Speaking of large bombers, I wouldn’t mind a B52 but if I had the choice I would go for a B-58 because of the weird flying features and possibility of low penetration flights. I don’t see any chance to see a high fidelity one though. Too much of a niche.

Turns out there are mountains too in DCS maps 🙂

The same mountains, every day, you get to enjoy for 10 minutes or less until you need to turn, because now you've reached the end of the square box 🙂

That falls under how much time you spent on them too 🙂 But it's also why there are multiple square boxes to fly in. And depending on the situation you end up flying in them at different angles, routes, speeds etc etc. But in the end, i really don't think it's the scenery that will make DCS users shift on a civilian simulator. I guess we'll see. I know i'll enjoy both for different reasons 🙂

Personally I don't see the need for fighters in the this sim, but I do hope that once it is finished, Microsoft / Asobo will use this technology as a base for new products including a combat flight simulator.

You not seeing the need for something is irrelevant. 

DCS is a nice aircraft systems simulator, but is a very limited flight simulator. Military aviation deserves to be represented as much as any other segment.

If i want to fly fighters, i don't need to do it above my city

There are plenty of fighters (and other military hardware) over my city.  Of course, I'm kind of an outlier - I live about a 20-minute drive from Joint Base Andrews.  When the winds are out of the south, I get C-17s on right base outside my office window, and every so often an Air Force One flyby.  Wouldn't mind having some of that represented in the sim - including (slightly off topic) some good military AI.  Just sayin'...

I remember as a kid watching the C5's land at Dover AFB.  It'd be awesome to try to pilot one of those.  I really hope for all sizes of cargo planes and a few fighter jets.  there should definitely be military AI operating in their MOAs.  Maybe I can finally learn how to interact with MOAs.

What would be really cool would be formation flying with the Blue Angels.

Yesterday afternoon we had two Typhoons practising the interception of very low flying targets a few times in the vicinity, on one occasion directly over our house.

I do love such private air shows 🙂

I know.  I live in an area now where you can see two Blue Angles streaking just above the water and then a moment later you hear the roar of their engines.  Its like something out of a dream sometimes.

They also fly high over my house (and sometimes not so high) -- awesome to see and hear.

This brings back memories of traveling in Europe in 1980 - and in particular, a Luftwaffe F-104 that was practicing strafing runs on my Cologne-Amsterdam train.  If MSFS gives us trains and somebody delivers an F-104, I could relive that from the other guy's perspective.

one of the most impressive F104 videos IMO

And he lived to tell about it - yeesh!

I could see trying that in the sim.

Not succeeding, necessarily... but trying...
