DETAILED THREAT KNOWLEDGE

The heritage of Foreign Materiel Exploitation
1945 – Exploiting The ME-262
The Problem with the Russians

A Dream Come True
MiG-15bis Flown by No Kum Sok defected on 21 September 1953
Most important technical intelligence of the 1950s: Validated our methods

Testing the MiG-15
§MiG-15 flown at Wright Patterson, Eglin,
PAX River
§ Flew against B-47, B-36, F-84 and F-86

1969: The MiG-17F’s Turn

What We Had
HAVE DRILL
Instrumented
Periscope
SCAN FIX radar
172 sorties
HAVE FERRY
Back-up A/C
No Periscope
No radar
52 Sorties

U.S. Test Equipment
AFFTC personnel replaced the clock, airspeed indicator,
altimeter, and accelerometer, plus installed a machmeter
-Installed voice tape recorder in cockpit and photo recorder
for instruments in the nose compartment
-14-channel oscillograph mounted in gun platform where
ammo boxes were. It weighed 75 pounds
-Recorded fuel flow/temp, OAT, engine RPM, airspeed/altitude,
control surface positions, attitude, roll-pitch-yaw rates,
accelleration and the EVENT button

MiG-17 Cockpit Modifications

G meter
Intervalometer
Airspeed
Altimeter
Machmeter
EGT/Tach
Tape recorder
UHF radio
OSC/Event

The MiG-17F cockpit

Antiquated design
Cramped for a man
over 6 feet and the seat
was not adjustable
-Excellent periscope

Testing The MiG-17

300-350 KIAS – MiG’s best speed advantage, we couldn’t outturn it
450 KIAS+ Speed is Life
No smoke trail
SCAN FIX lit the AAA warning light
Combat radius –
115nm clean
215nm w/tanks
Aircraft was extremely reliable!! 4-5 sorties a day

37mm/23mm Gun Tests

Don’t Get Hit By Them

Technical Test Lessons Learned
Exploited SRD-1 SCAN FIX, SRO-2 IFF, VHF radio, SIRENA RWR – Learned a Lot!
VK-1F engine
Infrared/Acoustic/Radar Measurements
Vulnerability Study
Hydraulics – Who needs them?
She’s hard to steer – differential braking
375 gallons internal fuel – 20-25 minutes
Hard to see!! Little and clean
Above 375 KIAS – Dutch Roll

HAVE FERRY

Good Stuff to Know
-Above Mach .85 control very heavy (2 hands)…8.0g limit
-In 224 flights, only 23 major discrepancies occurred and only two missions
were lost
-They spun it once (fully developed) during flight test. Spun to the left, full right
rudder did nothing for four turns..popped stick full forward (to white line)
..recovered after 23 seconds/3,000 ft
-Controls did not have pitch, roll, or yaw stability augmentation and only the ailerons were hydraulically boosted. Rudder/elevator manual
-HAVE DRILL was Lim-5 serial number 1C-07-18, built in Poland in 1956-57.
The LIS-5 engine was serial number 559128
Aircraft Arrival First Flight Total sorties
HAVE DRILL 27 Jan 69 17 Feb 69 172/131.3 hrs/55 days
HAVE FERRY 12 Mar 69 9 Apr 69 52/37.7 hrs/20 days
