  1. Hey guys, So i fly the jeff on a daily basis and i would like to know what you guys think about whether or not this is realistic. My main questionable ability of the jeff is being able to have full control when still at 70 - 130 knots whilst pulling 32 - 40 aoa Here is a demonstration: JF 17 Is The Most Balanced UFO - YouTube Then i would also like to mention the snappiness on the rudder, its feeling like it always has full authority, no matter at what speed. I just find it weird, not really a bug report just a quick message whether or not this is realistic. if it is well so be it I attached a tacview ( Regular dogfight) Jeff.zip.acmi
  2. Hello All, The v65th AGRS is looking for a few dedicated JF-17 pilots to augment and support our primary Viper operations. These various operations will include but are not limited to the aggressor role, BVR, SEAD, Surface attack, and CAS. Applicants are expected to have a base line understanding and ability to taxi, take off, turning rejoin, formation station keeping, and landing. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate these proficiencies with a go/no go safety check ride with one of the v65th IPs. Please see the attached safety check guide below. Upon successful completion of the safety check ride, the applicant will enter an IFF pipeline to learn the tactics and procedures that the v65th uses in each of our operations. This will allow us to all operate on the same page. All of this will be completed in the JF-17. If you have any questions or want more information, please feel free to DM me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. 65th_vAGRS_Safety_Check_Guide.pdf
  3. Not sure if it belongs here, but here goes. In current Open Beta in Create Fast Mission menu there is a drop-down list of available aircraft, and JF-17 is not there, neither in simple nor in advanced mode. It shows up perfectly fine in Mission Editor though. Tried removing unofficial mods, made no difference.
  4. Operation Desert Thunder The year is 2017. Tensions have been brewing between the Republic of Hormuz and the Free State of Bastak for several years regarding natural gas deposits found off the island of Qesm. So far, any attempt by the international community to mediate the dispute has been rebuffed by both parties who claim the Island as their own; Hormuz because it is within their borders and Bastak due to the many of Bastak heritage who live on the Island. Sponsored by the Russian Federation and People's Republic of China, Kuban Security has been enlisted to bolster the air force of Hormuz with their JF-17 Thunders. It is hoped that this move will stabilize the situation and calm the ambitions of both the Free State of Bastak and the local insurrection by the Prophets Faithful. You are THUNDER LEAD, a veteran flight leader in Kuban Security. You and your colleagues are now the Hormuz only modern air force assets and the nations last defence against the forces that seek to disrupt peace and balance in the region. Key Features: Fly the JF-17 Thunder over the Persian Gulf as part of the PMC Kuban Security and their deployment to boost the air force of the Russian Federation ally of Hormuz. Perform ten missions such as combat air patrol, close air support, low level attack and deployment of precision munitions against a large variety of targets. Aid your allies against both a local insurgency and the unknown agenda of the western-alligned state of Bastak and their F-16C Vipers! Fly together with a friend in the additional Co-Op Campaign!

  5. Hey, This will probably be a long post, so please bare with me. I. As a small introduction, I am a helo pilot in DCS. Flying the Huey, Ka-50, had also some fun with the Mi-8 and of course waiting for the Mi-24P and Apache. However I am thinking of changing things a little, try something fresh, and I want to try to get, learn and spend some more time on my first multirole jet, with a similar amount (or more?) of dedication as I do to fly helicopters. Yeah, Im a big rotorhead because it was the helos that got me hooked, and I would like that it would "click" in a similar way for my first multi-role fighter. Because I love ground pounding, but I am also thinking about getting into A2A. As a side note, I also want you to know, that before I wrote this post, I finished the F-15C, Mig-29S and started the Su-27 default campaigns. The reason for that the FC3 aircraft honed my skills a little if it comes to radar, SA and weapons management. It was simply a good training ground in preparation for the clickable-cockpit aircraft, when I felt its the time to try something more advanced. The jets in scope are the F-16 which I already own, and the JF-17 that I do not own. For your information, why those two in particular is that I also own the Mirage, Harrier, A-10C II Tank Killer, F-14, Viggen and the F-18 Hornet. I am mostly a ground-pounder, and I had the most fun with the Harrier and Warthog in the past, before i switched to flying helicopters for like 90% of the time. To explain why other aircraft are kind out of scope for me is that: 1. F-14 and F-18, im not into Navy Ops. I like to take the Tomcat for a joyride sometimes, but that's it. The Hornet does not appeal to me the way how it feels, how it drives. I know it is a long legged plane that can-do-it-all and is a very well developed module, but it simply does not "click" with me. And believe me, I have tried to like it several times. It does not work. Sorry Navy, you can keep your boats and tailhooks. 