I enjoy it. It smokes and burns nicely when I kill it with my "inferior" 50 cals.

Yeah it's pretty much perfect. Wish they would update the canopy reflections though as they do seem to be a bit much

I love the MiG-15. My biggest problem is low velocity guns, which makes gunnery difficult (for me at least). I do believe that's accurate, so nothing to complain about. It just takes practice...

I feel that the MiG is one of the better, more complete simulations available in DCS World with the exception of the damage model which we can hope is updated after the WWII modules get the update.

Yeah agreed. It's just a shame that it and the Sabre aren't more popular

If only we had a map for the war in Korea and a complimentary set of aircraft, including carrier operations. Suddenly I think things could light up big time then, but DCS doesn't seem to want to be that kind of combat simulator. That's why I don't do much DCS, because it is not 'joined up' that way. I like the historic aspect of combat simulation flying, so I tend to lean more towards combat flight simulation that enables more historically based scenarios. I love the Mig-15 in DCS

Happy landings,

Talisman

Right, and carrier ops is there too. We did all kinds of gymnastics with the code and rendering in CFS3 to make carriers work with an imported Korea map but the terrain type was hard coded so it was always one step away from "reality."

Imagine what could happen if DCS added the map? Corsairs, yes! Skyraiders? Wow! And for The Bridges at Toko Ri fans... the Skyraiders actually hit the bridges. Panthers flew CAP. Sabres already have rockets too
