  1. I would love to join Your team (DCS)… But You need to precise where are from You from guys (servers/pings! 🙁 ) great website +everything else!

  2. Hi lads,
    I know this is a strange place to post this, but don’t want to post it in a random video and don’t do Facebook and blah blah blah.
    Do you think there is any way you could attempt to recreate the F/A-18 tic-tac interactions in DCS or some other simulator?

    This might assist people when they try to visualise the incredible interactions these pilots had.

    Maybe it will assist in an explanation for this phenomenon?

    I’m sure there is an explanation that isn’t “aliens”.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    • Copy, we have actually already done this but due to how DCS works, it can’t be re-enacted. In a few weeks Cap will put a vid out about this.

  3. Is it even remotely possible to do dogfights at night with some of the more modern planes with NVG or some of the advanced Helmet mounted display systems. If not would you be able to recreate the difficulty associated with such a preposition?

  4. Hi Cap.
    You can’t fly to Japan, but have you done a reenactment of Mig Pilot (The final escape of Lt. Belenko)? I didn’t see one on the channel.

  5. Just a thought for a video, is AI WWII AA as accurate at night as during the day?
    Maybe fly some bombers over AA in day and night conditions (with and without search lights) and see if the numbers shot down are similar or different.

    • hi Cannon. Optically guided AA in doesn’t fire at all when dark. So annoying. Would love to see tracers. Will try with search leights for accuracy. cap

  6. Why don’t jet planes need windshield wipers? It seems like a few well-placed locust splats would inhibit the pilot’s vision.

    • Cap says “great question! I will go ask a real Harrier pilot and see what he says.”

      • Ha ha. Sounds great. I’ll have to check one of the upcoming Q&A episodes to see if you got an answer on that one!

  7. I know you have a long list of requests, I recently saw one of your death valley run vids where you try to get past AA defences. The slow WWII aircraft don’t do well overall but I had an odd thought.
    A DH2 aka DeHavilland Beaver bush plane. for such a run. ( if it’s available ) They served in several air forces as reconnaissance aircraft as well as cargo. ( 1 ton cargo capacity with a 900 mile range STOL and rough field capable, or fitted with pontoons or skis snow ice and water capable )
    Not fast, not supremely agile, but sturdy, and can fly low so beneath radars.

    It would be interesting to see how far this iconic bush plane could make it in the run.

      • About the same speed, but no idea if it handles the same way. The beaver’s overhead wings give great visibility below and it can easily fly at 1 foot above grass or river.

        IRL, there are hundreds of beavers still actively working as well as those being used as private aircraft. over 16,000 of them built and over half still flying. None built after about 1953. ( people are still on Viking Air’s case to open production since they bought out all the DeHavilland aircraft types and can legally build them all. They do have current production on the Beavers big brother the twin Otter. )

  8. great people here at GR, lots of help to make DCS more enjoyable, glad to be a supporter, and recommend to anyone.

  9. Hi, Diskobolos from Czech Republic. I have found an archive of cold war era czech documents which you might find interesting.
    In one of these in particular there is mass military drill from 1984 and one of the events is a practice of mass takeoff – including both directions on the main runway and taxiways. You can see it here:
    https://youtu.be/LrBiNjDFX0k?t=6367
    I think you are already doing this in your videos – question is if you practiced this as a drill to takeoff in the shortest amount of time (organized in flights). I can give you some translations if needed.

    There two more documents that you might find really interesting:
    Documentary about L-39 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAo2MKHHyoI&t=2s
    Startup procedure of Mi-24D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DH_FNrZXgms&list=PLm3uRMXb5akIuYYktlqxi82lPTRM-VHEo&index=17

  10. Hi, Ward Carroll recently posted BVR engagement actions in the F-14 including RIO responsibilities. I was wandering if you could recreate this engagement so that we have visuals of the engagement as described by an F-14 RIO veteran? Video titled ‘How to kill bandits before the merge’ Thx
