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.
Thanks for that, I could find frustratingly little about them on the internet. They only seem to have had one album out, which is inconceivable to me. They are just too damn good.
Ive not got the Viggen, but Ill probably get it on a sale sometime. Thus far ive got the,
AV8B. Which is possibly the most fun ive had in a sim, completely violating the rules of aerodynamics. Its easy to learn, in fact turning it on is a doddle. Mastering it takes much longer, and im still far from it.
Mig21. Still being developed, still bugged, but still one of the most impressive simulations of an Eastern Bloc fighter aircraft ive seen.
Flaming Cliffs's. But I only fly the Mig29 and the F15 regularly, which imho are the best on the pack. The Mig29 is fun to fly online, but its lack of decent BVR capability is a real downer at times. If you can get wvr, you are going to win most times.
Spitfire. Still the best flight model of a spitfire ive flown
ME109. Still dont think they make the take offs and landings tricky enough, but a hell of a lot of fun.
Mustang. Fun. Dont like it as a much as a spitfire, but its a lot more solid for dive attacks, and the rockets are hilarious.
L29. A useful trainer for getting used to Soviet avionics.
Huey. Because, its a huey. And about the best helicopter sim ive ever flown. Of all the modules, its done the most to make me a better virtual pilot. If you arent any good, you buy the farm every damn time you take off.
Mi8. I like less because it flies like a london bus with a rotorhead on it. OTOH, the amount of weaponry you can hang on it is obscene, and the campaign for it is very interesting indeed (based on the Georgian campaign).
Of all of them, the best for me is the AV8B, with possible the spitfire and Mig21 in level pegging in second place. In fact, if there a single DCS module id encourage everyone to buy, its the AV8B. Its just brilliant in every where, particularly when used in a freeware campaign some guy set in the nellis range.
