Hi Jeanba

Check the parameters of your MiG-21MF.
If the plane is not flyable(No cockpit or some mistake in the entries)the campaign dont work.
The file MiG-21MF must included some entries like so:

[AircraftData]
AircraftFullName=MiG-21MF "Fishbed-J"
AircraftShortName=MiG-21
AircraftDataFile=MiG-21MF_data.ini
LoadoutFile=MiG-21MF_loadout.ini
LoadoutImage=MiG-21MF_loadout.tga
HangarScreen=MIG-21MF_hangar.jpg
LoadingScreen=MIG-21MF_loading.jpg
CockpitDataFile=Cockpit_MiG-21MF.INI
AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll
AvionicsDataFilename=Avionics_MiG-21MF.INI
UserList=MiG-21MF_UserList.ini

 

 

 

Important also to set the file after all modifications as "Only read". (right button of the mouse)

If you forget that, in the next launch of the Sim, all last entries for the cockpit and anothers of the MiG-21MF file are re-write and deleted.

It's been 8 years that my Mig is flyable !

And you don't need to "read only" the file.

The problem is that the screen freezes when I select the campaign.

Great

 

I had to change some file formats, but it works now.

I made 2 missions but was shot down by "maneuver kill", trapped between a Haw battery and a Shahak !

I just would like to add the Su-20, which squadron did they belong to ?

 

THnak you in advance

Is this 54 squadron ?

 

3 Squadrons with 120 MiG-17F and MiG-17PF and a mix unit with 22 Su-7BMK and 15 Su-20.

Yes, apparently(no 100 % sure)the 54th was the unit with the 15 Su-20s. By Jun 82 in the Lebanon War the Su-20s were with the 677th at Al Qusayr Airbase.

Yes, I assumed this too.

There is a su-20 available (B and C versions), and being updated, but the versions are "late one", not used in 1973 (but ok for Jun 82)
