You've done it - you just set me back 100 quid. :ph34r:

 

lol. I was lucky, as I already owned the original, it was only 9.99 for me, and i had enough DCS miles to cover that for free!

 

I love the ability to look at a target, and with one button press slave the Tpod to it and deploy weapons on it. And the laser guided rockets are way way to much fun.

Every video I watch makes me want to buy it because it's a cool azz A-10 and every video I watch reminds me that I will never, ever master systems that complex, so I shouldn't buy it.

 

Bummer. :(

Where did all that common sense come from?

It has not stopped us before, you better shape up!

Before you know it , you trade in your gaming rig for a lawn mower “because you really did not need it”.

You must stay on the path, never surrender. 
Woohoo, dangeeous thinking there, buddy

Troublemaker! :angry:

 

It's the $112 price tag that keeps me from buying it. If it was half that, I would buy it. I'm still thinking about it, but I fired up the Su-25A yesterday, The Pickup Truck of Death, and it satisfied my cravings for a big fat "Kaboom!" airplane. Ya gotta love firing rockets the size of telephone poles. And I do enjoy the A-10A a lot. It has a solid "Brrrrrrrrtttt" factor.

 

And it's the "Brrrrrrrrrttt" that matters.

Looks like fun - except for me.

I'm so clumsy that if we jammed, I'd actually drop the bass...

 

 

BTW: Had the game freeze on me abeam Beirut and abeam Haifa each - looks like the map needs a lot of improvement...

The thing with the Su-25A is it's fast to get into action. A couple of quick clicks and you're ready to fire a ton of stuff. With the A-10C it looks on the videos like you have to write out a paragraph of DOS code to do just about anything. 

 

"Configure sensor of interest left, china hat forward, slave to azimuth and align with left DMS and press down."

 

Congratulations! You turned on the windshield wiper!  :drink2:

 

How can you do all that while tearing around at treetop height and taking fire?

Looks like the Hornet is easier on my rig abovy Syria than the Viper.

Might be random.

 

I don't even dare pulling the Tomcat out of the hangar-deck, unless they're optimising the map.

 

The A-10C's SOI and SPI stuff is an enigma to me. DMS and TMS seem to do entirely unrelated stuff by default.

Is that missplaced auto-assigned controls, or does it actually work that way and I'll need to read through a bunch of X-Files to figure things out?

Yeah...not into that.

I like the idea of the MiG 15.

 

I love the idea of the A-10....BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRP!!!

But I'd need a simplified version - Gun Mode, Missile Mode, Bomb mode hot keys while my virtual pilot did all of the fancy MFD stuff for me.

Ok maybe a hot key to switch MFD modes, and maybe arm my gun...but dammit I have to draw the line there.

 

I mean I'd love to be able to operate all that stuff, but there's this little thing called "real life". 

 

Honestly, if you have time for all of that other stuff...you're sort of like a little bit cooler (slightly)  Dungeons and Dragon's geek IMHO and your probably don't have a girlfriend...just sayin.

Now you understand my issues with the BoX mission editor. :P

 

'Cause the A-10C can do 1001 tricks and it's super powerful, but the Mig-15 is kind of simplistic. I did try the Mig-15 when DCS had the free trial but it didn't float my boat. I think I found the cockpit visibility to be kind of poor. I want to see all that lovely eye candy on the maps.

The A-10A is perfect then. I really like it. Easy to manage, beaucoup "Kaboom!" and Brrrrrrrrrrrrt! to boot.

I will personally not endeavor on a discussion on what is easies to make a campaign in. Because the features in both is pretty  obvious powerful and complex. 
For making simple missions however dcs is head shoulder and ass in forward position. 
But I wish for a Gambit in DCS too. The quality of your work in GB speak for itself. 
I believe you could sell a great deal of campaigns there too

The A-10A is great. On sale for about $10 right now, and I think getting to the Brrrrrrrrt! is a two-click affair. First click for A2G on the HUD and second click for the GAU-8 and you're ready to go. Another click cycles the weapons on the pylons. Locking on a Maverick is only another click or two at most. It couldn't be simpler, and the A-10A carries a chit ton o' fun under the wings. 

 

And speaking of good intentions, look at all that love on them pylons. :biggrin:

Good call Canada,

 

If I fire up DCS quick usually it's in one of the Flaming Cliffs planes just because they are way simpler and easier to operate with limited time to learn all the systems.

True dat.

 

The exception for me is the Harrier. I spend more time managing the systems in that plane than all the others. But for some quick "beeg badaboom!" it's going to be the A-10A or the SU-25A.

DCS sale starts on Steam tomorrow. Not sure what or if I'll get anything. The F-14 is mighty cool, but I think it will still run about $80 on sale.

 

We'll see.

Hey at least they're gonna do it, at least ED got off the pot.  Massive $$$ coming EDs way!!! 

 

The difference is, though, that ED announces it, then completes does not complete it in ten years.

When Sturmovik team announces something, they work on it and actually release it in a reasonable schedule.

Actually, getting to do Brrrrrrt! in A-10A is a zero-click affair. If I remember correctly, cannon is a weapon in A-10A that can be fired in any mode. Sure, if you want to be fancy and aim the proper way, then it takes a couple of clicks first.

Yeah. But P 47 came along nicely. Looking at that. Mossie going to be a real winner.

P47 game out nicely, but did not come along particularly nicely. It was originally promised in 2015, then was kind of cancelled, because "all source material had been destroyed in a fire" and then finally came out in 2020. The result is good, though.

I have several products that DCS announced and then released. And it's been less than 10 years. ;)

 

And fair is fair, BoX has stuff that can be bought now but not received for 6 to 12 months, is that right? Delays and waiting periods are everywhere.

One click! I claim victory. :dance:

 

You have to at least put the HUD from NAV to A2A or A2G mode. Two clicks if you want the sight in A2G mode. Byzantine, I grant you that, but required none the less.

I've learned 0.001% of the systems, but I managed to BRRRRRRRRTT! and the gunsight is really nice. Much fancier than the A-10A. Gonna get some MK-84 action going.
