DCS: Syria

As someone with no civilian FS installed at all, doesn’t help me! :slight_smile:
I do have CloD, BoX, EECH, RoF, Strike Fighters 2 (multiple modded installs) and over a dozen other games, though.

And I was questioning the guy who was building my new PC about his strong recommendation to put there 32GB RAM :thinking: Now I am happy about it :+1: (jumped on DCS only recently)

Really depends on the mission. I’ve done a short Ka-50 hop in the Black Sea with limited ops outside my flight and I don’t breach 40%. Then I do a mission on PG with multiple flights and ships and ground targets and it’s 75%.

DCS really cares about how complex a mission is as far as RAM footprint.

It seems the map is getting embiggenizered before it’s even in our grubby hands. RAF Akrotiri is happening baby!




The water expansion covers a chunk of where Cyprus will be, so in terms of map area - it’s not much more to add above the water expansion for all of Cyprus. Just alot of work!

Edit: Look at Wags’ map view and trace the Northern coast on this map highlighting Cyprus (from Wikipedia):


As long as it covers “34/34” (34º00’00"N / 034º00’00"E) - and it apparently does - we are good to go.

Back in the day (1986-87) that was the position of what we unofficially referred to as “Bagel Station”. The carrier would “MODLOC” around that point while we flew missions off Lebanon. Far enough away to keep out of or intercept any threats; close enough in to fly without too much tanking. My carrier never saw any real action…intercepted a CBS-chartered Kingair once…that was about it.

(No, we didn’t shoot it down. Just waved it off.)


Wags’ cursor sits at

Which is just off shore of Beirut. Bagel station appears to be North East of where a line South from Larnaca, Cyprus and West from Beirut would intercept over water. So getting all of Cyprus puts that definitely on the map!

My sister was on her first tour with UNIFIL, back then.

Yikes…it was much safer out on the water. Thank her for her service.

This is my first proper look at the map. How far down does it go? MAN! I cant wait. MiG-17 Confirmed! :wink:

Where did you get that? Did I miss something?

My Immagination. Its a JOKE. My insinuation being is What is this map without the Fresco?
And still I go to bed at night hoping one day Bellsimtek will say “We decided to do the MiG-17F”

Fencer! Fencer! Fencer!

C’mon!! Believe!!

Fitters and Floggers and Flagons, oh my!
