The Mikoyan-Gurevich MIG-21 (NATO reporting name „Fishbed“) is a supersonic jetfighter aircraft designed and built by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. More than 30 countries around the world have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations a half-century after its first flight. Its Mach 2 capability exceeds the top speed of many later modern fighter types. Estimates are that more than 10,000 MIG-21s were built, more than any other supersonic jet aircraft.
