Some excellent information in this thread.
I too contemplated posting this in the forums this morning, but then I realized the folly of my ways and came to know @near_blind as a weirdly obsessed guy when it comes to LNS.
We should consider keeping him at leash distance once you guys interview Cobra
Read through that thread the other day. Certainly looks like a lot of detail going into this. Looks like the making of a great module addition to DCS. I thought I had read way back that they (Leatherneck) were also working on a map for this aircraft to operate in. Does anyone know?
They are, it’s not ready, I wouldn’t expect any sort of news until 2.5 at the earliest
I thought so, good to know. I wonder if that means by 2.5 ship models and AI may have been tweaked worked on as well since this aircraft seems to be a dedicated anti-ship aircraft.
I wouldn’t say it’s a dedicated anti-ship aircraft, although that is a big part of its repertoire due to the perceived threat to the Swedish eastern coastline.
It’s definately a strike aircraft. Being able to deliver rockets, bombs, TV guided and optically guided munitions onto any land or sea based target. Not to mention it’s 6 Sidewinder capacity, which will make for some interesting dogfights, even if not in strict accordance with real life strategy doctrine
