Two-seat trainer version of the third generation MiG-21 (SM, M, MF, R).

The MiG-21UM was manufactured in the years 1971–1985. More than 1,000 aircraft were built. It differed from the previous two-seat MiG-21, the MiG-21US in upgraded equipment. The KAP-2 autopilot was replaced by three-axis AP-155 autopilot, and the ASP-PFD gunsight was also added.

Poland purchased 54 aircraft, delivered 1971–1981, operated until 2003.

The example construction number 516999349 was delivered to Polish military aviation in 1981. It served with No. 3 Tactical Aviation Squadron. In 2001 it received 'albino tiger' colour pattern. The aircraft was on static display at the International Radom Air Show in 2003.
