MiG-21 BIS

Auto Credit Based on greasytortle's MiG-21 BIS (Gear Fix WIP)

After working nearly twenty four hours non-stop, I bring you the MiG-21 BIS! I've worked hard to put as much detail as possible into this aircraft. The plane might be a bit laggy for some mobile players as it has over 400 parts. The armament includes a twin barreled Gsh-23L Cannon, two UB-16 rocket pods (32 total rockets), four close range R73 air-to-air missiles, and Chaff/Flare pods (64 total countermeasures). I managed to get the aircraft near 1:1 scale and the thrust performance matches nearly exactly with empty cruise speed around 550mph and empty supersonic speed exceeding 1300mph. The aircraft features a three position nose cone for sustained supersonic flight (Controlled by throttle and the afterburner.) The fuel tank as well as weapon pylons can be released if needed.

Controls

Throttle: Extend Nose Cone to 2nd Position
AG1: Engage Afterburner Extend Nose Cone to 3rd Position
AG3: Release Fuel Tank
AG4: Release Rocket Pods
AG5: Release Missile Pylons
AG6: Deploy Parachute
AG7: Anti-Collision Lights
AG8: Lock Nose Wheel Turning
VTOL: Flaps


Landing with airbrakes extended and the parachute deployed

Twin Barrel Gsh-31 Cannon in use against a convoy

Two UB-16 Rocket Pods provide more than enough punch for this convoy

Detaching the pylon stores will lower drag thus increasing speed

The two Chaff/Flare pods on the underside provide 64 uses

I used these as reference pictures

I really enjoyed building this aircraft. I've gained so much more of an appreciation for the MiG-21 and its designers. It's things like the complex folding landing gear and intake shock cone that really suprise me as the plane originates from the late 1950s.

If there's any planes you'd like to see me replicate I'm open for suggestions! I'm still thinking about building a Saab Viggen.

    @Jerba Oh that makes sense. I was confused because "MiG-21 BIAS" came up with results on google. I guess there's the Bucharest International Air Show (BIAS) where they've had the MiG-21 fly before.

    @Jerba I'm not too familiar with Russian aircraft but from what I can tell, the BIS at the end stands for Two or Second as it's a second generation of the MiG-21. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    You forgot the A in BIS. It should be BIAS.

    @AluminumOvercast The F-15 is on my list still. I tried making one over a year ago and have since learned a lot more on building better planes.
