  • Many people only think of the Me-262 in terms of a 1-v-1 fighter-v-fighter matchup. With the current planeset, it might seem that there is no balance. However, the first plane of a genre to arrive in DCS will always be alone. Tempests (and teamwork) will make for a superb challenge against the Me-262....

    replied to A8 to F8
    ^ This.

    Plus getting the bugs ironed out. I am hoping that with the new damage model, it will be possible for ED to go back and address the bombs and especially the bugs with the advertised cluster munitions for the A8. These are important not just for that aircraft, but for the F8....

    replied to MB-339C?
    Certainly the glamour-fighters are popular. However, to paraphrase from the helicopter community... "most DCS helicopter pilots will have all DCS helicopters".

    And, although smaller, the "trainer/acrobatics" community will do the same. I have got all trainer aircraft...

    replied to Where's the C-47?
    Yes, totally agreed. Bringing any logistics flying to WW2 would be superb. If transport pilots could usefully contribute to the "war effort", then it would provide not only a role for more broad-minded DCS pilots, but also a bridge to the civil-aviation pilots....

    Background reading for the MB339?

    It's always interesting to research aircraft and do some reading before getting a new module. I noticed this...

    ... so the MB339 we get, will be A/PAN version.

    Apart from Wikipedia, can anyone recommend a good reference, flight manual, book or anything else with some details...

  • The poll question doesn't compute: Pretend to buy? Or actually buy? Weird.

    I have all the DCS helicopters and by far I enjoy the SA342 the most. I'll probably be getting the OH-58 given how good the SA342 is (although, as with any new module, I'll always check the reviews first).

    I was not aware of the distinction... thanks for pointing that out. That's led me to some interesting reading. (Which is why I love aviation forums... always getting to learn something new!)

    Anyway.... I've been trying to find a good reference which shows the differences. Do you know of...

    replied to RNZAF Skin?
    Thanks for the pointer! I did a bit of searching and found a few other ideas too. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...h/?tags=MB-339


    However, getting them "official" (esp. the historical ones) means that they can be used in multiplayer scenarios without requiring...

    replied to RNZAF Skin?
    Agreed! An RNZAF paintscheme would be really nice. (Especially if the tail-numbers are not hard-baked on, and could be changed via the mission editor.)

    I'm thinking of using it over the upcoming Marianas map. Those RNZAF markings would be perfect for some Pacific Island scenarios.

    replied to So glad to see this!
    These sorts of aircraft made by 3rd-parties, are often "labours-of-love". They get built because the developers are proud and passionate about that particular airframe type.

    The original MB3-39 was announced way back in June 2016 (REF). The fact that IndiaFoxtEcho are still at...

    Another idea.... in the mission editor, at the bottom of the screen, there is a "watch" button (mouse hover = "Historical List of Units"). It's on the bottom task bar, just to the right of where it says "MAP / SAT / ALT" and the little "tank" icon. Make sure...

    It might be to do with the date in the mission editor. Try making the mission date later (or find the option that lets you use aircraft from any era)....

    replied to Wheres my g91 at?
    I'm already really pleased with the MB-339 news. But I'd be really thrilled if a G.91 was ever realised! Yes... go for it!! (and with German markings too, please!)

    replied to The Yak-52 as a WW2 stand-in?
    I know this is an old thread, but I've still kept at hunting around looking for ideas. Then, I came across this "RAF trainer". As first I didn't think it was a Yak-52 (because of the conventional gear, exhausts and canopy). I tried to find it by the registration, but only found a different...
