Damn, this is just such amazing work as always.  Sophocles, your F-5A here is going to set the bar for superior quality and details - thank you for continuing to bring this into reality...  :bowdown2:

The inclusion of a paint kit is great! Also, I'm aware of the F-5's limitations in armament, but a lot of other fighters also carry only a few sidewinders - the Sabre and Mirage III come to mind immediately for me. I'd just like to fly some air-to-air missions as well as air-to-ground in campaigns, since I plan to use this bad boy in a few of them.

As an aside, how many sidewinders can the F-5A carry? I've seen both 2 and 4 listed as the max.

The F-5a can only carry 2 sidewinders on its wingtip rails; unlike the F-5E which I've noticed some countries have updated to carry four (Brazil and others..)

Would look so pretty in DCS.. :-p

That was a joke, for the most part.

I still havent gotten my SF2 to work on my new machine (windows 10, ryzen, 32gb ram, etc etc).

But since SF2 doesnt support VR, I havent really dug into the issue.

Speak for yourself Starfighter2!  It's still 30 degrees and sunny as heck here on Crete, LOL!!

There's still some details to iron out, and Baffmeister is working hard custom building and tuning the flight model.. so a couple more weeks:ok:
