The MiG-21 was originally built by the Mikoyan and Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union with a NATO nickname Fishbed. No other jet has had as many planes produced as the Mig-21.

When the Soviet Union controlled East Germany they had three regiments of MiG-21SMTs located in country. These units were 33 IAP Wittstock, 296 IAP Altenburg and 733 IAP Damgarten.
