Question DCS: Eurofighter Typhoon - Avionics

Quote:
...We will start with an early tranche, most likely the Block 1 moving onto Tranche 2 and Tranche 3 with complex Air-to-Ground systems and full DCS integration.
We all know that many systems of Typhoon are still classified.

In percentage (20%, 40%, 60%?), how many of avionics will be modeled in your DCS: Eurofighter Typhoon?

Thanks in advance and keep good work!

Bye
Phant

Hi Phant,
As you say many of the systems are still classified and it is very early to give an estimate based on the data we already have.

Our aim of course is to be 100% acurate, but with systems classified this just may not be possible and will have to based on available data and our engineers best guess in wind tunnels etc.

All I can say at the moment is that we are working on other avenues that may give us more access to data.

^ and that my friend, is the main purpose of DCS, and ED's existence so far. High fidelity simulators, for combat. We are not asking the impossible, here, you see. Whichever aircraft you have 100% access to simulate, doesn't matter old or new, we will purchase, so long as it's on par with A-10C fidelity, BS fidelity...

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.

Fantastic news ... But, I understand that data is classified to no access in the short to medium term. I also hope minimum level as A-10, Ka-50.

Greetings!

I work for the EADS ASTA Eurofighter Typhoon Military Flight Simulator.

I've logged almost 200 Sim-flight hours in it and can't wait to test the depth of this module
Man, it'll be like working at home! :O

Hey Komemiute,
In the nicest possible way I hate you!!! haha

The purpose of developing our Typhoon model a few years ago was also to talk to air forces about a cheaper alternative to ASTA.

I'm certainly loking forward to your appraisal of our module.

^What he said.

I'd take one accurate module over five guesstimated ones all day everyday.
