Description

When the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 first appeared in combat against the Western powers during the Korean War, it caused consternation amongst its opposition. Its performance far outstripped any jet fighter aircraft produced by the West at the time and its duels with the US F86 Sabre have entered into aviation legend.

The success of the MiG-15 was such that it went on to become the most widely produced jet fighter aircraft in history, and although figures vary it is believed over 12,000 were built plus another 6,000 under licence. The prototype of the distinctive fighter, built by the Mikoyan design bureau, with its high-swept wings and tailplane and nose intake, first flew in 1947, and was first deployed in the Korean War at the start of the 1950s. Although it suffered from handling problems when involved in dogfights with F86, and a number were shot down, it had been built primarily with the role of interceptors in mind and was highly effective against the US heavy bombers.

 

The MiG-15 was produced in a number of variants, both in single-seat and two-seat versions and remained in service as a trainer aircraft for Warsaw Pact countries into the 1970s. Its improved successors, the MiG-17 and MiG-19, became the standard Soviet jet fighters of the early Cold War, including the Vietnam War. The MiG-15 was also produced in Czechoslovakia, Poland and China and aircraft were exported throughout the world. Its rugged build has ensured that a number survives in flying condition today.

This book is a worthy addition to the acclaimed Famous Russian Aircraft series, with a comprehensive history of the aircraft’s development, design history and use worldwide. The text is supported by almost 1000 photographs and line drawings as well as over 100 detailed colour profiles.
