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 This Content

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.

Seriously good flight simulation game!
Love the comments of others.... start engine, beep beep beep, take off, beep beep beep, crash!
Bit hard to get the hang of initially, the in game guides aren't that brilliant but there is loads of information on the internet on how to use the avionics systems!
Definitely get yourself a decent joystick and throttle quadrant for this game! I have a (budget) Thrustmaster T-flight Hotas X which works very well!
I can also recommend using a webcam with FaceTrackNoIR (http://facetracknoir.sourceforge.net), also iControlDCS (http://bit-shift.com)
The full version of iControlDCS is quite pricey but if you have an iPad and an Android tablet you can run some controls on the iPad and the Flight Displays on the 'droid for free!

Everything is simulated except IFF. Great game, great plane. I would reccomend this to anyone that enjoys flight simulation and people looking for a challenge. You almost need to have a fundenmental understnading about the aircraft before you do the Training missions because everything goes so fast and they lay on the jargon pretty thick. Only drawback is no ability to be in charge of ATO's.

I highly recommend this add-on to DCS, it really is incredible. It may take you 20 or so hours to actually "get" what's going on with the plane, but that's part of the fun. But after you finally understand what you're doing it is a very immersive experience. It reminds me of my childhood dream of being a pilot.

Also, I recommend buying a joystick, do not use a controller it is horrible

Just simply amazing! I have had this module for about a year and just now decided to make a review. Really good detail! Steep learning curve, it will take about a month to learn all about this aircraft and maybe another month or two to master it. I have talked to a A-10C pilot before and he has flyed this simulator before too, he said it was scary how realistic it was. This module is NOT for you if you just wanna hit some bindings on the keyboard and go. If you are serious about flying then this module is for you! #savethea10
