I was looking over the download numbers for the F-111's and to my surprise the F-111B abortion of a Vark is the most popular. I am not sure what the appeal of it is but its very popular. I concede to being wrong about whether you all were going to like it. Its a nice surprise actually.

It's pretty rare. I mean, how many times have any of you seen it represented in a sim at all?? I've seen the Pig rep-ed a few times, but never the B.

I think it was the original sucka-hornet! Luckily the F/A-18 E/F performs it's missions much better than the F-111B ever would have.

Slightly OT but I can't understand how any 'download' can have more downloads than views?!

 

Edit: As an example my Hornet F.2 (F/A-18F) has 900 views and 2000 downloads. Something's wrong there I think!

I have to admit, I'm really surprised by that too. I honestly didn't expect that much interest in a 'failed' aircraft.

Maybe it's the "let's see how it would have been" factor, or the "I'm going to give myself a challenge against superior planes" factor.

 

As for the number of DLs, maybe if people go there from the DL section and not the file announcement forum it doesn't count as a "view"?

You are correct, that is how it works.

I don't know about you, sometimes..... Afterall, you were the inspiration behind the MiG-25F/AG "Fruit Bat" mod :haha:

Keep it up, C5, and we'll tell everyone about the pilot textures you made for yourself....you know the one I'm talkin' about...hot-pink flightsuit with a tutu, and a chartreuse helmet with lavender accents.

That is only for flying the Supadupa Honet. I mean, when in Rome...right?

 

I heard you and Rear Admiral Dave had to discharge some seamen that went off half-cocked in Frisco the other night?
