Default DCSW - F-15c "Bear Trap" Campaign Update for DCS 2.5

For your pleasure,work in progress early access for said campaign, still testing each mission for faults, (SEAD is a real headache, AGM-154c no good at all and are being replaced with AGM-65D, yes they work better so long as plane can get in close and avoid missile fire).

PHASE 1: Complete at 22-03-2018
- Changed - Date, Season and Temperatures of missions:-
- Missions 0-10. = Spring 22-31 March 2011. (COMPLETED)

- Changed - Briefing info and waypoints to match pictures.
- Missions 0-10, (COMPLETED)

- Changed - US F-15C (Player) flight payloads back to Aim-120C x 6 and fuel x (1 or 3) to match brief.

- Repositioned - All "Ground units" and "FARPS" from out of forests.
- Missions 0-10. (COMPLETED)

- Changed - Position of all static aircraft and vehicles from taxi ways and parking areas in Airfields:-
- Missions 0-10. (COMPLETED)


PHASE 2: Complete at 27-03-10-2018

I was only able to test 2 missions.
#01 went flawlessly, F-16s do their job (SEAD, DEAD), mission complete, only F-15Cs get shot down by SA-19s, before I get to the AO
#02 seems ok, but the briefing says about getting there at the right time (12:12) that will make A-50 more vulnerable when it's not really like that - it's like going near the wasps hive (at least 2 Su27s escort). Especially when you have to do it by yourself because I have yet to find a way to somehow get the wingman fly over there at the right time too. Have already tried 'trail', 'pincer high' and just 'route' but he mostly crashes way before or get there first high and get shot down. I will try timing 'hold your position' and then 'rejoin' next time.

Thanks Draconus.... I also tested mission 2 and it was easy as pie. Mission success with my wingman down and I didn't even land a shot. It's not the best because I didn't really learn anything but at least it beats failing no matter what I do. If I only knew coding enough to help out I'd try to tweak it.

You have to consider that there isn't a lot of options around when it comes to high fidelity sims of modern high performance aircraft...

On another note, it's good to know the campaign is being worked on, the other day I tried the Bear Trap and was also stuck due to F-16's failing their missions...

...let alone F-15C. But we never gonna get full fidelity one because someone picked it for LOMAC 15 years ago, then it got 'FC3' label and there we go - exactly my point.

I fly campaign missions almost exclusively so it's important for me to have them working.

Mission #02 - last night tried again a few times. I think nothing is wrong with the mission itself but it's challanging for me. I got mission complete once but was already falling on a chute. Tried it Rambo style - straight to the WP12 timing it for 12:12, angels 35, all BVR, full AB, 3 reds go down... and then I got hit :) On a second try I succeeded - looks like high altitude BVR run is THE way to go. With the trails all around there's much clearer SA. Is this realistic? Probably not - A-50 should be aware and fly away with more reds scrambled.

Mission #03 & #04 completed without much hassle.

Will there be any updates ? The Bear trap campaign is unplayable in DCS 2.5.
