There's a reason for that, the F/A-18 and F-16 as well as the A-10C were commissioned FOR the Navy and Airforce. We just get an unclassified version to play with, so it happens that they are Specifically modeled to a specific version. The one the Customer asked for.

No.....

Only the A10C is a by product of former ANG contract. In the A10's case there are no users outside of the US anywas.

F18C and F16C are just aircraft that ED decided to do and are for the consumer sim market only. IT makes sense to simulate country of origin first and foremost before doing specific export variants with thier own unique features. Besides a google search for Flight manuals and documentation will also tell you why its far more sensible to fo for those US operated aircraft.

the F5 all things considered should be otherwise a US agressor ( advertised as USAF specific) based version for similar reasons. Besides, the Map (Nevada NTTR) and campaigns are based around aggressor use, so the variant should match to whats in either USAF or USN documentation. It doesn't, so that's a bad move , luckily ED must have started to enforce higher standards, as IF you recall before being squired and incorporated directly into ED, based on features listed BST was in turn very specific what they were going to give with the " now on hold" F4E phantom. Fact checking on that description, it would have been an authentic USAF based F4E circa 1980s. And unlike the F5 aggressors that would have lacked any specific appropriate scenario.

Please don't comment about contracts w/ incorrect information.

And they have nothing to do w/ the current topic.

It's been stated on record, by ED. A10C is a consumer grade flight sim was a by product derived from a professional desktop trainer for the ANG, back when they were transitioning from a10a to a10c. The same cannot be said for f18c or f16c module

I dont see what you attempt to prove by trying to vaguely imply otherwise.


I didn't bring it up someone else did. Your barking up the wrong tree here.

I think F-5N would be great as long we will still have the F-5E. I hope you will decide to make it.

I would prefer getting an F-4E to an F-5N. But I would still buy an F-5N, especially if it coincided with a free update to the F-5E to current DCS World standards.

The version with four AIM-9s & the Mavericks would be a worthy side-grade ( the slightly later E models I think? ) - the Singapore AMRAAM carriers might be going a bit too far. I wouldn't pay full price for an upgraded E but I'd consider a small donation for a refresh, given it'd need a new cockpit. I'd be a bit more amenable to a multicrew F model with Pave Spike ( if only as an illustration of how bad tpods can be :p ).


Or perhaps they can have a look at the rest of it if they redo the cockpit ala Ka50/A10. Did any version ever carry the Shrike? quick browse suggests not ( not many operators used the missile ) but I've hardly done a comprehensive search...
