Aircraft carrier missions

Hi I'm a noob at DCS.

 

I have just bought Flaming Cliffs 3 and p-51 modules I'm looking for some missions involving aircraft carrier take off and landing. But I can't find any. I have tried setting up my own mission but where's the carriers.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

I have also seen some videos of people flying f-18, but where can I buy it?

 

Thanks

If you want to fly missions with a carrier, you'll have to add it in the Mission Editor. The F-18 has not been released. The videos you see are people flying a mod where they use the cockpit of an F-15 with the exterior model of an F-18.

A simple Su-33 carrier mission. Feel free to edit it as you wish.

The only carrier aircraft so far ist the Su-33. You should be able to set up a mission taking off from the Admiral Kuznetzov.

 

The Su-33 campaign missions should all be from the carrier...

The only aircraft you can currently land on a carrier with is a SU-33 or by using a mod (F/A-18C) but it only uses the external model, it uses a Su cockpit or there is another one, which uses a (F-15C) cockpit but I'm pretty sure that version doesn't work with 1.2.10.

 

As someone has already stated you have to make a mission eg - (mission Editor),(Add or modify ship group) then select what carrier you want, either Russian or USA.

 

The F/A-18C is far from out (if only!), if you are not subscribed to the ED news letter I recommend you doing it, it will give you some information worth reading up on. :thumbup:

Thanks for all the replies.

 

I found the carrier and how to set up missions. :thumbup:

 

I only bought the game because I have an Oculus Rift DK2 on its way, but I have spend many hours in FSX and the versions prior. I like the dept of the DCS.

Now I'm off to find some graphic tweaks, because the ground textures are making my eyeballs bleed :cry:

DCS has much to offer. Obviously if you like combat, there is a benefit to it over FSX, but also systems and physics are much better.

 

On the graphics, know that DCS 2.0 is planned to come this year, it includes a new graphics engine. Higher quality maps are also coming.

There was a Su-33 carrier training mission which involved carrier takeoff, air refueling, attacking some ships and a drone and a carrier landing. It's good fun if you want some quick practice.

 

I can't wait until the Su-33 PFM comes out, which should hopefully be relatively soon after the Su-27 and the carrier landings won't be as scripted anymore.

Uh! DCS 2.0 looks very promising:)

Where can I find this mission?
