I sort of imagine the masses of people involved in flying, developing, training, across the simulation worlds. The stats are massively enormous when it comes to heavier planes.
Yet there isn’t much interest or discussions related to the development of heavy aircraft.
C-17 WTF for?
I’ll tell you WTF for, I have needs to fly it, I Used a yoke controller for 80% of my flights last year.
90% of that was autopilot.

What? Are you seriously demanding a C-17 because "I have needs to fly it...?"

I don't see how using a yoke is relevant; the C-17 doesn't have one.

A C-17 or C-130 would be cool, could do some cool low level tac work. Plus the MOAB, can't forget that.

There is a C-17 III in X-Plane.

This could fulfil you Globemaster itch in the short term. I don't think any modder for DCS World is contemplating Heavies at this time (trainers and fighters are the order of the day, at the moment, since those aircraft capture the needs of most users at this time).

well, the OP got a point there. I mean, in terms of a dynamic battlefield, a globe master or fat albert could provide means for logistics transfer (ammo and fuel trucks maybe) between forward and rear echelon posts. Let alone paradrops for troops into cities, as well as MOAB or even specialized jamming platform working with SEAD/DEAD. Hell even a spooky helps alot.

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

Enough talk of heavy lifters. Someone tell me that the Mirage III wouldn't be one of the juiciest choices for a DCS aircraft; everyone had them and there's heaps of legit theatres.

I've started work on an AH-64A module. Sadly, by "started work on" I mean that I've though to myself "Hey self, an AH-64A module would be a really good idea...".

That's where I'm currently stuck. Development has ground to a halt.
