    ?? Did I say otherwise? The only mention of the F-16 I made is that it is lacking in a deep strike scenario compared with the F-35 (this was of course nothing the F-16 was designed to do). I mentioned the deep strike just as a rather strange capability for Norway to highlight in the fighter selection process (this was of course to make the F-35 look good compared with the Gripen). The F-16 has been a tremendous success for the European countries as a multirole fighter with a service life which will cover more than 40 years as a frontline fighter. I believe the European countries very much sees the F-35 as a modern F-16 class multirole fighter. I would imagine the critics very much said the same thing about the F-16 when it was replacing the F-5 as they say today about the F-35. "To...

    For most of the non US F-35 customers, they buy it for its fighter capabilities and have no need for a single role “bomb truck” and don’t have the luxury to have a dedicated F-22 type fighter. Having said that it looks like from the Norwegian fighter competition when it was compared to the Gripen that the F-35 capability for “deep strike” (deep compared to what an F-16/Gripen can do) against highly defended areas was a major reason for selecting it. Why suddenly Norway wanted this capability is another discussion…<o:p></o:p> In Norway it looks like the real problem is the maintenance cost, the planning so far has pointed towards that it is way more costly to fly and operate than the F-16. It might very well eat up large parts of the total defense spending of the smaller nations and...

    Very nice to see the Skjold class coastal corvette! (formerly called Missile torpedo boat) We don't really have the funding to have these boats in the Norwegian military, but the ships themselves are rather lethal machines. Very high speed, stealth capabilities and a heavy armament of one 76 gun and 8 Norwegian made NSM long range anti ship stealth missiles. Really made for a cold war type scenario. Their high cost made them unwelcome in the Norwegian military and the program was only saved by the politicians which wanted to save the ship yard which made them... But in todays situation with Russia, they are maybe not a bad capability to have after all.. if the Norwegian navy only could find money to fund their use..

    The Virtavia FAW.9 and FAW.5 would be a portover -- I did the original textures (and some follow-ons) back in 2007. It is available as the whole package, and as the aircraft and extra DLC. I don't know if anyone made a new one since then. :ernaehrung004:

    I think if you bother to read any software license rather than just click the "I Agree" button to get on with it you'll find that you can only install it on one PC. :ernaehrung004:

    That's the cheapest it's ever been. If you have any thoughts about getting it this is the time. And you don't even have to install it until you are ready, if ever. I'm running both MS FSX and FSX-SE on the same Win 8.1 machine with no issues except the FSX-SE version is a lot more reliable. Summer Sale ends Tuesday, not sure how long this price will hold. Might just be one of their flash sales that last a few hours. :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks! Have you done the rework to any other of the german airbases? Neuburg is sort of special for me as it is one of a few Luftwaffe bases I have actually been to. We flew both into and out of Neuburg when my old unit was a month training at the German army Infantry school at Hammelburg. Luftwaffe Transall back to Norway with a heavy headwind, 6-7 hours flight time if I remember correctly.. The other is Holzdorf in the east.

    Hello, I have tried to install the German AB sceneries found on this page in P3D http://fsx-milaip.de/startseite/meine-fsx-szenerien/neuburg-ab-v-1/ The sceneries themselves shows up, but not the taxiways, just the center markingline. Is it a mesh difference problem or are there any other fix? Sort of sad to not have a home for all the great Luftwaffe and MF Starfighter paints..
