Most frequently flown/best plane for getting into dcs?


Recommended Posts

Just wondering what you guys fly the most frequently in DCS and what dlc I should buy first. :)


I've been looking at the F-15c, A-10c, Su-27 and the flaming cliffs DLC, I personally am not a big fan of russian and Post WW2/ WW2 aircraft. (Except for the Su-27). DCS dlc is on sale most going for €8 euro with Flaming and A-10c going for €22.




*Edit*   Just realised Su-27 and F-15c are both included with Flaming cliffs.   *Edit*

Start with Flaming cliffs learn the basics in one of the 5 planes,they are all fairly similar and you can get up to combat effectiveness fairly quickly in them 


then it's personal preference, the A-10C or MiG-21 are probably the most complete Study Sim modules with clickable pits and weapon deployment, but take a long time to learn and use them to full potential, 


the trainers are cool too, good for practicing basic unguided A2G / Rocket & aerobatics


The Helos are worth the time learning too they are fun to go tank hunting with once you're up to speed with all their systems

The Ka-50 is pretty much the same level as the A-10C except you have a higher workload trying to keep one step ahead of the helo on it's mission of killing you at every opertunity :D

My "best" aircraft changes from week to week :P at the moment the A10C is pretty hot in my books but the L39 is a great trainer. Don't leave out helicopters either, the Huey is simple enough to enter the genre, has a good campaign and packs a lot of firepower for lighter armed targets.


However to answer your forum post with regards to flaming cliffs I'll echo sozio and rave really. SU25T is a valuable aircraft to have on the battlefield although a little bit of a pig to fly at first, flaming cliffs is a great purchase if you just want to get up and go with the advanced  flight models but then you miss the fidelity of ASM ((Advanced Systems Modelling)the clickable cockpit essentially).

Yes. All modules (including the free SU-25T and TF-51) are compatible online and you don't need any of the other modules to be able to see them (eg you could be in the Su-25T and you'd still be able to see people in a Huey even if you haven't bought it).
