Where do I start? Firstly this isn't Hawx or FSX. This is the penultimate simulation (at least in my opinion). While I missed out on Falcon, even
though I am discovering it now, the DCS series has a bright future.
They modeled the Ka-50 beautifully and down to the exact detail. Just look at the cockpit and try flying the thing on simulation mode and you will
find what I am talking about. I bought it a few days ago, prior to some research and reading some of the manual, and I am hooked. While LOMAC decided
to die and give me the mscvrt.dll error and since I was stuck in DLL hell I decided why not?
This isn't a install it and play kind of game. It takes research, training and skill just to get it to fly without "skipping around like a demented
frisbee". But after you put in that time and when that dedication pays off you will feel great. It's a study sim. The next DCS module will be the
A-10. The A-10C model is close to being finished if not done and they are population the terrain. Apparently in August they will be talking about the
project in more detail. Rumors have it that after this we get the AH-64 Apache. I don't know how they will get the dual seat working in single player
but online play is going to be epic.
Then the rest is unknown. Some say they will do an F-16 module to rival Falcon 4.0 AF or they might do an naval operations module with the likes of
the F/A-18 and Su-33. (We need a new carrier ops sim) But the overall plan is to have all of these jets / slicks integrated online. So they will add
each module to work directly with the prior one. For instance whenever the A-10 comes out, if you own both you can fly both, if you don't you only
fly whatever one you have, ect. Integrated battlefields sound epic.
I am still waiting for a MiG-29 simulation. ED are Russian..come guys choose the right one So are there any other simmers here on ATS?
