If i got your question right, in the plane's DATA.ini (EX: A-4E_DATA.ini) in the primary role you need to add, if they are not there: CAP,INTERCEPT, SWEEP, ESCORT, that will make you fight with other planes.

 

 

hope this is what you are looking for.

In that case there are made specially for that role, is just matter of have them in the game.

 

i all ready got the f-14-a as default plane for instant action..

but i wanna change the other planes 2..

 

i use the map battle of brittain 70.

now i fly with a f-14-a against mig 21 and all other old mig planes..

thats lame and easy..

 

no challenge but i know that the mig 29 is a good plane also like the su-27

thats more of a challenge

You can use the KMD for scripted missions or do it yourself with notepad.

The other methode is to use the timeframe. Set the year of the mission to 1989 for instance and you will face randomly the MiG-29 or Su-27.

The scripted mission files you find in folder missions. They are msn files, which you can modify with notepad editor. The weapon load in such missions is defened with the line Loadout=AirToAir for dogfights. This you cant modify easily.

 

The other methode is to use the single mission which is created randomly by the parameters you can set. In such missions you can change the loadout of your plane and the planes of your wingmens, but not the weaponload of your enemies.

extract the 'instant action.ini' from MissionData.cat, put it into the /Flight folder, and edit each individual flight of aircraft to what you want, dependant on year availablity

 

we been doing that for our WW2 installs since 2005!!
