The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21PFM (NATO reporting name FISHBED-F) is a single-engine, single-seat, supersonic fighter developed for the Soviet Air Force. First flown in 1966, the PFM was a modernized variant of the MiG-21PF with an upgraded radar, IFF transponder, a built-in 23mm cannon with 200 rounds, and improved avionics. The same year, the MiG-21PFM was made compatible with the Kh-66 air to surface missile.
The MiG-21PFM is an inexpensive tank-hunter available to North Korean and REDFOR decks. The PFM costs a scant 65 points per aircraft to field. Its Kh-66 anti-tank missile is particularly deadly, with an AP value of 28. It can defeat any NATO tank's front armor, and with two aboard, the MiG-21PFM can cause devastating losses by targeting top-end NATO armor. The major drawback of the Kh-66 is its poor accuracy, making both missiles liable to miss their target. The MiG-21PFM's chief disadvantages are its lack of ECM and lack of aerial missile compliment, but given its primary role and 65 point cost, these drawbacks are not significant. The type does carry a single GSh-23L cannon for defense.
