Default Engine Smoke

Is it my imagination or do the Hornet engines smoke like crazy recently ??

Levels of engine smoke I am seeing currently are something I would only recently I have only previously seen on aircraft like the Mig29 and similar ?

You're not imagining things, that's actually a thing in DCS currently. I hope they'll fix it soon.

Funny you randomly get huge clouds of smoke while parked and idling.

It seems me engine performance at 20+k angels is lesser these days in general as well, but I am going to compare that against stable before I go spouting those stories as fact ?

It seems to be random, i was flying at 22k about 95% looked back over my shoulder at my wingman and noticed i was leaving a thick black trail behind me..didn`t touch the throttle and it cut out a few seconds later.

Yeah. Boeing ran out of F404s and started installing RD-33s on some of those hornets, apparently.

Engine smoke was fixed in the last patch, if you still think it is heavy attach a short track and your dcs log and we will take a look.

thanks
