Mirage F1 project update

MIRAGE F1 BY AERGES ENGINEERING SL

Dear DCS users,

We are happy to announce you the development of Mirage F1 by Aerges Engineering SL.

We can imagine your surprise for such news, but you shouldn’t be concerned, we have decided to work on Mirage F1 with Aerges instead of AvioDev for business reasons. Aerges Engineering is formed, mainly, by the same highly experienced Team components that have been developing the advanced version of the C-101. We are, basically, the same people. Some of the members have left and some are new, though they have already been working on C-101 for some time, but we keep the same core, the same or even more experience, know-how, enthusiasm and general technical knowledge. Furthermore, all the Team members are engineers and/or pilots.

All this means that you can expect to get a Mirage F1 module with same or even higher level of precision, quality, attention to detail and professionalism than our previous module, the C-101.

In this preview, we show you some screenshots of the Mirage F1-CE cockpit, with accurate and detailed 3D model and PBR textures, including some external AI models. And, in the coming weeks or months, we will continue presenting you screenshots and/or videos, as well as development news.

We have been working on advanced flight model, engine and main aircraft systems coding for a year and a half. We can say it is, basically, completed, and we now have to work on systems interaction with cockpit, clickable cockpit, and specific aircraft systems.

Our module is absolutely based on real data, that means that what you will get is the most accurate simulation that can be done of the real Mirage F1, with professional quality. What you will see is the real airplane with real data. Obviously, since what we use is real data, any real performance charts, like time to climb, energy-maneuverability, etc. will be fulfilled.

The versions we are working on are all the Spanish Air Force versions, since those are the ones we have real info for, that is, Mirage F1-CE, Mirage F1-EE, Mirage F1-BE and Mirage F1-M, though the latter will take longer to be finished as it includes new avionics, which require a huge amount of additional work. We estimate to have first version, Mirage F1-CE, ready in Early Access in about half a year. We would think about doing other countries versions if we get real data for them, but it’s not part of our main target right now.

For those of you who are not totally familiarized with this aircraft: The Mirage F1-CE is the basic single cockpit version, the Mirage F1-EE is the refuelling (multi-role) version, the Mirage F1-BE is the two seater and the Mirage F1-M is the modernized version with new avionics.

We hope you enjoy the pictures.

Best regards,

The Aerges Team

MIRAGE F1 BY AERGES ENGINEERING SL Dear DCS users, We are happy to announce you the development of Mirage F1 by Aerges Engineering SL. We can imagine your surprise for such news, but you shouldn’t

Here you have an update on the 3D model and texture work. Pictures of the Mirage F1 M: https://www.facebook.com/AergesEngineeringSL/posts/222616346193006

seconded. having had access to the SAAF musuem F1C that scored a mig kill in Angola, I have always loved the F1. I am so glad they are taking their time and fleshing it out. Really looking forward to

Merry X-mas to you too. Fantastic news.

- Jack of many DCS modules, master of none.

- Personal wishlist: F-15A, F-4S Phantom II, JAS 39A Gripen, SAAB 35 Draken, F-104 Starfighter, Panavia Tornado IDS.

Excellent news!!! Really looking forward to it! Quick question, which version supports SAHR missiles?

-------

 

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.

Great new that the F1 wasn't forgotten.

 

I hope you add the "unrealistic" S-530F for gameplay reason ( to simulate the AA abilities of nearly all non Spanish F1 version ) to your products, it would greatly increase the attractiveness of those to non Spanish Customers and make the F1 a decent counter part to the F-14 and the upcoming Mig-23 and F-4E

 

Excellent news!!! Really looking forward to it! Quick question, which version supports SAHR missiles?

 

they all do ( but the -M ? ), the Spanish versionS are however stuck with the original late 50s R-530 which is quite useless,

 

Will any of these versions be exocet capable?

 

they aren't

Holy crap!! Amazing! With all the work that's gone into the C-101, I thought the Mirage would be much farther away.

 

Does anyone know what weapons we can expect from each variant? I know there are lists out there for generic F1s, but it's unclear whether those were also used by the Spanish Air Force, or whether Aviodev/Aerges will stretch things a bit (like they did with the Sea Eagle on the C-101) to give us more options.

 

edit:

Any news on what armaments will be included/developed for this platform?

In addition, you specifically mention the F1-EE is the refuelling (multi-role) version. Any plans to allow us to buddy fuel?

 

Eh, beat me to it. If I understand things correctly, I don't think the EE can do buddy refueling, but it has a refueling probe unlike the CE.

I absolutely love this jet, very interesting service history among many airforces. Also, I hope I didn't misunderstand what I just read but are we getting 4 versions ? I am absolutely trembling by the excitement. Wish you guys the absolute best in achieving your goals !

Full fidelity su27/mig29 ?

Awesome stuff! Especially with all those planned variants! Really like what I'm seeing here!

 

I wonder if anybody can tell me the difference between the baseline B and C vs the Spanish export variants we're getting? Somebody mentioned the SARH/IR Super 530 on the baseline (French) variants but not the Spanish ones (presumably they have a downgraded RADAR that doesn't support it (no PDI/PSIC?) or something?).

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)

Yes, you will get 4 flyable versions with this module.

Excellent news, thank you! :D

 

I get bored quickly with the modern stuff, so any module from this era is a very welcome addition to DCS!

According to Wikipedia and Draken International's website, the -M has an upgraded radar which includes sea-searching modes. Wikipedia claims it can use the Exocet, and cites Jane's All The World's Aircraft 1988–89 as its source.
