Reviews

“DCS: A10C Warthog is a tremendously – and at times obscenely – demanding game. You will experience cranial overload, and you will, unless you're a devout ED disciple, curse the developer for being so damned cryptic. But for those who favor stepping into the shoes of a real pilot who flies but a single plane, and for those who are willing to commit fully to a program that may well take months to evolve, this is the current peak of the genre.”
8/10 – IGN

“DCS: A-10C Warthog isn’t for everyone—this is a simulation that demands dedication to reveal its true worth, and only those prepared to put in the time and effort to mine its treasure trove of avionics challenges will see that reward. The Hog is a relatively easy aircraft to fly, but doing so while battling armed forces with this brutally realistic weapons delivery platform is one of the most challenging—and intensely satisfying—undertakings you’ll ever face in a PC flight sim.”
92/100 – PC Gamer

About the Game

DCS: A-10C Warthog is a PC simulation of the U.S. premier Close Air Support attack aircraft. This is the second aircraft in the DCS series, following DCS: Black Shark, and raises the bar even higher in the DCS series. Warthog brings the most realistic PC simulation of a modern fixed wing combat aircraft in regards to flight dynamics, avionics, sensors, and weapon systems. You also have the option to play Warthog in "Game" mode for a casual game experience. Fly missions in the Caucuses region of the Black Sea against and with a wide array of air, land and sea forces with new and improved intelligence. Create your own missions and campaigns with the included Mission and Campaign Editors, and fly with and against friends online using the included online game browser.

Key features:

  • Fly the A-10C “Warthog” in either realistic or game modes.
  • Fly missions in either Georgia and Russia.
  • Interactive training missions shallow the learning curve dramatically.
  • Rich campaigns and single missions included.
  • Multiplayer cooperative and head-to-head.
  • Feature-rich Mission and Campaign editors allow user created content.
  • The most realistic flight dynamics ever done for a PC simulation.
  • Huge array of land, air and sea units to flight along and against.
  • Ability to command ground forces during missions.
  • Fully interactive Forward Air Controller (FAC) that helps you find targets.

Insanly detailed in every way, from A-10 model itself to the detail in it's handling.

This game is the apex of flight simulation and will probably end up spoiling you due to the level of detail.

It's perfect, but READ THE MANUAL. Otherwise, this game isn't for you. It's way too hardcore if you don't take the time to learn it. Yes, you LEARN this game. Not play it.

If you want a challenge get this game.

10/10

At some point in the cold war people were very afraid of the russian tanks and somebody had the bright idea to build a big ♥♥♥ gun to kill them. The gun was cool, could kill tanks, but couldn't move and was an easy target for said tanks... But some smart engineers thought, WAIT, what if this gun could fly around and shoot tanks from the air!?

The Warthog was born.

DCS:A10C manages to capture me now for nearly a year and I swear everyone should get this and try his hand, not just a few hours jumping in, but really trying! It truly deserves the title 'Study-sim' and the amount of ♥♥♥♥ you can do is unbelievable. Even after a year I still discover new functions, quirks and little tricks.

But even a noob can have great fun just shooting that gun on an airfield or just try his hand at landings. Once he gets past setting up his joystick of course. :)

the most realistic flight sim that ive ever played. Definatley recommend it to the airplane enthusiasts. But be warned... there is a steep learning curve to learn to fly this airplane.
