Mr. Lin
While you are busy translating the writing how about working up a GWS ducted fan MIG. And a ducted fan Sabre as well! Those would be fun!

Sorry that I can not read that simplized Chinese was used only in RED China.

In Taiwan that we use traditional Chinese, some different to that.

I feel those are some caligraphic type simplified chinese chars.

Even from my limited knowledge of chinese characters I can tell that these are definitely NOT chinese related characters.

Take a look at

My best guess is Bengali (under Syllabic section
, that is India)....

I think it makes sense. India has a large number of
Soviet Migs... known as "flying coffins"...

I heard crash rate is about 2 per month...

I also ran search at Google... but could not find the matching
emblem. The star sugests that it is from a socialist country...

The insignia are definately Red Chinese.

I learned that the writing on the side are NOT Chinese charaters. The decal manufacturer used imitation characters; apparently there is another decal set where the characters are accurate to the prototype.

Hmm. I am getting tired of those red wings anyway. Myybe I'll make a Russian version with the red stars.... C'est la vie.
