The MIG-17, a Soviet-made fighter plane, achieved widespread recognition as one of the iconic symbols of the "Cold War" era, serving in the air forces of 40 countries worldwide. The aircraft was initially built in 1949, quickly followed by mass production. It featured a single-seat, single-engine design with a medium wing and an all-metal duralumin structure. One of its distinguishing characteristics was the angled wings with three air stream deflectors on each side. At the front of the plane, there was an air inlet to the engine divided into two channels by a vertical partition. The pilot's cabin was airtight and included a retractable seat. The rear housed a single turbojet engine. Its permanent armament consisted of two 23mm NR-23 air cannons with 80 rounds each and one 37mm N-37D with 40 rounds. Additionally, the plane had the capacity to carry interchangeable bombs or additional fuel tanks. This highly popular and successful design underwent numerous developmental versions. In Poland, the MIG-17 was also produced under the name LIM-5 from 1956 onward.
