    Default SoW event

    Hi all,
    Phil is putting out requests for interest in a DCS co-op with a range of aircraft involved (though no WW2). Info is here:

    I would like to know if we can put together 12 or more players accross the various types and roles listed below.
    If you / your squad is keen, PLEASE REPLY IN THIS THREAD.
    The mission will most likely be hosted on a Sunday or Friday evening, at around 8pm UK time.

    A full briefing with target photos and assets locations will be posted once I know if there is enough interest.
    I would also happily include an air-controller role into the mix if someone wanted to co-ordinate from the ground, over TS.

    The premise is a fictional NATO v Warsaw Pact conflict in the Caucasus in the late 1980s, just prior to the collapse of the Pact.

    At the moment I have the following human-player assets and tasks:
    1. 4x land-based Harrier slots for SEAD and Ground attack
    2. 6x AJS Viggen slots for Ground attack and Maritime strike
    3. 4x UH1H helicopter slots operating from a forward FARP for hunting soft troop columns in the mountains
    4. 4x F15 (2xC and 2xE) slots for fighter support
    5. 4x A-10A slots for ground attack
    6. 2x F5 for fighter support
    7. 3x mirage for fighter support

    The mission is quite complex with a number of primary targets which will require co-operation between the flying assets.Planning beforehand will be required, so flight/ squadron leaders should take some time to famil with the briefing.

    Ben and I flew a "tester" to one of the targtes over the weekend, to see how it worked in principle. This target has now been strengthened. But here is the video of that flight:

    I'm signed up for the Harrier, but happy to fly the Mirage, F-5 or Huey if it comes to it. Viggen isn't for me on this kind of mission, yet.

    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    Signed up for the Harrier, looking forward to it, flying with another squads should be good fun

    I hope there will be more of this after summer, hopefully with WW2 planes as well eventually (hopefully with all the WW2 assets/maps/planes up to the promised standard).

    I'm afraid I won't be able to make the event as I will be on holidy. I'm going straight from there to Leicester to help my parents move house.

    Just to let you know this went tits up for me with connection problems, three attempted TO's one due to a disco, the other two due to lag on TO that screwed it up, went to pub

    Yeah not sure what happened there Red. Bad luck. We saw lag spikes throughout the mission - probably when AI units were spawning in. Fortunately not when we were too close to ground.

    Video of Harrier flight here from 19Sqn Dixon



    Mission was good fun - Mirages kept any MiGs off us and target was undefended by radar SAMS so we didn't use SIDEARMS. Dixon bombed the comms tower (two actually) with LGBs but not sure if it registered as dead or not. I think we also had some confusion over RWR symbology and were getting spooked by friendly F-15s looking at us, rather than SA-15 sites.

    Next briefing up for another mission on 29 June....

    Watched the Vid the other day and heard the discussion about the 15 simbology on the RwR. To be honest I was pissing myself laughing, this might help

    What kind of idiots let me lead the flight on my sodding first DCS coop eh?

    Think the confusion possibly stemmed from perhaps the F-15s briefly locking us up on ingress - which might (will have to watch vid again) have produced a lollipop on the HUD and made us think that Phil had plonked a SAM in the mountains for us to run over....
