    Great interview with a lot of info. Watch the whole thing if you have the time. (recommended)

    Some snippets

    Pilots learn more about real BVR by facing missiles in sim.

    DCS is hard and some effort is needed to learn systems (complexity and frustrations)

          Thanks for the link. Interesting video. Nice to see some benefits from the DOD product filtering down to us on the "gaming" end of DCS.

            Needs more views, DCS players need to see this, it is part of their connection with their hobby where military pilots talk about the connection between the sim and the job/industry. DCS is at a leading edge of that connection, being the closest publically accessible simulator to this world (by virtue of its ever increasing usage within the military, including at least now two of its 3rd party addons: Tacview, LotATC)
            I especially enjoy Simon and Tim's style of delivery, I found them easy to listen to, entertaining in delivery and both of them are sexy in their respective hairy or smooth ways!!
