The IAF received six MiG 21 F-13s with 12 An 12s and 10 Mi-4s and three sqns of the SAM III in 1960-1963 as the first of a large number of Soviet and Russian equipment to follow. This is the famous Revell kit. I had the honour of having the base signed by Hero of the Soviet union Mikhael Mikoyan, nephew of the great Artem Mikoyan. He started his flying over Stalingrad on Yak 3s in 1943 and ended as a test pilot with RAC MiG. He was instrumental in training Indian pilots on the F-13 in 1962 because he was fluent in English. like all Armenians, his name ended in ..yan.
