Cold War continues

Air Power - The Cold War
This week I continue the look at Air Power: The Cold War (2000), an add-on for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator (1998) and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002.

The Mis-named MiG

Warsaw Pact aircraft MiG-15 'Fagot' in 'Air Power: The Cold War'

The MiG-15 'Fagot' out-turned, out-climbed and had a higher service ceiling than the North American F-86K Sabre. It's original NATO reporting name was "Falcon" - it would be interesting to get the story behind changing the name from that of a 'Bird of Prey' to a 'block of wood' ! - MiG-15 'Fagot'
