If the F-86F is going to updated to be more accurate, I would prefer a "split" like the P-51D. It would be nice to actually have a variant that served in Korea. The closest variant to the DCS F-86F would be the F-86F-30. Omit the Sidewinder controls and LABS to pretty much nail this variant. Omit the Sidewinder controls to have a spot-on F-86F-35. Perhaps the existing cockpit with LABS and Sidewinder controls could be a "checkbox" option?

The F-86F-40 is too different in flying qualities and appearance with the longer, slatted wings. A separate module would be justified.

^This, except right now there are no plans for a Korea Map, so when that happens, we can re-touch on this subject.

True, although not as simple as that.

Although it would not require any 3d model or Fligt model changes the F-86F30 would be more than just removing sidwinder and labs controls. fairly different cockpit panels in the Front, and also different panels for Fuel tank controls in the sides, and no bombing computer, no manual bombing pipper type that is in the F-86F35.

Although i agree F86F30 is more fitting for Korea as that was the last version to see use in that war. F86F35 missed Korea, but in its standard 6/3 wing configuration is otherwise identical to performance to the F86F30.

if there was any separate sabre module that i would spend money and prefer over the F-86F40 ( technically USA never operated production F40's, only upgraded F25-F35 blocks with F40 wing post via retrofit) on would be the F-86H

The developer may err on the side of plausibility and makes a module that can simulate different versions in one, if you know what I mean.
If your version didn’t have Sidewinders, don’t add them. Pretend a little.
That’s my take on this, anyway.
To you may be rationalizing inaccuracies, but not everyone has your lower standards.

I'm not advocating for a particular variant, besides pointing out in a bug report inconsistencies for features for the specific variant that it should be, that is actually supported by documentation. IE USAF series manuals for the F86F series. That is fact. Why does the Mig15bis get to be representative of a korean era version? IF it was a post war version Soviet pilots would be wearing G suits for EG.

Therefore a USAF variant should be represented to its accuracy, as this is the most common available documention ( if not the only type besides RCAF] Canadair sabers,but thats another story). Using documentation from country of origin should be the default where possible. A Aim9 less F86F35 is still not a Korean era aircraft. Itsdifferent from the F86F30 that was actually used in korea, but otherwise still the same in performance. That itself is already compromise on its own. And lets be honest whens the last time anyone used Gar8's ( aim9b) anyways. its more a of a niche weapon that carried at the cost of extra drag, and very situational against a small maneuverable target like the Mig15.

Going by the logic of "plausibility' just because it feels so is a very slippery slope.

There was no planned environment for the F4E, yet in comparison to prior modules Belsimtek had very specific feature list for the F4E, I did some fact checking, and it would have been authentic USAF model based on their feature descriptions. About a mid 1980s era F4E aircraft, but nonetheless even if that wasn't put on hold, that too would be stuck without any specific scenario, or campaigns but BST seemed to finally start moving to higher simulation standards that ED has with that planned module/.

How is that? did ED finally start enforcing higher standards and greater communication on 3rd parties after the fiasco of a certain 3rd developer starting with "V"?

Who knows but lets be honest If that F4E was released im sure no one would be asking for "plausible" fantasy features to be a criss cross of multiple versions or from other users.

+1 for slatted and fenceless wing. I'd like to be able to pretend it's a Canadair Sabre VI. Changing the visual model wouldn't break any missions. (It might break a lot of skins though, though maybe this is a good time for it as many older skins seem to be broken anyway.)

What about BS3? Yes i have following the discussions


ED eventually realized and self admit iglas aren't a realistic load out......

https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php...&postcount=400


Igla's are still being considered because Rotor head fans whine due of the Ka50 having no air defense( being partially justified due to being experimental/ pre production helo) , however even CHIZ acknowledges if the Igla ultimately gets added, theyl have a tick box in the settings menu for those who want to fly realistic. Thus based on user choice on SP, or for Multiplayer server admins, theyl can still restrict to a non fantasy version.

We dont have that choice for F86F35, however difference is as a pointed out, besides having "tickboxex" in settings there is an opportunity to remodel F86F35 to be accurate, both with missiles and without, as a F86F35 did exist with AIm9b, just not documented to be with current wing configuration.


Ultimately its not fair to compare a handful of experimental/ pre production evaluation helos, with various planned features and a couple upgraded to what where envisioned production standards, to a standardized mass production aircraft.

So lets please stay on topic with current aircraft instead of distracting with other projects that are WIP and not actually finalized and in the game yet.
