Wheel Chocks and Covers for all Aircraft?

The MiG-21bis has covers and chocks already, and I believe the L-39 has chocks as well. I think it would be a little interesting to have these for all the aircraft.

Whilst I imagine low priority I agree, consistency is always a positive and it gives the aircraft a bit more life.

 

I wish the same for pilot's flashlight, while present on nearly all aircraft there are notable exceptions that I believe should get the flashlight.

Chocks have been wished for many many years but is clearly not on anyone's list. It would be a great addition to ground service but I guess there is quite some work for every airframe to get it implemented. I'm afraid it may also take resources out of other more pressing features to get implemented, like carrier ops. Lets try to ask again after 2.5 is released :thumbup:

Understandable, but when 2.5 comes around, I'll also be coming back around here.

 

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.

I believe that this is one thing DCS is missing in it's quest for being an immersive sim. The environment feels empty. In a perfect virtual world, we'd have all kinds of cool stuff at airbases like ordinance loaders, an animated ground crew complete with a crew chief to blow kisses at, and maybe even some sort of dynamic air traffic system complete with randomized departing and arriving fighters and cargo aircraft. (Yes, I know scripts exist for this, but I still think it'd be neat to see it as a proper feature of the mission editor.) Sadly though, this isn't the case. But hey, a man can dream.

 

Fantastic suggestion, but like ReconXPanzer said, it would be very low on the priority list I imagine.
