Default Indestructible trees

So I just got back to DCS a month ago like many here and starting again with the SU-25T.

And I'm having a lot of trouble with the Instant Action CAS Medium. The enemy forces are in the woods and blocking all my weapons. Looking at the Tacview, 4 SU-25T's were throwing everything at this one tank covered by trees on all sides and can't kill it with all the Vikhrs and 25L
And this tank wasn't moving. Doesn't matter which angle.

Also the accuracy of 25MPU... I fire 10, hit like 3 or 4. Is there accuracy mod or remove tree collision somewhere?

Running latest OB.

Thanks for clarifying that up. But how do you edit the Instant Action missions with ME?

By going to the appropriate directory and loading them.

Instant, not regular, nevermind. Don't know if you can modify instant action missions. Just create/use a similar mission, and do what you need to there.


That said, tanks hiding in a forest is like... a normal, intelligent thing for them to do. In this case, the correct course of action would be for you to alter your tactics and weapons to fit the situation. Laser guided atgms are probably not a great choice for a fast mover to use against targets hiding in dense forests. They wouldn't work very well in real life either.

And as a suggestion, you can put vikhrs on a Su-25T, but that doesn't mean it's a great idea. They destroy your aerodynamics and performance, and it takes 20-30 minutes of circling repeatedly to get them all off on a target area (since you have 16 of them and can only fly so slow). I literally NEVER use them on the Frogfoot. They suck horribly, imo. Virtually any other weapon is a better choice. What works well on an attack helicopter doesn't necessarily translate to a fixed wing fast mover... or is it just a coincidence this concept never went anywhere beyond a handful of testbed aircraft?

Sounds like you haven't played that mission. You don't get to choose your weapons in Instant Action. And there are like 20 of them you have to destroy or you fail the mission. Couple bombs are not going to work. Poorly designed missions I should say if the trees are tougher than armors.

Found the location of the Instant Action missions by the way. Called QuickStart.
