Texturing is the easy part... It's the UV mapping that is the hardest..

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

As it it going to be the latest-gen and possibly last redfor fighter jet in DCS, please make it on par with F-18 and F-14 quality, no less. It should be a 60-80 bucks module. We can wait, we can pay.

It's not the "latest gen" ingame right now, and it's unlikely to be the last, either.

 

It might be the latest full fidelity model (depending on what information is considered too classified).

 

Of course, that makes the Mig-23 even more desirable.

Well the Jeff is Red and dates from 2012+, so I'd say its the latest, even if its not Russian, its main export clients are states that typically can't buy western gear. But yes, the Mig-23 would be the most modern full-fi Russian jet in game.

I thought the MLD was more modern...:huh:

 

 

MLD has seen more action especially in M.E regions.

What's the MLD got to do with anything? We're talking about what's in the game and playable. The MLD is not, nor afaik is it planned atm, so it doesn't matter, but yes it is more modern. The MiG-23 we're receiving is a MLA, which was the most mass produced version.

It's a true greenfor, with systems originating from all over the world, with a lot of input from the USA and EU. A J-11B or a J-10 would be a modern redfor, but not the Jeff, even if it borrows the engine from the MiG-29. /offtop

 

 

Can't wait to see the workspace of the 23.

No offence but at this level you were 2 years ago with this module....

 

 

That greyblock? I was saying about the more or less final one.

I am really looking forward to this interesting cold war aircraft. Hopefully we see this in early access release some time in 2021. As far as my wishes I am just looking for the raft of aircraft I already own to come out of early access.

A true heavy duty landing gear in Soviet designs, designed to land on unprepared fields like muddy crop field or sand road.

Need to land? Take a few bulldozers and flatten the field, smooth the surface and that is where those things can land and take-off without stucking in the ground.

 

Can't wait to see those systems animated and textured.

Beautiful and a mess at the same time. I wonder how many versions they went through before they got it to work. :)
