Dont think of it as being vastly outnumbered ... but just having a large target selection.

The only thing more accurate than incoming fire, is incoming friendly fire

I assume that's referring to an F18 grip add-on (or possibly new throttle unit) for the Warthog base perhaps.....and given that Eagle Dynamics is involved in the F18 software and therefore long delays, early access rip-off, bugs and no intention to ever complete that module I'm much more interested in the hardware upgrade.

E3 2017 is set for June 13-15... that's just a little over two weeks from today. See the state Normandy is in? And weren't they halting work on the Hornet until AFTER Normandy comes out? So what state of development is the F-18 really at?

Will this be something people can play with and have a fiddle around? Or will it just be some videos "showcasing" the F-18? The post isn't really clear but even if it were, well, so many lies are present anyway...

the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet will set a new benchmark
Benchmark for what? So far, they've only been setting benchmarks for things NOT to do, for how to NOT manage a project, and for how to NOT handle their customers
the next level of combat aviation simulation
It's only "next level" if your current level is really low. To be fair, it doesn't say that there are other sims where their level far exceeds DCS...
Our dream is to offer the most authentic and realistic simulation of military aircraft, tanks and ships possible
"We are having loads of trouble achieving that dream, despite 10+ years of development..."
The free download includes a vast mission area of the Caucasus region and Black Sea that encompasses much of Georgia
Which has been available since... LOMAC? 15-18 years ago?
the famous WWII North American TF-51D fighter
Ah yes... a combat flight simulator offering a free aircraft with the "combat" part removed from the aircraft
the most powerful mission planner ever designed
Pffft!! Hahahahaha....
full network play
Is this still really a "feature" at this day and age?? Might as well have listed "program installation via command prompt"
permitting you to plan and play highly sophisticated missions
After hours and hours and hours of work to fly a mission that lasts one hour. Also, how do you like watching a movie where you've written the script, cast the actors, designed the scenes, did the camera work, done the editing, done the promotion, and still expect to be wowed once you watch it for the 1,000,000th time, only this time it's in the cinema?
DCS World is massively extensible
Just don't expect everything to play nice with each other
DCS is a true "sandbox" simulation that is also designed to cover multiple time periods of interest such as WWII, Vietnam, Gulf War and others
This is evidence of ED living in the future... did they get David_OC to write this spiel for them?
As examples of products progressing to completion for DCS, "Normandy 1944" is in final phase of development and "Persian Gulf" is close behind
Hahahahahaha!! Normandy is in final phase of development indeed!! Hahahahahaha!! "Close behind" may also mean 8-10 years from now
fundamentally a deep, authentic and realistic simulation game
duh
The only next step is the real thing
Nope, sorry. Try again.

Way over in Perth, Western Aus...
I am interested in the new theater and hope there will be some historically relevant missions, campaigns, MP scenarios ie not both sides with F-15s and Bf-109s flying on the same map...

Also interested in the carrier ops. Carrier ops is pretty complex - ie recovery patterns, marshal stacks, push times, foul deck, wave offs, bolters etc... will be interesting how they do this considering how poorly ATC works at the moment...

Looking forward to the 12 years pre-alpha period.
I am sure I will play ArmA3 and Falcon BMS those 12 years.

New theatre, do you mean Persian Gulf? If so, let's put this a little into context. Nevada existed in DCS A10C during Beta 2? Or Beta 3 period? Anyway, late 2010. We got it again as Alpha on December 2015. Currently, it is still in "Early Access"... let's call it Beta. 7 years after it was first seen, it's still not finished. Have we even seen Persian Gulf yet? I'll leave you to your conclusions.

Funny how I came across this newsletter in my digging around.... this is dated December 2014.

THREE years later and a map module is still in "Early Access".... a **MAP**
Good luck with Normandy.

You think we can move into BMS VR by that time? biggrin

Guys try to see the positive side. By the time the F-18 is released, I'll be rich enough to buy a real F-18, which will be considered a vintage warbird by then, and fly it at airshow all over the country. Pretty neat huh? wink

I will remind you that by that time, I'll be your bestest best buddy in the whole wide world as well, so naturally you'll pick me to be in the #2 seat. biggrin

Translates to yesterday in ED-speak. So they are still correct. It's almost ready.
