  1. 7,62x39 is usually not what is meant when reffered to 7,62mm 7,62x51 is the Standard and that round has basically the double muzzle energy. 7.62mm, Armor Piercing, M993 has a armour penetration of 7mm against high hardness armor (HHA) It would be possible to penetrate most parts of a BRDM with such ammunition.
  2. You're all just a step away from treatment for Holo Addiction...http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Holo-addiction. I'm immune, I have only one good eye and so the sensation of 3D can't be faked for me since I dont know it in RL neither.
  3. Ich habe DCS aufgegeben. Das hier ist einfach eine Baustelle die nie richtig fertig werden wird.
  4. Right. it started with a Flanker an d it still the same Flanker like in Flanker 2.0. Nothing wrong with it so far. Considering the small maps in DCS:W we will have the MiG-29S & R-77 as a counter measure against the F-15 & AIM-120 combo. Range was never an Issie with the MiG-29 when you applied a lite bit of fuel discipline. It can take off and climb very well without AB. Since it recived TWS and the ability to attack two targets at once it got much better. Once the PFM fpr the MiG-29 is out it will be much better I guess.
  5. ...also, successive hard manouvers can lead to the missaligning of the HSI. Also a feature, not a bug.
  6. Unless DCS suddently went to become a 64 Bit Application, how is it consume more than 4 GB of RAM? If it does, that sounds more like a veritable memory leak or swap file occlusion. If an application consumes more then 4GB of Memory it better uses 64bit to circumvent the inevitable 32bit 4GB memory adress limit. I have the feeling ED is trying to sell us a compact family car fitted with a Truck engine as a purpose tailored sports coupe.
  7. Jane's F-15 and Jane's F/A-18 always had some jetliners in the missions, especially at campaign start when RoE was tight. Also the DID series startignn with TFX ovwer EF-2000 to F-22 ADF always featured civilian traffic. I usually use the IL-76 and Yak-40 for that purpose.
  8. I basically said the current MP arms race in modules and hardware does not bring any benefit to me and im very content with single player on a 2D screen. In MP there is often a lack of padlock view that I like, in favor of VR or TIR solutions which I dont like and I also like exterior view but no labels etc. I just noticed in the last year, if you stop MP you suddently don't need to have to newest stuff... goes well for ArmA III and DCS as well.
  9. The 3rd dimension is gone RL and VR with just ONE good EYE. There are a lot of eyesight problems that make proper use of binocular glasses VR quite uncomfortable or even im possible. I, for example, suffer from scars on the corneal. While I can deal with it quite good in RL it makes VR uncomfortable. I have to look asquint and blink the ye to get a 3D perception. A simple TFT screen is pure relaxation for me.
  10. ... you will appreciate 2D once your vision goes whacky around your late 40's. Im physically unable to use 3D since I lost an acceptable eyesight on the right eye. What helped was a bigger screen. it was also helpfull to skip online play to stop the current quite unhealthy hardware "arms race" that is going on in the community.
  11. the F-104 because it was widespread in cold war europe well into the 80's... just like the MiG-21.
  12. I never buy new components BEFORE THE OLD ONES CEASE TO FUNCTION.
  13. If you do it gently you can land and take off from the grass next to runways with the Su-27 and Su-25A. I manages to do that 3 times in a row on VA server with 20% fuel and empty pylons.
  14. Tinkering with setitngs to get decent performance.
  15. Der Microsoft Flugsimulator ab FS9 hatte eine sehr gute virtuelle Flugschule. Näher dran kommt man an eine Flugausbildung wohl nicht auf dem PC.
  16. Hall sensors instead of potentiometers make big change. The X-55 turned out to be crappy inside quite often, so internal changes are welcome.
  17. A sidenote: the german Tornados currently deployed to turkey to fly recce over Syria could not fly at night until they got a retrofit just weeks ago. The implementation of NVG in 2015 with ne LCD displays was done in a hurry and the cockpit lighting did blind the pilots to an extend that safe flying was difficult. So much about just using NVGs in an aircraft gives you NVG capability
  18. Both models of the Su-25 have the engine running animation reversed. When you start or stop the left engine the animation is shown for the opposite side. In case of an engine failure or fire the failed one will appear as still running while the good one will show as stopped.
  19. No, that's a feature. A lot of player still underestimate the sophistication in the two Su-25. You have to keep in mind that the Su-25T and later Su-25A were the very first AFM models back then in FC1 setting the benchmak at that time.
  20. That way the alignment last only for a short time, any hard bank or medium G-load will throw it all off and neither ADI nor HSI will work properly.
  21. I guess ED is just turning DCS into a program that only harware techies that upgrade all 6 months are able to enjoy.
