East German fighter aircraft LIM-5 (MIG-17F) COBI 5825 - Cold War

Kit of East German fighter aircraft LIM-5 (MIG-17F) with NATO code marking "Fresco". The assembled model has a removable cockpit cover for easy installation of the pilot figure. The model can stand on its own landing gear, or on the included stand with a description. Due to the construction of the model, the landing gear legs are not retractable but can be easily removed. The figure has an oxygen mask on, so unfortunately we can't see if it has the famous East German moustache.

You know that:

  • The LIM-5 fighter, actually the MIG-17F, was produced for the East German Air Force by the Polish WSK Mielec plant under the Mikoyan-Gurevich licence from 1955.
  • The design of the MIG-17 is based on its successful predecessor, the MIG-15, but the wing design has been substantially redesigned.
  • The result was a heavily armed fighter capable of flight in all weather conditions.
  • Although the Klimov VK-1 engine was identical to the MIG-15, there was one significant change. For the first time, the afterburner function was used on a Russian engine.
  • However, the first prototype was not without its problems. Already in February 1950, Soviet pilot Ivan Ivashchenko exceeded the speed of 1114 km/h on the SI-01 prototype, but on the next flight the machine failed fatally and the test pilot died. 
  • Without a proper investigation into the cause of the tragedy, a decision was made, under pressure from the new generation of American jet aircraft, to begin serial production.
  • Eventually, the MIG-17 became a very successful aircraft, which was armed by all Warsaw Pact countries.
  • Several countries, such as Angola, Mali, Mozambique, Tanzania, and North Korea, still fly the MIG-17 today.
  • With the advent of the American B-58 and FB-111 supersonic bombers, the MIG-17 became obsolete and was gradually replaced by the MIG-21, but that's another story.
  • The machine with fuselage number 905 can be found in the collections of the Military History Museum Berlin-Gatow.
