    A truly awesome update - thanks ED

    Just downloaded and tested the new A10C II. The A10C was certainly one of my favourite modules before and in my view the most complete in DCS.
    This new A10C II is just fantastic and worth the wait. Set up a few missions in Syria and Caucauses to fly around and test the systems and blow a few things up! The new head mounted sighting system is pure gold and works extremely well. To be able to use the head mounted display and sight to locate and mark targets, SPI’s and slave the tgp is a huge capability improvement. It really makes this machine live up to its well earned reputation as an awesome and feared tank killer. There is no other module in dcs that is as effective at targeting and weapons deployment as the A10. Sure others are faster, go higher, land on ships - but when it comes to just putting bombs and bullets on targets effectively i cant see how anything beats the A10.
    I could easily bin all my other modules now and just fly this. This module alone makes DCS worthy of the title of the best combat flight sim available.

    I agree on pretty much everything TED said


    Only flew for little over an hour now, but man, this is pure fun!

          A truly awesome update - thanks ED

          I killed 14 bmp’s and AAA’s with the new laser guide rockets (absolutely amazing), killed some heavy tanks with the new Maverick L variants and located targets with the HMD.

          I can genuinely say it’s an absolute and utter beast of an upgrade. I also love the new hud perspective, you can see all of the hud which was really turning me off flying the A10-C.

          It’s an absolutely amazing job and seriously worth the full price for people new to it.

                        I agree, outstanding module; I only hope the open beta phase would be as short as possible, since an outstanding module like this desevres to be completed and as bug free as possible sooner than later, so keep the good work and do not move the focus!

                            ED team just turned the Hog from being dangerous to LETHAL in this update.

                            Fantastic work guy's, I'm having an absolute blast with the Hog. As said above, anyone new to the Hog and thinking of purchasing it for the first time, don't hesitate. It's well worth the full price and is a firm benchmark for all other modules to be compared to. It simply is Eagle Dynamics's best, most detailed and realistic modern aircraft module to date, a true study sim and will IMHO take some beating.

                            I can't wait for the talented mission and campaign designers to come up with some new stuff for our new Hog.

                            Thanks ED, you guy's really put out this time. Awesome work

                              I have to agree and it's not even "done" yet. Most won't care about the ARC-210 but if SRS can get the information and/or ED gets their VOIP with realistic radio functions that'll be awesome too!

                              Good Job ED, and as always with anything concerning the A-10C anything I can do to help let me know!!

                                    The team had done a great job.

                                    I was delighted to see that they got APKWS details right, the rocket comes out spinning for a bit, then the fins deploy, de-rolls the rocket, so it can achieve guidance. And if you fire it out of range, the battery on the rocket will actually run out, so the rocket will go back to spinning.

                                    Great work ED!

                                      I agree. Made me fall back in love with this great module. The worn cockpit looks amazing in VR. The HMCS is a game changer and ground breaking, pun intended. ED could have charged more for this and I would have gladly paid for it.

                                        ED really nailed it with this and there is absolutely nothing not to love with this module. So far I havent experienced any bugs in open beta either so I would not be surprised if this is fairly quick now to be released to stable. Whilst we are all impatient and want the newest greatest modules out of ED as quickly as possible, I think this new A10C is really more justification as to why its important for ED to wait with their releases until the module is ready to go. So many of the early release projects (ED and 3rd party) have been fraught with issues that lead to so much frustration and criticism and really muddy the waters for DCS, which is in all reality and amazing product. This just shows that with a little patience and perseverance, when they get it right, they REALLY get it right!
                                        In all my years of career flying - both military and civilian, I have not experienced a simulator with this level of detail and realism. Sure the sims we use are full motion level D with all the original parts, but when it comes to visuals and flexibility of realistic mission planning they dont compete. My military days are behind me now, but i have seen that my old units are using VR training very actively now. I cant help thinking I wish I had had something like DCS available when I was a baby pilot on the squadrons!
