The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 Fishbed, a lightweight air-combat fighter, is one of the most famous military aircraft in the world. No other warplane has been manufactured in such large numbers (over 10,000 in the Soviet Union and about 2,000 in China and India) since World War II. Nor has any other fighter served with so many air forces (the current count is 56). This global success was the MiG design bureau’s fourth in succession in the immediate postwar era.

Powered by one Tumansky R-11F-300 rated at 12,675 lb (w/ afterburner), the MiG-21 was easy to maintain, tough in the harshest environments, and very affordable. It was designed to climb fast to high altitudes, at all heights, and to excel in close combat.

This book covers all MiG-21 upgrades and variants, as well as combat and armament specifications. Over 300 photos are used to illustrate the story of the MiG-21. It features technical diagrams and gives a comprehensive development history. Other topics include design, development, structural detail, international production, trials, comparisons, and much more.

Comments to eBook Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-21 Fishbed - Warbird Tech Vol. 45

This is the first Warbird Tech Series publication that I have purchased and reviewed, and I am very pleased with what the authors have provided.

The MiG 21 series of jet fighters was the most widely produced jet fighter of all times, with more than 12,000 manufactured. The present volume is profusely illustrated and detailed; all variations are covered, including the two-seat MiG 21-UM trainers. A fairly detailed combat history is included, and the aircraft was a superb dogfighter. In spite of propaganda spin doctoring during the Vietnam war, the Mig 21 was not outclassed by technically more sophisticated F4 Phantoms. This airplane was indeed a thoroughbred performer.

This book is absolutely first-rate, in both information and quality of production. Highly recommended!

The book is organized in a familiar way: initial development, technical description, versions (MiG-21s but also Chengdu's J/F-7), operational use, a list of the various countries that used the aircraft and technical drawings. Yes the book is organized like most Yefim Gordon's monographies... and just like his MiG-21 Aerofax book in fact. About 70-80% of the text and pictures comes from the Aerofax. Only the chapter about the operational use and the MiG-21 modelling chapter are new. The text update is pretty superficial. The later is particularly poor. The line drawings are drawn by Vladimir Klimov and they're great but a lot of the ones that were in the Aerofax have been removed for some reason.

Since the Aerofax is out of print, this Warbirdtech book is currently one of the best reference book about the MiG-21. However if you already own the Aerofax book the Warbirdtech is hardly worth buying since it doesn't bring much new information.

I was too exited to open this book. But when i flipped through the pages i found that almost half of the book was dedicated to the development of this aircraft, which i found was not much interesting. Very little has been covered about the Mig-21 in action. Further there are no 3 views in color. Surprisingly very little attention is given to the largest operator of the MiG-21 outside the Soviet Union which is the Indian Air Force. Colored photos are very less. The section on Modeling the Mig-21 is helpful. It tells you which kits are available in the international market and in what scale. Price quotes of some well known kits are also given which is helpful for aero-modelers

Overall i am not happy with this book and would not like to stock it in my collection.

Great on details. However, 98% photos are black and white - big turn off for me.
