      Careful! You might accidentally open the flood gates!

        The main reason we've spent time with the Di lately is because it's the only Viggen around my parts (Graz). As mentioned previously, we've spent a lot of time in various AJ/AJS cockpits already.
        Hi Cobra,

        I suppose that you are referring to the instant missions and a few single missions, and that the campaign will take place in the new map that you are creating. So, is crazy to expect a some form of early access in the upcoming weeks without the new map and the campaign ?

          For now, all Viggen content will be on Caucasus.
          We'll announce concrete theatre plans as we draw closer to a development close on that area.

          The Viggen will come with training missions, single missions and two campaigns (mini & extended- extended may be post-release).

            Ouuh, that sounds great, take your time with the release though !
            The mirage was indeed fun to fly around but tbh, I had more fun with the release model Polychop was going for, release the practically done thing.

            But whatevar, cant wait to sink possible future fleets with RBS15 and close Airfields with MJ2 loaded BK90s. )

            JA37 would be lovely, especially a variant with AIM120s.

              Thanks for the update, Cobra! I'm really looking forward to the Viggen.

                That was a good update Cobra. Thanks.

                And of course we want a JA37, a FC3 variant would be just fine if you feel like that. Better than no one at all.

                  As much as I want to fly it yesterday (yesteryear even ) I am of those who prefer a development studio to polish an fix until they decide it is good enough even for a early release. We may criticise LN for some stuff may be, but they have been flagbearers of releasing a module feature complete. A bug free release is obviously an impossible bar to jump over, but some DCS releases like MiG-21 and Gazelle has shown utmost effort to keep things feature complete, and mostly pulled that off, and I appreciate that .

                  Viggen is currently my most anticipated aircraft to fly in DCS .

                  Oh, and yes, thanks for update .

                    Fpl 37 aerodynamik III : Manöverprestandabegränsningar : Halvroll : Kompendium

                    So I heard you guys were interested in the Viggen's split S performance...? Well, here you go, read 50 pages about it, (tl;dr: no I'm pretty sure you can't do it from 500m) and remember to eat your spinach:



                    If anything happens after you've reached 60° dive angle, continue the maneuver but exert yourself (on the stick) (eat twice as many slices of bread + spinach) and reduce throttle to flight idle.

                    Also, gonna quote myself for the previous part because nobody reads the last post on a page when the next page has a Cobra post on top:

                    Discovered yesterday that this was declassified and received photos of it from an acquaintance. There's another part forthcoming too that may solve the silly split S debate forever.

                    Lots of cool illustrations too, my favorite might be this one:

                      Releasing a feature complete Viggen sounds way better to be honest! I like that approach a lot. For my taste, the M2000 release was a few months too early and there are tons of things still missing/not working as intended etc. That's why I decided to put it aside and fly with it once it is out of beta

                        Viggen with AIM-120s? Was that even a thing?

                          Yes. The AIM-120 was procured with the intention of using it on the Gripen, but it was also integrated on the JA 37D(i?) very late in its life. In the late 90's they were still figuring they'd be running the JA 37 in parallel with the Gripens for many years to come, like the Draken had been kept in parallel with the Viggen, and they wanted to keep it "operationally relevant". It never turned out that way because a ton of air wings got disbanded after 2000, but it wasn't a bad idea.

                            AFAIK the JA37DI was wired for the aim120, but it was never used.

                              AFAIK the JA-37D was capable to use the AMRAAM.

                                Hmm, that's interesting, thanks. I guess there are no pics of such a loadout?

                                Has it just been wired to use AIM-120s or have there been flight and maybe even live fire tests?

                                    It was cleared for operational use so there's got to have been live fire tests. Test flights started in fall 1997.

                                      I was almost the 3rd to post the same pic . Haven't been able to find an in flight pic of it but, JA-37D and Di were AIM-120B capable according to many sources.
