You know that:

  • The design of a completely new Soviet jet aircraft was greatly helped by the Focke-Wulf Ta 183 plans seized from German factories at the end of World War II. 
  • The biggest problem for MIG designers in the early days of jet aircraft production was the engine. The Soviets first tried to improve the original German BMW 003 engines, but these attempts were not very successful. Eventually, MIG had to ask then-leader J. Stalin to try to purchase a British license from Rolls-Royce. Historical records state that Stalin responded to this request by saying "What fool would sell us a licence for the result of secret research". The Russian delegation was all the more surprised when the British Trade Minister, Sir Staffard Cripps, sold them one.
  • The engine was transported to the Soviet Union, dismantled and copied.
  • Rolls-Royce subsequently attempted a £207 million legal settlement, but never received any money from the Soviet Union.
  • The MIG-15 from the Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau first flew from Nizhnenovgorod corporate airfield on 30 December 1947.
  • The MIG-15 saw its first live deployment in 1950 at the end of the Chinese Civil War and subsequently during the Korean War, where the fighter initially had no competition.
  • The MIG's air supremacy ended only with the arrival of more advanced versions of the American F-86 Sabre during the fighting in the dreaded area known as "MIG Alley".
  • MIG-15 fighters served in many Warsaw Pact armies until the late 1970s, when they were hopelessly obsolete.
  • Today, only North Korea operates a MIG-15 squadron.
  • As good an aircraft as the MIG-15 was, it had one major flaw. When the throttle was applied, the flame was "torn off", i.e. the engine simply went out. This situation used to happen to rookies, but also to experienced pilots in a stressful situation. Later modifications eliminated this problem.
  • More than 18,000 were produced in various versions.
