It's not easy. . .
2850 RPM and leave the rad on auto.
Just modify boost between +4 for cruise, +9 for accelerating/ combat and +12 to 18 for emergencies.
Stay above 180mph indicated as much as you can . . getting slow results in engine-splosion

Turning left is much harder than turning right.. for some reason.
Diving is dangerous, the wings are prone to snaping off
The nose is unstable... it swings around when you apply control inputs, swaying about quite a lot like pendulum
Blackouts are severe and can have extremely sudden onset, quick enough in many cases to make corrective action impossible


Yup. I have experienced all of the above. I think the biggest lesson I need to learn is 'keep the speed up' as it seems to bleed very quickly in a tight turn then the spit handles like a bomber. I also blew my engine yesterday by letting myself get too slow while climbing.

Hi gents,

how long will the event run? I ask, because it looks like one of my boys cant come earlyer than 19:30 UK time, because of his job. When all things goes wrong, also my wingman Flügelbieger have privat duty to do :D :oops: .

So if i have to fly alone, could i get an 109 and not a Fw190, so i can wing up with Dietrich?

I think i will get this weekend the complet numbers.

Sorry for the work.

regards

Go for the leader, if you can. The path is the goal, the kill the result.
The one who has 12 leads. The one who has six follows.

Thanks all for joinin last night.
The mission still needs some tweaks, and once edited we can try to fly this one again.

1. Distances to target for both sides are too great. 54 Sqn had a 275km trip to the target last night!

2. I need to get the better visibility mod added so folks can see the dots from further out.

3. Ground targets are very hard to spot. I need to think of ways to improve this.

4. Some more Luftwaffe A.I. aircraft (maybe one additional section of 2) needed obver the target area, unless we have more humans.

5. Maybe some more clouds.. just a little bit.

Hi Phil,
You can set triggers to release smoke on the ground to highlight target areas. This can be done in conjunction with a JTAC or just so that when you get within a certain distance the smoke ppears for a time. I've been playing with this recently.

The conversation on TS last night started to head towards moving away fron WW2 for a bit and doing some different missions on a Thursday. I volunteered to try and make some missions with this in mind so I've started on a map with the following:

Blue
AJS37 Viggen x 8
F-86F Sabre x 8
Mirage 2000C x 4
A-10C x 4
Su25T x 4 (Georgia)
F-5E x 4
SA342M Gazelle x 4
Ka50 Blackshark x 4 (Georgia)

Red
TBC
Mig-15 x 8
Mig-21 x 8
Mig-29 x 4
Su-25 x 4
Su25T x 4
Mi-8 x 4
L-39ZA x 4

There are air defences, including SAM sites - which are also operated by trigger zones.
The map will have randomised triggers to keep people on their toes and I'll make a series of missions off a base map; this basically allows me to use a template map to make a series of missions from. I'm happy to add WW2 aircraft into another area of the map as well, if this is something that people want.

I think you got it mostly right Phil.

Obviously the radar screen showing where all the enemy aircraft are has to be turned off though even with that the defenders struggled to find us down low and were easily lost again when they did.

Yes the ranges were too great if using spitfires. I think all the spits ended up crash landing with empty tanks even when we used economy settings. 56 had a shorter distance and had we been able to fly straight to target and rtb immediately we would have just made it home but we had trouble finding the targets plus we had to come off economy settings when the 190s attacked, brief though the attack was.

I am not familiar with what DCS offers on map building. Is there a variable 'Fog Of War' so we get defenders get erratic info about enemy aircraft to simulate occasional updates from nearby ground units? Are there AAA units that can cause a lot of visible commotion without being unrealistically lethal? Perhaps have their accuracy greatly downgraded? Maybe triggering AI defenders that are not very dangerous but are enough to show the human defenders where to go? It was nice for us to be able to sneak in and out relatively unseen but I can see it was just frustrating for the 190s.
