Default DCS Product Terms - Hawk

Following the announcement from Wags on DCS Product Terms, we are pleased to clarify the following for the Hawk:

Hawk for DCS - Standard Flight Model (SFM) and Advanced Systems Modelling (ASM) - Initial Release
DCS Hawk - (in development) External Flight Model (EFM) developed to ED's Professional Flight Modeling (PFM) standard and Advanced Systems Modelling (ASM)

Definitions:
Standard Flight Model (SFM). This has not changed and defines a more data-driven means of achieving flight dynamics, in conjunction with some scripting.

External Flight Model (EFM). Used by our partner developers, the EFM uses only a part of PFM - rigid body physics and contact model. What forces and moments are applied to this rigid body from aerodynamics and any other sources except the contact forces is up to EFM developer.

Professional Flight Model (PFM). This is generations beyond an AFM/AFM+ and is based upon:
• Use a wider array of wind tunnel tests CFD methods for aerodynamics parameters calculations.
• A higher level of aircraft construction details for forces calculations. For example: our landing gear model includes individual kinematics of retracting/extending is used to calculate its movement, servo-piston forces, etc. In such cases, we truly use real lengths, arms, etc. This also includes such items as a realistic simulation of airflow along the airframe due to the propeller or helicopter rotor thrust.
• Realistic simulation of Flight Control, CAS and Autopilot systems.
• Realistic simulation of Hydraulics, Fuel, Electrical, Engine and other systems influence flight characteristics.
• Unprecedented access to test data packs.

Advanced Systems Modeling (ASM). An ASM enabled aircraft goes into great depth to model the intricacies of the various cockpit systems, to include functionality for almost all the buttons, switches, dials, etc. A key element of an ASM cockpit is the ability to interact with it using your mouse. ASM DCS examples include the A-10C, Ka-50, P-51D, UH-1H and Mi-8MTV2.

For Wags original post, please see here:http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.ph...47#post2039947

We have also had a personal validation from a current Hawk pilot, Matt Deavin as below:

"As a current Royal Navy aggressor pilot operating the Hawk T1, I was offered the opportunity to test the VEAO Hawk simulator. I was initially sceptical of how accurate the modelling would be of the handling and the jet engine response. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I found the controls and aircraft responses accurate. The flight model performs as well as the full motion simulator used by the RAF. Flying in formation was easy and very similar to the real thing. I was extremely impressed by the headset integration and immediately felt operational pilots could benefit from training on this software.
In short, the VEAO Hawk is more than a game and comparable to a military grade full motion simulator. In fact, I would even go so far as to say the terrain graphics are higher fidelity whilst flying at low level."

Lt Cdr Matt Deavin RNR
Hawk Pilot
Fast Jet Qualified Weapons Instructor

I think this answers all of the questions of how realistically we have modelled the Hawk systems and flight fidelity to "DCS Standards" and we will not be answering any more questions or debates on that subject.

I will be updating the Hawk product page today and will release the link shortly.

Thanks,
Chris.

Edited for clarity

Thanks for the update Chris, would your FM also be classified as an EFM as well as it is created outside ED? That is the only thing that is a little cloudy for me... maybe you need to call it a EFM/PFM?

Well, all the things listed in the PFM will be in "our EFM" so we're calling it a PFM, or you could say 3rd party EFM modelled to ED's PFM specification I guess...

Hope that muddy's the puddle a little more

Ha, its semantics really... We know you are developing your own FM, so I suppose it doesnt matter. Stating it will be at the PFM level is enough for me... seeing the quality so far already makes me confident you guys can easily(with tons of work) pull that off

"... and we will not be answering any more questions or debates on that subject."

Argghh!

Although that professional validation truly nailed it, it does beg the question of whether the Hawk AFM is further along than we expected.

And, what is this, "headset integration"?
