    2. F-88.I did`nt notice that.There was precursor to the F-101 Voodoo (prototypes only)called “F-88”.MiG15 had two 23mm and one 37mm cannon.A lot of fire power compared with the F-86.It just had six 50 caliber machine guns.All later USAF aircraft had cannons.It also was smaller and lighter,thus had a higher climb rate and a marginally tighter turning radius.Speed was about the same.What made American pilots prevail in the Korean War was training.Which was far better than the Soviets,North Koreans or Chinese.

    3. And no one has thought to mention that it’s NATO call sign is the Fagot. 🙂

      I’m certain that the reference is to fire wood but it’s interesting that the Mig-15 is the only one of these aircraft that you don’t hear referred to by it’s call sign.

    4. @MarauderDeuce ,UN Forces,then NATO.Yea,they were a bit miffed when they ran across this thing in Korea.The USAF initially had nothing to counter it with but F-80`s and “Twin Mustang” F-82`s.Nowadays they`d probably call it a “Newfag”.

    5. Nah, I’m fairly certain that Fagot here refers to a bundle of wood. Yet another term which doesn’t get much use as it’s now rude.
