Default F-8 news?

Any news on progress or when to roughly expect EA to land? A year, 2 years?

Well I think they wanted to get the corsair out first. So I'm guessing a while.

My personal release prediction is 2-3 years from now.

I think it's better they refine and tune mig-21 and ce ii first. Too much meat on the grill and something remains uncooked or gets burnt (see ED policy since they decided to get quickly to the viper).

No dev response? Don't need an exact date, would just be nice to know wether it's going to be a year or several years we have to wait

We're not going to provide any date because at this point it makes no sense. It's simply too early.

Hi Hiro,
I wouldn't ask for a date because its obviously very far out. If you ever feel like sharing any early 3d models or what's being researched that would be cool. This is one of my dream aircraft for DCS so I'm excited to follow along. However if you guys plan to keep mostly silent on development I understand given how this community tends to react. Best regards.

Why troll the F-8 thread with your mig issues? The Mig is an old module from before the company split. The code is probably a mess with half the people who worked on it gone. I like the Mig and have a lot of fun with it and will happily buy future modules from this dev. If you disagree well thats your prerogative. But we should all probably accept that were not going to see any major mig updates.
