And he's just going to ask for a Scandinavian fjords map.




Either way, exciting!

I'm fine with the maps we have, but a full-fidelity F-22, J-20, and Su-57 to go along with the Typhoon would be mighty kickass

Even AI would be great, some fitting opponents for the Typhoon. Scandinavia map would be awesome, retro vibes from EF2000 and also great for the Viggen.

No doubt! I wonder what anyone's gonna dogfight with the Foon if there's no AI latest-'n'-greatest hardware to kick around...


We can probably just go up 1 against 5, or 4 against 20 etc., in a kind of end-of-the-world-but-not-nuclear-quite-yet scenario

Raptor and Su57 aren't really competitors with the EF. Different class. Current IRL Eagles, Super Hornets, or Su-30s are more similar.

Sure... like the "old" F-14B can't perform against a more modern Eagle, Hornet, or Su-30, it can only fight older Jets like the MiG-21 or MiG-23?

I would definitely be asking for a cookie here.
I would relish a scandanivian fjord map sometime in the future.
The concept of bluefor vs redfor is very real. EF2000 showed this.

The Typhoon is a new-generation fighter with flight performance to own all the ones you just mentioned. It's not a stealth fighter, but will easily supercruise and has gobs of thrust.

Performance-wise it could be considered to be in a similar class as the F-22, kind of like comparing a Su-27 to the F/A-18... Although, admittedly, the F-22 has a reputation for being a real powerhouse, just that nobody really knows except for the people that built it and the people that fly it, because it's all still classified.

I think the F-22 is supposed to be good for Mach 1.8+ without afterburning, the Typhoon something like 1.5 or 1.6, mighty chunk better than the F-14/15/16/18 etc.
