    THIS is the most ridiculous argument ever! The Su-27, F/A-18C or F-16C is far more "too new" compared to a Bf-109 or Spitfire or even an F-86F or MiG-15Bis... Did it matter that despite not "matching" the timeline of respective other planes when they were released? Nope. People were just happy to be able to enjoy them. Same will be true for the Typhoon. Despite a small vocal group of PvP enthusiasts that are to lazy to setup their own servers, confine airframes and weapons in mission building, like most of the more mature groups do.
    When the P-51D released it was the only WW II plane, when the F-86F released it was up against a Bf-109 or a MiG-21 etc.

Infact it's the main reason EM charts are at all publically available for many of the jets now in service, because it's widely known you can't really keep that stuff truly secret - and it has been like this for a while. Besides revealing kinematic performance doesn’t reveal how said airframe was constructed or what materials were used to achieve the listed weight or power figures.

      As such the type of performance that is truly secret is that of the weapons & sensor systems, and as such we naturally don't have any accurate figures for this in the public, and that goes for a lot of stuff that aint even in service anymore and hasn't been for a while as well - because this is the information the other side can't accurately predict and hence are very keen to acquire.

      Thus I certainly trust TG are going to be giving us a very accurately flying Eurofighter, as I cannot see any reason for them not to.
      Not to belabor this point, but there are no EM charts for the Typhoon available. So clearly the manufacturer and the various participating militaries disagree with you. Also, remember that while we have "some" diagrams for the existing airframes in the DCS arsenal, they are just exerpts. We do not - by any stretch of the imagination - have a complete set of EM charts publically available for any of the planes as far as I know. And there are a lot of these sets per airframe.

      So, whether or not you can see a reason for it, TrueGrit is going to comply with restrictions put upon them, as they have pointed out. Manage your expectations, please. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here and then complain when things don't quite turn out the way we want them to.

        No we very much do have complete sets of EM charts for several of the fighters ingame, many of which are still currently in service (F-16, F-15, F-4 etc.), their entire performance manuals no less. The reason(s) the EF's EM charts aren't available can be many, it's a relatively new airframe for one, and second every nation/company doesn't treat these things the same. However there is little reason to keep the kinematic performance secret for aircraft that have been in service for 20 or more years and are sold internationally, which is why we have so many performance manuals available for aircraft older than that. (F-22 is a special case, being sold to no'one else)
