Very nice Beach, been a while since I did that the F-100 is a bit of a challenge.

 

The Hunter (to Fmk4) is a bit like a MiG-17 in turn ability, whereas the Fmk6 is like the MiG-17F despite no afterburner still has a comparable T/W (on paper) so is no slouch. Against Ace AI your best bet is keeping speed and going vertical.....................................I don't recommend doing so again a MiG-19S however............ bad idea there are smarter ways.

Yes, the F-100 feels like a brick when you get dumb with the stick. I'd be curious what the best cornering speed is on it. And as I mentioned, I hope external tanks come available in the campaign at some point - I honestly don't know how the mercenary campaigns work (but we'll see..!)...

F-100 was why I bought the game SFP1. That skin as awesome, can't wait to take it for a spin!

7.33G corner of the real thing was around 390 to 440KIAS but don't advise horizontal turning - it is totally outmatched by most of them jets. If the AI decides to keep turning best you will normally do vs Ace AI (MiG-17F/MiG-19S ) is a neutral lufbery while you run out of fuel. Also the AIM-9s significantly reduce turn performance and not only that they are useless in a turn.

Nice work, I like reading your reports! It just makes me wanna start a merc-campaign (never played any) and actually play the game, rather than do skins or other stuff for it. Please continue!

Your AARs make me want to drop terrain modding and start playing SF2 again! I hope we can soon give you an updated Operation Desert Storm campaign!

Great pics, I really like the one in M 06, the A-4 over the airfield...

Campaign still going or was there a unfortunate sudden end... ?

That's obvious, as fast as the tug goes.
