During W.W. II the piston-engine aircraft reached the top of their performances. The only solution for the increase of their performances was the use of jet propulsion. In connection with it, new aerodynamic elements, new materials and new designs were necessary.
in 1947 there appeared two fighter planes, which later became rivals in the sky of the Korean Conflict - North American F-86 Sabre and Soviet I-310. The latter was test flown on 30th December 1947 and after the successful government tests the series production began, with the designation MiG-15. The 'fifteenths' performed excellent flight characteristics, performances, maneuverability and aerodynamical cleanness. Outstanding was the technological simplicity of production and the easy servicing in field conditions. MiG-15 could operate from grass airfields, under complicated meteorological conditions, by day and night. In comparison with the F-86 Sabre, MiG-15 had a tower weight, better maneuverability, climb and more effective armament.
Czechoslovakian Air Force was the first A. F. outside U.S.S.R., which accepted MiG-15s into the service. MiGs replaced already obsolete piston-engined S-199s. In 1951 started the license production of MiG-15 in Czechoslovakia, incl. engines, armament and equipment. In fifties the fighters MiG-15 appeared always there, where political crisis or conflicts were critical. In the history of air warfare the MiG-15 played an important military and political role.
Technical description
MiG-15 was a fighter or fighter-bomber (MiG-15SB) of all-metal construction with swept wing and tail. The swept-angle of the wing was 35°, the negative dihedral 2°. On the upper surface of wing there were two aerodynamical 'fences'. The flaps opened 20° by take off and 55° by landing. The ailerons deflection was ±15. The fuselage was of semimonocoque all metal construction with a detachable rear part for easy maintenance of the engine.
The angle of brake-plates was 55° when opened. The turbojet engine RD-45F of 22,26 kN (or VK-1 of 26,47 kN for MiG-15bis) had an one-stage turbine arid 9 combustion chambers. The jet was of constant diameter.
All armament was placed on a special 'lafetta' and comprised one cannon N-37mm and two NS-23mm. The latter were later replaced by more effective NR-23mm guns. Beneath the wing were six hardpoints for drop tanks, rocket projectiles or bombs.
The radio equipment was of OSP-48 system with SRO identification unit.
Main dimensions:
Span - 10,08 m
Length - 10,10 m
Height - 3,70 m
Wing area - 20,60 m2

Color schemes:
1. One of the MiG-15s which resisted the American air-superiority in the Korean Conflict. Here, on the Korean skies, MiG-15s demonstrated her capabilities for the first time, with excellent results. This MiG-15, bearing the numerals 22, had a red painted nose. The rest of the plane was the natural color of metal.
2. Nearly on all famous air shows in Czechoslovakia, the MiG-15 aerobatics teams were present. To increase the effect, the upper surfaces of aerobatics MiG-15s were painted red. While the undersurfaces remained unpainted, in the natural color of metal. All interiors, wheel wells, undercarriage legs Were gray. One of the red-painted aerobatics MiG-15s had the codes EP-02.
3. 'Ostravsky' (Ostravian) Air Regiment of fighter-bombers was equipped with MIG-15SB planes. The regiment marking, the emblem of the North Moravian town Ostrava, was placed on both sides of forward fuselage. All surfaces were in natural color of metal. The experienced modeler will be able to paint the emblem on apiece of white decal by hand.
