Globalization: Israeli Fantoms F-4 against North Korean MiG - 21

Apparently globalization started earlier than you might think.

I knew for a long time already that Algeria, Iraq and Libya took part in the Yom Kippur War, of course against Israel. But it's the first I heard about this episode: Norks vs IAF pilots.

I wouldn't spoil the happy end, let's just just say that it was kinda extraordinary.

Troops from Cuba also fought for Egypt in 1973. I understand that it took the IDF a few hours to utterly destroy them.

Thanks, Katie, I shall look it up definitely. Cubans were sticking their heads into a lot of places at the time. Got their heads knocked considerably too.
