Jet/fighter thread. Let's talk about fighters and related games and anime. YF-23 is best bird. Fight me.
Any combat aircraft would become a hangar queen after a long period without significant refit or rebuild. Even more so for a carrier plane.
Of course maintenance would get harder after more than 20 years of carrier ops.
Any War Thunder players here?
Any Vector Thrust players here?
I play it sometimes. Still waiting for cockpit models.
Those are fictional versions with canards.
Extremely stupid and pointless canards, to go with the equally pointless and stupid LERXes on the vertical tails. My question was intended more along the lines of "who thought that was a good idea?"
Gripen is nice, but Draken is best Swede.
There's nothing wrong with adding fictional or conceptual aircraft to a game, but at least make them somewhat believable. And there are plenty of actual concepts they could've used instead, like FB-22 or NATF.
Shit. As most non-cobra american planes.
Stick to your shitty arcade game where planes are balanced via "secret russian dokuments ))))) found in long-lost Soviet bunkers )))))))", I'll stick with DCS and IL-2.
Holy shit, I mean seriously, I can't believe you're trying to prove how elite you are by comparing two arcade games. Blazing Angels was mediocre, but at least it never pretended to be a "sim" with any historical credibility.
>game where planes are balanced via
Also, the Battle Rating system.
>Changing the BR, which affects the matchmaking of the plane, based on how well the players are doing on that particular plane
>secret russian documents
>implying that only soviets are OP
I'm not trying to prove that I'm somehow elite. I want to say that WT is fun to play. Not in arcade mod, it's boring for me.
And about "secret documents" - personally I think that soviets are ok. Unlike brits and (maybe) americans. Germans are overtierd.
I don't think you understand. On more than one occasion, Gaijin's rationale for certain balancing changes is literally "secret documents" that they are totally legitimately not allowed to share with the public because they're classified, not because they're full of shit.
this is list of F-22 family aircrafts in game:
--- F-22 Family
So why couldn't have one of these canards? Because you don't like them? Stay mad
Faggots, do you even death by a thousand cuts?
>Mk IIB has 12 machine guns
Because all those canards are doing is adding drag and increasing RCS.
Canards are fine if they're part of the aircraft's original design, but bolting a pair onto an existing aircraft is seldom the best solution. Even the Russians realized this with their newer Flanker models.
Why do people laugh at the Falcon being my planefu? She does her best at everything
6 is alright and fun but you need to get a PS2 and play the Holy Trinity if you want to get into Ace Combat proper.
Alright then just play whatever.
Air Combat and AC2 are easy enough to get because they're PSX, great games. X and X2 are ok but PSP. 3 is japan only at this point (unless you want the gimped version). The AC2 remake on the 3ds is also good I heard.
Don't touch Assault Horizon.
That covers most of them.
>Delta wing Falcon
Disgusting, I only want to see delta wings on my other favorite plane the Tornado.
>swing wing delta
So, we're back to Tomcats?
Unless you want to go by timelines in game this makes no sense as the only two games related to eachother in the series are 5 and Zero.
>AH better than 6
>AH has an instant win button
>it basically plays itself
>no air fleet
>bugged boss fights
>main character with a face
>boring and bland story
Yeah right. At least 6 feels and plays like AC despite the annoying girl and the lack of aircraft.
Damn I can't even type right anymore.
Ok then tell me why is AH better than 6?
Or are you just rusing?
Official thread song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gRv_urHtKI
Wrong. This is a dogfight thread so we have an appropriate song.
That song is bad and you should feel bad.
Now here's some real dogfighting music.
I always loved the Delphinus, Orcinus and Sepia from AC3. Smooth lines all the way. baby.
>3 is japan only at this point (unless you want the gimped version)
I was seriously hoping the AC2 remake was an indicator AC3 might also get a remake and we'd finally get a good version of it.
But I guess they're dumping everything into the F2P game now.
