Re: Favourite airplane

My favorite airplane is the F-14 Tomcat, particularly those with F-110 engines. I'll not pretend that it was the best of all time, but that doesn't really matter.

Re: Staff Elections: Semester 2, 2018 [MODDING THREAD]

Re: Worst airplane

The Christmas Bullet. I've seen a lot of arguments for worst airplane, but that's one that I've found sufficiently compelling.

Re: Tim Clark wants windowless planes

While passenger comfort issues are significant, I could certainly see the point of removing structural weaknesses from the fuselage. As for the ability to see outside in an emergency, I see no reason why traditional windows couldn't remain in the doors, which are already necessary cuts in the fusela...

Re: Screencaps (Unedited)

Some F-14's out there have the oversweep position mapped to the bomb bay key for parking - this is the Tomcat equivalent to folding wings. This is meant to sweep the wings a little past their full rear sweep angle when on the ground, and is programmed to work on wings that are fully swept (because y...

Re: Screencaps (Unedited)

Got a quick screen of the new F-15J on one of the old WW3 maps. Very impressive, no performance loss (your mileage may vary). Interestingly, it has no HUD or instruments by default - clearly a photo bird.

Keyboard and mouse will give you everything you need and most of what you want for a very reasonable ...
