The first MiG-17s reached North Korea in 1956. Initially, MiG-17F Fresco-C entered service, with MiG-17PF Fresco-D arriving in 1958. In all, about 150 MiG-17s – including Chinese-built Shenyang F-5s – were delivered. It may be presumed that the Shenyang F-5s at first supplemented and later replaced the Russian-built MiG-17s. It is unclear if any MiG-17s remain in service. Also see Shenyang F-5.
