even if I ever get the money, and my health lets me fly.... it is crazy expensive to have everything.... I can see the F-16.. it is the most tempting, but with IL-2 covering WWII.... and then there is the computer hardware that needs updated.... everyone will have to focus on one area, one timeline for wars.. maps, etc.. or else flying all, which is strange.... Maybe we need to decide on our main map, our main aircraft,, our main years.... The splintering of us going off into different directions as far as DCS goes....

Maybe if one night we setup a dedicated map or fly a certain server.... one night is practice, and if there is a third, that night is another aircraft or map. I just want to see everyone together. Not everyone has to be in same aircraft, but at least same theme...

I hope that is clear..

I want a training night back, just for training. Could use similar aircraft if some doe snot have  specific aircraft. Then, train, navigation, or weapons, or whatever on training night, Then, move to another 'type of aircraft' the next week.

When it comes to DCS I am still about jets. I will buy the A-8 to support ED since I feel they did me right after the kickstarter thing with Luthier went south (which is what got me into DCS and their Jets, to begin with) but I don't plan on flying much DCS WWII until they release the P-47 and finish the new damage model and even then it will be in small amounts.  BOX has WWII well covered and has considerably more content, that said it is good that 777 has some competition, keeps them honest.

I agree Ram, all these planes makes it hard to master one thing, I have restricted myself (for the most part) to flying the F-18 and the A-10 and helios when needed along with the occasional F5/Mig 21 sortie.  I could be wrong but I think the modern stuff is where everyone wants to be right now.

Yep, similar - for me, WW2 is covered with BoX, anything after is DCS.   I support both developers, but I can’t afford to get everything lol.

Looking forward to th F-16!

Well I already have the D9.  There's little point spending $40 on almost the exact same aircraft.  Plus we never fly the WWII stuff anyway.  I'll get it eventually when it goes on sale and/or can use bonus points for it. 

Will definitely get the 16 tho.

i get many of the AC and agree that it is hard to get good at any of them if one does not concentrate on one or a few at most. many times i get the AC to just pilot them. "first become a pilot then become a warrior". by what i have read transition from F18 to F16 systems will be simpler.
