What Does An F-14 Tomcat RIO Do?

The team from DCSNZA hosted Dave “Bio” Baranek for a live streaming event earlier today.

Dave spend time talking about what the RIO (radar intercept officer) did in the F-14 (a great insight into that world) and then he took to the virtual skies with the DCSNZA team in the Heatblur F-14 Tomcat, tanked with an S3 Viking, engaged in a dogfight with some bad guys, and then landed back on the boat and spent time answering peoples questions!

This was a fun experience and a good view of what the RIO did and how important they were to the success of the Tomcat as a fighting unit.

If you’d like more information about Bio’s career in the US Navy, you can click here for more details. Also, check out his Topgun Days book here.

Enjoy

Note: If you want to start the live stream immediately, just jump to 9 minutes in and you can avoid the splash screen!

I’d also recommend going full screen for maximum enjoyment.

PS: If you’d like to fly the DCS Tomcat for FREE, check out Eagle Dynamics special offer to download and try any of their planes for 1 month for FREE. This is a fantastic opportunity to try this and all the other planes available in DCS! This ends 18th May so don’t dawdle…
