Very, very pretty MiG-15! What turbine are your running in it?

Interesting that the real MiG-15 had no steerable nosegear - it was simply free pivoting. The pilot would steer the airplane by using individual brakes on the main gear. These brakes were powered by a compressed air cannister. If you ran out of compressed air you had NO brakes or steering.

The MiG was still an incredible feat of aviation history.
