force MiG-21s has been wearing this camoflage scheme since the time of the War of Attrition in the early 70s, and continue to do so well into the 80s, and can be seen flying along side USAF F-16s during the joint US-Egypt Bright Star exercises.
MiG-21 PFM
Vietnamese Peoples' Air Force
VPAF MiG-21s using high speed slahing attack tactics were able to achieve success against incoming US Air Force and Navy formations. This aircraft (No. 5020) with 12 kill markings belongs to the 927th "Lam Son" Fighter Regiment. It has been flown by several aces of the VPAF.
MiG-21 PFM
Bulgarski Voenno Vzdushni Sili (Bulgarian Air Force)
The post Warsaw Pact era cutback saw the Bulgarian Air Force scrapping most of it's MiG-21 fleet, leaving only the MiG-21 bis variant. This particular PFM "White 66" is now the gate guard at the Graf Ignatievo air base.
MiG-21 MF
Magyar Légierö(Hungarian Air Force)
After the fall of communism, the Hungarian AF reverted from the Warsaw Pact era roundel which was based on the Soviet style red star, to the traditional red/white/green chevron which was used before WW2.
MiG-21 MF
Voenno-Vozdushnie Sili (Soviet Air Force)
VVS aircrafts engaged in operations over Czechoslovakia during the Soviet invasion in August 1968 wears a set of red/white/red "invasion stripes" for identification.
MiG-21 MF
Iraqi Air Force
During the initial stage of the Iran-Iraq war Iraqi MiG-21s suffered badly against Iranian F-4s and F-14s equipped with much more advanced radar and AIM-7E Sparrow missiles. They turned the table somewhat when they were equipped with French Matra R550 "Magic" missiles.
MiG-21 MF
Syrian Air Force
The state of readiness of the MiG-21 fleet in Syrian service has been in steady decline since the 1990s. While a handful of modern MiG-29s has arrived, the bulk of Syrian's fighter force are still made up of MiG-21s and -23s. It was rumored that Syria was negotiating with HAL of India to provide spare parts for the MiG-21s but it is not known if an agreement has been reached.
MiG-21 bis
Siły Powietrzne RP (Polish Air Force)
The last MiG-21 has been retired from the Polish Air Force at the beginning of 2004. Some of the units has been disbanded, while others are flying the TS-11 trainer pending the delivery of the first Polish F-16.
MiG-21 FL
Bharatiya Vayu Sena (Indian Air Force)
The MiG-21 FL is the PF version licence produced in India with a few modifications, the most obvious being the broad-chord tail. This sample is used by the Red Archers, an early Indian Air Force aerobatics team.
MiG-21 bis
Bharatiya Vayu Sena (Indian Air Force)
India is one of the largest operator of MiG-21s outside the USSR, and is one of the two countries licenced to produce the aircraft outside the Soviet Union (the other being China). This example belongs to the 45 Squadron.
MiG-21 bis
Bharatiya Vayu Sena (Indian Air Force)
India is one of the largest operator of MiG-21s outside the USSR, and is one of the two countries licenced to produce the aircraft outside the Soviet Union (the other being China).
MiG-21 bis
Bharatiya Vayu Sena (Indian Air Force)
India is one of the largest operator of MiG-21s outside the USSR, and is one of the two countries licenced to produce the aircraft outside the Soviet Union (the other being China). This example belongs to the 15 Squadron.
MiG-21 bis
Croatian Air Force
After Croatia declared independence, a handful of MiG-21MFs flown by Croatian pilots in the Yugoslavian Air Force defected to their homeland. Most were destroyed during the ensuing war with Yugoslavia. MiG-21 bis now serves as the backbone of the Croatian Air Force.
MiG-21 bis
Suomen Ilmavoimat (Finnish Air Force)
The Finnish Air Force operated the MiG-21 bis since 1978 and they will be replaced with F-18 Hornets.
MiG-21 Lancer-C
Fortele Aeriene Române (Romanian Air Force)
The Lancer is a joint Romania-Israel project to upgrade the MiG-21 MF with modern avionics, radar and fire control systems. This allows the aircraft to operate at a level of capability comparable to that of most NATO countries. Lancer A is a single seat attack version, B is a two seat attack / trainer version, and C is the single seat interceptor version.
MiG-21
Simplified version (grey)
This is a simplified version with a non-transparent canopy, fewer details on the airframe and a very basic paint scheme.
MiG-21
Simplified version (sand / light blue)
Similar to the grey version but with sand colored top and light blue bottom.
MiG-21 MF (rocket assisted take off)
East German Air Force
Most variants of MiG-21s can be equipped with a pair of SPRD-99 rocket boosters to allow for very short field takeoffs. Together they provide an additional 5000kg of thrust.
MiG-21 R
Voenno-Vozdushnie Sili (Soviet Air Force)
The MiG-21R is a tactical reconnaissance aircraft. It carries a detachable (but not jettisonable) camera pod under the belly. It was the first MiG-21 variant to feature the larger full length dorsal spine housing that was used in the later MF model. Also unique to the R model is the wing-tip housing for the radar warning receiver's antennae.
MiG-21 bis
Kamineko
A mysterious MiG-21 bis flown by an unknown but agressive pilot, it is the arch-enemy of "Olga" Sakaki and her F-14AST21 "Mayaa".
MiG-21 SM-HMX
Chiyo Mihama's aircraft
The MiG-21SM-HMX (Hyper Maneuverability eXperiment) is a modified MiG-21SM (similar to a MiG-21MF but with the older R11F2S-300 engine) with canard wings and the latest avionics and fire control systems, making it a versatile aircraft, but somewhat underpowered. To save weight some of the pumbling for external tanks was removed, making the HMX relatively short legged.
