Armaments wise it is a downgrade from the MiG-21bis. For the A-A role you get (if you opt for maximum missile load on the MiG-21bis) 4 less missiles! That's the amount of missiles an M-2000c carry's. Not to mention no R-3R's so no all aspect capability.
The A-G armament is basically the same so... Your right there!
Add that sexy shark like shape and dark blue color...... And an aberration of fuel consumption
