Not going to make everyone happy, that is impossible, if multicrew or the apache is not for you no problem.    For those who are excited its going to be great, the messages I have been getti

Yeah, the MiG-29 9.12 is certainly eagerly awaited by me. Especially if other Cold War jets follow. The 2000+ roster is pretty saturated now, considering all the aircraft that ED can't do.

I’ve copied my post from the newsletter thread, as I think the same perception exists here that there aren’t many helo drivers around here:   I know many wanted the F4, Tornado, or a mo

Oh yeah I saw, I'm just worried that there might be some foot shooting involved if it turns out the RADAR is a no-go.

 

. I would like to think that AH64D without Radar will be a EA thing and down the line they would add a Ah64D with Longbow radar installed and it radars functionality at least in some capacity given that even the old Janes Longbow had an apache had a working radar.

As much as I liked Jane's Longbow 2 it was extremely simplyfied when it comes to radar/interferometer modeling, it was so generic it didn't disclose anything or required and classified stuff.

 

There were so many F-22 simulators, some even serious ones like F-22 TAW. Does it mean it is even remotely possible to model DCS standard F-22? Hell no! They just made up most things, other made generic and super simplyfied and some classified systems simply ommited completely.

YEs janes longbow in generally was simplified in its systems relative to modern flight sims.  Then again im not judging this purely on janes.  its been 23 years since janes longbow 2. It would possible to make a more detailed emulation of the longbow today based on the non classified  publicly available information since then.  with minimal effort a mere keywords for a google search is enough to find yourself a manual . So I would be very surprised if ED omitted the longbow radar entirely, even for a post EA complete product.

But it worked. Not that DCS radar modeling is much better.

I've just watched a video about the Lockheed AH56 Cheyenne attack helicopter on Curious Droids channel. One of those would be real fun! Faster than an A10 & easier to fly cos of the rigid rotorhead. Built around TOW, 30mm cannon & a gunners seat that had 360degree rotation during flight.

I would love it, however it wasn't operational, so it probably isn't as suitable for DCS (personally I'm okay with such aircraft, so long as they can be modelled accurately, with the capabilities they actually had, but I'd still prioritise operational aircraft over them); this is also a good video for it.
