DCS: F-14 Tomcat プリオーダー開始

0

コンバットフライトシミュレーター、DCS Worldの追加モジュールである、DCS: F-14 Tomcat のプリオーダーが開始されました。

戦闘機の代名詞ともいえる、かつての米海軍の主力、現在でもイラン空軍で活躍中のF-14を追加するモジュールです。
タイトルはF-14Bとなってるものの、本モジュールではF-14A、F-14Bの両者を収録予定となっています。
サードパーティ製モデルとなり、開発はHeatblur Simulationsが行っています。

サードパーティ版PFMにあたる、External Flight Modelによるフライトモデルが採用、AIM-54ミサイル、TARPSやLANTIRNポッドなど、F-14に搭載されていた兵器・システムが新たに追加されます。
多くの博物館にて撮影された写真をもとに、非常に高精度なコックピットが収録されます。
JESTER AIと呼ばれる新規AIシステムにより、複座機であるF-14にてシングルフライト中に、後部座席(RIO)へ各種コマンドを送ることが可能です。

その他の特徴は下記の通りです(原文ママ)

  • The simulation of both the A* and B model Tomcat, the A model following the B later during the Early Access period.
  • Highly detailed external model, built using laser scanning and photogrammetry taken of real, museum F-14 Tomcats.
  • New models for some of the F-14 Tomcat payloads, such as the AIM-54 Phoenix and the LANTIRN pod.
  • Highly detailed and accurate 6-DOF (Degrees of Freedom) cockpit also built using photogrammetry from the F-14 Tomcats preserved at museums.
  • Highly accurate, F-14 pilot verified, External Flight Model (EFM) based on real performance data.
  • Accurate aircraft systems simulation featuring:
    • The Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS).
    • The variable wing geometry, wing-sweep, system.
    • Detailed electrical, hydraulic and fuel system.
  • Fully functional multiplayer two seat functionality allowing a pilot to carry another player functioning as the Radar Intercept Officer, RIO.
  • JESTER AI: A new, lifelike AI that fills the role of RIO when flying single-player or multiplayer without a human RIO.
  • A limited functionality Iceman AI piloting the aircraft in single-player when switching to the rear cockpit.
  • Both AIs feature an interactive interface with a comprehensive library of voice acted phrases.
  • Simulation of the AN/AWG-9 Weapons Control System (WCS) featuring:
    • A custom model of the AN/AWG-9 radar featuring Pulse Search, Pulse Doppler Search, Range-While-Scan and Track-While-Scan modes as well as both pulse and pulse doppler Single Target Track (STT) modes.
    • The ability to prepare and launch the AIM-54 Phoenix, both at single targets and at up to six targets simultaneously using the TWS mode.
    • The Television Camera Set (TCS) allowing visual identification of targets in Beyond Visual Range (BVR) situations.
    • The Link-4 datalink allowing reception of tracks from an E-2 AWACS or a surface unit.
  • The complete F-14A and B Tomcat payload, including AIM-7, AIM-9 and AIM-54 air to air missiles, various dumb and guided air to ground munitions as well as the M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon.
  • A functional simulation of the LANTIRN designator pod, allowing the RIO to guide laser guided munitions dropped by the pilot or other aircraft (buddy-lasing).
  • The Tactical Airborne Reconnaissance Pod System (TARPS), allowing the player to fulfil the aerial photographic reconnaissance mission. *
  • Fully functional carrier interoperability featuring systems such as the Instrument Carrier Landing System (ICLS) and the Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS).
  • Comprehensive digital manual, both as a PDF and as a continually updated online manual.
  • A complete set of interactive and voiced tutorials.
  • Comprehensive campaigns for both the F-14A and F-14B Tomcat, one set in the Caucasus theatre and the other for the Persian Gulf theatre.

* The F-14A and the TARPS pod will follow later during the Early Access period and the tutorials and campaigns will be implemented and expanded during this early access as well.
