I guess that will delay their F-16 release?    :lolsign:

I hope not, but it doesn't look good.

...what I'm more concerned about is what could happen to people that have DCS-ware on their machines if anything does actually come of this.  Which it most certainly could...

Sounds like typical America paranoia??   What are you worried about?   The FBI knocking on the door of every DCS user?   :harhar:

If those DCS User own classified documents of F-16, F-22 and F-35 and are in contact with a few people in countries that should not have them and is going to sell them or bring them aboard maybe you can get problems.. all others.. I don´t think so :D  But with US you never know… they think they rule the world and all others have to do what ever they want. But we learned to deal with it. No reason to be worried if you install DCS  :wacko: Or you get you alu foil hat right now  :DOH:  :harhar:

Yes, actually...for starters.  And it's not a matter of classified or not - it's a matter of export control (and a number of other regulations - both US and International), which is actually a very complicated subject and can vary from country to country.  I have a feeling this is going to go a bit farther down the rabbit hole than we'd think it might.

I don't think so.  First off people get more scared of export restriction laws than they need to be.  In my experience dealing with Night Vision and export restriction laws they tend to worry about companies following exporting rather than the end user.  For example an end user can easily export night vision through ebay or private sale etc without ever having to worry about it.  However, companies such as TNVC are closely monitored and would probably suffer a heavy fine if they ever exported without proper documentation and authorization.  I mean the same goes for all these F-16 parts I have at home.  Some guys flat out refuse to export outside of the USA due to export restriction laws where as others have no issue doing it.  I got a whole cockpit across the border with no issues.  I also have one supplier that refuses and ships them to a buddy of mine in ND and I drive down and bring them across the border myself and I declare them as F-16 aircraft parts and have zero issues doing so.  Again, I think its a matter of a company doing this rather than the end user.

In this matter, perhaps they are a little more concerned as he represents a software company and going to russia, who knows?? Either way in end all I am writing is I am not worrying about DCS or BMS or any of the aircraft manuals I have on my hard drive.  :beer2:

It actually depends very narrowly on the what, the whom (yeah - much more so in this case), and sometimes treaty...anyway, I just completed my annual training on the subject, so my hackles are probably up.  I think I'll keep them there.
