Re: New Syria Map

If Lebanon is on the map and i think it was, the Tomcat got into some tussles there in the 80s escorting Intruders and filming via TARPS.

Re: Advanced Training

So, then we're flying with dot labels on for sure then? Haha, maybe even full labels? Because it is now "realistic."

Re: Voice attack/Viacom

OK, This is kinda a bland video but I was tweaking things more in VAICOM PRO and ran another mission. It is working better now but I have to learn the mechanics of the command lines as I'd like to change things. Plus VAICOM can get confusing with Supercarrier comms...I was circling Marshall for 3 ti...

OK, I have a few things ironed out. Will continue testing and streamlining it and see how it goes further!

Debrief Operation Snowfox 07.08.20

Video is here: https://youtu.be/SsbuZM0P0Pw Witness the power of the Tomcat with Phoenix missiles, firing 4 AIM-54s in pitbull at 4 targets at close range at 10:08! Not much to debrief as I was late and we switched missions. Grifter got the primary and did great switching to air to air and killing t...

Re: Voice attack/Viacom

OK, I went through the voice training process for VAICOM Pro with AIRIO. Then I gave it a test run: https://youtu.be/5KrZ9aaG7z0 This is an intercept that turned into a furball. I have flares programmed to a button on my HOTAS, but when flying the Tomcat, this button controls the flaps. Silly me tri...

Debrief: Operation SnowFox Destroy Boat Bunker 07.06.20

There Smada was, hit hard by enemy fire, miraculously unscathed but with a damaged aircraft..."Jester? Jester?" And now a dead RIO. Knowing he was in trouble, especially no one to operate the radar and weapons BVR, he turned for home. Suddenly a shaft of light shined into the RIO seat of the cockpit...

Re: Voice attack/Viacom

Well I decided to take the leap and buy Vaicom Pro. I bought it as a bundle so it has the chatter extension too...if I bought everything but chatter separately, it would have cost more. Been messing around with it...I think I need To actually know what is available to me to speak. Those who have it,...

Re: Mon, 7/6, Another bunker

I will be a latecomer so I guess Escort as Chevy is all that will be left. Otherwise, will join as needed.

Posted this earlier but don't see it now for some reason, so "repost" I am testing VoiceAttack out. SO far it does the job, I don't see a need for AIRIO yet. PLus it's free if you are fine with only having one profile. $10 if you want the full version (which I got): https://youtu.be/OsIWxBdzxwY v6, ...

Here's my first run test: https://youtu.be/OsIWxBdzxwY I found a free profile (Bailey) that works out pretty well...putting it through its paces. If it does what I need, I don't see much point in buying AIRIO just yet Oh, and VoiceATtack is free if you can work with only one profile. If you want mor...

Re: Debrief Operation Snowfox 07.01.20

Thanks. Autopilot isn't exactly a flip the switch kind of thing in the Tomcat though, like it is in the Hornet. In fact, you have to flip 4 switches, in addition to the pinky button as well as making sure your SAS switches are engaged...so sometimes using AP hinders what you have to do too. I'm expe...

Re: 7/1, Bunker Buster Battle Damage Assessment

Here is something to consider: The F-14 has been historically a great recce-in-force aircraft with the TARPS pod. I don't know if you all are familiar with it but it basically gives the Fleet a recon ability, but with a strike capability as well (The F-16 copied us, haha). That would be perfect for ...

Re: DCS Spotting and Somewhat of Fix?

I will add something of consideration: WE may change the dots to greyu to make it more realistic/difficult to positively ID the bandits as hostile, but will the AI take the same handicap? No, since they are AI. SO we are giving them the advantage of not being able to tell if they're hostile or not, ...

Re: Wednesday 7/1 Package begins 0100 ZULU

Hmm...if I make it in time for the first mission can take Dodge or Pontiac as needed. If not I can do Chevy on Alert 5. For the second mission I can do either Dodge or Pontiac. I can also take the Tomcat, load up some TALDs and help the SEAD guys decoy the SAMs and AAA for killing. Actually I think ...
