  1. Viper Pilot is a fantastic book that tells you about the actual lifestyle of an F-16 pilot through the eyes of one. While it is filled with some technical information about operating the F-16, it is mostly "seen" through the lens of someone who already understands the systems and is just employing them (the Pilot). If you want to understand the most important part of any aircraft (the pilot), and the cultural and lifestyle of fighter pilots of the time period (late 80s-2000's), then Viper Pilot is a must-have. If you want a technical book, and you don't care about the above information then get the Modern Viper Guide 2nd Edition. Viper Pilot is a great book, people who think it's "trash" must not just care about the story of what it's actually like to be a fighter pilot. Of course, that's fine, but the book is definitely not bad at all because it's not what certain people are looking for.
  2. Not anytime soon lol. The F-15E will be the most complex DCS module to date
  3. I believe it was said somewhere that they wouldn't do a late B model because they might as well just go do a D model at the point. The upgraded B's saw a lot of action in a very short amount of time, but for scenario wise it makes much more sense to come out with the D. Also be better for sales.

    Because they want the E model, that simple. The E model has more export success, and therefore most likely to have more sales there. What has the A & C done since 1999....??? Certainly nothing involved in combat! Which is the total opposite of the E model!
  5. The Iranian Tomcats of the 1980s are the original Tomcats from the 1970s. I personally see no point of having a 90s Tomcat with our current B model.
  6. They also claimed over 80 Tomcats destroyed during the Iran-Iraq War, even though Iran only had 79...
  7. The F-14A is the Tomcat to me! It's engine problems is what makes the Tomcat unique!
  8. Mostly 14th Fighter Squadron Block 50s
  9. Just get to the merge to employ AIM 9X and its gg
  10. +1 million By far the highest quality module ever released for DCS, and I would argue for any flightsim.
  11. I know Wags already answered, but also think of how many more scenarios that you can use legacy hornets for. Much more operators as well
  12. Umn yes they are, read it in another article. Why would they ever buy just 8? What about the rest of the C model fleet???? Which is the whole point of this jet
  13. Okay so ED won't ever publish a full fidelity Mikoyan/Suhkoi module, got it. But 3rd Partys alrighty and is looking into it!
  14. https://www.military.com/dodbuzz/2019/03/12/air-force-asks-4400-more-airmen-new-f-15ex-fighter-budget-request.html Well, its actually happening, new F-15EX are coming along to replace the C models. Planned total of 144. First F-15 for USAF since what 2003?
