Default First Outing in the MiG-15bis!

Hey guys!


Here is a new First Outing video in the MiG-15bis. First Outing is a series that I am trying to develop that will be about early experiences in aircraft that I am new to. First Outing could mean first engagement even in single player like it is in this case, or it could mean first time taking a ride in a multiplayer server, but the common theme is that it's when I am still relatively new to the aircraft. If you like the video drop a like and subscribe for more DCS and flight sim content.



Hope you guys enjoy!

Glad you liked her Shadepiece. I love her and imo its one of the best simulated modules in DCS and it baffles me why this and the Sabre arent more popular.

It is a bit trickier, but once you master it and fly her to her strengths it is lovely

Really good, especially for first time since you scored multiple sabre kills.

although i think you may have had easier time kill them if you uncaged the gyro sight

really helps in maneuvering shots, although its no lead computing gunsight

Not a chance!! The gyros always throw me off!! I'm not sure why, but I've just never felt comfortable behind one. I need to have a fixed reference to fly off of when in that situation or else I just second guess myself too much. Too many years behind a prop and static sight for me to adjust!

On paper, the F-86 and MiG-15 have very similar performance. But as modeled in DCS World, they fly very differently. I love dissimilar aircraft. It is fun to fly the same exact mission from both sides' cockpits. The MiG-15bis should be the superior aircraft, particularly due to its thrust-to-weight, but the ease with which the Sabre responds to control inputs makes it a lot easier to point at the enemy in a dogfight. I can win with either one, but I have an easier time flying the Sabre.

Propably because it's to Old and has the the systems of a late ww2 for the Modern Jet Pilotes and WW2 Warbird Pilotes don't really like to touch Jet's.

But as a Person that has only flown ww2 piston Simulators This was a perfect introduction and i will be happy to try out the Mig-19 to get even a step further in to those Hitech planes.

But even the Mig-15 is just such a joy to fly. Its like petting a Cat's belly. You better be ready for the inevatable bite.

Yeah true, and I am kinda the same as the Tomcat is as modern as I will probably go as I prefer the cold war stuff. But like you say they are very good trainer aircraft to learn other things.
