I have had DCS on my computer for awhile but due to life’s work and family never really got into it. I am soon to be 67 years old and my wife bought me a TM 1600m Hotas for Xmas this year. My question is now I want to concentrate on DCS, what would be the best aircraft to use?  
BTW I own but have not flown most of them.

I recommend you to start with the A-10C (II). The Warthog has a lot of systems and has access to a large arsenal of weapons. Once you've mastered the Hog, you can learn other modules like the F/A-18C or the F-16C fairly easily.

 

See you in the air! 😉

The best aircraft to use would be the one you like most, for whatever reason. Look at what you have already and pick the one that you find most interesting. 🙂

That is my problem is the systems are so in depth that’s why I like the F-14 as you have a RIO to help. I have the F-14 but have not yet gotten a lot of time in it.

Welcome to DCS! 😉

But you can also switch to a kind of arcade mode by changing certain options in the options/gameplay menu.
