Also, a lot of people just find steam gauges, iron bombs, and getting up-close and NoE to hit your target more interesting than punching in coordinates and dropping murder bots from 30k ft, 20nm away

Hi all,    we have made it very clear the date is subject to change, internal testing continues and if we need more time we will take it, I think most of you want 2.7 to be the best it can b

I'm sorry to nitpick, but DCS is so much more than a game ... it's the best flight Simulator available to consumers 🙂

There goes my hope fo a full DCS Mig29 or Su27:( Yet another American module.

 

At least the Apache has effectively a peer counterpart with the Ka-50, though has far superior sensors and is fully night capable.

I always thought the peer counterpart to the AH-64 is the Mi-28.

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

If you wanna be precise about it sure, but as it now stands there is now a modern, capable attack helicopter on both sides.

Yeeaaahhhh  - Apache Longbow incoming !!!!!
I still have great memories to which (at least for me) was the mother of all flightsims: Gunship on Commodore C64, meanwhile 34 years (!) ago - took about 45 minutes to load from datasette (tape).
 

 

I fully remember, it tended to stop short before entering the cockpit 😉

Yes, new clouds are stunning, absolutely fantastic....but we need to wait again. It would have been nice have a first release for Christmas.

 

However the new weather is more than expected, really fantastic.

 

With this sky, DCS will be a dream to fly.

 

BRAVI!

what a shame, regarding this video the future will be 95% western hardware and gameplay. . .  no red forces, no cold war scenarios. never forget your roots. . .

Any future expectations of the Tornado series and the Red force Mig 27 has now been VERY effectively shut down. There are not many planes down the pipeline on project for most to venture for, other than going for the Peak cold war era jets from the 60s and so on. So far, there is no mention or plans for Cold war era jets.

 

The Iconic F-4 Phantom module itself remains on vague development note and appears to be push back to a much later unknown date...looks to me, its going take 2024 around for that to happen...

 

I do not know what to feel about the Apache. Since I do not own any helo modules. Tried the Blackshark, found helos to be much more difficult to fly and be effective. I certainly do love to fly it...too bad I am terrible with helos.

 

AH-64 was hinted during the Syria map trailer. But we thought it was those fast movers and not helos. Not many of us are helo flyers, even when I do find the Hind and the Apache so very iconic...yes, the Blackshark too, all of which are intensely combat capable.

 

I do own all the Fast movers except the A-10C latest which I might purchase this Christmas. So, I too thought it was something that was marketable on an OVERALL spectrum for both fast and slow mover users when they hinted about the so called teased aircraft...

Maybe in 2022.

 

2021 will be for ED to catch up with tons of pending stuff from the last years.

 

Question: I don't fly much in MP, do we still have that desync with clouds? Where I see a cloud others don't?
