DCS Screenshots

I will be highly disappointed if there is not relaxing formation flight through sunny hills and valleys done the music in the video.

@AeroMechanical For some reason I can’t seem to get used to the distance the bullets drop, I don’t remember what the default distance its aimed to is, but it seems really short. Its more likely me not knowing my systems and settings.

Getting back towards screenshots, another from last night;

Actually, my usual go-to music for flying the Mirage has been Caravan Palace- French Electro swing group. I’ll resurrect the "music to fly by"thread and toss some tracks in there.

A few more from the ongoing training…

While I love the Mirage, things were feeling kinda french around here so I figured I rarely fly the Su-27 (despite it meaning one of my favorite aircraft) So here’s a few shots from tonight.

The SU-27 always feels so raw to me, gobs of power and manouvrebility with the weapons to match. I’ve always preferred the more nimble planes like the Mirage, 29, and 21.

The Russian aircraft definitely always feel like they have a brute force component that is pretty awesome.

Because the AF is too responsible with its Eagles.

Despite making mission with JTAC’s before, tonight I just could not get it to work… so these shots are the consolation prize for me… I guess

Let Baquette fighter’s navigation systems night.

Aligning like there is no tomorrow

Set up a waypoint on the little hangar/platform north of Mineraly Vody, I will fly there from Nalchik.

I dun goofed up…

Well, nothing’s broken… let’s try anyway!

Hoorah, off we go

As you can see, the marking point is off, but I am pretty positive I could not input a wpt altitude, so that messes up the navigation system a little bit.

A little while later I have landed.

Damn right it is, although it will have a hard time competing with the Viggen once that is out, we can have a parade of delta wings with the Mig-21 included!

After seeing the video that @Tyco posted last night, I decided to break out the ol’ Su-33 for some carrier ops. Shot four takeoffs and landings… kinda scrapped on the last one but the plane survived lol

I can’t wait for that new kuznetsov model. I’ve always liked the 33.

1987. Day 1 of the War for Independence.

The Soviet backed goons on the other side of the border have gone the extra mile and brought in Soviet “advisors” to fly for their air forces.They have MiG-21s and 29s on their side of the border. The media says we’re outnumbered and outgunned. Soldier of Fortune even said we ‘only’ had F-5Es. Well, a fancy Air Force counts for little when it’s destroyed on the ground after fighters enter your AO. Fly low, hit hard.

There wasn’t much left of that base after we were done.

Discretion is the better part of valor.

The next morning, spotters on the border sighted Tu-22s and MiG-29s escorting. Once again, we ‘only’ had F-5s.

The tail gunner actually knocked out my right engine, but the asymmetric thrust isn’t so bad in a configuration where they’re packed together like this. The Tiger II is a superb light fighter. I’m sure the Soviets lack anything to match it.

Meanwhile, over the Indian Ocean…
