MiG-21 Lancer

Notes: This is the most modern development of the MiG-21. It was produced as an upgrade kit for Romania by the Israelis in the early 1990s, and the first Lancer went into squadron service in Romania in 1994. It is essentially a MiG-21 with upgraded electronics, controls, navigation systems, and attack systems, as well as more powerful autocannons.

Twilight 2000 Notes: Though the official data from Israel said that the upgrades take six months to perform, the Romanians were performing the upgrade in as little as two weeks before the work was stopped by Russian airstrikes in 1998.
