  1. Another thing to note is full flaps in BFM was done for slow speed 1C fights irl by cheating smart F-14 pilots. A notable user of this was Snodgrass
  2. When the tomcat came out, all of our documents, BFM material, TACFORM, and just overall knowledge of the aircraft was the B. When the A came out, it was evaluated that the change from the B to the A was more work than necessary. The idea has been resurfaced on multiple occasions, but never went through. In the end, everyone is not at the same proficiency. Teaching brand new RAG students on the A tomcat when they can have an easier time in the B was decided easier. TLDR: We all would love to fly the F-14A, but the work to transition is just not a priority at the second. Another thing, funny enough, our liveries were initially made 1:1, so our BuNos and everything match up with the F-14A.
  3. VF-154 'Black Knights' are looking for pilots and RIOs who like to loft phoenixes, lob paveways, and do that cool pilot sh*t! If you are all about that tomcat life and are interested in simulating real life carrier operations, true-to-life combat formations, and realistic tactics, then stop on by to CSG-2! If you are sold already, visit our discord server! discord.gg/csg-2 Still aren't sure if you are interested? Check out our latest recruitment video! Not interested in flying tomcats? Check out our sister squadron, VFA-103!

  6. 120 KIAS is the rough stall speed. Don’t go below that
  7. Maybe it doubles the power of the burble
  8. The IZLID mentioned above is a laser pointer, funny enough.
  9. I was actually looking for this, but couldn't remember the exact name. Glove vanes ftw! That's the biggest downside of the fishbowl LANTIRN, yeah Forbidden F-14 MFD This and NS430 LAU-7 and LAU-138 are actually mixed up in the model numbers in game. LAU-138 is the big chaff holding one and the LAU-7 is the current one that magically dispenses chaff right now.
  10. I think a question most people have had with the recent updates to the FM, autopilot, and the recent comments about TARPS is how much more can we expect? Of course, there is only so many things that can be delivered, and only so many documents about the F-14A and F-14B from 1990-2000 to go around. The community knows the items intended on the Trello roadmap, but here are a list of some items/features that aren't there that I'd be curious about, some more reasonable than others. Newer LANTIRN Software Update (See any F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D combat cruise videos from 2000 and forward) Cockpit grease pen (FAC(A), aircraft modex, etc. RIO Radar mode alternative button caps (Here is a VF-154 F-14A with the different caps) LANTIRN 40K (Differentiate the older laser burning pod than the 40K upgrade) CATM-7 and CATM-54 HUD Video Export (Similar concept to the TCS and LANTIRN Export display) ALQ-167 (In coordination with the TARPS) HOZ Stab hydraulic resting position (Not level) Tape Recorder (HUD, TID, TCS) Huffer Cart (Static object?) Datalink waypoints between tomcats and E-2(?) BDU-57 LGTR Previously discussed forum topics that may not have been revisited in a while, or were already discussed as a no-go: Removable AAR Door Updated TID and/or TID Symbology AIM-54 Active when commanded (PDSTT with the 54 ACT Switch) AIM-54A HOJ Capability Late F-14A Upgrades Late F-14B Upgrades Dynamic Modexes Expanded Chaff Adapter Missile Speed Gate Functionality Chocks and Chains ACMI Pod Interaction with TRAINING mode(?) CBU-78 GATOR Of course I couldn't cover every single feature the F-14A and F-14B ever had. There are plenty of nonfunctional things that we currently have, but not every switch could be mentioned. Comment below any features I may have missed.
  11. With the 16x16 pixel display we get with the LANTIRN, I don’t think I could tell the difference between focused and unfocused, haha
  12. Just did a flight to test it, and it doesn't look like it really did anything
  13. https://trello.com/b/HsMiJggJ/heatblur-public-roadmap It's on the roadmap
  14. What’s your source with that functionality ever being a thing?
  15. I believe it’s around 120-130 seconds, but don’t quote me on it. I know they wanted it to be barely longer than 2 minutes
  16. Since a ton of AI aircraft are being remodeled/updated, I figured I’d shoot out the names of some aircraft that would make the airspaces inside of DCS a bit more “congested”. US Military: E-8 JSTARS (Basically A/G AWACS, ELINT) KC-10A (Tanker) RC-135V/W Rivet Joint (ELINT) RQ-4B Global Hawk/RQ-4C Triton (Maybe just make it RQ-4 with 2 different liveries for Navy and Air Force) C-12 Huron/RC-12 (Logistics and ELINT) C-20/C-37 Gulfstream (Logistics) C-2 Greyhound (Carrier Logistics) P-3 Orion/EP-3 (ASW, ELINT, Logistics) Civilian: Boeing 737-800 Airbus A320ceo Basically, I found that not every scenario needs to be an all out war, and logistic aircraft in the theater that are just flying around and not loaded to the brim with missiles is a key part of any deployment/campaign where it’s not peer vs peer. Please add any other logistic aircraft, civilian aircraft, etc to this postthat you think would be great to have in DCS outside of missile slingers and basic aircraft we have had forever
  17. TLDR: our tomcat doesn’t have the upgraded systems that the real jet had to carry them
  18. And another one on top of that, the Ky-28 encryption functionality with single crew would be awesome to have for multiplayer when you only have jester
  19. As the title sounds, having a Jester menu option to change IFF codes and turn on/off certain mode functions would be great, and here is why: 1. Jester currently has M4 off during normal startup, and keeps it off throughout the sortie, and this results in other aircraft's IFF not getting friendly returns through their datalink 2. My group is considering implementing IFF codes into our deployments, and part of that is using LotATC to automatically recognize specific codes to display mission type, package number, etc. for specific aircraft/flights and part of the discussion inevitably ended up being that Jester crewed tomcats would just read (00)0000 with no indication of what that aircraft is, are they a friendly, what it's mission type is, or what his package he is a part of. 3. Further development of IFF inside of DCS may call for this at some point, and having Jester be able to set it up now for single human crewed tomcats may make life easier for the future. 4. Switches are already working and have values set to each, just an action to change it from the front seat as a "Jester" pilot would be helpful for multiplayer. Implementation A default IFF code can be considered, or remained at (00) 0000 for mode 1 and mode 3. Changing IFF codes could be done through the F-14 kneeboard, similar to how laser codes are changed, or can be done through the Jester menu. Jester default start up turns M4 Preset IFF codes can be done in the mission editor in the "additional options" section.
  20. You don't get fuel flow from afterburner
  21. It initially was worn off, then they added labels back to it, and then now it looks to be reverted
