Exclamation TOP GUN 2017 by TAW



IT’S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN EVERYONE…….
TIME FOR TOP GUN PRESENTED TO YOU BY: THE ART OF WARFARE – DCS DIVISION


We are back with ROUND 4, but it will be called TOP GUN 2017 from now on and the years will obviously increase in the future.

What is Top Gun?

The Top Gun event is in its fourth incarnation and has been an intense and awesome event every time. This has provided us with some of the best dogfighting we’ve ever seen.

This event has been created, planned and will be hosted by TAW (The Art of Warfare) in association with Situational Awareness. Therefore ladies and gents it will count towards your SA ranking.

The formula is the same as last year, but make sure you read the rules to get an understanding of how it will work.

When is it?

1 vs 1 – Saturday 11th of November 2017 @ 1500z

2 vs 2 – Saturday 18th of November 2017 @ 1500z

What can I fly?

Our roster for aircraft available this time around is the following:

SU-27
SU-33
F-15C
M2000C


SU27 - 55% FUEL @ 5000m 2 x IR Missile = 5 min BURN TIME
SU33 - 50% FUEL @ 5000m 2 x IR Missile = 5 min BURN TIME
F15C - 71% FUEL @ 5000m 2 x IR Missile = 5 min BURN TIME
M2000C - 38% FUEL @ 5000m 2 x IR Missile = 5 min BURN TIME

What are the rules?

Detailed rules and DCS Map location overview are HERE.

How will it work?

The event will be split into TWO separate competitions, a 1vs1 and a 2vs2.
For the 1vs1 competition we have 32 slots to fill and for the 2vs2 we are going to get 16 teams (32 slots).
8 slots from each competition have already been reserved for invitees.
Once signed up, pilots will then be sorted and assigned matches.
Each match will consist of three rounds, first player/team to get 2 victories is declared the winner and will move onto the next stage.

The three rounds will be structured like this:

#### 1vs1 ####

– Round 1 –
Pilots will be provided with 2 heat seeking missiles (SU27/33 – R-73, F15C – AIM-9, M2K – Magic) and their aircrafts gun, all of which will be employed post merge only.

– Round 2 –
Pilots will be equipped only with their GUNS ONLY, in traditional Top Gun fashion, again firing post merge only.

– Round 3 –
If after round 2 the score is tied then we repeat round 2 GUNS ONLY to get our winner.

#### 2vs2 ####

– Round 1 –
Pilots will be provided with 2 heat seeking missiles (SU27/33 – R-73, F15C – AIM-9, M2K – Magic) and their aircrafts gun, all of which can be employed pre merge.

– Round 2 –
Pilots will be equipped only with their GUNS ONLY, in traditional Top Gun fashion, again firing can be pre merge.

– Round 3 –
If after round 2 the score is tied then we repeat round 2 GUNS ONLY to get our winner.



————————————————

We strongly believe in showing good sportsmanship, therefore all matches will have a referee who will orchestrate the match and resolve any issues that may arise during.

You will not be allowed to switch airframes once the match has started, you must complete all three rounds with the same airframe. You can change airframes in between matches.

For attendance to the event itself, you must show up 30 minutes before your match begins, if you aren’t present in the TeamSpeak lobby 30 minutes before your match then we will already contact reserves.
If you do not show up 15 minutes before the match someone from the reserve list will fly your match. If no reserves are available, then the match will be ruled as a walkover win.
It’s very important that we keep the event running, so that others will not suffer for someone else’s tardiness.

Alot of organisational work goes into preparing an event like this, therefore we need to stick to a strict timetable to keep everything running smoothly, we hope you understand the reasons for the above.

Finally, keep yourself up to date with the event by checking the thread here, just in case any changes are made. Have fun!

Where do I sign up?

Anyone and everyone is welcome to sign up to the event, for 1vs1 and 2vs2, it doesn’t matter how skilled or unskilled you think you are.
Simply visit the relevant signup form below and enter your details in, once done, hop back to the thread here and just post your callsign into the thread so we can contact you easily if necessary.
We do ask all pilots to signup individually.


SIGNUP HERE


PLEASE NOTE:
We strongly encourage you to sign up even if you believe that we have reached our limit for players, we’ve noticed plenty of AWOL’s at past events so we therefore want a strong reserve list!

How do I see if I am signed up correctly?

Once the first registrations are in, we will post the list on the bottom of the page at the following link below. We will update it each day manually, so give it a day to see you name in the list.

Blue skies to all of you,

Will the flare count be fixed to some arbitrary number or will each frame just have the maximum amount of flares loaded ?

Also what will be the fuel amount for the M2k ?

Will F-15C be limited to the same amount of shells as Su-27 or Mirage?
Signed myself up for 1vs1.

Hello everyone,

Thanks to all the guys who already signed up, we are too looking forward to this event!

@microvax All planes will have the maximum amount of flares available.
Regarding the fuel, the M2K and SU33 will be setup to have just as much burn time as the F15C and SU27, still working on the exact number, we will share once we have found the sweet spot.

Signing up 104th_Stuge (myself) for 1v1 and for 2v2 me and SF_Razer will come defend our title Airframe selection in the form is a bit misleading as i will fly variable airframes

P.S. rules and format look good!

P.P.S. make sure the Mirages are carrying enough flares! The default 16 is hardly desirable for a heatseeker rich environment )))

Hey there previous TOP GUN participants!
Glad to see you guys join again to defend your honor

@Slutcher: Wow, that's a great idea (me being a 27 driver), not sure how those 15 jocks might feel about this......

@stuge My bad, I will adjust it to be a selection, you do not have to go in and redo the application, but future applicants can choose multiple airframes. Thanks for the tip!
