I'm confused. The MiG pages states: "... and MiG-23 was manufactured after MiG-29." On the other hand the MiG-29 Fulcrum pages states: "The Mikoyan-Gurevich? MiG-29 is a jet fighter plane designed in 1972 as a replacement for the MiG-21? and MiG-23? in the fighter role." How can the MiG-29 replace the MiG-23 if the latter was not manufactured at the time? --Css
- MiG-23 was manufactrured AFTER MiG-29. THe MiG-29 page gave the wrong info. User:Kt2
- Removed "famous" for Mikoyan and Gurevich. Famous had been added just as a counter for infamous.
- Could not fit in MiG-7 after MiG-5, as the text above it says "the 3 aircraft which saw ..." Was MiG-7 used in WW-II ?
- I'm not sure if MiG-8 was a non-fighter.
- Removed MiG-11. I could not find references to MiG-11 anywhere on the net (except in wikipedia)
- Added year of start of service for each aircraft.
- Restored concept of odd-numbering from User:Ktsquare's original version of the article. I don't know why it was removed thereafter.

Well, I did not know that the format of the article should express something meaningfull. To me it just looked like a smashed up layout. Now, after reading your reverting comment I understand what was intended by the layout. Some thoughts on this:
- Wouldn't it be better to mention the use of those planes in WWII in the text? Otherwise I see no reason why not to sandwich all the other wars that happened since this into this list: Korean War, Vietnam War, Six days War and so on. This quickly results in one problem: There are planes that where used in different wars and some planes where never used in any war. Consequence: It's may not such an good idea to mix a type list with with a list for war use.
- You're right about separating the sandwich of war names and MiG names. Each plane should be sorted chronologically and have its own sentence detailing its importance. Jay 08:56, 5 Dec 2003 (UTC)
- WWII started in 1939 and ended in 1945. What do you think when MiG-1 was used if not in WWII? What about the MiG-9? It was ready in 1947 by this time WWII was two years over. On the other hand it could not have been created earlier because it made use of a modified BMW 003 engine which the Sovyets captured from Germany.
- So obviously the information in the article is wrong about Mig-9. Jay 08:56, 5 Dec 2003 (UTC)
- according to http://www.ctrl-c.liu.se/misc/ram/mig-7.html the MiG-7 was only a prototype of which only a single exemplar existed. So it hardly was actually used.
- So that clears up the question of whether it was used in the war. Jay 08:56, 5 Dec 2003 (UTC)
- by the way you deleted the MiG-7 link by reverting my changes
