DCS: F-14 News

Leatherneck Sims developer confirmed F-14 will be released in 2017, "no exceptions". As well confirming the carrier in 2017, although maybe not at the same time.

Take it for what it is worth....I also read/saw that Maverick from 104th had a chance to fly the F-14 pre-alpha. So getting closer.

LN has rapidly taken my favourite 3rd party developer slot for DCS. The Viggen is phenomenal, the mig is phenomenal. I can only imagine the tomcat will be the same if not better

I'm loving the HUD refresh rate, little details that makes this so much excite.

...unrelated but still related; was watching Top Gun last night with the fam. Show of hands, who else was? Anyway - I've seen this film more than a few times, easily in the hundreds by now. And I saw a nice little easter egg I've never ever seen before. Below is the clip - pause at 0:30 after the scene where the Navy guy litters in the ocean. 13 year old me is wholly disappointed.

Wow, how did I miss that! I guess I just accepted that it was normal decor for the time/place in my head.

Good article here about flying and fighting in the F-14. Also leads to other articles from the the pilot about flying as a TG instructor and flying the F-16N.
