A 1961 USSR-DPRK mutual assistance and military cooperation treaty meant that a number of MiG-19S Farmer-C supersonic fighter-bombers were delivered to the DPRKAF. At least 15 MiG-19Ss, and possibly more than twice that number, were delivered. It is possible that further batches of MiG-19s were supplied to North Korea. In 1983, 30 MiG-19s were transferred to Iraq. All aircraft included in this transfer are believed to have been Farmer-Cs, as no Shenyang F-6s had reached North Korea at this juncture. In 1997, 120 MiG-19/Shenyang F-6 reportedly remained in service. It may be presumed that all Russian-built MiG-19s have been withdrawn from service. Also see Shenyang F-6.
