Default Module Request/proposal: Pilatus PC-21

Hi there fellow simmers,



I have come to realize how great of an asset the Pilatus PC-21 is in pilot training and how we as a community should consider the aircraft as a potential module.



The role of the PC-21 is to train pilots in Air Forces all around the world to fly, and as well as to prepare them to fly more complex jets such as the F/A-18 Hornet without 'Lead in Fighter' training.

The PC-21 is a 2 seat, single engine Turboprop advanced trainer with a top speed of 370kts, and a ceiling of 38,000ft. The aircraft can pull up to +8.0g and -4.0g.



The cockpit systems consist of 2 multi-function displays, a PFD and SFD, and EMD (Engine Monitoring Display), and HUD. The PC-21 can also simulate weapon engagement of both A2A and A2G missiles and bombs.



My question to you guys out there is: Is there any chance we can push for this to become a module in the not so distant future with the help of the community?



Thanks guys



-Matt

would be an instant buy, more or less, as much as it would cost. But one thing that is in development is the super-tucano by razbam, that is pretty close to the pc-21 (but more weapons)

OT, but listing a country that operates the PC-21 as your location in the forum profile settings pretty much gives it away...

Lol . Anyway, it next to impossible to keep things secret nowadays. I am looking forward for the Super Tucano, I would say the airplane I am most looking forward. I was disappointed to hear it was put on a fridge for now. Anyway, I am in, if someone presents an alternative. Not sure about the PC-21 capabilities, but it does look interesting for light support, recon, navigation, and aerobatics.

Interesting...

But I am sure Super-Tucano will be THE machine in that category here!

Hey, i'm working on a pc-21 as a side project/hobby, once again it's the same thing with all DCS "Aircraft" now 3D is the most easier step in the creation process. You can have the best 3D shape of the world, but if avionics and FM don't follow, that useless. I've no pretention with this project, i making it more for fun.

Interesting plane in fact, and would be nice to have it in DCS. Good luck with the project, maybe one day we will be flying it in DCS, If not, just enjoy the way. Also as a COIN ops lover, will enjoy the armed part of the plane.
