    New Mandatory Mod

    Gents, In order for us mission makers to give you a better experience and more variety in our missions, we're requiring the installation of one additional mod. The Ranger79 Mod. It's not an immediate requirement, but you'll begin to see missions using this mod, so please get it installed and working ASAP. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=121620 -Redd
  6. Updated skins. Again. Modex has officially changed to 400 series and modex's are hard baked into the liveries. Select a skin and the number will always correspond. Last time for a while with an exception: still waiting on Zipper's info to make his and Stiletto will get his once he graduates up to 251 proper. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-_z4MPRJmTJ2CdY4ocZHdAOOu9k_Vu8x ***DELETE YOUR OLD 251 SKINS (except the default ED one)*** Download, unzip, and place in your liveries folder. Also in the Google Drive folder is the Flight Suit mod by Home Fries, the guy that originally made our skins. Let me know if there are any issues. -Redd

    Ha ha! Me? Do paperwork? NEVER! Besides: it was all Mustafa's fault.

    Did you fill in paperwork for the emergency you called in?

    Again, it's an hour long even with editing some blank comms out. YOu should be able to skip ahead again. This is my cockpit camera of 8 Nov 2018, this time with my audio. https://home.mycloud.com/action/share/68edb50e-be5a-43f7-8c78-3fa49838aeae
  10. MAG-31 Pilots, VMFAT-101 Sharpshooters, the Marine Corps F/A-18C FRS, now has skins in DCS as of the latest patch. From now on, all MAG-31 pilots will use the 'High Visibility' VMFAT-101 skin while in the 251 server. Once graduated from MAG-31, you will receive a 251 Livery with your name and callsign. All training maps will be loaded with a couple VMFAT skins at Al Dhafra and on the STENNIS for your use or you can select them prior to taking off, just note this may screw up LMAV use until the hotfix. Questions/concerns? Now go kill some sh/t! -Redd

    Two weeks later, they're here

    Hang out in discord with us Mac! I keep forgetting to put info here as well: the server mission has two scripted auto-lase JTACs at the normal range area (west of Al Dhafra) that are activated via F10 menu, they have separate laser codes! I need to fix the mission before the Mavs will work but I'll be home in a couple hours to get that done.

    Two weeks later, they're here

    What might be really cool is have two jtacs with different laser codes and different targets. One Hornet inbound, launch one Maverick on one target then immediately launch a second Maverick on a second target then egress. 60 seconds later, boom... then boom again!
  14. The 9x works great. The cage/uncage works but the helmet display shows the circle then you need to push the cage/uncage to get the 9x tone. Push it again, it unlocks. Re-locate the circle on the bandit, push the cage/uncage again and get the tone. You can lock and fire up to 90 degrees off boresight. Next, the Lmav. Set up the laser code to each Maverick OR different codes to each Maverick (box the UFC button to highlight one specific Maverick that you can STEP around OR box the UFC button twice to get ALL the Mavericks). Get jtac to lase (either via 9-line or however). Select a Maverick on the stores page that matches the jtac's laser code. From 16 miles away, either target designate OR have the Maverick scan. You will get a lock at no further than 16 miles. The Maverick will not make it the 16 miles if fired from Angels 5 but, from my tests, the Maverick WILL make it all the way from Angels 10. It might make it from a lower altitude (Maybe Angels 7?) I'll have to test more. I fired from Angels 5 with a good lock at 16 miles and the Maverick did launch. But it ran out of energy about a mile or so short of the target. BE ADVISED: there is NO warning that it failed to hit. (I wasn't watching the HUD to see if there was a Time To Impact.) There is no warning that it hit, either. Jtac just reported the hit.

    Happy Birthday!

    To our favorite Brit! We've all pitched in and decided to give you the JHMCS and LMAV's. They're not arriving until Wednesday, but just know they are on us. Happy birthday old man. Now get back in the cockpit and kill some shit.

    Probably the most exciting thing ever to happen in Belgium. Notoriously boring country.

    Guns, guns, guns!

    I wonder if they will credit the technician with two kills?

    Guns, guns, guns!

    This sounds like something straight out of a goofy military comedy, but I assure you this is real: a Belgian technician accidentally set of the cannon of a military plane during maintenance, which shot another plane. That plane blew up, damaging the initial plane in the process. Talk about a bad day. As reported by Aviation24.be, the event took place at the Florennes Air Base on October 11. A bunch of planes were being serviced, since some were heading off for a training mission. A technician in one of the F-16s accidentally hit that metaphorical big red button and activated its six-barreled Vulcan M16A-1 cannon. Presumably before he even had time to utter “oh, shit”, another F-16AM had burst into flames. This one had recently been fully fueled for a training run, and yes, the bullets hit the gas tank. Oops! And because the world is cruel, the blast from the exploding F-16AM also impacted the plane that delivered the shots. Unfortunately, two technicians were also injured during the blast. The full extent of their injuries isn’t known, but the Belgian Aviation Safety Directorate has opened an investigation to see what, exactly, they can do to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again, possibly with even worse results.

    Monday night fights

    29 Oct After doing a carrier trap with Nato, I went north to take on two F4E's. I fired at one who evaded and I thought he had splashed because he dove smoking to the water so fast. I focused on the second and took him out. I radar searched but couldn't find anything. F10 showed me that the first one I shot at was still up and running but heading up to Iranian land. I gave chase and we tangled. He got on my six so I forced an overshoot. Unfortunately, I couldn't maintain a lock enough to launch a 9x at him. Then I stopped dead in the sky with nothing to do except wait for the F-4's head on heater which took me out. Sorry, Geko, if I stomped all over your comms with my mayday. No, I did't leave in a huff. I understand. My wife came in (while I was struggling with getting out of my vertical stall) and demanded that I eat the chicken she cooked for me. (I asked Nato to make sure you knew I was not upset with you telling me to shut up! ) I am very glad we got some more pilots to keep carrier ops fun and complicated. Awesome realism! Good night everyone. See you Thursday night.
  24. Looking forward to chatting with you, Zipper, and welcome! We'll chat more on Discord when you get on. We have a flight this evening at 1900 EST, so many of us should be around.
