  1. That was my impression as well. And the speakers chatted about other nonsense instead of commenting the actual performance.
  2. Watch the Viggen solo display at Airpower16 in Austria LIVE today: http://www.airpower.gv.at/fanzone/live-stream.html It will takeoff sometime between 16.00 and 17.00 CET. The rest of the block isn't too bad either: Me 262 (solo), Eurofighter Typhoon (solo) and Frecce Tricolori. Todays entire program can be found here: http://www.airpower.gv.at/flugprogramm.html#c3883
  3. Bofors is Swedish, not Swiss. Just saying... :smilewink:
  4. Speaking of doctrines, if we look at how the Soviets had started to organize "front group HQ's" in the late 1970's to lead and conduct operations within separated sectors - TVD's (Teatr Voennich Dejstvij or Theatre of Military Operations). Each HQ could carry out operations within their TVD's. Europe was divided into three TVD's: TVD South West, TVD West and TVD North West. What makes this doctrine interesting from a Swedish perspective is that Sweden is located in two of these TVD's (North West and West): This meant that Sweden would be subject to attacks by units from two TVD's in the event of war. Eventhough the main assault would come against NATO countries, Sweden could not have avoided being dragged into a conflict in Europe based on this doctrine.
  5. I think this is related to DCS not being launched in true fullscreen by default. I always hit LAlt+Enter as soon as the menu shows up before doing anything else to make sure DCS is actually in fullscreen mode.
  6. Same bug but with Su-27 in AI wingman won't pick up speed even with full AB's and eventually goes surfing like the MiG-31's above. Seems like this has been an issue off and on for a while: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=149459 http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152011 Same problem with F-15: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=158200 AI Su27 speed issue.trk
  7. Any news on fixing this? Really breaks immersion to have McCarran all dark.
  8. Anyone else having problems with missiles not launching at all sometimes? Pylons selected, lock tone, missiles uncaged, holding release button but no joy. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Tested with a buddy in MP last night and successful launch seemed to be totally random.
  9. 2.0.3 is worse than 2.0.2 and 1.5.4 for me in this regard. DCS picks up axis on my TM Warthog and MFG Crosswinds but mapping levers, buttons and switches is a real chore. Often I have to pick an option from the drop-down list to make it work.
  10. Since there are always a lot of strange bindings when a new module is installed, I always clear all axis and re-map them from scratch. I also clear all view commands assigned to my stick by default. In previous versions (both 1.5 and 2.0) I have marked a binding in the column I wanted to clear and then clicked the clear button. That wiped all the bindings in that column. When doing the same in 2.0.3 I clear all the columns at once. Is this a bug or a feature? Sometimes I only wish to clear that particular column I have highlighted and now I have to clear the bindings one by one to prevent clearing everything.
  11. The Draken wasn't designed to attack ground targets. It was designed as a high altitude interceptor. The ground attack role was taken care of by the A35 Lansen until the Viggens came along.
  12. Sure. It is probably possible from a technical point of view. If you have an array of REALLY large SSD's that is... The Caucasus map is approx 500 km2 in size and NTTR approx 600 km2. Together with the currently available modules that requires roughly 60GB of SSD storage space. The surface of the world is approx 500 million km2 so do the math... On a more serious note, FSX, P3D, XP10 and all the flight sims using the entire world as a playground work very differently than DCS. 1. The scenario is built around landclass and terrain mesh and if you want it to look good you will have to add high-res textures which also would require an insane amount of storage space if you did it for the entire world. 2. In those sims the only interaction with the ground is during takeoffs and landings. In DCS you are supposed to fight in a combat environment. Find ground units hiding etc. That requires a highly detailed scenery. 3. In DCS you need working roads and bridges etc. In the sims you mention that is purely cosmetic and made to look good flying at a bit of altitude. In DCS it should look good at ground level as well. And collision detection is required to work with ground objects in DCS which isn't the case on FSX and other sims. So a combat flight sim can't really be compared to FSX, XP10 or P3D. But I agree, it would be awesome to fly around the world in a DCS level aircraft and in DCS level scenery. But I'm afraid that it isn't quite possible any time soon.
  13. I really like this tiger stripe as well:
  14. I use the Warthog throttle flaps lever and the boat switch: Warthog flaps lever Flaps lever - Step down: JOY_BTN23 Flaps lever - Step up: JOY_BTN22 Boat switch Flaps switch Aft: JOY_BTN9 Flaps switch Fwd: JOY_BTN10 Note that the Flap switch Aft/Fwd is reversed i.e. Step Aft is boat switch forward and Step Fwd is boat switch aft. This setup is working for me.
