  1. MiG-29 Wild Weasel

    Sidenote: I love how even flying 35+ year old Mig-29s that, whilst refurbished and well maintained, haven't received a major capability upgrade in... ever, they're still about 40 years of ahead of their neo-Soviet invaders in just about every quantifiable category.
  2. Ukrainian MiGs with HARMs

    The photo that Binkov dude used is defo rubbish (that photo is pretty famous in the West. It'd easily be in the first 3 hits in a google search for a Luft Mig-29), but apparently they are using AGM-88s integrated in something of an ad hoc on Mig-29s. Only -88Bs or Cs and with limited functionality since it's only the missile itself and nothing else. No pods, none of the integrated avionics and not full functionality. A coworker buddy of mine was listening to this guy the other day and my ears pricked up when they started talking about HARM. Still maybe take it with a grain of salt for the moment because of all the well intentioned but still unhelpful white noise surrounding the conflict (as opposed to the horsesh*t that is the Soviets' no. 1 export atm), but this HARM stuff is being reported by some decent sources which is what makes me lean towards it possibly happening. This should take you straight to the part. https://youtu.be/Qjwt2b4WzEE?t=1906 )
  3. Checkmate-SU-75

    Given that the Su-57 is technically still not 'in-service' due to it's ever increasing list of major problems, I was thinking we should start a pool for all the CA members to guess when the first Russian stealth fighter finally enters service. Only problem with that is that most of us will be dead by 2073...
  4. Isn't there a radar size/detection range setting in each aircraft's data.ini for AI purposes? I seem to recall when the first stealth aircraft started getting released, one of the main problems was AI being able to detect you from 40kms+ out (I'm not going to coddle you Imperial using folks. Grow up, learn metric and join the rest of us in the 21st century. ) and it was pretty common for whole flights to light off medium range AAMs like you were a conventional aircraft. I remember ini updates focused on the detection range setting as a hotfix to better simulate stealthiness because of limitations of the game itself. If you compare the entries in the data.inis for, say, the F-22 and Su-27, for example, you'll see what I mean. This was 'fix' was a double edged sword, however, because if you reduced the detection range too much, AI pilots would suddenly have the vision range of Mr. Magoo and would only engage at that range, even if their radar and munitions could technically engage at significantly longer distances. Failing that, you could always try LOMAC. Last time I played that, I remember the Russian dev team that bought it or otherwise took over the support of the game nerfed the Christ out of all the Western and NATO aircraft and weapons systems. I mean, the AMRAAM and AIM-54 were a tad OP with the release version, but real world notoriously underperforming AAMs like the R-27 series were practically silver bullets afterwards.
  5. Insidious though it may be, it's got nothing on the diarrhea the 'food' from Delta inflicts upon you...
  6. I'm too sweet to be salty, Turkish but you can forgive me reading this again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, again and again, ad nauseam, for 20 years and being just a tad skeptical. Now I'll be even more convinced as soon as I see actual video footage of them flying in PAF colours. If we're being honest, I'd like to see them in other colours. It's an excellent plane. But talk is cheap, and internet chatter is f*cking worthless unless it's backed up.
  7. I'll believe this story when I actually see J-10s in PAF hands. This announcement, much like the stories about them buying J-11s, has been made about 30 times since the mid-2000s by a variety of 'news' sites-- usually dodgy Pak sources like defence.pk. Just going by the sheer number of these announcements, Pakistan would currently have about 2000 J-10s in service already. Personally, I'd take this announcement with a grain of salt... ...the size of Gibraltar.
  8. YES!!! *ahem* ...I mean sure, if you're offering it, SD.
  9. JMSDF Izumo - F-35B

    Love it! Can't wait to see F-35Bs in Japanese colours jumping off the deck in the relatively near future.
  10. Out of curiosity, can the DDR's end date be edited in the nations.ini? I've also been playing around with the idea of using them in a post-1990 campaign...
  11. Really? Can you have a word with my machine then? I've tried being reasonable, I've tried threats, but nada...
  12. Does the weapons editor still work for the SF2 series? ...because if so, wouldn't it just be a matter of creating a copy of the weapon, then firing up the editor and editing these two entries to operate from a bomb bay? Lets assume the weapons bay is long enough and wide enough to house the missile, all you'd have to is: -ensure the aircraft's weapon station can load the ARM. -give the ARM a release delay of a couple of seconds so after launch, it'll clear the bay before the rocket motor kicks in. -Make sure the 'use missile rail' checkbox is left unchecked. Please correct me if I'm wrong about anything, but I'm pretty sure this is what I did to be able to launch ARMs from internal Vulcan and Victor bomb bays (pretty sure I did the same to a B-47 to fire mavericks as part of a massive CAS test), back in the day, again assuming the editor still functions.
  13. Human made climate change for dummies

    Our grandparents/great grandparents generation had unregulated pollution and wastage at the start of the 20th century. Their children changed that by demanding that pollution be regulated to levels that reduced the harm to peoples' health (ie, with things such as Clean Air Act 1956 in the UK). Their children, the baby boomers, were the driving force behind environmentalism and recycling in the 60s onwards, getting the most out of consumables and ensuring there was less of an impact by industry on health and homes through chemical sprays and the like (hence no more DDT, harmful fly sprays nor lead based paints, etc). Gen-Xers continued this trend by pushing to eliminate CFCs, single use polystyrene and the introduction of biodegradables. Gen-Y and Gen-Z have pushed for the end of single use plastics, and the eventual move away from non-renewable power to renewable sources, and so on, etc. And all the while there has been resistance to these efforts, but they've always been proven wrong and their resistance has come to nought. Who's championing the unregulated dumping of nuclear waste today? Who's dismissing the 'overblown' claims and evidence that lead poisoning negatively affects prenatal development? Where are the councils dismissing the overwhelming medical evidence that cigarette smoking is directly linked to lung cancer? Evolutionary dead-ends die out, the only thing that's been malleable is the time frame it took for these recalcitrants to capitulate and die off. This has been the case since time immemorial. So do we honestly think we will change the way we are treating this world? F*ckin' oath, because our behaviour has been changing with each generation.
  14. Looks like this one might even be stealthy. Gonna be interesting to see when this is operational, considering the Su-57 has been around for over a decade and is still languishing in testing...
  15. Strike Fighters 2 vs War Thunder jets?

    You know you've gone too far when the someone from the home of the Spanish Inquisition is telling you "Dude, that's a bit over the top. Throttle it back a bit".
