Just to confirm we need SRS installed and running for tomorrow's op? (no option as TS as backup?)

Never used it before so need to get it installed and figured out. Presumably that also means each package and Top Hat will be on a different radio frequency too?

TS will be there as a backup.
Ideally each flight would have one person who can use SRS to send coms back and forward across public channels.

SRS is worth getting a handle on in any case. It's superior to TS in a few ways.

You can use TS and SRS simultaneously. Set a PTT button for SRS and set a different one for TS. You can communicate with Top hat using SRS and you can communicate within a flight with TS. I’ve done this several times with SRS and Discord and it works well. Phil that’s the way I recommend using it, have SRS for “Top Hat” so that all can hear the bogey dope and reply to “Top Hat” when needed. Use TS for communication between squad members in a flight. This keeps down Top Hat comms to what’s important and still allows squads to communicate.

Yes, this is what I have in mind.
TS for people to talk within their own flight/ squad
SRS for a global tophat channel.

If you're in the Harrier you can do all of that in SRS, I believe, as you have two radio channels. I've never been able to test it though, as I've never had anyone on SRS and when I tried to test it on a server the channels didn't match any of the presets in the Harrier and you couldn't adjust them! Ha! Can now though!

Will the frequencies be listed in the briefing?

Ok - got SRS installed. No idea how it works as a overlay in VR but will give it a try.

Harrier pre-briefing thoughts...

Ship strike.

As noted on other thread, SIDEARMS and Mavs can be used by small warheads just tickle it. I have been testing a toss-bomb attack using DMT & Mk83s (similar to this) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=os9oyqxoTPQ

Acquire target with DMT sensor, drop to ultra low level, run in at the speed of a thousand gazelles, pull to 30deg climb approx 4.5nm out and hold pickle button as consent line crosses bom line, (dropping 4 Mk83s at once) and then pump chaff and dive for the deck. Unlike LGBs you don't need to worry about masking the TGP if self-lasing or your wingie being shot down if they are lasing for you at 8-9nm from target. (Pre smart weapons the Harrier ARBS computer is phenomenally accurate for dumb weapons delivery, but you need to account for the fact it is targeting the ground/surface rather than the object/ship itself. My last test run I got the bomb stick just feet behind the ship - I think it would have probably been a DH had I aimed the DMT slightly bit 'in front' or underneath the ship.)

This was all SP/offline testing so buddy lasing and using GBU-16s in a pop-up loft profile might also work too, but its dependent on the laser a/c having line of sight to the ship AND being within 9nm of target. Could be a long time when a HQ-16 missile is on its way!

Still working on release interval (30, 100ft?) but I did manage to get 1 Mk83 on target and survive using this method. (Sochi gives plenty of urban cover with the frigates SAMs hitting buildings if you stay low)

So ship a tricky target, but can potentially be dealt with if we skilled/lucky and may assist the Viggens in killing it if we are popping up behind hills etc and running it out of missiles.

Downsides is its approx 250nm from our home plate. So its gonna mean fuel tanks (reducing bombs/missiles), hot refuel at a base closer to the target or AAR and a long transit to get there. To coordinate our attack with the much faster/closer Viggens might take a lot of hanging around too. If we are also aiming to maximise our chances we want to strike from different directions too.

Insurgent camp (Romeo-India)

Much more our cup of tea. Soft vehicles and light AAA - BUT it is 35nm east of Nalchick where we have a suspected SAM battery. Worst case - its a S300PS with 50nm range and therefore are just inside their SAM umbrella. Should be easy to dodge them that far away as they will be low on smash but something to think about if we are circling high above that camp plinking AAA with LGBs and heads down looking at our TGP screens.

Anyhow, just my 2penneth ahead of the op. Hopefully temps don't get too high today and make frying my PC a possibility tonight...

Guard Freq will be the main one used.
It seems we wot have a tophat tonight, so we'll just have to coordinate among ourselves.
