Jump to Mission:    [3a]    [6a] [6b] [6c] [6d] [Video Interlude #1] Jump to Campaign Mission: [C1-1] [C1-2] [C1-3] [Video Interlude #2] Digital Combat Simulator: A-10C Warthog is a combat flight simulator developed by Eagle Dynamics and published by The Fighter Collection. Apparently they're called The Fighter Collection because they actually own a collection of fighter planes. Neat. The game(s) website can be found here. This flight simulator actually began as an instrument training simulator for the A-10C, and then had the physics models bolted on, making it into something that actually could be described as a game. All of the instruments and controls are preserved, creating a wall of inscrutable dials, gauges, switches and buttons. Some of which are of exceedingly dubious utility in a flight sim, like a button that tests warning lights. If this sounds unfun and way out of your league, fret not: you're not the one that has to fly it. Sit back and enjoy my futile attempt to make this thing work like the lumbering angel of death it's supposed to be. I'll be resizing screenshots to half size and sticking them in spoilers so that your computer doesn't freak out while downloading the images. I didn't record or screencap much of the first training sessions, so here's a faithful reproduction: And that concludes the highlights of training. Next up: maybe some technical info on the plane and it's armarments, and I try to kill things that aren't drones or stationary targets.
