The MiG-19 was the USSR's first mass-built supersonic fighter. The highly-swept, thin, sharply tapering wing was a remarkable characteristic. The MiG-19 proved to be a capable and sturdy combat aircraft, maneuverable and armed with powerful 30mm guns.

China is still building developments (J-6). J-6 is in service with 14 countries, Cuba still operates 30 genuine MiG-19's.
