OK, I'm maybe getting it.
OK, so I got it...
Excellent, my takeoffs exceed my landings by a significant number...
Went under my first bridge, no landing needed after that flight, bent the props so zoomed for height and baled.
Canopy jettison seemed a bit jet age, chute opened just before splat-down.
The AI didn't fight back in the tutorial mission, but that was probably deliberate. Will try creating some missions tonight.
Expensive considering the width of content, but worth it considering the depth.
However $40 per aircraft is going to get expensive, OK maybe for full detail flyables, but we really need a set of 'external only' adversary and friendly aircraft that should be bundled free.
Also a trifle concerned to see Black Shark and A-10C links as 'to be purchased' in DCS World as I have both of those already, hopefully the integration will be a free patch (even if just for beta customers :-).
