Default MiG Alley - Saturday 2400 Zulu

Hey Great Job Grizzly and Metzger and to the other four MiG pilots! This was by far the best contest we've had to date, and make no mistake, we love the challenges and are continuing to learn ourselves. The reason that I posted our ops log here is that for the first time I could detect a series of tactics being played out between both sides and that's what made this such a classic engagement. Also being evenly matched between MiG-15/F-86 both sides enjoyed a great series of engagements while everyone survived (sorry about sortie #2).

Our guys were really pumped after that third sortie and everyone logged off that night looking forward to next week, so here's hoping that enough interest exists to make it a regular event.

We fly two full four ship flights in the Korea! 1952 server at 2400 hours Zulu on Saturday's and we fly the same time on Thursday nights as well, so if you want additional practice, jump in and look us up.

Hopefully we'll see you and your mates again on Saturday!!

Cheers

I am not a MiG pilot, quite the opposite
Will try to join with a few buddies next Saturday and see with your guys how many Sabers we can have. May be we can plan a big invasion on RED base, split on a few cap/strike packages and waste the reds

If you haven't already, join KOREA!1952 discord, link is on the 1st page.

Default Korea! 1952 Server Status

Has the Korea! 1952 server reverted to DCS Release? We have not seen it in open beta over the past two weeks?

Default Static versus dynamic weather - stuttering

Hi SeaQuark,

Thanks for updating the server. All of us from 77 (F) Sqn were happy to get back onto the server last night and we continue to fly our regular events on Saturdays at 2400 Zulu. We did notice some bad stuttering last night, which seems to be a problem with the .26479 release of open beta. I've just read through the bug reports and it seems that this version is presenting some problems with crashes and flickering black screens.

While those issues are for the developers to address, I stumbled onto a post that might be of interest to you related to fps performance stemming from static versus dynamic weather settings. I know for myself that the instance of stutter is most pronounced in the vicinity of Sukhumi and Gudauta which typically has a layer of cloud cover, and then improves as we fly inland. In the post below, tests were carried out which demonstrate the instances of stutter/lower fps when using static weather, versus the complete absence of stutter when dynamic weather has been enabled.

Not sure if this will be of use to you, but just wanted to bring it to your attention.

Hey Speed, if you shoot me a message on Discord (39th_Bloke in the Korea server) we can discuss getting the 39th up at the same time.
We've been shaking the rust off recently and it'd be cracking to get the squadron sorties going once more!

Default Korea! 1952 - 77 (F) Squadron Operations 9 February 2019

The guys from 77 (F) Sqn enjoyed another session of great A2A action this past Saturday and many thanks to the MiG drivers who put up thirteen sorties between them. We enjoyed these flights especially due to the MiG pilots employment of effective flight/element tactics. Well done!

We had a similar night of action a couple of weeks ago and I took the opportunity then to write up a detailed account of it based on a Tacview track I created from the replay. Here's a description of that review from Saturday the 9th of Feb (Sunday 10th Feb for those of you in Europe and Australia). This account is far more detailed than usual, but it was such a great encounter it deserved to be recorded in the 401/450 Squadron op log.

2400 hrs 9 February 2019

77 (F) Squadron RAAF Roster

A/C # 917/Green # 1 - Devil
A/C # 959/Green # 2 - Infidel (guest pilot sortie #2)
A/C # 960/Green # 3 - Squiz
A/C # 961/Green # 4 - Kookaburra
A/C # 963/White # 1 - Speed
A/C # 964/White # 2 -
A/C # 967/White # 3 - Alpine
A/C # 976/White # 4 - Hawk

Narrative (all times are server local)

Sortie #1
C/S Dropkick was tasked to destroy a vehicle control point at MGR FJ 55. Six Sabres rolled down runway 1 2 at K-55 wheels up at 9:45:23 hours local time. With White Flight leading and Green Flight close behind, the two three-ship flights banked away from K-55 is a tight, well disciplined formation. Dropkick picked up the outbound heading of 350 degrees, completed Fence In and settled in for the short sortie to the target area. At 9:56:55 hrs local, White Lead ordered echelon right to set up for initial attack run. As White rolled onto the target from the North, Green Flight crossed left above White to set up cover over the objective. At 9:59:00 hrs, White Flight engaged T1 with rockets destroying the entire section of six vehicles including four heavy cargo trucks and two mobile AAA units. As White Flight pulled up and to port to set up for a gun run, Green Flight rolled in from the South to engage the buildings designated T3, T4 and T5 scoring hits against and destroying all three targets. White Flight then mounted a single gun run along the tree line adjacent to the road while Green Flight engaged the two bunkers designated T2 scoring hits, but causing no damage. At 10:04:00 hours White Lead a White Four flew a low altitude run down the valley in order to capture a few BDA photos. Meanwhile, White Three broke formation to fly further down the valley where he attempted to engage an AAA unit from low altitude. Unfortunately, White Three was shot down by a ZU 23-2 unit. No chute was observed. The remainder of C/S Dropkick rejoined on the back-bearing to RTB at K-55 at 10:12:15.

