The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 is a high-subsonic fighter aircraft produced by the Soviet Union in the 1950s and early 1960s. An advanced development of the MiG-15, the MiG-17 was designed to address the former's limitations, particularly in handling and stability at high speeds.

Characterized by its swept wings and afterburner-equipped engine, the MiG-17 played a significant role in air combat during the Vietnam War, where it was used effectively by North Vietnamese pilots against American aircraft. The aircraft was known for its agility, climb rate, and ruggedness, making it a formidable adversary in dogfights. The MiG-17 was widely exported and saw service in various air forces around the world. Its operational history, impact on air combat tactics during the Cold War, and its role in numerous conflicts make the MiG-17 a subject of great interest for military aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, particularly those with a focus on jet fighter development and air warfare history.
