MiG-17PEV Fresco-C 'Abakarab'
During the mid-50's the Parani Air Force needed to update its whole fleet regarding to future conflicts
with their neighbour the Kingdom of Dhimar.
Contacts were made with the Soviet government and a license to build the SU-7 under the name of P-207
But the SU-7 was still in development and Paran needed a modern jetfighter to face an inminent war with
They showed interest for the new MiG-17 which fitted very well in the Air Force needs and was been widely
exported to the allies of the USSR.
Instead of buying a license, they bought some MiG-17 squadrons. The soviets made a new version for Paran, the MiG-17PEV (Paran Export Version) which was basically a modified MiG-17F. It was called 'Abakarab' (Skorpion) by the Parani pilots.
In this version the radar has been removed, the strenght of the wings have been enforced to give the
aircraft more maneuverability, an the three 30mm cannons have been replaced by three 20 mm machine guns with 200 rounds each.
The Skorpion showed its excellent quality in the conflicts against Dhimar where it shot down many
US and Dhimari fighters. It was also very useful and accurate in air to ground missions.
Just drop the contents of the folders in the proper SF2 folders in your computer.

the structure enforced.
