A few impressions and some ideas on Jets. The pit looks good but some additions are required for the radar:
radar vertical scan axis is needed so that we can adjust the radars vertical scan up and down to find tgts above you or below you. Also the radars range how do we increase the radars range from 16kms? Other handy features required one is data link allowing air and ground assets to be visible on the HSD but increase its range as a circle to show more.
So IRL scan is 160 miles approx and you would have 80, 40, 20, 10. Also for dogfighting a vertical scan mode is needed which features auto-lock and with IFF friendly aircraft could come up with a do not shoot X. When using AMRAAMS or R77 missiles the pilot has to hold lock until the missiles own radar goes active IRL for long distance shots so that would be nice to have.
Carrier take off is good but also remember the aircraft has a launch bar and that has to be lowered in order to hook up with the CAT and that would require a button. (you could leave it with the arcady space bar but ideally a launch bar is what adds more.)
