Named after the Soviet design bureau of Mikoyan-Gurevich (abbreviated MiG). The YAK's were named after Yakovlev, and the LA's after Lavochkin.

If Spitfire fought against MiG 15 what will win?

I would almost consider this a dumb question. The MiG will most certainly out-maneuver, out-fly, and generally stomp the Spitfire. While the Spitfire was excellent for its time, it is no fighter jet.

What is a mig?

According to Wikipedia, a Mig-29 (the most commonly used mig currently) is "a 4th generation jet fighter aircraft designed for the air superiority role in the Soviet Union. Developed in the 1970s by the Mikoyan design bureau, it entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983, and remains in use by the Russian Air Force as well as in many other nations. NATO's reporting name for the MiG-29 is "Fulcrum", which was unofficially used by Soviet pilots in service.[1] It was developed to counter new American fighters such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the F/A-18 Hornet" (Wikipedia - Mikoyan MiG-29). "Mig" is a general name of the Russian fighter aircraft. It is a shortened name for the aircraft made by the Mikoyan company. However over the years, "Mig" would refer to the current aircraft that was used by the Russians. So a pilot in the Viet Nam War might say he shot down a Mig which would refer to a Mig 21 jet. Sources Cited "Mikoyan MiG-35." 14 Jun 2008 . The name "MiG" stems from Mikoyan Gurivich, the aircraft designers.
