KPC-026 1/72 Mikoyan MiG-15 Fagot Soviet jet fighter model kit
KPC-026 1/72 Mikoyan MiG-15 Fagot Soviet jet fighter model kitDuring W.W.II the pestilence aircraft reacted the top of their performances. The only solution tor the increase of their performances was the us of jet propulsion. In connection with it, new aerodynamic elements, limewater and new designs were necessary.
In 1947 then) appeared two fighter planes, which later became rival sin 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 altar the successful government test the series production began, with the designation MiG-15. The fifteen the performed excellent night 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 wight. better maneuverability. climb and more effective armament.
Czechoslovak Air Force was the first A. F. outside U.S.S.R. which accepted MiG-15 into the service. MiG-15 a replaced already obsolete piston-engine S-199s. In 1951 started the license production of MiG-15 in Czechoslovakia. inch. engines, armament and equipment in fifties the fighters MiG-15 appeared always there, where political crisis or conflicts were centrical. In the history of air warfare the MiG-15 played an important military and political role.
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 Haps opened 20 by take off and 55 by landing. The ailerons deflection was 115. 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 and 9 combustion chambers. The jet was of constant diameter.
All armament was placed on a special lafayette 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 hardpan for drop tanks, rocket project or bombs.
The radio equipment was of OSP-48 system with SRO idenification unit. Main dimensions:
Span - 10,08 m
Length - 10,10 m
Height - 3.70 m
Winy area - 20,60 m2
