Pucara would be an instant buy for me and such a great asset for the South Atlantic map

I can't see why this would take priority over something like an A-6 or Bronco as the next big thing in DCS World - not that the project is proceeding anyway. But of all the world's combat aircraft that could be modeled, one that has never been in a proper war, only an undeclared "conflict" that was over very quickly - albeit with a lot of casualties - is rather strange to suggest the Pucara given what else is out there.

Pardon, but what conflicts did the AT-6 serve in so far? And while the Bronco has seen war, it was a FAC aircraft, but not a full grown COIN aircraft like the Pucara. Could it be your British view on Argentinian things that blinds you a little bit here? No offence intended!

I vote yes. It deserves a site of its own in DCS, not only for what it represents, which is obvious, but also because it is a unique aircraft in its kind

I vote yes, with Kiowa Warrior inbound, Super Tucano, (Possible) OV-10 Bronco, and ED's own stated intention to add Technicals as assets, COIN operations will add new depth to scenarios in DCS that aren't "Massive 'First World Near-Peer' War" scenarios.

I mean lets be real, DCS is nowhere near being able to simulate Massive First world Near-Peer scenarios. Its already much close to a permissive or lightly contested air enviroment kinda thing right now, especially asset wise.

Personally I'm waiting for DCS predator edition... I might even get out of VR for that one

im curious what the results of this poll would be today in light of falklands map coming? seems this poll was run quite awhile ago. looks like an interesting/unusual plane that could be fun to fly, even if it did have a limited number of operators. i mean, if the CE2 can find a niche in DCS, i dont see why this couldnt

id vote yes, if the poll was still open. which its not. so i wont.

Yea, I voted no because I didn't know about the Falklands map being developed at the time. I did a quick goodgle and said "It's uglier than an A-10! Just make a Bronco, no thanks!" But I've changed my mind and would vote for it now.

While that was it's stated peacetime role, from what I gather abt it's Vietnam service, it did more than only FAC. I believe it did sometimes do CAS. Also, the night variant, the D model, did CAS / Interdiction at night, with FLIR and a 20mm gatling on an underside turret. I've also seen Bronco's delivering small teams by parachuting out the back, be they sniper teams, FAC ground teams, or special forces.
