I jumped into DCS this morning, to install the Garmin 430 and do the tutorial - decided to have a look at this mission.
I’ve never taken off from a boat in a fixed wing in DCs World, so I was a bit clueless as to how it goes - never sat here before
I decided to go at it Strike Fighters 2 style - brakes on, full throttle, brakes off, pray…
but first two attempts ended thus:
So, for the thrid go, I got clever! Turned around and taxiied right up to the back edge of the deck, so I had the longest stretch of hard top in front of me.
And… it worked!
Did a few circuits, but there was no way I was going to attempt a landing without first at least some idea of what to do. I’ve done some touch and goes in the Su-25, but this thing is a lot quicker.
