I'm easy, if definately a10 tomorrow then either vegas2 or black shark. Vegas will need patching first.

Arclight 07-20-2011 02:45 PM

Mkay, so which way are we swinging it then? If DCS, you feel confident enough to take a flight?

Got a FARP set up somewhere in a valley. Fairly long flight, so it would be a good idea to have your trimming down pat. :hmmm:

Arclight 07-20-2011 03:10 PM

Right, Ka-50 going up in a moment. Take it from there.

Arclight 07-21-2011 03:06 PM

And here comes the pig with wings again.

Herr-Berbunch 07-21-2011 03:23 PM

I'll be there eventually.
:stare:

Arclight 07-21-2011 07:24 PM

Oh boy. :roll:

As always, these things start off uneventfull.

Our tanker heads out to take up station.

I had been mucking around for a while, harassing the enemy airfield. Berbunch signs on a bit later and takes off to join me there.

Cluster bombs: if you want to hit more than you're aiming for.

Eventually I took some damage trying to hit some AAA with the Avenger. Just a few holes, but it knocked out a MFCD so I figured I'd bug out and RTB, fuel was running low anyway.

I set her down at homeplate and taxi to a parking. Berbunch had beaten me to homeplate in the usual fashion :O:, so I got to enjoy watching another take-off.

I remember commenting "and I thought I was safe here". Little did I know, those words would ring all the more true not much later.

So I'm repaired, rearmed and refueled and preparing to fire the engines back up, when I hear the scream of a pair of turbofans, getting closer. I figured "just another flyby", and since I was busy I didn't look up. Suddenly the aircraft rocks and ends up leaning right a bit. The master caution was blaring too, and I thought to myself "that must have been a close pass".

When I look up, the T-handle for the left engine is flashing. "Engine fire?" I thought, and looked to my left. First thing I noticed was part on the left wing was gone, with flames gushing out the end of what was left of it. So I lean out a bit and get a look at the engine, realising it has seen better days as well and why the master caution is nagging me.

"The ram attack is the weapon of heroes."

So I jank the pulsing T-handle, discharge a bottle of extinguisher and call my chief over. We agreed a case of beer and some scotch would be sufficient compensation for his troubles.

Just another thursday at Senaki.

Running A-10C for a bit, practice CCIP bombing and perhaps aerial refueling. (sped the tanker up a bit, should be easier to match speed)

Some nice juicy targets, just a shame they're on our side.

Yes, I owe your crew chief and his team a lot of beer and whiskey. At least he still had an airframe to work with, not just vapourised hog :03:

Low is what it's all about. And why hit one thing when you can use a cluster bomb and hit loads!

I might be able to join to the next BS flight night.

P.S. Please put those A-10 images in spoilers. They make my mouse cursor go towards 'buy' button.

What are you waiting for? :o

Buy it ASAP. Join us but ensure you're always behind me, as Arc learnt. :D

Arclight 07-22-2011 11:09 AM

Either that or be sure to put those Sidewinders to good use... :D

Mavericks will do in a pinch, but those aren't the easiest to lock onto an aircraft. :hmmm:

I'd love to but my financinal situation doesn't allow me to buy anything 'extra' right now. But I'll promise to buy it ASAP when 'fs' let's me :).

Arclight 07-22-2011 12:30 PM

Think they were on sale recently. :hmmm:

Anyway, not planning on stopping to fly these things. No rush.

Then you can read the whole string for the loadouts again. Tried it on my game and it works a treat, no worries.

Yep, and the temptation was terrible but 'fs' stopped me :wah:.

Thanks for that, edited but can't try it until tonight. :DL

@Crécy - I know what you mean, most of the time I'm in that 'fs' boat myself. :cry:

Arclight 07-27-2011 03:03 PM

Dear santa,


Ka-50, coming up.

Crécy 07-28-2011 02:37 AM

Damn, totally forgot this... Would've joined otherwise.

Arclight 07-28-2011 09:50 AM

Some flying and some shooting.

* ah right: remember to patch to 1.0.0.9 and make the tweak for the comms menu again. think they made it a bit wider by default again now but it's still cut off near the end.

** I see... seems that tweak will need to be updated.

Herr-Berbunch 07-28-2011 12:28 PM

Got a friend just downloading it A-10 from Steam as I type, am I ok to pass on the MP details so he can join us later and make me look less of a noob. :D

Arclight 07-28-2011 01:06 PM

Sure, more the merrier. It's just semi-private.

Ooh, look at you, with yer fancy-smancy award thingy. :salute:
