    Yeah, I know. But thanks for bringing up Peruvian one as I missed that one.

    I wouldn't mind Su-22 with the IFR probe. I love AAR and hate it for being such less than ideal in DCS.
  3. AI Hornet animations were long in the game. Player animations are supposedly being worked on but it takes huge amount of time and resources.
  4. Oh... I saw I'm a patch addict and came here thinking, I am too... Then I saw the photo and my jaw dropped, I got 20 on my wall - makes me tiny collector then. I even designed Hornets over Hormuz DCS patch but production cost was insane for me at the time... Very good idea though, a product such as DCS would be successful in selling those I think.
  5. In March 2018 Wags posted: However, not so long ago ED said they will add hose / basket physics to a wish list Also claiming (or acting as) new hose and basket physics was never the plan in the first place. So far we saw the new S-3 Viking 3D model in progress, but it was never confirmed (nor it was denied) that it will also include buddy store and AAR capability. It would be a huge surprise if S-3 Viking came with revamped / new hose and basket physics, but I feel we will be lucky if it comes in tanker role from day 1. Comms, physics and procedure across AAR mission for both systems (boom / basket) needs its "we want to make AAR the most realistic experience ever created for a PC" ED objective assigned. The sooner the better.

    Fun fact - Iraqi Air Force presented during one of their military parades, a modified Su-22M4, one aircraft was flying with IFR probe of Mirage F-1 and this was successful modification, there was even a video showing Fitter refueling from Mirage F-1 once...

    That was soviets wish, Tumansky R-29BS-300 turbojet was in surplus owing to reduction of MiG-23 -27 output. Lyulka AL-21 powerplant was needed for Su-24 and therefore in short supply. But, for example Poland, having rather enough of R-29, negotiated for AL-21s. In the end, Polish Air Force Fitters came with Al-21s. I also read somewhere that Soviets decided afterwards to offer Su-22 - so the export jet - to other customers with AL-21 engine only. I guess both R-29 and most certainly AL-21 are valid options and it will depend purely on developer and their plan of what to simulate.

    See, this is good input, thank you. Maybe try posting this to the developers as well. Maybe OctopusG knows this already (I would imagine) and they are on it. It is WIP after all. I remember when watching them taking off (real), they would in fact warm up to stop the engine vibrations and also spool up before take-off. Yeah, I hope developer is knowledgeable here

    Somebody said to me in YT comment that it is modular and can use retrofitting. If true I don't know, I asked maintenance guy once as I noticed two jets were different and he did not want to comment. Maybe he did not know...

    Sounds good. Let's ask developer what he thinks...

    We both agree. I want Russian language cockpit with English option available. You want English and don't mind Russian option. Why are we all even discussing it anyway? What do you think of touch down / roll out modelling shown in the vid? It looked like the driver was struggling a bit, was he not?

    This is now drifting a bit off topic, however it seems that general assumption is ALL simmers here have excellent command of English. What if people start to ask for cockpits in languages they understand.. French, Polish, German, Spanish.... Whatever it will be, I want realistic representation of the aircraft.

    Only if I forget something... Mostly though it just flows naturally. Thing is though, it stops being a simulation unless there is a operator country that recoded avionics to their language. What's wrong with learning those several labels and memorizing some Cyrillic characters? For example, do you know what Cy-22 is?

    Su-17

    So.. no official announcement, right? From what I understood so far, OctopusG just introduced I-16 to the shop without prior notice? Same for the Fitter? One day it will just become the first line of a change log?

    Really, learning the cockpit in Cyrillic is not as bad as it sounds. I am all in for EN cockpit option though for people who can't do that. People can have different capacity of learning as well. I am with draconus on this one, Soviet jet, Soviet tech, let it be in original language as designed and produced. As I said, Hind has got the EN cockpit option, people can use it if they want, it does not bother me, coz on my PC, in my DCS World all is set to what I want...

    ..oh some light source will be there for sure.
  18. Gierasimov

    Su-17

    But still ED provided for Hind, we'll see. If it's a selling point for people then it will be from day 1. But... We still need official announcement it is happening
  19. Gierasimov

    Su-17

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Cyrillic labels. Quick to learn as well. I am sure there will be EN option as well, at some point.

    So, from chrome cockpit renders to a short flight with startup in such a short time span? Wonder when was the video taken then. Promising definitely. Let's see if those papers get signed in time for the next newsletter announcement

    Su-17

    Yep! Same thoughts. Nice to see Su-22M4.
  22. Hi Does anybody know what options should be set to reliably use AI to throw TALDS in a general direction of a threat? Be it enemy fighters or SAM sites? So far it worked once for me - Attack map object, then I changed clouds type and it stopped dropping them. Changed back to what it was and it does not work anymore either.

    Time will show. Presently we don't know what we don't know. Seems that Mudhen is close, I agree.

    SVKSniper said he was in touch with a 3rd party but it wasn't

    Perhaps they can even secure a license to bring it to DCS at some point. Whatever OctopusG is up to.
