Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but did someone else remember EF2000? It was a briliant combat flight simulator for MS DOS with "VR Support" ;-) (I never tested the VR functionality ;-)) and a cool dynamic campain. I guess it was before Falcon 4.0 in 1995! Just because the did series was missed in the video... Later they made F22 Total Air War, but then DID was closed I guess :-(

I had EF2000 in the Windows 95 version. The most epic feature of it was its dynamic campaign engine.

So, recently I've been trying to get back into the Harrier, due to it being a much more mature product now and the addition of Baltic Dragon's excellent training missions:


Such a FARP landing isn't something seen everyday:

I like the feeling of flying and hovering the Harrier because it's the most similar feeling in DCS to fly the DG in Orbiter .

I never actually thought of that, but yes, it's indeed quite similar.

Except you have to watch your water level and after it's gone down you go like a rock.

If only the variant depicted in DCS could actually carry AMRAAMS:

The real A10's (It's my favorit modules in DCS) will get one more update in real life, and so thy will not be retired before 2030; So there is live in old hogs:





This will include

- New Wings
- New HMD
- Ground Radar Pod...
as far as I understood that video...

But I gues ED is not allowed to put this updates to in the sim :-(

Sound all like reasonable upgrades, especially the HMD makes sense for the A-10, if it is not the most complicated version, but more like in the Apache helicopters. Just don't put fragile stuff into it...

I didn't know it was good luck, popping flares after re-fueling.

Well, remember the flame propagation speed is much slower than the speed of a fully-loaded american warthog...

It's also a thank you for the tanker crew. After all, "No One Kicks Without Tanker Gas."

I suffer from the same issue, which is why I haven't pulled the trigger on any of the newer modules. The A10-C was the last one I bought.

I decided to try to get back into it a couple months ago, starting with some basic FC3 missions in the A10A. Yeah, that sucked royally as the targeting and weapon-switching seemed to only sporadically respond to control inputs, whether keyboard or joy inputs. I did finally successfully finish a mission, but when I landed, after I slowed to taxi, the nose of the A10A popped up in the air and it just sat there on its tail at the edge of the runway. I shut down and requested a repair. The aircraft lifted off the ground a few feet to perform the repairs....and exploded. Good times.

Then 2 weeks ago the most recent Win10 update bricked my machine and I had to reinstall. I've got everything back reinstalled except DCS, and I'm hesitant simply because I just don't have the time And I hate that because I was really starting to enjoy it back when I started playing.

Another module has been release in early accsess, it's the chineese / pakistani JF-17. It seems to be the first module which has a "usable" ground radar (see attached video @ ~ 9:00). However, I will still wait they finish the F/A-18 before buying another early accsess module...



Does someone tested it out? Does the AG Radar leads to a FPS drop?

Looks promising, especially for the immersion factor...
