Let the rampant speculation on the DCS: MiG-19’s release date end and instead let loose with the rampant speculation on a new Eagle Dynamics mystery feature all coming this Friday. Say what now? Allow me to explain.
MiG-19 ‘Farmer’ ready for release
Though delayed by about four weeks, the DCS: MiG-19 by RAZBAM is now ready for release and it’s coming this Friday along with a beta patch update for DCS World. Folks on the stable release schedule will need to wait until the next patch to get the module.
The DCS: MiG-19 is a DCS World level full fidelity simulation of the MiG-19P ‘Farmer’ by RAZBAM, a third party DCS World developer well known for their M-2000C and AV-8B modules. The MiG-19P has a slightly different release philosophy than their previous modules as the MiG-19 is intended to come feature and content complete.
One thing not included in this release is a proposed free addition of the MiG-19S – a light-weight version of the same aircraft with no radar and no guided missiles. RAZBAM has all but confirmed that this will come later.
Focusing more immediately, the DCS: MiG-19 after a short wait is now ready for release according to Eagle Dynamics and that’s extremely exciting.

The announcement for the MiG-19 contains a tasty morsel of speculative bait designed to keep everyone guessing for the next couple of days.
Dear pilots,Matt Wagner on the DCS World Forums
With the DCS: MiG-19P Farmer by RAZBAM Simulations to be released this Friday, 1 March 2019, we will be shifting our Open Beta release to Friday this week instead of the usual Wednesday. A benefit of this is that we’ll now have time to also release an eagerly awaited new Eagle Dynamics feature! Let the speculation run wild!

As an avid speculator and a person who likes to read between the lines… I have no idea on what this is. Is it something serious like the Dedicated Server? It seems too broad to be something related to a specific module (and the Hornet’s next set of features are well covered and there’s no point in any mystery around that). Might it be the civil flight traffic that was talked about as a future addition? Unlikely but maybe. ATC updates? Too important for a fun speculative announcement like this. Could it be the long awaited cows getting added to DCS World?
I’m going with Cows.
We’ll see this “feature addition” and the DCS: MiG-19 in a beta patch on Friday!
