Loving the MiG-15bis...

Ive been out of the flight sim scene for a few years now. Last year I became very ill and spent a year in a hospital. I had a pressure sore over my tailbone that went sepsis and it almost killed me. It took a year of wound care in a long term facility before I was healed. Needless to say I very far behind on my modules. I also spent the last 25 years as a OTR Truck driver and that really cut into my flying and mission making time.

 

I decided to start with the MiG-15bis and I have to say I am in love with that little Airplane. It's amazing what the Soviets could do on so little. I have flown the F86F a bit and compared to the MiG its much more sophisticated. That Soviet philosophy is so apparent in the 15, just like with tanks ...build them tough, build lots of them, and build them at low cost. That being said I love flying it. Belsimtek you did a wonderful job.

 

The way I get to know an airplane is to fly it obviously. I have been exploring the NTTR map in the MiG. Getting to know cruising speeds, engine management, and fuel consumption. The flights are very long and I really love the work DCS put into the map. A few days ago I cruised over the NE part of NTTR and did some laps around Hawthorne. I have two friends that grew up there. DCS really nailed it. Walker lake and the truck stop coming into Hawthorne from the North. I even think I see my buddies house. Today I cruised out of Tonopah. took a hard left and cruised along the California border and down into Pahrump, then into Vegas landing at Nellis. Burned almost a full tank and what a beautiful sunset. Once again DCS ....awesome job on the NTTR Map.

 

I have started creating missions for the MiG-15bis in 1.5. Been out of the Mission Editor for awhile and getting it all down again. I have a real nice B-29 intercept mission going but I haven't got the bombers and the escorts to my liking yet. ...its a furball though!

 

Some Shots of today's flight....Love that MiG baby!

Nice story ... hope you will share the B-29 mission when you have it polished enough :) as the MiG surely can use all the missions it can get.

Best regards.

I agree, it's a nice little plane, great fun to fly! :thumbup:

 

Hope you're doing OK now.

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, the Mig-15 is absolutely brilliant! Glad you are enjoying it too.

I only wish there were well populated Mig-15 vs Sabre MP servers out there.

 

 

Happy landings,

Working on it. I love the Sabre vs. Mig-15 match-up. If only the last few updates hadn't wrecked my scripts...

Indeed a fun Module to fly. The MiG-15 needs a little more love.

You might want to try museum relic campaign, in addition of course to your WIP content which I trust we shall enjoy?

AWAITING ED NEW DAMAGE MODEL IMPLEMENTATION FOR WW2 BIRDS

 

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.
