The MiG-21 served as the bulk of the Iraqi Air Force, usually more valuable in terms of quantity than quality.

It was inferior to Iranian jets like the F-4D/E Phantom and F-5E Tiger, not to mention the exceptionally modern F-14 Tomcat. The aircraft was obsolete at the time of the 1980s conflict and its crews, characteristic of Soviet designs, were less well trained and had fewer hours of flight training.

However, the aircraft was very easy to maintain, operate, and reliable, and by sheer numbers it played a significant role in the conflict.

During the Iran-Iraq War, Iranian F-14A Tomcats shot down 23 Iraqi MiG-21s, confirmed by Iranian, Western and Iraqi sources, and F-4s shot down another 29 MiG-21s. However, from 1980 to 1988, Iraqi MiG-21s shot down 43 Iranian fighter jets, including one F-14, against 49 MiG-21 losses in the same period.

El MiG-21 fue extensamente usado en los conflictos del Medio Oriente de los años 1960, 1970 y 1980 por las fuerzas aéreas de Egipto, Siria y Irak. El primer combate entre cazas MiG-21 y Mirage III ocurrió el 14 de noviembre de 1964. El 14 de julio de 1966 la Fuerza Aérea de Israel reclama el derribo del primer MiG-21 en combate aéreo.

Los israelíes también reclaman el derribo de 6 MiG-21 el 7 de abril de 1967. Durante el transcurso de estas guerras, los bandos contendientes favorecen a sus fuerzas aéreas en la proporción de derribos.

El MiG-21 también se enfrentó inicialmente a los cazas F-4 Phantom II y a los A-4 Skyhawks, pero para los años 80 fue superado por los nuevos y modernos F-15 Eagle y F-16 Falcon que fueron adquiridos por la Fuerza Aérea de Israel en la segunda mitad de los años 70.

    Great plane, the only thing missing is a pitch/yaw rate funktion that limits the swaying of the aircraft making it easyer to controll. An addition this ppane is way to underrated.
