Default Wouldn't be too hard to do a Mig-17, would it?

Mig-17 is very similar to Mig-15. It's flight model would be different, engine management would be different, and the gunsight more advanced, but would it take as long as a typical module to do? Belsimtek seems to release modules at a good consistent pace, and I would love to see the early jets expanded into a more relevant era.

Since the flight model takes most of the time/effort, I would imagine that it would take pretty close to the same amount of time. Of course, since the public doesn't know how long the 15 was in development, any answer is actually meaningless.

I think Belsimtek said they would not do a MiG-17. I can't find the post though.

I think the question should be "Would anyone fork 60 $ for a MiG-17 when they already have the MiG-15?" instead of "Should Belsimtek develop a MiG-17?".

If a proper 'nam theatre existed, then I could see it.

I mean if we are talking about Mig17F with afterburners not the Mig17A which shared the same engine as the 15bis.

then yes i would shill out 60 bucks for it.....

that being said, the Mig17 also fits in other scenarios, such as the Taiwan straight crisis of 1958, as well as middle eastern conflicts, not just Vietnam.

not an ideal comparson as there is much bigger difference between the F100D to the F86F. would be like comparing Mig19 to the Mig15bis.

Mig17 at the end of the day is still a transonic swept winged fighter of 1st generation, while F100 being a supersonic in level flight design falling under the second generation. MIg19 would ultmatley be a closest Russian counterpart to the F100.

Mig-17 had much better flight performance, even without afterburner. I would definetely buy a Mig-19 though, perhaps more so then a 17. Mig-19 I initially viewed as an inferior Mig-21, which is kind of is, but when paired with fighters of its era, it is a prime contestant. Mig-19 is also interesting as its the first Russian supersonic fighter, that actually retains the swept wing design, which would make it interesting to fly. Mig-19 is also interesting because it has two engines, which wasn't something mig didn't go back to until the Foxbat.
