Yeah, ive got this on preorder. Seems to be taking a perishingly long time coming down the pipe though.

 

 

One of the guys whom has got it on early access claims they have even modeled roll reversal when inverted at high angles of attack. Which basically means any dogfighting has to be coordinated by appropriate rudder inputs. Time to invest in rudder pedals if people dont have them.

Yeah, that's in the video I posted about at 9:00.

I've been waiting for this for a loooong time! I might go ahead and use it as an excuse to invest in oculus rift.

Even at low speeds the F-14 is surprisingly spry for an aircraft that size

The variable sweep wings, big tail surfaces, lots of power and slats help a great deal.

The first version to be released will be the F14B, which is insanely powerful. They are planning on introducing the F14A (including an Iranian version) with all kinds of good stuff like compressor stalls, and an inability to recover from spins. Talk to me Goose!

 

 

Its probably worth downloading the NATOPs F14B manual. Yes, it is that complicated. I actually found the corresponding NATOPs manual reasonably useful for flying the AV8B.

One other thing worth mentioning, If I understand correctly there is bundled with the game some MP3 music you can plan on the in cockpit walkman (which I gather you can do with the Viggen I believe). This is 1980's tribute music by a group called Meteor, and its really actually pretty good. It wouldnt be out of place in any 1980's drama.

I looked them up on Amazon Prime music when the original Heatblur F-14 reveal video came out and to my surprise there are several groups like this.  If you liked Meteor, check out Gunship, FM-84, The Midnight, Timecop1983, Scandroid, Lazerhawk, and Gost. Most have stuff on YouTube if you don't have Amazon Prime. Be warned though; my 80s nostalgia sense may have overridden my taste.  :)

 

Edit: checkout this Gunship video for sure https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv1ZN8c4_Gs. A dogfight between an anime Bf109 and a Spitfire...

Thanks, thats not bad.

 

The video is actually a short animation called 'Paths of Hate', which is a pretty good piece of work. The artist actually had a webpage up showing all the work he did on the 3d modelling, and it actually compared fairly favorably to the DCS Spitfire and 109.

 

 

As for Meteor, Im sure Ill listen to it because I like 80's style music. But im sure ill leaven out the walkman collection with a few Glen Miller hits as well. Thats the only thing I dislike about the spitfire, no bally walkman. :D

This is interesting, a discussion with the devs on the various features of the aircraft, and how they have replicated it.

Thats very good.

 

There was a group that has done criminally little called Nouvelle Phenomene, which also has a distinct 80's vibe. They kind of remind me of a mashup between some OMD (particularly Souvenir) and some of the music in Michael Mann's 'Manhunter'.

 

 

Oh, and they are French and hawt, which is also nice.

Nouvelle Phénomène sings in French, but they are not French. The band's members are from Budapest.

 

Currently, I am learning the AJS-37, the previous plane by the F-14 developer Heatblur. It really surprised me, the avionics are very impressive, considering that the AJ-37 (S denotes the later software upgrade) entered service in 1972 and was developed by tiny Sweden.
