  1. Iran strikes US bases in Iraq.

    This is when CombatACE starts to shine during moments like these. We have the press running passing incomplete reports, people Tweeting a fraction of those reports. CombatACE has some very knowledgeable veterans that's been there and done that, they can talk the talk because they've walked the walk. I can't wait to see these folks start weighing in on this subject.
  2. Australia forest fires

    This image was posted on Reddit Someone else linked another report which is the reference for the above report. In case you're into reading such reports: http://www.climateinstitute.org.au/verve/_resources/fullreportbushfire.pdf I didn't read it all. However it's a report published in September 2007 that, as you see in the image above, observed patterns and projected the situation they're dealing with now to happen between 2020-2050.
  3. Call me an idiot .. because I am. Anyway here's my question. If the STOBAR system means your aircraft will have limited range and lighter payloads, why use it? I understand that cost wise STOBAR systems are cheaper. Better to save money when and where you can. On the other hand tho why not use the CATOBAR system? Yeah it's more costly but don't the advantages out weigh the cost in the end? Or do their engines not have the power to generate what's needed to run the CATOBAR system? What gets me is that I remember hearing reports on the news about China becoming the tech capital of the world ... so one would think they'd be using the new electromagnetic systems.
  4. Double Engine Flame Out

    Saw this on Imgur and I have no idea as to what is going on other than there was double engine flame out. https://imgur.com/gallery/1O1NFLG
  5. Hey Guys, I was watching TV and got annoyed at all of these medication commercials and class action announcements that were suing them. So I wrote a parody medication commercial.The medication is called Fxidan and it's the medication people have been waiting for. Because I'm just silly, I have the medication being sued as they're trying to pitch their product. I think things turned out great and, if you a have few minutes, I think you might enjoy this "short movie" as well. I look forward to knowing your thoughts. On a side note this is the first time I edited two people interacting with each other and believe it or not my love for audio editing started right here at CombatACE with some projects we worked on in the past.
  6. I wonder how that would've impacted the war had that made into production in time.
  7. So I heard that Russia's only aircraft carrier is caught on fire today... So is this something you put out, patch up and move on with, or just say screw it, and build a new one?
  8. That's a good video. I was surprised with how maneuverable the C-130 and Osprey are. I mean I see C-130s fly overhead everyday and for some reason I just had it stuck in my head that it's a big slow gentle giant (until you put a 105mm Howitzer in it's port side then it becomes deadly giant.)
  9. Top Gun 2 Trailer 2

    I'm just here hoping they won't fuck this up. Don't get me wrong you know I want to see this movie. I'm just not wanting to get overly hyped up is all.
  10. Russian Carrier was on Fire ... any news about that?

    I cut my cable off and run antenna TV I keep forgetting to check their websites.
  11. Kind of NSFW due to cussing but it's funny. https://i.imgur.com/vdUVwAf.mp4 This gets me laughing hard. "Holy shit this is some fukin' National Geographic shit" ROFL
  12. Plane HUB

    Nicely done ... I'm surprised the Engines on the Japanese one isn't pixelated.
  13. Man in High Castle Season 4 ... ugh

    Exactly my thoughts. I'm wondering if they were setting it up for a movie or something? I mean last season why not go with a movie ... or maybe they set it up for a book ... or not. I do love the series.
  14. Man in High Castle Season 4 ... ugh

    Waited for a long time to see how things would wrap up with Man in the High Castle series. I feel a little bit let down with how things ended. Why did they waste so much time in Season 3 with useless story arcs and relationships? See this is why I hate agenda pushing. You push an agenda and kill the story. So much for 4 could've went into 3 and then we could have had more .... closure. All in all it was a good ride 1-4 (part 9). I haven't felt this disappointed in an ending since Mass Effect 3. They need to do a short 3 episodes to really wrap things up if you ask me.
  15. Is Any of This Accurate?

    Dang man. Well that explains ... a lot really. If it's not combat messing you up, it's the government, then you come home to civilians hyped up on network news bullshit. Perfect.
  16. That's an awesome pilot right there. Hard enough making a landing with one wheel no they do it on a carrier. That's pretty awesome.
  17. Well I mean who wouldn't jump on a couch after nailing some super model?
  18. DCS Air to Air Refueling Attempt

    I've been practicing at this for a while and finally got good enough to be crappy lol I just wanted to share this moment with you. Honestly I think I need to adjust some settings with the throttle so they can be more sensitive.
  19. DCS Air to Air Refueling Attempt

    If I can do it I know you can! I've destroyed both planes so many times it's not even funny. However I was watching this show called Jetstream and there's a segment where F-18 Students learn about aerial refueling. This is a neat little show honestly.
  20. Oh that's nice! I'll get one of those someday (if things go well)
  21. My thing is this. The VFX program has taught us no single aircraft is suitable for all of the services. F-4, F-111, have taught us this back in the day. Just as there is no single tool that can do every job. There is no single aircraft that can do every job. Something will have to be compromised. Personally I like having a lot of options to handle a task. Sometimes the job will call for a knife and sometimes the job will call for a scalpel.
