My apologies, I didn't mean to imply it should be added to start another balance discussion. I'm trying to figure out where it will be available and if I should purchase Nevada or not. Blue Flag would be my preferred arena, but if it's not available on the current iteration I'll save my Nevada schmeckles for another...eternity, or whenever ED decides to merge DCS.

Yeah, being forced to dumb bomb and use rockets is good practice regardless!

Bomb damage model is broken. Anything other than a direct hit is useless. True even for 2000# bombs.

hello,

As a gazelle owner, and because i have just bought Nevada, i have noticed that there was a discussion about the gazelle in Blue Flag there : https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...75262&page=393

i have noticed that the main argument against the introduction of the gazelle in Blue flag was :
"it has guided missile, it would announce the introduction of ka-50, which is way too moderm for BF"

i would like to underline that the gazelle comes in 3 different versions :

- "Mistral", A-A version with 4 stinger like missiles

- M, with 4 guided HOT-3 sub-sonic anti-tank missiles with a hard range limit of 4.2km ( =/= 12 supersonic laser guided Vikhr with a 10km range )

- L with a fixed 20mm gun and 8x68mm rockets.

Even if the A-A version is not welcomed in BF, even if the "M" version is too "modern" for BF, the L version is pretty much a smaller Huey with a smaller payload.

Agree completely. But then why do we have the A10A and not the C? I'd much rather have the C and restrict its loadouts. The clickable cockpit makes it worth it in my mind. But the server admins made the decision to stay with the A.

I'll be honest. I enjoy this version of BF on Nevada. Would I buy Nevada for it? Probably not.

Viggen is only red and F5 is only blue. Thus I have to commit to one or the other each round. Not as much fun.

There are also crazy stuttering issues. Nothing major but if they happen at a time when I'm low on the deck in the Viggen or chopper, I'm dead.

I'd probably wait. Although god only knows how much longer it's going to take for ED to fix 1.5.7...

The silhouette style of iff is absolutely necessary for simulating this era and would be really happy if it stays like this. There is enough mess around on other servers.

Auto countermeasures are one significant reason, I’d say. I appreciate the pure 80s feel of the scenario, so it’s possible the Harrier in the form we’re getting it isn’t a great fit, but I’d trade mavs on the A-10 for the LGBs on the F-5. Don’t get me wrong, I love the GBUs, but they aren’t era correct and right now, it’s more efficient for a flight of F-5s to work a FARP with a JTAC than for the A-10s to love the mud.

That said, I love the NTTR version of BF. Even if it doesn’t change it’s still my favorite server, by far

Agree completely. You could never share airframes on this server.
