Being a Mig-15 fan and having hundreds of sim hours on it I would buy the Mig-17 in a flash.

I hate to say this but the RP-5 in the MiG-19 is just a little bigger and better than the RP-1 in the MiG-17PF!

Hate to say it but RP22M radar in Mig21BIS is better than RP5 on the mig19,

TBH generally as is every fighter that succeeded an earlier one.

But thats besides the point. not all dont fly A/C for the most potent capabilities, but for historical significance and or periodical scenarios. Mig17 is an important step in evlotion before the Mig19, and has use immediate period post Korean war. And FYI not all have radars. Some like myelf would rather fly radarless versions. and get extra perforamnce. Early radars are not as such a dominant sensor as they are in more modern times where they are basically a must have feature.

Yes, I would like to purchase a MiG-17 in a heartbeat too no matter which variant it is.

But if I have to pick a version, I would prefer a version that has either a radar, or missiles, or both, since the MiG-15 we have is the MiG-15bis, a version without missile or radar. If I have to pick one, I pick missile. This way, we can have an aircraft that is properly equipped to deal with missile equipped F-86 and F-100 if DCS ever decide to make.
