Recommended Posts

** REQUIRE DCS 2.7 & The Syria map **

Version 0.9 Beta

 

As a pilot of the Israel air force, you are tasked to sink 2 Chinese cargo ships in the Lebanese territorial waters.

This mission is fully voiced (dozens of recording), has custom music and automated radio. I would consider the difficulty to be easy. To complete it, you need to know the following:

 

1. Take-off / Landing.

 

2. Follow a flight plan thru the programmed steer points.

 

3. Use of dumb bombs and rockets.

 

Enjoy and please leave comments. It will help for my future missions.

Thanks!

Scenario

 

May 1985,

 

Shortly after the Lebanon war of 1982, the dust slowly settles between Lebanon and Israel. However, the middle east is more divided than ever and dozens of insurgent groups fight each other in search of power.

 

Syria becomes a nest for insurgent groups, becoming the haven of weapon smugglers and extremists. On May 6th 1985, Mossad is getting tipped off about a huge shipment of thousands of Chinese AK-47 and RPGs heading for Syria thru the Bassel Al-Assad port. These smuggled weapons will be sold to the various insurgent groups, representing a serious threat in the area.

 

The cargo ships smuggling the weapons, named Sheunsh an Awhan, are currently crossing the Lebanese territorial water, heading to the Bassel Al-Assad port in Syria. The Israel military demanded access to the Lebanon airspace to sink these ships, which are a threat to security of both countries. Since Lebanon has no air force and would rather let Israel take the political heat for destroying Chinese ships, it temporarily granted the Israeli air force access to their airspace.

 

On the morning of may 7th 1985, the operation begins.

 

Note from the developer

 

1. The ATC and radio are fully automated in this mission. You do not need to touch it at all.

 

2. For the best experience, set the AUDIO option "IN-COCKPIT" to 50%. This will provide the perfect volume to hear the radio.

 

3. Follow the Flight plan / Steer points precisely for the mission to run smoothly.

 

I have few missions of this type that are quite interactive, but that are relatively easy. If I see that there is an interest, I am planning to release a short campaign. Please leave you comments.

Does this mission only work with F-16? Can I modify it into F/A-18C?

 

Yes I guess you could simply change the aircraft type directly in the mission editor.

Guys if you try this out, please let me know if you think the content is fun. Take a minute to come back here and comments. It will tell me if I should invest time on that easy campaign or not.

I have converted one with F/A-18C with almost identical loadout, with proper livery. With your permission, I would like to post it here after testing.

I must have done something with the cold start procedure of the Hornet and both CCIP of Hydra and Mk.82 are way off. I tried "start from parking lot" and it runs fine. I cannot change the speech and text of certain dialogue to indicate the correct plane.

 

Initial comment: light anti-ship mission and using unguided weapons makes it interesting.

 

Thanks for making this mission.

 

BTW, I have made a mission of A-4E-C Skyhawk. I think it may be even more interesting. On the other hand, Viggen may be an overkill, even with dumb weapons.

Frag, 

 

mission is very nice and fun! In my opinion it is really good for F-16 begginers :). 

 

I really hope that you will make this campaign 🙂!! 

 

(consider to change it from easy to easy-medium ;])

Thanks for the feedback VonVerner. I already have Powder Keg Soup II in the oven. I am making the sound recording at this point. This one is way more difficult, and would reach medium difficulty.

 

The one you just played would be nice as an intro mission for the campaign.... not too difficult and mood oriented.
