MiG 21 or Tik 20?
Four crashes within one year makes me wonder if MiG 21 should be renamed to Tik 20. Yeah, it was state-of-the-art in the 1971 war. Yeah, they were used in the Kargil war. But it is time for IAF to consider alternatives and expedite the phase out of these MiG 21s. They are proving consistently lethal, whether to enemies or not , to our own men.
