SCALE & KIT
The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 is a jet fighter aircraft developed by Mikoyan-Gurevich for the Soviet Union. The MiG-15 was one of the first successful jet fighters to incorporate swept wings to achieve high transonic speeds. In combat over Korea, it outclassed straight-winged jet day fighters, which were largely relegated to ground-attack roles, and quickly countered the similar American swept-wing North American F-86 Sabre.
The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15bis is an upgraded variant of the MiG-15 jet fighter. It utilises an improved version of the RD-45 (imported British Rolls–Royce Nene) turbojet engine, the Klimov VK-1, for increased performance. The MiG-15bis also has better ground attack capability with underwing hardpoints for bombs and rockets.
