Oooh. V1 killing could be good.

Any reason someone couldnt mod in a ground unit for v1 and v2 if they arent already planbed by ED or VEAO?

Oh and Pman could static sight and ggs function be modelled simply as a "HUD" with 2 modes like the jets have air to air, air to ground, NAV modes etc? Selected via which site is fitted via mission editor/loadout screen?

You've probably noticed I like the idea of having as many optional extras as possible!

It looks like the wife will have to starve, and go begging on the streets again - I do feel for the poor woman!!!

You could yes, the problem is that the actual gunsights looked very different and if we were going to do it we would want a solution that changed that as well.

No plans for V1's from us im afraid

Hm. Well I think leatherneck may have a solution to that. Seem to remember them showing a switch panel that blocks most of the foreward view on the mig21 but its notalways fitted on the mig. Will dig through their forum later!

I cant confirm that this will 100% be done for sure until we try and actually put it in the sim but I am confident that we will be able to work something out.
That sounds great

Have checked the mig 21 pics that have been posted. Bunyap has a thread showing a ground attack with guns and rockets including pics in cockpit with a switch panel above the windscreen that isn't there on other recent threads! So how good are leatherneck at sharing?

We have an excellent relationship with Leather neck.

However I havent decided what we are going to do regarding the gunsight yet.

Once that development decision has been made then we will decide a way forward.
