Default Kursant Campaign - English?

I've heard the campaign is great, but before I buy a couple questions....

Does the instructor speak english?

Are the units measured in the proper feet, nautical miles, etc? Does this match the default cockpit units for speed and altitude?

I think the L-39 flies like the gem of the ED collection, but the english subtitles to russian voice training missions are unacceptable.

In addition to the above, you can enable the English cockpit and still use the metric gauges:

From my brief experience with 'Kursant' so far, the metric gauges are a must. This way you can have your cake and eat it too as far as the cockpit goes.

You can use the English cockpit but instruments will need to be metric to match the campaign's instruction.

DCS>Options>Gameplay

• Avionics Language = English
• Units = Metric

The campaign uses English, DCS's default ATC will use Russian, as it's a Russian aircraft flying from a Russian AB.

Training missions of the L-39 (not the Kursant Campaign) are indeed in full Russian and I feel there are completely immersive, even if I need to read every text.

Just bought the L39 and Kursant campaign after watching some videos. It definitely seems like good quality stuff.

Yes

The units are imperial to match the plane's avionics. In the first mission, the briefing tells you to convert to imperial (km, kmh, meters).

there is no Russian subtitling. Pure English, voice and subs.

Its a great campaign. Buy it.
