Default How do you all think the MIG-15 Performs?

I just wanted to ask how everyone thinks the MIG performs in DCS.. It seems like most people are satisfied with the gunnery, handling characteristics and power.


I've flown it myself but not a lot as I'm a huge Sabre fan being Canadian.. I've decided to try and use the 15 a but more so I can go OPFOR when there are too many Sabre pilots.


Are you all satisfied with the performance? anything need changing or tweaking?

It's brilliant, one of the most interesting aircraft in the sim at the moment. It enjoys a few handy advantages over the Sabre at low altitude and the guns are plainly superiour

The gyro sight actually works very well too which is nice and satisfying to use at half decent ranges though of course you're better of engaging at very close range.

The roll rate suffers very badly at high speed and the engine is more than powerful enough to make the thing fly too fast to control even in level flight which is great fun

It is very good. Flight model has changed from the feel of it since I flew it a lot. Big gun is mega dakka and always brings smile when you blow something in half

I've had the module for about 3 years and have flown it a bit. awesome aircraft. I've just been honing my skills with it again.


But, there is just something about the Sabre... it handles like a stiletto compared to the MiG. Both are just tons of fun to fly... Really helps improve dogfighting skills in any aircraft.

One of the reasons I bought MiG-15bis.

I love the mig 15 and imo one of the best done modules in DCS. You have to take your time with her and learn what you can get away with while flying it in combat. I originally bought the sabre first then picked up the mig15 out of curiosity, but after flying her a couple of times I preferred it. It's just better in different ways like the sabre is better in different ways to the mig

It is a great module! Perhaps a bit too forgiving at times compared to real life. Amazing climb performance, heavy hitting cannons...

F-86F has more gizmos to play around with, but MiG-15bis feels more accurate in my opinion.

I enjoy it, very easy and forgiving to fly - wish it could carry more ammo for the main cannon
