Johnson’s Operation Rolling Thunder policy of gradually advancing the “bombing line” towards Hanoi and Haiphong, hoping the North Vietnamese government would capitulate, gave the VPAF MiG-17 and MiG-19 pilots time to hone their skills, make good their losses and study US tactics. Diversionary airfields were built and aircraft were carefully hidden in “farm building” maintenance shelters near their bases. Others were parked in caves and transported to their bases by Russian helicopters. The rapid knock-out blows to airfields advocated by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1965 was met with the presidential response “Bomb, bomb, bomb.
This short-recoil 23mm gun fired up to 650 rounds per minute at the same muzzle velocity as the N-37D, and its projectiles (80 per gun) weighed seven ounces each. 31 Re-arming and servicing the MiG-17’s three cannon was simplified by winching down the guns and their ammunition boxes – the shaped fairings covering the guns also hinged downwards to ease access. American pilots in their combat reports often commented on the flame and smoke visible around the MiG’s nose when the guns fired, as well as the “flaming golf ball” appearance of their large shells in flight.
To maintain balance, the solitary N-37 cannon was replaced by a third NR-23 gun. A handful of victories were claimed by 921st FR pilots that had been specially trained to fly the MiG-17PF. MiG-19S “FARMER-C”/SHENYANG J-6 Having many innovations compared with the MiG-17, the MiG-19 was the Russian equivalent of the F-100 Super Sabre. Both aircraft were marginally capable of attaining supersonic speed in level flight, the MiG-19 having achieved this as the first Soviet supersonic interceptor in December 1952 – four months ahead of the F-100.
