There were a few requests to some missions in a blog entry. One for some Su-25T weapons run-throughs and one for an amphibious assault - http://www.lockonfil...round-pounders/ .
This would go along with the work I was doing to transfer a Su-25T Flaming Cliffs MissionPack to DCS World

Picked up the Mig21-bis. Saw the cockpit and said, "Yummy, I gotta have this." Even though I prefer ground-pounding with the Su-25T, Ka-50, and A10C, it was difficult to pass on this. So, I didn't.

Logged into my DCS account and ordered it & downloaded the 500MB module.

Mission Requests Taken - Ground Pounders

I have transferred over about 6 or 7 missions for the Su-25T from Flaming Cliffs 1.12 to DCS World. But that's going to take a lot of testing and tweaking until it works out correctly. So as a switch from that, I am going to make some other missions for the other ground-pounders (A-10C, Su-25 maybe, and Ka-50 Black Shark)

In the end I'm going to have a M...


Black Shark: Night Missions Possible

Black Shark: Night Missions Possible Night-time missions were near impossible as the Shkval Target Designator can barely pick up targets for missiles. When looking through the new options with the Mission Editor, I came across illuminating bombs(LUU-2) option. After testing, they're good enough for night missions for the night-blind Ka-50 Black Shark.

A-10C Wingman Basics

A-10C, Wingman
In testing my earlier A-10C mission, I usually would do all the work of destroying the targets.  But whenever I sent off my wingman to a target I had specified, he went some place - almost at random.  I had to dig into this if I wanted to get this right and do bigger missions.

Lead Plane + Wingman is the basic set of military aircraft o...


A10C Mission: Chikola Night Hunt

I usually like a narrative to a mission - the terrain and objectives usually provide good hooks.  So I usually choose the map area first - setting up a campaign in the region of Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, Russia in southern Russia.  I don't see many missions there.  But if you are going to have a fictional conflict, you can place it pretty much...


NDB? - Non-Directional Beer?

No, it's a Non-Directional Beacon.  These beacons are standard navigation devices used at modern airports and used by the Ka-50 Black Shark.  Before GPS and the other modern navigational aids, it was an important way to guide planes to airports.  But for a Ka-50 in a war zone, it's a good backup to have.

For the Ka-50 it's a backup system to...

Been working on my first thorough DCS: A-10C mission.  With maximized randomness and having to test the air cover and radio usage, by repetition alone, I added a few skills to my repertoire. A lot of this was difficult to explain - but much easier to do.  It is like flying a software program

- Know WHEN you can use all t...
