They'd need to get data to model AIM-120 capability, as they only have/had access to the 1998 and 2002 TACMAN which is well out of date.

 

what do you mean.... The Aim120 is already present in DCS. in various other platforms and the radar fitted into that harrier is basically from older surplus former F/A18 Hornet radar , the AN/APG 65s that were available after the AN/APG 73 replaced them.

 

In eseense they dont need a newer Harrier manuals. they can fill in the blanks with regards to radar buy relying on Hornet documentation for the AN/APG65.

I think they may get the basics right, but some of the other details and nuances may be incorrect or left out completely. The Hornet air-to-air radar display made use of the 'dugout' for instance, is this available for AMRAAM capable AV-8B's?

I would just like to make it known that I love that a thread for the BEST AND COOLEST AIRCRAFT EVER EMPLOYED IN A WAR is so active in this subforum

I hope and pray that Razbam think about this thing every single night before bed and what joyous prospects it has for DCS

I would surely buy the F-105G, but I wouldn't fly it very often. I would much prefer one of the F-105D blocks that served in Vietnam, the earlier the better. I enjoy historical missions from 1965-1967 over North Vietnam. To date, the Wings Over Vietnam/Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam series is the only worthwhile sim for recreating Rolling Thunder. I would love it if DCS World had the maps and assets to surpass WoV/SF2, especially if it could be delivered in my lifetime.

Unless your 95 years old...I suspect you will see it

I will be 51 years old in February. Assuming I will live to be 75 to 85 years old, I am not sure that I will ever see DCS World: Vietnam.

 

1. Other than MS FS, X-Plane, and Flight Gear, no flight sim has lasted for decades.

 

2. Not one major Vietnam era aircraft presently exists in DCS World.

 

3. The time it would take to create a useful Vietnam environment, complete with flyables for both sides at the present pace of development could exceed 20 years.

 

First, there needs to be a terrain covering form Thailand to Hanoi for the USAF side of the war, though the map could be much smaller if it was just from Yankee Station to Hanoi. Preferably, the map would cover from Thailand to Yankee Station allowing both USAF and USN operations over North Vietnam.

 

Second, the map would need all the appropriate ground objects for North Vietnam and preferably Thailand for the 1965-67 time frame, better yet to cover all the way to the fall of Saigon in 1975.

 

Third, the initial red flyables would need to be the MiG-17F and/or MiG-21F with numerous versions of the MiG-21 all the way up to the MiG-21MF being optional and the Chinese version of the MiG-19S being a nice to have option (readily within RAZBAM's grasp!).

 

Fourth, the initial blue flyables would need to be the F-105D and/or F-4C for the USAF and/or the F-4B for the USN. Optionally, it would be nice to have the F-100D, A-4, and A-1.

 

Given the upcoming late F-4E and existing MiG-21bis, it might be easier to start in 1972. But the effort required to make downgraded F-4E and MiG-21MF variants wouldn't be too much less than creating new aircraft from scratch. This is where RAZBAM's MiG-19 adapted to the Chinese knockoff would have a great fit, though. The overwhelming similarity between the F-4B and F-4C might still favor the Rolling Thunder time frame, which is a great time for the F-105D as well.

 

I would be really surprised if DCS World was able to implement Vietnam in my lifetime given the tasks already on their plate.

 

Given the incredibly long development times for DCS modules, I will take what I can get. If RAZBAM delivers an F-105G, so be it. But I would still much prefer the F-105D blocks that served 1965-1967.

Indeed. Would love to fly century series fighter in DCS -- and F-105 would be THE century series fighter for me.

Greetings, first time on the forums.

I would jump out of my socks to see an F-105D (yes the D model) in DCS World! You can't have Vietnam without the F-105! It is by far the meanest machine you will ever fly, not to mention speeds exceeding 800 knots on the deck!

I am really excited about ALL the aircraft coming to DCS and I must say we are really lucky to have such great modules and maps from ED and all parties involved. You all make us dream!

Having said that, the F-105 is the aircraft I want to see the most in DCS World. Judging by how large the Persian Gulf might eventually be, I would say it would possible to see eastern Thailand, North Vietnam, South Vietnam and maybe parts of China north of Haiphong ( maybe at least one airbase in China).

Keep the dream alive,

Regards,

Hammer_251
