I didn't include Britain, of course. By the way, it was also used by the Blue Diamonds, 92sqn RAF aerobatic team smile

Lovely aeroplane.

There are more very talented guys from the MSFS scene jumping on board the DCS dev 'bandwagon' every week, too - so expect some really nice models in a year or so.

The Sea Fury might not be freeware (if he actually manages to do it), but the dev normally doesn't charge much for his flight sim add-ons.

Sorry for staying OT after it had wandered. Let's get back to hoping the MiG-21 comes out soon - then when the Hunter is here, it will have some relevant opposition. yep

Like the 21, there are LOTS of Hunter variants, too.

the Hunter was also used by the Patrouille Suisse, the Swiss army aerobatic team up to 1994.

The version being modelled is a trainer version.

Still can do all the stuff the single-seaters can, but if the two crew thing gets completed in DCSW, you could fly it with a friend (or teach him...).

Last shots I saw, it was toting four AGM-65s and another one shows it with a couple of Sidewinders hahaha

The guy is just playing around at the moment, though, finding out how things work.

No one knows, apparantly not even the devs, which considering it is almost 2 years late is rather sad.

I've heard that if you look real close, you can just about make out the first announced MiG-21 release date on the Bayeux Tapestry jawdrop

I don't know why you guys are complaining. My MiG-21 is flying just fine.. exitstageleft

My first take-off. Didn't read the manual or do a cold start (I cast aside my professionalism just this once..err..yeah..). I had no idea what the rotation speed should be. I'll tell you right now..this is the liveliest ground handling beast I've encountered yet in DCS. I over-rotated, then got in a real quick PIO and hit my gear on the runway, damaging the left main. Hauled it back off, and horsed it around the pattern. (Love the high pitch, sled like drag feel to this thing..) and landed with a bent left main, which promptly collapsed. I did survive though..



This thing is awesome. I'm gonna spend a long time learning this...

cool

OK, Beach. Enough learning. I can't find your AAR and it's been a whole hour.

Ah, like my first time taking off in the 25T. And the Ka-50. And half the planes in Il-2.

Good grief. Look at the level of detail of the skin and textures. You can almost imagine a Russian worker's hands pounding that metal or something...



Another thing, a little detail, the afterburner coming on effect is really, really good. The hue (or color or whatever) seems very realistic and it flickers ever so slightly making it appear alive.



Just initial blush stuff.. And I won't be writing much about it here unfortunately. A SimHQ staffer will give you guys the meat I'm sure at some point.

"Likely only a few weeks away". Yup, couldn't get anymore vague than that.

With all due respect, that's something I suspect too many have heard too many times.

Really looking forward to this. Lots of work and attention to detail.
