Make sure you're using the G Limiter over-ride switch, if you abuse that enough you can turn-fight anything - and if you're not using it and had rocket pods on, you'dve been limited to 5Gs so would have had a massive turning circle.

In this game, the Mig-15 can go verticle with anything. It's broken.

The MiG was definitely tricky, but far from undefeatable. Caught be off guard the first time, but I still won the fight against both of them as your wingman gets shot almost instantly.

You out turn and out climb the MiG

This. Just don't bleed your E too quickly

Now I save my wingman all the times too

I haven't had any difficulty dogfighting against the Mig-15 and F-86. Something must be wrong with your technique.

Don't keep pulling and get slow just to face your opponent, unless both slow and in close and you want to pirouette around to get a shot or get in behind him. Most of the time you can control any fight with the AI in this jet, just keep your speed to 360 kts in the HUD, this is the best sustained turn rate of the F/A-18 in the light config, half fuel 2x AIM-9's etc.

tip..: many pilots in dcs end up in a never ending turn doing 360 turns after the enemy or likewise. dont go arround in a circle all the time in a dogfight, and as david oc write above then 360 knots of speed is a good speed in a dogfight.

I recommend watching some videos on youtube about dogfights and tips/tricks

I think its performance seems quite high, there is a problem in how the Mig15 dogfights as it has a never ending amount of energy. So its not a matter of how difficult it is to shoot the Mig15 down the question is, is that behaviour realistic?
