  1. Humpday Heavies

    Some Russian's Hump Day is about to be worse than a Mayday...
  2. Thanks for doing this work, but in the future can you please upload all the files bundled up in a .Zip or preferably .7z file? Thanks again!
  3. MiG-27 Floggers doing what Floggers do...
  4. Sorry this thread's been dead for so long. Work has continued on an "as able" basis. Although I admit playing around with the F-111 is a bit more fun than backroom stuff. Backroom Stuff Backroom stuff? Just made these two screens today: Granted, I'm probably going to replace the top one in the near future. But at least now when I boot this build up, it looks like a JASDF 2020 SF2 sim and not a Vietnam War sim! Working on background music as well. Hit a brick wall this morning importing this very JASDF song so went to this instead. GOT SOME NEW JETS... You'll have to pay close attention to see all of the new red jets coming. But the new MiG-31 is going to be a big hit. Also the Su-30SM with a more realistic/timely skin will be a but not the primary adversary for the F-15Js. Below are a couple preview shots: Finally, one more red jet announcement: You will be splashing Il-72s also. Yet you'll also be flying sorties in the JASDF F-35A & F-2A. Stealth will be important with the big radars of big jets you'll be up against, but also you'll be leading the grand finale maritime strike needing both ASM-3s and IR bombs. "WHAT IF" Also I've had some ideas of some "What If" scenarios that will be uploaded separately. Scenarios like: What if there was a JMSDF AEGIS destroyer helping cover the cargo ships getting away from the Kurils? What if that same JMSDF Aegis Destroyer was returning when the Russians mounted their alpha strike? What if a JASDF F-4 Phantom attempted a photo recon run of Russian ships? How close could it get before getting shot down, even with say... F-2A and/or F-15J escort? What if the JASDF bought from the RAAF as an interim strike-fighter the... RAAF F-111. To keep the F-111 airworthy for 10-15 years until sufficient F-35As would come online, the F-111 would be only for maritime strike and maritime reconnaissance with a Japanese F-2A radar & such to support the latest JASDF weapons. Rarely flown as the F-111s serve as JASDF's "big stick" against invasion attempts of its outlying islands to replace the F-1 + F-4 + a significant number of F-2Bs destroyed in the 2011 tsunami at a bargain basement cost. Figure this update should whet our shared appetites.
  5. My open beta: Let me know what you think please.
  6. Just made another screen... but I might change the screenshot as the F-15J probably would drop the tanks in RL before firing off IR missiles.

  7. They thought you would get a mutual kill with active radar missiles but nobody considered an Archer from a Su-27 hitting a F-15J shooting back with a 20mm...
  8. Think I figured out how to make a main screen that looks more appropriate!

  9. Spending what's left of the morning working on some administrative Nihon Hitori 2020 stuff... stuff like adding background sounds and menu screens.  Somehow, a USAF F-4 Phantom doesn't fit well with a 2020 JASDF vs. Russia campaign.

  10. 0.9 OPEN BETA FOR F-111 CCIP BY JOSEFK View File Here is a wad of avionics.ini mods for the SF2 F-111s by @FastCargo. Now granted I recommend @viper63a's F-111 add-ons to graft on top of 'em you can get here: https://combatace.com/files/category/630-f-111/ Basically what I've done is add a CCIP or Continuously Calculated Impact Point to the HUD. The intent is to give you the chance to be a lot more accurate droping Mk 80-series dumb bombs in the F-111. Especially since there is no feedback when bombing from the Weapons System Operator/WSO in SF2. Now I realize this isn't realistic for the days of the F-111 when there was absolutely NO helmet-mounted display that could project on top of a cockpit like now in 2020 with the Lightning IIs, Flankers, Fulcrums and arguably other front-line jets like the Super Hornet & Typhoon. Frankly from the research I've done most of the F-111 variants with the exception of the D likely never got a CCIP. The fact later models got a PAVE TACK to drop laser-guided bombs was a factor and of course, the F-111 had the Lead Computing Optical Sight that one can't program in SF2. So this copy-paste job of mine could very well be the next best thing with at least a realistic icon big enough to have some decent risk of circular error. Maybe there is better, hence this being an open beta. I would also like to incorporate terrain following into a bigger avionics upgrade... ;-).

  11. Just submitted my first file to CombatAce.  It's just a simple avionics file for fellow F-111 fans but...

  13. 1989 A-4K KAHU RNZAF Skyhawk Aircraft upgrade

    Sure think the Kiwis after 9/11 if they are honest with themselves had wished they kept a minor force-in-being air superiority jet force... you know, just in case. Also at least the F-16 in 1992 got the AIM-120 AMRAAM. The A-4K? Nope.
  14. Got the first episode of Air Combat Sim playing while I check some things out on the F-111...

    https://redcircle.com/shows/air-combat-sim/episodes/51ba55e8-9e82-4801-889b-c2fb95aa5087

    At least I know as much as the damn LCOS is a sick joke on the SF2 version, I can still guesstimate where to park a stick of Mk82s worth a damn!  Just wait until CCIP is on these birds!
