  1. If you are struggling with the Mission Editor - it might not be you, it might be ME. Maybe this series of videos will help.
  2. No Reason to be concerned if you are having trouble landing in DCS. Flying slow and stable is an unnatural act for most DCS aircraft. Maybe this will help
  3. As we all know, most new DCS pilots first experience with DCS will be the Su-25T - which gives this series it's name. A bit more overlooked is the base model Su-25 which comes in FC3 or stand-alone at a VERY ACCESSIBLE price. Between them, they provide a great introduction to the world of ground attack in DCS. I have been working on a series of videos as an introduction to these aircraft. Hopefully they will be useful to new players who are just getting hooked, and maybe of some interest to veterans who have moved on to the higher-end addictions offered by DCS. Here are the first two videos https://youtu.be/0vnqWUjw1ks https://youtu.be/FlxsDpbRFwA
  4. Is the CCRP in the A-10c bugged? What about CCIP CR mode? I did some testing. Have a look and see what you think.
  5. See what happens when you put 3 factories, 24 Skyhawks, over 50 AAA guns, two dozen Mk. 83 bombs and a couple hundred Zuni rockets together and shake vigorously
  6. Here's another installment. This time showing using the A-4E bombing computer that will come with the EFM once released.
  7. Here's another installment of Iron Bombing Tips and Tricks. This time a demonstration of how to fly a blind approach to a target in the A-4 using the Nav computer. Even without a modern HUD, it is possible to arrive make a precision low-level drop. You can try this exercise yourself if you download the Iron Bombing Test range mission: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3312663/
  8. After a bit of a break, here is a new Haiphong Harbour video - a massive alpha strike on a factory complex. Enjoy!
  9. Here's another practice you can try with the A-10c on the Iron Bombing test range. This time we use mavericks to take out those pesky Shilkas before taking out the high value target with some big boy bombs... and all the while staying under the SAM deck. It's Hawg heaven
  10. New mission available. Here's the release video of Rudel flying Rockets at Dawn. Here's the mission link: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...files/3313178/ And - BTW - there is a Sidekick Discord Server if you want to drop by and talk about these missions: https://discord.gg/bXhcWZd4nW Enjoy!
  11. Doing it Hawgie Style! To celebrate the release of the A-10c II Tank Killer we show that it, too, can be a fearsome Iron-Bomber. This video also used the Iron Bombing Test Range mission. Download it and give it a try.
  12. Another installment of Iron Bombing Tips and Tricks. This time we look at the "tactical pop-up" technique with the A-4E and the AV8B. The video was filmed using the Iron Bombing Test Range mission that you can find here: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3312663/ Go ahead and download it and try it yourself!
  13. Guys - I am trying to decide where to put the effort in making new videos and missions, if you could let me know what you think of this series, I would really appreciate it. Would you rather see more "story" videos like this - or more "tips and tricks" type tutorial videos? Or would you rather see videos featuring different aircraft. I'd really like to know!
  14. Episode 5 - In which we toss some Rockeyes at Syrian Infantry by the lakeshore. This episode includes an added bonus in that shows off the CP-741 bombing computer that will eventually be included in the A-4E EFM.
  15. Get Your Hawg On! Here's a suggested mission you can fly on the Iron Bombing Range (https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3312663/) Snipe with Mavericks. Put a big Warhead on some Foreheads. And then go round a few times chewing up vehicles with 30mm rounds. HAWG Heaven. Give it a try.
