Thanks to Deka Ironworks, J-11A is being implemented in DCS World. The Export version of our current Su-27S is currently being tested. It is a quick conversion of the Flaming Cliff Su-27, however it is equipped with upgraded fire control system allowing R-77 missiles, and a few visual upgrades. Sure thing: this will make the Su-27 enthusiasts happy. For server without Red/Blue setup, the J-11A will deliver with some US fictional textures. We don’t know yet if the jet will be sold alone or will be added to FC3 package for free.
Thanks for the support from ED, flyable J-11A as part of FC3 will be in DCS in next update. IRL, J-11A is almost identical to Su-27SK but with some upgrade of avionics to launch R-77. From external, J-11A has many difference from Su-27 and I believe most of you have already noticed them.
In game, players will see completely same avionics as Su-27, but can launch R-77 [no countdown timer, IRL, there is not either], and can control the anti-collision light [same key as F-15C anti-collision light]. Currently, we don’t have time/artist to modify the cockpit (SEI-31 replaced by MFI-55, and some gauge position change). Maybe in the future, we would try to give J-11A a unique cockpit model.
Thanks ED again!
