I spend forever trying to find a good thread to append these to … so instead I will make another one! Please forgive me but I will try to keep all 1.5.x change-logs in this thread from now on :slight_smile:

F-15C: The Georgian War campaign

8 August 2008. The Russo - Georgian war catches four USAF F-15Cs and their crew in Georgian territory. American pilots came to present their jets before a possible purchase of several machines by the small state in South Caucasus.

Although inspired by true events, this fictional campaign puts player in a cockpit of F-15C Eagle. Throughout 16 missions in the space of several days, he will help the Georgian forces face much more numerous and better equipped foe.

Careful now. @Fridge doesn’t like discussion in his changelog threads.

That’s not necessarily true … I am just adverse to them getting sidetracked :slight_smile:

Yeah no, don’t worry, write stuff like that… it’s not like my scumbag brain tells me it happened and gave me a heart attack.

I think that the best indicator of that is going to be a 2.5 Open Alpha release thread :slight_smile:

So…are the dual pizzas part of the 1.5.7 update then, or is that also pending 2.5?

Nice find!!
Those Viggens were from F15 Hälsinge Flygflottilj, the base where I served as a mechanic…
In the movie they flew out of a forward base on the island of Gotland, in the Baltic sea.

No Su33 PFM? I thought that was August. (Smokin’ Hole runs to the corner, sits hugging his knees and cries into his folded arms. Best to stay away until his tantrum subsides. )

You Mean 2.5, w/ Caucasus 2.5, and 1.5 going bye bye like 1.2

[EDIT: Figured it out. I had to close Oculus. Go Figure…)

Is anyone getting this update yet (8pm US-East 8/23)? I complained that I wasn’t seeing “Buddy Spike” on the DCS server browser and a guy on the forum asked if I downloaded “today’s” update.
