Indian MiG 21 vs pakistani F-16. Which one is better

Nowadays, it is said that MiG 21 fighter jets are a vintage jets. Is it true?

many peoples claimed that F-16 is far better than Mig 21. Lets have a look.

On 28 February, the Indian Air Force claimed that a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet was shot down by an Indian MiG -21 Bison. The announcement was historic for several reasons. Firstly, it was the first close aerial combat between Indian and Pakistani fighter planes since 1971. Secondly, this was the first time an F-16 was shot down by the Russian MiG-21.

It is true that there a huge technological gap between these two aircraft. But this Indian MiG 21 Bison is an upgradef version.

According to the Air Marshals, who had served as the air officer commanding-in-chief (C-in-C) of the IAF’s training command, to pitch these aircraft against each other on paper.

Result: MiG 21 Bishop is not a vintage jet. In a dogfight, both jets are equally able to shot othets. F16 have a benefit because its 4th generation jet but 3.5th generation MiG 21 Bison is also a good fighter jet.

IAF is also using MiG 29, MiG 29 (upgraded) model is 4th generation fighter jet.
