MiG-17PF of the EAF



I .Credits


The basic of my MiG-17PF is the J-5A of Fallout3, which you can find in the Combatace.com downloadsection Modern Era Aircraft/Aircraft of the PLAAF. Fallout3 made a new LOD file, so that an additionally nose section (as in the other MiG-17PF mods) is not longer neccessary.


The cockpit is the great MiG-21PFM cockpit made by MAGO & BADGER the BAD.


My share of this new bird are modified ini files and a new skin.

I made new data.ini on the basic of TK's stock MiG-17F, so the handling of the PF is similar to the F. I also made a new radar by using the datas i have found in the book "Flugzeuge und Hubschrauber der NVA von 1956 bis 1970".


Thanks to all whos files i have used to make this MiG-17PF.



II. MiG-17PF


The MiG-17PF was the successor of the MiG-17P, which was developed by the MiG OKB as a reaction on the radar equipped F-86 Sabre (Project SP). The flight performance of the P was not satisfying, thatswhy a new engine with afterburner was installed. So the PF was born. The PF was the first all weather frontline interceptor of the Soviet Union and formed for a relative short periode the backbone of the all weather interceptor fleet of the Warshaw Pact countries.

In combat action the MiG-17PF was used in the israeli-arab clashes but also in Vietnam. Some american spy planes were shot down over soviet territory by MiG-17PFs of the PVO.

The PF was armed only with 3 23mm guns. In contrary to the chinese copy J-5A the original MiG-17PF had no additionally hardpoints for missiles under the wing. Missiles came later with the gunless MiG-17PFU.


This mod represents an egyptian MiG-17PF before the 6 day war.
