Lightbulb DCS Warthog 2 System Upgrade wish list

The more I’ve thought about it since ED announced the upcoming A-10C 2 and based on the current version being a hybrid of suite 3 and 5 I’ve concluded that we won’t ever get a pure suite in the A-10C. That being said, some of the things that have come out in the real jet (suite 5 to suite 9) here are some of the things I hope we get.

Just like the original release of DCS A-10C I am willing to help ED make DCS A-10C 2 the best possible product it can be!!

Before people start giving the normal response; YES I know what we actually get in the updated module is contingent on what documentation ED is allowed to have and what systems the USAF says they can release to the public.

Added 13 April 2020: Reference pictures supplied in support of A-10C 2 development can be downloaded here.

Items that will make me purchase Day 1:
  • Flaps aren’t drooped (lowered) on a cold start jet (reported as a bug when I was still an ED Tester)
  • Nose wheel doesn’t drift to the right on its own with no hydraulic power (reported as a bug when I was still an ED Tester)
  • Fix wind milling engine producing 3,000 psi for hydro (already provided data why this is a bug currently)
  • True Mission Planner with Data Transfer Cartridge (DTC) functionality. The ability before getting in the jet to (in both SP and MP):
    - Plan mission data that feeds into the CICU, EGI, CDU and LASTE
    --Waypoints, flight plans, GPS almanac
    --JDAM info
    --CDU initialization file
    -- TAD profiles, TAD display settings, TAD map overlays
    --Threat data,
    --Weapons inventory and profiles
    --DataLink (SADL) configuration
    --Targeting Pod configuration
    --HMCS Profiles (if added)
    --ARC-210 configuration data (if added)
  • Proper EPLRS (SADL) integration with Link 16
  • Scorpion Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS) (would require cockpit model update)
  • Flashlight in cockpit (with white or green lighting)
  • Correctly modeled and interactive LASTE/HUD Preflight Bit check
  • Corrected/updated external 3d model
    -Remove the lift transducer from the right wing
    -Slats fully extend quickly under high AOA and then retract quickly when AOA is normal (currently they move up/down depending on AOA but don’t operate correctly; full up or full down)
    -Nose and Main Landing Gear struts have proper extension (currently nose strut sits to high and would damage internal components when nose wheel is turned)
    -External NVIS lights work
    -Remove Pave Penny Pod & Pylon
    -If OBOGS is added add vents
    -Covert/Overt landing & Taxi lights
  • Additional External Munitions
    -Laser Maverick (AMG-65E, AGM-65L)
    -APKWS Rockets
Nice to have additions:
  • Add missing TAD symbology
  • Fixed TAD Map/Range scales
  • Additional symbology in the HUD (SPI, Mark Points, etc)
  • ARC-210 (would require cockpit model update)
  • Updated DSMS functionality (profiles include weapon sleds)
  • Ability to send TGP images through Message Page
  • Replace LOX with OBOGS (not that big a deal but removes LOX usage limitation, would also require cockpit model update)
  • Working Manual Reversion
  • Additional External Munitions
    -GBU-54 (LJDAM)
    -Being able to choose CATM-9 or CAP-9 (model of CAP-9 3d model we use at Moody already exists in DCS you just can’t load it)
    -IR illumination Rockets & Flares

Why does this thread only have five stars?

Big +1 on the DTC functionality, its an essential.

That engine windmill generating hydrology pressure BS has long been reported and provided with proof of inaccuracy, yet still doesn't get fixed is beyond ridiculous.

what tgp would you suggest they add?

TGP config is under the data cartridge. I assume it would be preset options for LL/MGRS, Code, Latch, etc

@Snoopy, Nice list, and all good points.

Can you please clarify, though, whether you would buy that module on day one only if ALL of your day 1 items have been implemented or just ONE/ANY of those items?

I personally would buy on day 1 if I get the HMCS.

Great post, Snoopy. I especially like the bug fixes / corrections more myself than new added features,

It would be great if you could add these to your list:
