Question Should I get this plane on preorder, or the Mirage on sale half off?

Which one should I get? I have enough money for either.

Only you can answer that... sure we can throw opinions out there (and I am sure you're about to get a lot of them)... entirely up to you though...

Once the Viper is released onto EA it will be full price for at least a year, as happened with the Hornet .. while the Mirage will be on discount on every future sale. So, I would go with the Viper now and save 20% and then purchase the mirage on the winter sale.

If you want a modern, more complete aircraft, you better safe for the JF-17.

Otherwise... It depends what you want to do.

I tend to buy modules directly from ED. When making changes to DCS-World, you can be sure that they will be adapting their modules to the new versions. I am not so sure about third party vendors (see VEAO with their Hawk).

That doesn't mean that I like no third party modules at all. Just take a look at my signature.

How is the Jf-17 a more complete aircraft than the F-16c?

Well, if you ask the person who posted it, they'll tell you it's more complete because it has an A/G Radar.

Back on topic, I agree with the comment earlier about the fact that the F16 will not be on sale again for AT LEAST a year, while the Mirage will probably be on sale every time there is a sale.......

Assuming both will be released this autumn, The JF-17 will most likely have less systems missing/more features close to be complete than the F-16. That's what I ment.

The f-16 is a more capable aircraft than the mirage. I would buy the f-16 at current discount and buy the mirage later on sale. I would also get the f-18 before I got the mirage especially if it goes on sale.

My problem with the comments is this: based on what? How do we know the systems are even remotely realistic? Do the Devs have inside access to simulators/industry insiders/pilots that can verify accuracy? I'm skeptical of this module, since they could could implement whatever the hell they want, and nobody would be the wiser........

I admit a certain amount of bias against REDFOR, but nothing I have seen so far regarding the JF-17 makes me excited, nor confident that we are looking at any semblance of realism.

But hey, I'm also not a JF-17 expert, nor a software developer.........
