A North Vietnamese Air Force MiG-21.

The MiG-21 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-21; NATO reporting name "Fishbed") is a Soviet supersonic jet aircraft designed by Mikoyan-Gurevich in the late 1950s, and was the result of further development of the MiG-19. It was largely exported to the communist bloc, as well as other Soviet-supplied nations. It is a relatively small and agile aircraft, and was a thorough match to American aircraft of the time, giving the MiG-21 a sound reputation as an effective fighter, and is still in active service with some air forces today.

In Battlefield Vietnam, the MiG-21 is an advanced jet fighter operated by the North Vietnamese Army. It is flown alongside the MiG-17, it is the NVA counterpart to the American F-4 Phantom II.


Unlike the F-4 Phantom, the MIG-21 has cannons and unguided rockets opposed to heatseekers and unguided bombs, unlike the MiG-17, it has only one cannon which can lead to it being having a huge disadvantage, however thanks to its superior maneuverability it can out do the A-7 Corsair and occasionally the F-4 Phantom. Its secondary armament are unguided rockets, which can be used in salvos of four before reloading, and are fairly accurate. These can work well against tanks, APCs and any light vehicle. However tanks require at least four direct-hits to destroy them or three in the back while most other light vehciles such as APCs, boats and jeeps require one to three shots.
