Apparently Pylons in DCS are totally not taken into account as far as drag and weight...

There was a thread, years ago, where discussion about TIT temperature and engine thrust went deep. Documents were posted, a RL crew chief was banned, thread deleted I believe.
I can sum it up to this:

ED used the values of an uninstalled engine. When the engine is installed in the aircraft, parameters change a bit, in this case the max TIT of the installed TF-34 are higher.
How that reflects on total thrust was estimated to be a difference of a few single digit %.

Anyhow, all those who have RL A-10 experience have reported some discrepancies regarding engine thrust.

About maneuverability, IMO this has a lot to do with us having short sticks that are not very precise. I can hold the A-10 in the chop-tone and keep turning if I am *very* precise with the stick, but it's hard. A stick extention might help.

There was an issue recently fixed with the drag index (or maybe the weight? i can't remember) for the triple rocket pods mount for the A-10C reported and fixed right away.
ED needs data to fix stuff.
The said issue was fixed after someone filed a proper report like
"Object X has the issue Y because by performing test Z the result differers from manual ABC. By further investigation the issue appears to be that the object X has the value $whatever wrong and should be $whateverRight".
People just complaining "The A10 feels XYZ instead of ABC" isn't going to cut it, just as it isn't going to cut it the usual "there's probably this or that wrong".

What are the chances we can have some fun/ learn with this topic?
Can someone set up a lobby/room with both the FC 3 A-10A and the A-10C modules.
A room where we compare results, computer specs, and controller settings.
We could compare different loadouts, fuel levels, weather conditions, altitudes, and the 'feeling' factor.
A room where we bring anything and everything including performance charts, video footage, and testimonial inputs from actual pilots.
We could invite another airframe/aircraft to compare performance factors.
To keep this post short. lets work together and resolve this issue.

You could start a discord for it. That is a perfect platform for something like that.

In other cases have actual a10 pilots speak out like habu.


All in all this thread aint nothing new. This must he like the half dozenth time a thread like this has been started.
Two things:

1) Do you realize that I made a joke and that the specific loadout I used is a very important part of said joke?

2) Do you realize that I made a joke?

Also please dont suggest that I am "mathematically illiterate" just because you did not get the joke I made.
