  1. this is a fictional livery based off of the fictional MiG-28 from the movie top gun. I like to imagine this is a modern version of the MiG-28, a MiG-28SM. it carries anti-ship moosles which the F-5, the orignal base for the MiG 28 can't, which is why i think it would be more appropriate to use the Jf-17. anyway enough talk let's see some pictures I'll be sure to update this post with a link to the user files once it is approved Livery is approved on userfiles https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314389/
  2. oh ok i understand now, honestly i prefer how it is now but i can see why one would want the pylons
  3. empty pylons? do you mean like empty fuel tanks or that there not be a pylon if nothing is equipped?
  4. The Hongdu JL-8 (Nanchang JL-8), also known as the Karakorum-8 or K-8 for short, is a two-seat intermediate jet trainer and a light attack aircraft designed in the People's Republic of China by China Nanchang Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation. The JL-8 / K-8 cockpit arrangement is designed to be as close to that of a combat aircraft as possible. A transparent plastic canopy covering both cockpits, which are arranged in a tandem seating position, is supposed to give a good all-round field of view. A Rockwell Collins Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) is fitted, with multi-function displays (MFDs) in the front and rear cockpits showing information to the pilots. The emergency cockpit escape system is made up of two Martin-Baker MK-10L rocket-assisted ejection seats which are zero-zero capable, meaning they can be used safely at zero altitude and zero speed. Although JL-8 is designed to have limited capability to deliver air-to-ground weapons, the first rocket attack practice was only completed in May 2011.[6] Ultra high frequency (UHF) and very high frequency (VHF) radio communication systems are present, along with a Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN) and automatic direction finder (ADF). An instrument landing system (ILS) is also available. These systems can be tailored to meet the requirements of the customer. (copied from wikipedia) the K-8 is used by multiple countries as trainers and for aerobatics and it has some light ground attack capabilities. it has the capability to be something interesting for the Chinese side of DCS, and it's not as far fetched as some of the other ideas presented (*cough* J-15 *cough*). furthermore it shouldn't take too long to develop considering it doesn't have the complex systems that surround many combat aircraft. in terms of why i'm interested in it, just look at this cockpit! but also it would provide an excellent intro for new players to dcs and old alike, especially for those who like to fly redfor. and for old players can be a good challenge to master it's ground attack capabilities. deka has probably already reached a conclusion on what module to develop now, but maybe have this as the next one after that? here are some pictures of the K-8 in service with other countries. another option i would consider are some helicopters my first option would be the Ka-29 based off of the Ka-27 this helicopter is in use both with the russian and chinese navies as naval born anti-sub and assault helicopters also capable of transporting troops, it would allow for a whole new area of ops (naval helicopter ops) and I think it has the potential to be a best seller. here's a screenshot i took with the current AI Ka-27 in dcs https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/230697357501661194/796794176993755220/DCS_2021-01-07_16-22-16.png my second option would be the Mi-2 Hipolite https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ca/Mil_mi-2(modified).jpg as a friend of mine put it, it's a baby Mi-8!
  5. OK fixed the bug, it's a result of the use of MFD mods, so if you have any of those you have to remove them
  6. hello it's on the userfiles now, link in the OP
  7. Hello! i've updated the livery with some key improvements and it will be on the userfiles shortly.
  8. press HNS on the UFC turn it to INS + GPS press rtn, HNS light is on
  9. Everyone's saying i have to turn on the HNS to correct for drift, but For me itjust breaks the INS for lack of a better term, it puts me in places i am not on, and turning it off gets it working again but then my weapons miss by quite a bit, what's happening?
  10. hello chuck! i'm wondering if updating your Jf-17 guide with all the new stuff is your next project?
  11. for me HNS just messes things up
  12. MP saves tracks automatically, i've noticed this too, i always wondered why that's happening
  13. I invite you to the Livery artwork group, we can help you learn how to make liveries, and i can help you with the template if you encounter anything https://discord.gg/27PYx3WazP
  14. I can do both Mirage V and Mirage 2000, it doesn't really matter. I saw the Mirage V scheme at the aviation museum in cairo
  15. i was thinking of doing the Radome on the Jf-17 black, i think i found good reason too btw are you egyptian?
  16. Jf-17 livery has been approved on the user files https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314085/ Hello matte! Could you please link some reference images? I'll try and get it done as well
  17. for me once i press fly dcs crashes, do you want the log or something?
  18. Hello! I am working on a fictional Egyptian Air force livery for the Jf-17 using the template I developed with Cookiemonster. it's partially inspired by the F-16s currently in service with the EAF, here's to hoping that we'll see this in real life soon™. I plan to follow this up with several more Egyptian schemes for most of the aircraft we have in dcs, if you have any recommendations please report in the comment below with a picture! here are some teaser screenshots: Best of luck! --Kerbo Edit: it has been approved for the user files link below: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314085/
  19. here's a version with AAR https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3307264/ EDIT: NVM ignore me
  20. i know this is old, but i have been having this same problem even when just loaded with 2x R-60s 2x Kh-66 and 800kg fuel tank
