HISTORY:

Egypt

One of the first Egyptian MiG-19 units was the 15th Air Brigade, consisting of Nos 20 and 21 Squadrons, which became operational at Fayid with a forward location at Milayz in the early 1960s.

In 1962, Egyptian MiG-19s saw some action in the ground-attack role during the North Yemen Civil War.

The first reported air combat in the Middle East with the MiG-19 happened on 29 November 1966 when an Israeli Air Force (IAF) Dassault Mirage III shot down two Egyptian MiG-19s which were trying to intercept an Israeli reconnaissance Piper J-3 Cub in Israeli airspace.

The first MiG was destroyed with a R.530 radar-guided missile fired from less than a mile away, marking the first aerial kill for the French-made missile. The second MiG-19 was dispatched with cannon fire.

Around 80 MiG-19s were in service with Egypt during the Six-Day War in June 1967, but more than half of them were destroyed on the ground during the opening Israeli airstrikes of Operation Focus.

Israeli pilots, however, did find the MiG-19 a potentially dangerous adversary because of its performance, maneuverability, and heavy armament.

Following the war, the Egyptians reorganized their surviving MiG-19 fleet, and assigned them to the air defense of Egypt's interior. The Soviet Union did not supply Egypt with any additional MiG-19s as replacements for those destroyed in the Six-Day War, but Egypt might have received some from Syria and Iraq, so that by the end of 1968 there were more than 80 MiG-19s in service with the Egyptian Air Force.

The aircraft also saw combat during the War of Attrition; in one engagement on 19 May 1969, a MiG-19 engaged two Israeli Mirages, shooting down one with cannon fire while the other escaped. Egypt had around 60 MiG-19s in service during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 in which they served as close air support aircraft

    Simply a matter of performance. Whilst a Drop tank is good for general flying, mainly over long distance, they aren't desirable in air combat. Their added fuel capacity is outweighed by all the cons they bring, namely the excess weight through the the fuel and the tank itself and the extra drag is causes.
    So naturally, you want to get rid of that in combat to give yourself the best possible chance against the enemy.

    @FeatherWing so if you dpnt mind me asking, why would they drop them if they are in combat? (I know for weight and what notbut it looks, like a huge waste

    @FeatherWing I made the screenshots, and yes it isn't realistic but I just didn't think about it while I was doing them, and they look cool so I kibda think it's okay, it's only screenshots, they are here to show off the build so it's good to see the tanks.

    This right here is an impressive build and I can see that you were very dedicated. But I need to point out somethings...... The intake looks a little odd and well... The missile is misplaced... it should be far off the the wing unlike here which is very close to the fuselage.

    Nonetheless this is an amazing build!

    I dunno if it bothers anyone else or not, but I'm going to point it out anyways (not being rude, just observant). The drop-tanks are still attached in the pictures of the Mig-19 engaged in combat, which they realistically shouldn't be.
