- "Granted this plane may seem ancient, but it can still hold its own in a dogfight. How about it? It's a good buy."
- ―Harry's description of this plane in the shop.
The Shenyang J-6 (NATO reporting name of Farmer) is a Chinese variation of the MiG-19 (Which had the same reporting name). The MiG-19 had a short service life, but China liked the aircraft's agility and powerful cannons, so they took it to use for their own. The aircraft was designed to be disposable, intended to only be operated for approximately 100 hours (or 100 sorties) before needing an overhaul. It was retired in the late 1990s. There is no model known as the "6Jin"; a possible explanation for this is that it is a mistranslation of "J-6 Xin", a possible designation for the J-6III model. The J-6III is an advanced version of the J-6A, with improved radome location. This aircraft only appears in Airforce Delta Strike, where it is usable by Rick Campbell.
It's literally just the MiG-19PFM. Same design in more or less all aspects; long swept wings, single vertical stabilizer, holed-nose air intake, twin engine... More or less the same design on the surface.
A very mediocre craft. To be totally fair, it's superior to the aircraft it's based on, at least... But that says literally nothing because the MiG-19PFM was bottom of the barrel. This merely brushes against the bottom. It has guided weapons and vulcans, but the stats are just... Mediocre, and can't compare to the Lightning F6 you already have by default. Bleh.
Compared to the MiG-19PFM, this aircraft, aside from having vulcans and missiles, only has an increase in anti air and anti ground. And that's most likely only because of the missiles and vulcans this aircraft has as opposed to the rockets of the MiG-19PFM. Yeah.
