Now you are talking BS.. and showing more ignorance about the subject.. 67 war there was no air fights.. Comparing the Mig 17 and Mig 21 to the F-4 in 73 and saying a small difference is utter ignorance as the F-4 was a full generation ahead of anything Egypt had.. The Arabs were fighting the US behind tiny Usrael.. if you didn't know that you shouls stop talking about this subject..
Anyway the end justify the means and you can't do nothing about it with your jealousy here.. Egypt got back its Sinai by force of arms..air, land and sea..
Either you are forgetting your own post, that being 'FLYING Arab ACES (1967 - 1973)' or you are contradicting yourself. What's the point of putting 67-73 in the title when as per your own words they weren't any dogfights during 67 war?
And the fact that there weren't any dogfights during the 67 war goes to show how terrible the EAF performed. Where were the Caps? The defences, the counter attack? None of it happened. Because Egypt was not prepared mentally to fight them. Had they been prepared they would've contested the air space since day 1 like the PAF had done in all its wars.
And if you gonna quote me, do it correctly.
I said there was a smaller tech disparity between the 2 air forces. I didn't say it was small. I said it was smaller.
Also the mig 21 was a good counter to the f4. It featured a2a missiles, supersonic capability, delta winged design etc. It should've been a match for those iaf mirage III and f4e. But nope.
Mig 17 understandable.
Oh and they were fighting the us? Dude. They had US support. Regardless of it, you still should've been able to outgun them easily with the coalition you formed.
But you chimped out. Scared of Mr USA gonna invade. Dude. How did you think the Muslims felt when fighting the qurraish and their allies. They were outnumbered, out gunned. But the Muslims still won.
Also what am I jealous of regarding Egypt? I have nothing to be jealous of because there is nothing there to be jealous of.
