Default So, I Got Falcon 4.0 AF...

I got the game a few weeks ago and I've gotta say, excellent sim. It does have its issues though, and it is not the most stable game I've ever played (hopefully this wil be rectified in future patches.) The only true knocks I would give it are the fact that it does not allow the player to use GPS ordinace like the JDAM or JSOW that are becoming so important in modern warfare. These weapons have become so prevalent lately that I see their absence from F4AF as almost inexcuseable, but just almost because otherwise this is the best cfs I've played in quite some time. But no JSOW or JDAM? Cmon...

Do you play LO:MAC, (Lock On Modern air combat) up there with F4 realism.

Ive played F4 the first one and now play LO:MAC but wonder about trying this one F4 AF

Their both excellent sims, though each caters to a specifc group. Falcon models one aircraft to the extreme much like the old Jane's sims did. LOMAC on the other hand is a "lite" sim compared to Falcon, though I still perfer it for quick seesions.

The Su25T is great thing to fly, there are new physics details like burting tires when you land too hard and etc.
Actually i prefer Lomac over Falcon4AF, it's because of better graphics and far way the best modeled terrain i've seen in a flightsim, which increase the immersion of flying greatly especialy when doing low altitude manouvres.

whoa, I'm not knocking either sim, I fly both. All I'm saying is that each sim is different and in that regard they both offer something unique.
