1/48 EDUARD MiG-21bis Croatian Air Force, 22nd Squadron (1995)

June 12, 2022 · in Aviation · · 4 · 0.9K

After two modernized MiGs from 191st Squadron ( I tried to go back to the past. 22nd Squadron of Air Force was formed on November 6th 1991 as predecessor of newly formed Croatian Air Force. Together with 1st Fighter Squadron, 22nd Squadron will conduct numerous flights supporting military operations during Croatian War for independence. Although this model is firing R-60 A-A missile, Croatian MiG's were never actually involved in air to air combat and were mainly used for ground support role.

By the end of 2019, 22nd Squadron was reorganized and became 191st Squadron. After several delays, MiGs from 191st Squadron will soon finally be replaced with ordered Dassault Rafales.
