Source on the bis being too late for combat? Because a quick glance online says that the Mig-15bis was introduced early 1950 and saw a a large amount of combat in Korea. According to the source below the model the Chinese received was the bis model, and it even saw action at the tail end of the Chinese Civil War, pre-dating outbreak of the Korean conflict.

I have also heard frequently from other DCS folk that the bis is in fact a historically correct model, it's our particular Sabre that's too late for Korea (as is made obvious by the presence of GAR-8 missiles).

The third F-86F production batch was the NA-191, built in California under a contract approved on August 5, 1952. These were delivered as F-86F-30-NA (52-4305 through -5163) and as F-86F-35-NA (52-5164 through -5271). Deliveries began in October of 1952 and were completed by May of 1954. 967 were built

As for the Mig-15 vs Mig-15bis I will need to find the source but I believe that the 'bis' was first rolled out to the Soviet squadrons and priority didn't shift to Korea until the later F-86F's began to arrive and to really dominate the sky's. By the time they arrived the truce was in place. I'll see what I can find when I get home.
