"Trail in Infinity": Serbian Air Force said goodbye to MiG-21 fighters

71

The Serbian Air Force has finally said goodbye to the Soviet MiG-21 fighters. Farewell ceremony with the legendary aircraft took place at the airfield in Batainitsa.


The Soviet fighter MiG-21, which has been in service with the Serbian Air Force for 58 years, has completed its service. Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic, Air Force Commander Lieutenant General Dusko Jarkovic, veterans of the Air Force who flew the MiG-21 arrived at the ceremony for the withdrawal of the last fighter from service, called "Trail in Infinity".

The last fighter was flown by the water arch for many years of service in the Serbian Air Force. In total, 1962 MiG-1986s were purchased from 261 to 21.


Instead of the Soviet MiG-21 fighters, the MiG-29 was introduced to the Serbian Air Force. In total, at the moment, the Serbian Air Force has one full-fledged squadron of 14 MiG-29s in a fully operational state. Of these, six fighters were transferred by Russia, four - by Belarus and four were of their own, left over from the time of Yugoslavia. Russia and Belarus donated the fighters free of charge, all of them underwent modernization.

It is specified that the "Belarusian" MiGs underwent modernization at the aircraft plant in Baranovichi, while those transferred by Russia were modernized in Serbia at the Moma Stanojlovic military aircraft repair plant in Batajnica with the participation of Russian specialists. In addition, thanks to the Russian side, the Serbs were able to modernize the four MiG-29s that remained in service with the Air Force (three single-seat MiG-29Bs and one twin MiG-29UB).

    I wonder if these decommissioned MiGs will "go for a walk" somewhere in Africa.?.

          Yes, if science, engineering schools and production have been killed over the past 30 years, then even this option will no longer work. It's like a joke about a lonely cowboy being chased by thirty Indians.

            Science has been killed in 30 years ?! And write already at once Putin killed science in Russia.

            And where did Russia get new Calibers, Onyxes, Zircons, Su-57, Armata, Coalitions, ships of Project 20380, Project 22350, nuclear submarines of Borei and Yasenya?

            Or say that it was all invented and invented 50 years ago, but for some reason they didn’t do anything.

            Although the USSR sold both oil and gas and metals and timber and weapons.

            But the people in the USSR were wiping their ass with a newspaper - this is an indicator of the power of the system that you are drooling over here, taking the merits of modern Russian science.

            What the hell is the MiG-21 for in modern warfare? What will the OVT engine give him? It will still be inferior in all characteristics to modern 4th generation fighters !!!

            Little lesson for you from the Jews, where they shot down about 80 such planes in one battle in 1982 during Operation Medvedka 19?

              How can I tell you ...
              The Kalibr family missiles were created on the basis of two projects: the strategic nuclear cruise missile 1975M1984 with a combat radius of 3 km, developed during the period from 10 to 2500 at the Novator SMKB, and the Alpha anti-ship missile competition (ROC "Turquoise"). ..However, the beginning of the collapse of the USSR suspended the introduction of this product
              - for example, and the rest in the same spirit.

                I am from the century of the USSR. A country that fell apart thanks to clever people like you who believed that everything in the USSR was just fine with science and the economy and with production, and that a newspaper for cleaning up is a huge progress, not a mug.

                But how did it happen that with such clever people the USSR ceased to exist? And in the field of the military-industrial complex, it has always been catching up in most systems.

                And now trolls are climbing out and starting to be smart that everything was invented in the USSR, they just did not have time to do it, the country collapsed.

                And so yes, Putin killed everything and science and the army and industry.

                Only this, under Putin, the country got out of debt, under Putin, the salary increased 45 times, under Putin there are several cars in the family, mortgages on their homes and trips abroad are the norm, under Putin today they build tanks, airplanes, ships, under Putin we we sell food for tens of billions of dollars !!!

