The MiG-19 (NATO code 'Farmer') was the first Soviet production aircraft capable of supersonic speeds in level flight. The design never acheived the level of fame associated with the MiG-17, -19 or -21 models despite being a highly competent attack fighter. This variant, the MiG-19PM was unusual in having no cannon armament, instead employing four K-5M beam-riding missiles. Now preserved at the Voennoistoricheski Muzej (Military History Museum) in central Sofia.
