  1. Supercarrier was a bit of a disappointment for me. It looks good, but it wasn't something I had to have. When I drive past an airbase I don't normally see people on foot or on tow-motors. Most aircraft work is done in the hangar. Airfield assets are fine of course, but we can't simulate everything. US doctrine requires air-superiority followed by ubiquitous amounts of artillery and CAS. Better ground vehicles can bring the Air-Land battle to life. If Redfor loses the fighter-sweep then yes, A10s and Apaches will go on a killing-spree. But then there will be a breakout. And the abi
  2. If you are a fan of the jet go for it. It's only $25. Are you going to wait til it drops to $12.50? Bought it yesterday. Not difficult to fly, but hard to shoot bandits. The artwork is exceptional. The models are gorgeous and the pilots look real.
  3. I believe this is Retreating Blade Stall. There are only 2 types of stall, right? Vortex Ring State and RBS. I never get VRS because I never descend more than 2m/s. Wiki says the KA50 can get RBS because its engines are powerful enough to create sufficient vortices. And RBS can be caused by sudden changes in airpeed and direction. Sometimes when targets get too close I fly away at high speed. Then I do a sharp 180 turn and reacquire targets while simultaneously bleeding lots of airspeed. When I try to hover both manual and auto the aircraft spins like a top counter-clockwise. No
  4. The FC3 F15 is a dominant fighter and a joy to fly. Of course I want a FF version. Was not aware of that campaign, thanks for mentioning it. I have not flown AG in the Eagle also. I suppose it is a little like the A10A and F4E without missiles. We have Warbirds, Korea jets, post 9/11 jets. Eventually, they are going to cover the Cold War. As the backbone of the USAF for 20 years, the F15C has to be included. I also want something assymetrical to oppose it, Flogger, Foxbat, Fulcrum-A. But I prefer Belsimtek to make red jets, I'm not sure 3rd parties can pull them off.
  5. Let's talk gunships. The game is not broken. It's not borked. Last night I flew a mission. After 5 minutes, an Apache shot me down. I flew another sortie and changed tactics. A huge melee was taking place between 6 Apaches and 3 Hinds, red and blue armor, and 2 red mobile SAMs. Using terrain as cover, I engaged the closest Apache at 2.7nm. My first missile missed but the second scored. https://youtu.be/9c57Mw_hcQ4 I lost all SA engaging the Apache, so I quickly egressed to safety. After taking a deep breath I realized 4 Apaches had been killed and 2 were RTB with damage.
  6. The automatic lateral slewing Volk is referring to helps the gunner acquire moving vehicles but yes it moves sometimes when you don't want it to. The vertical movement you are referring to is a representation of the real system I believe and not a DCS bug. Sometimes you will get a bad lase. And sometimes the reticle will move closer/lower to the new range. And sometimes, like you say, the sytem will accidentally lase a very close object and lock on to it. Even more weird, the system will sometimes lose stabilization and the shkval will completely drop down to range zero and you will get a
  7. C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries There is a KA52 folder next to KA50. Why is it there? Are they going to give us an AI Alligator? Or will they let us fly it? The Apache will probably come first. So yes, a KA52 will be a long way off.
  8. Watched this video Saturday afternoon. Much appreciated. Your flying skills are absurdly high. Very professional. Do you fly the Liberation Campaign Engine? Can you record a combat mission from start to finish?
  9. If you are flying Create Fast Mission Nalchik is neutral and the warehouse contains no stores. Therefore you can't rearm refuel. If you are too far away when you ask permission to land they will ignore you. Try to get closer. To make sure the radio works ask Nalchik for a navigation vector. I just bought Ka50. This is an incredible module.
  10. Sorry to reply 2 months later. Use notepad++. Add "RUS" to the last line.
  11. NATO missiles are designed to defeat NATO flares. Russian missiles are designed to defeat Russian flares. Really interesting comments.
  12. I love this post. We need new FC4 planes: Su30, Su35, Su24, Su34. Or, we need FF cold war Red jets: Phantom, Flogger, Foxbat, Fitter. Who is calling the shots at ED? What is the vision for the future? Currently we have Blue v Blue Red Flag scenarios over a Georgia/Russia map. There is nothing wrong with that if that's what consumers want. My only disagreement is that the Hornet is a smashing success. Not finished but a wonderful product. Have not bought the Viper yet but I have been impressed by seeing it in MP and videos. It will be a success eventually.
  13. I hear you. My personal DCS dream is FF Phantom, Flogger, Foxbat, and FRG/DDR map. But we also have to realize half or most DCS players were born after 1991. AC built in the 1970's can't shoot Fox-Threes and can't turn and burn like newer jets. For me, Cold War jets over Europe would be competitive and exciting. But for a younger audience, this might not be appealing.
  14. I am totally opposed to this idea. I hope there is a poll for this so I can vote against it. The amount of feature requests on this forum is sometimes overwhelming. ED is small, luckily most requests get ignored. Rearm/Refuel takes 2 minutes. In real life it takes 20. We already have a huge cheat. When I start a mission my Hornet is refueled, rearmed, and repainted faster than I can set up my cockpit. I was playing alone on a server 3 nights ago and a Viper joined red side. He took off from Sochi and zoomed to 30K in seconds. He launched on me at 30nm and I saw the vapor trail fr
