Operation Desert Thunder Campaign for the JF-17 Thunder


Recommended Posts

Operation Desert Thunder


The year is 2017. Tensions have been brewing between the Republic of Hormuz and the Free State of Bastak for several years regarding natural gas deposits found off the island of Qesm. So far, any attempt by the international community to mediate the dispute has been rebuffed by both parties who claim the Island as their own; Hormuz because it is within their borders and Bastak due to the many of Bastak heritage who live on the Island.
 

Sponsored by the Russian Federation and People's Republic of China, Kuban Security has been enlisted to bolster the air force of Hormuz with their JF-17 Thunders. It is hoped that this move will stabilize the situation and calm the ambitions of both the Free State of Bastak and the local insurrection by the Prophets Faithful.

You are THUNDER LEAD, a veteran flight leader in Kuban Security. You and your colleagues are now the Hormuz only modern air force assets and the nations last defence against the forces that seek to disrupt peace and balance in the region.

Key Features:

  • Fly the JF-17 Thunder over the Persian Gulf as part of the PMC Kuban Security and their deployment to boost the air force of the Russian Federation ally of Hormuz.
     

  • Perform ten missions such as combat air patrol, close air support, low level attack and deployment of precision munitions against a large variety of targets.
     

  • Aid your allies against both a local insurgency and the unknown agenda of the western-alligned state of Bastak and their F-16C Vipers!
     

  • Fly together with a friend in the additional Co-Op Campaign!

Thanks a lot for this 👍 I have enjoyed your previous Campaigns a lot, looking forward to flying this one too 🙂

 

Edit: Currently I'm not flying the JF-17 because of other small projects, but I hope to be able to fly her again soon. Of all the different installations that you propose, I elected to place the Campaign alongside the official one (which I haven't played let), and I understand that I will have to re-place it there after any DCS update, but I found that it just looks better:

If you chose to put it under the JF-17 Tab, you will not need to replace it after every update. It may however create errors for users of the Steam version as their software considers it to be unlicensed DLC. But I agree it looks better. I am kinda hopeful that the Campaign manager will be updated so Campaigns will be sorted by Aircraft even if they are third party.

I believe@Rudel_chw meant that he put it under the installation folder, and not in Saved Games. And then when DCS updates, it will be wiped out. I also agree it looks much better when it's correctly under each aircraft, so I use a mod manager for all campaigns and single missions I like.
Unless I'm mistaken and do something wrong, I hope ED will change this in the future, so we can place all user content under Saved Games, and it will be displayed per airframe.
(I'm not using Steam).
Cheers!

I had Operation Black Bear in the installation folder since I made it. It has never been removed or changed with patches.

That would only affect files the DCS Updater is updating, removing or replacing. Any other files are untouched. The only downside is the above mentioned problems with Steam installations where Steam is wondering why you have DLC they cannot find in their store.

You are probably right now that I think of it. But I'm used to repair a lot for various reasons. I'm gonna try it again, because I haven't repaired in a while, and sort of solved the culprit.
But I do wish we could put every usermade content in the Saved Games folder, the way some mods are going now, and that would solve the Steam issue as well!
Cheers!