2. Warthog and Harrier. Spent quite a bit of time on those two and love them, also believe it or not and it might sound funny, but they were the reason i picked up helicopters. And I am not saying this in a negative way, they simply made me realize what I like doing the most. 3. Mirage - Tried it, liked it, but did not get hooked by it. But that was a long time ago and it still does not appeal to me. 4. Viggen - I like it very much, the aspect of burning a trail in the grass with the afterburne, popping up and unleashing hell on targets were fun but in the end, the Viggen is too much of a overspecialized machine for me that requires a lot of meticolous planning. So a no go for me. II. Because of the reasons above, it boiled down to the Viper and potentially the JF-17 Thunder. So below, a bit of what kind of experience/knowledge I have about both aircraft: JF-17 Thunder I do not own it, but watched YT videos about it, read about its history, went through Chucks Guide a bit (and I was amazed about the weapons having around 120 pages...) and truth is I have started to like it very much, although I have never before heard about it and just knew it existed in DCS now. Second thing, even the glass cockpit started to appeal to me in a very positive way. And I think the most important thing, the Jeff was basically a completed module on Day 1, which is something unbelievable. It also made me tune into Deka Ironworks news, where I have heard about the possibility that a Su-30MKK/MKI or a HMD for the Jeff might be a thing. To be honest with you, it gave me the goosebumps. Now, that you know it, a few questions/remarks from my side about the JF-17 that made me wonder if I should pick up this aircraft. Those questions are more about the practical usage, and the way how the aircraft feels to the pilot than dry numbers and systems 1. I love small aircraft, and I know that the pylon layout is quite small, but the ordnance that the Jeff can carry is huge. I do not mind having to think about what to take on a mission, but wanted to ask is it still doable to do a bit of self-escort? Of course depending on the scenario. So here is where the fuel thing comes into the topic. 2. I know the fuel capacity (even with 3 bags) is almost 10.000lbs (correct me if i am wrong) + you get a probe for A2A refueling. However, I wanted to ask, how is the fuel management for longer flights? Lower overall tank capacity does not necessarily mean that the Jeff eats through fuel like the MIG-29 does. Is this true? It would mean that the Jeff is quite fuel efficient and can have quite long legs, despite being able to carry less internal fuel than other multi-role aircraft. Is the A2A refuel a pain? 3. What is your general in-cockpit feeling of the JF-17? By that I mean: - How are the controls? (I use a Thrustmaster FCS 16000m HOTAS) is the Jeff responsive, handles well? ( i heard it has only vertical FBW, but no horizontal one) - Are the HOTAS functions similar or easier/better organized than the F-16 Viper ones? - How does the canopy affect the view and influence the situational awareness in comparison to the bubble canopy of the Viper? My feeling is that the bubble canopy of the Viper is the better one, but the JF-17 glass cockpit displays make them much more visible than those in the Viper. Is my guess here correct? 4. How is the raw engine power of the JF-17? No slouch? Has a "kick" like the Viper does? Is the throttle lagging in a similar way as the Hornet does? 5. The JF-17 feels a bit like a DCS underdog. Its on no fancy posters but is starts to build a name for itself. And I gotta say i like to be an underdog, which the JF-17 seems to offer in a world where Western hardware simply seems to be everywhere... Sometimes I am a little tired of it and caught myself eying more and more the eastern toys. 6. How are the availalble SP campaigns? I ask since I mostly fly single player and like to have scenarios where i use what I have learned. 7. Any other things you thing are worth mentioning? F-16 Viper I will try to keep this one shorter, since I own the module and have... tried it out you can say. 1. My country flies those, so I am kind of slightly biased. It clicks with me, but I am not that much satisfied with the current development stage. However you might be able to change my mind and try it afterall. 2. I love the feeling of raw power in this thing, the engine can really kick and the way the Viper recovers energy is astounding. Is it something that will remain, or something that needs tweaking? (I take here into account that the F-16 is far from being fully complete) 3. I heard the G-Force modeling is a bit pale and is something that hinders the F-16 full potential, because right now it seems that the "pilot" inside the Viper has no resilience. As if he did not undergo training for the F-16. Is this true? 4. I have a feeling that the MFD are less readable than those in the JF-17. Is it true that the glass cockpit is easier to navigate that the one of the Viper? 