Default NTTR map info by the 476.

I've been working on a Google Earth plugin containing lots of data for the NTTR.
In this, you'll find the base grid, different airspaces, targets, threat emitters, tanker and HVA orbits, navaids, navigation points,..... and lotd more.

To get access to this data, you'll need Google Earth.
I've build everything into a network based Google Earth plugin. This allows you to point your Google Earth to a central managed file, ensuring you will always have the latest version.

To get access to the data, all you have to do is to add a network link in Google Earth.
The URL you need to point it to is: https://goo.gl/f7phhc


After doing so, a new folder with a bunch of layers will be present in your "My Places".
After adding it the first time, all layers will be selected, making the overview way to cluttered.
After closing and opening Google Earth again, it should automatic trim down the selected layers.

To manually trim the view down, you can set initial selections as shown below.


The view will be something like this after that selection.


Nothing holds you to select/unselect layers and/or items to make the view like you want it for mission planning or creating mission briefing materials.

The other cool thing about using Google Earth for this, is the fact that we can add other overlays that are available on the internet.

What I found to be very to extremely useful are following:
The URLs are what you enter in the network link.

Earth Point Topographical Maps: http://www.earthpoint.us/Default.ash...kaXwRGx6W9f3g&

MGRS GridLines by Nearby.org.uk: http://www.nearby.org.uk/google/grid_mgrs.kmz.php?

Chartbundle Aviation Charts
Sectional Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/sec.kml

World Aeronautical Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/wac.kml

Terminal Area Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/tac.kml

IFR Enroute Low Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/enrl.kml

IFR Enroute High Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/enrh.kml

IFR Area Charts: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/enra.kml

CONUS SAR Grids: http://www.chartbundle.com/charts/kml/grids.kml

So after playing a bit with what you (don't) want to see, your view could be this:



A mission is in the works to reflect this entire setup.
Most (if not all) will be in there. That includes the exact target setups like they are in the NTTR for real.
Still working on it, and given the fact the 2.0 is still in open Alpha, it might take me still a bit to finish. (Once DCS is more stable, I might release an intermediate version)

Here's some WIP screenshots from the editor:
