  1. "The Heatblur Simulations F-4E Phantom II is the culmination of over 2 years of intense development, preceded by countless hours of research and built with our next-gen technology that brings many new features, leaning on all the know-how gained from our previous modules. DCS: F-4 represents some of the most immersive cold war fighter jet simulation available. Climb into the cockpit of this beast and announce yourself with thunder, as you experience the thrill of riding a primeval spirit. DCS: F-4 includes, and models, both the DMAS and non-DMAS equipped F-4E Phantom II variants using the powerful J-79 engines. It utilizes our next-gen components based simulation framework - the aircraft is simulated as a connection of thousands of individual components. From an instrument needle to control surfaces, each component influences the state of the aircraft and even comes with its own wear and tear. Enjoy in depth fluids and electric simulations, a dynamic flight model and many new “firsts” in DCS, when flying and fighting in the F-4! With the DCS F-4 we are introducing JESTER 2.0 - a completely rebuilt and redesigned JESTER AI to help you as your WSO, with improved and updated intelligence, a new interface and new immersive features, like pro-actively asking you questions depending on the situation - changing his behavior based on your answers. Teamwork is key in the Phantom. With JESTER 2.0 you will be able to not only enjoy this multiseat fighter in multiplayer with a friend, but also in singleplayer on your own. " There are 4 options to choose from on the Heatblur store only for now - Order at your own risk. https://store.heatblur.com/products/dcs-f-4-phantom
  2. The latest iteration of the Tommo Inc Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.37 U3 - is available for you to enjoy RIGHT NOW with some major changes ( See change log below) BMS 4.37 U3 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message. For those of you who are new to Falcon and still need a legacy Falcon 4.0 license, you’re lucky, as there are various season sales going on. Retroism GOG If you have already installed BMS 4.37 Full Installer you will need to launch the “updater.exe” in Falcon BMS root folder (or from the new launcher). Alternatively, you can use the offline incremental installer available on the Falcon BMS Download page. This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Tommo Inc and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you. After the update, when starting BMS, the version string in the BMS UI will now read: FALCON BMS 4.37.3 (X64) BUILD 1329 CHANGELOG https://www.falcon-bms.com/changelogs/falcon-bms-4-37-3/ A big THANK YOU to everyone in the BMS development team and to the gents from TOMMO INC who made this release possible!

  3. Interesting read if you get the time with WIP shots: https://pocketmags.com/pc-pilot-magazine#
  4. Glad to see somebody is still manning TW.
  5. 1 Yes 2. You only purchase the modules you want to fly. All the ED AI planes are included I think. Example I never bought the FW-190D but can put it in missions and campaigns for AI use. 3. Further purchases of single player campaigns, Maps (e.g. Normandy), and probably the WWII asset pack will be needed. There is no historical accuracy in the base game especially with WWII it is mostly a sandbox. WWII is very minor in DCS but there is one good multiplayer (4YA) server at least that do that if you like that sort of thing. There are some good single player campaigns for specific aircraft you can buy. It will be limited to the available maps and very small planeset.
  6. F-4E dash 1 from 1979 has both the GBU-9/B (M118 EO) and GBU-11/B (M118 Paveway 1 kit) in the loadout. Don't have anything on the F-104 and M118.
  7. The F-15E, developed in the mid 1980's, is a dual-role fighter designed to perform air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. An array of avionics and electronics systems give the F-15E the capability to fight at low or high altitude, day or night, and in all weather. The F-15E is the USAF's premier strike fighter still in use today. The F-15E delivered fighter aircrew several first-time capabilities. Its APG-70 radar, based on the very capable APG-63 from the F-15A-D, boasted a synthetic mapping capability that literally created pictures of the target based solely on radar imaging. A self-contained, networked electronic warfare suite gave the aircraft self-protection capabilities. Bringing this all together and placing battlespace information at the hands of the crew, a sophisticated, air-to-ground with an ergonomic cockpit layout that was developed to take full advantage of the latest technology and advances in such areas with Multi-Purpose Displays. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/modules/f-15e/
  8. Real life problem

    Very sorry to hear that GKABS.
  9. Track While Scam

    And yet people still get taken in by them - so it is always good to highlight these when possible.
  10. Track While Scam

    A video on a Mil sim scam that you may have seen last year originally called Track While Scan (TWS)............and is now called Training and Warfare Simulator (TWS)
  11. 98% no F-16s had the capability to carry AIM-7 operationally until 1989 despite several sources saying otherwise (looking at you Egyptian F-16Cs) . Those EPAF countries (Belgium etc) would have had to flight test, and pay for the capability and develop new pylons and the radar dev.........either to GD / Westinghouse or some other contractor. They would have been seen carrying AIM-7 and being a non classified thing many pilots and engineers would have stated as such by now. (No evidence of such a thing) No idea if it was even an option for them............but they did have some differences like Penguin (Norway). Would probably need someone that dealt with the negotiations back in the 70s to know. Basically if you look back back to the 1970s/80s they were really holding out for AMRAAM which was started around 1976 and expected in 1985/6 but was delayed with the first LRIP AMRAAMs delivered in 1987. (first separation AMRAAM launch from F-16 was about 1981)
  12. In reality there is a lot of confusion but will try to clear it up. F-16A Block 1 was built from the start to carry Sparrow and had the cooling, space, power and provisions....however due to politics USAF decided not to put it on and dropped it in 1975. So the APG-66(V) did not have the bits to support AIM-7 like the CW module because they were intentionally left off. Long story short AIM-7 was not properly certified on F-16A until 1989 (F-16ADF) that used the APG-66(V)1 (according to Lockheed Martin/GD) It was not certified on F-16C until 1989 either and not ready until 1992. (according to Lockheed Martin/GD) After 1992 Lockheed advertised it as an option on any F-16A or F-16C regardless of the Radar if you wanted it but very few users ever had it. For example the EPAF MLU F-16s with APG-66(V2) probably didn't have the capability to fire AIM-7 they just went with AMRAAM instead. However the Taiwan Block 20s with APG-66(V)3 could fire AIM-7s (they were not allowed AMRAAM at first) Basically the USAF were given costs and a 3 year lead time in 1976 to put Sparrow on the F-16A so it was viable......................so for fantasy world you can just stick it on.
  13. Hi, need help with FalconBms

    Shift and Num Pad arrow keys (1 to 9) was default. See "BMS Keyboard Layout (US Int).pdf" in your install ....\BMS_437\Docs\01 Input Devices\01 Keyboard Layouts\Basic Also "BMS-User-Manual.pdf" in your install for key mapping using the launcher ........\BMS_437\Docs\00 BMS Manuals
