  1. No joke, what are the realistic chances of it getting a cockpit and becoming fly able? I know you guys are working on the intruder first, and rightly so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. As others have stated, it’s also one that actually saw combat. There are memoirs on its capabilities; and although I’m no expert, I’m reasonably sure the flight characteristics and engine capabilities are not far from A models (reliability and maintenance notwithstanding). One thing I’d like to see is the option for varying levels of engine life and reliability as with the mi-8. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. @lcabc888Is this your mod? If not, can you let the developer know the following: early thoughts: very much version 0.1, but a promising start. Lots of not done or incomplete texturing. Issues to be fixed before its flyable: Trim buttons need to be able to be set up. aircraft is very twitchy and has a tendancy to nose down an auto-start or a 'how to startup' would be nice. the B/N seat position is currently about 4 foot lower than it should be Also, when using the 'VR spyglass zoom' function, it instantly CTDs. make sit hard to read the switches and start figuring things ou
  4. The drum thingy is a rotary drum filled with the memory for DIANE’s software, the insides are made of core-rope technology; the same stuff the Apollo Computer was used, and something that at the time Grumman was quite familiar with. It would spin so that the head could access it, in much the same way a hard drive spins; but obviously at a bigger scale! Giving the drum a little “percussive maintenance “ would work if the reason the system had halted was down to the drum itself no longer spinning - maybe it got stuck or caught up on something. I’m pretty sure it would make the B/N feel better t
  5. Yes, but the systems demonstrated in the video are from the 80s, as far as I’m aware the symbology on the -A was similar, by the radars were not solid state and a little more unreliable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What I like about that video above is the demonstration of the ground avoidance system. Drawing the radar returns on the VDI like that for something from the 60s... impressive! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Great picture! And yes, I was expecting a modex of 505 but to be honest it doesn’t much matter - it’s still an awesome bird! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wonder if we will hear The AI B/N hum “Downtown” after weapon hit on target? BTW, I’m still going to call him Morg. Original and best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. In the long term, you can have a Viggen beginning the picture with ELINT pod, the A6 doing the Radar-Scanning for surface mapping or poor-weather reconnaissance, and the onde day we will get the F14 to do TARPS. Maybe if there was a way to copy the results to the kneeboard as per the Viggen, and then for multiplayer purposes, pass the photo to a file and allow your virtual squadron to read the “take” from the shots presented. BDA, reconnaissance etc is doable as long as there’s a means to easily grab and share the pictures/slides taken. Think like the video export facility for the F14’s LANTI
  10. I think it actually would have had longer time on station, the only reason the KA-6 was ditched is because they were done for and they didn’t want to have another round of life extension on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My understanding is that it orbited the carrier and was there to keep those in orbit overhead topped up, and to prevent anyone from being fuel starved Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. They can start with the -E, and move on to other models later. I personally think modelling the -A would be cooler, but am realistic in that the -E will probably get initial treatment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. As wierd as it sounds, I’d love to at least have the option to fly the Tanker variant. Imagine having to come and catch a navy buddy stuck on fumes by leaving your tanker track and going and getting them. Imagine the challenge of having to maintain a speed and attitude to keep the aircraft steady, or helping a greenhorn by changing speed slightly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I hadn’t meant to quote a movie. It was more intended to be a reference to the events leading to Morg’s exit from the book ;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Someone can voice Morg, as long as he says something along the lines of “man hope we don’t catch a golden BB today” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
