    I haven't checked your builds in a while and am starting to realize how much has changed.

    Hey, i made some changes to it such as: naming the weapons (as best i could) to real life weapons. Added gun pods like carried on the su-25, added the ECM on the wing tips (chaff in this case) annnd yeah. Just a few tweaks. Oh and added jet trails. Ill post it unlisted and link you it! I hope you dont mind and you like my tweaks. http://www.simpleplanes.com/a/2mqpZZ/Su-25-Frogfoot

    How do you make the right and the left rocket pods fire at the same time?
    also great plane you got here.

    @BogdanX BTW, I own the following planes in DCS:
    F-14
    Su-33
    A-10C
    M-2000C
    F-15C
    The reason I am telling you this is because I will be glad to contribute to your builds in some way using these. I can record footage and take screenshots of specific things at request. If you plan on making some of these in the future and you cannot find a good image of something online, just ask me :)
    Another thing is that DCS comes with detailed 3D models of all aircraft that have modules made of them, FOR FREE. You do not need to buy the aircraft to view their external model. You can simply select Encyclopedia from the main menu and view a turnaround of them. There are also models of many aircraft that do not yet have modules, but they are to a lower level of quality.

    Probably one of the most detailed planes I've seen...

    @BogdanX I don't expect perfection from you, or anyone for that matter. I wouldn't have commented, had it not been for the previous excellent performance of your builds (such as the A-10, of similar role which had an excellent flight model and I still like flying) and past tendency to rather heavily lay down criticism on other's builds. As for turn radius, a metric you like to use a lot, you never consider the g-force stresses on the plane or the pilot. You'll never see a jet irl pull a 20g turn since it would fall apart and/or kill the pilot. SP doesn't simulate this so of course your perceived performance is better than you'd expect at first glance. At some point I might make a mod for at least simulating G-blackouts.

    @BogdanX @BogdanX oh. Didn't know that there are types of ammo like that. I've seen red colored one but not green. Did a bit of research and it seems that they are fired every fifth bullet or so also that is what I noticed in your build. Guess my knowledge in weaponry is not so wide after all lol. Thanks for the info!

    It's nice, but I struggle to believe you used DCS for the flight model testing... In this 60 degree climb it's accelerating. I tried this in DCS, and even with no ordinance and fairly little fuel, it falls right out of the sky.

    @BogdanX oh ok, that'll take forever to finish do you think? :)

    @BogdanX oh man you forgot all my suggestions haha
    the XR/F-12 is something that I'm sure will give you something to work with. it's a 4 engine reconnaissance aircraft that still holds the record for the fastest quad engine in level flight.
    I hope you'll consider it for next time!
