Default Summer 2018: The Turkey vs. the Bug: Who is Going to Win

So we will soon have these two beautiful birds in the DCS skies.

Who is going to win??

My prediction, the ratio of F-18's vs. F-14's players is going to be 10:1.

The death/loss ratio, on the other hand, is going to be the other way around ...

Ha!

Yes, I was actually considering adding the Viggen, the Harrier, and the Gazelle (mistral), because I have not doubt that, properly used, these would swat improperly-used a/c from the skies like drunken flies whether or not it is the F-14 or the F-18 or even an F-22!

Well if we were to get a JA 37 then that would be the Obvious choice
Especially if it was a JA 37D then it would sweep the skies clear .

Can’t rule the skies if your runway is cratered.

It's called a "deck".

And you cannot crater it until you get through the CAP(s).



(and the Tico's, and the CIWS's, but I doubt the Tomcats will let any crumbs fall from the table ...)

That might be why it has STOL capabilities.
