  1. Your question is like someone asking "how long is a piece of string ?" It's impossible to answer without providing more background and detail to the question. If you want some answers you'll have to give examples of what (precisely) do you think is irrational about the behaviour of the planes. You'll also want to give an explanation of why you think that behaviour is irrational - preferably with some real life documentation that demonstrates the behaviour in game isn't as it should be in real life. Lastly you'll want to provide a track where the behaviour you believe is irrational is exhibited. Until you expand on your question and provide examples, no one will know what you're talking about, and if they don't know what you're talking about they can't provide answers.
  2. Only in the same way that we're (mostly) still using intel processors ...
  3. They charge what the market will bear. As Dwight D. Eisenhower* suggested might happen, the military–industrial–congressional complex has become the backbone of the US economy, and the Govt (congress) will pay what is necessary to keep it in business. * Dwight D. Eisenhower used the term in his Farewell Address to the Nation on January 17, 1961 : "A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction... This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."
  4. About 2057 that turbine noise is going to give the DCS sound engineers something to play with.
  5. LM bought all the design work for the 141 off YAK, & if you allow for changes made to reduce radar signature, they're very similar looking aircraft.
  6. & from that was born the F-35...
  7. Have you never watched a drag race in your life ???
  8. They are - & are in game - you just have to find somewhere flat. Tried in the N of Syria - thought I'd found a straight road with no power-poles, but it turns out it's dirt with a road texture over it (See the dust kicking up) (Damn - just saw Ironhand has already posted. Oh well, made the track, posting anyway.)
  9. You can't use curves with E.D. FFB - the FFB doesn't get 'curved' so the stick position and FFB get out of synch & the trim stops working correctly. Always been that way since LOMAC
  10. Leaving aside all the other ways the West could have accessed details of the Su-25's performance and capabilities, the Iraqi air-force reintroduced Su-25 to its stable of aircraft in 2014 - So they've been flying while the US were operating from bases there. There is literally zero chance that every single piece of technology in those aircraft, and every set of test results anyone might want to do to evaluate the aircraft, has not been handed over for inspection to the US military
  11. I guess it will, as it should…
  12. Wiki If you're getting flickering at 60 Hz or below, turn your brightness up.
  13. This would get you 6 active Indonesian military airbases + all the civilian airports, & 9 bases that are either US bases run in Australia, joint US + Aus bases or Aus bases (4 military airbases and plenty of civilian airports). More than half water, Lot of desert or uninhabited space in Australia / jungle in Papua. Closest bases only separated by the Timor Sea. Indonesia currently or has in the past used a good selection of the fixed and rotary wing aircraft in DCS, as well at other military Eqp from both the West and East (Currently flying the Su-27, Su-30 & the F-16, AH-64, Mi-24, Bo 105 & Mi-8 [export version], sabre, etc.). Everyone else could conceivably be visiting Close enough to the China Sea to conceivably have some of those currently bumping heads in the region drift over or to imagine a circumstance where there may be an occupation in place or underway. Australia is a significant enough strategic ally of the US to expect the US & all other allies to move in, and the Australians to invite them.
