  1. Didn't they do that with a C-130? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. As title says, they're not hitting their targets. The Sparrows don't even come close to hitting their targets. For the last couple of weeks I've noticed a serious drop in hit percentage of both missiles. I launch the Phoenix well within range as shown on the screen below the HUD, and I keep my nose pointed at the targets till they either go active or reach their estimated TTI after going active. I don't have a track though. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. Discussion is fine, no problem with that at all. And obviously we all want to get better at flying this game. But since it's something we do for fun in our spare time, we can do without the BS in my opinion. This isn't the Navy, or the Iranian Air Force, so no need for someone to get all "you should be able to do everything with the current HUD" and "why can't you fly just instruments" just because someone asks a simple question. I'd like to get the HUD, because it was a part of Tomcat history. And I'd love to have the opportunity to try it out. I would like the D model too. So next we'll get yelled at because we should be able to fly without the D's improved fly by wire system I guess [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. Well, I'm just asking Heatblur "hey, can you get us this version" and what follows are 37 comments on how many of each version of this plane were made, how to fly instruments, and so on lol. Just wanted to know if it was possible [emoji849] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. Well, as the OP, I just thought a version with the Sparrowhawk HUD would be cool so we could have another version of our favorite plane. Nothing to do with better or worse. Or needing it. I can do just fine with the current HUD. Sure, 68 or so planes got the HUD, we're also getting the Iran version which had 79 units delivered. That's ok? 79 is fine, but 68 is too few? Funny that. And it's ok to go from the superior B to the inferior A but we can't get an upgraded B? I was just curious if Heatblur could do it, and if they could, if they'd consider it since we're getting other versions. I'd happily pay an "upgrade fee" like we did for the A-10 tank killer.

  6. Thank you all! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. I'm not using anything from the Warthog stick. I'm leaving that as a sidestick for whenever I fly the Viper. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I'm flying the Tomcat 80% or more of the time in DCS, with a Warthog HOTAS in a sidestick configuration. I want to buy a dedicated F-14 grip, extension, and base to mount in the center. Which do you use/recommend? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. This article reads of several B equipped squadrons from Oceana with Sparrowhawk HUD's. Since we're getting 3 different versions of the A model, I hope you will at least consider giving us a second B version with this HUD.

  10. You're putting it in bomb mode Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Within visual range menu, drop tanks Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. You fly with 68 degree wing sweep because Meg Ryan is watching. Then during the overhead break you sweep forward, because it looks cool, and you extend the airbrake because you don't want to keep her waiting when you touch down [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. Stop using the mouse, and use the hand controllers. Real planes don't have a mouse. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. Had a bunch of guns only fights on Friday, she's flying great. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. "Ooooh Candy" Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  16. Tomcat has 2 excellent campaigns included with the module, as well as more coming, and it's one of, if not the best module available. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  17. Awesome thank you! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  18. I'm loving the campaign so far, excellent job. Is there a way to make the AI wingman a human? Maybe the other campaigns you guys have planned could be set up for single and multi player? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  19. The Tomcat. Easy to fly, hard to fly well. She will keep you on your toes. In the 16 you're a systems manager. In the 14 you're an aviator. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  20. It's a game. You can fly whatever you want, whenever you want. The "brakes" could temporarily stop working if you taxi with anti skid on. Make sure it's off on the boat. Easy way to check if your brakes are set up right is to look at your pedals and push them in and see if they move. You might need to invert them in the settings. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  21. You don't need mods. Just run through the startup a few times and you'll remember it. Oxygen, arm seat, talk to ground crew and Jester, right engine, left engine, talk to Jester when he's ready to set INS, radio, lighting, gauges, and that's really it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  22. Ah I didn't get that. I flew out further than 7nm though, I was watching the tacan gauge to make sure. Thank you. And Merry Christmas Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  23. I'm doing mission 1, the carrier quals, but I must be missing something I'm not doing right. I take off, do the first trap with full radios, call inbound, see you at 10, wait for my turn, tomcat ball, land, get grade, take off, do 2 more traps without any radio, park in front of the island, but when I end mission it resets to mission 1. Do you get a notification when you passed it? I don't know what I'm missing. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. Just fly towards the ground or a mountain really fast. He'll puss out and eject lol. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  25. While the focus was the helicopter on the screen, I can't help but think this was a sneaky way to tease the SU-34 lol. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
