Almost simultaneously with the F-86 close the circuit fighters with swept wings were built in France by the firm Dassault M. D. 450 (1949) in the USSR – MiG-15 (1947) and La-15 (1948). All these machines were, in fact, twins, and aerodynamic configuration, and technical characteristics. Such a coincidence, apparently, was due to the level of development of Sciences such as aerodynamics, strength theory, thermodynamics and gas dynamics.
 
In 1950 started the Korean war, and that jet F-86 SABRE became the main American fighters during these hostilities. As a rule, they were accompanied by groups of bombers b-29 Superfortress in raids on Pyongyang and other North Korean cities.
