    Those with side numbers 055, 073 and 062 are MiG-21(first two are trainers).

    Nope! These are MIG-21's: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MIG-21&t=b...df9cfd91_b.jpg

    These are MIG-23's: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MIG-23&t=b...285%252529.jpg

    They're a swing-wing fighter like my F-111D.

    The one on third photo is MiG-23, those above are 21.

    Trainers seems to be late production MiG-21UM(i think i see antenna mast there), the other one is MiG-21bis(i think it is of 75B variety), so they can be of german, hungarian, soviet or bulgarian origin.

    Guess you're right, they just don't usually have a radome grafted over the engine intake. They'll never fly like that. MIG-23's have largish boxy intakes on the side of aircraft just aft of the cockpit, as you can see in that third photo.

    There is chicom version of MiG-21 with a side air intakes(but much smaller than those on Mig-23).

    Wonder why they added the nose piece to those Mig-21s? For theatrical effect? That does tend to cover up the air intake, and I would expect dire consequences to engine performance...LOL!

    yeah, a Mig-21 is quite easy to identify. So a cheap nose cone let's them pretend they are US planes for a passing camera shot.
