  1. Not quite true. It's an excellent target rifle chambered for a superior cartridge, but as a military arm it suffers from a fragile stock (the piece of wood under the receiver and magazine is very thin), a fairly weak locking system (especially compared to the Mauser), rather slow loading (Krag speedloaders weren't used by the Norwegian military) and, most damningly of all, excessive production cost.
  2. Awwww crap... I had to set some money aside for car maintenance and have to wait until the next paycheck to free up some funds for such purchases. I need the 1 TB version to replace my current 250 GB M.2 drive. The performance is spectacular (and it's fantastic value for money), but like you I'm constrained by the lack of space for new modules (right now I have something like 15 gigs of free space available with 2 modules not installed).
  3. "Vertoloty v vozdushnom boyu" ("Helicopters in aerial combat"), a 1989 instructional film for helicopter crews produced by the Soviet Ministry of Defense. Could be useful for future DCS: Mi-24 pilots. Note the R-60 launcher @5:35!
  4. I've just logged in to ED forums to find that I'd been permanently banned. After the initial shock and disbelief I Googled it and found out that there's been a major server issue on ED's part. All you need to do to fix this is log out and back in again. https://forums.eagle.ru/forum/english/customer-support/forum-and-site-issues/7142217-re-login-for-fix-you-have-been-permanently-banned#post7142296
  5. Every day is a good day to post a MiG-29 video.
  6. Perfect timing, I was about to sit down with a pint and enjoy the rest of the evening.
  7. This is great! Feels so weird to see to many MiGs on American soil...
  8. True, they seem to have their priorities right.
  9. Note that they omitted question 10 - "After the success of the 21, is M3 looking into doing another Redfor module, like the MiG-25, 29 or Su-17?". Cap then said in the comments they had to drop it for legal reasons... Undisclosed new Redfor modules coming?
  10. Fascinating stuff! I'll forward this to a Serbian friend of mine, who happens to be a bit of a Fishbed fan.
  11. As someone who corrects other people's writing for a living - thank you.
  12. Oh boy... The movie is an absolute classic in Polish aviation circles. I'd love to do some roadbase operations myself. Finding the right stretch of road is the hard part, especially on Caucasus. Not surprised they chose the Persian Gulf, though they should've found a road with no trees or lampposts next to it. I would never attempt this without working rudder pedals. Shame they didn't use proper Polish skins. EDIT: Hey boss, look what I found... https://forums.eagle.ru/forum/english/licensed-third-party-projects/heatblur-simulations/dcs-ajs37-viggen/219721-any-good-suggestions-for-a-road-base-in-the-caucasus-map?p=5873223#post5873223 Not that I'm trying to suggest anything, but... You might have the perfect map to try some of these out.
