Επειδή υπάρχει κάποιο αυξημένο ενδιαφέρον για τα Αιγυπτιακά Migs παραθέτω τις παρακάτω πληροφορίες και ένα αλμπουμακι με camo references.
Egypt belongs to the countries that gathered the most comprehensive combat experience using the MiG-21. During the wars against Israel the MiG-21 was the spearhead of the Egypt Air Force.
Since the Suez conflict in 1956 Egypt was massively supported by the Soviet Union and their allies with arms and advisors. From the early 1960's among the deliveries were also Soviet and Czech built MiG-21s. In the beginning of the 1967 war most of these aircraft were destroyed on the ground by the Israelis during their surprise attacks. More aircraft were lost due to the superiority of the Israeli pilots in the air.
After the war new aircraft - among them MiG-21s of newer versions - compensated the losses. Beside this tactics and infrastructure were improved, so that Egypt was much better prepared for the Yom Kippur war in 1973. But the Israelis kept the air superiority. Their heavy losses were caused mainly by the Arab surface-to-air missiles.
Growing mistrust between Egypt and its main weapons supplier - starting with the throw out of the Soviet advisors in 1972 - then stopped the deliveries of MiG-21. Despite this Egypt received later further MiG-21s in form of Chinese F-7B. Some of this aircraft together with a number of MiG-21MF / UM are still in service but are due to be replaced by the F-16 soon.
In 1970's and early 1980's the Egyptian MiG-21s were subject to several upgrade programs set up with Soviet and later Western help. It is an interesting fact that Egypt was the sole country that fielded a recce version designated MiG-21RF. Unlike the MiG-21R with its external recce pod the RF carried its three cameras inside the fuselage below the cockpit.
