Not that I disagree, but you can also fight the P-51 and the B-52 as contemporary aircraft.


With some imagination you can fight B-17's as well, which is great fun in my opinion.


If you like a challenge you can dogfight most cold war era fighters. The MiG-15 stayed in service for a very long time in some airforces....

Also, you can resort to using User's Mods, like the B-29, the C-47, etc; to flesh out the missions background, like I did on this set of Missions for the MiG-15:

As far as Jets go, i own mig21,mig19 and now the mig15.
I fly with ffb and can tell you .....what a blast to fly. For me, with ffb its the most difficult to fly but really rewarding.The Mig19 feels like nothing compared to the 15.
Get it!!!

Absolutely worth it, this thing is pure joy to fly... and that 37mm cannon alone is enough reason to get it. Try to be the underdog and go hunting some ground units with that, including Shilkas and Strelas. Just be fast, but not too fast. Very rewarding. Every single impact of those gun shells on something on the ground will be reflected in your face by a very big grin for sure.

Despite the lack of a proper Korea environment, I can't imagine owning DCS World without the MiG-15 and F-86. Two iconic aircraft whose main claim to fame was fighting each other at high altitudes. Realistic or not, DCS World takes two airplanes that are very similar on paper and makes each one a unique, enjoyable experience.

It's a fantastic module and as said before, all it lacks is a Korean map to go with it.

Yeah for sure it is one of the most accurate models in DCS with a few quirks thrown in for extra measure. The only thing that lets the mig 15 down is the lack of player base and a map of the Korean war/era

Shame there is not a map for it or historically compatible assets. It would surely be a buy for me.

Indeed, assets is what is needed. Otherwise a fantastic module!
