I bought the DCS JF-17 a few months ago when it was released but never really took the time to get familiar with it until now. On Sunday I decided to spend the week learning how to use it. I still need to learn how to use the anti-ship and anti-radar missiles, but I think I got the hang of most of it. It’s similar to the F/A-18 so that helped a lot.
I also picked up the Fw-190A8 yesterday since it was on sale. The WW2 birds are a bitch to get off and on the ground, but once I learned the trick of locking the tail wheel it’s much more tame. Still tricky, but doable. After flying the sleek modern jets, it really feels like the airplane version of a 50's F1 car.
Next week I think I’ll focus on the Mirage M-2000.
