  • Towards MiG 15 bis
    In November 1950, un fighter pilots encountered a Soviet built MiG-15 swept wing fighter the very first time. Immediately the name MiG became infamous under western culture since the North American F-86 Sabrejet and MiG-15's (NATO code known as Faggot) fought within the skies over Korea.

    Following WWII, Soviet Aviation wanted to maintain Western designed aircraft, so m any captured German, Italian and Japanese designs had been quickly tested and evaluated. The German Focke Wulf TA-183 swept wing fighter design by Kurt Tank, although never ever flown, had tremendous vow. Having its 35 degree swept wing, high T tail, a design rate of Mach 0.9, and a service ceiling over 10,000 meters, it will be a formidable fighter. The Soviets made some design changes and designated it the S-01 (S for swept wing). It had been built by the MiG design bureau and first flown in December 1947, utilizing an original British Nene Mark 1 turbojet engine. The design went into manufacturing since the MiG-15 in belated 1948. The MiG-15 bis had been a greater variation using the stronger 5,950lb static thrust VK-1 engine, for greater range and a greater roof.

    It went into mass manufacturing in 1950 armed with two NR-23 23mm cannons and another N37 37mm cannon, mounted on an inside platform lowered by hand crank for servicing and rearming. Many MiG-15 bis fighters are still flying today and that can be viewed doing at air programs worldwide.
