The MiG-19P was the first variant of the MiG-19 radar-equipped interceptors, which was developed in parallel with the MiG-19S clear-weather fighter in the early 1950s. It was also used for limited close air support and fighter-bomber roles, mounting two cannons and carrying unguided missiles or bombs. It was a single-seat, all-metal monoplane powered by two Mikulin RD-9B turbojets.
The MiG-19Ps were assigned to Soviet Air Force VVS, PVO and naval units and outside the USSR, within the Warsaw Pact, the largest user of the MiG-19P interceptor was Czechoslovakia, receiving a total of 27 aircraft in 1957. The Polish Air Force acquired a total of 24 ‘P’ models in 1957-58.
