  • I was taking this bug into context with EDs complete disregard of non-NATO equipment in DCS. We arent getting any modern units or missiles, even AI, while the blue side and hoggit make one post, and get everything they ask for.

    We cant even get a simple bug fixed that requires nothing but...

    These first few prototypes never made it into service. The MiG-29M/K that got into service in the 2000s, after it got more funding, had a much much improved radar (Zhuk-ME) over MiG-29S, with ability to engage 4 targets at once, much much better fuel endurance (closer to an F-16/18 ), Link16 tier datalink...

  • Because ED has decided that DCS is a NATO only simulator.

    I remember a bug with the MiG-29 RWR that made it invisible for an entire year (making the Fulcrum useless). Turns out that exactly what i thought happened - they had it fixed for months, but only implemented it with the MiG-29 FM...

    If ED ever puts that on the "planned" list, sure. But they never mentioned it at all. And until they do, the priority must be a modern fighter that can compete with the existing and upcoming modern NATO planes, that means F-16, F-18, F-15E, Eurofighter.

    A mix between low and full...

    The R-77 and R-27ER are superior to AIM-54 within 10-15km. Surviving until then is not much of an issue, IF you have a GCI handholding you and informing you of the exact position of F-14. You 100% rely on that GCI to tell you which aircraft is of what type, since all your garbage soviet RWR will say...

    In the specific matchup against a 90s tomcat, if it was modelled properly in terms of EW etc. (which it isnt), a 29S MIGHT be ok if ED goes through the effort of reworking GCI entirely.

    Against everything else, 29S is unacceptable. Unless the opposition has no Link16 (so just Multiplayer...

    The MiG-29 can be a match for an F-14 with equal numbers, but you need:
    - A more modern MiG-29 variant than the A, at least S
    - Properly modelled GCI/Lazur Datalink
    - Properly modelled F-14 missiles and EW resistance of radar

    People are not going to buy a fighter module...

    No one restricts loadouts. People wanting all toys are coming in, the ones that did support restrictions are leaving.



    The best funded AI in the world can barely win in guns only BFM. There is no way ED can make a dynamic, intelligent AI GCI choosing to make the MiGs do...

    https://forums.eagle.ru/attachment.p...6&d=1603062188 As long as this is a thing, no dynamic campaigns involving russian 4th gens can be made.

    Modern russian fighters arent symmetric either. They put IRST on every plane, are datalinked with just about every ground...

    If they stick with that, DCS is 100% ****ed. This logic doesnt make sense for russian modules, since the truly interesting stuff can only be made in FC3.

    And frankly, with more technology comes more depth, regardless what modelling standard. The simplified Su-25T, with its TGP features,...

  • Check the tacview/track in the original post. Its an ADS with an S-300 covered by SA-15, and SA-11 surrounding it. A single F-18 kills them all, after having just turkey shot all enemy CAP on its own. It ends up gunning everything on the airport that this massive set of units is supposed to protect....

    Wrong. They cant do a full fidelity one. They HAVE to make AI variants (as my track above showed) and give us simplified FC3 ones.



    When i replace even 2 of those planes by F-16, i suddenly am no longer able to pull this off. Because the fuel and missiles needed, assuming i...

    The problem here are the available russian/chinese AI units. We dont have the ones that are needed. Check the tacview. An Su-30K will not be able to destroy 4 F-18s, a patriot and roland sites all on its own. Improving the AI can only do so much, but will not solve the issue of post 2000s low RCS weapons...

    Here is an attempt to create a challenging mission. A single F-18 just kills everything, including 4 Su30 and an S300 site+SA15 escorts in one sortie. No support, no tactics.

  • DCS 2000s scenarios for F-16 and F-18 impossible


    I tried to recreate the Russian main Airbase in Syria, using the 80s equipment DCS offers instead of the modern systems that are required.

    The result - A single F-18 on its own with no AWACS or any other support:
    - Shoots down 4x the best russian fighters offered in DCS, early...

    While our F-14 is from the 1990s and the F-15 carries the 2000s AIM-120C, i agree. And so Multiplayer sticks to NATO vs NATO 2000s, while in Singleplayer or PVE Multiplayer, people just turkey shoot these 80s systems. No one restricts weapons and avionics accordingly. As such, any MiG-29 or Su-27 module...

    A short range maneuvering engagement above 0.5 miles will be fought with all missiles. Heaters will be flared, but an AIM-120 will force you to notch, give up initiative and most likely kill you. And a MiG-29A can not win that against anything past the 90s, even from an offensive position as you suggest....

    No need. Half the stuff in DCS isnt modelled exactly as the real thing, we just need an authentic model of the planes and weapons the capabilities of which make sense within their timeframe.



    I assume by dogfight you mean general air to air.

    No, it cannot....
