Shenyang J-6 Farmer   8.25"   5"

The Shenyang J-6 is the Chinese-built version of the Soviet MiG-19 Farmer fighter aircraft, the world's first mass-produced supersonic aircraft. During the Vietnam War, the supersonic speed advantage provided by the MiG-21's more modern turbojet engine was found to be not as useful in combat as originally thought, because aerial dogfights at the time were conducted almost entirely at subsonic speeds. The J-6 was found to be more manoeuvrable than the MiG-21 and, although slower, its acceleration during dogfights was considered adequate. The North Vietnamese Air Force fielded at least one unit of J-6s during the war, the 925th Fighter Regiment, beginning in 1969.

A particularly unusual feature of the MiG-19 was the long, chin-mounted pitot tube that could hinge upwards to protect it from accidental damage by ground crew and vehicles.

Designed as a Chinese produced version of the MiG-19, the J-6 was first flown on December 17th, 1958.
