Which is better? The Northrop F-5E Tiger II or the Mikoyan i Gurevich MiG-21?
The usual story is that they never met in combat and thus the ultimate question about their mutual superiority remains unanswered. But actually, they did clash — and not only once. Indeed, their first battles proved decisive in the outcome of a long-forgotten conflict over the Horn of Africa.
