That's our job! (At least for the F-14 and Vigg)

This is awesome news for a huge VKB supporter. If they proceed like they have with MCG and create TM and GF versions, the response will be really great!

You guys are awesome, plain and simple.

Question..

VKB mentions their throttles will also have switchable grips..

Might a Tomcat throttle be in the cards too?

Chizh on the question as to why DCS development seems slower and slower: "Slower than 20 years ago? - Yes. The slowdown is primarily due to increased requirements for quality. Very few modelers are able to provide it."

So you're telling me....

That at this present time, it seems as though the plans of the current flight simulation elites are forcing me to, besides the particular amount of currency I hath set to be used for the purchase of the anticipated virtual products to be released by said elites, choose to which physical apparatus I shall designate my particular budgeted funds for a replica of a simulated item's controller; and thereby, force my persons decision making capacity to make a choice between two of mine favorite flying, sea based, military vehicles?

Great...

You need VKB base, VKB grips until now work only in VKB bases.

In fact is in the other way around, Tm Warthog grip can be used in VKB bases (Gladiator PRO and Gunfighter) after installing in this grip VKB electronic adapter and VKB mechanical adapter.

Use VKB grips on Warthog base - or any other joystick base - is NOT possible.

What is possible just "bolt and play" is use VirPil (VPC) T50 grip in Warthog base.
