I have the 15, the 21 and the F-86. Somehow I prefer the MiGs even though the Sabre is a beautiful plane. The 15 in particular is my favorite, it's just complex enough it's a challenge to learn all the systems, redundancies, emergency procedures, etc. But it's not so complex it's overwhelming. I like the cockpit layout and visibility in the 15 far more than the Sabre and though its handling gets very sluggish at high mach where the Sabre doesn't as much, I find I can fly the MiG a lot more smoothly overall.

Interesting to read all these posts with the current sale on and these positive reports I'm very tempted to go for it.

One of the best module in my opinion, get it.

I got in a tangle in my F5 this evening with an all red Mig-15 and I ended up having to RTB due fuel. The Mig-15 is a very potent aircraft that was clear to me. Decision made, going to give it a try. Any of you guys who want to fly it multiplayer should have a look at the Cold War server it's really really good and all geared up for the older style of jets.

Well this is a problem some modules have sadly and ED refuses to change it because they think it's realistic - while it's not- Those reflections are completely static and independant of the lighting. Especially in VR this looks weird, but with TIR as well. I'd very much prefer real reflections instead of this.


Nevertheless flying this thing is awesome. Always keep grinning when I bust some SHORADs or ZSUs. Why waste Mavs when you can just thump them down with pride and a very loud cannon?

I'm currently enjoying it in the museum relic campaign. It's one of those things you always like coming back to. Like a good old puristic roadster in a racing game.

Still flying the Mig-15 it's a beauty. There's a new server called Cold War Pilots, have a search it's really really good and is all Mig=15 v F-86 action PvP and PvE action.

The MiG-15 was one of the first mods I got a few months ago, and I've flown it on and off. I found it hard to fly and particularly had to aim and shoot. So, I put it away ... until now.

Having picked up the Sabre in the recent sale, I got my fill of it (for now) and decided to give the Mig another try. There's an instant action dogfight mission in the Nevada batch - two Mig-15s against two Sabres. Merged with the Sabres, pulled up and over, and came down on one of the Sabres and blew it out of the sky. Up again, down.... and the second Sabre was gone. All this time, I had been trying to turn with the F86s, playing their game in the horizontal plane instead of using the vertical.

So, I just re-tried the Recon mission in the Black Sea missions set - two MiG-15s vs. three AI-controlled F-86s. This mission had been giving me such a hard time - could never get it completed. The default mission has the F86 AI set to random. This time I edited it set and set all three AI F86s to excellent. My stupid wingman got shot down in the first 30 seconds. So, now I'm up against three Sabres by my lonesome. Guess what - got all three of them. Yes, they are AI, not people, but for me this was an accomplishment - first time I got all three Sabres by myself (excellent AI at that). I need to get some more practice before I'm ready to go up against human opponents, but now that I'm learning how to fly the MiG correctly, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite DCS mods.
