  1. IIRC i had static artillery (mortars or so) on my Afghanistan terrain for WOI in the area of Jalalabad. The mortats of both sides fired on each other. In First Eagles i made a similar thing where battleships and ground arty made fire exchanges. The objects (arty, ships, tanks) were placed as static ground objects on the map. In the Afghanistan_types.ini the objects are defined as artillery: [TargetType094] Name=RPG-7 FullName=RPG-7 TargetType=Artillery <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< This line ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=RPG-7 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType095] Name=T-55 FullName=T-55 TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=T-55 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType096] Name=BTR-60 FullName=BTR-60 TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=BTR-60 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType097] Name=BTR-70 FullName=BTR-70 TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=BTR-70 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType098] Name=M113 FullName=M-113 TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=2001 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=M113 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType099] Name=Taliban FullName=Taliban TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=Taliban RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType100] Name=Granatwerfer FullName=recoilless gun TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=Granatwerfer RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 [TargetType101] Name=M3A1 FullName=Bradley TargetType=Artillery ActiveYear=0 TargetValue=100 UseGroundObject=TRUE GroundObjectType=M3A1 RepairRate=0.555 StartDetectChance=0 StartIdentifiedChance=0 IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0 MaxVisibleDist=8000.0 DestroyedEffect=SmallRocketGroundExplosion SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect SecondaryChance=50 But this was made for a first generation sim like WOE or WOI. I dont know, wheter it would work in SF2 world.
  2. In the plane_data.ini the data are always metric and in kilogram. For recalculation use this values: 1 litre AvGas=0.72 kg 1 litre JP-4 jet fuel = 0.82 kg
  3. The use of chemical weapons is a war crime. It is a violation of the Convention of Geneva.
  4. Recon balloons were rare. Propaganda ballooning was a common thing in the 50th and 60th. The balloons should drop leaflets, but mostly failed. For interception Yak-11 planes were used.
  5. Some thoughts about FFF

    I think the most of you will have heared something about the Fridays-for-Future movement and their master figure Greta T., which has a growing influence here in Germany and in Europe, as we have seen in the last elections for the European Parliament. The FFF movement declares, that it is an independent movement with the only aim to save the climate. But is this true? Follow the money, is an good advice. I have done it for the german FFF. What i found was: Donations for FFF have to give on a bank account which is owned by the Plant-for-Planet-Foundation. (https://fridaysforfuture.de/spenden/ The headmaster of the Plant-for-Planet Foundation is Frithjof Finkbeiner (https://www.plant-for-the-planet.org/de/footermenu/impressum Frithjof Finkenbeiner is member of the Club-of-Rome https://www.clubofrome.org/member/frithjof-finkbeiner/ One short look into Wiki: " the Club of Rome consists of current and former heads of state, UN bureaucrats, high-level politicians and government officials, diplomats, scientists, economists, and business leaders from around the globe "; with other words it is a thinktank, which makes money with predicting the end of the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_of_Rome And this is a screenshot of the homepage of the Club-of-Rome today: I think independence looks different. Its a simple rule i have learned. If you want to rule over people, make them afraid of the apocalypse.
  6. Winter over Faroe islands. (WIP terrain)
  7. The Bundesluftwaffe used it too, as long spareparts were available. Hope we get a Luftwaffe skin. And the external pylons for for bombs.
  8. East german dumb iron droppers in early (delivery) paintsceme.
  9. The S-97 Raider

    Nice. I love this bird. Reminds me on AH-56 Cheyenne. I hope the Air Force will not fight against high speed helicopters again.
  10. Are you so sure, that i dont speak russian? Do you think i cant read and write cyrillic? Do you really believe i dont understand what is written in russian? Really? Of course you are better in this. You are from Kiev. And the ukrainian language is nothing else than an old russian dialect with some latin letters in it. But i have learned russian in scholl and during my studyies. My russian is good enough. Fact! If you run out of arguments you starts to become offensive.! Its ukrainian style. Its ukrainian behaviour, as we can see in your parliament. You started to mix thinks together which have nothing in common without one point, they are strenghen your feeling of supperiority over the russians. In your eyes the russians are stupid, unable, unskilled, incompetent etc.pp. But if they are, why they are still sitting on the Crimean Peninsula? Could it be, that the western financed community in the Ukraine is exactly that what you believe the russians are? If you are unable to argue with persons which have other opinions or views, then you will never find a place in the EU. Because arguing is part of democracy.
  11. If you read the report correctly, then the answer is "No". In the report you find the line: было произведено поражение самолета МиГ-31 с борта другого истребителя того же полка. what means translated ino english: the MiG-31 aircraft was destroyed from the side of another fighter of the same regiment. Same regiment (squadron) does not mean wingman. I think there were multiple flights or pairs of MiG-31 in the area on different flight pathes (vectors). Only under that conditions a plane can be hit "from the side".
  12. I wrote in my last post: The WCS does not allow to fire a weapon to a "own" plane. The pilot can override the WCS only by active handling. Exactly this is descriped in the russian article. The WCS blocked the firing of the missile. The ground controller gave the order to attack. The plane crew refused the order and asked for repeat. The ground controller gave the order again. Then the plane crew override the safety mechanism of WCS and opened the fire. It was the fault of the ground controller. This is a typical case of "shit happens". During my military time i shot on an own T-55AM2 with a RPG-18, because the tank wanted to drove a shortcut. And this shortcut was exactly though our RPG shooting range. We usually shot on old tanks which were mounted of railway tracks, what looked very realistic. When the tank appeared the "Aufführende", the second guy, gave the order to shoot. I fired, hit the tank on turret, but luckily the addon armour was thick enough to protect the crew. Its typical military "shit hapens".
