DCS F-14 Tomcat Launch Impressions MEGATHREAD


I got take off and landing OK. For carrier ops you have to set a key for catapult release. So quick to 33000 AGL and doesn’t need much trim once level. Could not release my stores so I need to RTFM
Off for pizza with friends soon so have to fly later have a ball guys :sunglasses:


Air refueling is fun. There’s a decent amount of buffeting off the wing tip of the KC-135. Going to take a while to get this down, especially with the Jester commentary (‘Let’s try that again…’). I got on the basket but really need to tune my axis up from defaults. The throttle seems really responsive, and the spool speed great.

Enormous fun.

Haven’t tried it yet, but I read there’s a walkman in the Tomcat, left-shift + M.


I thought that would be for the Iron Eagle Block 50 we’re getting later.


Great idea!


I think that’s the song you play after your first landing…


Anyone have a Bill Murray crew chief mod?


Quick stupid question. Is the 14 only available in DCS world open beta?




Son of a tomcat…guess I need to download the open beta. Damn. Anyway to go from normal to beta with out a huge redownload?


I recommend @SkateZilla’s tool, but there is also a command line way to do it.
…we have it here… somewhere…



I saw the keybindings for it. You can fast forward and rewind :+1:


Excellent news gentlemen. I have seen the thread about his updater I’ll give it a go when I get home.

Thank you!



Anyone will be up and flying in the next few hours?


I will be in the next 2hrs. For the next ten hours or so.


Home in two hours. Flying in… maybe four if I behave myself?
