Flying on a mission with the Duma boys last night, while @near_blind, @klarsnow, and the rest of the millennial military industrial complex resident at MUDSPIKE were crunching neurons at a blistering pace, their fingers dancing on HOTAS and over DDI, chipwich stumbled along ham-fistedly trying to remember things like Master Arm on will allow things to come off of the jet, and oh crap the bad guys are shooting one, no two, no three SAMs at us. Somewhere in the second mission things began to come together a little better and I discovered how much the SA page is a game changer.
Being able to loiter outside the major threat circles, even if they are static ME objects, while the bad-asses completed their SEAD tasking was really a caveman logic level tactic that I could follow. Question, and I haven’t really RTFM for the SA, will they every be dynamically updated via data link or some other method? I’m beginning to grasp the necessity of rapid information sharing in the battlespace.
