Attained veergatiNo news about the pilots in the aircraft ... God save them..
But chutiyas at IAF headquarters want Angelina Jolie (Rafale) from 2000s only they won't buy and even neglect fresh new Kiara advani (LCA mk1a) even though it means using 1960's old Anastasia (mig21)....
IAF itself had been bitchy about the Tejas Mk1A price, had they signed the deal in 2019, they would have already started receiving the jets.Unfair to blame IAF for red tape when the MoD babus alone took 5 years (after IAF approval) to negotiate price with a PSU under it.
Despite it's 1971 bravado,MIG 21 is the worst fighter jet to enter Indian service, having killed over 200 pilots and a loss of nearly 500 airframes.MiG21s served us well in 1971, it won the battle against the F104 Starfigher of Napakistan. However, every aircraft has to retire somehow. This is an aircraft the Indian army used in the 1971 war. Why can’t it just retire?
It’s just a very old. Even anyway, that’s kind of a myth, there have been others including even MiG27s with a higher crash rate per year.Despite it's 1971 bravado,MIG 21 is the worst fighter jet to enter Indian service, having killed over 200 pilots and a loss of nearly 500 airframes.
It takes crores of Rupees and years of training to make a fighter pilot and all that talent going to dust because the Sarkari Babus and the import-loving top brass cannot replace this antique piece.
