New book, 74 pages, 170+ colour profiles. It was in 1950 at the start of the Korean War that the West discovered the MiG-15, the first jet-propelled fighter mass produced by the Soviet Union. This fast, powerfully armed little machine, especially its improved version, the MiG-15bis, quickly turned out to be a formidable adversary for the United Nation forces. a situation which lasted until the more developed variants of the F-86 Sabre arrived and wrestled air supremacy back for the United States. In all, more than 13,000 "Fagots" - the offiicial NATO code name - were built, of which 3.440 were MiG-15UTI "Midget" two-seaters. The fighter was also licence built in large numbers in Czechoslovakia, Poland and China. The "Fagot" successor, the MiG-17 "Fresco", which performed better and had different wings, had more than 11,000 examples built up till 1958, including several hundred in China and Czechoslovakia. Although the MiG-17 was withdrawn from service at the end of the sixties, it was very successful abroad, the "Fresco" being the most exported Soviet fighter until the arrival of its indirect successor the MiG-21.
