Our first development is the BAE Hawk T.1A trainer.
Why the Hawk?
Well first, simply its the jet we have modelled, skinned and fully working in FC2 and has the simplest of features to get working in DCS as the cockpit is mostly analogue. It allows us to get into the inner workings of DCS and allows us to produce a high quality product without having to get too technical with MFCD functionality, advanced radar dynamics, etc.
Secondly, it's the fast jet trainer that the RAF (and other air forces) use for pilots getting into the Fast Jet Programme. This also fits in with our ACTS concept which I'll talk about a little later.
We have also discussed producing the Hawk Mk. 128 T2 variant.
The Mk. 128 includes modern LCD displays instead of conventional instrumentation, and allows preparation for flying modern fighter aircraft, particularly the all "glass" Typhoon.
And so, on to my favourite jet, the Eurofighter Typhoon.
Ever since our first developments back in 2008 for the RAF Recruitment team we have loved working on this aircraft.
She is complex as hell, flies like a bat out of hell and quite frankly is a match for any other aircraft in the world, even putting the Raptor to hard work in recent exercises.
This baby is going to be a beast to build into DCS and one hell of a challenge, but it's going to be great fun!!
We will start with an early tranche, most likely the Block 1 moving onto Tranche 2 and Tranche 3 with complex Air-to-Ground systems and full DCS integration.
The VEAO team are pleased to announce that we have signed contracts to develop the following aircraft for the DCS flight simulator engine.
DCS: Eurofighter Typhoon
We will be starting with the BAE Hawk T1.A as this is the model we have developed the most so far and is the easiest to integrate into DCS as it is less digital.
So far the integration into DCS is going well, however we are learning as we go along, as are other mod teams.
We have created forums for general discussion at this time and may expand these later.
These are very exciting times for the team and the community and we are very pleased to make this announcement.
