  1. Never got see or hear a Tornado fly, only saw them on static displays. Probably the loudest aircraft I can remember (and could feel) would be the F-14, followed by the A-6, and then F-4.
  2. By the end of March 2019, one of the world’s most successful, combat-proven, fast jets will have been retired. https://combataircraft.keypublishing.com/2018/01/25/last-year-of-the-tornado-gr4/

    They beat him like a rented mule! LOL!

    the need for...tanking?
  6. In the Navy

    I gotta admit when I saw the title, I completely thought something else...

    The J was re-manufactured from the ground up to have plumbing in the wings for tanks, but it was a pain for crews to load/unload them. The re-modeled F-8K, L, H, and Ps did not have the plumbing. As far as wing tanks go, Jane's F-15 always carried two wing tanks. In F-18 I always carried a center-line (for CAP) or two or three for deep-strike (leaving one station open for another weapon store). In F-18 online, tanks were never really needed. For Lockon/DCS I normally carry two wing tanks in the F-15. I have done that so often and for so long, I have gotten use to flying with them and when I do punch them (last resort) I have to readjust to my stick's sensitivity settings and cut back on the burner. Example of me training in a live fire exercise against a maneuvering QF-4 with full internal fuel and 1/2 full wing tanks. If I tried to pull such maneuvers against an F-5, F-16, or F-18 I would have been dead meat. I
  10. Keeping everything in one thread In this mission I was a tactical controller attached to the 25th Infantry Division. We were deployed into NOT Cambodia at a night defense position we where supposed to bed down at until relieved by an ARVN unit in the morning.
  11. I hadn't gotten into ARMA for years. Still does not match Operation Flashpoint but will do enough in a fix.
  12. Might be worthwhile. Most of the audio files (even from Janes ATF and Fighters Anthology) can easily be ported over. Unfortunately the immersion is what has always been what is missing from the Flanker/Lock-On/DCS universe, particularly in regards to radio chatter and comms.
