Apparently Leatherneck is doing the F8 Crusader along with the Corsair.

Where did you see that? F8 Crusader may get me back.

Hey guys,
while we are making sure Corsair will shine in all its glory, the other team prepares to give wings to yet another amazing bird... You've heard the saying: "When you're out of F-8's - you’re out of fighters."

DCS is looking pretty good recently. F-14 is gonna keep me busy for a while.

 

F-8, F-4, A-6, Mig 19, Mig 21 could get a pretty good Vietnam scenario going even if the aircraft model/variant isn't exact to the time-frame.

All we need is a Nam map.

I could definitely get into that F-14...I like everything about that idea.

Is the "jester AI" up and running?

Yep most of the functionality is there from what I've seen, only thing Jester can't due at the moment is work the LANTIRN TGP.

I look forward to that in 5 years. Until then...

Wait a minute, didn't leatherneck dissolve into heatblur and ...the other one, magnitude?

Magnitude 3 kept all the old branding and social media stuff whilst heatblur used new stuff.

Leatherneck did say they were working on another unannounced aircraft alongside the eagle didn't they? Wonder if the F-8 was what they were working on.

Ht usually isnt good for games. I was running the dcs in SP smoothly with my rig but with gtx 1060 3gb. I was asking about mp. Well I will try mp when my card arrives.

I'm sure it will, they've been working on the corsair for a few years already.

I love the lighting and materials natural reaction to light in the latest versions of DCS. They made some huge improvements in that respect. They are way ahead of everyone else in flight sims when it comes to lighting.

 

Really well done.:salute:

You and I are tuned, me too, but I bought the Mig 19 too. And I have absolutely no idea when I get to fly it. Not yet even begun the Harrier weapon system training

Hornet not yet even set up the controls. Forgot about all I learned about the Viggen . Need to freshen up on the KA 50 too. A 10 c I have forgotten all about it, and I spent many hours on it

I have done the same all too often, making purchases and never totally learning the new planes and then forgetting what I learned on the older buys. 

I finally settled with only the WWII fighters and can easily switch from one to the other and enjoy the selection.

The good thing about the F-14 is it has relatively simple avionics compared to the F-18 or A-10 so once you learn it it will be easier to retain that knowledge.

The most complex thing on the F-14 is the radar which the RIO operates, so if your goal is to just fly it then you'll have significantly less to learn.

That certainly sounds promising for me thanks for the info.

Yep RIO is the one who does all the real work, the pilot just flies the plane. Jester AI takes alot the the load off the player so all you really need to worry about is flying and fighting.

 

Can't wait to get my hands on the F-14 it's gonna be a very fun aircraft to multicrew.

Yeah same here, so many I started learning but never finished - like the F/A - 18. Warthog as well.

I did take the time about three years ago to learn the KA-50 and could fly combat in it - great fun.

I need to get it set up on my new controllers and fly it again, has been a while. Hopefully I can remember most of it.

It's here!

 

 

Much better - that's what I was waiting for.

Piss-poor music selection for the previous trailer.

I know that the actual Top Gun music is copywrited and they can't use it - but come on...the music they chose was just awful.

 

Mostly though I'm happy to see carrier ops given some love.

Needs some deck crew, but looking good.

Just make sure you have enough hard drive space before you start. My DCS folder is like a fat kid that tries to take all the sits in the room. It's already sitting at 154GB.:wacko:

Yikes. I would have enough room, but not for much else.

Really? I thought the music in this trailer sucked but thats just me. The other song was much better imo and is the reason I liked the launch trailer.

 

Carrier ops are gonna be great and I can't wait for the USS Forrestal and Deck crew to be released.

Something about hearing that Top Gun soundtrack and watching/hearing jets take off and fly around that gets me every time. Goosebumps.
