Developed from the successful MiG-15 jet, the MiG-17 constituted a marked improvement in transonic handling over the previous model. Both the clear weather interceptors (the MiG-17 and 17F) and the all-weather fighters (the MiG-17PF and 17PFU) were evolved in the USSR, and a number of aircraft were licence-built in Poland (as the Lim-5 and Lim-6s) and in China (as the J-5 and J-5As), with the total number reaching 10,500 examples.
