On this in 1965

SQUADRON LEADER AJJAMADA BOPAYYA DEVAYYA flying the Mystere aircraft was intercepted by a Pakistani supersonic F-104 Star-Fighter and DEVAYYA proved that it’s the flying skills & determination that matters more than the superior aircraft.

#KnowYourHeroes
The paki pilot of F-104 first fired an air-to-air Sidewinder missile, which Squadron Leader Devayya successfully evaded and the missile hit the ground.

#1965War
However, by virtue of its faster acceleration, the F-104 rapidly closed in on the Mystere and fired a burst of its 20 mm multibarrel cannon and succedded in damaging Squadron Leader Devayya's Mystere.
