I've only got A-10C, and so far very limited time on it, but willing to join in so that you can take the heat off the rest of you guys when I crash

All I need now is the wife to bring more work home so I get some ME time!

Edit: I'll probably splash out on BS next payday! Has anyone seen it for less than £25 (€29) recently?

Edit2: After visiting PC World this morning and seeing it for £24.99, I've just found it for £14.97 on their website.

I only have Ka-50, but yeah I'm up for some flights with that...and I do not mind some practice first...there's still a lot to learn for me as I just know the basic and firing my ordinance still is a bit of a mess need to improve on that.

as for combat missions, I guess after a few practice session we could do small combat missions suitable for the amount of players we have then to test the stuff we practiced in combat situations

I have the A-10 less than a week and a hard time get off the ramp
Still, I´m interested in some fun flights, keeping the A-10 in the air is no problem.

I don't have A-10 because I do not have a proper joystick for it but I'm up for ka-50 flights!

Combat missions are fine for me. I think I've got enough experience for that from several SP missions I've flown.

I wouldn't mind flying both, though missions with an objective other than flying around would be preferable. I can decently operate the Ka-50, I think, but I haven't used the A-10C nearly enough to know what I'm doing yet.

Well I still have that mission I set up for training: convoy aproaching, some airborne whirly-threats and plenty of targets, both defended and sitting duck. Carrier to land on, think I'll add a FARP to land at as well, they can be pretty challenging.

We can start off with that. People who just want to fly a bit can form up and take the scenic route, people who want some action will find plenty of targets.

I'm no editor wonder-boy myself, but perhaps we can find/make some more involving missions, provided there's interest. Personally I always make them with a fair amount of freedom. No fun being pressed into an attack on a strict timelimit while you're still coming to terms with the weapons sytem.


I'm glad to see a positive response. Simply love flying the things, would be even better with some company. God knows I tried whipping the AI into shape, but I'm still more likely to get a mid-air collision than an "affirmative".

And you come to us expecting to get different results?

At first, yes. Untill we can fly such close formations.

Basically a ramp start, take-off, low-level scenic flight and a landing. I'll set up basic firing ranges at both the start and end locations, so people who just want to mess around a bit before or after can head over there.

I'm thinking about only setting up the flight lead with a flightplan, so wingmen will have to practice their navigation and formation flying. (not expecting tight formation, just keep in contact with flight lead)

You don't have to be familiar with the weapons deployment, but of course a decent understanding of flying it is desireable. For example, if we fly the Ka-50 over a mountain ridge, it's a good thing to know where the anti-icing switch is at. Also, you don't have to be familiar with airport procedures. For example, if you want to do a rolling take-off and a landing from hover, then that's up to you. Not going to force anyone to stick to exact procedure.

Both TeamSpeak2 and TeamSpeak3 servers are available.

I would suggest Wednesday or Thursday nights, perhaps both if there's enough interest. Could do Ka-50 one night and A-10C the next.


Anyone interested?
I'm in.... PM me

I'll host A-10C tonight, Ka-50 went well enough last night. Just need to prepare something.

Looks good, I'll be the smoking tangle of metal just off the runway!

Had a quick go of the tutorials yesterday and learnt that you can take off with the canopy open - when I say open, it detaches half-way down the runway. Flight envelope unaffected

Alrighty, here's the deal for the A-10C:

  • blue for friendly airbase
  • red for targetzone
  • green for free-fire zone
  • the black bit... well, that's a Tor battery. Don't stray to the W from the targetzone and you'll be fine. Just a little something to make you think about ingress and egress points.
Weather is pretty much the same as for the Ka-50 setup.

If anyone needs me, I'll be on the parking eating pizza.

Default Well that was a laugh!

Wish TS had been better for me. Found the screenshots, they're in a user's saved game folder like SH3 does

Here's a few for you.


Arclight just landed as we're holding.








Following Arclight on his Maverick run. Thought about firing , but didn't




Any landing you walk away from...!
