The MiG-15 was the primary North Korean fighter aircraft used during the Korean War.

The engine of the aircraft was a virtual duplicate of the Rolls Royce Nene jet engine, obtained through industrial espionage.

The MiG-15 had many encounters with American jets before the Korean War ended. United States aircraft pilots reported a victory ratio of fourteen to one.

Superior training of U.S. pilots, a Soviet World War II gun sight incapable of performing well at jet aircraft speeds, and a reluctance of Soviet aircraft pilots to engage U.S. aircraft have all been said to account for the poor record of the MiG-15. Because the Soviet Union was technically not in the Korean War their pilots could not afford to be captured by the enemy.

The MiG-15 became the primary jet fighter of Warsaw Pact nations until they were retired 1969.

Approximately 18,000 MiG-15 aircraft were built, making it the most produced jet fighter of all time.
