Engine spool-up time. Canard vortices physical presence.


Recommended Posts

I haven't found anyone bringing this up, so here goes! :)


From what I've gathered on the RM8A, it being an airliner engine, spool-up time was rather slow. The afterburner stages took about a second each to light up. In-game I can go from idle to full burner in two seconds. Crazy fast, it would even put an F404 to shame! :D


One of Viggens magical qualities comes from the canard which at higher AoA produced very powerful vortices. Talking to pilots who flew the Viggen, these vortices clearly made their presence felt when turning hard. It was quite a physical experience. The vortices "drumming" hard on the main wing.


It would be great to have this modelled. More vibrations, and more sound to let us know the canards are doing what they were meant to do! :)

The afterburner lights only indicate throttle position.


If you engage afterburner in flight (especially noticeable in the mid subsonic range) the acceleration takes about 2-3 seconds to really pick up.


So far I think the Viggen has the best afterburner simulation in DCS.


I think audible vortex rumble would be a great addition :D

DCS modules are built up to a spec, not down to a schedule.


In order to utilize a system to your advantage, you must know how it works.
