AV-8B Harrier Thread

I don´t know, but seeing this videos and watching how easy this people take off and land this airplane with almost no trainning, worries me about the realism of the flight model, I´m the only one???:(

 

Is not even out yet we already started this? At least with the Ka-50, A-10C, P-51, Mirage, SU-27, F-15...(every module) people tend to wait before complaining about the "fallacy" of the flight model.

To whom it may concern,

I am an idiot, unfortunately for the world, I have a internet connection and a fondness for beer....apologies for that.

Thank you for you patience.

 

 

Many people don't want the truth, they want constant reassurance that whatever misconception/fallacies they believe in are true..

well there is a difference...in a Game its no problem if i screw up 9 out of 10 TOs.

in real life it des make a difference, so long training is needed because you only get one life.

Imagine you buy the game and can only play until you crash ;)

'controlling' the Ka50 feels like a discussion with the Autopilot and trim system about the flight direction.

Maybe we should bring in a System that if you crash your plane you would have to rebuy the module or something for people to get a fear of doing things wrong :megalol:

 

Everything is easy in a simulator because there are no consequences.

It's not such a bad idea. It would be an interesting experience to have for instance a few MP servers where if your virtual pilot dies, you have to pay some set ammount - for instance 20 EUR. The money could go for some noble purpose instead of increasing EDs margin.

 

On the discussion how difficult landing Harrier will be. We all have to wait (probably 3 weeks ) to find out. The gut feeling tells me that probably not as much difficult as landing Spit, Huey or Hip ;)

Is it possible to toss JDAMs with the Harrier?

Yes, but according to the Pocket Guide the mode for that *(DLS?)* will come at a later date, before release.

 

EDIT looked it up again, LOFT is a submode to AUTO. Still if I remember correct, it will not be available in Early Access... but let's see what Razbam comes up with in a few weeks.

Yeah I guess it'll maybe come with the guided weapons, should be an interesting addition to DCS. I really enjoy using it with the Harrier in BMS (I know it's not really accurate but it's all I've got until this comes out) Unfortunately I fear it'll be useless in multiplayer as there's no way to plan a flight beforehand.

If I understood the NATOPS tactical manual correct, that is, what TOO (Target-of-opportunity) may be able to achieve. I can't recall everything. Was a quick read...

 

Anyway TOO is planned for later, also. ;)

Why would you need DSL for this over Any other delivery mode?
Yep, my fault. LOFT is a submode of AUTO...

As I said, read this a couple weeks ago, and had to look it up, again.

The engine start switch does use the "APU". From what I understand from the NATOPs manual the APU switch just operates the GTS (Gas Turbine Starter) in APU mode, ie couples it to a generator to provide electrical power for the aircraft. If you just hit the engine start switch, it uses the GTS to start the engine instead.

I'm an idiot and didn't read the full text properly either. Yeah the old LOFT will be needed for a bomb toss. Can't frikkin wait for this beast!
Oh yeah, baby... I have to confess I am a CAS addict and that is a perfect new toy for the cozy winter evenings.

Preparing myself for low level flight and cas missions, I started learning the viggen. Although I feel like it's a lazy pilot's plane haha.

 

Trying to get used to low speed maneuvers in the av8 the viggen is a nice one for that. Whenever I'm flying it I feel like a helicopter pilot because I'm always so low.

Im very worried about HUD and his visibility. Its again very badly visible like in the Mirage :( I hope this will be fixed when Harrier arrives in DCS.

I don't think that this is a game issue. The issue is that they're in a sunny desert with sunlight going directly into the HUD glass. IRL the HUD projection is going to be very difficult to view under such circumstances, and this is demonstrated in game.

 

Try lowering your helmet's shaded visor, and that will help, or adjust graphics settings to turn down gamma should help as well.

 

Try flying a mission just after dark and you'll see what I mean, the HUD will be much more visible.

Hmm. Maybe you have right.
