1973: The Yom Kippur War


On October 6th, 1973, Syria and Egypt staged a surprise attack on Israel on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. The Israeli military were caught off guard and unprepared, and took about three days to fully mobilize. The Yom Kippur War accommodated indirect confrontation between the US and the Soviet Union. When Israel had turned the tide of war, the USSR threatened military intervention. The United States, wary of nuclear war, secured a ceasefire on October 25th.

Syrian Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-21MF (2300) Fighter - 5th Squadron, Tiyas AFB, 1973 - 1982 Syrian Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-21MF (2300) Fighter - 5th Squadron, Tiyas AFB, 1973 - 1982 (1:72 Scale)

The MiG-21 saw frequent action in the Vietnam War and was one of the most advanced aircraft at the time. However, many North Vietnamese aces preferred flying the MiG-17, due to the high wing loading on the MiG-21's. With high wing loading, the MiG-21 was not as agile or manueverable as the MiG-17.
