Is this realistic? Did the actual Viggen have speedbrakes? Also, why can it not reverse in the air? I thought you said something earlier about reversers being used to slow the aircraft on approach or something.

Sorry if I am wrong on any of the above.

My previous assumption:
  • I found a NASA document that showed reversers on jet fighter similar to the Viggens design were usable in air.
  • The speedbrakes were welded shut around 1987, I figured the reversers was the reason.

My new found knowledge:
  • Electrical diagram I found, showed that reversers could not be activated in air.
  • The speedbrakes were welded shut cause the plane was so good at bleeding speed anyhow.

In other words, its more realistic now.

On another note, will Semi Active Radar Homing and Doppler Effect be re-implemented for aircraft and SARH-type missiles (AIM-7, R-27R, etc...)? I miss being able to notch.

Are you going to adjust the F-15 and F-14 radar nasal to compensate.

nope, I really try to touch those as little as possible, they cannot be notched in any way.
