Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

Yawn! Hurting John Doe wanting to do a equal-equal with Ivan for all their material on how a old mig-21 took down a f-16. Typical Indian mentality seeking validation from gora on the kill and the typical Paki mindset of wanting to eke out H&D where it doesnt exist. It doesnt matter what the US G...
