    started a topic R-60 (not M) for Su-25, MiG-29

    R-60 (not M) for Su-25, MiG-29

    Simple one here. Now that the R-60 has been corrected to rear-aspect only, it would be nice if the Su-25 and MiG-29 were capable of carrying it as well as the limited all-aspect 60M. This would be a huge benefit to servers running rear-aspect only weapons restrictions as it simplifies logistics and...

    Maybe we should lobby ED to patch the Su-25/25T and MiG-29 to be able to carry the original R-60... I like the rear aspect restriction, it makes combat a little more intense.

    The problem is that if you miss the 14, it will dominate you with both power and sustained turn performance. I would rather gunfight an F-5 any day of the week, they're relatively easy prey and once you figure out the ballistics on the GSh-23 it's not too bad. At best they can roll and jink around,...

  • The glass type had to be changed to ED's glass material - the MiG-19 uses it too and has the same problem.

    Make sure you don't have it bound to something on your HOTAS, it might be resetting to 'open' if it's bound and the switch is set to the wrong positon. That's all I can think of, I've never had it unlock or blow off except when I know I've forgotten to lock it.

    Not quite what I was getting at - people ask for the 27T now and then because of the "IRST stealth" meme. In reality (well, in DCS too) they're not really intended for that and unless your target is totally unaware, which a Jester-crewed F-14 won't be, they're easily defeated. At that point...

    Six, not seven. Two on the glove pylons, four under the tunnel... still a decent amount but to be honest they're not invincible. R-27T is not really all that great - they're easily spoofed by flares, Jester will see the launch even if he shouldn't because of the limitations of the AI, and rolling IRST-only...

    replied to How to dogfight in the MiG-19P?
    Player F-5s are in a world of hurt against a carefully-flown 19. They need to either hope for a missile shot (many F-5 pilots fire far too close, and I suspect most don't realise they can uncage the seekers either - I often deliberately bait missiles knowing they're too close to make the turn) or find...

  • New cockpit frame mesh (enormously better forwards vis, easier to use periscope without moving your head so much), cockpit rescaled to fit external model (no more holes, feels much larger in VR I'm told), new cockpit lighting (fully 3D, from individual light sources rather than backlit-style selfillum...

    I had a lot of trouble at first, I just had to adjust to not having the 21's insane instantaneous turn/low speed handling, and be more patient with trying to get shots. You can't force them very well in the 19.

    replied to Wheels dig into tarmac when taxiing
    The real question is why would you want to do a mil power takeoff?

    The tyres are definitely clipping the ground/deflating - you can usually hear the rim scrape when the suspension bottoms out. Even clean, it's fairly easy to scrape in a turn, but with a moderately loaded aircraft it's...

    replied to How to dogfight in the MiG-19P?
    At low alt and holding rates it is pretty much untouchable to F-5s, unless they're very smart. At medium to high altitude the difference is even more marked. The MiG-19 really likes being up high, and it climbs like a thing possessed, but usually F-5 players are aware of their issues with altitude and...

    No, the Mirage and F-16 both suffer from it frequently as well. The F-5 doesn't seem to model any overstress damage at all (boy, things would be interesting if it did) and so it can happily tolerate spikes past 15G....

  • Tomcats getting close isn't the blessing it might sound like. A few days ago, three of us in MiGs smacked a pair of Tomcats that failed to disengage when their Sparrows missed... unless flown by exceptional pilots, the 14s are liable to get eaten alive by 15s, 16s, and 18s in close combat, especially...

    DCS wake turbulence is badly exaggerated, and is capable of over-Ging aircraft so badly that they suffer structural failure. If it had been implemented realistically I would agree, but what we have right now isn't very realistic.

    With that said, it's not as much of an issue here as it is...

  • Some observations from red (before we ran out of planes and I ran out of patience with DCS freezing on me) - with 20+ players all on comms, we really need multiple GCIs on separate channels to avoid comms overload. It was hard picking out my own calls and no doubt difficult for GCI to keep track of...

    I had the same problem for a long time. Don't pull like you would in a 21. Try and hold as close to 800km/h as possible, at that speed it becomes an absolute rate monster and is almost untouchable to F-5s. It's also currently affected too much by higher AoA (acknowledged and hopefully remedied soon),...

    The problem with weapon restriction scripts is that they're enforced by blowing people up, and a lot of people don't read briefings OR the ingame messages and wonder why they're blowing up, then leave. With a core group of players like BF or DDCS have, it's easier to do, but even though we do have a...

  • How long does the mission typically last? I might be between 30-60 mins late since my ArmA group are running an event just before, but hopefully there'll still be stuff left to do
