    MiG-21MF coded 5121 is currently displayed in the museum of the Vietnam Peoples Air Force in Hanoi. Reportedly, on December 27th, 1972, Pham Tuanflew this aircraft when he shot down an American B-52 taking part in bombing operations during the Linebacker II offensive. It would be the only MiG-21MF killover a Stratofortress, but American sources claim the bomber was lost to a SAM. Pham Tuan would later become the only Vietnamese astronaut. He was a crewmember of Soyuz 37 and orbited the earth 142 times in the Salyut 6 station.For his accomplishments, he was awarded high Vietnamese commendations, and was on of a few foreigners to be awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union.

    This aircraft was delivered to the Czechoslovak Peoples Army as an M version a, sometimes written as MiG-21MA. During a midlife overhaul, it wasbrought to MF standard. This upgrade, among other items, mounted the Tumansky R-13-300 engine. The rendering of the woman and the inscription cameabout at the beginning of summer, 1989, when the 4th Fighter Squadron was disbanded, and the aircraft was transferred to the 5th Fighter Squadron based atLine. After the split of Czechoslovakia, this aircraft was assigned to the Slovak Air Force. MiG-21Ms delivered to Czechoslovakia did not receive a camouflagescheme as such, and flew either in overall silver or light grey colors.

    I This aircraft served in 1979 with the Krasnodar school facility was graced with the name of General Sergey M. Stemenko, former Chief of General Staff of theSoviet Armed Forces. This facility was responsible for training pilots that were sent from countries that at the time had close relations with the Soviet Union.These nations included Iraq, Cuba, Angola, Yemen and Vietnam. Whether this aircraft is a MiG-21MF or SM is uncertain. Suggesting the MF is the fact that this unit trained foreign pilots. However, hinting at an SM is the two-digit fuselage number 03, which could have meant that the bird was taken over from a combat unit ( training aircraft typically carried a three digit number).

    The Nile Valley camouflage scheme appeared on Egyptian aircraft at the end of the seventies. The Egyptian command concluded that the two color schemeas delivered by the Soviets was inadequate for combat in the Middle East. The result was a scheme composed of three tones on the upper surfaces made upof sand, green, and dark grey. The front of the nose was adorned with the head of the Red Demon, but the relevance of this is still uncertain. It is possible that itis a unit marking.
