I played through the first mission, very good! I learned a few new things especially regarding the startup order rather than just doing things as I think of them . I also enjoyed the style of radio chatter both with the wingman and ATC. I spotted a couple of bugs which have probably already been mentioned, namely the speedbrakes not stopping during the emergency retract test (which I understand is an ED issue), I've never noticed that before since I've never gone near that switch before, the black and yellow warning stripes scare me too much . There was also some confusion over the radio frequencies which I think has been mentioned already.
An excellent mission and I look forward to the rest of it!

P.S. this is also the first time I've gone near the transponder/IFF, since I know it is non-functional in DCS. Does anyone happen to know if there are plans to make it functional? I know ED are planning a big update to ATC...

Thanks, working on M5 nw: ILS / TACAN and air to air refuelling. Getting some tips and parts of the script written by an actual KC-135 boom operator! Also simultaneously doing stuff for M7 - weapons employment basics.

Sounds fun but I hope it's like the mission on the m2000 where we have the option to say we refueled but didn't..I'm absolutely horrible at air to air refueling.

sze5003, keep trying on the aar, it's worth the struggle. once you "get it", you are gtg!

Have u tried some throttle/joy curves to make flying a little more smooth?

Someone has a aar mission that you spawn right behind the tanker and can practice as much as needed.

Nice I will look for that mission. I do need more practice in aar. I only ever did it once and that was in an f22, long long time ago.

On that topic, though slightly off topic for this thread - I am thinking about doing AAR mandatory part of almost each sorrtie for Harrier campaign - after all, if loaded with weapons they wouldn't have much fuel. Hm, might even post a poll elsewhere!

Oh the dread and horror of thinking that I have to AA refuel in each mission. Sweat and blood on Hotas...

This could probably be the hardest campaign ever.

For those unable / unwilling to learn (I still am really bad at AAR) there is always an option of unlimited fuel

Oh no, no cheating, either I do it or die trying. It's just so damn hard.

I wonder if it is "easier" in VR.
