The Mig-21 was originally built by the Mikoyan and Gurevich Design Bureau in the
Soviet Union with a NATO nickname Fishbed. No other jet has had as many planes
produced as the Mig-21. Depending on the reference source 8,000 - 13,000 planes of
without license. A small, fast, agile, dependable and most importantly simple making it
easy to turn out great numbers of the plane.

In 1991 a War of Independence between Croatia and Yugoslavia began and lasted until
November 1995 when Croatia won. Croatia gained its three MiG-21BIS’s in February
1992 and May 1993 when Croatian born pilots defected from the Yugoslav Air Force.
The aircraft were painted with the Croatian emblem and re-serialed 101, 102 and 103.
102 was flown by Colonel Ivan Selak. Later 102 was named “OSVETNIK DUBROVNIKA
– AVENGER OF DUBROVNIK” with the 1st FS emblem on the port-side nose. The only
survivor 102 is on display at the 91st Air Base Museum, Zagreb-Pleso.
