  1. Yesterday
  2. This is a very helpful video by a real chopper pilot helping to understand the different phases involved in landing a chopper, explaining the mistakes you are probably making.
  3. I have been practicing take off and landing with my choppers and the Harrier. I have the Ka50, the Huey and now the Hind. I managed to take off from Batumi and land on carriers about 12 miles out to sea. The landing were not in precise locations, anywhere on the Kuznetzov or Stennis was good enough. For this practice mission I added more ships with smaller landing areas, if I ever manage to improve my skill at this phase of flight.
  4. Earlier
  5. I tried the Mk20 Rockeye cluster bomb (aka CBU 100) using the F18 and it is spectacular. I need to use these more often for convoys and any gatherings, the area effect is devastating.
  6. Another community project, the JAS 39C Gripen mod. Initially it is a simple flight model using the F15 (Air to Air) and SU25T (Air to Ground). So you can fly the Air to ground version for free, but you must own the F15C from Flaming Cliffs 3 for the Air to Air version. The are actively working on the mod. They are currently developing the exterior flight model, the interior graphical quality as well as making it fully clickable. The Gripen is a fantastic plane and I look forward to the development of this mod, however I did have problems with braking and the chute. I used one of the longest runways on the planet to land on so the poor brakes were not a fatal problem. And now the mandatory beauty shots!
  7. nice, realy like the shuttle it looks very shuttley!
  8. A couple of years ago I built a Klingon inspired ship. At the time I built several ships that were capable of landing on 1g planets. Some used atmospheric /ion thrusters, but this one used hydrogen/ion thrusters which accelerated faster. At first it had two stock large Hydrogen tanks which was just enough to land or take off from a 1g planet. For space it carries its own 5x5 driller (which has to be left in space), a space welder (docked underneath upside down, how far space engineers has come that a ship docked underneath can survive a re-entry and landing), an atmospheric driller docked on one wing and a newly designed shuttle docked on the other. It has a refinery and cargo space as well as cryo chambers. It also has 4 jump drives. It now has 4 of adders liquid hydrogen tanks, so it has much better loiter time on a planet. Before you had to aim to land on a lake. It can use parachutes to help take off a bunch of speed, useful with the speed mod. Here you can see the driller docked at the rear. This is the atmospheric small driller docked on one wing. And this is my new shuttle with working air lock. Here is the space welder, docked upside down.
  9. This car actually has modern indicators, traficators were the little arms with yellow lights that popped out from between the doors of cars like the Morris Minor. I guess indicators were still new then so they called them the same name. It must be right as this is the Institute of Advanced Motorists. A couple of things, when on the motorway he flashes, then honks the car in front to get out of the way. I would never do that, flashing a couple of times should be enough, if you need to do more the guy in front is probably doing it deliberately. I liked the 2 finger salute when he passed, but did not understand the reference.
  10. Hahaha he was so nice about the guy that sling shotted him then turned left, I would have been cussing. Common drivers over here like the little red car! 🤣
  11. love this guy awesome commentaries
  12. Adder, when you have some gaming time we should take a look at Division 2.
  13. I found this gem on youtube. It's an interesting perspective on motoring nearly 60 years ago.
  14. Happy Belated Hope all goes well on the exams!
  15. Hey thanks for the messages chaps, got my exams next week so looking forward to geting some free time back and get some games in and catch up! i hope everyone is well!
