The JF17 wasn't the most advanced jet. The only feature thats more advanced about the JF17 relative to F16/F18 is just larger cockpit displays and IR Missle warning system.

otherwise the JF17 was behind in radar range ( max range at 80 NM relative to 160 Nm) and does not have JHMCS + AIm9X equivalents. IT also has smokey engine ( IRRC copy of mig29 engine) , and not as good T/W ratio as you'd expect for such a lightweight fighter.


the EF ( especially if its tranche 2) will in fact be all around the most advanced and arguably best A2A platform in DCS.

even a Tranche 1 block 5 will blow everything we have right now completely out of the water when it comes to A2A. Reading the wiki page is scary. RWR that can measure the distance to the enemy & launch AMRAAMS without a radar lock, IRIS-T 360 degree capability guided by the RWR, a very good radar coupled with insane T/W ratio, maneuverability, supercruise and the DASS protection system..

They didn't say they are modelling a German Typhoon though, just that the developement lead is German.


edit: I Just saw the screenshots, indeed it's a German one (at least the model shown so far). Well, gotta give -some- advantage to the poor Flanker drivers...

But great news, anyways - we will get the most modern aicraft for DCS till now. A modern, multirole aircfaft from our EU. Cool! :)

Just to clear up a couple of misconceptions. The RAF declared a autonomous initial A/G capability shortly after Exercise Green Flag 2008 using Tranche 1 Blk 5 with Litening 3 LDPs and Paveway 2 (1000lb bombs). It was also capable of dropping 1000lb free fall bombs. It normally self-lased but did practice buddy lasing.

I know this because I was there.

Yes General purpose For the UK version but not German one apparently . As for self designation of LGB's with a TGP can the same be verified for Luftwaffe within the same time frame ?( which is the version being focused on for now). IT also depends on which time period the source publications or revisions are able to be found.


as an Analogy Remember than F/A18C lot 20 in 1998 had different capabilities then the circa 2005 model we have in dcs, or if to compare hypothetical compare Lot 20 hornet to more recent timeframe , ( IE as an example only using older Litening 2 AT instead of newer Litening 2 G4 issued since 2008 )

There's also a difference in how the Typhoon has been operated between the UK and Germany/Spain/Italy.

In UK service it replaced the Tornado fairly quickly, so the multi-role capability was needed earlier. Italy and Germany are still flying their Tornadoes; Italy is replacing them with the F35, and Germany is expected to replace them with a mix of Super Hornets/Growlers and Typhoons. I don't know about Spain but I imagine they have the Hornets for A2G stuff.
