During the Yom Kippur/Ramadan War in 1973 Egypt operated some MiG-17F strips on the Nile Delta. The 6 Day War of 1967 saw Israel take control of the Sinai Peninsula and the 1973 war was Egypt's attempt to reclaim the area. The MiG-17 aircraft equipped the Egyptian Air Force from the 1950s into the 1980s. The Egyptians obtained MiG-17s from various countries until they had hundreds. After the 6 Day War Egypt began to apply various camouflage schemes and one was called "Nile Valley".

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17F Fresco-C

Designed as an enhanced version of the MiG-15 jet fighter, the MiG-17 was first flown on January 13th, 1950.
