RAZBAM DCS: MiG-19 cockpit familiarization video up

Baltic Dragon’s hard work on RAZBAM’s DCS: MiG-19 first training video, is on full display today with the DCS: MiG-19P cockpit familiarization video.

Training with flare

Learning all of the displays, switches, buttons and controls in an aircraft cockpit is essential for real and virtual pilots but it is typically a dry exercise. Baltic Dragon and RAZBAM have done their best to make this a little more….thematic, even if the subject matter remains dry. This is thanks to some good writing and scripting and an English language voice over with a reasonably decent Russian accent.

Check out the video and see what you think of the MiG-19P and the first full training video on the MiG-19.

    Looking forward to the Mig-19 as well as your reviews of it. It’s got such a classic style to it.

    I don’t understand why people complain about the accent. If fits the aircraft and I’d prefer that to a full russian speech with subs.

    Great job fom Baltic Dragon as always. I’m looking forward to play the harrier training missions.

      I don’t see either why anyone would complain, the accent sounds perfect (I just love it!), and the English is perfectly understandable. The mission seems well done enough, having a separate cockpit familiarisation (or “familisation”, as our Russian friend says :D) is a good idea, it shows everything and doesn’t try to mix that with a cold start mission.

      I would perhaps get rid of all those space pauses (and I hope the beeps are only for the video! They are utterly irritating).

      I’m not a specialist, but if I understand well and by looking that up, it’s a regular -P all-weather interceptor model, not an early production. Those came with the NR-30 and only 70 rounds, which is probably not much, but very punchy!

      It must have been a laborious task for Razbam to gather the exact specifications, by browsing Yefim Gordon’s “Mikoyan MiG-19” book, I see there are more than 100 pages on the different soviet variants, and that’s not even including the exported versions! Those specifications varied with time, too.

    I can’t resist posting the link to this old MiG-19 video 😉 It’s Russian-speaking, but with the theme of Star Wars as background music, which I found priceless!

    You have to see Baltic Dragon’s answer to the accent issue in the new training video, it’s worth it 😀

    Well done!

      I laughed at that! It’s a great way to tackle that issue with a sense of humour.
