MiG-15 Sound – Real Recordings
MiG-15 Sound is the sound of Russian MiG-15 Aircraft from the MAKS Sounds 2019 sound library. The MAKS Sounds 2019 library includes 11 audio files. Total duration: 41 minutes.
The MiG-15 Fagot was one of the first successful jet fighters to incorporate swept wings to achieve high transonic speeds. The MiG-15 and F-86 Sabre were the best fighter aircraft of the Korean War.
The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 had a single VK-1 Turbojet engine which was a direct imitation of the Rolls Royce Nene engine. Great Britain under an agreement of not using the engines in the combat situations brokered a few of the Rolls Royce Nene engines to the Soviet Union back in 1948.
The USSR built 1344 MiG-15, 8352 MiG-15bis and 3434 two-seaters. In the early 1950s, the Soviet Union delivered hundreds of MiG-15s to China. The Soviets also sent almost a thousand MiG-15 engineers and specialists to China, where they assisted China’s Shenyang Aircraft Factory in building the MiG-15UTI trainer (designated JJ-2). China never produced a single-seat fighter version, only the two-seat JJ-2. The number of JJ-2s built remains unknown and the estimates vary between 120 and 500 aircraft.
