Red Flag Training Missions - F/A-18C


Recommended Posts

For the Day 0 mission I can move the humvee right next where runway 21L ends , so you have to follow it to parking.

For the ATIS I can also add it once for all ... I didnt spent so much time on that mission cause it's just an intro but I can close when I got the time.

 

First impression is most important :)

 

Nah, Humvee is good where it is. Once you've figured out where to vacate (that airport pic should help with this), there's only one way to go. Impossible to screw-up.

Hi

What does it mean after "take off" on CH5 COMM2 - "... climb flight level 70 maintain 300 over Track Stop, resume navigation ?

In "Mission Data Card" I see:

- WP1 7000ft

- WP2 20000 ft and maintain this level over all WPs..

Where there about FL300 & what does it mean - "Track Stop"?

I guess this is just a stock ATC phrase, you can ignore it and fly straight to WP1 @ 7000ft.

 

(And "maintain 300" means knots, not flight level)

In stock ATC phase for speed - "keep", not "maintain".

Maintain - only for FL!

"Keep speed" - keep present speed, or "speed 300 knots" - for 300 knots speed

Anyway, at least in the first three missions (I haven't played further yet) this command can be safely ignored.

Refueling at tanker SHELL (before air battle or after) - is it necessary condition for mission complete or at will ?

Briefing and kneeboard... very different!

 

For example.. (I think that not only this mission):

Mission "Red Flag Training - Day 2 - ACM Training"

Really in mission... briefing correct (Only title incorrect... Day2, not Day1), and kneeboard flight plan in this mission - full discrepancy!

 

 

And more...

Mission "Day 2 - ACM Training - AGGRESSOR":

- ATIS not work on CH2 COMM2

- After got Showtime to stop the fight - information "go to WP6", but WP6 - FEBA (it seems that it in all missions - directs on WP6 after "stop the fight"...)

- "Check out" according breifing -WP8. But information about contact for "Check out" appear on WP7, but after press spacebar" & declare "Colt 1-1 check out".... no answer.

- F10 on WP10 (Landing IP) - mute with any ATIS..

My Red Flag Iron Hand mission freezes after the second loading screen when you hit the START button. I made a MP copy of this and same thing, can see the briefing, but hit START and loads about 66% of the way and hangs up there...

 

 

This started after the recent update.

So I've redone the first mission a couple of times. Magic 1-1 lands, I land (obv with full ATC spacebar-interaction). Music plays. So i touch down and ATC tells me to vacate via Alpha (which is at the end of 21L), and contact ground on ch3 comm2... I vacate, switch to that channel...

 

listen...

press spacebar...

mash spacebar...

nothing.

 

I continue taxiing and arrive at a parking spot with about 5 HMMWVs... at which point I was ready to call it a night.

We've all landed. Comms were done (well ground was absent but hey...)

 

Music has played.

 

Exit.

 

Campaign failed...

 

 

 

WHY?

No problem on mission on my side.

 

Arriving at parking spot just behind the humvee that leads you to that point , you get message "You can END MISSION now." , this will trigger the right score to go to the next stage.

 

You can see the correct sequence from this video ( from 8:00 till the end )

 

And , dont forget:

 

At the end of the mission make sure you press button "END MISSION" , otherwise , if you press "EXIT", you'll end up doing this mission again ... it's something DCS related not mine! :)

Roger,

 

 

 

what was unclear is that I get the message to vacate via alpha, but there's no humvee waiting there, I "bumped" into them going to what I thought was a good spot for parking.

 

I'll try it again just to make sure it works... I was starting to think it was me "wandering" too far off the AWACS I'm supposedly escorting, or not managing my wingman, IDK.

 

 

 

However, thanks for your work and for taking the time to follow up/answer. I imagine how much work goes into designing something like that.

These are amazing, thanks so much for putting them out.

 

In mission 2, the escort for Texaco, as soon as I got close to the tanker, I was told to RTB. The briefing makes it seem like I'm supposed to stay in formation for quite a while. I went ahead and RTB right away, and the result was 100%. But I was a little confused. Was I supposed to go ahead and stay for a bit even though I got the trigger telling me to RTB?

 

In mission 3, as I was taxiing to the runway, I stopped before the threshold and sent out the comms to request takeoff. My wingman then crashed into me. I've noticed this in other missions too, is there any way to stop your wingman from taxiing into you?
