    Welcome Dirty, sorry for late welcome. It's been a busy weekend for me. In your intro you didn't say what days and hours you are available. Let us know thanks. Our official training/mission nights are Tuesday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 1930EST.
  4. Highway


    No problem and thanks for the interest. Im sure Roman will be pleased to know you like his video series too.

    Whilst I don't want it to be a deciding factor if you would like to join or not, but I'm from the UK too, so you wouldn't' be flying alone at weekends. Unfortunately at the moment weekends are all I can fly, with some behind the scenes work during the week.

    Hi BritTorrent. We are US based too. We have 3 training nights, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Training usually starting at around 1930 Eastern, lasting around 2 hours. We do fly other nights, depends how many people are around. This would be quite late for you I'm imagining being a 5 hour difference

    SAM evasion Hornet

    Well if Geko and Redd can work their mission magic on the SAMs, I for one have no idea of what will be launching at what range. And that's very exciting and scary. Which leads me back to my original point, why take the risk? Let the Harms do their thing.

    That sound brilliant Geko. Can't wait to Recon Flight a mission like that and give everyone the bad news.

    SAM evasion Hornet

    I have no problem with Mac practising the Pop Up on SAMs. What I was trying to get across is don't practice something and then expect it to be the same in one of our future missions. Things are hidden and surprises raise their ugly head at the worst moments. Just a heads up that's all.

    I think Geko mentioned that he might be able to trigger/script them like you describe Mustafa. Either way I'm all for realism. Quick question. For those of us with Combined Arms, can we operate a SAM system and make it like we are flying lead? Anotherwords, give them orders? Or do we have to constantly swap our "vehicle" and do it all ourselves?

    SAM evasion Hornet

    Coming from an OPsO point of view, you won't be finding SA3s or any other SAM, sat in the middle of nowhere, nice and unguarded for you to fly over and bomb. I'm hoping when the HARM arrives, you will use it for what it is, a stand off, high speed weapon, and then only going forward into a target area to bomb using a Hard Deck to avoid AAA, only after SAM threats have been neutralised. SEAD may not be the most exciting tasking, but it's an important one. Less.of this heroic Rambo approach of getting SAMs to fire, only to go in close and drop bombs on them. No disrespect Mac but we saw how much that tactic didn't work out in Desert Crystal. To reiterate, SAM systems will be properly defended by other SAMs and AAA.

    Geko, Mac & Redd.
  13. You firstly have to set up Comms 1 & Comms 2 from the DCS Controls page. Pick a keyboard button or a button on your HOTAS. Then, if the tanker freq isn't one of the Radio Presets, go to channel M on either Comms 1 or 2 and input the freq manually.

    Thanks Redd, I will try Auto in a dive.

    DCS 2.5/Hornet Updates

    CCRP (AUTO) bombing is fairly inaccurate at the moment Mac, several of us have tried with bombs usually falling 50-100m from target. Hopefully it will get some love in a future update.
