  1. Did anyone try out the loft rocket attack tactic that both sides are using with their SU-25's given the SHORAD/MANPAD threat ? Not very precise but if you know the location of the enemy forces it is doable, by putting it as a waypoint. I come in low and pull up for a loft shot from about 2 / 2.5 km from the waypoint See attached mission if you wanna try. It's quite cool, as is the low level flying by itself of course.

  2. Very strange, in one of my missions where the AI SU-25's are supposed to target vehicles like BMP's and Bradleys with Kh-25ML they completely miss their targets. I mean WAY off! When swapped in for Su-25T this problem does not seem to occur. When I fly the SU-25 in the same mission, I have no problem hitting the targets. I have the same prpblem in the latest stable build for STEAM as well as in the latest Open Beta.
  3. Djeez did I loose a lot of time with the waypoints from the ME not working before realizing something was wrong. How do you load waypoints from the F10 map? Is there a quick tutorial on that somewhere?
  4. I guess AI aircraft apply the same logic? Would explain what happened to me with the (un)friendly AI. Was in a furball situation where I was close to the bandits.
  5. I do not know if it is related, but since the latest update I've been killed two times in a row by an AIM-120C of my own AI wingman! Two different missions, 1 mission I was flying F-16C, the second F-15C. In both cases my AI wingman shoots me when I ask him to engage bandits. Is there a comms command to express my hurt feeling to my AI wiingman before I bail out?
  6. Ah OK I will try that, I think I didn't have an Area track running.
  7. Do I understand it right that when you activate LST it switches to the DMT? So the Litening pod is in the Harrier not capable of LST functionality? That would be utterly strange, it would mean the radar-equipped Harrier, which doesn't have the DMT, cannot laser track? It was my understanding that the DMT was no longer used when they installed the TPOD?

  9. Sometimes, when I dive into some enemy positions to do a good gun strafing or rocket attack, the Mi-24P abruptly banks to the the right, losing lift and crashing straight into the ground. When it happens control inputs fail to have any effect. I guess this is a correctly modeled effect of the tail rotor no longer having windstream due to the main rotor wash? Is there something I can do to avoid this?
  10. The Mi-24P is absolutely bonkers! Fantastic work ED!!!
  11. PS I think what was happening, when Mig-23's are coming straight unto you, and go wings swept back, they just disappear from the radar between about 25 miles and 10 miles, no possibility to get them back in TWS, whatever frequency / scan volume. So this must have to do with the RCS of the Mig-23 model in game.
  12. Makes sense! I have to withdraw what I said: I made a new mission, same distance, height, but other map and better weather, and now things worked normal, I could get stable TWS lock on two tracks from around 20 NM, not 10 as I posted before. I still do not understand what goes wrong in the other mission, but anyway so I have no reason to claim something is wrong with the patch.
