  4. All, We need all pilots to install SimpleRadio. SimpleRadio provides better comms. than TeamSpeak, and gives us line-of-sight, radio squelches, and most importantly the ability to utilize our UHF/VHF/in-cockpit radios. Here is the link for the install. Follow the directions in the forum post: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=169387 Once you have SimpleRadio up and running, make sure you 'preview audio.' Check that your mic is working AND that you can hear yourself speaking. You will only be able to test it fully once other pilots are online, with radios on. Favourites Add our IP to your Favourites in SimpleRadio (will be provided if requested). You will be able to connect to the server from the 'General' page. Once you do, click 'toggle radio overlay' to see which channels are active. Controls Bind desired HOTAS switches/buttons to Radio 1 & 2 Settings Turn radio effects on Radio Switch works as Push To Talk -- Set to ON

    Yeah it's good stuff! Here's an AMA from Harrier pilot. Some good stuff regarding take-off (typically short take-off instead of VTO because of stores) & landing conventions (vertical, but conventional landing if fuel state is low.) Also, AGM employment, typical cruise speeds, mission types, and landing pattern/procedures:

    Thought you might enjoy this podcast from a retired Navy (ok ok) F/A-18A-D pilot. I'm finding it entertaining and informative. He just released part 1 of a 3 part series on carrier ops. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-fighter-pilot-podcast/id1330534712?mt=2 Can be found on android/iphone apps as well. Enjoy

    Just so everyone knows, here is how to install the 476 Range Targets 22OCT17.zip: Unzip file to C:\Users\*yourname*\Saved Games\DCS\Mods\tech If that doesnt work try C:\Users\*yourname*\Saved Games\DCS\CoreMods\tech You may have to create the 'tech' folder under Mods before you unzip.

    Hi, my name/callsign is cranman. Greetings to all! I have some experience in DCS as well as Falcon BMS. Very much looking forward to flying the F/A-18C with a group that does things right! I know this is not the place for these types of questions - but - will VFMA-251 primarily fight/play against other VFWs, or will it be more PVE? Would love to have long, campaign-like flights against real players from an OpFor squadron.

VMFA-251 is a virtual DCS World F/A-18C squadron flying the Belsimtek/Eagle Dynamics F/A-18C module exclusively. We focus on real-world tactics as best we can within the DCS Wold environment.

VMFA-251 is not your run of the mill DCS World squadron.
