  1. UV-57 RV-5 Radar Altimeter shows same above ground height regardless of the aircraft bank angle.
  2. We would need somthing like the JTAC radio menu for A-10C. That enables signing im, and two way communication.
  3. Hi, Any plans for GCI implementation in the future? I mean proper GCI not the AWACS BRA clone thet ground EWR-s have now, but GCI as a comanding function with features like: - Comanding the interceptor on an intercept course calculated from target's and interceptors position, velocity and vector. - Assigning different interceptor groups for different targets. GCI group could be assigned with several interceptor groups they can launch or redirect - Ability to handle target clusters "formations" not just individual targets. - Separate phases of intercept: Launching Closing (
  4. Once you stop on ground which is not ship, FARP, runway or object the langing gear get stuck in "mud" and you cannot roll even if you have 100% trust. Of course you can VTOL, but you can't taxi on ground. This behaviour is familiar with airplanes, but helicopters like Mi-8 or Ka-50 can taxi on ground anywhere. This shall be applied to the AV-8B as well because you can select to take of from ground anywhere on the map. Imagine to be deployed on an improvised airstrip on the ground and you want to taxi out to a near road to perform STOL because you are to heavy for VTOL. You can't do this
  5. 9-Line is already implemented by default and works great with the default JTAC system provided by DCS since A-10C came out years ago. Also it has full audio support and great interaction with JTAC. It will take a lot of time to recreate that in a mission script and by the end of the day you will got the same results. So it is easier to define JTACs in the mission editor it self, they will see the same targets as our script does because this script uses the built in detection mechanism. MGRS input can only be used by A-10C at the moment (not sure is Gazelle can do that...) while LAT LONG is
  6. Please keep in mind all you see is work in progress. Current SEAD task aims only to use of anti radiation missiles to destroy your targets. In the future it will evolve with some more features against IR SAM and AAA-s Threat level also in the proof of concept stage. There are lot of scales you can measure threat of a hostile unit or activity, initially threat to airplanes and helicopter was chosen to be present at the alpha. As HQ logic will evolve threat level might considered in different ways as well.
  7. Lovely, nice adition to Coop missions as well. This will save me a lot of time with balancing. What I really like about your work that it is well documented and easy to get the hang of it with minimal knowledge to programing. Well done!
  8. How do you hand over the controls to the back/front seat? I try to find relevant control group but without luck yet.
  9. Totally agree, Pakistan used F-86F-s against India mainly in ground attack role. And a drawing: Also South Africa equiped thme with french weapons:
  10. I think I can give this one a shot, I used to make quite a few Su-25A skins a year or two ago, not to mention the template for the old model with cooperation of Star80. You can check out Jack's and mine earlier works here: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=54865 Also I need some things: - Color definition for grey, green, and sky colors. - Squardon logos who used this F-5 pattern or the grey-green F-104, decal, possible nosearts, and more photos possibly form all sides of these F-5s of grey-green F-104. - The tiny text decals will remain russian at first, if someone could hel
  11. Does canada have some kind of ground attack camo from post war, like on F-5s or something? Or even attack heli pattern?
  12. Actually you can set these needles to anywhere you want in the real Su-25. One common use is to set these needles to match waypoint speed. Mostly because waypoint flying in ground attack planes requires to TAS and not IAS. As you can set the needles in the around the IAS ring (and do the math before take off) it is easy to check if you're going with the required speed in the predefined altitude. The needles are colored for a reason, so you can easily remember what you set on them. Also you can set it to any desired speed like, economy cruise, max combat speed (depend on you loadout)
  13. Hi, I'm new to Mist but used to play around a lot with SL Mod, form my taste it was more noob freindly. I would like to start it out easy but I think I cannot understand properly the guide: " mist.msgMGRS string mist.msgMGRS (table vars) vars has the following recognized fields (required entries in blue, optional in green): { units = table UnitNameTable, acc = number accuracy, displayTime = number displayTime, msgFor = table recipients, text = string text, }" This is what I would like to use first. I tried to substitute values to my needs and came out with this one in a do
  14. Well the answer to that question is searched among Su-25A pilot like the Holly Grail. The good news is that there are many good ways to hunt IR Sams down, the bad news is that you have to know what are you facing. In order to kill them with as ease as possible you have to master the knowledge about them and keep your knowledge updated. Some tricks might not work after patches... but there is some similarities that might help, which aplies for all of them. If you can exploit these "weaknesses" you can easily get into kill range with any of them relatively fast. Good to know facts: - IR mi
