  • HISTORICAL ASPECTS:
    Lieutenant Viktor Ivanovich Chizh, flying the MiG-15Bis, became a distinguished Soviet ace during the Korean War, particularly in the skies over Anshan on November 1, 1950. Chizh, a skilled pilot of the 72nd Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment (GVIAP), achieved multiple victories against American aircraft during intense aerial combat. His notable success contributed to the MiG-15's reputation as a formidable adversary, especially against the American F-86 Sabre.
    The Korean War marked a crucial period for the MiG-15Bis, demonstrating its superiority in various air-to-air engagements. With its swept-wing design and powerful VK-1 engine, the MiG-15 proved to be a worthy opponent in dogfights against contemporary jet fighters. Chizh's exceptional skill and the aircraft's performance showcased the capabilities of Soviet aviation technology during this conflict.
    This 1:72 scale model faithfully replicates the aircraft flown by Chizh during his daring missions over Anshan, offering a tangible connection to a pivotal moment in aviation history. Own a piece of this iconic aircraft's legacy and celebrate the bravery and skill of Lieutenant V. I. Chizh with this finely detailed model.
