Personally I completely agree with that. As an aggressor it is "the" aircraft for the NTTR after the A10C. It is a lot of fun to fly in "Cold War" scenarios against the MiG-21 as DCS is not sophisticated enough to enforce a VID requirement in "modern" scenarios. You will always find yourself turning and burning. And it is also "beginner friendly" for people new to the Sim with easy to use systems and procedures.

What i like to see updated is the FM including feedback from the plane to the pilot (I think it is the opposite of the F-14 in this regard). It is rather difficult to "feel" buffering or AOA changes in general.
The radar is simulated rather simple. I like how Heatblur developed the Pulse Modes for the AN/AWG-9. With the F-4 on the horizon I hope ED updates their pulse radar simulation.
The RWR logic and the gun dispersion was not touched yet by ED. Some cockpit textures need an update.

All these things would bring the F-5 back in line with the latest modules. Still, in its current state it is one of the well made modules for DCS.
This would be great if it gets done.

That and sorting a few of the previously mentioned bugs as well. I doubt we'll ever see a modernized version of the F-5 unless a 3rd party decides to take it on.

The F-5 was my first module and the only one I flew until I went all in for the Mirage. If ED would update it as they're planning to do for the Ka-50, and give us a F-5N I will support them without any hesitation.

I would love to see an updated F-5.
Best case for me would be twin-seated version. Would also be nice to get the Photo-/Recon-nose and do some recon with this totally underrated bird.
Of course a refueling probe and the option for two Mavs or 2 more Sidewinders on pylons would be awesome.

Unfortunately the AGM-78 got rejected already. That one would be quite nice, also for the Huey.
And quite easy do make.

I'd be OK with just a texture and cockpit upgrade ala A10C.

I love the F5 for what it is, an old plane with old tech. For MFCDs and stuff like that I'd fly the hornet.

Sadly, the T-38C project died when IRIS pulled out of DCS years ago. Best you’ll find is the Milviz version for P3D. It’s pretty good; I’ve spent time in it, but P3D of course has its own litany of problems.

All I want is:
Bug fixes
Updated textures
Refueling probe optional loadout


Anything more is gravy.
Even as is, the F5 is still one of my favorite modules.

Just fix the bugs and a small eye candy update. I love the f5 for what it is, I have the most hours of any module in dcs on it and always feels like home to me.
No need for extra crap.

Pretty sure he was more or less referring to Graphical Updates/.
