I've got just the thing...     Trying out a new texturing technique. I think it works pretty well 😎

Hey guys,   We hope everyone had a great holiday break and a happy New Year!     It aint much, but it should keep you going a little longer... 🤣   WIP tail hook as

We have not decided yet but it's unlikely we will be creating the D model. Whilst the D and E share a lot of similarities, it would require pretty much remodelling the entire cockpit and a good chunk

Hey Donny, could you help a brother out? I mean, it's been almost a month and I'm really starting to get the shakes. Night sweats and stomach cramps are really getting to me! I need a fix man! Just a little touch to get me through the holidays would do it. Can you help me out????

Oh PLEASE don't do that! He's the best pusher in the neighborhood and always comes through for me in a pinch. I don't think I would survive for long if he were to be taken in and locked up. If they do grab him, I hope they let him take his laptop into the slammer with him. 😅

In what condition do you prefer to see the cockpit in DCS? Dirty, worn and aged? Immaculate, fresh from the factory? Or somewhere in between? 

 

Somewhere in between.

I'd say it should be reasonably representative of the state the cockpits were in the targeted timeframe.

Annoyed by my posts? Please consider donating. Once the target sum is reached, I'll be off to somewhere nice I promise not to post from. I'd buy that for a dollar!

DCS A-7E Update! Today we'd also like to ask for your thoughts and feedback:

In what condition do you prefer to see the cockpit in DCS? Dirty, worn and aged? Immaculate, fresh from the factory? Or somewhere in between?

Yes, somewhere in between. I believe that Heatblur went too far with the Tomcat.


 


Yep, also agree. Somewhere in between.

A little aging or weathering of the cockpit is OK, but please not as filthy as the Tomcat.

Havent been able to find an accessible natops A7E manual online, so i can't really read into detail. But does A7E still have Agm12 bullpup capability? or was that only the airforce version A7D that retained it?

Good question. I've found this at some modellers page:

This is where is gets a bit confusing and you could end up building a Vietnam era aircraft with the wrong weapons mounted on it.  The following weapons in the kit were used in Vietnam by the US Navy on A-7E's(up until 1975):

 

AGM-12B Bullpup

AGM-45 Shrike

AGM-62 Walleye

AIM-9D Sidewinder

Mk 82 bombs (slick and snakeye)

 

The following are not used on the US Navy A-7E:

 

1).  AGM-65 Maverick missiles and triple launchers (LAU-88).

USAF and Marines used these before the US Navy ordered the ‘F’ version for the F/A-18 Hornet in the early 1990’s.  Even then the LAU-88 (triple launcher) is not used and the AGM-65F is carried singularly on a LAU-117.

 

2).  AGM-84E (Harpoon) SLAM missiles.

AGM-84 Harpoon missiles were first deployed for use in 1979 for P-3 Orions, S-3 Vikings, the AGM-84E SLAM version by F/A-18 Hornets and A-6 Intruders in the late 1980’s..

 

3).  GBU-8/B HOBOS 2000lb bombs.

Used by the USAF.

 

4).  M117 750lb bombs.

USAF – the US Navy has the Mk 83 750lb bomb.

 

Lastly…  The FLIR pod was only made available to 273 A-7E’s – certainly not early 1970’s aircraft.
