Actual Numbers recorded RL in Flight Config as above :

Straight and Level 85%N2

3 Deg Glideslope On Speed :82-83% N2, Fuel Flow 3000Lbs per Hour per Engine

In the Dev Version:

Straight and Level : 87% N2 Fuel Flow 4300Lbs Per Engine

3 Degree Glide Slope : 83% N2 Fuel Flow 3100Lbs Per Engine.


So as you can see the coders have done a great job as we are seeing Real world numbers.

Also Skate or any Official Personnel ,

Can we get this confirmed as there is conflicting information provided

It was not listed in the DCS 2.5.2.19641 Open Beta Update 7 nor DCS 2.5.2.19682 Update 7 Hotfix patch notes
IvanK says it was not in the patch
Chizh says it was included in the weekend news




Happy Simming,
Monnie
