Remaining four squadrons of MiG-21 out of service by 2025; Modernization of Indian Air Force

New Delhi : Sources understand that the remaining four fighter squadrons of MiG-21s in the Indian Air Force will be decommissioned in the next three years (by 2025).

One of these squadrons will be decommissioned in September. Similarly, these sources also say that the Indian Air Force has planned to decommission three squadrons of MiG-29 fighter jets in the next five years.

An Air Force MiG-21 aircraft crashed in Barmer, Rajasthan last night. This incident has nothing to do with the above decision, but the decision to decommission these MiG aircraft manufactured in Soviet Russia is part of the drive to modernize the Indian Air Force, these sources also explained. In the MiG crash at Barmer, Wing Commander M. Two pilots, Rana and Flight Lieutenant Univeesh Bal, have been killed. A squadron typically consists of 17 to 20 fighter aircraft.
