Corsair Hype!


Recommended Posts

Hands down my most anticipated near term Module. Thank you for all your hard work bringing the beautiful bird to DCS. Can't wait to beat the air into submission with her.

Would be more hyped for a Zero but I´ll take the Corsair as well ^^

 

Same here.

 

We now have a sub-forum for the Corsair, things are moving, that's positive! 🙂

Once it's out of EA, it might actually by my first WWII module. I'm probably gonna wait until a free trail rolls around (it seems it could become a regular thing around here) before I buy it, but I'm strongly considering it. It's one thing the other WWII sim isn't gonna have for the foreseeable future, from the looks of it, and it's a carrier airplane used by both USN and USMC.

 

Fun Corsair fact: it could be used, and flown in combat, alongside the F-8 Corsair II, provided the mission took place in Central America. 🙂 Honduras actually used the Corsair until 1979, and the little known Football War was the where the last serious prop-on-prop air combat took place, in which it scored kills on Salvadoran planes, one of which was P-51D... and two others were also Corsairs. 🙂

So like the US  invades Honduras or something and uses F8's vs F4U's?

I suppose, for instance because they didn't have enough of "preventing the spread of communism" after Vietnam, or if the thing with Contras turned out even uglier than it actually did. Wouldn't be much of a fight, I suppose, but attacking prop planes in a fast jet is trickier than one might think.

Having done it many times on blueflag against the "meme"-51 I understand.

Yeah, I feel like the plane is getting close. I wonder though if the carrier will be a "later in EA" sort of thing.

I sure hope not! Getting the Corsair without the carrier would be like buying a pack of cigarettes with your last dime and then realizing that your lighter is out of fuel!! Or....buying a really nice bottle of wine and after getting back to the hotel room, realizing that you don't have a cork screw!! 🤣

Ironically the f4u was relegated to ground based missions for quite a while due to problems with visibility for landing on a carrier. It took a new approach method, that's the Brits developed, for it to be on a carrier.

.... which is why an Illustrious class carrier would be a better bet than an Essex class 😉

 

in all seriousness, the Corsair saw ETO and PTO service with RN FAA - rather than being a land based USMC fighter

Even cooler: You could do a french career directly transitioning from the Corsair to the Crusader.

 

Now, granted, they were flying AU-1s (12 Flottille) and F4U-7s (14 Flottille) and transitioned to F-8E(FN)s, but thats close enough...
