    Hello All,

    My name is David, aka Stryker. I've been a flight simmer since the first sims on AppleII, C64, and IBMPC-XT days. Wow, I can hardly believe the difference a few decades makes. After a break on the flight-stick of a few years with life and what-not, I recently (in the last few months) found DCS and fell in love with simming all over again. Beefed up my computer and got Triple-4K screens, and beast of a NVIDIA 1080ti GPU to spray pixels to the screens, and of course stick&throttle, rudder-pedals, track-ir. I have been having a blast doing qualifications with Maple-Flag missions A-10C qualification missions! Looking forward to F-18 and other DCS mods! I am looking to expand into more multiplayer scenarios and am interested in joining up here at 476vFG. You guys are very impressive in terms of quality of work (such as videos and mods), and subject matter knowledge and content, and even podcasts. Haha and I listened to the entire 3 hour podcast with retired A-10 pilot which every minute was great stuff. Just awesome! <Hat-tip to the community here>

    I realize that I am arriving presently when recruiting is apparently halted, however, I would like to join and participate with what is obviously a great bunch of folks. I have a few details about me in my profile if interested.

    Cheers guys,
    -Stryker

    PS, and if by some fluke you do have a need/desire to add a new recruit despite the status, I am definitely interested asap.

    Welcome Stryker! Our recruiting is currently on hold as you mentioned but in the mean time there are a lot of documents in the public section you can read and begin to gain an understanding of how we operate the aircraft in the sim environment. I may be a little biased but I think we do have the best group of enthusiasts in the DCS community. Keep in touch on the forums and keep watching for the open status on our recruitment section.

    Hello Stryker, drop by and say hello on discord. We may not be recruiting at the moment but it's definitely worth waiting for.

    As one of the newest of newbies here, I'll offer a big +1 on what the others have said.

    Being involved early and often is a plus!

    Welcome!
