General Discussion / Helo love
« Last post by 159th_Archer on April 02, 2020, 07:16:35 PM »
Had an ad-hoc flight with Ajax -him in his Ka and me in a Hip, and it appears that there's been quite a bit of tweaking going on with at least these 2 machines. Aj reported a less forgiving VRS in the Ka whilst I'm finding the Mi-8 a little more forgiving at first impressions.

Both machines can suffer from over-loading the engines and thus losing generators in the case of the Hip, -you can't fling either helo around quite so enthusiastically now -but that isn't a biggie.

I found that with-out doubt, the Hip takes damage WAY better these days -I took 3 lots of hits from a BTR and that only slowly caused me issues -no more AK easy deaths (although I ain't tried engaging AK troops TBH as yet...) but the days of dying easy appear gone?!

I had trouble selecting some weapons on certain pylons for some reason -need to test out what's going-on there.

Like the Hip even more now! 8)

Yeah I agree Papps -I haven't even got out in my MiG-19 yet, and I have also just bought the Hornet in the SC bundle -the A-7 can wait. 8)

Yeah Papps, I bought the Hornet/Super-carrier/Su-33 bundle for $49.99 (I already have the Flanker D of course) -good price I think.

I am not so much a fan of modern AC -I prefer the earlier generations of jets. But, I decided I wanted the new carriers and anyway, there are few choices for carrier AC in this day and age.

I will park the F/A-18 for now as I am loving the MiG-21 too much and haven't even got out in my MiG-19 bought early this year. One reason I don't get everything -too much to fly!

ED has burnt their fingers manytimes with announcements which didnt realise, or planes never getting to early access.

My only bet, in this regards is ED and Razbam. When they say they gonna make a module, then its happens.  Razam 3x already.

Dont get your hopes up too quick on this one.


Announcement today of the A-7E Corair 11 compatible with the new super-carrier. This excites me more than any of these fighter-thingies... 8) :)

General Discussion / F-16C if you already have the F-18C ni Covid-19 times

At the moment ED is running an unprecedented long sale.  Everything is on sale even the F-16C!
They sayd it will be at least a year..  and its been out how long, 6 months?

On 20-march there was a free F-16C tryout period, which i tried. Honest, its good. But, I already have the F-18C which does more. Carrier operations and Harpoon antiship most noteably. Online servers always features both aircraft, so both aircraft being so similiar and the F18C more capable makes the latter my choice.
Another Covid-19 sale alternative is the JF-17. Certinaly the most expensive DCS module to date, but hugely nice weapon payload such as the man-in-the-middle antiship missile.

Did you guys buy anything, if so, which module?

Just paid for the Hornet/Carrier/flanker bundle at 49.99 USD. Good price I think even though I already have the '33.
