Development F-5E Tiger II
Continuing working on the “famous” fighters’ line, we are especially concerned about game balance in DCS World. The best rival for the beloved by users MiG-21bis is an American fighter F-5E Tiger II, developed by the Northrop in the second half of the last century.
 
Consistently caring about the quality of the released product, which is reflected in the “similarity” between the developed module and the real airplane, our specialists, in their work, are trying to only use available documentary data of the original airplane.
 
Undoubtedly, a wide range of weapons from guided air-to-air missiles to various air-to-ground armament (unguided rockets, various bombs and cluster munitions) and two built-in 30-mm cannons will impress any fan of aviation battles. Professional flight model, implemented as close as possible to the real airplane in DCS World will allow aviation fans to enjoy flying the aircraft.
 
In the following updates, we are planning to inform our virtual pilots about development progress of this fighter for DCS World.

Planned Munitions.........

 

The light tactical fighter F-5E Tiger II is developed primarily for air combat with enemy fighters, bombers, reconnaissance planes, and helicopters. Two 20-mm caliber cannons with 280 rounds per barrel and two air-to-air heat-seeking missiles AIM-9 can be used for this task.

At the same time, capabilities of onboard weapon systems and the presence of five hardpoints, allow employment of unguided and guided (external laser source) bombs, cluster bombs and unguided rockets in airstrike missions.

The following armament is planned to be available for the player:

1. Two 20-mm caliber M-39A3 cannons with rate of fire of 1500-1700 rounds per minute and ammunition of 280 rounds per gun;

2. Two heat-seeking missiles (AIM-9B or AIM-9P) (currently we are considering these versions);

3. Unguided bombs:

·         5x Mk-82

·         3x Mk-83

·         1x Mk-84

·         5x Mk-82 Snakeye

·         5x M-117

·         MER-5 5x Mk-82

·         MER-5 5x Mk-82 Snakeye;

4. Cluster bombs:

·         5хCBU-52B;

5. Guided bombs:

·         4x GBU-12 (buddy lasing  or ground laser designator);

6. Unguided rockets:

·         4x LAU-61 (x19) (LAU-3 or LAU-60 could be added later)

·         4x LAU-68 (x7);

7. Flare dispenser:

·         SUU-25C.

All the items, mentioned above, at this moment, have different status of readiness, but we are already sure that it will be a very interesting and playable module!

All the aircraft systems are accurately simulated in high detail;
-The new engine compressor model is implemented based on accurate blade loads calculation. 
-The new model provides simulation of the compressor guiding unit functioning and the expanded range of engine operation modes (high and low compressor stalls, compressor operating in windmill mode);
-The radar, optical sight, jettison system, possibility of gun firing, launching of air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground rocket firing, flare and chaff ejection are implemented into the model of the aircraft’s weapon system. All the above-mentioned items are now operating properly;

The flight model:
-operational range of altitude and speed, acceleration with various payloads and G loads (in sustained turns and at maximum angles-of-attack) are tuned basing on available information on the flight dynamics of the real aircraft; the model behavior at critical angles-of-attack (stalling) and post-stall behaviour (post-stall gyrations and spins) in general correspond to the descriptions in the real aircraft documents;
-Flight manual in Russian for the game module is developed.
 
In order to present this module in the Early Access version, we are to complete the following items:
-make proper adjustments of operation of certain aircraft systems (for example, to adjust pump capacity, hydraulic fluid mass-flow rates, electric grid loads, etc.);
-translate the Flight manual into English for English-speaking users. We try to take into account all our mistakes made during the development of the previous modules. At this stage quality translation and localization of the game Manual for English-speaking users is the most significant problem;
-develop the Quick Start manuals in Russian and in English based on the complete Flight manuals in both languages.

DCS: F-5E Tiger II is now available for pre-purchase!

Belsimtek with The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics are happy to announce that DCS: F-5E Tiger II is available for pre-purchase from the DCS shop. The pre-purchase provides both a 20% discount off the retail price and access to the Early Access coming in July-August 2016.

DCS: F-5E Tiger II will sell for $59.99 in July 2016. Pre Purchase now for $47.99 and save 20%! In addition to the 20% purchase discount, pre-purchasers will receive a20% full-price value in bonus points for future purchases!



