Let There Be Thrust! – F-14 Development Update

Heatblur Simulations:

Let there be Thrust!
Heatblur Advanced Engine Modeling Update (F-14B F110-GE-400)

Development of the new Heatblur advanced engine model has continued and over the past few months, and our F110-GE-400 engine model has been getting its final touches.

The F110 was selected to replace the F-14A’s ailing TF30 for two primary reasons; its significant increase in thrust, and its greatly increased reliability.
While the F110’s operation can be described as extremely reliable, the focus of this update will be on its implemented failure modes and off-nominal operations.

Heatblur’s F110 will feature an extensive library of failure modes and degraded operation, ranging from slow oil leaks all the way to engine fires.

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE #3: Phoenix Rising!

Leatherneck Simulations:

Dear All,

For the F-14 project, we realized that we’ll need to spend considerable time and effort with the development and research for the AIM-54 Phoenix missile.

Not only due to this weapons’ unique place as a weapon designed specifically for the AWG-9 radar system, its’ role as the tip of the spear of the USN air-to-air capability or even it’s amazing range and performance– but also to ensure that any advantages and disadvantages of the missile are accurately reproduced and respected.

It’s quite likely that the AIM-54 will change the players’ experience in the DCS multiplayer environment.
Thus, we consider it of the utmost importance to have a wide breadth of open and readily available research available to the community. Jatka lukemista
