  1. I enjoyed watching yesterdays and todays attempts, good fun flying together. Custard, I placed a Humvee at Kutaisi (north end of runway) broadcasting on 397.00 Khz, it is broadcasting KTS in morse code -.- - ... Kutaisi has an Non Directional Beacon (south end runway) broadcasting at 477.00 Khz We should be able to call Kataisi ATC using button D, I verified it today locally. I have uploaded the mission to the server and will test it there tomorrow.
  2. No problemo, it just served as another training session. We managed to square Luggage away in the Mosquito. 633 Squadron.miz
  3. By the way there are NDBs (Non Directional Beacons) at Kobuleti and Senaki-Kolkhi and Kutaisi. If you are comfortable with the radio we can use them to navigate to the dam, if we change the time of day to pre dawn, I would just need to make sure there is light when we get to the dam. Navigating towards them is not bad, then we can use a reciprocal heading moving away from them, We would need to tighten up hour flying to a more consistent speed and altitude, I was all over the place. Senaki-Kolkhi - 335Khz outer and 668Khz inner Kutaisi - 477Khz plus there is a beacon at 113.6 Mhz but that might be to modern Kobuleti - 870Khz outer and 490Khz inner With you as navigator it will allow us to be the pathfinder for the others who can concentrate on not becoming one with the scenery
  4. No worries, I planned for problems since the first time I flew the route I crashed into trees not far from the dam! Infil - Yes please, I fly on the coast and turn inland because these are easy landmarks for me to see but its not the quickest route. We take off from Batumi Exfil - Also yes please, we don't have external tanks so I am not sure if we can get back to Batumi, if you could also plan for Senaki-Kolkhi, Kutaisi and Kobuleti in case of fuel or damage problems Batumi Enemy fighters well come up the valley the same way we did so the best way is east or south, The mountains are not an easy or quick climb for the Mosquito, straight south climbs to 11,000 plus feet. Several attempts have found us out of steam on the slopes, if we finish our runs heading east we will fly away from the fighters and have a less steep climb when we turn south or even more time to climb. Thereabouts we will have to test level flight at sea level 2650 rpm and 8 boost You can download it here https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3309262/ This is the is the relevant area without Batuni We already enjoy the game, having a proper navigator and co pilot will allow us to increase the immersion. Sorry for taking so long to answer.
  5. We are up to scramble at Batumi 9 on the server. There are many additions, including Helicopter FARP near the Delta (with Ka50, Hind and Gazelle, Apache when launched). There is an airfield dedicated to Cold Start planes, At the moment there are F16s, F18s, Viggens and Harriers). Look for CS [aircraft name] in the list. Luggage has provided a new server called Sparta shiny new test server, this training mission will be on the server unless we are running a specific mission temporarily.
  6. I watched all three videos. I wish I had these abilities so I could have my own sim pit!
  7. Excellent! We might try longer range next then finally with no map marker aids.
  8. I managed to blow up the target with bombs and not too much damage to my plane.
  9. This looks good, but it os more useful than a streamdeck?
  10. There was so much in that video I had never thought about. That barrier was so hard to set up, but I imagine repacking it would be even harder. I was impressed with the little hydraulic cutter for the arrestor cable, that was at least 1.5 inches thick and cut through it like butter! I think I saw a video on the ford class Electromagnetic catapult, I'll see if I can find it.
  11. I have been practicing my carrier Take offs and landings under mission conditions. Today I started from a parking position on deck. I spent 10 minutes loading in JSOW coordinates then advanced to the catapult, lowered the launch bar, hooked up, max power and off I went. I thought I was closer to the water than usual on take off, but soon climbed. I am not very familiar with the JSOW so I focused on my instruments. Soon I was within range so I launched all 8 of them. On my instrument panel I noticed "Check Trim", I thought, weird, she's flying ok. I finally looked outside the cockpit and something caught my eye. I had forgotten to unfold and lock my wings!! Somehow she flew anyway. I tried to unfold the wings in the air, but it must have been too much for the hydraulics, so I headed back to the carrier and tried to get a sense of the speed of the approach. Normally approach speed is between 150 and 170 knots, but she wouldn't stay in the air at those speeds so I approached the carrier at 200 knots, I remembered to lower the hook and managed to hit the carrier deck. But I thought I must have missed the wire since the plane was going over the edge. Just before I hit the throttle she stopped and rolled backwards a bit. I had caught the wire but my high speed stretched it more than normal. This happened on the Stennis, it would not have happened on the super carrier since the crew signals you for every step of the launch process including unfold wings, they would not have let me take off in this state! Checklists exist for a reason I guess.