                And with your science, which, according to you, killed in 30 years, the USSR could not feed itself with grain, bought it in the West. I wonder how we would fight against them, if they stopped selling grain to us, what would we feed the people and the army with?

                    If you live by the "backlog of the USSR", this does not mean that others are stuck in the era of war communism. What kind of backlog of the USSR are we talking about, our poor fellow? Are you still producing the Kommunar tractor and collecting spikelets?

                  There was a shortage of grain, mainly fodder, which was purchased. Now go to the grocery store (I can't go myself - it's too far to go) and see how much meat and meat products are imported, and how many are of our own.

                  Strategic reserves. In the mid-1980s, dad once brought a shmat of beef from the store, and it had a blue 1957 brand on it. Okay, we ate it, normal frozen beef, of course not steamy, but at that time it was normal. And I heard from a friend that he was dressed in the kitchen when dinner was cooked from American Lendleus stew "second front", again in the 1980s.

And about the fact that your livestock population has fallen in comparison with the USSR, and, accordingly, the share of domestic livestock products in total consumption, I read somewhere and see no reason not to trust what I read.

And here we buy the Belarusian herring Santa Bremor, which is very tasty by the way, but Belarus has no access to the sea. But it is marked Made in Belorussia.

                I absolutely agree with you. But you see, what's the matter. All these "vsepropalschiki" are actually either local imperfections, or from behind a hillock they sprinkle all kinds of filth. You shouldn't pay too much attention to this rabble. They write all kinds of filth only for the sake of being as strong an irritant as possible. For this our "partners" will let them smoke and finish. And the less we pay attention to all this riffraff, the less they will receive leftovers from their owners. This scum does not need to prove anything. It is high time to pull out this rabble and dispose of it right by the roots. These times are right. All the harder the power is taken for a rag-tag of all stripes. And this is frankly pleasing. And Russia of eternal life and prosperity.

                I, like you, from the era of the USSR. But I am sure that there were both good and bad things in those days. And now all these nuances are present in the country. And that's okay. But I am sure of one thing, and I will not give up my words completely - we had a happy childhood in the USSR. Calm on the streets, excellent food, excellent food in schools and pioneer camps, circles, sections and the absence of youth drug addiction and all kinds of substance abusers. We had the same starting positions. And who and how took advantage of his youth is his personal merit, happiness or a cross.

            Syria seems to have recognized the loss of 48 fighters and this is not in one battle. A fighter, if modernized in a modern way, can turn out to be quite decent and economical to maintain.

              Syria can say whatever you want, the fact remains - the Jews rolled out the most powerful air defense area where there were 1000 Soviet specialists and shot down a bunch of aircraft, with practically no losses.

              They shot down because their planes were seen farther and could attack from a greater distance, with more advanced missiles and had greater speed and maneuverability, thanks to which they evaded Syrian missiles.

              Where is the powerful radar mounted on the MiG-21? Into the container? How many missiles will he take and which ones? The whole world is following the path of reducing visibility, and the MiG-21 will glow like a criminal reflector and be visible to everyone. Its speed is low, so is its range.

              It loses in everything to modern 4th generation aircraft. Well, why spend money on its modernization if it will be inferior to competitors anyway?

              There is no need.

                I cannot agree with you. At least in everything. Israel carried out the operation amazingly, no doubt about it. But this is not because the fighters were bad. A simple example. The Syrian air defense did not change its position for a whole year and even after the outbreak of hostilities. During this time, Israel found out the location and composition of the group, knew where to beat and jam. This is sloppiness in my opinion, and not the technique is to blame. Another example is the opposite, a division in the same grouping, which during the raids actively changed positions, survived this war and announced the shooting down of three aircraft. Together with the air defense grouping, the radar stations that were supposed to control the actions of the fighters were suppressed. The planes flew blindly relying on their radars and virtually without general control.
                The Israeli Air Force, on the other hand, had good control from air command posts.

