Apart from other upgrades, one that is really necessary to be updated is the central line that separates the aircraft in two sides.

Hi guys!

Seems that this is a thread used for the F-5E updates...

I'd love to see the radar updated and AGM-65 Maverick added...

Northrop Grumman Photo of the F-5 below.

The DCS version has the V3 159 radar that doesn't have a video for the AGM 65 but I believe it would give the F-5E an extra point here on DCS.

Yeah,I think they’re going to keep it simple since they’re not going to make a lot of money on an update

See 2:10 in this video:

The Turkish F-5s are upgraded with F-16 avionics. They can drop CCIP-CCRP etc. They also have the same ICP panel with F-16. They can launch AMRAAMs and other fancy weapons with improved radar. You can think of them as F-16s in a different airframe.

Brazilian versions are even more modern from what I saw here. This is just too complicated inheritance and upgrade story.. Maybe after ED has no more planes or maps to model in 2040s, they will offer upgrade packs for our F-5s

Those are F-5A Freedom Fighters, not F-5E Tigers, and no, turkish Tigers cannot use the AMRAAM.

A panel doesnt mean they are the same, they are no where near an F-16's Capability Avionics wise.

Yes, my bad. They are slightly different in fuselage as well.

Again, likely would be just a graphics update, wouldnt expect any newer systems as the initial problem with documentation still hasnt been resolved afaik

for example, wood and fabric ww1 aircraft are much more complicated to simulate on the computer than they are to build in reality due to the sheer number of interactions created by their construction methods.

im just saying it's a bit callous to assume that building things on the computer is anything like building things in real life.
I spent many years writing software, & some time distilling physics & systems for a few sim DLC. The FM is the same amount of work no matter what the age of the aircraft, the artwork is obviously dependent on the model itself but externally, honestly they're not that different even for large aircraft ( the interior of a large aircraft is another matter ), a piston engine is rather more complex than a turbine to simulate in depth, but the sheer quantity of systems to model on a modern aircraft is *horribly* time-consuming, especially the interactions between them. It's not just creating them all, it's all the debugging work that also scales.

This is a launch from a Seasprite chopper, you can asee the display. Should be similar to the F-5
