Default JG-1 MiG-21bis Checklist

A few of us over at JG-1 have developed the following checklist for the MiG-21. It is made so it can be printed in a booklet form and use one page, front and back, and then folded for simplicity. I will be laminating mine now that the revisions will be farther apart. I took this formatting inspiration from my flying club's DA-40 checklist

This checklist is based on the game release manual with a few additions from previous checklists for DCS and what I thought would be commonly used actions. There is a bit of subjective input within this checklist and I'm sure that there will be criticism from the pilots here, that is actually why I've made it public. Please voice your suggestions below and I will take each one under consideration for revision.

I kept the emergency procedures very short, as I don't see these in my normal DCS life. If additions are necessary, the cover page can be removed making another page available for text. I do intend to keep it within four booklet pages, though.

29.6.15: Added black and white version.
30.6.15: Corrected date and typo in warnings table.
8.7.16: Added intercept regimes and created in-game kneeboard version. Intended to work with AlaskanGrizzly's DCS Kneeboard Builder.
20.2.18: Added SPRD and Pitot Heat switches to preflight.
22.2.18: Corrected title alignment on 4 page booklet.

Very well made!

Besides, all the emergency's in the 21 end up in ejecting anyway as the final step!

Great stuff, but may I please suggest a b&w printer friendly version without the background image and the huge black boxes on the last page ? I would suggest to make them standard black text on white background please.

Ah, good point, I'll get a B&W one generated up.

I created tables to replace the images of the warning panels on the last page and removed the background watermark. The pdf is saved in grayscale so it should look that way coming out of the printer. Very fine point you've made and I hope that I have provided a suitable alternative.

It is attached to the original post. The cover page's date doesn't match the header/footer date... I'll correct it in a later revision as I see it as a minor typo.

Typo in the warning box on the B&W version: "Engine stat," corrected it to "Engine start."
Corrected the dates on the B&W version.

I've updated the two booklet printed versions to include the intercept takeoff regimes for both afterburner and full throttle settings.

I also created a larger font, smaller page version that is intended for use with the in-game kneeboard. It should work well with AlaskanGrizzly's DCS Kneeboard Builder. Though I have yet to try it out, personally.

Let me know if anyone has any issues.
