Photos of SyAAF MiG-21s - Updated

Some other photos of SyAAF MiG-21's I could collect from the web, updating the first post of this aircraft I posted in Dec. last year.
Here above, another photo of the MiG-21PFM that in display on a roundabout in Aleppo not very far from the entrance of the Artillery School.

SyAAF MiG-21FL at the first entrance of Kweres AFB (AKA Rasm Al Abboud AFB), photographed during the Syrian uprising. Note the local made surface-to-surface missile -in the background- fired by rebels towards the air field.

More recent photo of the same MiG-21FL.

Very nice and rare shot of a SyAAF MiG-21MF during the war of 1973. It is fitted with four AA-2 Atol's.

MiG-21R at the Panorama of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war. It is fitted with air-to-air missile plus unguided rocket pod under each wing. Unfortunately, no serial is visible on this airframe. 

Special thanks to 'PFC Joker' for his great and very rare addition. I quote from his text "This MiG-21UM captured at Dabaa AB - and now supposedly recaptured by the Syrian Army - has a clearly visible serial № 516871061 on its fin. Also of interest is the Soviet Air Force red star with a Syrian flag crudely painted over it - it seems that the aircraft was taken out of service in Soviet Union and sent to Syria (probably as a part of emergency weapon deliveries just after the 1973 year Arab-Israeli war) "
