  1. This, of course, assumes that whatever you have DCS installed on lives in a place with cell service. My installation, for example, does not.
  2. So...what is the battery duration of the AIM-120C? EDIT: I just took a MiG-29 flight in your mission 2 and at no point did either AIM-120 go active. Not during the first max range launch, nor during the 2nd 20 km launch. Both missiles remained silent and missed. So I'm thinking the mission itself might be bugged for some reason. In some flights of my own making earlier this morning, every F-15C AIM-120 went active. EDIT 2: A TRK from a flight this morning. The AIM-120C continued maneuvering for 124 seconds more or less. So, if the battery life is modeled at all, it is modeled as much longer than you were thinking. Either that or this is yet another AIM-120 bug. New AI BVR 03.trk
  3. Two missiles in this track. Neither seemed to have any difficulty in following me. In reviewing the TRK it seems both should have, at the very, least damaged me. Both passed close aboard but neither exploded. Proximity fusing? AIM-120 Proximity.trk
  4. Oh, say it isn’t so! All those years wasted searching for it.
  5. Only the switches that were already animated. Depends on the aircraft and the switch. ED did some awhile back but not all.
  6. Caucasus Map: Lupshara River Valley up to Lake Ritsa. IIRC, the Terek Valley up from Vladikavkaz to Stepantsminda (Gregeti Trinity Church—google it for end point) is pretty interesting too.
  7. Tom Weiss died a few years ago and his brother (I believe) tried to keep it afloat for a bit. But the site is now defunct.
  8. Ahhh…now I understand what you’re trying to achieve.
  9. Well, there is what amounts to a “city” (about 450 bunkers along with numerous tunnels connecting them) under Tbilisi in RL. There are also passageways connecting them to the Tbilisi Airport and other above ground areas.
  10. I might be wrong (and often am) but isn’t that how cruise missiles work in RL? They are launched at a fixed set of coordinates (fire at point).
  11. Don’t know the mission but, assuming that medium and long range SAMs aren’t being used to protect 3 tanks, just stay above their max altitude—or at least don’t penetrate deep into their launch zone.
  12. Sometime that is true, while at other times not. And the “not” occurs frequently enough for me to think that it’s not what determines it. There are places where the taller wheat colored “grass” presents no problem as well. And yesterday I found an area with short grass that did not work unless you were close to a telephone pole.
  13. Not in the location you selected for your MiG-29, it can't. EDIT: That came out sounding a bit harsh. I think you may have been talking about the Su-27 in general. And, yes, it is generally more forgiving off roading than either the MiG-29 or Su-25 are.
  14. Have you actually counted? I haven't checked in Stable but, in Open Beta, each KMGU holds 8 canisters dispensing 12 bomblets each. The nomenclature might have changed but the number of submunitions remains the same.
  15. No one is missing the point. The fact is that the ground structure on the Caucasus map is inconsistent. That's the issue, not the aircraft. In some places you can roll easily. In others you can't. The same is true of the airbases. At some airbases you can off road, while at others you will get stuck if you move onto the grass. The attached mission file was a random location pick. I do wish, however, that ED would give us a way to firm up patches of ground in the ME for these types of sorties. EDIT: That would be most helpful for a number of reasons. MiG-29 Roadside Test.miz
