F-14 vs MiG-23 footage

So, I've been playing Command: Modern Air / Naval Operations again recently again and I came across a link to a video (although it's mostly just audio) of a pair of F-14s flying a CAP when they encounter 2 Libyan Mig-23s. It's a pretty interesting listen, and you can really hear the adrenalin of the lead Tomcat pilot as the MiGs close in. The Tomcats changed direction 5 times with the MiGs matching each time before the decision was made to engage.

I used to have this on VHS waaaay back in the day, elementary or middle school for me. I had the dogfight dubbed onto a cassette tape and used to listen to in on my Sony Walkman while riding the bus to and from school on some days.

 

Yeah, I'm that old ;)

 

My favorite line: "I can't, I can't. I can't get a f*ing tone!"

Yeah, that line was great! He got it right after, and that growling tone got my adrenaline pumping!

Well, with DCS the biggest problem right now is being able to pick the d*amn planes up visually! Of course, that's not so much a problem the more modern you go, but still!

 

I need to find some time to get start flying DCS again. Maybe with the release of 1.5 or 2!

I heard all of that was fixed with "Edge" is that it? All my DCS time is flying the TF-51D around the patch. Relaxing :P

They've fixed the visual range problem with the 1.5 Open Beta.  There is now a toggle in the options area, between Original, Standard and Enhanced.

 

It's really awesome.
