DCS: P-51D Mustang Trailer

This trailer features in-game footage from an early build of DCS: P-51D Mustang, the upcoming World War II aerial combat game from Digital Combat Simulator. Here's a bit on what to expect from the game: "The DCS: P-51D Mustang offers both highly-detailed simulation and easy-to-play "game" mode options for both hardcore and casual gamers. When in simulation mode, this is the most authentic simulation of the P-51D Mustang that has ever been done for the PC."

Wonder what kind of DRM they're looking at on this one...

They could add still-inservice-Vietnam-era soviet fighters.
DCS is currently adding these through their third party developer program. One of the first third party aircraft announced was the MIG21B.

DCS:World makes me wish I hadn't sold all my flight sim gear.

Wow, DCS is going to rock the sim world at that rate.

I've never thought much about flight sims, but that was pretty f-ing cool.

Did you actually watch the video? They appeared to be engaging German aircraft. I also thought this was odd (a WW2 aircraft placed into a modern setting) but it looks as though they're at least providing enemy aircraft to dogfight.

No, I'm pretty sure those are just other P-51's they're fighting. Certainly there is nothing but P-51's in there now, and last I heard there were no plans to add any contemporary opponents. Surely modders will take care of it eventually though. There are already screenshots of modded 190's floating around (likely P-51D physics with 190 models, but that's better than nothing).

It is indeed a lovely simulation of the P-51D, but there isn't a whole lot to do with it yet.
They could add still-inservice-Vietnam-era soviet fighters. The P-51 was still in service then, at least according to one Hollywood depiction. That could make for some very interesting cold-war era cannon combat..

*sigh*

Oh, to have the time to put into something like this. The sims these days look SO much better than when I played them 10-15 years ago.

Gotta hand it to them, they seem to know exactly what we want.

Still enjoying the heck out of DCS: A-10C. So much to learn. So many things to try. Very satisfying to get things right after struggling to get up to speed.

Uh, the game has been available in public beta form for nearly two months now. Just preorder, download, and play.
