Caption: MiG-19. View of a Soviet MiG-19 jet fighter. Powered by two engines, the MiG-19 (NATO reporting name 'Farmer') was the first operational fighter capable of supersonic speeds in level flight. It came from the design bureau of Artem Mikoyan and Mikhail Gurevich and entered service in 1955. It was armed with three 30mm cannons, later models also carried four AA-1 'Alkali' missiles. Over 2,100 were built with a further 3,400 produced under licence in China as the Shenyang J-6. Many were sold for export, serving in more than 20 countries. The MiG-19/J-6 remains in service in North Korean, Myanmar and Zambia.
