F-15C Training Missions!


Recommended Posts

Thanks @draconus, very smooth... I think I get it now having watched that so thanks for sharing. It's like the HUD is adjusting itself for the wind. I was thinking I needed to adjust and was using my rudder to try and keep the cross and velocity indicator in the middle of the HUD (and totally losing it), whereas you are leaving them off to the side and just making sure they are lined up. I will have another go once I get chance.

By all means it's not perfect and I indeed fly in a forward slip. I don't know if jet fighter pilots would coordinate in this descent - probably yes - neglect on my part. The wind at higher altitude is considerable but near the ground is not at all that bad - so no need for crab. You'll notice me checking the HSI from time to time just to make sure I'm on the right path.

Hey thanks for sharing, I've had the F-15c since I started but never gave it a chance but now I'm interested. Is it possible to add a wingman to fly and training too? 

 

Thank You !!!

What would be really cool is if you were able to film yourself doing the cross wind landing one successfully so we can see how it's done. I have tried it about 10 times and either slam into the mountain or realise I have flown miles wide of the runway.  I can't try it again as I'm going to throw my joystick through the monitor!  Would love to see how it is done properly.

 

Here you are! Not a perfect flight by any means, but reasonable enough:

Hm, I meant to imply that you should "leave them off to the side" by these instructions:

There is a crosswind tonight, so you will want to "crab" during your final approach. This means you will let the noise point into the wind, so you will end up approaching the runway flying slightly sideways.

 

I will revise these instructions to make them more clear in the next update!

What do you mean? Are you asking about an online multiplayer version for two players at once? If so, I don't think the format of these lessons would lend itself well to that sort of thing, unfortunately.

plus the cockpit triggers are not multiplayer capable, that’s why no DCS aircraft has multiplayer training missions.

Thanks everyone, I have finally managed to do that one now thanks to the tips, recordings and videos. Now I just need to defeat the practice mission and do the air to air refueling. I think that is going to be much easier now I have worked out the autopilot.

(Also, is there any interest in A-10A training missions? If so, I might look into taking that on as well - a lot of these would be easy to redo for the A-10A.)

YES PLEASE!

 

These FC3 aircraft are light on systems, but are perfect for teaching fundamentals.  This would be perfect training for anyone new getting to DCS - the F15 for basic A-A, and the A10a for basic A-G.  Nice job!

 Haha, that offer was made a while ago but I would second the request. I've been trying to find some A-10A missions to start learning that one. I just don't have the time to learn the more advanced planes at the moment so planning to use FC3 planes for a while (even though I bought the F/A-18C when it was in the sale).  I'm loving the F-15C but going to try the A-10A to see if I prefer ground attack or A2A to then decide which plane I invest my time in from the more advanced ones. Therefore if anyone knows of any A-10A training missions I'd love to hear about it.
