  1. Thats the mid compressor bypass not simply switching the bleeds off.
  2. Ok, do you actually own the Tomcat yourself and have fired the 54? Just to be clear here.
  3. Please do. Should honestly just be a texture thing...
  4. I honestly think the gun in DCS sounds awesome and could give less of a damn whether it's accurate or not - I wouldn't know. There is no footage or HQ sound from the cockpit shooting the gun last time I checked and only former crew will be able to tell you. It's also called artistic freedom in sound design.
  5. RIP Snort, condolences to the family first and foremost.
  6. This is a joke of a statement if you have ever used the 54 yourself or done firing tests. The 54A and C are pretty much the easiest missiles to chaff out in DCS and this has been the case since the release of the Tomcat. Those ccm values in the .lua don't seem to have much of an impact on the new API by the looks of it. Let alone how the chaff mechanics in DCS work - it's basically a diceroll evry time you pop a chaff bundle with a certain probability coefficient. And how do you know what the CCM values need to be? Especially the 54C should simply ignore most chaff - it's more than twice as big in diameter than the AIM7 or AMRAAM with a ton more room for electronics and a much larger seeker dish. You have no idea what you are talking about here.
  7. Also has a different scale and EGT instead o TIT Not to mention the GE specific limitation markers.
  8. On another note - what is the stance / progress on adding white and properly labelled AIM54A's? I think those are pretty essential for the early A's and IRIAF cats in the future as well as for general coherence and visual distinction in the game.
  9. September patch at the earliest for Forrestal and EGT more than likely.
  10. Max main tire speed is 210kts, for the nosewheel it's 190kts. calculate your takeoff speed for your given weight and headwind component and rotate around 140-150kts depending on weight.
  11. Ok, thanks. I just found it weird to see the helmet rail fix mentioned in the changelog and then not actually seeing it in the files/in game. Something which I personally reported almost a year ago and was eager to see fixed, since the new pilot models are still ways out by the sound of it.
  12. Again, did any of the hotfixes make it into yesterday's hotfix? Texture issues in the cockpit and the helmet rail for example?
  13. Depends. It's multirole so very complex and a lot of weapon systems as well as employment methods to leard. If you take it step by step though I don't see why not. It should be fairly polished and out of EA relatively soon as well which is nice.
  14. You don't have the slightest clue what you are talking about. Go back to your airquake server.
  15. Is this regarding in-game? Have you *used* the AIM54 in DCS???
  16. Did any of the hotfixes make it into today's hotfix?
  17. By the way is the external model shown in the previews and trailer a placeholder and will be improved? I sure hope it can at least get the usual HB treatment to meet current standards.
  18. Maybe finish the Tomcat and Viggen first? No wonder everything is this delayed lately...
  19. It doesn't take a day (it requires a new 3d model as well as the gauge internals are different and digital) but this shouldn't have taken 2+ years for sure. Pretty essential item for the B. Same as the untextured TCS internals and additional LAU-7 pylons or lack of the ECM bulges/fairings since release.
  20. Basically, get your s*** together, Heatblur. Literally just hire someone who does project management for a living. This is not ok and most customers had all the patience imaginable with yall.
  21. Hopefully the helmet rail texture fix too since that apprently didn't actually make it in
