This trailer features in-game footage from an early build of DCS: P-51D Mustang, the upcoming World War II aerial combat game from Digital Combat Simulator. Here's a bit on what to expect from the game: "The DCS: P-51D Mustang offers both highly-detailed simulation and easy-to-play "game" mode options for both hardcore and casual gamers. When in simulation mode, this is the most authentic simulation of the P-51D Mustang that has ever been done for the PC."

Did you actually watch the video? They appeared to be engaging German aircraft. I also thought this was odd (a WW2 aircraft placed into a modern setting) but it looks as though they're at least providing enemy aircraft to dogfight.
No, I'm pretty sure those are just other P-51's they're fighting. Certainly there is nothing but P-51's in there now, and last I heard there were no plans to add any contemporary opponents. Surely modders will take care of it eventually though. There are already screenshots of modded 190's floating around (likely P-51D physics with 190 models, but that's better than nothing).
It is indeed a lovely simulation of the P-51D, but there isn't a whole lot to do with it yet.
They could add still-inservice-Vietnam-era soviet fighters. The P-51 was still in service then, at least according to one Hollywood depiction. That could make for some very interesting cold-war era cannon combat..