The F-5E was developed by Northrop Corporation in early 1970s. The light tactical fighter is an upgraded version based on previous F-5A developments. The F-5s’ combat role encompasses air superiority, ground support, and ground attack. Given its mission flexibility, ease of operation, and low cost, the Tiger II has, and continues to serve, air forces across the globe. 

The F-5E has trapeziform wings, two turbojet engines equipped with afterburners, and tricycle landing gear. Pitch, roll, and yaw control systems are hydraulically actuated in order to relieve control stick and rudder pedals forces. Artificial feel system is built in pitch and roll control systems to simulate aerodynamic loads for the pilot. For example: after the landing gear is retracted, left and right movement of the control stick is limited by a spring mechanism to prevent excessive roll rates.

A pressurized cockpit and air conditioning system ensures pilot safety at all altitudes up to the service ceiling. The pilot is also provided with an oxygen mask and anti-g suit. The cockpit is fitted with a Martin Baker SIII S-3 ejection seat, two UHF radios, automatic direction finder, radio navigation system, and a standard set of navigation lights. Landing-taxi lights are located on the underside of each engine inlet duct are extended together with the landing gear. The cockpit canopy provides a superb in-flight view appropriate for air-to-air operations.

The F-5E is armed with two 20-mm M39-A3 cannons with 280 rounds per each cannon. The cannons are located in the nose section, forward of the cockpit. Special deflectors are used to avoid compressor stall conditions caused by hot gas ingestion as a bi-product of operating the M-39-A3. Each cannon is capable of firing at a rate of 1500 to 1700 rounds per minute.

Each wingtip incorporates a launcher rail capable of firing AIM-9 infrared-guided missiles.

Five hard points (one centerline pylon and four underwing pylons) allow the aircraft to carry different types of air-to-ground weapons (bombs, cluster munitions, and rockets) 6,400 pounds (about 3000 kg) in total. In addition, illumination ammunition and cargo containers can be attached. To increase flight duration and range, external fuel tanks can be attached to three hard points (a centerline pylon and two inboard pylons). Maneuverability and speed can be maximized in combat by jettisoning all external stores.

I'm not buying anything from them anymore ! 

When they treat their customers  like garbage, they get nothing from me !

"What you seed is what you get"

 

And the F-5 won't sell good anyway, nothing to have in this plane, no IFF & weak weapons & performance!

Incoming release of Belsimtek F-5E Tiger II on DCS: World by BSK webpage
 
http://www.belsimtek.com/news/1645/
DCS: F-5E Tiger II Early Access
You can purchase the DCS: F-5E Tiger II here. The download will be available soon!
 
The Belsimtek team started the development of the F-5E model in April 2015. The main goal of the development was to achieve the highest possible degree of correspondence between the model and the real prototype. As usual, during development of the new module, it became necessary to apply new approaches for modelling objects of the engine and various systems. In case of the F-5E, it was necessary to increase the number of modelled units for the engine, that is why the engine model has been adjusted up to the present time. Nevertheless, it was worth it, the present engine model, along with the precise flight model of the aircraft, made it possible to achieve correspondence of all the parameters, such as acceleration, climb rate, speed bleeding, gliding in all altitudes range, airspeeds with various takeoff weights and engine operating modes. And, as usual, careful attention was paid to the model behavior at the stalling angles and beyond stall angles (after stall and at spinning)! These modes were tested for more than four months by the real pilots during alpha testing!
 
Main features of the DCS: F-5E Tiger II:
 
Professional flight and engine model, precisely reproducing the performance of the real prototype in all altitudes envelope.
temperatures and speeds for various weights and in-flight configurations.
Detailed, interactive cockpit with six degrees of freedom.
Interactive control of the cockpit elements using mouse.
Fully simulated armament system.
Electrical, fuel flow, hydraulic systems simulated in detail, as well as operation of the avionics.
Authentic liveries of several countries.
Complete set of training missions and single player missions.
Complete and quick start manuals in Russian and English.
Three-stage campaign for the F-5E module, developed by a third-party developer, outside the scope of the present module supply package (under development).
See the Flight Manual for more details about the aircraft, its systems, armament and combat employment for free.
