  1. I hate to be that guy but technically that's an IAI Nesher aka "Dagger" in Argentine service. It's more similar to the Mirage V than the III model.
  2. Range doesn't matter. I hate how that gets brought up all the time. You can flip that argument so many different ways. Imagine if we lived in alternate reality where the first module released wasn't the Blackshark but people on the forums said, "We don't need helicopters because the Caucasus map is too big compared to the range of most helicopters." While I love the realism of the flight models and systems in DCS and that's why I buy these modules to begin with, if I want to fly a B-52 module to a target 75 miles away or closer from where I took off from that's fine as far as I'm concerned. Most people do not have the time, energy, or interest to do a live action roleplaying 8 hour bombing mission. That doesn't mean we shouldn't have a B-52 or other bomber modules though. It's a sandbox simulation. P.S. - There has been B-52's at Red Flag in the past. What do you think the range and flight time for those B-52 missions was?
  3. The Spitfire MK IX was used by the Soviets...
  4. I don't understand why anyone would say no. I just used it for the first time in another game and the performance improvement is jaw dropping.
  5. I'm all for it, but not as a paid module....
  6. I would definitely buy those. Where did you see those teasers at? I want to check that out.
  7. For some reason I can't select the JF-17 for any other country than Pakistan. Did I miss something? I remember being able to use it as the USA, Russia, China, etc for a long time.
  8. Well I was hoping you would infer it could be a one off example or they just attached it to the pylon as a prop for looks. I mean we are talking about an aircraft in a testing unit. It certainly wouldn't meet Eagle Dynamics threshold for adding things if it is/was a functioning Igla, that's for sure. I certainly don't know, I just did a reverse image search of the picture you posted, went to the Wikipedia page it's from, read what was in the caption, and made my own conclusions.
  9. That picture was taken 21 years ago at NAS Fallon in Nevada. That HIND was from the US Army Test and Evaluation Center and participating in a joint Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) exercise as a simulated hostile threat.
  10. Two things: 1. Hardware controls make a big difference. When I first started using DCS I was using the cheap Logitech 30$ joystick that has been around for ages and helicopters were basically unflyable. Switching to a Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas with rudder pedals helped immensely and I fly them with mostly no issues now. 2. Helicopters are not like airplanes. In real life and in DCS you have to use very gentle inputs on the stick. You do not make large pitch and roll inputs like you would in an airplane.
  11. Figured I'd do some heavy lifting in this thread. I tried to include every country but it's hard to find good pics of the Egyptian birds and it's hard to find a Saudi AH-64 picture where the entire aircraft is visible in one single picture.
  12. I wonder if the B-52G would be a plausible model to make since they were all cut into pieces under the START treaty? Well, all of them except for a couple of museum pieces that is.
