External Flight Model and Application Programming Interface.

EFM is a term coined by users on the forum, API is a programming standard.

It is referring to the DCSW's ability to plug in external FM engines.

Am I missing something, or is there no axis assignment for left and right toe brakes in the FC3 Controls?

They do feel the same, but they don't fly the same. These aircraft are tuned to present their RL performance within the limitations of the SFM.

The FC aircraft utilize what is called a SFM (Simplified Flight Model) it is defined by a few dozen parameters and a couple tables...what happens with this is that the aircraft utilizing a SFM pretty much all fly and feel the same.

You're not missing anything, those assignments do not exist for FC3.

Oh absolutely, they have different aerodynamic properties defined in their respective SFM tables so yes their will have different performance, but their short term control responses are extremely similar since there is really no way to manipulate that within the confines of the SFM.

Missiles seem unchanged from previous versions. Especially the loft issue.

I plan to do more testing, but now is not good time as I'm going to be in the middle of moving soon. I won't even be able to fly in DCSW next week.

I have never played Lock-On or Flaming Cliffs. I see a lot of information about what I can expect for the flight model, ground handling, and model and texture detail, but what can I expect with regards to the avionics of the F-15C in FC3?

DCS: A-10C is my only good frame of reference. I can honestly live without an AFM and all that stuff for now if it means I get to fly something resembling the F-15C. What are ultimately important to me are the operational procedures of the aircraft in a combat situation.
