You can have a lot of things, but you can never have too many F-16s

Those are Tom's Korea 2014 textures, from right here: http://www.benchmarksims.org/forum/s...oms-Korea-2014

(download link from that thread just in case: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ce...2014-FINAL.rar )

Great simple little mod (just drag and drop, really) and no impact on performance

Managed to avoid the Wall of MiGs (TM) so far then.

Haha, the wall of MiGs is long gone!

In my current campaign, the DPRK air force lasted all of six hours. They definitely put up a fight at the start, but were hopelessly out-fought in the air and on the ground (and that's despite the difficulty sliders maxed out to balance out for them). After that, every single one of their air bases was not only obliterated, but would continue to receive a going-over by a strike every couple of hours. Every once in a while a base or two comes back online and sends out a few packages, but they're picked up and blasted out of the sky right away.

Now it seems the same has more or less happened to their ground forces - without any air cover, they just basically got torn to shreds by A-10s & co. It's afternoon on Day 2 now and I don't think they'll last much longer here!

I've always wondered, what year OOB is the campaign set around? I know there's the default Korea campaign and...Korea 2000 I think, but is there a more recent one?

Haha, yeah, the answer is... I don't know anymore

My sense is that the current BMS default is still set somewhere in the early 2000s, albeit with a reduced commitment of allied units at the start for balance. I mean, there are only 4 USAF combat squadrons (3 F-16, 1 A-10) in the campaign at the start; it takes about 30 hours for the first carrier to arrive, and some of the ROKAF units are also not active until Day 2 - and so far I haven't seen any strategic air power arrive at all, and the only USAF combat squadrons are still the ones attached to USFK. It seems to be set up for a sort of balance more than anything, probably to prevent the game from generating too many allied flights.

There's all sorts of other flavours too, both mod and default. The "Iron Fortress" scenario in current BMS looks interesting since it has a lot of other NATO units brought in.

Hornets pulling what could be best described as some low-altitutde BS




MiG-31 dodging missiles...


...unsuccessfully


Flanker doing the same thing





If there is any lesson to be learned from this...


...it's that you probably don't mess with Slammers


Knowing when to quit...


...is an important life skill!

How could this possibly not go any other way than complete success I ask you?


Well...that's one way it could go...


Michael Bay lied to me!


Another victory for science!


I break the atom whilst Task Force prepares to take-off


Hunter shoots down Task Force with a Sidewinder from his Tempest


Task Force removes non-vital components to save weight.


And so do I...


The carrier, by this time, has had enough of our constant abuse


So I teach it a lesson by landing on it


Then IL2 itself broke....

Gear coming down on approach to Belo Horizonte


Midnight sun - a JAL 787 cruising at midnight at 68N latitude on the way from Tokyo to Boston


JAL 787 arriving in Boston after a 13-hour flight


Classic 747 cockpit on morning approach into Adelaide, Australia


Cloudy south Australian winter


Finals into Adelaide


Jetstar A320 departing from Sydney


Jestar A320 descending over the mountains of New Zealand

Part 2...


Sunrise over California's coast

Little newer - Airbus aircraft at Charlotte


Arriving in smoggy Atlanta


Taxiing to the gate at Atlanta


New colours - passing an American 767 at cruise level somewhere over Arizona


A California classic - smiling PSA jet at LAX


Descending over a cloudy Malibu


Typical smoggy Los Angeles


The now-retired America West/US Airways Dash-8 over the AMARG boneyard at Davis-Monthan airforce base
