MiG-21 Units of the Vietnam War by Istvan Toperczer

Book Description

Having honed their piloting skills on the subsonic MiG-17 and transonic MiG-19, the Vietnamese Peoples' Air Force (VPAF) received their first examples of the legendary MiG-21 supersonic fighter in 1966. Soon thrown into combat over North Vietnam, the guided-missile equipped MiG-21 proved a deadly opponent for the USAF, Navy and Marine Corps crews striking at targets deep into communist territory. Most of the VPAF's 12+ aces scored their bulk of their kills in the MiG-21, which was then the best fighter produced by Russia's premier fast jet manufacturer, Mikoyan Gurevich. Well over 200 MiG-21s were supplied to the VPAF, and the numerous models, and the schemes they wore, are chronicled in great detail in this unique volume.

Mig-17/19 Aces of the Vietnam War by Istvan Toperczer Mig-17/19 Aces of the Vietnam War, Paperback (October 2016)

The Vietnam People's Air Force at the beginning of the Vietnam War were equipped with slow, old Korean War generation fighters - a combination of MiG-17s and MiG-19s - types that should have offered little opposition to the fighter-bombers such as the F-4 Phantom II, and more. This is an analysis of the exploits of Vietnamese pilots.

MiG-17 and MiG-19 Units of the Vietnam War by Istvan Toperczer MiG-17 and MiG-19 Units of the Vietnam War, Paperback (September 2001)

The Vietnamese Peoples' Air Force (VPAF) grew from an ill-organized rabble to a highly effective fighing force that held its own over the skies of North Vietnam. This title charts the exploits of the VPAF in detail.
