During the Mudspike DCS World Fly-In this weekend, Mudspike will be also hosting our first Massively Coordinated Event (MCE). MCEs are large-ish scale events that emphasize planning and multiplayer coordination to achieve common goals (or just unbridled chaos and wanton destruction, depending on the participants). Like the Fly-In events, the vision is to have future MCEs for many of the simulations that we love here at Mudspike.
For this first MCE we will be flying @near_blind’s Down Town Krasnodar mission which pits the forces of NATO against the Russians.
Pushed past the tipping point, NATO and Russian forces are embroiled in all-out war in the Caucasus arena. NATO has authorized a pre-emptive strike deep into Russian territory, targeting railyards that are resupplying the enemy front.
Player-flown Mirage 2000Cs will deliver the strike, escorted by Player-flown F-15Cs. Player-flown Su-25Ts will help clear a path by knocking down any Russian SAMs that poke their heads up.
There are no Red player units in this mission.
This MCE will kick off at 1200 CDT (1700Z) on Saturday, April 16th, with a quick Mission Overview and then individual flight briefs. The mission will start around 1300 CDT (final time to be announced at the Mission Overview) and should last a good two hours.
We need YOU! to volunteer to a flight slot! In this thread, please indicate which flight you’d like to join (see list below). To ensure everyone is placed to the best of our ability, please give first, second, and third preferences.
