The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 was a supersonic jetfighter that first saw service in the Soviet Air Force in 1959. It was surprisingly able to achieve a Mach 2 airspeed (at 43,000 ft) with its single afterburner equipped Tumansky R-25-300 turbojet and downed a significant number of American planes during the Vietnam war. In fact, it was the MiG-21 (and its MiG-17 little brother) that led the US Navy to develop the TopGun Navy Fighter Weapons School to teach aerial dog fighting in the jet age. Today’s feature isn’t a complete MiG-21, but only the cockpit…in case you want to mount it on top of a VW Beetle chassis and drive around town.
