As of this morning, Pakistan is reporting that it has shot down Indian fighter jets operating over Pakistan. It looks like the specific types shot down were Mig-21s. This is surprising to me, given that the airfrx is over 50 years old. Unlike, say, the USAF and the B-52, it seems like India has plenty of other planes that can fulfill the same role as the Mig 21 - it has Mirage 2000s, Su-30s, Mig-29s, and more. So why was it using Mig 21s for active combat operations?

今天早上,巴基斯坦報道稱擊落了在巴基斯坦上空飛行的印度戰機??雌饋肀粨袈涞氖敲赘?21。這讓我很驚訝,因為這種飛機的機齡已經超過50年了。雖然不如美國空軍和B-52,印度似乎有很多其他飛機可以發揮與米格21同樣的作用——它有幻影2000、蘇-30、米格29等等。那么為什么要用米格21來執行主動作戰任務呢?
