  1. It is still vitally important to practice jousting. Because there always will be times you cannot hide or take the "sneaky" route due to air defenses, EW/AWACS systems, or have been previously spotted. It will only become more important as missiles get their FMs fixed and the ranges (and thus kill ranges) extend. I dont need to be the person to tell you that in the modern environment there are not many places to hide and to boot if you are in enemy territory the ground is covered in air defense. You can only really ambush in your own airspace. But with everything there is a time and a place
  2. 2v2 works fine imho, especially with ECM. But as Bimbac said you should bring friends, as really nobody should be putting themselves in a 2:1 fight voluntarily. I must commend you for your bravery though.
  3. Ive found it turns really well around 800-1000kph, and this seems to match what I see in the E-M diagrams I find. I have never found an original E-M for the MiG though, so something could be wrong.
  4. No the 190 is not the most inferior plane. The P-51, Bf109, and Fw190 are all a matter of preference. The 190 is my mainstay ww2 fighter, it handles great in all axis and leaves heavy handed planes like the Bf109 and P51 in the dust when it comes to defensive maneuvering. This comes from amazing control harmony and breakneck roll rate. To boot, the Jumo motor in the 190 is the most easy to use, durable, and reliable motor of the three birds. It often will eat up .50 calls and continue on flying, taking insane rev changes, and temperature extremes. Talking about reliability, the flaps
  5. I may not be correct on the procedure. But I do believe you "box up" one target with the TDC until a cross appears over it. From there you select a second target in the same fashion. From that point there will be a "T1 LA T2" displayed on the HUD. When both T1 and T2 are displayed that means you have launch authority on both targets.
  6. Despite the nav panel not functioning. You can still navigate via HSI, HUD, and landmarks in conjunction with a (hopefully) good briefing. It is how I do it and its how I will continue to do it until they add in the NAV panel. Fly to any of the waypoints, remember the location of the waypoint by comparing briefing with landmarks and you now know which waypoint you are at. This is also assuming the waypoints were actually placed on top of good landmarks and not just over some random locale.
  7. Some info from "Overscans guide to Russian Avionics" http://aerospace.boopidoo.com/philez/Su-15TM%20PICTURES%20&%20DOCS/Overscan's%20guide%20to%20Russian%20Military%20Avionics.htm Ctrl+F and search L005 to find it. "SPS-171 / L005S /Sorbtsiya-S works in the H/I band and consists of two pods installed on the wingtips of the Su-27, an interface with the mission computer, and a control panel in the cockpit. Each pod has phased-array antennas fore and aft. The middle section of the Sorbtsiya houses the receivers, emitters, and
  8. Thank you for clarification! All information is needed.
  9. Other things to add. A couple photos of translated panels from the English cockpit on the Su-27. This brings up some interesting questions and shows some lacking features. Forward ECM Panel Rear ECM Panel Of course some of these translations are rough, and takes further interpretation. But here is what I can piece together from these. Of course take my interpretation with a grain of salt, as I am no ECM expert, Su-27 Expert, and im also again working through a translation. Forward Likely a manual override/manual use panel, as the rear panel is the only one that mentions any
  10. It would be nice if certain recon vehicles had similar equipment to the JTAC binocs but with much better optics, it is of course limited to vehicles that had such equipment. This might add more depth to the recce vehicles. I feel like other than the obvious things previously discussed. I also think that we need some more battlespace things. Things like comms systems, GCI-AWACS-SAM interaction with both players and other units, infantry unloading/loading from trucks/IFVs/APCs/Aircraft/Boats. Things that add depth and allow things to flow more naturally would make it a much better experience.
  11. Agreed, the only stipulation is that the MiG can only do such things close to base (due to payload and range). But that is okay because with base so close by, turnaround times at base are low and you can cycle in and out masses of MiGs in no time. All of this forms the "MiG Screen" that is constantly prodding at the enemy lines all the while providing security and superiority over friendly lines. All in all a very very strong strategy.
  12. I beg to differ. The MiG is a great superiority fighter within the limits of its range. I call it "Frontline Superiority" as it really can only operate around its base or the FLOT. From there it really cannot go as an escort unless enemies are expected behind lines. The MiG-29A is more poor in this respect with its lacking BVR armament and electronics, so I would say the MiG-29A is mostly a "Point Intercept Fighter" while the MiG-29S is a combination of that and "Frontline Superiority". But despite what I personally say, all MiGs do interception best. Flying off of co-ordinated networks
  13. It is supposed to get a cool datalink called "Lazur" (or something close to that, varies), it uses ground radar stations (perhaps AWACS? Ive heard conflicting things) to show the locations of enemies and control some parts of the Radar. I hope it comes in when the MiG is finished. If it does, it will make the MiG scary dangerous as a short range interceptor.
  14. MiG-31 or F-106 Both amazing interceptors for their era. The MiG-31 would be a great competitor to the F-14 in missile fights, and could datalink targets between eachother and other planes (IE Su-27). They would work like fast, armed AWACS aircraft. It also is multicrew. F-106 is another "Deltaceptor" from the 60s. Gets Nuclear Ordinance (Genie Rocket, shown below). Perhaps it gets a AWACS/GCI link, but I dont know much about the birds avionics.
