Description

The MiG-19 was the first Soviet supersonic fighter developed in the early 1950s. Its definitive clear-weather variant, the MiG-19S, meant a true leap forward in comparison to any other jet fighter of the time and it took the then Soviet Air Force into the world of radar and missiles. It was a single-seat, all-metal monoplane powered by two Mikulin RD-9B turbojets and designed for interception, close air support and limited fighter-bomber roles.

The MiG-19S’s were supplied only to three WarPac countries, Bulgaria, East Germany and Czechoslovakia, with the latter country also building this type under licence. Outside Europe the Soviet Union delivered a number MiG-19S’s to Afghanistan, the League of Arab Nations (Egypt and Syria), Indonesia, Iraq, North Korea and North Vietnam, while other air forces around the world were supplied by the Chinese J-6/F-6 aircraft.
