  1. Thanks. In fact that's the answer I got from a RL A-10 pilot, I post it below, he was a real gentleman: The A-10 can carry six AGM-65, but in practice will usually max out at four. The inboard station of the LAU-88 is close to the A-10 main gear nacelle. The exhaust from the inboard Maverick will scorch the main gear nacelle, the tire and the enpenage. The additional drag and weight of an additional two AGM-65 also adversely effects the A-10 performance. The most common loadout is a single Maverick loaded on a LAU-117A on stations 3 and 9. Drag seem also to be a major concern.
  2. I always assumed that the A-10 can only bring up to 4 Mavericks. Then I saw this post on the USAF website. https://www.af.mil/About-Us/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/104577/agm-65-maverick/ Does anyone know if the A-10 can actually bring 6 in RL, am I understanding correctly?
  3. Thanks for the answer. Where in LUA must I put the script? (line nr or in wich section) I did a few trials, but no joy.
  4. Hi to all. I’m doing my 1st steps on scripting. I already used MIST and CTLD and respawn units. Now I’m trying to so a F10 Radio menu with Submenus. The idea is to open and close units in a target range but is more than 10 target ranges, so, I must separate in groups: F.1 - TR 1 / 2 / 3 F.2 - TR 4 / 5 / 6 F.3 - TR 7 / 8 / 9 F.4 - TR 10/ 11 / 12 What I would like to see if F.1 - TR 1 / 2 / 3 is selected: F.1 - TR 1 F.2 - TR 2 F.2 - TR 3 Then, after (ex) F.1 - TR 1 is selected menu disappear from screen and activate the units on that Target Range Then, if F10 menu is selected again I would like to have: F.1 - TR 1 / 2 / 3 F.2 - TR 4 / 5 / 6 F.3 - TR 7 / 8 / 9 F.4 - TR 10/ 11 / 12 F5. Close TR 1 And if F.5 is selected it “”kills”” all those units in TR 1 and if is selected again the respawn script do the job. I found the addsubmenu script that may do what I need, but have no idea where to put it in ME or if it goes to the actual LUA file from mission (or both) Thanks.
  5. Same here. This time I was sure I wasn't in negative G in a 35/45° dive, roll, and only 1 engine shut down. I agree with @Yurgon hi speed and throttle combination has some effect in this situation and also like @Emmysays, much more frequent now since last update.
  6. I saw the F117 "dance" from the cockpit ... is so cool I will let them stay for entretaining purposes Well, I always do cold start .... I like the sound from the APU .... I wonder if ..... Any way, thanks a lot for all your interest and help. Like I say above. Have learned something new with this situation, I always roll inverted now and understand a bit more about A10 procedures in flight. Cheers
  7. Sorry late response. Here it is a link for the file in one drive (it is bigger than 5MB). If possible i would like to have the feedback. Thanks https://1drv.ms/u/s!AqMUXpPB-zX6go0y84KvBw98PBrrBQ?e=j6rg7o
  8. That is good learning. Thanks a lot. I fly exclusively A10 for 3 years and never had the "pain" of flying russian aircrafts. That's why I stay on only 1, always learning something. Cheers.
  9. Thanks. I can send you the Tackview file if it help's. Honestly, I'm temped to believe it was something wrong I did. When I realise I was almost depassing the target I pulled hard the stick and had that feeling ... "I shouln't be doing this" ... Just had a look again in Tackview, and realise that in the beginning of the dive I was in negative G's for a few seconds (around 5).
  10. Gentleman, thanks a lot for your thoughts. I see here some good experienced pilots. I go for the negative G's probability. Yesterday I tried to replicate the situation over, and over, and no joy, my A10 was still strong as a Hog and no engine shut down. As I say above, I could restart them, but as consequence of the dive i was low and surrounded by mountains, so I had to eject. I thing I got in Tackview the exact moment the engines shut down, and in telemetry it says -0 G ... in movement is compreensible I did some wing shake (was my 1st reaction). Also noted the angle wasn't that sharp after all. I confess i'm not a expert interpreting telemetry, so, if someone see something that expain the issue, please step forward. Thank you
  11. During a dive attack at a very sharp angle (50/60), the aircraft shut down completely. I still managed to get an engine running, but in the middle of the Caucasus mountains it was impossible to recover. Does anyone know what can it be? I recognize that what I did is not supposed to happen in RL, but as I had altitude and a good position for a target, I decided to go ahead. My initial altitude was 20000 feet and the target was around 5000 feet. Could it be due to being at high altitude, the rarefied air causing the engines to collapse?
  12. A-10C pilots recruit 09-18-2020, 03:57 PM A10-C pilots Wildcats Vfs is recruiting A-10C pilots for the 25th FS Draggins Squad. We are a European based squad. Flights usually are at 1900Z. All skills welcome. Although Wilcats is a group with some time in the DCS community, the 25th was formed recently. For this reason, we need skill pilots as much as we have the capacity to train new pilots who are interested in the A-10C. Our trainings and missions try to integrate all the airframes we support within the same mission objectives according with the role they are designed to play. In A-10C case we try to develop CAS missions integrated with SEAD, CAP and troops on ground. For those interested in a Mil-Sim environment with casual elements, look no further. All we ask is dedication to the airframe and like for dig in the mud. See you on Discord. https://discord.gg/8g4xpm6
