Is The F 86 Jet Fighter Aircraft Superior To The Mig 15
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

During the Korean War the skies over South Korea was filled with F 86 Jet Fighter Aircraft patrolling the skies above the combat zones to keep the Russian Made Mig 15s away from the friendly Troops. We are going to try to find out if the North American F 86 was truly a better dogfighter.

The Allied Air Command found out that they needed a Fighter that could patrol the area over South Korea to provide an Air umbrella over the Allied troops in the combat zone. The North Korean’s were flying combat sorties using Russian Build Mig 15 Jet Fighter Aircraft. They looked similar to the American aircraft but that is where the similarity ended. Although the Mig could out climb a F 86 it had problems if it got into a flat spin they could not recover . The air coming off the main wing would make the horizontal stabilizer and the pilot could not recover, so he would have to bail out. The F 86 on the other hand has the horizontal stabilizer mounted lower more toward the body of the fuselage this means that it could outperform the Mig 15 in various combat maneuvers, especially turns so this offered an advantage to the F 86 over the Mig 15

The creature comfort of the F- 86 versus the Mig 15 is another point of contention. The f 86 has heating and air conditioning in the cockpit that could be controlled so that the pilot could set his climate controls system to any comfort level he desired. The F 86 pilot also had a G-suit that helped control the blood flow of the pilot during high speed maneuvering rates thus keeping the pilot from blacking out during the maneuvering. The Mig 15 pilots had neither G-suits, heating or air conditioning in their Jet Fighter Aircraft making this jet fighter aircraft very inhospitable to creature comforts and fighting blackouts during high speed maneuvering.

So in closing my own opinion is with the vast difference between the North American F-86 and the Russian Built Mig-15. If I was going to be in air Combat with a jet fighter aircraft during the Korean War I would definitely want to fly a F-86. As in my opinion after researching the 2 Jet fighter Aircraft I would rather fly the Cadillac of the skies at the time rather than a Model-t as the Mig 15 jet fighter aircraft was at the time. That is probably why the dispatch rate for the F-86 was 10 to 1. For every F 86 that was shot down the F 86 pilots shot down 10 of the Mig 15 Jet fighter Aircraft
