Operator
Somali Air Corps (SAC)
Aircraft model
MiG-21MF

In the hands of Somali pilots the MiG-21MF proved no match for far better trained and more experienced Ethiopian and Israeli pilots. In fact, very early after the initial Somali attacks and invasion of Ogaden the EtAF F-5s were operating offensively into the Somali airspace, flying 'training sorties' even over the Hargheisa AB. It was during these 'training sorties' that the Israeli pilots scored five confirmed kills against SAC MiG-21s, thus winning the air superiority battle of this war.
