Thanks! I flew this track a while back after having practiced the A-10 West iteration by Rifle mostly. Figured I'd have a go at the A-10 East version by HABU to pick up on all the subtle differences in how each team executes the same set of maneuvers, and this was just the fruits of an impromptu recording I made from that sortie.

I wish we had more jets in DCS. Love the way it handles!

You will have no problems performing, except shooting popcorn out of your cannons for your VFAT followers ;) Unless... there's something you haven't told us... :shock:

It's really sad that ACC scrapped the A-10 demos. Here's a great video of the real A-10 East Coast Demo from 2011 (looks familiar, ;) ):
