Super -Tiger vs Mig 21 what if ?

The mig 21 is the most widely used supersonic fighter capable of mach 2.0 . More than 11800 were built without counting the F-7 built in China.
We will start by comparring the main characteristics - Speed mach 2.05 at low level mach 1.1 Climb over 30000 fpm. Range 1000 on internal fuel. Agil - both the same.
The main conclusion is that the Pilot level will won the day.

Super Tiger vs Mirage 3c

The two were actually competed each other as a proposal for NATO in the late 50's but due to a heavy bribing the F-104 was choosed instead of them-something that cost dearly to the German airforce with more than 100 pilots killed in accidents with the type.
Aby how the Super-tiger and Mirage were both excellent fighters but the Mirage become a reality while the Super-tiger only had two prototypes. The Mirage 3c was a huge success in the hands of the Israelien Pilots bringing down 400 arab planes and was distributed in many countries and airforces.
When we are making a close look the two had simillar performance in terms of speed climb and range and weapon carry posibilities.
The two models are in 1:48 scale and the Super is from Sthalhart while the Mirage is fron IAF magazine.

Super -Tiger vs F-8 Crusader what if ?

Dear All - It is intresting to compare between the two.From a pure performance aspect the Super has the performance edge - mach 2.05 vs 1.75 mach , Climb 30K + feet per min vs 21K feet per min. But the Crusader was choosen by the NAVY and the Super tiger was a private venture of Grumman. Therefore despite some early issues the Crusader started to get into service and more versions came into NAVY and MARINES squadrons.
What if the Navy was getting Super tigers instead of F-8 Crusader no one can predict
but according to what is known it wouldn't
fare any worse then the Crusader.
Regarding the F-104 Starfighter the Grumman Super tiger could do this
work with a much lower accident rate and a more suitable plane

Super -Tiger vs Mig 23 Floger what if ?

Since a battle never happened befween the two we can only prdict what could have happened if ?
The mig 23 was the first swing wing russian to enter service along with the su- 17 and 22. The control on the wing had 3 fixed positions like in the images attached
here . The swing wing didn't gave the type
advantage in oerfornance compared to the mig 21and the sad trouth is that in almost all the countries it was phased out of service while the 21still remain.
Compared to the Super- tiger it has more speed mach 2.3 vs 2.05 !
All the rest is even and if the Super - tiger will carry advanced sidewinder he can win
the dog fight with the mig -23 very easyly.
The mig-23 is from the IAF magazine aftera Syrian pilot defected to Israel in 1992.
The mig was tested by Israelian pilots who found the engine to be very powerful !
Today the mig -23 is in the Israeli air force museum in Hazerim .
