Looks like I'm back to the skies over N. Korea and the Middle East in the 16 for another week.......

Well, I went ahead and purchased a new PC, I guess I now have to purchase this game, even though I am very poor now:)

You also must have :

- a new HOTAS to fly the plane
- Track IR for immersion
- Tacview software to analyse your performance
- a Creditcard you can max out
- ...

O:-)   ;)

Don't forget the extra wallet draining hardware! 

Can't be flyin' around without HOTAS and TrackIR now, can we?!   :-"

I ain't got no stinking HOTAS - though I will eventually admit that TrackIR does enhance the experience somewhat

I do have HOTAS and TrackIR now but I did start out learning to take off and land with an F-15C using the Xbox controller. I put quite a bit a thought into the configuration of the controller and mode switching to make it all fit.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and Persian Gulf Map for DCS World Update

As we rapidly approach the release of the Hornet and Persian Gulf map this month, we are now pleased to announce the exact release dates. We will first release the Persian Gulf Map for DCS World on 23 May 2018 and then DCS: F/A-18C Hornet on 30 May 2018! We will release both this month as promised.

In order to meet your expectations for the Hornet early access release, we decided to move the Hornet release to shortly after the Persian Gulf Map release. Items we still need to complete are:

    Completed radar-directed AA Gun, AIM-9, and AIM-7 symbology
    AUTO bombing mode
    Radar contacts on the Electronic Warfare (EW) Page
    The Moving Map

We believe these are all vital for a great early access release.


Still not sure if they have AAM capability done. 

Will watch some people flying the Hornet.  Just hope there is some action when it comes out.

Already have that gear, so no need to buy (except for Tacview)   :)

I don't think I'll be able to land on a carrier. :(

You only have to buy Tacview if want the full-featured program. The free version is still pretty useful.
