As the Thunder starts making its mark around the world, and first world airforces start training to go up against it, how do you think professional pilots will communicate? JF-17 at your 3'o clock? Thunder at your 3'o clock? Jeff, 3'o clock? Jeff rolls off the tongue most easily. Many of those DCS dudes have linkages with professionals. Atleast, they share the same Western mindset with their professional brethren.Jeff is some DCS pronunciation issue for JF. It is JF-17 Thunder, JF-17, Thunder or Fierce Dragon.
Believe me, if there was even a hint of ridicule or disrespect in Jeff, I would be on to it. But Jeff is a frank, informal name and shows a guarded respect. Many of these DCS dudes were trolling the Thunder when it was first revealed circa 2004. Words such as "If we don't give them avionics they can't fly it" or "You have the plane, we have the missiles". It has been an eye opener for these people, and as the Thunder keeps making its mark its going to be an eye opener for many professionals as well. You should look forward to hearing more about Jeff. Your one man war may drive away enthusiasts who would otherwise be willing to engage in fruitful discussion.
