  1. Nice to see multiple variants being added to cover different timeframes :happy: Will there be earlier spec missiles for these? For example AIM-9G/H & AIM-7Es for the USN F-14A, and AIM-9J/P & AIM-7E for the IRIAF F-14A? Thanks
  2. Please implement a more modern graphical design / texture for this new software, like other forums do for example the Combat Ace community, War Thunder, IL-2 Sturmovik, Elite Dangerous forums.
  3. Some years ago you showed a preview of the ALR-45 that used a different type of display which is more advanced than this one you are presenting here but still not as good as the fully digital ALR-67 in the F-14B: Will this one still be available as an option or has it been rolled back in favour of the earlier spec? I would like to know more about these and how they were employed (if this later type was a later retrofit but only present in low numbers for example). Thanks.
  4. Marduk I think you are mistaking the Erhöhte Notleistung of the July '44 A-8 to the special boost the Jabo variants had (extra fuel injection allowing to have 1.65 ata in the first supercharger speed only), like the F-8. Both were different ways to achieve higher boost, the extra C3 fuel injection was for the Jabos for low altitude only, and the Erhöhte Notleistung worked for both low and mid altitudes but didn't require extra fuel injection, just increased manifold pressure as Yo-Yo said
  5. That data is from a Spitfire F Mk IX it seems, with Merlin 61. The Spit LF Mk IX with Merlin 66 would be at around 335 mph at sea level with +18 boost, also it's top speed is at around 23k feet, the chart you showed has a top speed at roughly 27k feet, compatible with the earlier F Mk IX with the less powerful higher altitude optimized Merlin 61. And that 350 mph Fw 190 A-8 value seems to be a 1.58/1.65 ata one with ETC bomb rack. DCS has the previous configuration with 1.42 ata. It also has it's top speed slightly below 20k feet, showing the boosted later settings, the earlier one has i
  6. Shouldn't it be doing closer to 555 without ETC? http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/fw190/fw190-a8-level-speed-13nov43.jpg
  7. For sea level, 15°C temperature and 1013,25 hPa pressure the speed with 1.42 ata, full closed shutters and ETC bomb rack should be around 530-540 km/h. Without the ETC bomb rack it should be 550-560 km/h. It is slow compared to the newer Allied fighters, very similar speed to the Spitfire LF Mk IX, but that one holds better acceleration, climb and maneuverability. So as I said in the dogfight thread the A-8 will be in a hard spot, specially against P-51. The Fw 190 was really good when it came out, but the A-8 is a decrease in performance because it has more drag and weight because of b

    A-8 should have a similar gunsight to the K-4 (standard gunsight without lead prediction)
  9. The Fw 190 got the 1.65 ata with C3 injection in the first supercharger speed for the Jabos initially (mid 1943 iirc), in the A-5/U17 which was later redesignated F-3 when mass produced in that configuration. The Jabo variants use this setting, extra boost (1.65 ata) for low altitudes (below 1000 meters) with C3 injection in the first supercharger gear, including the F-8. Later on the Fw 190 A-8 got in July 1944 a new engine setting, 1.58 ata for the first supercharger gear and 1.65 ata for the second supercharger gear, without C3 injection. Now looking at the DCS Fw 190 A-8 cockpit
  10. Buenas, no se como funciona en DCS. Pero sí, la 2060 es similar a la 1070Ti, y en esa gama de productos es de lo mejor en relación calidad/precio. La 2070 es significativamente más cara pero solo alrededor de 11% en promedio más potente dependiendo del juego. Si ahora tienes la 1060 según tu firma deberías notar una mejora sustancial en la mayoría de los juegos (no se el caso particular de DCS).
  11. They said they want to do planes for the map, but those will come after it and it's still a long term project, they will first make the planes they have announced so far. The planned planes would be the Sea Harrier FRS 1, Mirage III, Super Etendard and IA-58 Pucará.
  12. The 109 does have a constant speed propeller, but the automatic manifold pressure/RPM linkage means that different throttle settings have different RPMs. Say 1.15 ata with 2300 RPM, 1.3 ata with 2600 RPM and 1.42 ata with 2800 RPM in early 109G. So changing throttle should sound different. At a given throttle position the sound should be the same regardless of speed (only in very fast dives when the governor can't keep up or once the prop reached it's pitch limit and can't adjust anymore, then RPM will start to rise and you will notice sound change).
  13. For the A-8 and D-9 it doesn't affect that much because of the bulges housing the 13mm machine guns. In the D-9 and in other flight sims you can see even with the "compromise" frame size the mg bulges above it, so you would be looking at them rather than in front of the plane, if refraction was fully modelled.
  14. What's the MW 50 supply in the K-4? in the earlier 109s with the DB 605 AM engine it's around 27 minutes of supply IIRC Without MW 50, with B4 fuel the engine should get damaged quickly at the 1.8 ata regime. Btw the time limit system you mention has a bit of leeway which is randomized, up to 50% if you are lucky, so it isn't that bad imho.
  15. I think if you were to make an Argentine Skyhawk the A-4C with the retrofitted 5-pylons would be a nice choice.
  16. Yes, but looks like there isn't one of them coming any time soon. The F-5E will have to do, that's why I think it's sensible to have it restricted to ther rear-aspect missiles if you ask me (if MiG-19 vs F-5 is the main focus of the mission/server that is).
  17. It's also a bit too much to expect the MiG-19P to fight planes with all aspect IR missiles imho... If you want to recreate the gunfights and crappy missile combat there was in the 60s, no point in featuring the MiG-19 in a mission with all the toys available for the later planes.
  18. Afaik the EA didn't have RWR because it was intended as a pure interceptor guided by ground control radar operators, RWR wasn't considered needed for the Argentine Air Force in that context, the equipment was available for export, but they chose not to have it in the planes.
  19. The Argentine version of the Mirage IIIE (EA) didn't have RWR nor countermeasures either, btw. IIRC the only plane with that capability in the Arg side was the Super Etendard. Appart from the R.530 the EA also used Magic Is, the Dagger/M-IIICJ would use Shafrir 2s. How do these missiles compare to each other? Only thing I know is both are rear aspect, but I don't know which one is better.
  20. If it's going to be Mirage IIIE, then the be it the Mirage, but if it will be Mirage IIICJ, I would prefer the Dagger, for the sake of accuracy.
  21. Hopefully the WIP Mirage IIICJ gets converted to a EA ^^
  22. Is that an S variant? or is the radar bulge masked by perspective?
  23. Are you going to include an E version in the end alongside the CJ? Now there is A/G Radar technology available in the Viggen and also coming with the F-18. I hope they make the E as well :)
  24. Always loved the looks of the MiG-19, it's sleek with the high swept wings, but also kinda rugged with the wider fuselage in comparison to the single engine MiGs, also how it sits on the ground. I would describe it as beautiful and brutal, perfect for a combat plane :thumbup: I know they are J-6s but couldn't find many good quality images from actual MiG-19s in good conditions :(
  25. Why the Yak would be the worst combat aircraft in history ??
