  1. As a RL pilot it sometimes pisses me off when the active is set for a 1 knot wind and it makes the taxi labouringly long! But in any controlled airport the active can't be changed. Best idea is change your wind direction. Wish I could do that in real life! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  2. The amount of ocean area now warrants proper usage. More expansion on combined arms would be nice too. If only you could control an infantry commander and be able to enter vehicles. That would be fun. We are a long way off from that mechanic I think Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  3. Ugra Media need a kick in the ass. A year later and not even a reply. They have made a lot of money selling this map and have literally put the one finger up to paying customers. ED should be putting pressure on them to repair this. Really pissed off as it's a decent map, however a big black texture is breaking immersion!!! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  4. During Op Agricola '99 after a standoff with the Russians we made friends! I'm first on left. We did swap some items for vodka [emoji1]! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  5. Think it is best they finish the paid playable stuff first. We have plenty of aircraft, we need more ground forces and assets to bomb! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  6. In my training I was warned of the old 737 in front, to give decent separation or the washing machine effect would happen. I have landed at commercial airports, but luckily have not experienced it! I would have thought at higher speeds and altitude it would be less of an effect. I cruise in RL between 90-130kts. In the sim surely at 300 plus it shouldn't effect it too much! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  7. The funny thing is I'm a RL pilot and own a light sports aircraft! Can I bloody get the basket!!!!? NO. An issue I'm having is when I'm close to the right distance to connect, what appears to be Wake Turbulence knocks me off. Is anyone else having the same issue? I prefer making my own missions. What way, Alt and speed is better to set the tanker up? Do you all use a racetrack or straight waypoints? What G/S do you set the tanker at? I'm loving the module, but when you need too many Ext Tanks, the weapon load is restricted! I need to nail the refueling to get the most out of it.
  8. I have RL Army experience but no in the air planning stuff. For a RL strike mission what is the correct layout of waypoints? Wp1 Ip Tgt Ep Ect ect. Cheers Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  9. Don't be ashamed of not getting this right lol! I'm a real life light aircraft owner and Pilot and I have issues with the deck landing! In real life I land in all sorts of STOL environments. All I can say is fly the plane until the brakes are on and engine is off. Use power to control your descent rate, as any irratic elevator or aileron input will put you off course in the final seconds of final. Remember to cage you velocity vector so that you get a good idea of your descent angle. Remember to throttle full power after touchdown to enable you to do a bolter if the landing is botched.
  10. Once had the chance to meet a US crew and get a tour, even sat in the gunner seat and moved the cannon around with the hmd! During operation Agricola Kosovan war 99 Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  11. Would love the addition of an apache! Pic of me during the Kosovan war of 99! Cool machines! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  12. DCS is my go to flight sim. I own and fly a light aircraft in RL and the feel in dcs is as close as it gets. Can we please have, 1. More infantry / civilian types. 2. More defensive positions to match map, ie both desert and temperate colours. 3. Better AI. Especially moving around on the ground. I have been hit a few times in the rear!! 4. I have asked before, can we have the option of including a PDF mission briefing. The current system is not fit for purpose re viewing images or maps. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  13. Hind back in Pristina Airfield, Kosovo 99! Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  14. Where I got my love of military vehicles. I was a mere 21 years young and deployed to the Kosovan conflict of 1999. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
  15. Guys there are so many unanswered questions on the forum, especially regarding the Channel and Normandy Maps. What's going on? Can someone please review and drop us at least one line answers??? Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
