For Wings over Israel.

This campaign with 34 missions for the EAF No.26 Sqn cover the periode from Oct 7, 1973 to Oct 24, 1973.

EAF No.26 "Black Ravens" Squadron

No.26 Squadron was established in the autumn 1967.
The Squadron was the first, following the Israelian example, to set aerial ambushes with two MiGs acting as baith and two or four others as shooters.
First sucess coming in Oct 23, 1968 in the area Ismailiya-Suez Canal with two Mirages downed, one finded in May 1975 by the Egyptian Navy with the death pilot still in the cockpit.
As usual, IDF/AF denied this losses.
Based at Inchas AB during the War of Attrition, No.26 Squadron was the unit with the highest number of combat engagements in 1969-1970 and earned the reputation as the "best dogfighters" in the entire air arm.
Pilots of the squadron introduce the practice of applying kill markings on their MiGs, and by 1973, at least two of the MiGs carried the unit insignia, a black raven with a white "26".      
The "Top Gun" of the unit was Reda el-Iraqi with three kills in the War of Attrition(all Mirages). The No.26 Squadron downed also IDF/AF ace Capt Giora Romm(5 victories)and became POW.
By the Ramadan War, despite the availability of new variants like MiG-21MF or MiG-1PFM, the No.26 Squadron remained with the old MiG-21F-13. The aircraft was lighter and thus more manoeuvrable in comparison with recent variants. The single 30mm cannon with 60 rounds packed a more powerful punch than the 23mm GSh-23 installed in the MiG-21MF. Also, the F-13 was a dedicated interceptor and not a dual role like the MiG-21MF.
No.25 Squadron follow the example of No.26 Squadron and give his MiG-21PFS to come back with the MiG-21F-13. Both Squadrons, forming the Air Brigade 102, had 30 MiG-21F-13 by the Ramadan War.      
The UARAF/EAF had taked in charge 90 MiG-21F-13(48 of the first batch delivered from Nov 1961 to 1963, 12 ex QJJ in Jun 1967 and 30 purchased with Aero-Vodochody in Czechoslovakia delivered in 1969). Last F-13s arriving by Dec 4, 1969. All this 30 jets were assigned to the Air Brigade 102.
The SyAAF received during the Ramadan War, 11 MiG-21F-13 from Czechoslovaquia and 12 from Poland. The DDR deliver in the same periode 12 MiG-21M.
