    SAM evasion Hornet

    I know many of you are already aware of surface threats, and I am a bit late to the convo after my computer died. But I plan on getting a full integrated air defense systems (IADS) mini-paper together for training. The reason being that hardly ever would a single site be faced without integrated and overlapped systems. Examples exist without integrated air defense, of course, usually after degradation of both civilian and military infrastructure, which required strikes and surface threat suppression or destruction. I plan to cover multiple examples from DS in the early 90s to Yugoslavia in the 90s (masterful use of D&D: deception/denial, A2/AD: anti-access/area denial), what we see today in IADS in multiple 'threat' nations and the air campaigns that followed. This is a bit of my wheelhouse professionally when it comes to EW-ELINT/SIGINT/MASINT. So I will try to do that soon without making it too dry or cumbersome. The key will be a way to integrate and simulate all these complexities into a mission and into our training. I want it real, challenging, tough, and hard to accomplish. 100% This.
  2. Just finally got to listen to this while writing an endless paper on ICS/Mass Casualty Incident Response, and another on Maritime Security Threat Vectors (fml). Great interview overall. I have to say, probably my favorite one he has done so far. I think the ending he gave talking about war was so on point and true. It kind of brings it all back into perspective, all that we do here...Anyways, pretty cool listening to him explain everything and being able to follow along with what he is doing in the situation, had to stop a few times from my writing and listened to what he talked about doing. Started picturing it in my head being in the Hornet in DCS lol.

Added missing North Up and Decentered modes of the AMPCD digital map. GUI music update. Radar scan parameters are updated now only when the radar is not in track, when the new A/A weapon is selected. TDC press+release now returns the radar to search mode from all applicable modes (RWS/VACQ/BST/WACQ). TDC press+release and undesignate switch press now reset the radar ACM condition (with certain exceptions). Pressing boxed ACM on the radar format now returns the radar to search (in addition to resetting ACM condition). When a new A/A weapon is selected the radar track mode is retained now. If the gun was selected as A/A weapon, pressing undesignate in all ACM modes, as well as TDC in BST/VACQ, always returns the radar to GACQ mode. BST/VACQ/WACQ modes, when selected with A/A gun, now override GACQ mode. It can be observed after the radar breaks lock. RTS commanded by pilot instead always reverts to GACQ. Fixed mixed/lost modes symbology in ACM. Was especially noticeable with missing GACQ circle after RTS was performed or break lock occurred. Engine start with ground air source. Added input for station jettison selection buttons. Different RPM indication on DDI and IFEI fixed. CCIP mode is designating a target at weapon release which switches the MODE to AUTO - fixed.

    Once you have access to the forums, if you could navigate to the S-1 forum and find the "Best Availability" post, and give your normal schedule for when you would be free to fly, that would be excellent. That will give us an idea on when you are free to fly and we can get you a Senior Pilot/On-wing assigned to get your Checkrides and FAMs done. Thanks!

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.
