MiG-21 is a truly legendary aircraft. It was the Soviet Union's
first Mach 2 aircraft, supremely accurate in the Vietnam War and
established itself as a key element in most air forces around the
world. Thanks to Captain Sim we now have what has to be an almost
perfect representation of the MiG-21 for either FS2002 or CFS 2.
the general quality of the aircraft models in the Just Flight expansions
is always of a high standard, the quality on show in MiG -21 Interceptor
is jaw-droppingly impressive. Every element from the liveries to
the virtual cockpit looks fantastic and rather unusually all the
extra detail doesn't whack the framerate in
the same way that other detailed expansions do. It's rather obvious
that Captain Sim have highly optimised the aircraft models so as
not to send the system requirements soaring. A lot of care has been
taken with attention to detail and all flaps and rudders animate
very nicely. You can even enable the gun sight and it works wonderfully
Aircraft & Liveries

The installation couldn't be simpler. From the autorun menu you
have a choice of selecting whether to install the expansion pack
into either Flight Simulator 2002 or Combat Flight Simulator 2.
The usual, unsubtitled Just Flight promotional clip runs before
installation takes place but you can press the Esc key to quit this
and get on with the installation.
expansion has a manual in html format and an online tutorial. Thankfully
the manual that's included in the pack is very helpful and not only
every aspect of the cockpit panel but also includes some rather
helpful hints and tips to help you out.
Interceptor is an absolutely outstanding expansion pack and has
to be one of the best ever made for either FS2002 or CFS 2. If you
have CFS 2 you're going to get more out of the expansion pack as
there are 20 missions for you to take part in. These missions range
from tutorials to recon missions and finally to refinery and airfield
strikes. We don't have a copy of CFS 2 so we can't comment on the
quality of the missions but even without them this is still a highly
impressive expansion pack. Perhaps the best news of all is that
it is almost certain that full compatibility with the upcoming Flight
Simulator 2004 has been achieved.
Game Rating: 9.0/10
looks beautiful and flys like a dream. This is absolutely top notch
work from Captain Sim and Just Flight. You'll need CFS 2 to get
the most out of the pack though.
No problems for deaf gamers.
