I was quite suspicious of this myself when the Hawk was able to take off, fly a dodgy circuit with both internal and external views showing the the flaps at full extension have absolutely no influence on the 'EFM' let alone cause the left wing to rise and enter a spiral spin as it would IRL.

Back to the drawing board for VEAFAIL smile

I am curious about how this one has been implemented

This should be quite interesting considering the Hawk has absolutely zero 'flight logic' It flies on 1 wing just fine and taxis just fine even when it has no wing or nose wheel. I am calling BS on this one.

Yet if it had any logic, it would be able to do something like this in my test video above with the wing ripped off



Never fear gents, once I have completed the 'unofficial tester flight program' on the Hawk in it's current state, I will update to the 'latest and greatest' version for a side by side comparison

Another upsetting factor that has changed is the stores this crap wagon can carry.

See page 45 at the below source as the copied table is on par with the Hawk module.....a fail

Aden gun pod is only available on centre pylon, Hawk Story states otherwise, MK82's able to be carried on inner and outer pylon, VEAFAIL's only allow inner pylon, taking shortcuts on the module and I have only just scratched the surface over the last 2 years.
