Thumbs up Poll: What are the most enjoyable of these fully-detailed modules in multiplayer?

Before commenting things like "the MiG is awful in multiplayer cause it gets blown out of the water by Gen IV fighters" bear in mind that there are popular servers restricting the generation (For example, the Cold War server only supports MiG 21s and F-5Es for main fighter aircraft)

Title pretty much sums it up. What's your favorite, and why?

EDIT 2-23-18
Question #2: I really want to get in on those Cold War servers with a fighter, so F-5E or MiG-21bis?

Question #3: Will the Mirage even be worth the money with the F-18 coming out soon?

Now if there is a champion of bias, let it be me.

The A-10C in multiplayer really comes alive for me because of it's datalink capabilities.

It's just so easy to be lazy! Find a target, send it to -2, kick your feet up and watch somebody else blow it up for you.

Jokes aside. The sheer poundage of ordnance a flight of pigs can deliver boggles my mind sometimes. It's tons of fun to get a flight of A-10s low over a target area, running gun passes in trail.

Add a player JTAC in a danger close situation on the ground, and you'll have one of the best and most immersive experiences you can get from DCS.

The same above can be said of the Ka50, a four ship of Kamovs is mp at its typical best. Plus with the addition of 2.5 terrain it just got multiplied.

Harrier is... useless

here comes the hate I can give my reasoning as well, but i am pretty sure no one will listen to it.

there are a lot of good modules out there. It depends on what do you want to do.

Helicopters can be awesome, as they have a vital role in transporting. The huey is legendary, but with its current EGT limites, I believe that the Mi-8 is a more capable helicopter, more powerful and thus enjoyable.

If you wanna blow stuff up and fly a helicopter the Ka-50 can be extremely dangerous.... tho it might be hard to understand at first (or forever in my case)

The F-5 is a really cool, small, light, simple and easy jet to fly. Very enjoyable. A lot of BFM goes with it, which is always fun. It can do some multi-role if you team up with other people.

The MiG-15 can be enjoyable, but compared to the upgraded sabre we have, it lacks performance. If you are a hardcore BFM pilot, this won't stop you.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Viggen and surely it is a well made module (as it is from Heatblur), but for me it just doesn't seem to fit the DCS scene much. It definitely has advantages, but sometimes it just seems too much work for nothing.

A lot of mixed stories I've heard about the Mirage.... Seems like a good plane, but not so well done.... I guess RAZBAM tend to have a buggy modules reputation, but I don't own it, so don't quote me on that.

The MiG-21 is a legend as well, but I believe that after some internal drama with the 3rd party it has been left a bit behind and developed some issues. From what I've heard it used to be a solid, enjoyable module, not so much now. Although, the recent activities of the developer bring hope to return it to former glory.

It really depends as well, on which side of the wall do you want to be

The A-10 is a good, capable aircraft, can be very rewarding. Don't get scared by people saying it is too hard.... it is not.

I base my module purchasing decision on the time frame (era of the aircraft) and its capabilities, after all at the end of the day you only fly a single module at a time, so I prefer to be the most efficient at which ever task you want to accomplish. If you have spare money and a lot of free time you can get em all and enjoy them as you see ^.^

Last night in the A-10C, I flew over 110nm to the AO, cleared the last units there, cleared all the SAMs and some AAA on the next objective, laser spotted for Harriers and gunned the last target in that AO as well. All this with a 60% fuel start. A harrier can never do that. Yeah, it might have taken me twice the time to get there compared to a harrier, but so what, if all I can do in a harrier is shoot 4 mavericks (2 of them hit a tree xD) and go home, because I am out of fuel (good thing there are FARPs and tankers near by or you would have never made it with a Harrier)

I think there's a place for a three ship Viggen strike on an important strategic target that softens it up for an assault by Ka-50s and Hueys carrying infantry.
