Yes.

Or a Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin. Or maybe a Boeing AH-6.

There were a lot of stupid tactics brought up for all kind of aircraft. Most of them propably for really desperate situations. Though that does not mean they were or would have ever been actually employed.

Want to fly in nice dog fight? Get a WW2 plane.
Want to play "tablet" with dots? Get a most modern fighter.
Want to get something between, closer to Top Gun? 60-80's etc it's closer to that.

That is what makes MiG-21Bis so nice that it is limited. And what F-4 brings to other side.

And why MiG-23MLA will be nice thing to fly....

Its not only air to air that is more interesting, but also all air to ground stuff. Most of the work was still dumb bombs or primitve missiles, mostly command guided.

I tend to agree on A2G stuff mostly for strike and sead missions, it is really just look at that shitty display and press the button. CAS however is quite nice even with modern smart bombs and missiles, especially if you have a good human JTAC and good scenario to play in. But AI JТAC, A-10C and VAICOM also provide very interesting opportunities.

Aside of that I also find bombing with old stuff without CCIP solution much more involving and challenging. Also shooting rockets with Mi-8/Uh1 is very rewarding. Unguided rockets and gun runs are so fun, I really miss them in modern DCS scenarios.

Yeah, the F4 is my most anticipated module in DCS, finally a true cold war era competitor to all the migs we already have. Even if they do the later 80's era F4E its still a hell of alot closer than anything we currently have.

F-14 especially A is cold war too.

If the 14A has the same unrealistically accurate missiles, then cold war servers are unlikely to be very popular
