I really want to get some of these, but even in the sales they seem really overpriced.

£10 for what appears to be one plane dlc! Tell me I'm wrong Scrooge and I'll take the plunge.

You're wrong, these are highly detailed aircraft that react as close to how they would in real life. Most are study sims where there is a gooseberry fool tonne of documentation and manuals to read and you can go through the full set of procedures that an actual pilot would do.

The next stage after these study sims is getting a full on flight sim with pistons and gooseberry fool.

NEWS TIME

CS: F-5E Tiger II is now available for pre-purchase!

Belsimtek with The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics are happy to announce that DCS: F-5E Tiger II is available for pre-purchase from the DCS shop. The pre-purchase provides both a 20% discount off the retail price and access to the Early Access coming in July-August 2016.



The F-5E was developed by Northrop Corporation in early 1970s. The light tactical fighter is an upgraded version based on previous F-5A developments. The F-5s’ combat role encompasses air superiority, ground support, and ground attack. Given its mission flexibility, ease of operation, and low cost, the Tiger II has, and continues to serve, air forces across the globe.

The F-5E has trapeziform wings, two turbojet engines equipped with afterburners, and tricycle landing gear. Pitch, roll, and yaw control systems are hydraulically actuated in order to relieve control stick and rudder pedals forces. Artificial feel system is built in pitch and roll control systems to simulate aerodynamic loads for the pilot. For example: after the landing gear is retracted, left and right movement of the control stick is limited by a spring mechanism to prevent excessive roll rates.

A pressurized cockpit and air conditioning system ensures pilot safety at all altitudes up to the service ceiling. The pilot is also provided with an oxygen mask and anti-g suit. The cockpit is fitted with a Martin Baker SIII S-3 ejection seat, two UHF radios, automatic direction finder, radio navigation system, and a standard set of navigation lights. Landing-taxi lights are located on the underside of each engine inlet duct are extended together with the landing gear. The cockpit canopy provides a superb in-flight view appropriate for air-to-air operations.

The F-5E is armed with two 20-mm M39-A3 cannons with 280 rounds per each cannon. The cannons are located in the nose section, forward of the cockpit. Special deflectors are used to avoid compressor stall conditions caused by hot gas ingestion as a bi-product of operating the M-39-A3. Each cannon is capable of firing at a rate of 1500 to 1700 rounds per minute.

Each wingtip incorporates a launcher rail capable of firing AIM-9 infrared-guided missiles.

Five hard points (one centerline pylon and four underwing pylons) allow the aircraft to carry different types of air-to-ground weapons (bombs, cluster munitions, and rockets) 6,400 pounds (about 3000 kg) in total. In addition, illumination ammunition and cargo containers can be attached. To increase flight duration and range, external fuel tanks can be attached to three hard points (a centerline pylon and two inboard pylons). Maneuverability and speed can be maximized in combat by jettisoning all external stores.



Key Features of the DCS: F-5E Tiger II:

    * Professional Flight Model that accurately mimics the performance and flight characteristics of this legendary fighter
    * Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit
    * Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse
    * Fully modelled weapon system
    * Accurate F-5E model with multiple country markings
    * Detailed modelling of the F-5E instruments, engine, radios, fuel, electrical, and hydraulic systems
    * Single missions and full set of training missions will be created while in Early Access
    * Full and Quick Start manuals in Russian and English languages
    * Extended Campaign for the F-5E by Maple Flags Missions Developer (not included in the module package)



I know what my next purchase is, Aww yeah!! 8-)

strawberry float!!!! I just remembered a game that was always heralded to be the best combat flight sim but all it became was vapourware.

Did you ever hear about Fighter Ops?

:lol:

I remember people had to pay to get news about the development! (I think they were starting with the T-5)

Edit: it was actually the T38 Supersonic Trainer

oh well at least we have DCS :toot:

The aircraft systems, engine and weapons have been simulated in full. The professional flight model has been developed. All the real procedures are possible in two interactive cockpits. Highly detailed and accurate model of the aircraft will make you feel the unforgettable sense of flying the famous “flying school desk”, which opened the way to the sky to thousands of air forces pilots worldwide.

Key Features of the DCS: L-39 Albatros:

Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit

This evening I have done something remarkable.

Managed to stay connected to the tanker for more than 30secs, and got the glorious message " Transfer Complete" 8-)

Haven't managed that since I got the game.... more than 5 years ago :oops:

the level of detail they are putting in to the new terrain engine is unreal - I think there is going to be a big focus on combined arms in the future, expect on the ground tank battles!

Eagle Dynamics wrote:
Eagle Dynamics SA is excited to announce that DCS: F/A-18C Hornet will have its debut showing at E3 2017 at the Thrustmaster® booth. DCS: F/A-18C will be by far the most authentic PC simulation of a modern fighter to date. Based on exhaustive research in association with Boeing, current fighter pilots and the development of our new simulation engine, the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet will set a new benchmark.

Eagle Dynamics SA senior producer, Matt Wagner, states, “We are happy to announce the cooperation between Eagle Dynamics SA and Thrustmaster® to create the ultimate F/A-18C Hornet simulation experience”. “After the success of our first collaboration with Eagle Dynamic SA on DCS: A-10C Warthog, that lead to the HOTAS Warthog, we are proud to start a new collaboration on the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet”, says Gilles Raulet, Thrustmaster Development Director.
