MiG-21Y

24.5k Mustang51  1.3 years ago

Okay okay this is my last MiG-21 build for a while now.

The MiG-21Y is my own fictional version of the MiG-21 and I used the Analog and E8 versions as inspiration.

The MiG-21Y was initially designed in the late 60s and early 70s as a way to upgrade the performance of the MiG-21. It was decided that the MiG-23 would be more suitable for the Soviet Union’s new fighter but a limited number of MiG-21Ys were produced to have a higher performance fighter until the MiG-23 was ready. This aircraft was produced until 1976, and used until the 1990s, mostly by former members of the USSR. The last of the 21Ys retired in 1999 from the Polish Air Force.

AG1 is for the drag chute
AG7 for afterburner
AG8 to activate missiles

VTOL operates the rear elevators/flaps. On an aircraft with such a layout, these are sometimes used during takeoff and landing and form a similar function to flaps. However, they can also help with making tighter manoeuvres as well.

    @CookieCrumz I’m glad you think so since it’s a fictional build but I tried to make it look like something plausible

    @Lambojuli thanks for the upvote! The way you can do that is by reducing the velocity of the bullets being fired from the gun. What I didn’t do when I posted this but I would do now is make sure the case dropper fires bullets at the same rate as the cannons. You can just take this one if you’d like :)
