A10 and F-15 summary for beginners by a beginner


Recommended Posts

To all lomac beginners (like me).

 

After countless hours reading the manuals, flying the training missions, experimenting in the Quick Flights, and asking many dumb questions here on this forum, I have put together a Quick Reference Summary on the A10 and the F-15. I feel I've done a decent job of reducing everything down into a reasonably organized quick reference summary. I thought I would share it with any of you who have been wanting something like this. Hope you enjoy. Comments/edits welcome.

Note: I had to put the doc in a follow-up message due to length constraints
