But he's got a whole lotta' bad karma sitting on his head ....
The delta wing, while excellent for a fast-climbing interceptor, meant any form of turning combat led to a rapid loss of speed. However, the light loading of the aircraft could mean that a climb rate of 235 m/s (46,250 ft/min) was possible with a combat-loaded MiG-21bis, not far short of the performance of the later F-16A. Given a skilled pilot and capable missiles, it could give a good account of itself against contemporary fighters. Its G-limits were increased from +7Gs in initial variants to +8.5Gs in the latest variants.

Well considering older aircraft have managed to take down the most advanced aircraft built in DACT I wouldn't frown on it just for its age. If they use it right it can create nightmares for an opposing force.
