Gepard can you tell me, if possible, which were the Lim-5 S/N´s, i, for some reason didn´t save the link you once sent me with some of them but wasn´t really sure if you can tell the Lim-5 from the MiG-17F´s, i´m just trying to be as precise as i can.

 

Thanks in advance, and any other of the German guys, if you have the info it´ll be greatly appreciated.

 

Enoc.

Lim was the polish designation for the licence built MiG-15 and 17. Lim-1 was the MiG-15 if i remember correctly.

The MiG-17F TK has in the game is basically a polish Lim-something. The soviet made MiG-17F had not had hardpoints for armament between gears and fuselage. They used only the hardpoints under the wings for fuel tanks and bombs. The hardpoint for unguided rockets, which is standard in game is a polish intention. The last Lim had additionally a brake chute container in the tailroot and a modified main gear. It had two smaller wheels instead the big one.

For the correct type designations i must check my achive first.

Accordingly to the german book "MiG-Flugzeuge" by W. Kopenhagen Transpress Verlag 1988

the Lim's were

 

Lim-1  = MiG-15 licence by PZL (Panstwowe Zaklady Lotnicze)

Lim-2 =  MiG-15 bis

Lim-2A = MiG-15 UTI

Lim-2R = MiG-15bisR (recon bird)

Lim-5 = MiG-17F

Lim-5P = MiG-17PF

Lim-5M = MiG-17F fighterbomber (like stock MiG-17F in game)

Lim-5R = recon version

Lim-5MR = recon version with modified nose

Lim-6 = polish invented MiG-17F version with brakechute and other maingears.

Lim-6bis = improved version

Lim-6bisR = recon bird

 

 

The east german MiG-17F were mostly Lim-5 when delivered (only some came second had from soviet units). Later they were modified to Lim-5M standard. But it was always used the soviet name, not the polish designation

      Many of us have used Joe Baughers site for US military serial numbers. http://users.rcn.com/jeremy.k/serialSearch.html  I got to looking for serials for other countries and figured this could be a help to modders in SF2 and DCS
       
      RAF current aircraft
      http://www.ukserials.com/
       
      Former RAF aircraft (gallery, not a listing like others)

      Overall listings
      http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/countries/countries-territories.htm
       
      this site needs some hunting, but many of the air arms that can be looked up give information on how their air craft are serialed
       
       
      Hope this can help modders of all stripes and please feel free to add to this list.
