I wonder what will come after that, hopefully a Typhoon or a tempest followed by P-47 or an La 5 next

To be blunt, I don't think ED is putting too much focus into WWII era aircraft at this point, let along ground objects or anything else, this is probably something that will (and should) fall on a dedicated third party as they will have time to fill out the gaps.

That said, I always consider the DCS series to be a modern sim environment, as such, I don't sweat them not working on WWII stuff as much, we already have 777 working on another IL-2 so there really is no reason for ED to get too involved.

I still might pick up both the P-51 and the FW-190D when the latter comes out, the P-51 makes anything else out there look like child's play.

Of course there is a reason! We no longer will be getting a WW2 sim that has decent CEM and since DCS are the only company willing to cater for that they have my my money .

I think I'll wait for their F-86 and MiG-15.

This is the generation of jets that this old guy can wrap his mind around.
BVR and all that radar guided stuff, and a boat load of modern Milspeak goes right over my head. But lining up the gun sight on my enemy and pulling the trigger is something I can come to grips with.

I don't want another job with a learning curve up in low earth orbit. I want a simulation experience that still factors in the fun to play aspect.

You forgot the P-47, I think.

As much as I love the A-10 and Blackshark I prefer vintage warbirds like the f-86 and mig as like you said the pilot still has his finger on the trigger not the firing solution!

I am sure that the new IL-2 will not be as bad as many here would like to think it will be, I mean, lets not light the torches until we know more on that.

We do know "more" it has been stated that the level of CEM is less than what CoD gave us and for me that a show stopper.
