I would like to try PBEM with 1.08 ?  (World War II Europe 1939-1945 (WWIIE)) Preferably start off with a small scenario, to test the new features.

I'll play one turn a day generally.
I'm a newbie

DCS World exports the IAS only for the local (player) aircraft. AI aircraft do not expose this information.

Maybe the estimated CAS in Tacview, will bring you closer to the IAS for your computations.

Hello Russ,

I think that the best it to use the ICAO Aircraft Type Designators:

I have updated my documentation to reflect this.

Note Tacview database does not contains many WWII aircraft yet. I am going to add most of your list soon. Also, if you have 3D models, free of copyright, you would like to share, I will gladly add them in Tacview.

I am curious about your WWII game, can you PM me its name? ;)

Thanks Frankie - it is indeed a Challenger 2

As for the size difference - there may be a scale issue with one of them. According to Wiki they are both 8.3m long (not including the main armament) and yet the Challenger 2 model is considerably longer.

The width for them is fairly similar and shows in the models - but either the Challenger 2 is too long or the Leo is too short  :facepalm_smiley

Hi Judge Dredd

Very nice Challenger 2 (I assume it's a '2') tank. Look at its size compared to the German big cat! I can't wait to see the Chalenger's interior (bad SB joke here har har).

Thanks Asid. I'll probably get on that tonight

A couple of bad boys on the lookout for some Russian armour (which I don't have - yet)

Hi - sorry not sure if I should just ask here or start a thread. I am new to Tacview and just purchased it for use with DCS which I am just getting back into with 2.0 and Nevada, awesome software and very useful for analysing your engagements!
I was just woindering if there was any specific reason IAS is not displayed for the enemy aircraft? I have it selected for the tab and it shows for my A/C but nothing for the enemy. I have to enable TAS as well for both and calculate from there.

Yes, great game. Lots of falling down and not getting back up though...
