It would have been unthinkable as recently as seven years ago that a Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 (NATO code-name "Fishbed") - the most widely-used fighter the Soviet Union ever produced - should be fitted with state-of-the-art avionics and weaponry from Israel. Yet this has become the Romanian air force's way of maintaining a credible, affordable, fighter force into the 21st century, and it is Romanian manufacturer Aerostar's way of striking up industrial links which could prove the key to its own future. </p> <p>Aerostar was established in 1953 as the URA - a repair and overhaul base for Romanian air force Yakovlev Yak-18s and Yak-23s, and later also for the MiG-15 and MiG-17. Other types still maintained by the company include the Ilyushin Il-28 and its Chinese-built equivalent, the Harbin H-5, and the Czech-built Aehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Fishbed-facelift-542/
