  1. Some interesting history videos I found.

    Here are a few more videos by The History Guy. Reactor accident on Soviet Submarine K-19. Submarines, Balloons, and the Battle of Los Angeles. The Norwegian Rocket Incident of 1995 Taffy Holden, the Accidental Lightning Pilot USS Buckley vs U-66 Here is a link to the U.S.S. BUCKLEY (DE-51)'s action report for 6 May 1944 that is referenced in the video below if you want to read it for yourself. I first learned about this incident from the paperwork that came with a model kit of the Buckley that I built back in the 90's.
  2. Landed on the wrong carrier

    Here are a number of other examples, F4U to F-14. Also a Royal Navy Sea Vixen and a prank by the RN on a USMC F-4.
  3. Star Wars - Original Trailers

  4. Given all of the military and aviation buffs here I thought I should share these reviews of various military pilot survival gear/escape and evasion kits that I found. Below the inserted videos are links to a number of additional aviation food rations reviews sorted in chronological order by ration date when possible. Enjoy!

  5. Looking at the Updated Korat RTAFB recently posted reminded me of something I have been wanting since I read When Thunder Rolled. Could someone make a relatively accurate static terrain object of the dog Rosco, 388th Tactical Fighter Wing mascot and honorary base commander, and the necessary data in the Targets and Types INI files for him to appear outside the Korat RTAFB Officers Club from May 1966 to September 12th, 1975. Below are links to some sites with photos, a bit of film, and info about Rosco for modeling and skinning reference. The Vietnam War Years of Korat Royal Thai Air Base - Roscoe - Photos and stories about the dog who "commanded" an Air Base from those who raised Roscoe, to those who encountered Roscoe, to those who have guarded his legacy and legend! Robert W. Smith - autobiography - Limited Weapons, Assured Defeat Chapter 5 - Limited Weapons, Assured Defeat, 13 October: Rosco photo. Find a grave - Roscoe Dog (1965-1975) There is film of Roscoe in the video below, the link should have the correct time set, if not then he appears from time index 26:36 to 27:09, about 33 seconds in total.
  6. @ravenclaw_007 I noticed a possible issue with a difference in the fusing distance on the slick vs retarded TDD Mk81 bombs. The Mk81_TDD, Mk81_N_TDD, and MK81_Ng_TDD have a "FusingDistance=10.000000". The MK81SE_TDD, MK81_N_SE_TDD, and MK81_Ng_SE_TDD have a "FusingDistance=0.000000". Is this difference in fusing distance done on purpose or is it an error? The TDD fuse on these bombs look like they have laser proximity emitters, if so and 10m range is intended then I would suggest "FusingDistance=10.686600" based upon the info i provide below. In testing SAM's with Snailman and Spillone104 we found that weapons have no hit boxes/collision point. Only WeaponDataType=7 which are Cruses Missiles have any collision entry in the DLL files and that is only so that they can be shot down. What FusingDistance= does is set a maximum fusing distance away from the weapon LOD's 0 point in a straight line along its center Y-axis. This behavior matches a remark I remember TK made when he was ask about proximity fuses on the AIM-54 over on the TW forum back when SF2:NA came out. As such you might want to set the "FusingDistance=" for weapons's out at the point where fuse action would be initiated even it it is a contact fused weapon. On a regular MK81 for example this would be a "FusingDistance=0.756900"... ...and on an MK81_FE it would be a "FusingDistance=1.673000". The MK81_TDD's TDD_base mesh with the four laser rangefinders on its base has a MinMax center point of 0.6866. ((0.6935 - 0.6797)/2)=0.0069+0.6797=0.6866. Then 0.6866 plus "FusingDistance=10.000000" = "FusingDistance=10.686600". On your AIM-4E it would be "FusingDistance=1.209000". If you wish I could go through your entire Weapons Packs 1 and 2 and adjust all impact fuse and A2A weapons according to this discovery.
  7. I forgot to check the difference in dates between your post and the latest one.
  8. Try the steps below with the latest version of GIMP for importing the terrain palette.
  9. Strategic Air Command

    Just came across of B-47 scene on YouTube.
  10. Spillone104 is working on one, it has just been on the back burner.
  11. I think what you want are these entries under the engine section of the aircraft's data INI file. IdleThrottle=0.10 <------------- IdleRPM=0.66 IdleNozzle=0.90 CruiseThrottle=0.37 <--------- CruiseRPM=0.82 CruiseNozzle=0.25 MilThrottle=0.65 <--------------- MilRPM=1.00 MilNozzle=0.25 MaxThrottle=0.78 <------------- MaxRPM=1.00 MaxNozzle=0.25 FullABThrottle=1.12 <---------- FullABRPM=1.00 FullABNozzle=0.90
  12. Strategic Air Command

    I recorded Strategic Air Command on my DVR about a month ago just because I remembered Wrench talking about the footage in it.
  13. F-16 Demo flight cockpit view

    A P-51D Mustang.
