Go further back, a more likely candidate may be the German Third Reich WW2 Messerschmitt P.1101 (captured by the Russians as well? (or at least spy information)?)220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:56, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
"610 aircraft were built, including prototypes and they entered service in 1948 with the Soviet Air Forces." Please reword so the number is not at the start.
"defend Chinese cities" from what?
link "MiG-15" at first mention.
It was already, last line of the first paragraph of the lede.
"the Council of People's Commissars ordered that the Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau (OKB) to"
"Intended as a bomber destroyerinterceptor" it's your call.
Interceptors don't necessarily have a heavy cannon armament, just, usually, short range and high rate of climb.
"Three prototypes should be readywere scheduled for flight tests by 15 March 1946."]
Not sure I agree with this. The Council ordered that three aircraft be ready, just like it ordered that the aircraft meet various performance goals. That's not quite the same thing as scheduled, IMO. It's a subtle distinction, I know. What are your thoughts?
"izdeliye F" italicise; please check throughout article.
♠"That's not quite the same thing as scheduled". I'd say stick to something like "instructed be ready". In a Red AF context, this was akin to a command performance, & the penalty for missing a deadline could be fairly serious. TREKphilerany time you're ready, Uhura 03:50, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
I think Trekphiler is correct. I'd change the original wording, but prefer Trek's wording. Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:57, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
It may be worth mentioning the other designs produced as a result of the Feb 45 meeting (i.e. the Yak-15, Su-9 and La-150). In particular, it may be worth stating that the Yak-15 first flew on the same day as the MiG, and that the MiG alledgedly flew foirst as a result of a coin toss (according to Gunston). Otherwise, after a quick scan it seems OK.Nigel Ish (talk) 22:16, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I added the bit about the coin toss; I just wish that it was confirmed by Gordon. Thanks for looking in on this.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 04:57, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

"First Soviet turbojet developed by Mikoyan-Gurevich..."
I'm confused by this. Was the MiG-9 the first Soviet turbojet? Or the first turbojet designed by Mikoyan-Gurevich? I'm assuming Mikoyan-Gurevich didn't design turbojets for other nations before the MiG-9.R5452 (talk) 02:11, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
