Ships Ahoy - DCS: P-51D Mustang

The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics now offer DCS: P-51D Mustang via digital distribution, adding the Cadillac of the sky to the DCS series of combat flight simulators. Here's word on how this is both a hardcore and a casual flight sim: "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 created for the PC. Enjoy both the thrill of flying this legendary warbird and operating its various weapons against a variety of ground and airborne targets." The game is being sold through this webpage, and here's a feature list:

  • Highly detailed six-degrees-of-freedom cockpit.
  • Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse.
  • Unmatched flight physics and that allow you to truly feel what it's like to fly this legend.
  • Accurate P-51D Mustang model, squadron markings, and weapons.
  • Developed and tested by current Mustang pilots.
  • Detailed modelling the P-51D Mustang instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, electrical, and hydraulic systems.
  • Take part in a Challenge Campaign to test your flying and combat skills.
  • AI and player flyable 2nd World War German aircraft will become available in the future.

Oh, perhaps I should clarify for those that don't know. It's a simulation of the P-51D, but you fly it in modern Georgia, and all the other planes and vehicles are modern. So it's P-51's versus Su-27's or air-to-ground missions trying to evade SAMs and Shilkas.

I was wondering how it would work in multiplayer with the other DCS titles. I guess I have my answer: it's always in modern times.

Still tempting though.

It definitely is a lovely simulation of the P-51D but until they get some other WW2 aircraft in there to dogfight with, it's kind of pointless. I bought it when the beta became available, had a lovely time learning its systems and how to fly it, but now I don't have much use for it. It's not even like the A-10C or KA-50 where learning to just operate the systems will entertain you for weeks or months because it's such a relatively simple aircraft. A weekend or two will do it.

I don't really regret buying it (for what it is, it's fantastic), but for people possibly interested I would say put it on the back burner until they put in enough content to match it with so you can fly even remotely interesting missions.
