it's far reliable for seeing how many years it served and still could
J7 is nothing but Mig-21.
china just changed its name.
Changing doesn't alter the fact that J7 is Mig21
Mig 21 is a flying coffin for indian pilots and j 7 for Chinese
yeah but India has since retired it.
India MIG21 not in service now?
most have been phased out. More will be as we induct more tejas mk2
hindustan times reported last dec that the indian airforce will phase out the mig-21 in the next 3 to 4 years
but few month before one mig 21 crashed in india
yes. Last crash is 2021 December 25 .. On the Christmas Day
It's because it's made in China
The ones made by soviet union is also falling from t sky in india.
Just to remind india
In 2021 alone, 5 india MiG-21aircrafts crashed
The last indian military aircraft crash was on january 2022 in bihar's gaya
Dont forget the legendary helicopter crashed that shock the world
What's so strange about such news, Crux ?
Even a F16 american jet fighter crashed few days ago.
So is it also a flying coffin as well ?
Why aren't there any news saying that ?
J7 is chinese copy of MiG 21 which india also using in large numbers... India has numerous numbers of jet accidents per year compared to other countries..
India has only 60, China has 300
They're only used as trainers. They aren't front line aircraft
india still using mig 21 as frontline jets and in the bkot strike in 2019, indians used Mig 21 to fight pakistani jets.. One indian Mig 21 was shot down in POK kashmir and indian pilot is taken as prisoner...rest is history...it was reported tea was good in pakistan..
Thats how China quality works.
Chinese really good to copy
China should gracefully retire these old & vintage planes.
In comparison to india china has very limited accidents.
Made In China
big talk coming from India. Doesn't the IAF crash CONSTANTLY?
