Mission 14

Recommended Posts

I encountered an issue with mission 14. The mission initially progressed well and I intercepted the defecting F-16, admittedly a tad late. After wiggling my wings the F-16 started following me and mission command directed me to escort the aircraft to Lincoln County airport, which I duly did. (I sent my wingman to the tanker.)

 

However, when I flew over Lincoln Country airport nothing happened, no new radio messages etc. So I descended lower and circled the airport and its surroundings, finally I landed on the airport in the hope the F-16 would follow. It did not and kept circling. Neither did I have new F-10 radio options.

 

 

 

So I refueled, took off and headed to Nellis. The F-16 followed me for a while, then broke off, turned and landed at Lincoln! (Out of fuel?) However, there were no radio messages, nor a debriefing. The radio messaging at approach (WP7 Apex), Tower and ground worked, plus I got a 'Mission Complete' notice. Though, the results were only 50.

 

 

 

I assume something is supposed to happen when you arrive at Lincoln County airport. Otherwise, nice mission.

Hey!

 

OK when you get the F-16 to follow you you are required to perform a procedure that is described in the mission docs - when you are directly over Lincoln at certain altitude (I think below 5000 feet AGL) you are to lower your gear, which in no-radio situation is a signal for the intercepted aircraft "land here". Did you do that?

Second try.

 

 

 

Following the intercept procedures of the kneeboard (South to North, 4000 ft AGL over the runway), I got the radio traffic that the F-16 understood that the message.

 

 

 

After having circled Lincoln County for a while, the F-16 decided to make a landing attempt... when it suddenly broke off as it was approaching the runway! I did not understand it at first, my fuel dwindling further in the meantime, but then I saw this:

The tanker, KC-135 'Shell', had decided to land at Lincoln County and reserved the runway for itself. Given the length of this airstrip it ran off the runway at the other end and disappeared (having landed, according to the mission results.) The F-16 next to the KC-135 is one of the Polish or Dutch planes attempting to get some fuel off the tanker.

 

 

Then, at last, the F-16 made another attempt and landed. Pfew... 1700 kgs fuel left and back to Nellis. Metal 01 asked me to dial the radio to 'Package', but there was no debriefing. Radio traffic with approach, tower and ground worked correctly. I also got a 'Mission complete' message and a 90% result.

Hey, having a problem with this mission. Everything went fine with the intercept but could not get the F16 to land at Lincoln County despite overflying the runway from the south between 3 and 5,000 feet and lowering my gear when overhead - tried several times. Had to hit the KC130 for extra fuel and hoped he'd land when he went bingo. Instead he just ejected and I failed the mission...

Damn F-16, I’ve always had trouble with him also before when building the mission. Sometimes I hate the AI SO MUCH... I’ll see what I can do, thanks!

 

False alarm Baltic, looks like I didn't have the radar altitude on. Just tried again and it worked perfectly. Thanks for an awesome campaign!

I will check, but this mamy be na AI glitch I won’t be able to solve... if he doesn’t land just go and land yourself at Nellis, the campaign should progress. And I will search for a solution.

 

 

Oh ok.... no probs... will try again tommorrow... thx for the prompt reply...:thumbup:

Hello,

 

 

I'm running the latest open beta.

 

 

For some reason, the F16 did not spawn for me (checked on tackview). Beholder was giving me the position of the "phantom F16", but no plane was there.

 

 

I had lost my wingman when fighting the MiGs 29 earlier, that might be related.

 

 

 

I'm going to try it again and report if I can reproduce the issue.

This mission is quite infernal !

I'm not confident with aerial refueling, so it's quite impossible to score the 8 bandits (who come from very far different aeras and chasing them is a nightmare)

So when it comes to the interception, i'm usually with less than 300/400 kg kerozene and i can't wait for the f16 to Land.

 

I agree this one is a little piece of immersive ops but now that's the 6/7 th time i fly it, trying everything (very low on fuel, high altitude, working with wingman, etc... even cheating with 2tank of fuel at startup // no more luck, i've been hit each time...)

Well, congrats @baltic_dragon for the whole JOb, that's amazing, even if these triggers and AI are so touchy, buggy, some time it'll work, other won't....Some bug still...

Better then the enemywithin3, great masterpiece also !
