The MiG-21 was the Soviet Union's first Mach 2 aircraft and it achieved deadly results in its interceptor role during the Vietnam War and bringing it infamy in the West ever since. Captain Sim, the developer of choice for many flight sim fans, have combined their acclaimed flight sim design talents and their real life Eastern-bloc jet fighting skills to bring the last and most advanced two-seat trainer version of MiG-21, the UM "Mongol", to Flight Simulator 2002 and Combat Flight Simulator 2. They've even included an amazing interactive training manual that teaches you Cold War combat skills. Read more for some screens ...
