There really isn't much to say about this. I'll take Wags at his word since everything ED has done in the past has always been above board. I don't see any reason for them to risk their entire business and possible future licensing deals over something like this. Just seems like a foolish employee who perhaps tried to use his position to make some money for personal gain.

Its important to note that he isn't being charged with espionage or theft of classified information, etc. Its just a violation of ITAR from removing the manuals which contained ITAR restricted information.

I do not think this is going to impact progress of the module, which is really the only thing I would care about.

Imagine if he purchased the manual while on a holiday in the states. Then went home without ever knowing it was restricted from export. I actually wonder whether the manuals are available as pdf on the web anyways? I am just trying to illustrate that in a global community. This strikes me as a strange thing to limit when the horse has already bolted I would venture to assume.

I presume these manuals are something more than pdf files publicly available on the internet, such as the NATOPS manuals, etc. I also doubt that it was completely innocent since ED and itís emoloyees deal with ITAR regularly and are therefore most likely  very familiar with its requirements.

F-16C pre-orders open on 5/22 for expected early access release in autumn of 2019! Man, they really don't want people thinking the legal issue with Oleg will delay the project. lol

I'm inclined to go with JH on this one.  Flight simmers tend to be a very anal crowd.  If data was exhibited in a DCS module that wasn't publicly available, no doubt some douche would point it out, even though he was slitting his own flight simming throat.  For whatever reason, that's  how flight simmers roll.

Yes you are most ďlikelyĒ right. He probabaly would have known even if he prichased at the local level. The seller obviously knew as well. But I still think that if thry do not want this sort of thing goong over seas it should be classified and not released in america either. Because its a given this stuff is out there as soon as it hits the piblic spaces in america.There are just too many eyes from other countries going back and forth or simply loving in america. The countries that really wabt these manuals have already got them I would say. Simply by virtue of the fact they are pulbic in thr united states.

As for the F16. I wonder what effect this eill have now the spotlight is on ED. But then its gotta be just as good as the falcon 4 modelling.

Iím going to wait a few months on this one and see how it develops. A lot of the features that are planned seem to be fluctuating right now. Iím also concerned that they wonít meet the early autumn EA release. Fingers crossed though.

The F-16 is for pilots that couldn't qual on the carrier.

F-14 > F-18 >>> F-16

The Fighter Pilot Podcast show about the Tomcat had an apt remark about the Viper; its the Tomcat in halves in just about everything: half the crew, half the engines, half the tails, half the size.
But its just as quick and nimble. :)
