    Just out of interest if you were in charge of a heavily sanctioned country unable to purchase any military equipment from foreign countries but did have the ability to produce certain types of aircraft although of an older design with limited upgrades AND you only had enough investment to start two types of aircraft which TWO of the following would you choose.


    Mig-21BIS, 93.
    Su-22M4
    Mig-23 MLD, BN, mig-27
    Mig-25P, RB

    MiG-25 is very specialized, complex and expensive to operate. Better to have bigger numbers of MiG-21 and Su-22 in my opinion, a fighter and an attacker.

    Mig 21 93 with r-77 and an aesa radar in big numbers and a lot of airbases because they have very limited range.

    Su-22M4 for ground attack but also because it can carry kh-31 for SEAD or anti ship attack.

    My choice would be the same although the mig-21 and mig-23/27 is also a good choice as mig-23 would give another interceptor and ground attack in form of mig-27. For me it's quite a tough choice
