The Blackbird? The "combat area" would be barely big enough to fly a full circle at cruise speed. You have choice of two missions then: Right hand turn, then second mission is the left hand turn...

 

This sounds like an engaging, deep experience to me.

Sometimes I fly serious, but other times I fly like I know it is just a game

As long as the Fw190 that you're intercepting is turning the same way as you are it maybe is. ;)

Cool but when can I shoot a Stearman down with an F-22?

It wouldn't be team killing in DCS, the community there decided years ago that both teams should be able to fly anything they want, including planes from the other side.

They wouldn't do that silly - the F-22 and Stearman are on the same side.

The F-22 is being released with the Fokker DVII-F and the Antarctica map.

SR-71 should come first - I need something to intercept in my mix of 40's, 50's and 90's aircraft.

 

Used to fly the SR-71 in FSX (or FS9, not sure) and it was a riot.

 

I'd buy a DCS Blackbird.

Found a little f18 Hornet teaser picture on the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map video at the -5.49 minute mark. The picture only flashes up for a split second (subliminal advertising),so can be missed easily.

The I-16 is incredibly effective at dodging 2nd-3rd Gen SAM missiles and can outmaneuver an F-5-E at sea level.

 

It has an incredibly low radar cross section but it relies on full-visual/full-manual IFF.

 

A2G rockets are effective against 3rd Gen battle tanks like the M1 Abrams and older 2nd Gen hardware like the T-72.

 

You may have a little trouble catching up to an SR-72 at altitude but it is surprisingly effective at intercepting the UH-1 and civilian passenger trains.

 

Also, Fink... Don't encourage them...  :mellow:

I meant the fact there will be not much to do with those kind of planes. Ghosts comments are funny, but in the end it's a bit sad that in a couple of months or years you will be able to buy a I-16 for DCS to fly on a 1944 Normandy map. Why would one ask?....

Just remember, for the most part, don't turn inside of the I-16 in your SR-71...that's just stupid.

DCS is such a disjointed product, it's a bit absurd.

 

I'm having a blast with the Huey and the Mig 15bis in VR though.

It would be cool if they could do a Vietnam map with the phantom etc

Not sure how Vietnam would make it any less disjoint. There isn't a single aircraft in the game that served in the Vietnam war nor are there any planned that I'm aware of.

Mig 15

MiG-15, MiG-21 and P-51 are my favorite modules with the first two being absolutely marvelous. Shame with first one there is little to do and second one is a cannon fodder for more modern jets high or F5Es down low. That leaves Mustang to play around.
