DCS Channel Map and Storm of War

Hi all, It is NOT likely that Storm of War will run missions on the Channel Map for the foreseeable future. There are a number of reasons for this: 1. There are still 20 or 30 missions to be built for the Normandy scenario/ campaign, I'm only up to June 14th at this point and we plan to have one mis...

Re: Help with the Spitfire

Assign to brakes to a slider, not a switch.
Having them on a wicth means theyre either "on" or "off".This isn'thow the spitfires brakes work. You need to be able to apply small amounts of brake in order to effectively steer on the ground.

Re: Anyone can drop a bomb

For example, in the Jun 10 Afternoon mission, there is an "easy-pickings" target at Azeville while there is an "oh-the-nightmare-deathtrap-horror" target at Grandcamp harbour, which is bristling with AAA, vehicles with AAA, ships with AAA and ships with vehicles with AAA. Been there, done that, bou...

Re: Anyone can drop a bomb

Can I ask, when flying Blue attacking a ground target, it seems to be more heavily defended with AAA, or maybe the gunners are a higher skill level? When flying Red attacking German targets I can strafe them for days without much return fire at all. Is this done on purpose or is my encounter not co...

Re: Anyone can drop a bomb

Found an interesting passage in "wing leader" about the 2nd TAF attacking fortified/ "strongpoints" around Caen prior to the final large bombing effort. I will use this information to build these kinds of targets for missions.

Re: Anyone can drop a bomb

Fortification At the moment, most targets are soft and exposed. German defences should include bunkers and fortifications. Of course, tanks are their own protection, but I understand the complications of using tanks in all areas. Good point... although the Atlantic wall (for which most of the WW2 a...

Re: Allied armaments and LW fuel proposal

Impossible to take out any Panzers without bombs or rockets. I understand your logic but a 15-20m transit is a pain in the arse. Would you consider having airborne "starts" half to two thirds of the way across the Channel with various mixes of rockets & bombs? It is only true for 2 out of 7 mission...
