Notes:

Note 1: the loss of two F-4E Phantoms on 8 June 1970 was credited to two EAF MiG-21 pilots by inofficial Israeli sources; according to official Israeli records not a single F-4E Phantom II was lost in the month of June 1970. Also, no pilots with given names are known within the Egyptian Air Force.

Note 2: Egyptian plane exploded in front of the Mirage IIICJ, forcing the Israeli pilot to land in Refidim.

The first air-to-air victory by an Egyptian pilot was scored when a REAF Spitfire LF.9 intercepted a RAF Dakota transport, in May 1948. The Spitfire LF.9 was the mainstay of the RAF at the time, but the type suffered extensive losses during the war - especially on the hand of highly experienced mercenaries flying for Israel at the time. This example, serialled "661" was even captured intact at el-Arish AB, when this was taken by the Israelis, in early 1949. (all artworks by Tom Cooper)
From mid-1960s until well into the 1980s MiG-21 was the mainstay of the Egyptian Air Force. The type was foremost an interceptor but also used for air-to-ground missions. Eventually, over 350 were purchased from the USSR, but a considerable number remained impounded when relations between Cairo and Moscow were suddenly broken, in 1974. In the subsequent years the Egyptians invested heavily to revitalise their surviving MiG-21s with help of Western companies, and a number of MiG-21MFs remain operational with the EAF until today. With MiG-21 the Egyptian pilots scored also most of their air-to-air victories.
