TrueGrit wishes all of you a very happy holiday and a happy new year! I hope you enjoy the latest updates from the interior! Stay tuned, next updates will follow in the new year 😊  

Hi all, any news on progress? It's been a while...

Happy Sunday guys!   I not only have a great picture from last weeks session, but also a link to a podcast with TrueGrit's founder, Gero, for you!   https://cruiselevel.de/.../die-simulanten-episode

If this really is the Meteor missile, is that any indication that we could be getting a relatively advance model/tranche of the Eurofighter?

Dear TrueGrit team.

 

1. Why isn't this photo 1080p?

2. Why is this quite pixel-ish?

3. Is this even DCS game-engine?

Oh goody another uber missile in the game. MP players will certainly rejoice <sarcasm>.

 

And I'm a bit surprised that good documentation for this is out in the open. Especially the 3rd party datalink stuff.

Nothing is out in the open about the Meteor missile. It's barely getting into service. EuroGmbh probably told True Grit to create a missile with the usual wikipedia info like burn time, range and speed; then add a seeker that's close to the in-game aim-120 with a few tweaked value and boom, you got a Meteor with a nice skin.:D

MBDA afaik is not part of Eurofighter GmbH, meaning that the latter has nothing to do with the Meteor and are likely the wrong people to ask whether it can be included in the game or not.

Looking promising! If you guys manage to get enough proper info for a proper Meteor, it'd be an interesting addition to the sim. But Meteor or not, I'll likely be flying this aircraft from day 1.

The vCVW-17 is looking for Hornet and Tomcat pilots and RIOs. Join the vCVW-17 Discord.

Likewise here.

I can clearly see all other modules in my hangar taking the back seats upon release of the tiffy.

My combat flight sim days started with this aircraft (famous DID Typhoon).

According to this post, ED will be making that call as weapons will henceforth only be developed in house. Guess we've got too many issues with third parties making guesses about missile Kinematics. lol

Honestly kinematics is probably the one thing that can be modeled vaguely accurately. Its more things like guidance laws, ECCM effectivness, seeker performance that are the more important things when it comes to missiles and overall those aren't modeled well for most missiles in DCS at this point IMO.

I agree with you, having them do all the CFD work with the same team/program should help to eliminate bias. Even if the result is not completely "accurate" to RW the missiles will be accurate with relation to each other in Sim from a purely aerodynamic standpoint. Which is a step in the right direction.

 

 

 

As far as actual effectiveness goes though, your also right, I think a huge misconception on these forums is that Kinematics is the most important aspect with regards to actual PK and IRL its probably the least important. :D

 

 

 

For meteor again, That's great that it can touch me at the ranges they publish, and I believe it. But the real question is, how well can it see me at pitbull with such a huge RTR zone? Does the seeker work good enough in a heavy EW environment? What kind of database of RF threats does MBDA have to incorporate into the weapons counter countermeasures? How vulnerable is it's datalink to Jamming? How effective are it's degraded modes? Your going to run into at lot of questions like that before we get into how Fast? how High? ect. kinds of questions.

If we use F-14/Phoenix as an empirical hype example, answers are:

 

It sees you perfectly

 

Yes

 

All of them

 

It isn't

 

Very effective

 

Very fast

 

Very high

 

Sorry, couldn't resist. Consider this as an attempt of humor

Considering ED has been messing with the AMRAAM for over a year now and it's now worse than ever in CCM and has still pretty questionable guidence this is barely a good thing. There is no difinitive state for the amraam it seems. Weren't we supposed to have a new missile API and "improved" amraam by the beginning of this year already?

Sorry, but I suggest you go back to Falcon BMS and come back after another 20 years because of that gamebreaking AMRAAM-issue, which must bother you everyday for years right? You must've learned by now how different software-developing can work out, don't you?

 

Maybe Command Modern Operations is something for you? Lot's of stuff to complain about there as well. The Harpoon community wars back then managed to destroy the Harpoon series completely. Lunatics even today participate in wars against CMO/CMANO as if nothing else in life matters AFTER DECADES. This is sick...

Yes, it's called Portable Data Store in Eurofighter parlance.
