Cool. I tried out the ability to fly as a non-flight leader in a mission and much hilarity ensued from me heading to one end of the runway (that I always headed for) while the other three headed for the opposite. Exciting start. :smile:


The MiG-21bis waist gunners are gone, too.

I lost an activation when installing DCS 1.5 Beta for some reason for MiG-21? all other Aircraft were fine and I own 98% of them.

I had some weird issues with my MiG-21bis installation as well. None of the online fixes worked for me - I had to go into my registry and delete all folders that mentioned MiG-21bis. Once I did that, the product installed and activated fine. I lost an activation, but I still have plenty to spare and they grow back, too.
