The Shenyang J-5 (Chinese: ?-5) (NATO reporting name Fresco is a Chinese-built single-seat jet interceptor and fighter aircraft derived from the Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17. The J-5 was exported as the F-5 and was originally designated Dongfeng-101 (East Wind-101) and also Type 56 before being designated J-5 in 1964. The Soviet built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 (Fresco) was initially called the MiG-15bis+45° and completed its maiden flight on January 13, 1950 and entered service in 1952. There were five variants of the MiG-17 with the MiG-17F (Fresco C) becoming the main variant. The new Klimov VK-1F engine was the first Soviet built engine with an afterburner and variable nozzle. The installation of this new engine gave the MiG-17F double the rate of climb of previous variants and greatly improved vertical maneuvers. This aircraft lacked radar and was purely a day-time fighter. Primary Role: Fighter Aircraft.
In the early 1950s China acquired a number of Soviet built MiG-17 Fresco A Day-Fighters and began to produce their own version of this aircraft design, the Shenyang J-5 and F-5 for export. In 1966 Mao Zedong was the Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and began a Cultural Revolution. Sayings in support of Mao’s ideology appeared every where including on aircraft. This aircraft wears “Long Live the great Communist Party”, “No fear of Sacrifice, get rid of all obstacles to gain victory” “Mao Zedong”.
