Also, the Tucano has an empty weight of abouts 7,000lbs, compared to 7,500 for the P-51D, with a similar wingloading between them. Both aircraft also have a similar max takeoff weight of around 12,000lbs.

The one place where the Tucano suffers compared to the Mustang is in-built weapons, sporting only a pair of .50cal guns to the Mustang's six-pack, though the Tucano can also sling additional .50's and 20mm gunpods. This all assumes a straight gunfight of course.

on par? not at mid to high altitudes. top speed on the mustang is also faster. adding gunpods on the tucano for underwing mounts will make it heavier and decrease its turn radius.

Besides thats the ww2 stang. Post ww2 variations of the P51 and Corsair like the P51H, and the F4u5 are Super props if you will.

While I agree that old warbirds will most likely be better in performance anyway, Super Tucano does not necessarily need gunpods: unlike Tucano, the Super Tucano has a couple .50 cals in its wings.

It has a pair .50 cal MG's in it, though I know we are talking hypothetically so why not just bring some heat seakers along with you anyway? I'm curious just to see how this plane will survive in a modern simulation environment. I can defintely see people doing crazy low attacks with this aircraft in MP

It's not an A-10.. in fact it's even slower and has one engine only. So the survivability won't be the bast. If the A-10 wasn't design to operate with threats like SAMs (radar) and air threats, imagine the ST... which was design as a counter insurgency aircraft.

Don't expect the ST to do what the A-10 does, you'll mostly be doing CAS and similar tasks.

One thing I think will be cool is the fact that we will have multicrew, therefore the mission load can be distributed, two brains are usually better than one! :D

Great Plane ! But in case of SAM, Manpads and Self propelled Air Defence its difficult to survive

As a DCS: WWII "prophead" , I am quite hyped for this aircraft! This looks like an instant-buy for me, so far!

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.

I did not read all posts in this thread... still I dare to ask! :D

Will a civilian/trainer version available too? I'm not too much
into military stuff.

there is no civilian variant of the EMB-314, you might be talking about the EMB-312 (T-27), which was canceled, and A-29B took its place. :)

But hell yeah, the A-29B can and will be used as a trainer, and it does that VERY well!

What are the similarities of the aircraft being developed with the Pilatus PC-9/A?