            Medvedka 19, the apogee of the stupidity and low discipline of the ATS pilots.
            But there is one interesting case.
            One notable incident occurred the day before the aerial battle began. When Israeli armored vehicles were just beginning to enter the Bekaa Valley, the lone Syrian Mi-24D was conducting reconnaissance at distant approaches. When flying around a given region, the pilots found a detached unit of the IDF - five tanks, an armored personnel carrier and an anti-aircraft gunnery unit clearly lost their way. The pilots decided to strike at the confused enemy. With a volley of NARs, it was possible to destroy the ZSU and damage the armored vehicles. The Israeli tankers understood that without the cover of the ZSU, they would become easy targets, so they called in the aviation.
            A light fighter "Kfir" quickly arrived to the rescue, patrolling the area nearby.
            The Israeli pilot immediately tried to attack the helicopter with the Sidewinder, but the missile went past, failing to capture a low-flying target. "Kfir" began to enter the target a second time when the Syrians fired two R-60MK air-to-air missiles at it.
            The Israeli pilot did not even attempt to dodge and both missiles hit the target. The Syrian pilots did not tempt fate and retired under the cover of their own air defense, leaving the enemy tankers to repair the damaged equipment.

    Official information:
    The most widespread 3rd generation fighter and the most widespread supersonic military aircraft in the history of aviation.
    Thanks to MASS production, it was distinguished by its low cost: the MiG-21MF, for example, was cheaper than the BMP-1.

    We have the T-54/55 Legend and the MiG-21 also Legend. Only not a single, not a second, not a single war won .... and the performance characteristics are so-so. MiG-21 in the Arab-Israeli in general "flew" with a devastating score. Everyone in a row. They bought (gave) for cheapness and because there was nothing else

        The Arabs are in trouble with this.

        The Arabs have been fighting all their lives, they don't even need to learn, although ours teach them. South Korea, for example, despite the 300 Chinese for the entire time, with Soviet weapons .. In the Arab conflicts there were our specialists and our tactics and fighters were also. The air defenses of Iraq and Libya were built according to the Soviet pattern, so what? And a lot of things were shot down in Syria?

      The Iraqis (that is, the same Arabs) in the battles against Iran proved to be quite good on the same MiG-21, although the Persians, meanwhile, had quite modern American technology. So maybe it's not just the Arabs, but the Jews as well? recourse

        performed pretty well

        There you can dig in both directions ... and the numbers will differ significantly. In reality, despite the fact that after the overthrow of the Shah, the United States stopped selling spare parts, and the state of the Iranian Air Force was not very good, in the Corner of Heaven there are figures in favor of Iran. The MiG-21 is not like the F-14. That's for sure. As well as the fact that the MiG-21 lost ALL the fights of the F-5, which the Vietnamese brought to us. And only the MiG-23 ML won something.
        You can read about this on the net.

          This is what I dug up on Wikipedia.
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraqi_Air_Force
          This is not in the Russian article.

          Mohommed Rayyan, nicknamed "Sky Falcon," who flew MiG-21MF in 1980–81, and claimed two confirmed kills against Iranian F-5Es in 1980. With the rank of Captain, Rayyan qualified on MiG-25P in late 1981 and went on to claim another eight kills, two of which are confirmed
          Captain Omar Goben was another successful fighter pilot. While flying a MiG-21 he scored air kills against two F-5E Tiger IIs and one F-4E Phantom II in 1980.

          I have a homemade computer, it's 11 years old, an AMD Phenom II processor. And nothing, the son played until he assembled his own, already modern, sophisticated, sharpened for games. I built a workstation for programming. By the way, even now, in his role, he pulls, and the son sometimes sits down to drive tanks when his computer is again in the process of upgrades. Of course, he says, the graphics are not the same, but the main thing is that tanks are driving and planes are flying.

