Albanian Air Force - MiG-19PM interceptor fighter

Twelve Soviet-built MiG-19PM Farmer-D delivered in October 1959. The MiG-19PM was a radar-equipped all-weather interceptor and the first fighter in Albanian service to be equipped with missiles as its primary armament, (no cannon were installed). The aircraft were based at Rinas. The new interceptors completed the SA-75 Dvina battalion that was delivered in the same year.
