Yes, having it for the Harrier and Viggen would be good, too.

Re: DCS: Supercarrier Finally Out

All of 2.5.6 was. It had been so long.
So for a brief shining moment, OB and stable are one. Until next week I guess.

Re: CW Lemoine flies the MiG-21

The Hornet was designed to outclass the 21 and 23, so it's not surprising that it does. The Harrier can fight enemy air, but it shouldn't. Not the NA variant we have, anyway. The 8Plus with AN/APG-66 and 120s, sure. The CONOPS for most of these planes was to have top cover of friendly fighters that ...

Re: Supercarrier, who has and does not have?

Yes, although it means again if you have people with the Su-33 but not SC, I think they only can use the old Kuz. That's now 5 carriers counting the Tarawa, and we have the Forrestal coming presumably for F-14 owners only.

Re: Aircraft Dog Fighting Characteristics

I am struggling with how the F-16 handles right now. I expected it to fly like a lighter Hornet, but it seems to fight me in changes to pitch and yaw. It's definitely lighter and climbs much better, but I need more time to get used to it. I haven't flown most of the red airplanes in ages aside from ...

Re: Division 2

Yes, Panzer and I have the main game but not NYC. I have the season pass, too, not sure about him.

I have 11 hrs in the game, expect his is about the same.

Re: Aircraft Dog Fighting Characteristics

The Hornet should perform better than we see it because of the DCS drag problem. This also has affected missiles and bombs and that's why they seem to perform so poorly. It's almost like the drag at altitude is the same as at sea level which is of course wrong, but even at SL it's too high. In a cle...

Re: Supercarrier, who has and does not have?

I have it. I couldn't pass it up for $25. Be aware that Supercarrier comes with a new Kuz (and Arleigh Burke) with new features for the 33. It's not like the SC is, but you now have holdback chocks that pop up when you get in position and press U. Then you can throttle up and they let you go when at...

Re: F/A-18 A/G Radar WIP. Due for release soon. June 3rd?

It was supposed to come out this week but got delayed.
It is now scheduled for 6/3. If all goes well. Of course, it won't be complete but at least parts of it will be enabled.

Re: Leatherneck F-8 Crusader

Ok so I was right about that being LN/M3.
I've enjoyed flying them in Strike Fighters 2. Basically same missiles as the F-86 but better guns.

Will be fun flying it on the Forrestal when that gets out.

Re: A-10C Version II. TBD

We were supposed to get an Apache as the 3rd vehicle. It was Ka-50, A-10C, AH-64 back in the 2008-10 days. Then one day they stopped talking about it. We got FC3 and then a bunch more DCS planes but not until the Huey, or was it Gazelle, did we get a 2nd helo. I love the Apache, I flew it in sims fr...

Re: Bought the MiG-19

LN is making the Crusader and Corsair I think? HB is still working on the F-14A and Forrestal, not sure what they have next. When it was one company it was easier, then they split up post-MiG-21 and now you've got HB and M3 and I can't keep them straight. M3 did Christen Eagle as well as MiG-21 I th...

Re: Don't know when we'll see Top Gun: Maverick

Best you can get now is the starfighters in Battlefront 2. They look great but are not doing the same "balance power between shields/guns/engines" thing of course.

Re: A-10C Version II. TBD

They predate DCS World. BS1 was the original release in 2008. When A-10C came out in 2010, it was standalone with a much improved Black Sea theater. BS2 was then released in 2011 i think with that same terrain, better graphics, various other improvements, and the ability to join MP with A-10C. Aroun...
