DCS : F4U-1 Corsair
Well, someone actually had to get the ball rolling;-P And I wanted to :thumbup:



I have to admit, I was almost sure it was going to be the Corsair, but today let's say 85% of my dream came true, nothing official yet but intimately convinced there'll be a Corsair...



This thread would be a Corsair general discussion, all variants included.

The Bent Wing, no one can be indifferent about it, you love it, you hate it ... It's not only the Baa Baa Black Sheep workhorse, even if in our minds it stays so, the Chance Vought F4U Corsair got a great life through the years.



She's brutally powerful, she's fast, she's aggressive and she's just awesome...
This inverted Gull Wing configuration , with high torque radial engine spinning a huge three or four bladed Constant Speed prop just did marvels,
one of the fastest of the WWII, and even after...

Great performances, more than sufficient payload including unguided rockets, HE Bombs, Napalm and fuel tanks. A good lad for former CAS and strafing runs on convoys, trains or infantry.



Now, let's share our thoughts, hopes and wishes ( while trying not to make this thread a bin ) and feelings about this mighty airframe

We are little black sheep. Who have gone astray ...




Have a good evening dudes !

LN, here's my credit card, take it!!! Whistling Death, yes! :thumbup:

Hopefully it will be the F4U-4 seeing as the other WW2 prop jobs we have atm are late war as well.

Maybe in the future, but the Steam list says F4U-1 - unless there is more to the story. :)

Will be interesting to see how the carriers are incorporated!

Cunctator 12-06-2015 08:31 PM

It should be a no brainer for them to make the F4U-4 or other late variants in future, personally I hope to see the F4U-5N one day. A lot of work can be reused and it would work well with the existing Sabre and Mig-15. I actually expected the F4U-4 first since it was used both in late WW2 and Korea, and shared its power plant with the F4U-7 that could be used on the possible Vietnam or Middle East map.

Hueyman 12-06-2015 08:40 PM

Yup, I couldn't agree more.

I admit I'm a tiny little bit disapointed of the -1, would love a 4 bladed one, but I'm sure if it's a great success, paid upgrades like half or one third of the price could bring these variants improvements, still I'm pessimistic since it never happened before ( only one strict variant for each module, even no tries for closest variants ... )

Hueyman 12-06-2015 08:41 PM

And see that board above... F4U-4 reaches Mach 0.6, nice eh ?!

greco.bernardi 12-06-2015 08:50 PM

will be the first radial engine in DCSW!
as Leatherneck news has said..... New or unique methods of propulsion or force distribution

Will be great fun to put this bird down on a carrier - not to mention cruising the pacific.
