But just becouse it is possible, dont expect ED or anyone to do it, but if you didnt know - Now you do. No limitations in map sizes.
Really? I certainly didn't know that. I'm assuming its still dependent on someone making the map though right?

Yes, someone would have to make it but I dont think we should expect it... But with this, we know that there wont any limitations with map sizes, and FYI the size of the map wont effect performance. Im not 100% sure about this with performance, but it makes sence as we today can adjust how long range of the map will be rendered from your view in the options, and Im sure thats how it will work with EDGE too... Sounds only logical.

And how I understand it, the maps that will come with DCS 2, will probably not be too large as it will be easier to find bugs and so on.. Consider these maps as a testbed, maybe.

The HUn the F100D, one of my favourite fighters of the centuray series.

Would love to see this in game more than the f105, and just about as much as the f4E phantom.

It was still a usefull ground attack and close air support platform during Vietnam despite being in service among more advanced jets with radars. It has autopilot, capable of in flight refuels, cockpit panels similar to the f86( simple avionics, an easier transition from that aircraft), and would have been a interesting opponent vs Mig17s and Mig19s/J6s>

There was an F-100D Super sabre in development, 3d model just about finished , cockpit aspects being worked on, but the projects basically dead.

Just adding my .02 and preferences. Since we already have 2 of the major players in the Huey and Mig-21, in order I'd like to see:

- F-4E (dad flew these during his last tour to Ubon in '72, I grew up around them, and still am in contact with my father's squadron mates, who would gladly contribute their mission experiences up North, including Mig killers and those who were shot down)

- Mig-17 (from research, other than the 21, undoubtedly the major antagonist of the air war)

- Thud (WW missions and A-G element of strike packages)

Optional
- A-6 multi crewable with carrier

- Skyraider both land and carrier based

- Spooky (trail interdiction)

- Jolly Green

While the entire theater would be welcome, everything from Da Nang north would do nicely. That would also include Khe Sanh and the Ho Chi Minh trail if it were to extend west.

Found this interesting article about the F100

http://www.defensemedianetwork.com/s...ns-in-vietnam/

F100 Super sabres starting arriving in vietnam 1964 and the last one didn't depart until 1971.

The f-100 Super sabre flew the most sorties of all us aircraft in the Vietnam war. It only did have 1 probable mig17 kill from its brief days of accompanying f105 strike missions into north Vietnam in 1965.

Again I find it interesting that a a plane ; the F-100D originally introduced in 1956(some were upgraded with An/Alq missile Approach warning receivers and other avionics during its later life) was still such as useful aircraft in vietnam a decade later, not to mention used to such an extent. It remained in US Air national guard service until 1979 and turkey supposedly still had these in service until 1986. That's really long service life for a plane that was not only Americas' but the worlds first combat supersonic production aircraft.

After the F-4E, I would really like to see the F-8E Crusader. That awesome plane was the Navy's primary dogfighter until the F-4B's and F-4J's arrived in number. It also had the highest kill ratio of any fighter in Vietnam.
