  1. Welcome! I would suggest you get SF2 Complete if you haven't bought any yet, you will end up wanting to buy all games, expansions and DLCs however obscure they might be. The game itself doesn't need much in the way of hardware, other than it seems not to like Nvidia for some reason, IIRC. Better ask someone more knowledgeable on that topic. If I were you I would start playing mostly stock, learn a bit about how mods work and then get them bit by bit depending on what you find most interesting.
  2. For that specific timeframe, it might be interesting to see the F-104s or the F-5s, you would think the US never used these in combat.
  3. Mirage Factory F-5E for SF2

    All I did was updating some minor stuff to SF2 standards, but the team that made it originally went through lots of changes, including the death of the founde Bpao. There are newer mods about the F-5E, and the current standard in that regard seems to be this one: https://combatace.com/files/file/15116-f-5e-early-versions-pack/
  4. Mirage Factory F-5E for SF2

    Version 1.1


    Adaptation of the original Add-on to work on SF2, Thirdwire second generation. Includes all the original files by Mirage Factory, adapted weapons, and skins, along with several aggresor skins by wpnssgt Readme included
  5. My issues are not so drastic, but despite a fairly decent SSD laptop I do feel a noticeable improvement in performance with the fewest aircraft mods possible, but it does play great with maps like Green Hell and tons of (mostly stock) aircraft in the air. Seems like much of the issue, for me at least is reading different aircraft skin BMPs. That being said, I've got to appreciate a lot of the stock aircraft. The only modded one I have is my Frankensabre with two generic skins. Edit: Well, I just saw the F-86H, I guess that makes two aircraft mods.
  6. MQ-9 Reaper shot down by Russia’s Wagner PMC

    Wagner guys sure have reasons to be concerned about the USAF. Imagine Milley and Austin feel like pulling a Mattis at some point.
  7. Something I've seen people in DCS do a lot, in my opinion, and it has become more apparent with the Mirage F1, is pulling too much AoA / too many Gs, almost stalling their aircraft. Many of the aircraft they have had could tolerate that, but if they lean towards the mid Cold War era, like in our SF2 niche years, they'll end up changing the meta and manage their energy much more carefully. Specially with the Hun, chances are it will become Farmer fodder. I hope the Phantom, being as iconic, brings more attention to the way they had to fly them in Vietnam for example. I hope to get into DCS in a couple of months though, and be gangbanged by these people. The effort and passion that community seems to put into the hobby is beyond my comprehension. They don't count the rivets, they check if they have the right twist and gauge.
  8. Pretty much the point. I never complained about SF2 being abandoned if it wasn't profitable to develop any further, but if you are going to keep it on sale, at least make sure you are not selling it faulty or, in this case, not delivering it.
  9. Ouch, that's bad. I found it worthy even if only to have it all in one place, but that hurts
  10. Germanys answer to the T-14 Armata

    I'm almost eager that Germany has to bail us out of the next crisis and part of the deal is buying these to replace our Leos.
  11. Shame, I was convinced, after 9 years, we were close to Exp3, SF2 Korea, plus the Indo-Pak and Iran-Iraq games.
  12. Could you give any more info? What aircraft are you using, the model of R-27, if it happens with other missiles, and so on.
  13. I've often wondered the same, beside issues like short range and, well, engines catching fire, it would seem like if the real Farmer was as good as it is in game it would have been much more ubiquitous and popular, not that it wasn't in real life but not as much as MiG-17s and 21s. I guess it might have had, as both the 17 and 21, some issues with the control surfaces at higher speeds but I've never heard any of that
  14. Top Gun 2022

    I always felt she was meant to be
  15. Top Gun 2022

    It was awesome. Agree that it felt better than the first one, as blasphemous as it might sound. Bonus points for Maverick's jacket: In the trailers they had apparently replaced RoC and Japan flags for PRC points, they used the right ones in the film. Here's hoping they slipped it through and Tom Cruise burned some social credit score
  16. Another Russian ship....

    It would be great but I'm somewhat holding out from taking it as granted. There seems to be something going on but it's been too long with no definitive confirmation.
  17. I've had issues taking off with Tomcats from ground bases in mostly vanilla installs, going full flaps down and pitching up early seems the way to go, the aircraft seemed heavy on the runway, as if the landing gear was collapsing with that much weight above certain speed.
  18. Ukraine Helicopters Attack Russian Oil Depot !

    It is only the fact that the Ukranians haven't acknowledged it that could spell any doubt in my opinion. It does seem too surgical to be a false flag, hitting an actually relevant target without, reportedly, killing anybody, as compared to, say, a ballistic missile hitting a population center. I have the feeling those might have even been Russian Hinds going rogue, either on their own accord or some pretty ballsy commander trying to hinder their own advance to avoid or delay further carnage for some reason. It wouldn't be the first reported case of Russians sabotaging themselves or going red on red to avoid combat. Still, pretty weird, it would be awesome if the Ukranians had turned the tables that much, but if it is the own Russian military turning around, that would be even better.
  19. I hope we might eventually follow suit. Having to replace the Hornet as well, it might be interesting to look at some made with the same refuelling system, although I reckon there would be more peculiar features for Canada that might not be as needed in Spain.
  20. Is it odd that I'm more hyped about Typhoons now than I was when they started entering service?
  21. USAF F-22 landing mishap

    The B-2 they rebuilt seemed beyond salvaging after all. Not sure it is the same
  22. Russian T-72B3 and T-80BVMs side armour ERA

    I do believe you man. I've been frustrated and pissed off at the whole thing since the invasion started. Just like with the Syrian Civil War or when Daesh steamrolled Iraq, or Libya when they started the air strikes on cities.
  23. Russian T-72B3 and T-80BVMs side armour ERA

    I reckon you guys have a thing or two to say about invasions by dictators getting too full of themselves
  24. The main issue I have when flying Red Air is Sparrows kicking me in the face once Phantoms become more common, when in reality most of those shots wouldn't have been taken without ID being possible, you could reduce Sparrow's theorical rmax range to represent that. Other than that, early on, I would take a MiG-17 or a MiG-19 (stock) against pretty much everything in a dogfight. If you mean with mods, it is pretty much how they are set up. Not that it is completely unrealistic though.
