The MiG Alley by rOEN911 The MiG Alley by rOEN911

"MiG Alley" is the name given by United Nations (UN) pilots to the northwestern portion of North Korea, where the Yalu River empties into the Yellow Sea. During the Korean War, it was the site of numerous dogfights between UN fighter pilots and their opponents from North Korean (including some unofficially crewed by Soviet airmen) and the Peoples Republic of China.

Soviet-built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 were the aircraft used during most of the conflict and the area's nickname was derived from them. Because it was the site of the first large-scale jet-vs-jet air battles, with the North American F-86 Sabre, the MiG Alley is considered the birthplace of jet fighter combat.

Very good work, but the Sabre had no afterburner, thus no flames coming out of the back.

Incredibly well done. Looks like a scene outta "The Hunters". Before everybody gets too impressed with Soviet tech, keep in mind that it had a BRITISH engine in it that they had copied; the Brit govt had sold them one. That's all they needed. They weren't doing too well with the German engines they copied in their La-15. A great painting regardless.

NICE!  My father worked on the radar gunsights during Korea.  Said he was done when he had the 50's rounds dailed in to glance off each other at 100 yards...............

F-86's proved the superiority of the German axial-flow jet engine design (used by the Me262) over the British centrifugal-flow design used in the MiG-15. Very nicely done. Had to fave this as well. :)

Since the MiG driver was probably a Russian, "Dasv'danya, motherf***er!"


God, the F-86 was the last truly beautiful fighter.

Actually the U.S. Air Force and Naval fighter pilots were the ones who coined the name Mig Alley, and majority of the military forces that were there were U.S. and all the U.N. did was humanitarian work like tending to the civilians who were caught in the middle of the fighting. And it was the U.S. Forces that did 95% of all the fighting in the Korean War. Though military records say that the U.S. fought under the U.N. command they're actually under U.S. command and U.N. forces called on U.S. support.

Actually, the ROKs (South Koreans) had the most troops in the fight.  The next largest percentage was the US, but we weren't anywhere near totally committed, as it was considered a regional war by the Powers-That-Be in Washington.  The British and Commonwealth forces were also significantly involved.  The "UN Command" was commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, and the majority of Allied air assets in Korea were also American.  We should never diminish the contributions of our allies in the Forgotten War, especially the fact that the ROKs carried their weight and then some.


Off topic, if you haven't heard of him before, look up Capt. T.J. Hudner, USN and read his Medal of Honor citation.  It's one of the greatest, and saddest, stories of the air war in Korea.

First off, dis almost don't look 3D!  Dat's how good it is!
Second off, MiG Alley sounds like it should b a video game 4 plane freaks.  I, sho as hell, was one when I was younger.  I'd play da fuck out of it!
Finally, u think u got enough Wikipedia links there, buddy?  :iconloolplz:

They were the masters but the king of MiG Alley were the Corsairs that were by the time of the Korean War were used for bombing strikes though they did get the chance to go toe to toe with a MiG which with the Corsair's lower airspeed made it hard for the MiGs to keep lock and the Corsairs had a tighter turn radius than the MiGs.

Yep and Vietnam War they first flew F-4 Phantoms into MiG Alley though the F-4s didn't have any guns for close quarter combat, but that problem was fixed when they got F-4 Phantoms II.
