Hey guys, the A-4 is officially out!
Just got it!
@SkateZilla plays prominently in thanks and kudos in the videos. Have I been hiding under a rock or has he been holding out on us? The A-4 and A-7 are my favorite machines on the Naval side. Glad to see one, if not both, so respectfully treated by a dedicated group of talented fans. This is a day one non-purchase for me!
Awesome! Kudos to the team, this was clearly a massive undertaking!
Oh boy, I just took her for a test and I love it.
I can’t tell how realistic it is but it feels just right.
Light, nimble and FUN!
I highly encourage everyone to give this mod a try. It requires nothing special, no paid aircraft or anything – it’s a great way to get fence sitters into DCS! Easily fills the niche for a carrier trainer aircraft, easy to handle, very forgiving.
So the opfor aircraft from Top Gun are complete. Now we are just waiting on the movie star.
Speaking of which…how long after the Tomcat is released before someone recreates the movie in DCS?
That’s not possible. The throttle moves into the wrong direction.
Resisting temptation to ditch work… just
Someone write a review as if it were payware…
Hey Skate. I hope I didn’t slight you in some way. It was meant as a compliment. You obviously were important to the project. I wasn’t aware. Or…there’s another Skatezilla out there. Or…I heard it wrong. Anywho, moving on…
I’m really impressed with the pit in VR. Really cozy in there. I’ve yet to tinker with my Warthog curves, but that roll rate sure is snappy!
There was a link in the ED thread to a copied NATOPS manual. Just click the download button when you land there.
I’m sat at work ITCHING to get home and Download this immediately. This could be the one… I’m very very much excited to try to destroy it on a carrier deck…
I’m super impressed. I got pay modules that are nowhere near this good. Had a good little play and just owned the 21Bis in this. Missiles are tough to hit and guns need to be close for a kill. It is real nice inside and out. Love It!!! I would pay 40 usd for it.
you’re fine, was just wondering at first what you meant by holding out,
I am involved with many aspects in DCS, I just dont disclose them all. My Tag will be popping up a lot over the next year.
See the ‘non-functioning systems’ header in the release post:
I found it! It was in the September 2018 dev update.
Click the link at the bottom of this post and you will find it!
EDIT: S*** it looks like the link to the NATOPS that they posted is broken. Anybody around who is good at finding NATOPS documents? @near_blind ?
I REALLY need to slow down and read things better when I’m excited… My bad
If there’s no “how-to” guide yet, I’ll throw something together real quick. There’s really not a lot of complicated stuff for the A-4E, especially in comparison to others like the MiG-21 and F-5.
Done. My bad, in that I missed that existing one and probably just should have moved @Navynuke99’s into it and renamed. Oops.
