Heh, better hope you fire half of them off before you get to the merge.

Yeah - as far as I can gather, a dual AMRAAM pylon assembly weighs something like a 1000 pounds each.

Well, this is where the "game balance" concern gets answered for all the people that somehow manage to not regard DCS as a sim.


Bluefor is being handicapped by enabling a loadout that provides an irresistible temptation for many players to try dogfighting with as much mass and drag as they can possibly pile onto their plane.


It should be a godsend for Redfor flyers, . . .


as soon as they manage to break the habit of trying to superglue extra R-27 ER/ETs onto their Sukhois.

LAU-115C+Dual LAU-127 = 294 lbs

So all of that weighs as much as a Phoenix missile.

if you want to go that route,

you forgot the weight of the SUU-79, and the AIM-120C Warheads

So:

1x SUU-79 = 350
1x BRU/32 = 79
1x LAU-115C = 120
2X LAU-127A = 87 * 2 = 174
2x AIM-120C = 348 or 356 w/ Warhead depending on Block, we'll assume Block IV or Newer so 356 * 2 = 712


So, Grand total Of: 1435 lbs

So what?
Can't the LAUs be jettisoned if needed?
With a2a refueling available it is still easily doable in DCS. Even for the trolling joy of it...
Noone will chew your ass if you dump a boatload of expensive missiles in a sim.
