The MiG-21F was a light single-seat aircraft, designed in the late 50’s as a further development of the MiG-21. The aircraft passed flight tests in 1959 and was then put into service. That same year, manufacturing began at ‘Aviation Plant 21’ in Gorky.
The MiG-21F was powered by an R11F-300 turbojet engine and carried 2160 litres of fuel housed in six internal fuel tanks and 490 liters in one droppable external tank under the fuselage. Due to its’ take-off and landing capabilities, the MiG-21F was able to be operated from second-class airfields and from unpaved aerodromes.
The aircraft was armed with two underbellies mounted 30mm NR-30 cannons. The fighter was also capable of carrying bombs and missiles on wing pylons. The first ten fighters were built in 1959, with another 79 being produced in 1960.
