Mig-19P (Radar Variant) Cockpit

Recommended Posts

Mig-19P (Radar Variant) Cockpit


A Cockpit mod of the Thirdwire Scooter's cockpit, to create the Cuban-modified Mig-19P working-radar cockpit for use in Wrench's Mig-19P (or any other radar-equipped Mig-19).

 

Download Wrench's Mig-19P aircraft here:

http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?autoc...p;showfile=5070

 

Referenced from multiple color photos, and cockpit layout diagrams.

 

Instruments and placards moved, eliminated, repainted and painted from scratch.

 

Individual instruments in Russian as they were historically.

 

The Mig-19 series flew combat and reportedly got kills in the Viet Nam war, the Arab-Israeli wars and the Indo-Pakistani wars.

 

This aircraft is the one that reportedly sparred with Gary Power's overflying U2.

 

The Mig-19P could easily outclimb the F-4 Phantom at about 35,435 ft/min vs the F-4s 28,500 ft/min.*

 

Top gun training showed that when flying the Mig-19/21, you can often go pure vertical at the merge and often defeat the F-4....or just outturn the F-4 in the deep stall buffet if the F-4 tries to turn slowly too.**

 

What is different compared to my Mig-19S cockpit:

 

1. A radar display was added with correct range lines according to one diagram.

 

2. The cockpit panel is a dark blue per color photos.

 

3. The Mig-19P deleted one ammo counter between the pilot's legs as it was reduced to two NR-23 cannon to make way for the radar.

 

4.The Mig-19P also deleted one red gun arming switch because the Mig-19P only had two internal cannons.

 

5. Tens of other changes including instrument locations, instrument additions and color changes.

 

For SFP1/WOV/WOE/WOI.
