The Community A-4E-C Mod is the culmination of nearly three years of work on behalf of seven driven team members and many vital advisors. We’re proud to present the most comprehensive DCS Mod to date, boasting such capabilities as Air to Ground Radar and Carrier Operations. The A-4 was a cold war workhorse, providing a capable, reliable light attack aircraft to dozens of nations around the world. From the Sinai Desert to the Jungles of Vietnam, the A-4 was a common sight above cold war battlefields.
We thank the community for their support over the years, through good times and bad. This work has been a journey with many faces along the way, and we dedicate it to our friend, mentor and lead coder Eric “Gosapadin” Mudama. His passion and brilliance left a mark on us all, and we are proud to share with you this labor of love which would not have been possible without him.

Report Bugs HERE:
Carrier Takeoff Flight Dynamics activate when taxing at airbases of 60-70 M ASL
Known solution: Taxi while tapping brakes, reducing speed and preventing “runaway” raxis

Known Solution: Restart game
Dispensing high volumes of bomblets (40+) from SUU-7/CBU-1/CBU-2 causes serious performance dip and/or crash.
Known solution: Drop bomblets in bursts of 10-20
Aircraft cannot cold start from a carrier deck due to carrier movement and use of the huffer for startup.
Known solution: Start all carrier missions hot
Interior red lighting switch frozen and lighting won’t turn off.
