LOMAC Preview 3.3 FAC-A, CAS and SANDY CSAR

Recommended Posts

Guest MrMudd

Disclaimer: I thought i would clarify a few things. The sim does not have this level of detail for the AI's in the communication procedures.

 

However my sim experiance is "ONLINE PLAY" and as such, as many of you would agree. "immersion" is what sims try to duplicate. And that is why we do it. We want the feeling of really being there in the heat of combat. even if its a virtual one With your Friends in an online Voice comms software enviroment

 

My articles are to demonstrate how this sim can provide tools for a realistic settings of a warfighting enviroment. While passing on to you the real World Mindset and procedures to a casual understandable level.

 

Bare with me and feel free to critique this not so young inspireing writer!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"know your Role"

 

Today we are going to Focus on three mission profiles That are specialties of the A10 Warthog. CSAR and FAC(A), CAS

 

CSAR: Combat search and rescue (SANDY)

Purpose: To rescue and extract personal

Assets: SANDY Coordinator, Helo support, Tactical recovery personal.

 

FAC(A): Forward Air Controler- Airborne

To communicate and coordinate an order of battle with Tactical and supporting air and ground assets and to assist a ground force commanders scheme of manuever.

 

Their purpose is to guide the Air assets on to their targets and to deconflict friendly forces from enemy forces. (fratricide prevention)

Assets:CAS aircraft, Artillary, Attack helos. CSAR support

 

 

Now back to the action. In this immersion Preview we will outline what was used to create and script this order of events, while passing off to you some ideas on how to plan and employ your forces, and understand their purpose on the battlefield.

 

You are only limited by your imagination.

From here you can begin setting your Enviromental Factors and time of Day

 

Next you can select Vehicles of all types and then selct their member nations each vehicle has a waypoint that you can define, and specify an off road or on road Coarse. as well as speed and headings.

 

 

Next you can Lay them out on an Altitude map, or a Satelite map of the terrain here are some examples Below.

 

each vehicle has a waypoint that you can define, and specify an off road or on road Coarse. as well as speed and headings.

 

At each waypoint you can specify the units activity.

Got a question on building missions.

 

At waypoints, can you assign speed or time-on-top at that waypoint?

 

Excellent preview/report, by the way!

Thanks Yojimbo!

 

However, real life has me in a bind. Kids start school in 4 hours after a long summer Break, i'll try to get back into the heat of the action as soon as possible!

 

I enjoy writing them as much as you guys enjoy reading them!

:)

 

Yes if you look closely to the Vehicle and waypoint screen shot

 

You can set "Action" at the waypoint.

You can set the speed of travel

 

And you can adjust accordingly the time of arrival, ETA, time on target etc. This is invaluable when timeing is an issue.

So let me try to undestand this while you are playing the game you will here radio chatter on your side when your doing campaign missions and single misions? Like IL-2, only this time in English not Russian or German.

Mudd thanks for the disclaimer, but your scenarios will help sell the game. It appears to be a game that immersion is required and inevitable.

 

I have not had this much interest in a game since RTCW. I will buy a copy and probably get my ass kicked by you online.

 

Thank you for the entertainment