5. Have not flown the Viper to much, so I have to ask, how is the fuel managment/consumption in comparison to the JF-17? I know the Viper can carry more fuel, but when fuel consumption rate is a factor, then lower fuel quantity does not have to be a hinderance. 6. Any other things worth mentioning to convince me? Summary Thanks for sticking so far with me and reading what I wrote. So now that you know what kind of experience/knowledge I have and what my general preference is, it boils down to the question of this topic. Should I get the JF-17 or stick to the helicopters and give the F-16 more time? I have read in the last news letter I think, that the Hornet is nearing completion and the focus will shift to the Viper. Bugfixing and new additions. But it will still take time and it might be a wise idea to wait. Many thanks for reading once again, and thank you in advance for the feedback. Fly safe
  6. Hi, getting the below skins for the Thunder would be amazing, I would even pay for it I am sure this would look cool flying around on the maps. I hope someone will consider making this skin!! And as I said, contact me if you want some kind of payment for it, then let's see what we can agree upon
  7. Any chance we could see improvements to the DCS JF-17 such as a functioning HMD and, I know this is asking for a lot but what about the off-bore sight PL-10E missile? I mean, Deka did make a JF-17 for DCS and no where does it say exactly which block it's meant to be. Sure some say it's block I with some block II features, but we do have a HMD button in the cockpit. I understand majority of block III is classified but maybe some features could make it in, such as HMD.
  8. I am not sure when this change happened, but now the default loadout selections are not usable. The max weight of the JF-17 in instant action is 12,500kg. Two PL-5's, two dual SD-10's and two 1100L fuel tanks make up 12,541kg, just outside of the 12,500kg limit. Is this a bug, or is it supposed to be this way? I've flown with even more on my JF-17 in the past. How come now all of a sudden I am unable to load the aircraft with fuel tanks and 2x dual SD-10's?
  9. Hello, hope you are fine. I think there is something wrong with the JF 17 camera. Because the controllable missile sees the far range this way for some reason. it looks far away, but for some reason the destination remains the sea.
  10. Dear All, My first time here and apologies if this bug has already been highlighted in the forum (I could not find the answer to this issue). I use a VR and a Hotas X56. As a preferable configuration, I use all of my radar commands from my Hotas (barely use my keyboard). During BVR or Ground attack mode, for Radar elevation I have used JOY_BTN 30 (for up) and JOY_BTN 31 (for down) - this is located around where you would have your left pinky finger on the throttle (https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3309548/). However, for some reason recently (whether on multiplayer or off-line) the radar elevation either keeps going up or down. I had this bug before on Multiplayer straight after I take off as I switched on the radar; I used to notice this straightaway. I then used to choose another slot (re-spawn) and for some reason it used to go away. However, now... even that is not working. (see attached image of the radar MFD that I am referring to - this is not the actual shot of the error; but just wanted to flag where I am noticing this bug). I then checked controls to see if there are any clashes on this - there is none! I really do not know where this bug is coming from - can anyone help? Thanks a lot TK
  11. Hello! I am working on a fictional Egyptian Air force livery for the Jf-17 using the template I developed with Cookiemonster. it's partially inspired by the F-16s currently in service with the EAF, here's to hoping that we'll see this in real life soon™. I plan to follow this up with several more Egyptian schemes for most of the aircraft we have in dcs, if you have any recommendations please report in the comment below with a picture! here are some teaser screenshots: Best of luck! --Kerbo Edit: it has been approved for the user files link below: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314085/
  12. Any chance we could see the implementation of block 3 HMD for the JF-17? I see there is a button for HMD usage in the cockpit and I know block 1 and 2 doesn't have the functionality (yet), but if we see that block 3 with the Pakistani airforce or other airforces begin to use HMD on their JF-17's, will we see this functionality come to DCS? Thank you.
  13. I was flying 1v1 with my friend on a dogfight server and noticed that 50% of the time it would not radar lock his F-16 even when he was right in front of me. Sometimes after like 6+ seconds of waiting it would get a lock, and then a few seconds later lose it even when he wasn't maneuvering or anything. Just randomly dropping lock. Do you guys know why this is? I'm not making any accusations that it's broken or anything, I just want to understand why it's not locking on when I feel like it should be. Even in bore sight mode when I know exactly where he is in a head-on it doesn't lock on until he is right about to pass me. Just seems off, maybe I'm doing something wrong. Anybody else understand what I'm talking about?
