    I'd like to thank everyone on behalf of FlyingIron for the overwhelming support, and for welcoming us to the DCS community, it truly means the world to us. We are incredibly excited to bring this iconic aircraft to DCS World and we are glad to see that you guys share our excitement.

    Whilst the aircraft is in its very early stages of development, feel free to ask any questions and either Dan or myself will try our best to answer them. Our development progress will be posted on various social media channels that can be seen in my signature below. We will also get a thread going somewhere in there forums here.

    Cheers,


    Alex

      For those who are wondering why anyone would be interested in the A-7 Corsair just listen to the Fighter Pilot Podcast and an interview with a pilot who flew the plane. He gives interesting insight on the plane. I learned a lot about this plane from this interview.

        A-6 was worse; they called it the man eater (sexist pigs; next they'll talk about Mae West curves). Small intakes, which meant high flow, right behind places where people have to stand to get the aircraft ready to shoot.


        At least with the A-7 the danger was more or less out of the way and obvious.


        The A-7 didn't use bridles, did it? Maybe the early versions. I believe the F4 and F-8 were bridle launched.

              Good luck and all the best for your exciting endeavour. I think you will find that the A-7 has a pretty solid following around here and is highly anticipated.

              One interesting question at this early stage might be what era you are targeting with your A-7E. Vietnam, Libya, Desert Storm or something in between? I guess the question boils down to LANA and HARM yes/no.

                  Hi Alex,

                  So 3 questions:

                  1. Which specific version of the A7E are you doing? Like in year/buno number and what capabilities will it have.

                  2. How much coding expertise do you guys have? Often, IMO this is where several 3rd parties really struggle is to realistically implement systems, and FM's.

                  3. How complete will the A7E be on release, are you guys planning on a mostly done release, or more of a half done with long EA release?

                    Great.
                    It's not a carrier version, right? Pity, if not.

                      I'm pretty sure that the A-7E was a Navy carrier based a/c. The A-7D was the Air Force version.

                        I just checked external model screenshots at official website
                        I didn't see a hook there

                        Maybe its because of WIP. Because launch bar is present)))

                            Nice try. I'm about 100% sure they call it something else now. When I studied this there was a 50% chance of passing and a 15% chance of attempting suicide. Welcome to the Navy.

                                Yeah...the partial inversion isn't much fun. One would think they'd improve parachute performance.


                                Enough of this, though. The A-7 done yet? We've goofed off for almost ten minutes...that should be enough time. What have you guys been doing?

                                      It wont be just the taillhook though.

                                      What really has Navy version top off the USAF variation is that it gets larger diversity in guided munitions. AGm45, Agm88 , AGm62 walleye, ( basic and ERDL) and Mavericks
