Love the "Check master arm" at 4:07 then seeing the gun cross appear a second later. Would have been a shame to MEZ pen only to go through dry because you were on...

I don't see any reason for them to use the -220 vs. the -229. I think most of the DCS community would ditch the module if they had a jet that refuses to go supersonic under 30,000ft (unless it's the...

Please realize that not all missiles are launched to down an enemy aircraft. An AIM-120, AIM-54, etc. isn't always launched for the exact purpose of hitting the enemy. a .5pk for a missile means...

Usually the targets will have mensurated category I coordinates (0-6m accuracy) so you can just use that as the designation. Realize that other things can effect this (such as GPS jamming) which...

Any idea if it is certified for the approaches requiring glidepath assistance (LPV) that allows you to go down to 200' mins?

I foresee most military aircraft upgrading to RNAV in the near future....

My experience is F-15E side. Our equivalent is the SIT page.
You scale the SIT page for what you're doing, it has some nice HOTAS so you can scale in and out, change the focus, etc. while you're in...

You might damage them enough to be combat ineffective, but GP bombs are not at all designed to kill tanks. A 500lbs bomb might not kill a truck if it misses by a few meters and the truck gets lucky...

Ah, I think the VSRD is our "attack display." It is basically that that top down view pie format. You can use either that or the normal b-scope we're all used to. I don't know anyone who uses the...

M56 (M50 series) is a kinda low velocity high explosive incendiary (HEI) ammo. Good for air to ground because it doesn't penetrate too low into the ground before exploding, bad for air to air.

This is exactly how I feel. All of DCS "realism" as far as air to air goes is just to make it a game. DCS air to air priority is to make things even. The priority isn't to make it realistic combat.

Dodging an SA-15 from 8 miles isn't that difficult... You could probably just turn away instead of doing a full up SAM threat reaction.

I guess it is more situation dependent than I meant earlier....

If this guy's missiles are going to be directly implemented into DCS, that just makes me more excited about the F-14. Finally missiles that work outside of 6 miles.

I believe it means nothing. These both make differences for real life things but it is likely that it won't matter in game, ever. Missiles have never and likely will never be given realistic emphasis...

Classified docs aren't an issue for a realistic AMRAAM? Or are you trying to say something else? If you meant the former, it's pretty safe to say you're wrong.
