All this talk about the MIG-15 and it's cannons, the US never went with them because they were to heavy and the ammo was limited, the 6 .50 cal on the F-86 like those of WWII could be adjusted to intersect at a certain distance, you could also fire 4 at one time or 2 at a time.. A 3 sec burst from 6 .50s was all that was needed. But the big difference here were the pilots, and the MIG-15 was pretty crude compared to the F-86, tactics will out way armorment.
I have no idea what variant it is, but this is a MiG that I found while I was strolling around a rather large, rainforesty park in Southern China.

Shenyang J-5A all weather fighter (the small radar dome in the intake)
The people's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyr'd dead
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their hearts' blood dyed its ev'ry fold.
Then raise the scarlet standard high,
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.
The .50 cal MGs were obsolescent as air to air weapons post WW2-the USN abandoned them in favour of 20mm cannon for their jet fighters and even for later versions of the piston engine aircraft types-all other countries that designed aircraft after the war also made the change to cannon-the Brownings lacked range and explosive effect, remembering that USAF never actually faced the problem of shooting down modern enemy bombers in any numbers late in WW2 and would have found great problems doing so with the .50s given the increase in size and structure of aircraft in the post war period.
