DCS Series Flight Sims / Re: Voice AttackProfile for F14 RIO
« on: March 17, 2019, 08:20:02 am »
Nice Find SD.

I installed the free version of Voice attack last night, I have been thinking Voice attack would be the way to go before the module came out.  I only set up a couple of commands to test it out but I am please with with how it is working.  The first command was to SST lock a target, I am setting it a little different than Bailey, I am not walking thru the steps, I am setting it up so the whole action is executed in one command, so for example "Lock Target" hits keys "A" "LCTRL 2" "LCTRL 2" and Jester locks the target.  The Jester wheel flashes briefly but really it only takes a second or less.  I think this is going to be very useful with scanning the various areas of the sky.  One of the things I noticed flying the F-14 on BF was that it was a lot time and effort to move the radar scan around do I was looking at everything around me, this should make that process much easier and faster. while not having the view blocked by Jesters wheel nearly as much.  Once I have the profile flushed out I will share.

Yes she is definitely a handful, the best way to describe it in my book is analog.   No FBW system to keep you from doing stupid $hit, which is fun.  I ran some of the instant action missions on the Nevada Map for dog-fighting and against the Mig 21 and 23 she is pretty competent.  I have the WVR modes sorted, and they are not bad, but the AIM 9 is a pain in the butt to lock, even with the Radar locking the target.  Not sure if I am doing it wrong or if there is a trick..

Trapped on my second attempt at a case one (just went for it to try), but I think there was a fair bit of luck involved.

I am getting the impression that I am going to have to sit in the RIO position for a bit to really understand the Radar.  The Jester communication system with the Tracker IR is cool, but in a air to air battle shortcuts or voice attack are going to be the only way to really go as the menu system is too slow in a fight.

You need to turn on IFF on the UFC.  It was not mentioned in Matt's video.


DCS Series Flight Sims / Improvment but not a game changer
« on: March 02, 2019, 06:44:14 am »
The new IFF and Data link are a SA improvement for the F-18 but not a game changer.  I flew it a bit last night offline and online.  There is a pretty significant bug where ghost planes stay on the SA page giving a cluttered view.  Also as Wags mentioned you can have the SA page up on a DDI but it works better on the AMPCD: when I had the the SA page on the right DDI I frequently turned my radar off as the selected sensor because right on the sensor select switch on my favorite set up (radar on left DDI EW/RWR on the right DDI) locks a target while with the SA page on the right; I dont lock a target I inadvertently choose the SA page as the primary sensor.   With the SA page on the AMPCD it draws your attention down into the cockpit and not out of the canopy, when flying the F18 pilots are going to have to be disciplined and not spend too much time looking at the AMPCD.  Lastly the IFF info is not displayed on the Radar screen like all the other aircraft, which is honestly more of a problem than it sounds.  I am sure the correct model with have targets IFFed on the Radar display, but until then if you put the SA page on the AMPCD and are IFF from there just glace at it.

Purchased the 19.

Will update and download when I go home for lunch.

Nice!  We will have to see how she does against the F-5 (I think the Mig 19 will be a killer).

I am holding off at the moment, too much to fly and not enough time.  That said next time they put up the Cold war BF caucuses we should fly some Mig 19 and 21 sorties!

Ram, in any Multiplayer server in DCS if the Hanger Doors do not open when you Spawn in you need to choose another spawn point.  This is not a BF problem there is something wrong with that Spawn point in the Game.

There are some things that everyone should know about Blue Flag:

Fighters Spawn with Zero Fuel, and certain air frames such as the F-18 do not like it if you try and start it with no fuel.

There are Weapons restrictions on both sides, it is clearly stated at the start of each sortie and there is a self loadout evaluation in the radio menu under F10.  If you dont fly Blue Flag on a regular basis you should Validate your load out before you take off.

There are a couple of planes that are fast to get in the air, the Harrier starts will full fuel and can be airborne in a couple of minutes.

Blue flag is a lot of fun but it takes some understanding of how the server works to truly enjoy it. It is not the servers fault or the airframe's fault that you dont know how it works.

And the Plot thickens...       

Dear pilots,

With the DCS: MiG-19P Farmer by RAZBAM Simulations to be released this Friday, 1 March 2019, we will be shifting our Open Beta release to Friday this week instead of the usual Wednesday. A benefit of this is that we’ll now have time to also release an eagerly awaited new Eagle Dynamics feature! Let the speculation run wild!

I hope they get this out for Wednesday!

About time!


DCS Series Flight Sims / Blue Flag Cacucasus is running 60's/70's
« on: February 24, 2019, 10:07:33 am »
Blue Flag Caucasus is running the 60's/70's scenario.   It is F-5, F-86 A-10A vs Mig-21, Mig-15, Su-25 and Viggen plus choppers.  It is a lot of fun and not as intense as regular BF.  You can get in and hit stuff more often than not before you are intercepted, and helicopters are much more survivable as they are very hard to spot with the eye.   Also there are no Radar SAM sites.  I have been flying blue, but would be open to Red when the map flips.

It is good fun, hope to see you guys in there.

When you were looking at the Diamond, was it within the pitch ladder of the HUD?  If the contact you are "IFFing ( I use that term loosely here as the stop gap system we have is not actually IFFing) is not within the pitch ladder of the HUD the system does not work.  Also it can take several seconds for the system to reconcile, I have seen it take over three seconds. 

That said the system does suck, and it makes the Hornet a bit of a liability in crowded Battle spaces.
