The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics will release their next Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) aircraft in 2012: the legendary P-51D Mustang. The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and manoeuvrability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII, and later fought in the Korean War.

Really awesome news for flight simmers. DCS Warthog and Black Shark were amazing, so having the P-51D done to the same standard will be awesome! Going to be great to shoot down some A10C's and SU25's in a P-51 haha.

Looks cool, but I'll just stall it, so I think I'll pass tongue.gif

Looks cool, and a WWII fighter should be much easier to figure out than the A-10 Warthog. I bought DCS Warthog and just haven't had the time to spend the several hours I think it'll take to understand it.

World of Warplanes will be out this year as well. If you ever played World of Tanks then you will probably already know about it.

If you dont know about either of them then you are missing out..

This is a simulator. World of tanks and world of warplanes are arcade games.

The only problem i see is that this is a addon plane for dcs a-10 not a entirely new game so u can have a-10 vs p51

What's wrong with that?

Apart from being a bit unrealistic, DCS will be releasing other Flying Legends planes to go with the P51 in the future, but for now I think it's fine it'll be mixed with the A10C and KA-50. The P51D can actually fly slightly faster than a A10C when cruising, and they have the same max speed. The A10C has a better rate of climb, but the P51 is far more maneuverable. The P51D at the hands of a relatively decent pilot should be able to dance all around an A10C and take it down.
