MiG MiG-21/J-7 Fishbed/Mongol | 16-22

Aircraft model
Chengdu F-7I (F-7B)

F-7Is form the backbone of TL's combat capability. The example here is depicted carrying Chinese-made PL-7 missiles, which is a copy of French Matra R.550 Magic Mk.1. The confrontation with Thailand, in 2001, brought to the surface reports about poor availability and condition of TL's F-7s. Surely enough, they were no match for excellently trained and motivated pilots of RTAF F-5s and F-16s.
