Default G-Warm up

"G-Warmup is actually modelled in DCS. Without it the pilot starts to blackout at some 6Gs, and with it at 7.7Gs. Extremely useful when it comes to ACM or even BVR missile evasion. To achieve, just pull Gs for a dozen or two seconds."

Is this true?

Seen that comment on Hoggit pertaining to the vid from Mover and Wags flight.

It is true. A rudimentary G-warm up is modeled.

I've tested this after I kept almost G-LOCing when practicing SHB carrier recoveries and on the initial merge during BFM at around 6Gs in the Hornet.

If you do a couple 4-6G warmups prior to a max G turn you have about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes after the G warmup where you can complete a max G turn without G-LOC. In my testing, if, after the warmup, you wait more then 2 minutes, you'll once again G-LOC under max G (around 6Gs in the Hornet).

*I've only tested this in the Hornet.

Nice, that's awesome. Can't wait to try it out.

Very nice post, thanks! Obviously know that this is crucial in real life, but didn't think that the sim modeled that trait. Bravo for disclosing this information, just tried it and can confirm that I noticed the difference as well.

Guess it's worth continuing to practice real life maneuvers.

Cheers,

Don

Didn't know that either. Now it would be nice if we had fatigue as well

@Eldur: When doing a proper preflight and coordinate typing etc the fatigue is modeled in front of the computer
