Default DCS Carrier Discussion

Since those were in the talks quite a while ago and already teased in some trailers, what's the status on the updated aircraft carriers for DCS? The current ones are getting quite old compared to the aircraft visuals.

Nimitz is released they kept the old one so it wouldn't break missions it's already ''replaced'' though, deck crews wip, Nimitz carrier module wip, Kuznetsov wip.

I'm wondering how they're going to handle the parking on the flight deck & hangar, after seeing how big the Tomcat is and how much space it takes up. They might have to allow object clipping.

Wags was talking about this in the podcast. He mentioned that the Carrier module is coming together nicely and said it will include animated deck crew. Interestingly he also mentioned that the new Kuznetsov will follow the carrier module and he also said they are excited to see that in the not so distant future.

It's also been said that the new Kuznetsov won't be seen until MAC, as well. Which we haven't heard much about at all since the magazine interview a couple of months ago.

MAC, being a separate product, does not impact DCS feature releases as long as there is another team doing it. Although if the Kuz team is busy with MAC then the above could be true as well.
