Today we welcomed new pilot 'Trigger' who took the controls of STING 311.
He flew his first 6 trap Carrier Qual before our mission landings were recorded.

Thought I'd share our latest training film which steps out our formation procedures:

Nice! I like the new video. Definitely learned something.

Do you guys make simple calls to get in formation, or have you figured out a way to have the Virtual Pilot in the cockpit give "zip lip" hand gestures? Maybe one day with VR gloves it would be possible

Whoever is lead tends to pre-brief the launch rendezvous then inbound formation. What you see in the video is our basic SOP that has been in place for about a month.

During the mission lead will simply utter directions like "Sting flight, cross turn" and everybody crosses their fingers and hopes to end up in the right spot!

How come you don't use DCS SR for your coms, if you don't mind me asking? Is it because your using a mods for the Hornet? And how often do you open recruiting?

We don't really open recruiting as such, super keen people tend to start hanging out in our teamspeak and if they fit in great with the group and are as interested in carrier ops as we are they get offered a jet.
We limit aircraft number to the same as the real squadron and I find it keeps a good active squad. We love helping people start their own squadrons as well which is the main reason we share all our training and as much of our mods as we can.

We have launched a new squadron, VFA-83 RAMPAGERS as the Stingers have no aircraft left to give out.
Their aircraft are currently being painted and the Hornet mod they fly will be available to the public soon.

The Commanding Officer is a great pilot called Strike. You can see their very first traps aboard the USS George H W Bush in our latest PLAT film:

As a reward to the loyal fans of PLAT videos we have uploaded a public version of the flyable F/A-18C Hornet mod created by ISVA (Thanks Morkva, Slebdeff).

With the mod you get also all my best US Navy mods from the past decade:

- The USS George H W Bush CVN77 (I did the paint) with PLAT cam and VR alternate LSO views. Includes the Anubis Meatball and LRLS and CDP Kobras amazing 3D work.
- My RAAF paint and Aussie female refueller voice mod. (Affects UKR IL-78M)
- My integrated manual into both the Huey and Hornet which has detailed MGRS maps for parts of Nevada, PLAT cam crosshairs for standard monitors, Oculus Rift and 4K monitors, Various Hornet NATOPs pages.
- My highly detailed VFA-113 Stingers and (NEW) VFA-83 Rampagers paint schemes.

The in game manual with the overlays is a real break through as it allows you to have the same PLAT cam crosshairs you see in our videos IN GAME. Just jump in a Hornet, hit ESCAPE and select the manual.



As mentioned earlier VFA-83 is our new squadron that will be under Stingers operating procedures in our airwing (CVW-17, tail code NA). This is why VFA-83 are 400 series modex (not 300) and NA (not AG) tails.
Interested pilots can now download the mod and log into teamspeak and express their interest in joining.

Shhhhhhhhhh.....Only for readers of this thread, don't tell anyone

EDIT : You can use JGSME, please no whinging, if you don't like it uninstall it and delete it. This mod represents years of work and you're getting it free.
