Out of aircraft that aren't in DCS yet, most of the Century Series, but especially the Starfighter. Also the Draken and the Su-7 Fitter.

The heavy weight championship of 1964-

Su-7 vs F-105

Phantom,

Draken,

first MiG-25P without look down radar became operational at the very end of 1960s so this one for sure

 

And at this moment I realized I would take any plane from this era, F-105, A-5, A-6, F-8, A-7, MiG-23, Su-7, Mirage III, Tu-22, B-58, F-111...

MiG-21F-13 - it's so pretty. Su-7, Phantom obviously, MiG-23 obviously. I'm on the fence when it comes to the MiG-25, all versions of it were very specialised, but at the same time effective in their little niches.

MiG-25 was pretty much used as a usual fighter. And effectively

Oh, absolutely, it is very much underrated as a fighter. Thing is, the P/PD variant could do pretty much only A-A. The recon/bomber variants on the other hand weren't good at it at all, and quite limited in their selection and weight of A-G ordnance.

So this is the thread I should have posted the F-102A, F-106A. Didn't notice the Korean War tag there.

 

Also MiG-25. That plane would be nice to have in order to "jump" over the opposition and blow up their Awacs with 4xR-40s jump over them again and land to get more R-40s. Might be risky in case of an opposing F-15 amraam carrier on the way. But still it would be an enjoyable enterprise.

 

Then of course Draken, finnish forest dwelling variant naturally.

Buccaneers, Jag, and early FG.1 Phantom. Heaven.

Can't forget the choppers.

We need an F-5A with a complimenting CF-5A/ refueling probe complimenting it. 

 

The aircraft was prevalent on every continent, so it makes sense.

How about a F-5C it was an A with a USAF refueling receptacle

Sounds superficial. The F-5C was given a a2a refueling probe and modifications to fight corrosion. It was only used in South Vietnam.

 

I think you could use the F-5A to cover the -C as a supplement. But a dedicated -C would be pointless as it robs the biggest advantage the F-5A has going for it: it was used by so many countries, but the -C was not.

I was thinking both in the same module, since I was under the impression the fuel probe was the only difference.

Su-24MK

 

He asked about "Mid-Cold War / Viet Nam era planes (1955 -1975)"

 

"Su-24MK" entered production in 1988, 2 years before the end of the Cold War.

First basic variant Su-24 with "Puma" navigation system, "Orbita" computer and shorter fuselage entered service in 1975 after official trials.

 

That being said I would love to have Su-24M from late Cold War 1980s when it's mission was all weather low level penetration strike against NATO targets and forces in East Germany. Just Like Tornado IDS and F-111F for NATO.

In those days this kind of aircrafts still had their very important place and low level strike was considered dangerous yet still possible.

I am all about that F105. Any version is fun, D for that Vietnam canyon run feeling, hauling 6000lbs of bombs to a target. G for that old school weaselin, though most of the fun stuff in that version is probably classified still. But I just like those low level, fast bombers. So Aardvarks or Fencers are also good in my book.

  • F-4 Phantom II (namely M, S, E, K)
  • Harrier GR.3 (FRS.1 is just slightly too late, and if GR.3 is too late then the GR.1A)
  • F-104G Starfighter
  • MiG-23M
  • J 35F/D
  • A 32A/J 32
  • MiG-21bis
  • Tu-16 (as AI; preferably the initial basic bomber variant (Badger A), dedicated maritime strike (Tu-16K-10-26 'Badger C Mod.') and combined w/out RADAR (Tu-16KSR-2-5-11 'Badger G Mod.')
