DCS - P-51D Mustang's Astounding Trailer

Even if you don't like flight simulations, you should probably watch this. Some trailers give me a migraine, some tickle my curiosity box and many have very little impact on me at all. I press play, I sit back, I watch and then I wonder why it was quite so noisy or why it adds nothing to, or seemingly contradicts, what I already knew about the game it purports to advertise. Since I probably couldn't even manage to turn the ignition key and check the mirrors in DCS: P-51D Mustang's intricately simulated WW2 fighter, I'm pleased I can at least enjoy looking at the game. This is one of the most beautiful promotional videos I've seen for a long time.

I just watched it again, in between writing 'a long time' and writing this.

I just watched it again then as well, after writing 'writing this' and I'll probably watch it again after writing this.

I did! Problem is, no matter how many times I watch it I don't know what to tell you about the actual game except that it's apparently going to be the most dramatic and gorgeous warplanefighter ever. Maybe I'll just copy and paste some information here and then direct you to the website to learn more?

The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and maneuverability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII and proved to be what many consider the most successful fighter in history.

The DCS: P-51D Mustang offers both highly-detailed simulation and easy-to-play "game" mode options for both hardcore and casual gamers. When in simulation mode, this is the most authentic simulation of the P-51D Mustang that has ever been done for the PC. Enjoy both the thrill of flying this warbird and operating its various weapons against a variety of ground and airborne targets.

It's compatible with the previous DCS sims, meaning you can throw a Mustang at a Warthog, watch them fly out of their warbirdballs, and see which one triumphs.

I just watched it again.
