Default How complete/good is it?

I have this module on my watchlist, but since I personally wasn't happy at all with the quality that RAZBAM has provided me in the Mirage and Harrier, it stayed on my watchlist.

Now, seeing no more changelogs since November, how far is this module now?

Does it have a lot of bugs?

It works pretty well IMO. The ADF not changing frequency smoothly is the only thing that really bugs me. The MiG-19S is coming, but I’m beginning to think it will just be AI. It’s a pretty simple plane, the last update for it added the paint kit so looking forward to seeing some liveries

I found no bugs to speak of. It's an awesome module. The included training and campaign are fun, as well as the machine itself. Simple, stupidly powerful and very Soviet. I loved every minute I spent in it so far.

Not a lot, but what's troublesome is that the few that there are, are not taken care of ... these issues are what irk me the most:

- No Failures Tab: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=242303

- Bugged ADF Tuning: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=242058

- Bugged Gunsight keybinds: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=242229

- Bugged Weapon select keybinds: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=235639

While these may seem like simple things to fix, the months have passed by and no fix has been made. I was so discouraged by this situation, that I left unfinished a set of practice missions that I was editing for the Farmer:

It is sad, as I liked the Farmer in every other aspect and I love Cold War aircrafts.

Sounds good to me. The flight model... Might be little more docile than the real article.

If you never have to change NDB Chanels mid flight or don't use them to navigate it doesen't really matter. But using the scroll wheel to move trough the Frequency range while looking down in a Plane without Autopilot really isn't a pleasent expirience.

That is the only thing which bothers me too, other than that it is a really great module to fly which takes finesse and careful planning when dogfighting due to G-limitations of ordnance.
I have since bought the Mig21 and i prefer the 19 hands down though it is a much newer module.
If bought during a sale i dont think you would regret it especially not with the free BD campaign which comes with it
