Madagascar received a number of MiG-21MFs and MiG-21UMs from Russia, in 1996. The exact number of delivered examples remains unknown: known is only that they were operated for a relatively short period of time (two or three years) and are ever since in 'active storage' at Ivato. All AAM MiG-21s are painted light Silver-Grey, and have their serials applied on the fin, as well as the title 'TAFIKA ANABAKABAKA' on the nose. The situation with serials is not entirely clear: there are only two serials for MiG-21MFs, '169' or '269' and '255'. One MiG-21UM was certainly serialled '339'.
