Just on a lark, I tried landing the A-4E on the “image” of the longer Fallon runway...very gentle touchdown, just realized “ok I’m on the gr....BOO-oo-OOOM!” and I made a spectacular crash and burn site.

Has anyone successfully landed on the image?

NTTR is supposed to serve as a realistic training area before "deploying" to other maps such as the Persian Gulf and Caucasus. While we only had the A-10C as the main full fidelity module, NTTR and Nellis AFB was perfectly fine, however; DCS is becoming much more naval aviation oriented with the Hornet and Tomcat and NAS Fallon is very much needed.

The location of NAS Fallon is already within the boundaries of the NTTR map but it is just outside of the detailed area of the map. It is approximately 68 nm to the northwest of Minas airport. The detailed portion would have to expanded only one grid square to the northwest to include NAS Fallon.

I really hope they reconsider and surprise us all with the very much needed NAS Fallon.
Hell I bet most of us would be ok with a slight deviation in location to keep it inside the detailed map area. but yes 10000% yes we need a Naval Air Station and Fallon is perfect as the majority of the area is already modeled. We need an FCLP field as well. Fallon could fill both roles.

Tomcat is coming! Hopefully with FCLP somewhere/anywhere.

Yup, but I suggested making a FARPish base, just because it is there. Part of the process would be to see if one could land on just the image (the image itself shouldn’t have rocks and bumps unless placed there as part of a programmed global config, so a smooth landing could happen)...

Except it didn’t with a conventional aircraft, so...I played around a bit with Mission Editor buildings, FLaK 37’s and 38’s, until I got bored.

On to bigger and better things! (BTW, you can’t put a carrier on land. :^\ )

I'm absolutely with you VZ. And Fallon would have been a good reason to buy NTTR or to like/use it more.


Why I'm not "over and out" is because of this thread:

It would be really cool if there was a NAS to practise carrier landings the real way, with a ball and marks on a runway of the size of a carrier's runway.


Maybe with an operator that calls your results by radio. Just like the real thing.


Fallon would have been great for that, but if it is not possible, we should have a FCLP site somewhere else.
