  1. Just for clarification, are you asking what happens if you slew the TDC over the DDI labels for bar, azimuth and radar mode and press it while in TWS? (I dont know the answer, just wondering if that is the question)
  2. He didn't said that planing link and trailing link are the same thing. He didn't contradicted anything Mover said. He just acknowledged a fact which corroborates Mover experience, which is that trailing link landing gear makes for a smoother landing due to its geometry. Keep the finger off the trigger mate. Also I didn't realized you were the designated carrier of Mover credentials. I absolutely respect real-world pilots participating in DCS, but I don't think putting them on pedestals would foster a healthy culture in these forums, since at the end of the day they're as human as
  3. That's the issue, "by a rocket". There are different types of rockets, and there are different amounts and configurations of explosives in said types. The correct assumption should be that there is an appropriate ammunition for a certain type of target. For example, in a HEAT warhead, a key factor to its penetrating ability is the diameter of the shaped charge. All modern anti-tank missiles (Hellfire, Vikhr, TOW, Javelin, Brimstone) have a diameter of 130mm (Vikhr) to 180mm (Hellfire, Brimstone) and carry a similarly weight charge (about 10kg) to be able to punch through 800-1200mm of RHA e
  4. Wait WHAT? How the hell could you be identifying a tractor in that image? And that's why one of the rules of product development is: Listen to your customers, but don't listen too much (or too literally). Otherwise your product will end up absorbing all the crap that uninformed people loves to spew about things they don't have a clue about.
  5. Its out of production for a long time though.
  6. In any case it seems that ED decided to go through the route of not letting SAM generate a lock indication on adversary radar, per Wags comment on youtube:
  7. Do not act like you are some kind of spokersperson for the entire community. I am an ED customer for 10+ years now, and I don't see what the fuss is about (maybe because I used to flight simming in the era of VGA resolution and 9600 baud modems). There are always fanbois and critics, but then there is a silent majority who pays silently and enjoys it in their private time. I know a couple of people like that. Me myself I extracted immense enjoyment of every dollar I spent on ED products (compared to eh... Battlefield games? I have some regrets there...). Be sure that if the fundamenta
  8. These guys did a great job making public something they wouldn't have to as it was originally for internal consumption within their own group, with the intention of helping newbies coming to DCS who have no idea the very basic concepts of intercepts and BVR combat. How about instead of just criticizing (which is fair), offer your own contributions on how to approach A2A combat in multiplayer so we could retain more new players and keep growing our entire community?
  9. Not taking away from the effort to put it into video format, but can you guys acknowledge and credit the source of this, which is the P-825 course available at the CNATRA website?
  10. Pretty sure these are threat circles (the A standing for AAA), so nothing new here.
  11. And it has a clickable cockpit? Awesome job dudes! Perfect for some "CIA-style" missions :thumbup:
  12. Meanwhile, you could follow some simple rules: - If there are no long-range SAM threats, fly as high as possible to conserve fuel while maintaining adequate forward speed. I use Mach 0.75 as a ballpark cruise speed. The heavier and draggier you are, the lower you must fly to maintain this speed. Also consider that above 30k ASL you are immune to most short-range SAMs, including Strelas, TORs and Rolands. - If there are airborne threats you want to hide from visually (especially online with human opponents) fly below or above contrail altitude. This means flying either under 24k feet or a
  13. I know where does that info comes from given that I fly that simulation since the first versions released in the 2000s. However that simulation cannot be used as a reference for DCS due to various reasons. You did an interpretation yourself when you said "should not trigger". However the text you referenced uses the expression "reduced chance of being detected or considered a threat - especially when compared to STT". Reduced is not zero. ED so far has chosen to model as a 0% reduction, so it always trigger the RWR, and I cannot argue that they are wrong in ths regard.
  14. This is a two-part bug. The first part is more straightforward. The elevation range displayed besides the cursor in the radar display in 1 bar does not match the actual coverage. It always displays the same value for min / max, as if at 1 bar the radar only covers 1000 feet or less at any distance, when in fact you can detect contacts outside of its number as the first attached track shows. Also, even at 1 bar the altitude covered by the radar increases the farther it is from the aircraft, contrary to what happens currently in the F-18 display. This bug only occurs with 1 bar; in 2, 4 and 6
