    Squadron Questions

    We need to get a check ride in first. Once officially accepted into the squadron you'll be granted access to the full forum, if you haven't already, then be given access to log your hours. We'll need to do the checkide on the Caucasus map, which wasn't up on the server yesterday, so I couldn't get that done for you.

    No reason really, just noticed it in your email address, which differed from your timezone.

    SSD is a must, as big as you can afford. Really cuts down on loading times and stops those stutters when over cities. Also helps with FPS. I couldn't fly without my Track Ir now. The guys who fly VR say they can never go back to Track Ir. VR must be amazing.

    Can you guys share with me, of what devices good to buy after the joystick of course? And is there are a need of SSD or a switch panel, trackclip?

    DCS and F/A-18C Updates

    Time for a little update! Much our Hornet work has been focused on an overhaul of the Hornet radar. As you might imagine, this has been a huge task, but it will be worth it for the Hornet and other aircraft. As of today, it's near impossible to shake a lock with just ownship maneuvers. Now we just need to have the radar RTS after lock loss and MEM mode times out. We've also started initial tests of the JHMCS in the simulation. The attached image is an image of the HMD at a VERY incomplete state. We are now adding more and more of its symboloy and functions. MK-83 Ballute and CBU-100 have been added internally. Speaking of CBU, the destructive power of anti-armor sub-munitions have been significantly increased, as well as the coverage footprint. The Flashing X on the radar has been when a person skips turning on the radar during a cold start has been fixed. Target lock in MPRF against short range, high-aspect targets has been corrected. AIM-7 HOJ is active development. New interactive training missions for CASE I recovery, AIM-9, and AIM-120 are now being created. Locked target HUD symbology jumping around has been addressed. TCN symboloy on HSI when viewed from a duplicate display has been fixed. Other items in the near-term cue: - HARM - LGBs - FPAS page - Automatic range scale adjustment - A/A Waypoint, BRA, and Bullseye functions - LWTS ATFLIR is also a high priority, but we first need to complete a an all new and improved FLIR rendering system.

    Redd, Mostly every working day starting from 17:00 (ZULU time), as written before, sometimes on weekends. I am following this forum, meaning I can easily reply back to you if you want to set the specific time during the day time.

    Squadron Questions

    Depending on when I get off I can be on. When are you normally available?

    Squadron Questions

    Hello, Redd. I do like the idea of MAG-31, as I'm currently at learning stage. I'm free to start it tomorrow about (By ZULU time) 16:00-17:00. What do I have to know to get started?
  17. Redd

    Squadron Questions

    Hello Chappie. Thank you for showing interest! We do prefer our new pilots have some basic familiarity with the Hornet and its systems. We can take you up for a check ride, which would consist of checking your ability to cold start, taxi and take off, basic systems knowledge (TACAN, radio, radar, EW, weapons basic functions), basic formation keeping, and landing safely. If you feel you have this down, we can go ahead and get you a check ride. If you do ok, great. If you need some work, you can hang out in MAG-31 in training status and fly with us until you are proficient enough to progress to the syllabus. We are mainly looking for pilots that have the motivation to train and learn offline, train with us online, and show up for squadron nights ready to perform. Ready?

    Squadron Questions

    Greetings pilots! Myself just got a Hornet module, at the moment I'm learing the documentation, and well.. How to actually fly it.) I do like the idea of your squadron, yeat I'm not a pilot in any kind. Thank you for making such a community group. Currently I do learning a module, cant ask you to help me out. Maybe one day will join you. For the interest of mine, how 'smart' you have to be to actually join your community? As I got some free time and desire to play in a team. (Time GMT +1, UK. I do have Teamspeak and much more). Myself has just joined the DCS world, I currently have only 19 hours at steam for this simulator, however I do have a small knowledge about aviation. I will follow this forum. Have a nice day anyway.

    Merci, mon ami!
  21. Gents, Sept. 15, 2018 Another week at VMFA-251 is coming to a close. We have had several happenings behind the scenes. First, we have reopened recruiting and pushed out our recruiting advertisement on the DCS Forums. In the meantime, we have added one new pilot, Broadway, to our ranks. So, I would like to welcome him to VMFA-251 and I look forward to meeting and working with him. We have had some interest in our MAG-31 area, which hopefully will bring a new prospective pilot. Alongside our new pilot, Beazle is back with us for the time being and is speeding through his syllabus work to get caught up, it is great having you back. We have missed our Frenchman! We are still determining a new Squadron day, which is looking to be Sunday more and more. As we hammer down the specifics we will move to using that as our third day for both training and operations. So, please look forward to that. Operations: We are wrapping up carrier training this week and are pushing steady into carrier qualifications. I am highly pleased to announce that our XO, Redd, has become the first carrier qualified pilot in VMFA-251, so congratulations and thank you for your efforts and hard work paving the way for us all. Geko has completed his night time qualifications and will next move on to day qualifications to complete his carrier quals. We do have a mission in store for this coming week that will incorporate much of what we do including a carrier launch, preplanned strike, some CAP, and finally carrier recoveries. Please be on the lookout for the date so we can get maximum participation and bring everything we have been working hard on together. After Carrier Quals, we are back into the A/G and A/A training focusing on CAS work and getting complete on our bread and butter missions. I for one am extremely ready to leave the boat behind and get into our combat training routine again. I will be working with Salt this week, getting him caught up and FAC-Qualified. End of the Week Notes: I have nothing to report on the maintenance front besides the Greenie Board is still being worked on. As for syllabus work, Mac has one item left to complete on 2000-Series, so hopefully that will be knocked out soon. Beazle has just his night systems and night refueling to complete as well. Nato and Broadway are in line to work on their 2000-Series and I look forward to seeing them getting through the pipeline. As we close in towards the end of the month, I want every pilot to be aware and on the lookout for award recommendations. We have a lot of great, dedicated people here who are working hard behind the scenes and are in here everyday, I want to ensure they get the credit they deserve for all their efforts. So, I expect to see a lot of these for the Command Staff to comb through. Alot of hours are being put in on the hours board, and I am always pleased to see it. Let's keep up the flying and the hard work. As a final note on hours, Geko and Redd have topped 100 hours each with their flying, which is a wonderful sign of their flying and dedication to date, so thank you both Gentlemen. That is about all I have for this week, excellent work and as always, I highly look forward to another week here at VMFA-251. V/R, Plague/CO VMFA-251

    Combat flite

    Im using it its amazing!!! You can creating your flight plan in the software than import it to a miz file or vice versa(not surw if vice versa is frenxh or english)! It creates a MDC very well made which you can modify and than you can simply press import in miz file and tada its now in your kneeboard in that particular mission!! I think it should be mandatory for our upcoming deployment to use it, do our breifing etc. Anyways this is the little use I've done so far but yes this will be a very very powerful tool. Beazle

    CQ3903: CASE III Recoveries

    Right now we are flying Wed nights and Saturday mornings and opening a third day, potentially starting this week on Sunday. So no worries, you will be able to make at least 2 of the 3 as per your schedule.
