The MiG-21FL 'C750' was the mount of Flt.Lt. Bharat B. Soni on 12 December 1971, when he shot down the F-104A flown by Sqn. Ldr. M.E.Middlecoat, of the No. 9 Sqn PAF. The aircraft was the only one out of six 'Type 77s' from the No. 28 Sqn deployed to Jamnagar airfield (including C699, C711, C720, C750, C765 and C1115) and armed with the GP-9 (or GSh-9) gun pack - together with an ad-hoc gyro sight - but this installation proved its worth beyond any doubt.
