Shev, I'll agree that both jets were cool :wink: , but I still have my misgivings about MiGs. There are burnthrough issues with the combustion chambers in the Indian Fishbeds and I know that Bill Reesman's first MiG-17F caught fire in flight. JR007 also put up some interesting pics of MiG-29 construction in the Viper vs. Fulcrum thread. I'd just feel better flying a jet like a Starfighter, Talon, F-5, or Skyhawk.

I wanted only to explain, why I gave such topic: "
F-16A/B w/o AIM-9L vs MiG-21BIS with R-60M and R-13M" And it's why I wrote much OT....
