    Yes and it would benefit all soviet planes, not only MiG-29 but also MiG-19, MiG-21, MiG-23. Western planes also use GCI support, US just relegated the control to air AWACS earlier....

  • Up to about 10-15,000ft - in classic big mouth GE F-16C block 30 in light AA configuration? As long as pilot withstand the G force. Look at F-16 energy maneuvering chart - is can sustain 9G untill the end of gas up to 10-15k ft - bviously it depends on configuration, mass, even weather to some degree....

  • Squeezing 9G at 450kts in real combat enviroment makes the plane a lot harder to kill with any weapon than one making 7.5G at 350kts - regardless of similar turn rate - real combat enviroment is rarely a honorable 1v1 duel.

    It also gives the plane a lot easier time disengaging accelerating...

    Noone ever say ED will not make some AI plane. As AI plane, very simplified, they can even make Raptors, F-35s, Su-57s, J-20 without any problem. Totally unrealistic though......

    replied to DCS: F-15C
    Personally for me pure single role fighters like MiG-29, F-15A/C, Su-27, MiG-25 are the most exciting.

    And let's not forget there were only 3 pure multirole planes Hornet, Viper and Phantom. (excluding classified and impossible to model like F-35, Raptor etc.) Only Phantom left.

  • So what after the F-4? Is Phantom going to be the last plane for DCS by ED? No, they will be modeling single role planes.

    Agree 100%



    3rd paries are smaller issue here F-14, Viggen, Mirage 2000 etc. are 1980s/1990s variants....

  • For real life training dogfights and direct comparition between F-16 and F/A-18 check C.W. Lemoine "Mover" channel. He flew both types.

    IIRC what he told was F-16 easily outrates and outaccelerates the Hornet. Marking he was flying F-16C Block 30, lighter and more maneuverable...

  • Exactly, all of them MiG-29, Su-27, F-15 had similar A-G capabilities - only most rudimentary unguided weapons.

    Would someone say not to make full fidelity MiG-29 or Su-27 because they are single role? Yes they are single role just like 95% of other planes.

    Following this line...

    1980s are not MiG-21.
    1980s are MiG-29, MiG-31, Su-27, F-14, F-15, F-16, F/A-18, Mirage 2000, Viggen.

    1980s barely even exist in DCS? The whole FC3 flayable planes - MiG-29, Su-25, Su-27, Su-33, F-15C, A-10A - and nearly all DCS assets are from 1980s/1990s, AI planes, ground units...

  • F-16 radar wasn't able to guide Sparrow.
    The only variant of F-16 able to fire Sparrow was specially modified F-16A ADF with radar modified to guide Sparrow missile and two under wing racks modified to carry Sparrows and it's electronics - this variant was used only in small numbers by US dir...

  • If spAMRAAM is boring and guns only not realistic - play 1980s with skill based SARH + dogfights with AIM-9/guns.

    For me I would rather have the opposite - mission maker allow only one realistic livery for the whole squadron just with different tail numbers.

    Instead of rainbow unicorns, black 'dangerous killers', pink troll paintings, 'scarry' dragon scale etc.

    Some small painting below...

  • Another thing is we don't have the most produced C variant dogfighter Block 30 many real pilots were acustomed with this one (i.e. C.W. Lemoine), but half ton heavier ground attack SEAD Block 50.

    Block 50 having very similar GE engine was half ton heavier, new avionics and reinforced structure...

    Unfortunately the wing in naval 29K variant needed to be enlarged which increased drag, especially drag in turn, and decreased acceleration and sustained turn rate. It also reduced maximum speed. MiG designers tried to use original high performance wing but it proved to be to small for low speed aircraft...

    Does it mean MiG-21, Viggen, F-14, F-5 etc. are unacceptable? If they would be able to model 9.12 - it's great.

    (BTW. MiG-29K - overweight naval variant with enlarged low landing speed wings is not particular performer with all kinematic parameters and maneuverability worse then 9.12)...

    MiG-29K - naval varian - was heavier and - to land savely on carrier - it had increased wings and drag, it had degraded performence, especially acceleration and sustained turn rate.

    MiG-29M 'Fulcrum-E' - multirole variant - had massive mass gain of 2300 additional kilograms empty mass,...

    Some ED guys need to look at that, because it's implementation may not be easy or straightforward.
