The Dyess Air Force Base is one that tends to bring a lot of interesting glances given its location. Based a mere 11km from Abilene, Texas, this AFB has been a hugely popular location to visit for both pilots and aviation fans alike.
This is the host unit for the 7th Bomb Wing division, which is one of just two B-1B Lancer bomber wings in the United States Air Force.
The base itself has been running since 1942 and in that time it has seen a major change to the way that it looks, which given its importance to the local area (the AFB brings in around $310m to the local community per annum) is not a surprise.
Not only does this mod then take after this level of importance and make it feel like a major player in the local community, but it’s taken the realism included in this mod to a whole new level.
It now has the right representation, as Team SDB have gone to extra lengths to put this AFB together and make sure it feels as realistic as it can within the limitations set.
In this base, you get access to the following changes and improvements;
A group of AI aircraft making their way around the AFB, making it feel more alive and populated than ever before. However, the aircraft (B-1B, KC-135R and C-21A) that jet around the airport are NOT controllable by you and they might also pose some graphical conflicts with regards to machines which are using DX10 Preview mode.
Departing and arriving AI traffic, though, are a major element of the airport and this adds some much needed life and reality to the place. This feels better than ever, and ensures that you can enjoy a comfortable and fun flight.
Operational night lighting is a major bonus, as well, as it gives you all the help that you need to understand and appreciate how hard it is to fly here at night. The rural nature of the land makes it hard to spot where you are going, so the night lighting should help you land here with much greater ease than in the past.
All of the hangers and support buildings have been changed and improved almost beyond recognition, as well. This makes it easier to know where you are and what buildings are what as in the pas the whole AFB felt a little bit generic in the way that it typically looks.
