Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19 (Farmer)
Shenyang J-6

Designed to replace the MiG-17, the MiG-19 prototype first flew in 1953.  The MiG-19 was the Soviet Union's first supersonic fighter.  With its wings swept at 55o, large wing fences were used to "keep the airflow from defecting to the wingtips".

The MiG-19 was also license built in China by Shenyang.  The Chinese version was designated the J-6.  Possibly as many as 10,000 were built by the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia and China.

The NATO reporting name for the MiG-19 was "Farmer").
