AWACS Module.

Does anyone remember playing the AWACS missions in Total Air Way back in the day? Having a realistic radar picture then acting as a fighter controler vectoring various flights on various tasks, and best of all being able to drop in to any individual flyable aircraft to complete that individual mission, or simply drop in to the cockpit for 10 minutes to ensure that bombs end up on target, then swap out to an intercept to make sure enemy bombers don't get through.

 

For those who have no idea what Total Air War was, the AWACS missions were essentially what we have in DCS Combined Arms, but for air combat. Vector CAP or interceptors to identify unknown contacts or engage incoming enemy aircraft. Vector fighters to escort friendly units or assign strike missions to on-call CAS.

 

Sadly I can't find any video footage showing how the AWACS mode worked in TAW but those who played it will know.

 

Something else I loved from TAW and which I think would add tremedously to immersion in DCS is background radio chatter. In TAW the background radio chatter was generated based on what was actually going on in the world around you. It'd be great to have background radio chatter in DCS.

I'd forgotten about LOTATC! That's exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of.
