We haven’t heard an awful lot from Heatblur recently. With the F-14B in excellent shape, there is little to complain about, however, there are still a few features to knock off the list and here comes one of them – the AVIA page. Also, Defender of the Fleet by Meteor, the official soundtrack of the DCS: F-14 is available on vinyl for the vinyl collectors out there.
AVIA page for the RIO
AVIA, a new display for the RIO, is a helpful area intended to support the pilot with things like AOA, VV, ILS, and ACLS. The last two in particular should be very help for CASE III landings while AOA is a bit more multi-purpose.
I haven’t been able to learn much more about the functionality but I would assume it will be coming to the F-14 sooner than later.
Defender of the Fleet on Vinyl
If you’re a vinyl collector and want to have Defender of the Fleet (the DCS: F-14 soundtrack by Meteor) it’s now available for pre-order on vinyl at DiggersFactory. Heatblur posted a link late last month letting fans know and I’m just doing a little catch-up.
Waiting on the F-14A
Early in 2020, Heatblur gave us an update on the DCS: F-14 including news that they would be talking much more about the F-14A sometime later this quarter. So far, we haven’t heard much from them but hopefully we’ll be seeing much more as Q1 comes to a close in just a few weeks.
