GarageImage MiG-19PT.jpg

The MiG-19PT is a Rank VI Soviet jet fighter with a battle rating of 10.3 (AB/RB/SB). This aircraft was introduced in Update 1.85 "Supersonic" and was one of the first three jets to feature guided air-to-air missiles, the other two being the F-100D and the Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9. The MiG-19PT is the top-rank aircraft in the Soviet fighter line-up.

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. Describe the armour, if there is any, also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.


Offensive armament

Describe the offensive armament of the aircraft, if any. Describe how effective the cannons and machine guns are in a battle, and also what belts or drums are better to use. If there is no offensive weaponry, delete this subsection.

Suspended armament

Describe the aircraft's suspended armament: additional cannons under the wings, bombs, rockets and torpedoes. This section is especially important for bombers and attackers. If there is no suspended weaponry remove this subsection.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but 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).


Main article: RP-5

The MiG-19PT is equipped with a RP-5 search and tracking radar. One radar antenna is located in the centre of the air intake, while the other (and the main body of the radar) is located in the nose of the aircraft, above the intake.

Pros and cons


  • Second highest top speed in jets
  • Higher top speed possible than F-100D above 6,500 m
  • Incredibly high rate of climb
  • Hard-hitting guns, Low recoil effects due to wing root placement
  • Moderate energy retention
  • Roll rate superior to the MiG-17
  • Incredible acceleration in Arcade battle
  • Has a target detection and tracking radar


  • Bad Rudder, making it difficult to aim at a target at high speeds
  • Compression at high speed, your wing don't provide the lift as high as the Super Sabre
  • Difficult to land, suggest don't use landing flap when going for a touchdown to allow the nose to retain some control
  • Wings can rip when rolling and turning at high speed
  • No bomb load
  • Only two air-to-air missiles, Locking range is 0.5 km less than that of the AIM-9B on F-100D
  • Poor low-speed manoeuvrability
  • Ventral fin will impact the ground during takeoff if the rotation is prematurely initiated resulting in the tail breaking off
  • Engines are huge; can be easily disabled by enemy fire
  • Radar suite is not as good as the one fitted on the Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9 and Mitsubishi T-2


After taking its first flight in 1954, the MiG-19 became a worldwide sensation – it was the first mass-produced aircraft capable of breaking the sound barrier in horizontal flight after taking off from the ground. Although it was the most advanced combat aircraft of its day, the MiG-19 also had certain problems with maneuverability, and certain other improvements also took shape that were then used in the upgraded versions of the MiG-19. The fighter received an all-movable stabilizer that significantly improved its flight characteristics, enhanced control and braking systems, and new, more powerful 30mm guns instead of 23mm guns. One of the most interesting modifications was the MiG-19PT fighter-interceptor, which was developed especially for the installation of K-13 (P-3C) air-to-air missiles. This missile was strongly influenced by the extremely successful American Sidewinder, models of which the Soviet Union received from China. The MiG-19PT’s flight tests were successfully completed in 1964. The K-13 missile was then used on an entire series of combat aircraft and remained in active use until the end of the 80s. The MiG-19 itself was modernized several times and participated in many armed conflicts. Over 2,000 MiG-19s were manufactured in the USSR, and even more MiGs were manufactured in China: over 4,500 units.