Sortie #2
It was 10:40:15 hrs by the time C/S Dropkick took off again for their second sortie. Green Flight welcomed a guest pilot "Infidel" who lent his skill and experience to Green Flight. This second sortie was based on Mission Sheet #7 CAP 3. White Flight experienced a string of technical glitches that delayed their take-off for ten minutes. Green Flight however took off and climbed toward 39,000' on an initial heading of 360 degrees, turning onto 270 degrees to set up as high cover. White Flight finally rolled off the end of runway 1 2 at 10:53:15.

White Flight banked away from K-55 to pick up their outbound heading of 330 degrees continuing their climb-out to CAP cruise altitude. Within minutes of overflying the lower foothills North of K-55, White Three called out contrails at 11 o'clock high. White Lead tallied the four ships of Green Flight but also spotted a lone bogie approaching low on an intercept course. As Green Flight had just completed their first circuit past Maykop, and had just turned toward the coast and were in the process of banking left again onto 360 degrees, they had not tallied this aircraft. The bogie approached along 150 degrees or 11 o'clock to Green, but even though he was coming fast at 35,000', no one in Green had yet tallied this threat. Suffering comms problems again, White Lead relayed through White Four, who contacted and warned Green Lead of the bogie. At 11:05:32, MiG#1 (Coosjoaquin) engaged Green Four who was lagging some distance behind. In that same instant, Green One and Two executed a hard bank to starboard to engage MiG#1. MiG#1 closed rapidly on Green Four but overshot his target without scoring any hits so he extended in a climbing left bank to 38,000' while Green One and Two extended a short distance South. Green Two pulled high right as Green One completed his turn to engage MiG#1 in a head on pass. In exchanging bursts, neither pilot registered any hits but just beyond the merge, MiG#1 fired a snap shot that narrowly missed Green Two crossing his front. MiG#1 then climbed high right to separate from Green One who climbed high left.

At 11:07:48 hrs MiG#1 skillfully reversed to engage Green Two then descending through 32,000' in a right bank. Green Two spotted the threat and snap rolled his Sabre left to break contact with MiG#1 attacking from behind. This allowed Green Three to slip into firing range and threaten MiG#1 but this pilot used his considerable flying skills to instantly reverse left and dive under Green Three. As the action continued, Green Four completed RTB at K-55. Meanwhile, Green Two re-engaged MiG#1 with a short burst that missed. Three seconds later Green One fired three well placed bursts but MiG#1 again expertly rolled inverted to dive away from danger. This caused Green One to overshoot so he immediately pulled up and to the right to make way for Green Two and Three who now took up the pursuit.

The MiG pilot evaded this new threat by pulling hard right and using maximum thrust to climb away but Green Three managed to squeeze off a short burst that narrowly passed by the cockpit of the jinking MiG-15. This action set up a rolling scissors as Green Three pulled his Sabre above the MiG (and no doubt vanished in the act) as the increasingly desperate MiG pilot tried to extend away to the NW. But escape was not yet possible as Green One had re-positioned for a head on pass to fire a long burst at the passing MiG. This action turned the MiG hard left just as Green Two pulled once again into effective gun range. Green Two then fired a steady burst that ripped along the entire length of his opponent's fuselage. An instant later Green Two fired a second burst sending a steam of .50 cal rounds into the stricken MiG-15. In a flash, the MiG exploded.

It looked to White Flight, orbiting North of the fight at 38,000', as if the MiG split into three sections rising up like a fountain of burning wreckage then cascading down in an arc to the ground below.

