But maybe we can do some early stock delivery version of it or so, we will need to see yet about that. We'll finish the A as is first and then most likely take it from there.
Duct tape an ak47 to a pylon and you've got a good start.

Its quite interesting the part where he claims to have shot down a Mig 29 with a Hawk missile


I guess it would be impossible to model a blast radius like that in DCS? Which kind of takes some of the fun away from the Phoenix in ACM mode.
interesting because his RIO ( Mohammad Masboq ) said that at first they saw a single target, but after closing for a few miles they discovered that there is actually three targets flying close formation and the WCS automatically prioritized the targets and RIO decided to fire at WCS target number 2 which was flying at the center of formation with the confirmation of the pilot ( Assadollah Adeli ) and they fired, and after the missile TTI reached to zero all three targets were disappeared from TID and they couldn't find any fire or splash in they sky and they first though that they had destroyed one of them and the others ran away. but after search and rescue team reached the crash site, they found the debris of three MIG-23 so they confirmed that at the day of 7 January 1982 an IRIAF F-14A TOMCAT with the pilot Lt. Assadollah Adeli and RIO Lt. Mohammad Masboq had destroyed 3 Iraqi Air Force MIG-23's with a single AIM-54 missile over the Kharq island.

As for killing 3 floggers, that’s already possible. someone put it on youtube somewhere

Is that right? I didnt think the DCS blast modelling would be that accurate.

Are they planning to add "old" weapons like AIM-7E or J and P Sidewinders? for better simulate the Persian cats?

At the trivial end of the market, I hope someone figures out how to paint white Phoenix's, which were more common for the early ones than the overall grey we now have. Just looks wrong on an early Tomcat.

Did IRIAF change their TF30's exhaust nozzles? https://youtu.be/FnupO4I3Wcw?t=40
Doesn't look like USN F-14A TF30's exhaust nozzles.
I can see in the video, some F14's have the TF30's exhaust nozzles & some don't? I'm confused.... .

I can see why this is something of a thorny issue. The easiest solution would be to spec them as delivered, but that would still mean turning off the TCS. If you model them any later than that, you then get into the issue with everyone wanting the Hawk missile that was used from them for a while. Or if a contemporary version, you then have to develop the Farouk missile, which is a SARH version of the old Phoenix missile.

Judging by how many people keep calling for an F14D, its probably a case of the more you do, the more people want.
