MiG-19 FARMER - Variants

A significant number of experimental aircraft (MiG-19PM, the MiG-19PMU, SM-10, SM-20, SM-LP, MiG-19SU, etc.) were built on the basis of the MiG-19 fighter for the development of new weapons systems, avionics, engines, refueling and starting from a catapult.

  • MiG-19 - The serial version of the SM-9/1 based on the prototype I-360 (SM-2). From prototype there were different arms of the three guns, HP-23, the presence of underwing pylons for the suspension arms and the PTB, and a number of structural changes. This model had two Turbojet AM-9B (2h2600 kgs without FC and 2h3250 kgf afterburning) and wing swept by 5.5 degrees (1/4 chords). Plant #21 built about 50 MiG-19, which entered into service in March 1955.
  • MiG-19BR - unmanned reconnaissance (draft). Developed in 1958, the OKB S.M.Alekseeva.
  • MiG-19C ( "product 61") - frontline fighter with all-moving stabilizer. Notable guns, HP-30, additional air intakes in the rear, a small fairing behind the cockpit, the new air brakes, linings on the fuselage to protect against the powder gases guns. He produced in the years 1956-1957. It reached a record rate of climb 180 m / s and maximum speed, corresponding to M-1.462. The serial version of the SM-9/3; factories in Gorky and Novosibirsk built the MiG-19C serial basic model based on the MiG-19, equipped with all-moving stabilizer.
  • MiG-19F - export version of the MiG-19C. Notable composition of avionics. Bundled in Indonesia.
  • MiG-19M - radio-controlled target. Developed in 1958, the OKB S.M.Alekseeva.
  • MiG-19P (SM-7) ( "product 62") was an all-weather fighter-interceptor for air defense to counter enemy bombers in bad weather and at night, equipped with radiopritselom RP-1 "Emerald" (target detection range of the EPR 16 kv.m- 12km, range support - 2 km). The prototype interceptor SM-7/1 is based on the SM-9/1 with the horizontal tail stabilizer and elevators. Under the wing installed four pylons for the suspension arms and two pylons for the suspension of the PTB. Instead of one fuselage LDPE are two on the wingtips. The main difference perehvatichka from front-line fighter was the radar RP-1 "Emerald", established as an interrogator and transponder system "friend or foe" and warning receiver electromagnetic radiation. In connection with the installation of the radar fuselage length increased by 36 cm. Armament - two cannons NR-23, in the roots of wings and four blocks NAR PO-57-8 eight 57-mm rockets ARSCH-57 each. The first flight of the SM-7/1 executed August 28, 1954 VA Nefedov. The second prototype of the SM-7/2 got the all-moving stabilizer and armament of two 30-mm cannons NR-30, but has retained a number of design features specific to the SM-9/1. In 1955, CM-7 put into production under the designation MiG-19P ("P" - Interceptor). Interceptors first series armed with cannons NR-23, late - HP-30. In the process of mass production of radar "Emerald-1" was replaced by radar "Emerald-2." In 1956-1958 the #21 plant manufactured 433 aircraft.
  • MiG-19PG - modified to could carry missiles R-3S . Equipped with missile guidance from the ground Complex "Horizon-1". In the early 1960s there were converted MiG-19P.
  • MiG-19PM (SM7 / M) ( "product 65") - Interceptor SM7 / M was a modernized interceptor, the latest production version of the MiG-19. It was designed for purely missiles of four UR "air-air" K-5M (RS - 2US), there was no gun armament. Instead UR K-5M permitted suspension rockets of various types and sizes. The forward fuselage installed radar "Emerald-2." Horizontal tail - the type SM-9/1, with elevators. The first flight of the SM-7 / M performed at the end of January 1956. In 1957 it started serial production under the designation MiG-19PM. In 1956-1960 the plant #21 manufactured 369 aircraft.
  • MiG-19PML - interceptor complex "Lazur". In 1958 a converted part of the previously issued MiG-19PM.
  • MiG-19PM / PMU, equipped with a guidance system in the winter "Lazur", sometimes referred to MiG-19PML.
  • MiG-19SV ( "product 61") - High-altitude day interceptor MiG-19SV developed based on tactical fighter MiG-19C specifically to intercept high-altitude targets such as British intelligence Canberra. The most lightweight version of the MiG-19C, its armament was a HP-30 gun. The design of the airplane facilitated lifted wing cannons (one left fuselage), 2 meters square increased wing area. The power plant consists of two Turbojet AM 9BF / RD-9BF with afterburner thrust of 3300 kgf. For the pilot there was developed a pressure suit with a mask. Had a braking parachute and radio altimeter RV-2. December 6th, 1956 during flight tests NI Korovushkin dynamic ceiling reached 20,740 m. The MiG-19SV was built in small series, and by the armed forces air defense regiments, covering the strategic objects of the USSR. Produced since 1956, the plant #21. Part of the MiG-19C converted to aircraft repair plants.
  • MiG-19R - tactical intelligence on the basis of MiG-19SV. Notable for the engine RD-9BF-1 cameras AFA-39 in the fuselage. Released a small series in the factory #21.
  • MiG-19SF - fighter with RD-9BF engines. Released in small series.
  • MiG-19UTI - Work on the double training MiG-19UTI did not make it out of the design stage.


Over 50 MiG-19s, mainly MiG-19C, were used by the EDB as testbeds for a variety of systems, design solutions, etc. Four MiG-19SU equipped with a combined power plant of two Turbojet AM 9BM and liquid rocket booster container which was suspended under the fuselage. A few MiG-19SU-based MiG-19C (SM-50) were built and on the basis of the MiG-19P (SM-51 and SM-52). The MiG-19C (SM-10) refueling system worked out by Tu-16. Four modified MIG-19C (CM-20, CM-20 / I CM-R / 1 cm-K / 2) used for processing control cruise missile X-20 (K-20 "Comet"), designed based MiG-19. Extremely dangerous tests were conducted by CM-20 test pilot Amet-Khan Sultan. The Kh-20 armed the Tu-95 strategic bombers.

It should be noted that "C" and "S" represent the same letter in Cyrilic, namely "S".
