Having fun with DCS: TF-51D Mustang

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the DCS: Su-25T which is one of the two aircraft that are free to play in DCS World. Today I’m writing about the other free to play aircraft: the TF-51D Mustang. There’s a lot to like about this free module within the DCS World aircraft collection and…

The U-2VS review

The U-2VS is an interesting and unique aircraft for the IL-2: Great Battles Series and it offers a variety of gameplay options for virtual pilots.

First impressions of the Pfalz D.IIIa in Flying Circus

I’ve struggled to write a first impression on the Pfalz D.IIIa for Flying Circus. Flying it in combat several times now in QMB and even in multiplayer have failed to leave the kind of impression that I like to try and provide when I write these. Instead, the Pfalz D.IIIa I think can be regarded…

First impressions of Flying Circus’ Sopwith Camel

Thanks to tech issues (which are now solved), the impending holiday season, and a bunch of other stuff going on I haven’t really had time to sit down and write my thoughts about the new Sopwith Camel recently added to the Flying Circus Vol 1 line-up. Now, however, I’ve had time to fly it and…

First impressions of the Bf109K-4 in IL-2

Sea Dragon’s is a Scripted Campaign that comes with IL-2: Battle of Kuban so this review isn’t one that will convince you if this Scripted Campaign is worth your hard-earned cash, but rather a preview of what the experience is and if its worth your time. With that in mind, let’s have a look at…

First impressions of the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet

Normally I like to try and get my first impressions within a few days of the release. I decided against that with the Hornet as I needed to climb up through the basic training before I felt like I was able to give any sort of reaction or proper response to this aircraft. Now, I’m…

DCS: Persian Gulf first impressions

It’s been a busy week for combat flight simulators and that means my time with the latest in content has been limited. I have had a chance to explore a few pieces of the Persian Gulf map and that means I have some screenshots and a chance to write-up my first impressions. Welcome to the…
