Default Suggestion for a simple aircraft: J-5

In a previous post, it was mentioned that Deka was considering a simple module. We need the J-5/Mig-17 for US/Vietnam war scenarios, and Deka Ironwork is just the team to make it!

I hope you'll consider it.

OMG yes, I kept thinking Q-5/J-8 but this would be perfect omglol I feel like a school girl again This would be amazing

There are so many versions also! IIRC I think China went to town making variants of the PF?

I personally think we have enough of those ancient MIGs now. I hope Deka make something a bit more advanced than MIG 21. Something closer to F-14 when we talk about systems.

An A-4 would be great. Not too complicated and it was in service all around the world. I know there is a great community mod, but a full module would be even better. What the mod is simply missing is a working radio (no ATC, no AAR, no communication to the wingmen).

I never had an interest in 1960's or 1970's aircraft- until I broke down and bought the F-5E. Then I flew on a multiplayer server against players flying Mig-21Bis at low altitude through the canyons between Sochi and Sukhumi. Now, the visual jet combat of that era, with limited missile effectiveness, is my absolute favorite. I've since bought the F-86, Mig-15, Mig-21Bis, and Mig-19, and I want more variety in aircraft there.

Wait, you mean actual dogfighting/BFM is "fun"? I never would have guessed

Now I'm off to lob some fox3's at a blip and run away....

And yeah J-5/mig-17 would be nice, but more 60's and 70's blue jets would be cool too. I mean we have a bit too modern F5 and F86 and thats it for now. Cool options are the F4 (though ED probably won't let that go), but certainly the F-104 was widely used, F100, EE lightning, mirage III, super etnard, J35 draken. Would all be cool choices.

For the Red side of the house, I'd rather see some red strikers, Su-17/20/22 would probably be the most widely used one.

Yeap. Dogfighting with guns and rear aspect old heat seekers is the most exciting. Like Vietnam, 6 days war, Jim Kippur.

Again has no real counterpart for mission building, a thing that developers should be far more interested in than just developing some new plane. For older timeframes we still didn't have many western counterparts to soviet MiGs, so that would be an idea, like a F-4, F-100, F-104 or F-105, there we only got the F-8J in development. On the other hand some older ground attack plane could be also interesting, but there we already have the A-7E now in development, maybe some eastern counterpart for that would be also interesting, like a Su-17/22, MiG-27 (both of them could also be used for fast SEAD with Kh-58U, thats maybe also interesting because the Su-25 isnt the best for that) or even a Q-5. Or, with more development, devlop something entirely new, a recon aircraft (the Viggen has some things that it can do in that role, so its possible) or a dedicated plane for electronic warfare. These things could be very interesting for missions.
