As we prepare for the release of DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer by the end of this month, we are carefully checking the Flight Model’s buffet and stall implementation, instantaneous turn rate, sustained turn rate, and maximum speed at different altitudes. These checks enable measured parameters to match the flight manual charts with a precision to within 3%.
We found that buffeting affects the airframe at a lower AoA than is stated in the manual, this affected aircraft handling during deliberate stalling. We are working on this issue, which will result in a significant improvement to overall aircraft behavior in this phase of flight.
In parallel, many of the new systems are now functional including laser-Maverick, APKWS, and the GBU-54 LJDAM. Work continues on the Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS) and associated HOTAS commands and updating the cockpit and external art.
