Exactly, although they can be more action packed depending on the war and its situation
But yeah, flying CAPs is often boring as well, so I rather stay away from doing that. (especially HAVCAPs!).

From what I know about combat drops in hot environment, especially at night, a C-130 can be very... Let's say interesting.

And I won't mind to pilot a Tanker in a crowded environment either. Or a AC-130 Spectre over an Insurgent camp... Add an Autopilot and controls for the refueling hose/boom on the KC and Guns on the AC and we will be fine.

Yes, I would love to fly a C-130 or C-160 in DCS. Doing resupply flights for frontline air fields should be fun as well! I just don't want to draw circles in the sky flying a tanker.

Dammit, late to the party..

C-130 or Osprey. The Hercules is just iconic for being true multi-role and being very good at it.

And the V-22 is capable of STOL or VTOL with limited cargo.. A fast helo or slow Hercules..

"The C-130 has no weapons!!!"

Ha Ha, you underestimate it's power!!



(this is probably just a test of the bomb, I have no idea if this is how it's actually deployed)

It would be great to have a MV-22B operating along AV-8. Cheers.
