Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The MiG-17AS is outfitted with the following offensive weapons:

  • 1 x 37 mm N-37D autocannon (40 rounds)
  • 2 x 23 mm NR-23 autocannons (80 rounds each - 160 total)

Suspended armament

The MiG-17AS can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 2 x 250 kg OFAB-250-270 bombs (500 kg total)
  • 2 x S-21 unguided rockets
  • 2 x R-3S air-to-air missiles

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very hard-hitting firepower
  • Good manoeuvrability at slow to moderate speeds
  • Has access to two air-to-air missiles
  • Access to premium rewards
  • Better high-speed manoeuvrability than the MiG-15
  • Doesn't rip its wings easily
  • Good top speed, especially in a dive

Cons:

  • Slow roll rate at high speeds
  • Short-ranged missiles
  • T-tail and framed canopy creates a blind spot to the rear (issue for simulator battles)
  • Low ammo capacity for the guns

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
