There is one already present in the files, as well as a launch ramp.

 

I'm pretty sure it's planned to be a functional unit, it's just missing proper implementation, as well as the numerous other support structures.

Also, GR attempted to do the whole flipping thing with missiles.... it doesn't work

GR attempts to do many things. LOL I'm afraid I've actually blocked them from showing in my YouTube search results because many of their videos simply show the wrong way to do things.

Dude, they practically rammed the blasted thing, and it didn't do a damn thing to the missile.... plane was in a million pieces though

Do we have an allied aircraft capable of catching one?

Then they were doing it wrong because you can shoot the missile down. You can also touch the wingtips, it will not tumble over, but you might be able to crash into it and take both of you down.

Howto please 😄 I'm so tired of typing 'DCS XYZ tutorial -"Grim Reapers"' all the time in the YT search.

 

And yeah, +1 for working V1. Lots of great opportunities here for SP missions and also decent MP fun.

I think Mosquito will probably be able to do so, I also vaguely remember them being one of the aircraft used in intercepting V-1, but don't know if it was our particular version.

It would take a sophisticated DM/FM to do this, right now I think if planes touch each other they break or explode. But it would be cool…

Well, it's similar-ish stuff to the wake turbulence, I just don't know if it affects AI stuff.

The V1 always had a pilot and they were not that quick, intercepting is in a dive and you drop in behind them. There is a way to crash them and their pilot if you're out of bullets and that is to fly your wing under their wing and flick it by rolling away from it. Once upside down a V1 is impossible to recover. The Spitfire, Mustang and many others can intercept a V1.

The overwhelming majority of V-1s and the V-1 we have in DCS were unmanned, they didn't have a pilot, and they only had a simplistic autopilot.

I don't believe that v1s had a pilot.

As for their speed, you sure about that.  According to this article, they flew at upto 400mph and were difficult to catch unless you could dive on one.

The Fi 103R had a pilot, but the overwhelming majority of V-1s and the V-1s everybody thinks of (Fi 103) were unmanned, only have a simplistic autopilot.

Agreed, 400mph is fairly fast for prop aircraft.

I'd love to see German V1 rockets in the sim, especially for use on the Channel map. It would be so much fun to try to recreate the wing-tipping tactics they used to send them off course.

SUBS17 and his false information again. Just put him on ignore, there is pretty much zero true things coming. Little example of his expertise 👽😄

 

 

We had this here too and in a lot of other threads already. Just weirdo ideas from whatever place but for sure not reality:

 

 

And no, the Vs neither the V-1 nor the V-2 had pilots ever.

 

There were plans for a kamikaze V-4 (basically an cockpit-upgraded V-1, which Northstar mentioned) tho, which would have been piloted by a suicide pilot ("Geschwader 200" iirc). But this was never realized and afaik the plans were stopped somewhere in 1944.

Go to the channel you want to block, and then click on "ABOUT"

On the right side, click the flag icon, and select "Block"

I do still get the odd video pop up when doing searches, but not many, and it makes it much easier to find content that's actually helpful.

I think you've misunderstood part of what I'm asking for. I was hoping that we might have the ability to do things like tip over V1s added at some point. The fact that somebody tried it and failed isn't really pertinent to the request. It simply demonstrates that the functionality required to fly such a mission isn't there. That's why I've put it on the wishlist.
