ahhh ok, gotcha!

I've been reading that midlife upgrade post. Pretty interesting stuff. I'm curious how that'll turn out.

Well guys, I got the M2000... Lot of learnig curve, it's neither like the russian or the us planes...

I did some of the training and there were bugs (like the a2a combat would not go further after I dropped fuel tank and switched off a2a limiter) and no take off mission to show me when to rotate etc.

also the training missions are made with french cockpit in mind when I had already switched to english.

I will go over chuck's guide tomorrow see if that helps. plane is very agile though. reminds me of a high tech F5 with more power.

I like the M2k too. It is very pleasant to fly. I like the navigation system a lot. You will surely have your joy with the Mirage.
I was fascinated by the Mig-21 for quite a long time, until I got to know the Mirage.
For me, that was the purchase argument, navigation device with which waypoints can be flown, LGB's and air refuelling.
I also like the engine sound of the Mirage.
I'm also eagerly awaiting the new changes that will take place.

Let us not forget the most important bit of flying the M-2000: Pretending to be these guys!





Actually a really fun flying movie, very... French lol. Some really stunning camera work too, apparently they modified one of the M2000 droptanks to have a camera facing backwards, forwards and sideways I think. Of course the storyline is complete nonsense but it’s good fun . Perfect double-bill with Top Gun.

Dassault did modified a 2000L wing tank for the movie.
It was fitted to a twin seat Mirage 2000B, the camera guy was in the back seat.
Two of the pilots participating in the movie (there were many more) were Rallet and Prats, the two last solo display pilots.
And guys, the Mirage 2000 solo display was really awesome.

You can see the pod and footage from the Mirage 2000B back seat in this video.


Yes, the movie story was bit cheesy, but the aerial footage are second to none.

That was cool to watch!

So I flew enough today to make sense of few systems to get me in an online server...

Well, My tactics blow because F15s kept having me for lunch. They would shoot pair of 120Cs at me, and I kept getting my ass whooped. They were doing it with a soft lock as well (never fly red usually, so I don't know how they act when you're the one eating them) cuz I wouldn't know a missile was coming until it went pitbull on me.

I feel bad for our real life enemies who have to face a 120C (or the newer 120D)... lol

I couldn't even get close enough to take the shot. It will be interesting with the F14 where there will be no 120 either... I probably need to change my skills and fly low with radar aimed up instead of at 25K looking for stuff to blow up lol.

That being said, i added the eclair and programmed the panic buttons for CMs... I had it on auto and man, but could not get them to dispense... in the instant action, as long as it was on, I was able to dispense... what gives?

and does the PCM for the jammer work?

AUTO decoy dispense doesn't work.

Put the PCM knob in the middle position and the HOTAS command will toggle jammer transmission.

Being Fox 1 shooter, you are at disadvantage VS Fox 3 shooter.
Better not fly alone, try to engage 2 Vs 1 in your favor.

You can train to escape AIM-120 against AI in solo flight.

To try to make F-15 life more difficult, once you spot F-15, keep at least M0.9, by 25Nm put the Eagle offset by 50°.
You can reverse from left to right to approach in S.
If you're flying offset by 50° and you detect the "M" of the AIM-120 on RWR, it will be leading ahead of you.
So reverse in full AB, you may need to reverse a second time.
It will work better diving.

Practice the timing in solo.
The closer you are, the more frequently you need to reverse the turns. And you need to keep you energy high. If you get slow you're dead.

Below 10Nm you're in no escape zone, so you're in troubles.
You should try to launch your Super 530D between the 10Nm to 20Nm.

This is risky approach, but if you practice, it can work.

If you're 2 Vs 1, one can distract the Eagle, while the other one hide in the beam (below the Eagle, trajectory 90° of his radar beam) and recommit with Fox 1 close in look up and outside his radar cone.

To summarize: you will have an easier life flying blue side
...or not with MiG-29S/ J-11A and their R-77

Hi everyone,

similarly to the OP I’m thinking about buying the Mirage in the sale , but me too am worried about the state of it.
Jojo thank you for your answers so far, they made a bit clearer picture of the Mirage state.
However then again I read statements ( in the Limit EA to 1 year ? Thread) like this, quote:


“M2K... released 2015, INS bombing -> doesn't work, CCRP release cue -> doesnt work, requried course on target -> doesn't work, INS allignment -> doesn't work as intended, and many other bugs... But we have got a new Pilot body. And somehow it went out of beta so I guess considered finished. I see Harrier going the same direction and this is why this thread exist. This approach should be avoided.”


Is this still the case, because it makes the aircraft sound rather bugged and makes me hesitate in buying.


If you or someone else could comment on these points that would be very nice.


Thank you,

Kind regards,


Snappy

*CCPL = CCRP, but I prefer to use French acronym, because when calling CCRP people expect US like system, and it isn't.
*PI = Point Initial.

INS bombing = CCPL + PI -> doesn't work,
The bomb auto-release doesn't work.

CCRP release cue = CCPL -> doesnt work,
It does work, but someone recently confused CCPL and CCPL + PI.

requried course on target -> doesn't work,
true

INS allignment -> doesn't work as intended,
It doesn't fail as it should if you goof around. But nothing prevent you from running the procedure correctly.

But we have got a new Pilot body.
The system coder does his stuff, the 3D guy does his stuff

And somehow it went out of beta so I guess considered finished
The glass is half empty/ half full here.
On one hand people are upset because it went out of early access and some bugs are still here.
On the other hand, work has been done on it since out of early access, even if at slower rate. And Razbam has plans to resume to work on it at full steam in near future.
So even if not fast enough, it isn't over yet.

You can do AA, minus 1 bug: sectoral TWS.
You can align INS and use it for navigation, edit waypoints, input new waypoint. You can display waypoint on radar screen and use one of them as bullseye reference.
The INS can be affected by drift. Bug: the INS update procedure is too simplified, so better not use drift or don't try to update.
You can use TACAN/ VOR/ ILS systems.
You can manage 2 radio systems (V/UHF manual and preset + UHF preset).
You can use distinctive auto-pilot system, with ILS capture mode. Bug: runway synthetic display. Better not to trust it too much. But LOC/ GLIDE are good.
AG: CCPL and CCPI ok (low/ high drag bombs, AG gun and rockets). Bug CCPL + PI.

So if you build your mission on what does work, you can already do some realistic missions. (I write this based on reading about journalist flying in air defense training mission or from pilots/ WSO stories from Mirage 2000C & N).

Mirage is definitely in better shape than the Harrier, I'd say it's on par with other DCS aircraft, each of them has some bugs. But Razbam being Razbam, I wouldn't expect them to fix the known issues any time soon.

Yes, there's talk about systems overhaul, but that was mentioned even in 2017, planned before the end of 2018, then the first batch of fixes was expected in January 2019, and now, well, no one really knows...
