Hi gents, I was wondering about an enhanced, naval, historical scenario ....

 

We have the Darwin moden terrain.

 

We have some oustanding planes (the real stars):

 

- Mirage IIIO DLC

- A-4G DLC or our mod

- F-4 RAAF by Ravenclaw

 

We have some good evil by me:

- Tu-16KS

- MiG-19

- MiG-21F

- MiG-15UTI

- MiG-17PF

some more in WIP Packs (but the AURI skins are all done) :

- MiG-17F

- IL-28

- An-12

- An-2

 

We have the Melbourne and her Daring class escorts ....

 

And if the Royal Navy will sail south The Ark Royal with high res deck, her escorts, the Buccs and the F-4K will be ready ....

 

Anyone of our great campaigns guru could do the job? Please .... I will be proud to help.

 

:biggrin:

Well, I don't know about historical but I did do a what-if 1970 campaign featuring said planes, from my other thread:

DISCLAIMER: I am literally from the other side of the planet, so my knowledge of the RAAF, RAN, and Indonesia is mostly from reading Wikipedia. Errors are to be expected..

 

Hi all!

A few weeks back is started to work on a small campaign based on the Modern Darwin terrain, to get to use all the Aussie DLC planes I just bought :biggrin: I settled on the year 1970 as the time to get an interesting mix of aircraft. Here is my backstory, which is a pretty big "what-if" but maybe necessary for the time to explain all the airworthy Indonesian MiGs:

 

"In 1965, Indonesian Major General Suharto seizes power over the country, and launches a campaign to prosecute communist party members. The Soviet Politbureu does not however sit idly by, as western intelligence agencies had anticipated, but launched a military mission to keep the KPI in power. Overtly, this mission is told to be a peace-keeping mission to stop the slaughter of thousands of innocent alleged communists. In 1967 Suharto is executed at a court martial and the PKI is installed as the only legal party in Indonesia. The new communist regime is eager to pay back the western powers who tried to support Suharto, and now threatens to launch a campaign to cut Australian supply lines. The bolstered air force flies missile carriers freshly delivered from Moscow, and poses a serious threat to the RAN. The RAAF, aided by the Royal Navy and Airforce as well as the RAN, launches Operation Gambit, aimed at destroying the Indonesian Air Force and Navy."

 

Features:

  • RAAF, RAN, RAF and RN vs. Indonesia
  • Two carrier groups
  • Three surface groups
  • Ground war

Aircraft:

  • Mirage IIIO F and A RAAF (DLC)
  • A-4G RAN (DLC)
  • F-4E RAAF (mod)
  • F-4K RN (DLC)
  • Buccaneer RN & RAF (mod)
  • Harrier GR.1 RAF (stock)
  • Canberra Mk20 RAAF (mod)

Requirements:

  • Above mentioned aircraft
  • All SF2 titles merged (probably)
  • Ships, most notably the aircraft carriers and some british escort ships, Komar patrol craft, Riga cruisers.. will post list.
  • Modern Darwin terrain, with the two tweak packs applied..

Known bugs/problems:

  • The Indonesian MiGs are using generic skins

Installation:

1) Make sure you have the necessary bits and bobs

2) Extract the IndonesianGambit folder to your campaign folder

3) Add the statements NavalMap=TRUE to your Darwin.ini, and place the included Darwin_water.bmp file in your Darwin terrain folder..

 

 

 

Screenies:

It never got past beta actually since some assets were missing but if you want to help Paulo finishing it would not be that hard actually! And making earlier and later version with different aircraft is not hard once you got the basics down.

Sure I do.

 

I use one from a waterbmp pack and works well, except in campaing because ships don't show numbers ....

Thanks. Skinning the Mustang even if using a simple scheme, is always a pleasure.

 

 

 

As I lack good OOBs for scenarios set in '60 and '70 it seems that AURI planes included in previous A-Team / Centurion beta campaign are by far overstimated ...

 

For example:

 

- there was only a P-51 squadron (I haven't the number ... ) during all the period

 

- the 14th squadron was equipped with MiG-21F13 till 1972 than with CAC Sabre 32 and by 1980 with F-5E

 

As MiG-21, Sabre and F-5E were all only about 20 planes, AURI could fild not more than this squadron.

 

In fact in 1974 there were only 2 squadron: one with mustangs and the other with Sabres ....

 

BTW if someone has some good references and OBB please share ...

You can also use DDG-2 for Perth class DDGs after 1965.

I look forward to your pack.
