Default Mig-15 Hope for Campaign/Missions

Hey everyone,
I am seriously thinking about buying the MiG-15 (I hope to buy a real one eventually!), but I was wondering if it was worth it(thinking about it before the sale ends on the 23). No doubt the module itself is amazing, but considering this Module is fully released now and there is still an abysmal lack of content (campaigns, missions, no pilot) is it really worth it. Is there more of a future for this aircraft, because in my opinion not having a campaign available with it and a lack of mission really hinders what you can actually do with the module. If not I think I am going to get the Fishbed. I really want to get this module but there just has to be more to it, there simply is a lack of content. Does anyone know if BST has said anything about a campaign for the F-86/MiG-15? I can't believe that they would give the Hip a campaign but not some of the most iconic jet fighters of history!

Just looking for some real world advice and opinions!

Hi Frixon,
They released a campaign separately for the MiG-15 and F-86 called Museum Relic. I think you can use one plane or the other.

But you have to purchase it additionally, check the DCS website, under campaigns.

Keeping in mind the unfitting timeframe of the Mig with the available maps, I totally understand that there is no campaign from BST. Makes no sense until a 1950 map is available.

The Museum Relic campaign is just purely fantastic. One of the best out there for DCS. I think it's worth getting the MiG-15 and F-86F just for it.
At this moment both planes are needed to play the campaign but due to recent news this will change though the timeline is not known at the moment.

The map would be nice but lack of it isn't the main problem. The bigger issue is lack of the units from the era. Furthermore those few that are available at the moment are in some cases not even fully functional - for instance the Bear bomber not being able to drop bombs.
In result creating interesting and engaging missions for Sabre and Fagot is extremely difficult. I would assume that's the reason that more or less there is almost close to no content in terms of single player and multiplier missions. It's a pity but unfortunately this is the situation - after getting the modules and enjoying learning time there is close to nothing out there.
On the other hand those are yet another reasons for which all the great work with Museum Relic campaign can be appreciated.

Hi frixon28, there is a pilot-body that can be switched on or off. MiG-15bis is a very well made module, but is lacking a bit in content atm. I would say the most "complete" packages are A10C, BS2, FC3 and the MiG-21bis. You know, It is what it is. If singleplayer content is more important to you, more important than flying the module of your favourite aircraft in the whole wide world... have a look at my suggestions. If you can make do with DLC campaigns, user made missions etc. the MiG-15bis is not a bad choice.

MiG-21bis is a great module, for sure worth getting into but as for the SP stock campaign... well just to say that it's probably better to get into it when another options of flying MiG-21bis have run out.

The current Caucasus map is actually not all that inappropriate for the MiG-15bis. If you squint a little and ignore that it's a few decades too modern, there was a number of PVO squadrons operating MiG-15s in the 60s in current day Georgia (look up "14th Air Defence Corps "or "14-й корпус ПВО"). As others said, it's more about the lack of units.

Hey everyone thanks for all the replies!,
Thanks for clarifying that the MiG-15 does include the pilot model, I posted too soon and a review I was watching later on showed it off so I apologize sincerely for not looking into that more. I should have mentioned that I was aware of the Museum Relic Campaign, however I can only afford to buy a single module. What I really meant to ask is there any speculation/news/conspiracy theories about if BST will eventually be releasing a campaign. I just really wish BST will be adding more content to the Fagot/Sabre before they try to release another module.
Thanks for the help and time.

I'm not aware of any official declarations or even hints from the developers that the MiG-15bis module will in the future come with a campaign. As for speculations... don't base your purchase decisions on speculations . As far as content goes, the MiG-21 module has more of it. It's also a more complex aircraft with a wider array of weapons and systems to play around with. The 15bis OTOH is more bug free at the moment.

BTW, in case you haven't played the Mi-8 campaign you mentioned in the first post - give it a go. It's actually quite interesting and fun.

The MiG-15 is a well made module. I enjoy flying it, and do so quite a bit. For the price, I don't see how you could go wrong. :-)
