  1. Strike Fighters 2: Rolling Thunder

    Green Hell 3.5 On further examination I think I'm already using the 'Gold' Vietnam air & ground expansion, with Green Hell 3.5 & it's enhancement package over the top, so "it's as good as it's gonna get". In any case I can't remember the last time I flew standard SF2 Vietnam, that's how good the A-G expansion is.

    I have the Green Hell expansion, is it worth updating to/replacing with this version?
  3. Finally the F-111 has a tidy CCIP. I edited my own using the stock gunsight which wasn't ideal, but more useful for low-level drops (that the aircraft was designed for) than the non-moving gunsight. Thanks for continuing to update this excellent add-on.
  4. Can't hurt... I've had too many porked installs to believe that one Anyway I'm guessing it's a file we can edit to add a lift line to the canopy? I had such a thing in the dark, distant days of Flanker 2.5
  5. Just getting back on this pony, and wondering where the loose 'CanopyGlassTemplate.tga' file should be placed. and what is it's purpose?
  6. Yes, I use a Cougar and have the Antenna Elevation axis mapped to thrust vector control

  8. How do you get your wingnuts to formate so close?
  9. Nose looks like an RF-4, & AFAIK the U.S. Navy didn't operate them??

    Oh my framerate!! Great work ravenclaw_007. You're clearly a perfectionist, so... Check the spelling in the Mk.82_AIR stenciling on the bomb itself. Not that it would lessen the effect of dropping them on any Gomer's heads, but now I can't un-see it
  11. How to properly use dumb A2G munitions

    Whether you like it or not, Yubba has put a lot of time & effort into his mods, then also taken the trouble to share his results. Using his radar edits you can emulate a radar bombing system somewhat accurately, although you still need to be accurate with your flight profile. I don't agree with putting HUD's in 1960's-70's era planes but given the lack of any controllable bombing computer function in this game then a CCIP pipper is the next best thing. If (like me) you use it realistically, i.e. keeping the pipper in the combining glass, even CCIP demands you are disciplined enough to fly a correct dive bombing profile. But after 15 years of practice I can usually get results using the principles in the SimHQ article, provided I have the luxury of time to set-up properly. Which is pretty realistic, in terms of the best results fighter jocks of the day were getting.
  12. How to properly use dumb A2G munitions

    For the Vietnam-era F-111's, low & and fast gets the job done. Try 650 KIAS, 600 ft AGL, drop when the target is in the bottom of the bombsight outer ring .

  14. I can check later when I'm home but I'm sure my UK box set has that extra episode too
