When you do start flying the 19 MattE let me know and I can fly with you.  I already have a startup video made.  And I'm about done studying the 14 (as far as the pilot seat).  I know how to use the systems, now it is just as matter of actually using it (and landing it) to best effect.

What Clutter said, I bought the Mig 19 with the Bonus points the rest were on sale so I could not use Bonus points on them.

Get the Harrier.  F-5 is fun but the Harrier is COOL!

thanx..

I kind of look at things that fil gaps where I need aircraft for an era, or time and place.. F-5 would have fill a gap...
I could use the Mirage although the two are not even close to the same... but flew in the same time period.... and the Mirage is 3x larger than the F-5.
we are suppose to get an (FC3) next (FC4) that will have an F-5 (but Flaming Cliffs style F/M.) No one knows when.

although the FA-18C would be for SEAD, right now, kind of flaky...
The Harrier, multi-role...

one thing I never saw when working with the British Harriers,,, they didn't have a balance issue, but then again they never flew around me unbalanced... the racks were either completely full or empty...
another thing I wondered.. I would put de-mineralized water in the KC-135 tankers,, but never had to put water in the harriers... so, they either didn't need the water. Also climate makes a huge difference in the engine thrust, and the heat in hot climates or humid and heat made the need for more water injection. Most of the time in Germany there are not many times and months when there is the heat factor for lift. But, when they are deployed in places where they need more lift.

I looked on Youtube and could not find much on using A-A. Not sure how capable it is for fighting off an attacker. Radar, lock, fire, etc.

the Ka-50 cockpit is really screwed up, from several patches.. it is a huge shame that you will not see how nice it is until they quit jerking off and fix it... it is very nice when they have it all working correctly.
