The MiG-21MF/ML is a Multirole Combat Aircraft available to East Germany and PACT decks. It first appeared in Wargame: AirLand Battle.

HistoryEdit

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF (NATO reporting name FISHBED-J) is a single-engine, single-seat, supersonic fighter developed for the Soviet Air Force and exported to Soviet allies. First flown in 1970, the MF was a modernized variant of the MiG-21 with a new engine, built-in 23mm cannon, and improved avionics. The type was also made compatible with the R-60M Molnyia air to air missile.

OverviewEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

The MiG-21MF is an inexpensive multi-role combat aircraft available to East German and PACT decks. It is armed with a 23mm cannon, sixty-four rockets and two R-60 Molniya air to air missiles. It is largely the same aircraft as the MiG-21SM of the Soviet Union. It carries no ECM and is one of the few aircraft with a medium-rated stabilizer. While the aircraft is vulnerable to SAMs and long-range AAMs thanks to its lack of ECM, at only 55 points per aircraft, the MiG-21MF is a particularly cost-effective light strike aircraft which can also effectively attack enemy helicopters. The sheer number of rockets it fires makes the type good for spot-removal of enemy ground assets, and its high speed allows the type to get to the combat zone quickly.

Red Dragon: The MiG-21MLEdit

The MiG-21ML is a relatively inexpensive multi-role combat aircraft available to East German and REDFOR decks. It has almost identical configuration to the MiG-21MF of AirLand Battle, to include the same loadout and general aircraft characteristics, but with weak ECM (10%). The ML is more expensive, however, costing 75 points per aircraft. Its strengths and weaknesses are largely the same as the MF in AirLand Battle, albeit not as cost-effective.
