  1. Strategic Air Command

    I have 36 SAC documents and a pilots handbook for the B-36H - but never seen one moving with a load of others parked on the same ramp - some kind of awesome sight.
  2. Strategic Air Command

    Can't get my head around this aircraft ever existing! let alone flying.

  6. MadJeff Lives! What's new in the land of flight sims?

    Wow, hi MadJeff not much new in these parts outside of what modders are putting through. Oh TK has now just put up all the SF2 games by $10 each - and if you don't know the Strike Fighters and Wings Over series was replaced by the Strike Fighters 2 series from around 2009 with the last patch now being 2013 - but they were DX10 and changes to work better on multicore CPUs at least. SF2 North Atlantic might be worth trying for starters if you like the Tomcat and intercepting Soviet bombers. DCS has this year seen some big changes with a new DX11 engine and although most modules are Falcon 4 learning curve, there are exceptions like the "Flaming Cliffs 3" module (soon to be re badged as "Modern Air Combat" with more jets) - these are closer to SF lite in terms of learning.
  7. Straight out of a James Bond film: It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese authorities systematically dismantled the agency’s network of agents across the country, executing dozens of suspected U.S. spies. But since then, a question has loomed over the entire debacle. How were the Chinese able to roll up the network? https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/08/15/botched-cia-communications-system-helped-blow-cover-chinese-agents-intelligence/
  8. Interview with Indian pilot https://hushkit.net/2018/08/15/flying-and-fighting-in-the-mig-27-interview-with-a-mig-pilot/
  9. Employee decides to steal aircraft with inevitable end result. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45153535
  10. Only thoughts at the minute are wondering what flight or sim experience the pilot had.
  11. FE 2 and SF2 should run fine on Win 10 Would suggest if not already - right click the shortcut to the exe and go to the Compatibility tab: In there tick Run this program as administrator and Disable full-screen optimisations Then go to Settings Gaming and switch Game mode off.

    Hi Antares long time no see!

  14. NA Map is just Iceland and surrounding water pretty much You can have the F-14 avionics in the Arrow if you wish but yes somebody would need to spend some time on it. SF2 Europe might be the best bet and recommend the NATO Fighters Mod in that at least to get a good terrain Also with SF2E you can get the Scandinavian Front 2 although don't think Norway is on that.there was a Norway map but might be set for WW2
  15. Ill received on the basis no one bought it is TWs line I guess or even just badly marketed I mean it has a flipping F-14 on the front cover. NA is different to the other 4 in various ways and it adds a lot to do with the Naval battles, so more bombers with Cruise missiles and ships firing tons of SAMs at them.....bomber interception is one of the main things I did a lot of in it and you have bases on Iceland anyway not just carriers...............however you can do bomber intercepts in any of the series really.
  16. Yes it is that one................turns out it might be my fault it was never put out because I was asked to reskin it and it somehow dropped off my radar.
  17. It kinda works in the latest patch despite the ramp thing............needs permission from the creator though before it can be released.
  18. DCS: Yak-52 Now Available! . DCS: Yak-52 early access will initially be available as part of the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta. The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem seat, radial engine, trainer aircraft that served as the primary aircraft trainer for the Soviet Union and many other nations. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52 has been a popular choice among air forces given its rugged construction, ease of handling, tricycle landing gear, and simple maintenance. These same characteristic have made it a popular civilian aerobatics aircraft in its later year The Yak-52 is powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower. We have created a new radial piston engine simulation from the ground up with a highly-realistic engine cooling model. The aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just one ton and large controls surfaces. Capable of pulling over 7 G and pushing up to negative 5 G, it’s no wonder the Yak-52 has been popular with aerobatic teams around the world. The DCS: Yak-52 provides a realistic pilot training progression from the Yak-52, to the L-39C jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27. Purchase in DCS e-shop Key Features: Professional Flight Model that duplicates the flight characteristics of the Yak-52 Detailed and realistic simulation of post-stall behavior that allows edge-of and out-of-envelope maneuvers Complete systems modeling of the Yak-52 that includes the engine, fuel, electrical and pneumatic systems Realistic, mouse-interactive cockpit in which almost all controls can be interacted with Accurate external and cockpit sounds that were recorded from a Yak-52 Interactive training missions included. Learn to start up, taxi, takeoff, and land the Yak-52 like a real pilot Multiple liveries as both a military trainer and civilian aerobatic aircraft Cooperative multiplayer. Fly with a friend in the same aircraft Full virtual reality support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft Mixed Reality, and others Yak-52 FAQ DCS World 2.5.2 Open Beta Update 8 In addition to providing support for the DCS: Yak-52, update 8 for the DCS World Open Beta bring several other improvements. DCS 2.5.2.20036 changelog Sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team
  19. Hi there - so you how far are you - have done this? Before installing this update you should: 1. Ensure that SF2V is properly installed & updated. (Note that SF2 and SF2E must be part of your base install.) 2. Ensure that the Expansion Pack v. 2.1 (Mar. 2010) is installed to your SF2V Mod Folder. (Also, the VPAF Add-on must be installed.) 3. This update is distributed as a two part download. You must unpack both parts. Unpack both SF2V_AG-XP_v2_Sep14_Pt1.7z and SF2V_AG-XP_v2_Sep14_Pt2.7z to a safe place on your drive. Now you're ready to install the update. If you have installed Part 1 and there is a Part 2 it should be just a case of more copying and pasting / overwriting (also for parts 2/3/4) as long as the Installation section in the link above is also followed. You should need all 4 parts to get everything required basically.
  20. The Store link and PC Download Center links time out for me.
  21. North Korea has turned over 55 cases of remains of American troops who died during the Korean War to the United States, which U.S. President Donald Trump got North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to promise to do after a historic, but controversial summit. It’s a positive step, but the U.S. government still has a lot of work to do to give the families of the fallen closure and make the most of this apparent diplomatic momentum. The White House formally announced the repartition operation on July 26, 2018, though the remains arrived at Osan Air Base in South Korea via a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III transport plane on July 27, 2018, local time. The transfer did appear intended to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice Agreement that ended the majority of the fighting on the Peninsula, which the North Korean government celebrates as a holiday called the "Day of Victory in the Great Fatherland Liberation War.” http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/22456/usaf-c-17-brings-remains-of-american-troops-to-osan-air-base-from-north-korea
