  1. NVGs are focused to optical infinity. They're pretty worthless for looking at instruments in your cockpit. Luckily your HUD is focused at infinity as well so you can see it clearly through your goggles. Too bad you can't look around them in VR, but the implementation of the NVGs as of now is way more realistic than it used to be. EDIT: Turn down the brighness on your HUD. The bluriness is from the HUD blooming out your goggles. Set it to green if it defaults to red; red light is incompatible with NVGs
  2. Hey Treasure, I would recommend checking out Chuck's guides. He always has sections dedicated to control mappings on the TMWH. He doesn't do guides for the FC3 planes, but I think you would find it helpful to map controls analogous to the Hornet or Viper for your Eagle. You may have to dig a little to find out what function does what (for instance, ACM mode boresight is TMS fwd on the Viper and Sensor Select Forward on the Hornet) but if you put a little thought and effort that'll make your eventual transition to a full DCS module that much easier. Good luck! And feel free to shoot me
  3. Don't use autothrottle. Get used to jockeying the controls. I consider myself to be pretty good at AAR and I'm constantly making micro-adjustments on stick and throttle as I maintain the refueling position. Don't fixate on your speed. Just fly form with the tanker. Honestly, one of the better ways to train is to turn off the HUD so you just have visual cues to work off of.

  5. Check your HOTAS commands. Verify your mapping for Mic switch Fwd/Aft/Down. Set up whatever keys/buttons you like, and then when you press them it should bring up the comm menu with the radio you selected. Forward is VHF, Down if UHF, and Aft is FM. Also, check the volume knobs on the radios themselves and make sure the volume is turned up. Hope this helps!
  6. I hadn't hear that before and I am genuinely curious. Do you have a source on this?
  7. You can also just click and drag it out of the screen.
  8. Here's a link to what I think is the best write-up of the Shark's autopilot and trim functions: http://www.simhq.com/_air13/air_426a.html Read up and enjoy. Until you find out how to cooperate with the autopilot you're actively working against it and flying the Shark will be a miserable time.
  9. DCS Installation Directory-> Mods->aircraft->F-16C->Doc Also, you'll find Chuck's Guide super handy! https://www.mudspike.com/chucks-guides-dcs-f-16c-viper/
  10. I may be wrong on this, but I think only the Super Hornets had the ability to carry buddy stores.
  11. Yeah just set up 8 JTACs all lasing with separate laser codes
  12. Refueling speed range for KC-130 is 220-250 KIAS
  13. Lol I would he's not taking off without getting good checks on the ailerons!
  14. Depends on what you're looking to do. A-10C can carry the most A2G ordnance, while the F-18, with double racks, can carry a crazy amount of AIM-9s and AIM-120s. Please note however that this is seldom the best way to fly. All those stores will impose significant drag and weight penalties. Sure it can be occasionally fun to load your plane up like a dumptruck in the Armageddon loadout, but IMO I think it's more fun to stay as fast/light/nimble as you can carrying just what you need to complete the mission.
