The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-19; NATO reporting name: Farmer) is a Soviet second generation, single-seat, twin jet-engined fighter aircraft. It was the first Soviet production aircraft capable of supersonic speeds in level flight. A comparable U.S. “Century Series” fighter was the North American F-100 Super Sabre, although the MiG-19 would primarily oppose the more modern McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and Republic F-105 Thunderchief over North Vietnam.

More info:

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19 was a Soviet fighter aircraft that entered service in 1955. It was the first Soviet aircraft to achieve supersonic speeds in level flight, and the world’s first mass-produced supersonic fighter. The MiG-19 had a single-seat cockpit, a mid-wing configuration with swept-back wings, and two Mikulin AM-5 turbojet engines with afterburners.
The MiG-19 was armed with two or three 30 mm cannons, and could also carry rockets, bombs, or air-to-air missiles. The MiG-19 was widely exported to various countries, and saw combat action in several conflicts, such as the Vietnam War, the Six-Day War, and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The MiG-19 was also produced under license by China as the Shenyang J-6, which remained in service until the 21st century.
