(DCS) Blue flag is up - Blue or Red, make your choice

Have they tried shooting them down?

It’s a got four missiles and a delta wing. It’s not magic.

EDIT: Oh wow. They’re complaining they can’t get kills with the most effective heater in the game and that the Super 530D is better than the R-27.

There is no balancing that can fix this. The only cure is to get gud


Is the mi8 on both sides again now? I changed to red last time to get some ugly duckling action.

I crashed one Hip last night for the Reds. The stuttering was too much…


I crashed a Huey for the same reason. The first pause was 10 seconds and my Huey was still up! The next pause was 5 seconds and I found myself looking at a black screen. These long pauses seem to occur when someone joins the server.

LOL @smokinhole … my first pause was like 30s in the hover before landing near a village in the middle of the route as I had to leave the PC for a minute. I was able to miraculously live through this with slight increase of power.
The second pause was like 5-10s in transition to hover at Novorosysk. In this short period I fell into the VRS with no chances to recover - my fault - too high to survive too low to change for speed :beers:

Sooo… how to put it !? I think this is good :

I would like to try again BF but I am not an Lonewolf and also I need someone who will help me with all the behind-the-scenes mechanics of BF.

That said is there a chance that we could manage to form a small laid-back team to gather lets say once a week for some BF goodnes?

I am thinking about something easy for the behining like helicopter company or second gen fighter co.
I dont think I can buy Bug / JumpJet tomorow and be ready in a week to fight :slight_smile:

Day and time I am available ? For me any day can work from 19:30UTC except Wednesday. On Wed I can do it from 21:30UTC.
But the times are not fixed, I am flexible :slight_smile:

Pls do not hesitate to post your coments or ideas.

to coment my last post, yep I am lonewolfing on BF :slight_smile:

Just wanted to mention that there was Cold War planeset on BF Caucasus and it was great. I hoped it will stay like that - Cold War on Caucasus and Modern War on Persian Gulf.
Unfortunately Caucasus is back to standard planeset.

Excellent news. Persian gulf means I get the cat, mirage and the HIP. !!! Wooo !


Well, just checked and the AIM7 is back in. Tomcat can tomcat now !!! Time to Blue Flag !!!


I’ve had horrible luck with the F-14 in Blue Flag. Honestly I gave up. Jester has his limits. I took out a friendly when I clipped a Pheonix and it went mad dog and I said to myself, “that’s it!” Until we get full front-seat mastery if the radar, the F-14 is, for me, single-player only unless humans occupy both seats. Stated another way, the more I play DCS the worse I get.

Your not alone there @smokinhole I’ve stopped playing online and focused on the actual training and personal flying and I’m having a lot more fun at the moment.

Correcto, realy useful gadget. Hopefuly one day this will be standard DCS feature. Guessing that with dynamic campaign this will be must !?

Out of curiosity, how does Blue Flag server work? Is this a scripted multiplayer campaign hosted on a server? If yes, is it scripted using Moose / Mist or does it go deeper? Is it supported somehow by ED?

I really enjoy flying the harrier online. Also the extra traffic and noise makes doing nav exercises in the sabre a lot of fun. However the tomcat has such a low fps online for me that it gives me a savage headache after 15mins or so. Its pretty smooth on single player but my poor old pc really feels the heat online bless her lol
