Any Arma coverage is awesome in my book. I love seeing Arma and DCS get coverage like this. Some of the best gaming experiences that I've had in modern times came from organized Arma missions.

Glad to see some TrackIR coverage!

So, this is just an ad right?

@Conzed92: You can be off the ground in roughly 5-minutes once you know what you are doing.

Glad to see more DCS A-10c coverage!

Once you get the takeoff procedures memorized (probably after doing it 3 times or so), it really don't take that long to get up and running. The longest part is probably the wait for gyro alignment and a 4.0 0.8 reading on your CDU before switching over to NAV and EGI mode -- if you don't wait you won't be able to engage autopilot (The EAC switch won't flip forward to armed - you can see that it is not flipped forward when he tries to engage autopilot - second switch left of autopilot engage button). This is the most common mistake that people make (moving before they are properly aligned).

I use that time to cycle through F2 and look at other people flying as well as setting up my weapon profiles.

Once you get used to flying one of the most enjoyable weapon systems to learn is slaving AGMs to your TGP.

Try this (I keep a good Google Doc full of this stuff):

Warm up AGM Mav (bring out of idle state - ~2-3mins)

Select TGP

China Hat Aft Long to slave TGP to current steerpoint (assuming target is at steerpoint, otherwise manually slew)

Make TGP SOI

Slew TGP to desired target

TMS Forward short to cycle to Point Track Mode

Hold TMS Forward Long to move SPI to TGP location

Switch to AGM, make SOI

Hold China Hat Forward Long to slave AGM (and all sensors) to SPI

Ground stabalize AGM to achieve lock (TMS Forward short)

Fire and forget

If you like DCS A-10c and want to get your hands dirty on a helicopter sim check out DCS Blackshark 2 -- it's compatible with A-10c in multiplayer now as well. A lot of the multiplayer missions I've been playing lately have Blacksharks flying in low, sniping shilkas to clear the way for the big birds.

If you have an iPad checkout iPadPit (the free version as well) or iControlDCS - they let you put your MFCDs on your iPad for touch screen controls among other things. iWarthog (all iOS devices) also works great as a handy reference with ATC frequencies, runway headings, etc.

Somebody needs to get Drew some TrackIR!

Love this game. Definitely the best flight sim to date.

Hell yes DCS A-10c Warthog!!!! Thank you for finally mentioning my personal GOTY. This game is the best flight sim ever made bar none.

Are those screenshots captured directly from the console's output? The graphics look horrible. I might use those to convince some of my friends to finally buy a graphics card for their PCs.

I would love to pick this game up, but it's not on Steam and I absolutely refuse to buy it on Origin.  That coupled with a heavy reliance on PhysX makes this game a pass in my book.

I propose everyone on the GB Steam group gets together early tonight for some GB community PC throwdown.
