    Exclamation DCS OTU Mission downloads - WW2 & Jets

    Hi all,
    Jimmi requested that I share the mission for others. I've uploaded it to dropbox and the file can be accessed here:
    https://79vraf.wordpress.com/europea.../dcs-missions/

    Mission includes a range of targets. They are not all loaded at the start so missions are started through the F10 Comms menu. There are armoured targets for bombing practice, there are a couple of truck and mixed convoys for strafing practice, ships for bomb and rocket practice. There was a B-17 raid to escort, but I forgot that this used the WW2 Assets Pack, meaning that some people could not join. As a result this has been removed, for the time being. There are also fighters. It is always worth being on the lookout as they can spawn at random and they attack the airfield. It's good motivation to learn how to start up quickly and get off the ground. If they do not spawn in at random then they can be brought in through the F-10 Comms menu at any time; they can also be blown up through the F-10 comms menu too, just try not to be too close when that happens (no idea what impact it has on lag either!)

    The armoured targets let you know when you have missed the target and when they have been destroyed. There is orange smoke to highlight the area of the targets.
    The ships give out a message when they have been hit, damaged and destroyed. There is also red smoke.
    The convoys give out Blue smoke. I'm looking to add a forward air controller that will designate the targets with smoke for us through the radio messages, but that may have to wait a bit.

    I'm also going to tweak the way the armoured targets report back as it's not quite right at the moment and I think the Red Smoke should come on when they are destroyed and not when they are missed.

    Included aircraft:
    • Spitfire Mk IX
    • Spitfire Mk IX Clipped Wing
    • P-51D Mustang
    • TF-51D Mustang


    To be added:
    • Bf109K-4
    • Fw190D-9

    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.

    Default DCS OTU - Persian Gulf

    Working along the lines of the mission above I am working on developing an OTU mission for modern aircraft in the Persian Gulf. This will look to incorporate Carrier Ops for the F/A-18, Harrier, Su-33 and upcoming F-14 Tomcat release.

    Different scenarios can be loaded in through the Communications F-10 menu.
    Current scenarios include:
    • Intercept and shadow Russian Tu-95 Bear flight that is monitoring fleet operations
    • Target Range on the island of Sir Abu Nu'Ayr with hit recording and indestructible targets and supporting JTAC operators.
    • Air Combat Zone - randomised spawning of Su-27, Mig-29, Mig-23, Mig-21 aircraft
    • In-flight refuelling training


    To be added:
    • Anti-shipping strikes
    • Anti-airfield operations
    • SEAD (Suppression Enemy Air Defences) missions
    • Close Air Support
    • Scramble intercept
    • Helicopter operations


    Current Aircraft:
    • F/A-18 Hornet
    • Su-33 Flanker
    • AV/8B Harrier
    • F-15C Eagle
    • Mirage 2000C
    • AJS37 Viggen
    • F-5E Tiger II
    • Mig-21bis Fishbed
    • Mig-29A Fulcrum


    Potential Aircraft:
    • TF-51 Mustang
    • L-39ZA
    • Mig-29S Fulcrum
    • Su-27 Flanker
    • F-14 Tomcat


    I'd like to do the same on the NTTR map, but not enough people have it. I'll do something similar on the Georgia Map, and I'll get around to something similar in Normandy. Once complete new maps will be added to the 79vRAF website for download. This could, in theory, be placed on the EAF server but I am not worried about this.

    Default Re: DCS OTU Mission downloads - WW2 & Jets

    We've got the two most recent missions added online:
    EAF Jet OTU DACT mission
    This mission contains Dissimilar Air Combat Training (DACT) with a dedicated combat zone, but it also incorporates randomisation of defences to test abilities and tactics against SAM defended targets as well as a practice range and the ability to participate as a JTAC and designate targets for trainees.

    Mission 1 of the Georgian Insurgency campaign

    These missions are free to download and use. They're both revolving around modern aircraft though, with the primary focus on the AV8B Harrier and the F/A-18 Hornet. They also contain the F-5E, AJS37 Viggen and others. Both contain flyable opposition.
