  3. Kameraden, As mentioned last night online, John Boyko has written "The Devil's Trick: How Canada Fought the Vietnam War". My big brother Doug Carey 1st Div. 27th Bat. Marine Corp has a chapter about his involvement. One amazing thing that happened was Doug's friend (Dane Brown) found a photo that was lost in time since I think 1968, we've not seen this one before. Notice the high tech gear being used by the tunnel rat (Doug). S!

  5. S! All, I would like to congratulate (3) members of JG1 for fighting again over France (in Flying Circus), for the last 4 weekend in the J5 Spring Offensive - Operation Michael. It was a blast to share some great moments with JG1 pilots and many other squadrons pilots playing on the Entente side. Special congrats to: - JG1_Lee (mostly 2 seater in sectors B and C) - JG1_Hotlead (mostly fighter in different sectors) - JG1_GenMarkof (mostly fighter in sectors B and C) After some great aerial fights, here are a few overall numbers for this campaign: 706 planes downed

    Not sure if anyone noticed but RAZBAM recently changed the order of their module listing on their Discord. It used to be farther down on the list. Now its immediatly below 3 already released modules. Hmmm anything to be taken from this change? Let the speculation begin...

    Practice night BlueFlag infiltration! Baby steps, but damn I'm glad I know how to use the doppler navigation! Cue Ride of the Valkyries! CAS on station and good effects! This mortar team really did have a great spot, they pounded the enemy FARP.

    While we are on the topic of family heirlooms: I still have a clock which used to belong to my grandfather. The details are a bit muddled (he died when I was three years old so I couldn't ask him myself) but according to my mum he took it out of his own or his friends Bf 109 after he or his friend crash landed over france. According to "family legend" the clock still shows the time of the crash since nobody has fiddled with it since. Its a Junghaus J30Bz. It doesnt work and the brezel as well as a lever below the knob on the button has been broken off.

  9. S! All, Until we get the Sd.Kfz. 10/5 Flak 38 (20mm) Vehicle Mounted Anti-Aircraft Gun... We are trying to see if we can use the GAZ-MM truck for multiplayer campaigns or missions with lock skins for the Germans and the Russians. These photos were taking after a 15 min test I did tonight... I will change the Russian camo so we can have a more distinct visual between the German and the Russian truck. ps: numbers are from IL2 game (edit by the player in the setup of the truck)! ------ Russian skins

    One of the moment I never forget is the low-level full-thrust flyby of Su-22 three-plane formation, when I was on the last military airshow in the town I live. I spotted them early, they got bigger and bigger but there was no sound. Then they flyby some 50 m away and just a moment later deafening bang came behind them. Regarding the MiG-23 - this Beauty is on the stand at the airfield gate here, in Ceske Budejovice: You can see it right here: https://www.google.com/maps/@48.9518622,14.4529139,163m/data=!3m1!1e3

    I feel I would be spending a lot of time in a Su-22 if they ever made one as I do prefer ground attack to air to air in DCS or indeed any sim. Fighter pukes make movies - bomber pilots make history and that kind of shit....!

    From training, last night: Yes, I was high but I managed to still land. Fog is really difficult to see the runway environment without some sort of REIL or approach lighting system.

  16. Title says it all, it's a hefty patch chaps so better download somewhat ahead of time if you plan on flying. Patch notes: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/news/changelog/openbeta/2.7.0.4625/ On a side note, the DCS 2.7 launch/Spring sale is now live for the standalone version of the sim, up to 50% off most modules! Tempted by the Viper tbh.

  20. So here's a fun one....I decided to try my hand at something a little more 'Hunnish' and found possibly the most enraging skin to attempt in the history of FC..... The Albatros tail section (particularly the closer you get to the tail) is especially irritating to work with on the best of days, and diagonal lines tend to be a real headache....so this Bavarian pattern is turning out to be a real nightmare to try and apply. After starting over at least 7 or 8 times I finally decided that the only way to go about it would to be to individually place the blue squares (pretty laborious ta

    The Truth About Rotaries

    Radial... yes. Rotary... no. Wikipedia: In the years leading up to World War II, as the need for armored vehicles was realized, designers were faced with the problem of how to power the vehicles, and turned to using aircraft engines, among them radial types. The radial aircraft engines provided greater power-to-weight ratios and were more reliable than conventional inline vehicle engines available at the time. This reliance had a downside though: if the engines were mounted vertically, as in the M3 Lee and M4 Sherman, their comparatively large diameter gave the tank a higher silhouet

    So take a break from the forum for a couple of days and this thread shows up... Suddenly everyone's gotten very excited. Okay, let's address these one by one... @Klaiber, I never knew about that MiG-17 project, I'm really excited for it! Looks like a good match for the upcoming F-8 and A-6. We're about halfway towards building a sensible lineup of Vietnam-era warbirds. Now, if someone could please make the naval F-4 as well as the F-105... I wouldn't mind an early Fishbed either. @Yogi, I'd like to be excited about Razbam's progress with the Flogger, but a) they have

  30. Just fell into this deep-dive playlist with my renewed interest in the Mi-8, due to the impending Mi-24 release. It's a refreshing series that goes a lot deeper than the majority of YT content. It doesn't just show you how, but why.

  31. I bought Syria last night, spent forever downloading it so didn't really get to play it until today. Holy hell... WOW! After flying on the Caucasus for so many years this is a real step up in fidelity. Frame rates seem to be alright too all things considered, so much low down detail flying the Mi-8 over Damascus and towards the Golan Heights etc was a real treat. The Hind is going to be unreal fun on this map, same goes for any low level work. I hope somebody does a full IAF paid campaign with voice overs etc, so many historical events you could cover with the IAF's F-16 fleet.

    Had a Su-22 intercept one of our drones over Syria. The controllers told them that a fast mover was approaching from a certain angle and they turned the camera to look, got a great shot of it. They thought it was a MiG-21 until I saw the video during the debrief and corrected them.

  45. Your summary is absolutely correct in all aspects. It is meant to be a more structured PUG alert. General chatting in the sections but nothing too serious because it isn't as easy to search on Discord, as it is here on the forum.

    The Mirage 2000C, with all the influence from Escadron 2/5, I have to believe it has a lot of realism implemented. Way beyond what the armchair pilots complain about on the forums.

    S! All For session 3, in the middle battle area the 3 flags are all out in the open. There are no landmarks to help you find them. So, a building with a tower was placed in the vicinity of the North and South flags.

    I want this module so bad xD. I have a real soft spot for the Flogger. It was the first aircraft I made as a model kit with my dad when I was a wee lad and I've had a fascination with it ever since. This game sorely needs more high fidelity REDFOR aircraft and this will be a really great addition for Cold War servers, give those F-5's something to think about xD.
