Tarawa needs some love


Recommended Posts

The USS Tarawa needs a major overhaul IMHO. It is dated to say the least. I hope it is brought up to SC standards or better. Not just operationally but cosmetically as well.  The padeyes are funny looking. FYI, IRL she sits in Hawaii close to Ford Island and looks the same as in DCS: bland and dead. Perhaps it is time for a new LHD model. I love the free mod Juan Carlos. Vertical landings are addictive. The Harrier has so much more left in her. Along with all of the fixes that @Fri13 was mentioning, it would be beautiful! 


Off topic: I'd pay double for a TAV-8B (I know, I know, what's the point right?) and AV-8B II+! Razbam could go to the moon with this, IJS!

DO it or Don't, but don't cry about it. Real men don't cry!

The Tarawa will get a major overhaul, at least graphically. Razbam posted some screenshots on their discord some time ago and recently confirmed that the new model will come with the next update scheduled for next wednesday 

 

Edit: Screenshots from early February:

Razbam promised to make a AV-8B+ once ED has completed Hornet A-G radar. As the + variant is otherwise same as N/A except throttle has one button and spring loaded centering wheel more, DMT removed (no TV or LST) and same radar MPCD pages as Hornet. Then just the few radar related new logic to use existing HOTAS functions.

 

And they said they as full price for that.

Yeah, I've been quietly following that radar bird stuff. The Harrier has been in my hangar for a while. I pulled it back out a month ago after a lot of A-10CII shenanigans. The AV-8B is a unique bird. It deserves all that is possible IMO. For some reason, and this is no negative jibe at anything but trapping in the Hornet is way too easy. Maybe it's the trap physics. Hovering however is a trip! We just need the LSO comms to tell us "Clear to Cross and Clear to land", and of course, the lens working again!

To be fair, the way the weapons system and MC works is fairly different in that bird. Plus probably Aero, and then adding stuff like glorious spamraaaaam!
