Default F-15E

Hi all,

I'm loving the F/A-18 but as a lover of the F-15, I was happy to stumble upon some forum threads after a quick Google search on an F-15E for DCS... I have the F-15C but I miss the complexity of the full modules (although I tend to only fly on aerobatic servers) but I wondered what the latest was on the F-15E (I believe Razbam were developing?)

Fully appreciate information might not be able to be shared and that the F/A-18 and upcoming F-16 release require manpower so the F-15 might not be on the radar as such...

Any comments would be most appreciated!

Its under development by Razbam. Thats pretty much the news. They are currently finishing all their current models (M2k, harrier, mig19), then on to the mig23 and F15E.

The only unfortunate news on that is the F15E won't have any sort of rear seat AI like the F14.

Thanks for this How long are we realistically (roughly) looking at before it is close to release?

I haven't used the F-14 but seem to have read good things about the rear seat AI!

There's no release date, not even a clue.

I would guess next year at the earliest mid next year for the mig23 and/or the F15E. They have "teams" but no one here really understands how those teams actually work. At any rate we can assume the 3D modeling is being worked on at least since their 3D models for the other aircraft are done.

As for the F15E, I'll really be on the fence to buy it without some sort of rear seat Wizzo, but that's my personal opinion. They could probably adapt jester, or ED is working on a multicrew system for the F4E and the Mi24 that might end up being a general multicrew thing for DCS world, but that's also pure conjecture on my part.

Thanks for taking the time to reply it is much appreciated... I'll just have to enjoy the Hornet for now and potentially buy the F-16 to tide me over

The F-15E doesn't require a WSO, it only shares the workload between the pilot and the WSO, you can do everything from the front seat.

The reason it still has a WSO is that... it's kind of necessary for the mission.
