  6. DCS 2.5 Released

    It dosen´t take into account when you bought it. Download 2.5 and if you have 1.5.8 still, the dowload installer will get files needed from that version and some. Once the install is complete you have to install the modules again, the same deal here, the module installer will get the files needed from your 1.5.8 and some till the modules are installed. After that, you can either have two version´s or just 2.5, that´s up to you.

    The problem I see with helos is weapon range. If there´s a long range SA site along your route your in trouble. The thing is to knock out the SA with your SEAD flight first, just as long as you have SEAD in your mission.

    I tried to implement CA in my older VU. I did a training mission which consisted of each side having CA, with a JTAC operator (FO), and a K-50 for support and lasing/JTAC practise. This way we would have air (K-50) and ground (CA) elements in the same mission controlled by players, with no AI what so ever. The point was to get people involved in a multi-task enviroment and be proficient with joint tasking. The problem was that being my older VU mainly a VFS (Virtual Fighting Squadron), with most instructors of each wing having the "top-gun" ego trip sindrome, they didn´t like the Idea of real ground OPFOR messing with there "confort zone". For them it was alot easier to bomb some ground AI, then RTB and call it a day! Virtual pilots will accept getting hit by Air to Air from a real OPFOR, but getting hit by a real OPFOR SAM site hurts there ego real bad! "Hear the guy laughing in the SAM kill video above!" Any how, the difficult part is having some good pilots on your VU in order for all of this to work. CA against CA is cool, but the real deal is when both have air support, that´s were DCS shines.

    I to mainly use DCS for flight simulation and I agree with regards to a rival Steel Beast, although I don´t think that´s the intent on behalf of iether. But there´s a option within DCS World to have a joint multiplayer experience (land/air), so at this point we are missing the full motto "Land/Air/Sea", as there´s no playable ships yet in DCS. Besides that, and without being to picky, CA dose add some flavour and a challange to the Air Forces. The thing is that most DCS pilot wings (SQD) just don´t want to add CA to there plotted missions. Which is something I never understood, because they rather blow up scripted AI armor/SAM then a real life opponent behind CA. Hope this changes in a near future. Airworthy is great in DCS but at times I think the mix of "era" airframes is a bit on the handycap side, but with the upcoming F/A-18, future F-14, and F-4 things will be more even within there eras. Although I have the Dora, for WWII I prefer iL-2, but that dosen´t mean that flying the P-51 and/or Dora/109/Spity are a bitch to fly... well land and take-off´s are a tricky deal --
