Since its foundation in the late 1930s, more than 55,000 aircraft of over 400 sub-types have been produced by the MiG Design Bureau. From Artem Mikoyan’s 25hp Oktyabrenok of 1937 to the Mach 2.8-capable MiG-31 Foxhound and the next generation of 21st Century MiG-35s, this 100-page special publication is a tribute to the designers, engineers and crews who have created, operated and flown the most famous of Soviet military aircraft.

In this magazine:

That was how a furious Winston Churchill describes the shooting down of an RAF Avro Lincoln by Soviet MiG-15s in March 1953.

MiG Pistons
MiG OKB produced thousands of piston-powered fighters and several intriguing prototypes during World War Two.

MiG Enters the Jet Age
Steve Bridgewater investigates the history of the MiG-9 Fargo.
