Dash@TrueGrit;4260824 :Hi guys!
My name is Jan (Dash), and I am the Community Manager for TrueGrit Virtual Technologies.
We are very proud to announce the Eurofighter Typhoon for DCS today, exactly 26 years after its maiden flight at Manching, Germany.
I have prepared some FAQ`s which I will post today.
However, if you have any other questions, feel free to post them below the FAQ sheet and I will do my best to get back to all of you as quickly as possible.
Also, check us out on Instagram (@truegrit_official), where I will also keep you updated on our progress.
Frequently asked Questions
What is TrueGrit Virtual Technologies?
TrueGrit Virtual Technologies is a young company created by former Eurofighter Pilots, Designers, Artists and Programmers, who all came together with one goal and one goal only:
To bring to you the most modern, sophisticated and agile fighter jet yet to conquer the skies of DCS world.
With our combined expertise in the various fields we always find ways to make the impossible a reality.
When will you release the mighty Eurofighter Typhoon?
Our team is working tirelessly to bring this sophisticated and modern fighter jet to you as quickly as possible. However, as our main goal is to create a Eurofighter Typhoon that exceeds your expectations and is a worthy replication of this mostly classified and active war machine, it will take some time. We have just started programming and designing.
Since I know, that most of you are just as excited as we are to finally fly the Eurofighter Typhoon in DCS for the first time, I will regularly keep you informed about our progress.
What Tranche/Nationality can we expect?
We are in constant communication with the “NETMA” and our licensor “Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH” in order to bring you the most current version of the Eurofighter possible, without violating classified information. I know a lot of you are eager to get information on the version we are bringing to DCS. I am sorry, that at this stage we won't be able to answer any questions concerning the tranche, software or block. Rest assured that once we can say more, we will!
As you might already have guessed from the published pictures and our company’s German background, we will create a German version of the Eurofighter Typhoon to start out. This version will only make the introduction to DCS as we will continue to bring more and more nationalities and capabilities to you over time.
Where do you get the data necessary for programming the Eurofighter Typhoon?
We made a huge effort over the past year, to gather all publicly available data and will continue to do so until we are satisfied with the final result.
How much will the Eurofighter Typhoon module cost?
We will launch the Typhoon in the class of “Epic Modules”. Expect the price in the same range.
Will the Eurofighter Typhoon include HMD, A/G, Iris-T, Meteor, Pirate, DVI, ASRAAM, LGB, ECR, JDAM, HARM, Lightning POD, AESA Radar?
We are working hard to include all capabilities of all different Typhoon nations. However, please keep in mind that there is a limit to what we can display with only using publicly available data. Therefore I hope you understand, that all questions concerning the specific capabilities can't be answered at this point.
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a single seat fighter by nature. The double seat version is a trainer which only uses a repeater cockpit. There is no benefit for a double seater, because up to now there is no multi crew concept.
Will there be early access available?
We will be in close coordination with Eagle Dynamics regarding the release stage and date.
If you have any more questions, feel free to post them! I will try. my best to get back to all of you.