With the action seemingly over, White Flight cruised high above Green Flight who were now rejoining on a heading of 060 degrees five thousand feet below. Dropkick then turned onto 120 degrees and extended toward the coast intending to RTB at K-55 for fuel and ammo. But at 11:18:40 hours, White Three reported a pair of contrails at 9 o'clock to the North and climbing. Green Lead checked fuel and once he was satisfied that enough remained for another round, ordered Dropkick to turn onto a 360 degree to intercept. White Flight banked smoothly to port and jettisoned tanks to prepare for this second round. White Lead then suffered another system failure when his tank release failed to function. Using the emergency jettison control he watched as the big 200 gal tanks cartwheeled away from his starboard wing, then confident of flying a clean aircraft, continued to climb toward the incoming bogies. As the second engagement got underway, MiG#1 (Coosjoaquin) barreled in on a head-on attack against Green Lead, while MiG#2 (Brunson) trailed in echelon right some distance behind. White Flight pushed higher to 39,000' to commence a cross over above the merge.

Watching below as Green Lead and MiG#1 exchanged fire at the merge, White Lead observed hits on the MiG. White Flight continued to pull up in a right arc high over the MiG to gain position for the pursuit. MiG#1 then leveled his wings to climb above con then rolled left to dive back into the fight. White Flight were well positioned and now dropped in lag pursue of MiG#1 closing the gap as he re-entered con toward Green Flight below. Green One had by now reversed and charged in for a second head-on pass firing a short burst at MiG#1. Green Two joined White Lead in pursuit of MiG#1 as both aircraft passed through .90 Mach. At 11:24:27 hrs MiG#1 was forced to counter another head-on pass as Green Three fired a burst that narrowly missed the nose of his opponent's aircraft. With the pilot of MiG#1 distracted by Green Flight, White Lead closed to within effective gun range to fire three short bursts that forced MiG#1 to jink yet again. Each aircraft manoeuvred to gain an advantage in the thin air at 38,000' but it was Green Two and White Lead who managed to retain position to fire bursts in rapid succession. White Lead quickly fired a second burst that scored hits on the left rear fuselage.

MiG#2 now entered the fight from the North, passing beneath MiG#1 to bank around to the left in an attempt to engage wingmen White Three and White Four. At 11:26:20 hrs, MiG#1 snap rolled, reversed and dove away. This manoeuvre took MiG#1 below con at .90 Mach with White Lead in pursuit, but the MiG was able to climb out effectively while White Lead dropped lower to remain out of buffet. While at first this seemed to place White Lead at a disadvantage, since the MiG initially climbed higher, the greater speed retained by the Sabre allowed it to out-climb the MiG to regain a position above and behind the MiG.

Green Three now rejoined the fight to fire a short burst as Green Two closed the gap while squeezing off a snap shot. But in diving onto the climbing MiG, Green Two overshot his intended target and slipped below and to the right. White Lead continued to edge his Sabre into point blank range then squeezed a burst just as the MiG filled his gun sight. A stream of .50 Cal rounds tore into the wing root and port side fuselage forcing MiG#1 into a hard bank to port but unfortunately for him, he was caught squarely with a second burst by White Lead. MiG#1 now used his considerable skill in an attempt to break clear of Dropkick while MiG#2 was engaged with White Three and Four ten miles to the East.

Green One and Green Three now re-engaged MiG#1 each firing short bursts while jockeying for position. MiG#2 disengaged from White Three and Four and he seemed to take up a heading toward a passing flight of cargo planes at 30,000' above. But as Green One fired three bursts almost at the same time that Green Two fired three of his own, MiG#2 suddenly banked left toward MiG#1 undoubtedly in response to a call for some assistance. Before MiG#2 could influence the fight however, Green Two fired again to score more hits on MiG#1. The time was now 11:30:52 as MiG#1 pulled a high scissors to expertly dive down, fire and hit Green Two with a near fatal burst from his cannons. Green Two, now smoking badly and unsure of the extent of damage to his Sabre stayed with Green One as the pair continued the chase MiG#1. Just then, a burst of fire passed by Green Lead too close for comfort and he was forced to break left (White Three was closing on Green One and had fired past him at the MiG). White Three then passed very close to but overshot the MiG. This allowed MiG#2 to pull onto the six of White Three to fire a short burst but no hits were registered.

The fight now began to die out as MiG#1 was critically damaged and unable to regain altitude. He struggled along at 7,000' toward Maykop but crashed at 11:35:49 before reaching the airport. MiG#2 redirected toward the passing cargo aircraft enticing Green Flight and the remainder of White to chase him for a while, but Green Lead called bingo fuel to lead Dropkick back to K-55. All aircraft completed RTB at 11:45:00 hours.
