New DCS Eurofigher Typhoon images

On the weekend, TrueGrit Virtual Technologies released some new images of their work in progress Eurofighter Typhoon for DCS World. These behind the scenes images show the cockpit texturing process coming together and reveal some interesting details on the types of Typhoon that will be on offer.

Is that a PIRATE? Arr!

Although TrueGrit revealed that their first priority is producing a basic level Eurofighter Typhoon and one likely in Luftwaffe configuration from the early part of the 2000’s, it appears that their 3D modeling team are ahead of the curve and have done a RAF version of the aircraft as well.

RAF Typhoons feature the PIRATE IRST which lets the Typhoon passively scan for aircraft by detecting their heat signature caused by engines and by the friction of air on the aircraft’s skin. It’s mounted on the port side of the fuselage forward of the cockpit windscreen.

The 3D models for the exterior still appear to be early days. The detail is definitely getting there and I’m sure before release they will be looking a good as the F-16, F/A-18, F-14 and others in the series. Development on this aircraft is still in the earlier stages so its hardly an indictment and when you see the detail on their cockpit work I have no concerns that it will get there.

Speaking of the cockpit detailing, we also get a look at their latest renders from the cockpit which is looking extremely detailed and up to the latest DCS World standards.

More images are likely to be posted here on the DCS World forum as time goes on.

    Hmm, it’s carrying an AIM-9. I thought the Germans used IRIS-T on their Tiffies?

    Good show having a UK Tr. 1 – lack of PIRATE would be a major absence for their aircraft as a whole.

      No IRIS-T yet available so AIM-9 I’m sure is a placeholder.

      Yeah I think the addition of a RAF version will be a good thing!

        Good point. Early access for me, in any case.

        Dangerous aircraft!