    Medvedka 19, the apogee of the stupidity and low discipline of the ATS pilots.
    But there is one interesting case.
    One notable incident occurred the day before the aerial battle began. When Israeli armored vehicles were just beginning to enter the Bekaa Valley, the lone Syrian Mi-24D was conducting reconnaissance at distant approaches. When flying around a given region, the pilots found a detached unit of the IDF - five tanks, an armored personnel carrier and an anti-aircraft gunnery unit clearly lost their way. The pilots decided to strike at the confused enemy. With a volley of NARs, it was possible to destroy the ZSU and damage the armored vehicles. The Israeli tankers understood that without the cover of the ZSU, they would become easy targets, so they called in the aviation.
    A light fighter "Kfir" quickly arrived to the rescue, patrolling the area nearby.
    The Israeli pilot immediately tried to attack the helicopter with the Sidewinder, but the missile went past, failing to capture a low-flying target. "Kfir" began to enter the target a second time when the Syrians fired two R-60MK air-to-air missiles at it.
    The Israeli pilot did not even attempt to dodge and both missiles hit the target. The Syrian pilots did not tempt fate and retired under the cover of their own air defense, leaving the enemy tankers to repair the damaged equipment.

    Migi 21 LEGEND of the world mechanical engineering. He served and served honestly in the Yugoslav and Serbian army. QUALITY / PRICE BALANCE THERE WAS NO BEST AIRCRAFT IN THE WORLD !!!
    The fact that someone gives an example of how the American planes were better, you can only LAUGH WITH THUNDER !!!
    Like a lion's weapon, a MAN beats the battle, but no light weapon.
    And P.P. NYEGOS - THE BOOK OF THE GORSKI VENAZ 19th CENTURY
    "IN THE HANDS OF A WOLF MANDUSHICH, EVERY RIG WILL BE DEADLY"
    It all depends on: TACTICS OF APPLICATION AND HUMAN ODD, the rest is CONTINUOUS
    PROMOTION AND MARKETING !!!
    When Dumb NATO boasted that they shot and killed HEROIA MILENKO PAVLOVICH IN MIGA 29, 1999. They do not say what was hitting 2 NATO squadrons in the air and AWACS, and the radar did not work well on the Miga, he could only use melee missiles.
    MILENKO CONSCIOUSLY WENT INTO A LEGEND AND IS NOT IN A MIGA, BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT ALLOWED YOUNG AIRLINES TO DIE TO EMPTY, AND THAT WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO SHOW HOW FOR THE HOMELAND I SHOULD DIE.
    So each warrior will tell you that the WEAPON SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH AND THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK FLAWLESS, EVERYTHING ELSE IS UP TO THE MAN!
    It is normal that if you went into battle against 10 enemies and you alone may live and die, but this is NOT LEGAL !!!

    RUSSIAN WEAPONS ANYWHERE IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR TODAY, EVEN WELL WELL AND WITH IT WE CAN Fight AGAINST ANY ENEMY IN THIS WORLD SUCCESSFULLY !!!

    IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE TACTICS OF APPLICATION AND ON THE TRAINING OF FIGHTERS !!!

    And that would know 1 can DESTROY 10 enemies!

    In stores nowadays, you can't find imported goods in the daytime with fire. Except for the little things, Serbian and Bulgarian feta cheese. The rest is all the product of native aspens. Brands - yes, imported. That's just all this is produced at factories in the Russian Federation. You, dear, do not read anything on labels at all? Or is it whining for the sake of whining?

    E. ... In big shops "Bulgarian", Polish "I did not see, there are no Bulgarian wines at all, but there are Serbian wines of good quality. Georgian winemakers disappointed, from the word - at all. Mr. Saakashvili was right about the shit supplied to Russia)) )

    What does the word Broianitsa mean? You can read it on the bottle, but it doesn't affect the taste in any way))) As well as the place of the protected name, which is written on all bottles of wine.

    In general, for this money the wine is quite worthy, with meat and good cheese. laughing
