A bit OT, sorry, but how about a Bf-109F4 or G8, and an FW-190A-5? The K4 has got to be the ugliest of the 109s, and the Dora was really only used to defend the 262s...

(half roll, unload, accellerate out of the fight ;^)

C'mon, they are all fun to fly!

From the newsletter...

"New aircraft damage model systems. This new system will be based on a much more precise system of positional agregats within an aircraft structure such that it will give players a new level of realistic air combat damage modeling- especially with machineguns. Because this system will dramatically change simulation balance, the system will be released for all World War II planes simultaneously."

I wonder if this will give us a new and updated P-51D model.

A lot of people either forget, or don't know about never wanting to fly (actually, I meant fight) with fuel in the center tank of the 51. It throws the CG back and it departs a lot more easily than if you didn't have that weight there. Having said that, the P 51 we have has all that IFF/radio equipment AND the center fuel tank there. It really throws the CG off and it flies like a pig. I won't go into the MP and fuel, but what I mentioned is huge and a reason the 51 here doesn't perform as well as it should.

P51 perform very well in DCS, my favourite of all Prop planes.
DCS is only another game but with better cockpits.
Many things are NOT simulated like they let us think after reading all these hundreds of pages manuals ;-) or only in a simple way, like overheating or damage model, or different bullet rounds.
DCS becomes more and more a civil flightsim with the ability of shot something around ;-)
i dont care much anymore because it seems to me they overcoded the old LockOn engine and it get worse with every new model. Now with the SPit the Propellerscircle disappears often in P51, BF109 or 190 and it sucks.

I dont like how they are making another mustang.
Seems like the whine is real and people will keep whining until they get the mustang which is better then a bf109 which is quite sad. They are wasting time with it.

It will not be 'better' than the 109, don't worry you will still have a UFO advantage over the allied aircraft.

It will be an update from pacific theatre mustang to a western front theatre....& unfortunately it won't make a huge difference to the status quo.

That will hopefully come with an improved damage model.

I don't think the 109 has an UFO advantage...unless you are talking about the AI of course. It does.

If we get proper MP limits and a proper DM I'm sure the Mustang will perform very, very well against even the 109 K. If people expect it to be a great dogfighter - which it wasn't - then they will always be disappointed.

At least it will be more indicative of the relative performance between the Mustang and the 109. And enable p51 players more option when in combat.

Lot of good points in here. Nobody is asking for parity just for game play's sake. We could all be flying War Thunder for that. I think most just want more options to tweak the online match ups. In the absence of mutliple a/c variants I think minor tweaks could be an effective compromise. If a real world crew chief could pull the center tank, IFF and Detrola, why can't that be an option (however negligible an advantage that would be)?

I for one would simply welcome period appropriate G-Suit. While waiting for the new and improved DM, that right there would go a long ways to giving the P-51 a greater edge during portions of the engagement.

(also at least a period appropriate pilot!)
