Caption: MiG-15. View of a Soviet MiG-15 jet fighter. The MiG-15 (NATO reporting name 'Fagot') was the first swept-wing jet fighter produced by the Soviet Union. A product of the design bureau of Mikoyan and Gurevich, it far outclassed comparable Western fighters when it appeared in the skies over Korea in 1949. It was small, nimble and carried a powerful armament of to 23mm cannons and one 37mm cannon. Over 12,000 were built with a further 6000 built under licence, making this the most widely-produced jet aircraft of all time. The two-seat training version (MiG-15UTI) is still in service with many air forces.
