Because you just can't not skin DCS.  Needless to say it's the A Hog (crawl then walk...) and given that it's "simple" I decided to get back into the flow, slowly into skinning again.

Very nice - although prepare for added Bullet holes and black charring on a mission in the A.

 

Life's a breeze in the C on the other hand - far more civilised - can have a nice cup of tea.

Real men fly the A-10A :)

Tape a map to your knee, stay below a hard deck of 500 feet on the way to the target, and arm the gun!

Lol on both... when I finally got A-10C I watched the tutorial and well... let's say I can cold start a Super Hornet better than that beast.... but again crawl-walk... then run :smile:

 

More touchups though I need to find a better mouth to slap on the nose...

I used to cold start the A-10C, but I haven't flown it in so long for a few reasons:

1) I have to change my stick setup to fly it since I don't normally use the Warthog stick, only the throttle. Using the Warthog stick is an absolute must to have all the functions of the real A-10C at your fingertips. My F-4 Phantom B-8 stick doesn't have nearly enough buttons or thumb hats.

2) There are a lot more aircraft available now that I would much rather fly and fight. From the arrival of the UH-1 and F-15C flight model, my flight time in the A-10C fell to zero. Add the Mi-8, Fw190, F-86, and MiG-21... never have to fly a modern plane again and won't get bored.

I can cold start the A-10C from memory no problem. But now I just want to fly.

Yeah I give props to those who take the time, but sometimes you just want to hop in the cockpit and go fly.  Which brings me to the A model, which isn't a good mountain climber.  I'm sure the C has more push but I've already smacked into the sides of some mountains so yeah... have to do a better approach...

No, the C is the same. Just carries different stuff with a different cockpit. That said, I get frustrated with everything in the C revolving around the TGP flying around at 10k+ ft. Sometimes I just want to drop iron with CCIP, shoot guns and rockets, and fire Mavs using their built-in camera from 200 ft!

Lol I feel you... but yeah I'm getting the hang of the A model (200ft is pretty damn low... for TGP or even the basic "camera' with the Maverick head) but yeah I like the simplicity of the A when I'm getting my feet wet with the sim.  Still I'll probably eventually (maybe) graduate to the C but for now just keeping it simple is good for me.

Thanks!  It took some fixing from an Arma 3 version (now that I got my head fixed on that issue...) but it's getting there... slowly :smile:
