Nope. 1.2.Something

I think EDGE is still a ways off yet. We should have the MiG-21 before the end of September (conservative estimate).

I wish there was a preorder facility as I know it'll come out when I have no money.

A liberal estimate is it will come out before 5 mins from now.

Still just trying to figure out the mind boggling amount of assignments for this thing.

Lock Canopy
Unlock Canopy
Pressurize Cockpit
Open Canopy
Close Canopy

Even raising the landing gear isn't a simple "G" affair... <G> Falcon might finally have a worthy successor to the age old question: "How do I engage nosewheel steering?"

Have only been flying around and have not messed with the radar at all. I don't even know how it works (yet!)..











Landing this thing is about as dynamic experience as you can have in DCS World at the moment. It makes the A-10C feel like a Cessna 172. Abbreviated patterns are definitely not a great idea..a long and straight final to get squared away is a bit helpful. I still don't have a handle on the Vref type speeds you'd want to fly at various weights. I just keep an eye on the AOA indexer and have been keeping it just below 10 and that seems to be working out OK...





Chute works great for slowing down. I hadn't mapped my speedbrakes yet and that would have helped too. Without the chute you had better get it on the beginning of the runway and get on the brakes and start slowing. Reminds me a lot of the Su-25/-25T landing feel with regards to runway distance required..



Didn't know how to repack my landing chute, and on the subsequent takeoff I must have forgotten one step in the canopy secure procedure since that popped open and departed the aircraft..



Fun stuff. Ya'll gonna love it..but ham-fisted pilots are gonna have their hands full.. And to fly and fight it..is gonna be a lot like the workload of flying the Ka-50.

Beach it's looking quite good. I am curious, comparing your screenshots to those on the Leatherneck site, it appears there is an option to have the placards and other in-cockpit text in English?

Beach8AVR, awesome screenies! smile

Hey Boomerang.

All text except some parts are available in English.
Gauges are in Russian only at the moment (hopefully I can get the ENG ones in again before release, no promises)

Maybe if we appease the Lethernecks and give them gifts they might look favourably upon us and release it?

Here, Leathernecks, accept this pizza of cheesiness...

Funny that, because that is exactly what I was thinking of (your reports in the first AAR back then) when you started to write about it winkngrin


Jesus, this place has really gone downhill

I just quit caring about the MiG-21 and I'm now focused entirely on that delicious looking pizza. Maybe I should eat lunch now...

(On a serious note, thanks Cobra! And don't let having English gauges hold up the release, that being in a patch later is fine by me rofl )

I think you are in cahoots with Cobra to drive up the price....
