DCS: Mi-24P preview

Recommended Posts

It looks really good and I will probably get it but there seems to be nothing happening for equivalent opposition, i.e. the Cobra / Apache:

There is a Mod:

As for the Cobra:

This issue is where DCS somewhat falls flat for me... they bring out these amazing modules but there is no equivalent opposition or there are missing aircraft to fill the concept. i.e:

MiG 21, MiG 19 needs a Phantom or Thud

WWII needs dedicated ground attack aircraft / bombers.

Mig 15 / F 86 is pretty good for Korean era but I'm still hoping for some carrier action.

Still... the premier combat flight sim at present.

Yeah, really looking forward to the Hind!

I am not a huge helicopter fan, but the Hind, Cobra, Apache are very cool and I will buy them as soon as they become available......

Would love some more 60s aircraft as well...Mig 17, Su 7, Su17.....and of course the American F-100, F-104, F-105....that would be great!!!!!

Yeah, the Hind looks amazing.  I really can't wait.

Also, I loved 9:05 in the DCS video. :D

You might want to have a look at this: https://stormbirds.blog/2020/08/01/grim-reapers-qa-with-eagle-dynamics-reveals-future-details-for-dcs/ 

There are some gaping holes out there, no doubt about that. I'm looking forward to the MiG-23 and AvioDev's Mirage F1, they will spice things up on the Cold War server. The Phantom represents a massive missed opportunity, I'm pretty sure people would be lining up to buy it. The Century Series aircraft, while very nice, wouldn't be a sound business proposition for ED - IMHO it's far more likely they'll get picked up by 3rd party devs. I still don't get why the A-4 Skyhawk mod hasn't been picked up as an official module. The Kfir mod also looks amazing, I hope they become a full-time dev.

Oh yeah. It's a shame ED put the AH-1S on the back burner, BLUFOR could use some proper attack helicopters. When it comes to modules, the Su-17 is at the top of my wishlist, right up there with the Su-24 and full-fidelity early Soviet 4th gens.

This is definitely the shortcoming of DCS. The models that they develop are a little off. Even the versions we do have don’t line up, quite right.
