F-4 Everything?


Recommended Posts

Listening to the interview by the Grimm reaper I heard there is a chance to have multiple F-4 varriants. Please have multiple versions. I'd at least like one Navy.

I had also heard that. At the very least there should be at least two versions.

The F-4E to have the latest and greatest

And a Naval version that was used the most in Vietnam which I think is the F-4B. It was used by both the Navy and Marines.

Yes, he did hint and I am hoping it was coz of that it was being delayed...

 

 

I'd love to see the Naval version come along with it and with that it will be very marketable module. I'd be wishing to see the F-4J being developed or whichever is easier that would go with their version of F-4E.

I definitely want the F-4E, but if there is a chance for another F-4 then I would also buy the heck out of a naval F-4!

I'm not a big fan of multi crew aircraft in DCS (I like to be able to do everything myself :P), but still, some iconic aircraft will be day one purchases for me! The F-4(any version) is one of them.

 

 

 

(same with the F-14. I never properly learned it, I don't really like its flight characteristics, I never bothered to learn the RIO seat and hardly ever fly it. Still, I had to buy it, just because it's an awesome jet and occasionally sitting in it in VR, makes me feel good :D)

I really, really, REEAAALLY want the original late-ish 80s upgraded F-4E they were doing. As long as that is in, the more variants, the merrier!

Modules:

MiG-21Bis, Fw-190D, Bf-109K, P-51D, F-86F, Ka-50, UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, Hawk T1A, C-101, FC3, A-10C, CA, Mirage 2000C, Gazelle, L-39, MiG-15Bis, F-5E, AJS 37 Viggen, Yak-52, Christen Eagle II, MiG-19, I-16, JF-17, F-14, F/A-18C, Fw-190A8, AV-8B/NA, Spitifre IX

 

Mods:

A-4E, MB-339, Edge 540

 

Utility modules:

Combined Arms, NS 430 GPS

I guess with the Supercarrier module, ED came to reconisder a naval Phantom. Even though none of the DCS Supercarriers did carry the Phantom, the USS Nimitz made a tour with F-4J in 1976-77.

 

While the Phantom familiy is large with many interesting variants, it is understandable that not everything can be done. If there is only room for one variant, I still think it should be a post-Vietnam F-4E fighter-bomber. It is the most versitile and widely used variant and stays true to the classic characteristics that most acssociate with the Phantom (i.e. no 3rd party mid-life upgrades).

 

If a scecond variant would be possible, which would be absolutely Phantastic, I think it should be the F-4J. It is carrier capable and served in Vietnam and into the early 1980s (last deployments 1981 on USS Forrestal and USS Independence). If Vietnam is not a requirement, the last and hottest USN Phantom, the F-4S, stayed with USS Midway till 1986.

Honestly I would love multiple version, and also ED to setup a framework for multiply version in exosphere.... I would love F-18A, F-16A, F-15A in DCS...

All the people keep asking for capabilities to be modelled.... I want the limitations to be modelled.... limitations make for realistic simulation.

 

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a bit you realize the pig likes it.

I'd love as many versions as I can get.

 

At least one land-based and one naval variant.

 

For me, at least the F-4E and the F-4J

 

But also definitely room for the B/C/D and hopefully the K and the M.

Modules I own: F-14A/B, F/A-18C, Supercarrier, F-16CM, AJS-37, F-5E-3, MiG-21bis, Ka-50, A-10C (+ A-10C II), UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, P-47D, P-51D, FC3, MiG-15bis, Yak-52, CA, C-101, Hawk

Terrains I own: Syria, The Channel, SoH

 

System (RIP my old PC): Dell XPS 15 9570 w/ Intel i7-8750H, NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti Max-Q, 16GB DDR4, 500GB Samsung PM871 SSD (upgraded with 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD)

Agreed.

E and J is all I need.:joystick:

TISEO F-4E (ARN-101), but I’d really prefer the F-4S.

During the interview they stated that that was the original plan years ago, not that it still is in the works like that.

 

 

 

 

Damn...they are getting our hopes up :D

 

 

They did hint a lot...and here is me hoping that we get two Phantoms. One for AF and the other being Naval. Then again, it was originally designed by Navy.

 

 

Hoping IF WE get Naval, that its the J or N version.

It looks like ED needs to add some new carriers then. We either need a naval assets pack or a naval mod, DCS: Fleet Ops I'd rather have the second. The F-8 needs a refitted essex

I think there is definitly room for multiple Phantoms.

The F-4 Phantom is just one of those jets like the F-14 that has to be experienced to see what made it so special.

 

The F-14 is my second favorite jet after the Viggen. The Tomcat has been the only jet that I have been able to glide down to my nearest airport without a fuss after the engines died on me once. All my other jets have dropped like a brick after engine failure.

So many wonderful variants to choose from :)

 

I would go with the legendary F-4E and for the second version, the F-4S.

 

The F-4S was a F-4J modernized with smokeless engines, reinforced airframe, leading-edge slats for improved maneuverability. First flight July 1977; 302 converted.

 

The F-4J was an improved F-4B version for US Navy and Marine Corps, with emphasis on air-to-air combat capability improvement, which include: J79-GE-10 engines with 17,844 lbf (79.374 kN) of afterburner thrust each, AN/APG-59 pulse doppler radar coupled with the AN/AWG-10 Fire Control System for look-down shoot-down capability, larger main landing gear wheels resulting in wing bulges similar to F-4C, slatted tailplane, ailerons drooped 16.5° when landing gear and flaps were deployed to decrease the landing speed, zero-zero ejection seats, expanded ground attack capability, no IRST sensor under the nose; One USN pilot and one USN Naval Flight Officer became aces in F-4Js. First flight May 1966; 522 built.

 

The F-4J was easy to land on the carrier, very stable at slow speed during the approach.

 

Can't wait!!!

 

Cheers!

Did I miss something! My take was that sure, they would like an F-4 but it wasn’t anything currently on the front burner??
