F/A-18 Drivers love pigs

I've been experimenting with the new TPOD and while I don't understand all the features, and there is no literature in the official manual that explains them yet, I've sorted out to use the pod effectively. My experiments only reaffirmed my love for the JSOW. It's a fantastic stand off weapon with s...

Re: Snowfox sortie tonight

NICE! That takes some real flying at those altitudes because there are so many factors to consider, including ground fire.

Re: AIM-120 development progress

Yup you can still do it. Seems like high altitude, high speed and pitching your nose up produces best results. Based on this explanation, I see little point in doing any kind of CAP below 30k in most circumstances. Never give up the high ground if you don't have to.

No performance issues noted while playing. At least on my end.

Re: AIM-120 development progress

Hey thanks for posting this. Going to have to give it a thorough read and see if the long distance shot with the the AIM-120 is still viable, ie. above angels 30 and plus 40 miles. I doubt it is.

Great mission! You're lucky they didn't hit something more critical. What was your average attack altitude?

Re: Can our missions ONLY use Supercarrier?

I would say we need to keep the Stennis in until such time that we are done recruiting and determine our needs. From Super Carrier FAQ: "However, if you do not own the Supercarrier module, you will not be able to spawn on the deck to takeoff or catch an arresting wire to land. You would also not be ...

Re: New manuals

The F/A-18 manual does not have a section the AGM-84E or the revised targeting pod. I can probably figure it out given time, but they should be releasing the literature with added/revised components. The Targeting Pod's operation procedure has been completely done over. Will have to wait for a YouTu...

Okay, then, I know that TACAN A:A works with X frequencies. This file has a PDF doc in it that provides navigation info for PG, including TACANs. Simply download and unzip the file, then find the PDF folder in the directory and open the PDF in that folder. I would attach it directly but doesn't appe...

Re: I wonder how many people still care?

I've never seen the original. But, as many productions are still on hold due to the pandemic, Cameron may be creating a blueprint for filming and thus a way forward for the industry at large.

RLG AAR Practice mission attached

Hi everyone, Some of you may have thought in the past, "Gee, if I only had a practice mission with most of the jets that I fly, all three tanker types, and both the Stennis and the new Super Carrier in the PG map, I'd be able to practice air-to-air refueling properly, damnit!" WELL NOW YOU CAN! I've...
