To Enable LIVE STATS
You will need to edit your MissionScripting.lua file.

Edit your MissionScripting.lua ("C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Scripts") so EasyStats may create and save data.
Comment out sanitizeModule('os'), sanitizeModule('io'), sanitizeModule('lfs'), and require

It should look something like this...
    
    do
      --sanitizeModule('os')
      --sanitizeModule('io')
      --sanitizeModule('lfs')
      require = nil
      loadlib = nil
    end

 

Things to Know:
ADF Homing Audio Signal - Please be aware the morse code audio may come in and out during your mission but signal should remain.
Ambush Attacks: Uh1 Hueys and Mi8s will need to stay vigilant as its very possible you may be attacked randomly by insurgents while in Enemy Territory.  
SAM Threats: SAM Threats are very likely , fast and low is the way to go when performing troop transport ops

@ElementLT, thank you very much! Hope you get our small but warm Russian donate? Can you help us about ground assault missions? If we select more than 1 player it's meant few players will have same assign? And work on task do it together?
Also my friends ask, is it possible to translate your mission to Russian?

hi! @AlexZander_D thanks you for the support! yes exactly! if you select more then 1 player for a ground assault mission its intended to be used for multiple players to fly the same mission but it  can also be used to change the level of difficulty if you choose to do so. So if you want a real challenge for example and you are the only pilot running the mission, you can select a 2 player task which will offer more enemy units to kill - at the moment i have no plans on translating the text but this can be done by looking thru the code. My codes is very easy to read so it wouldn't be too difficult to do...maybe just a bit time consuming

Are units that seem to be random spawns (not related to your tasking)  supposed to disappear after some time?   I've engaged units like this and they just go poof after a bit kinda frustrating

Any help contacting the Hollywood FARP with the Huey? I've tried every frequency between 127.3 - 127.9 and all I get for the F10 option is for engine start-up.

hey @DD_GreyKnightI do not believe there ware any incoming coms for FARPS just yet but will look deeper into this. I did come across this older post.

hi @KungFu, YES - to help with performance the random ambush units that may randomly appear while in route to your target will automatically be removed from the mission after some time. Again this is to help with performance as leaving these units on the mission as is could slow things down after some time. The amount of time the units exist can easily be change in the code or even disabled (which i do not recommend)

Ok, so there is no point in engaging them then....they would disappear even when I was doing a run on them and I was wondering where the hell did he go?  A BTR isn't that fast to clear a 200yard field in 5 sec.   I understand the performance hit due to unit, typical to this sim.

Many thanks for this.

Is there any way in which the Gazelle could be made a troop transporter / pilot recoverer?  Shame it's limited to CAS.

TIA.

Will definitely allow the Gazelle to transport troops on my next helo mission

Hello, a question! there is a possibility to delete existing missions if they are not completed. can?

for example, I couldn't finish two missions! The enemy vehicles have spawned in the forest and couldn't be seen! in the second the enemy vehicles were destroyed by their own tanks and the mission did not end!

Hi,

I have just discovered this mission and I'm enjoying flying the transport missions in Huey. I am keeping my head low on the treetop level (sometimes hugging the ground if possible), but I still get shot down often. What is the intended play? Should I load some rockets with me and shoot back? Am I choosing a wrong (straight to the target) path and should I divert via some remote area first?

 

And because Mi-24 should be a bit more durable than UH-1H, would it be possible to give it transport task as well? You know, there is a compartment for 8 troops or 1500Kg of cargo...

 

Thanks

@ElementLT,

hi, just discovered this mission and gave it a go. Very nice idea & setup. However one question , flying the Mi-8 on troop insertion and CSAR, I often get

homing frequencies like ADF 48.4 Mhz or 46.8Mhz.  I'm probably having a brainfreeze moment, but on which radio exactly am I supposed to pick those up and home in on?


Because the Mi-8 ADF works between 150 -1400Khz.

The other 3 radios work on these bands:

R-863 VHF/UHF 220 to 399.975 MHz

YaDRO-1A HF 2 to 17.999 MHz

R-828 LVHF 20 to 59.975 MHz 

Unless I'm wrong the only radio capable of tuning these is the R-828, which you CAN actually use for homing/navigation , however, as far as I know, in the DCS Mi-8 there is no way of manually tuning the frequencies for the R-828 , you can only select between the 10 preset channels, but you don't know which frequencies are behind them. They are preset in the mission editor and not visible to the pilot in the aircraft.

Anyway I had a look at the presets in the mission editor and even those don't seem to match the frequencies I get assigned in briefings.
So how am I supposed to navigate to my insertion or pick-up point in the Mi-8?


Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

Snappy

Greetings,

A few questions to ask.  This may seem like a necro but this is the "official" thread for the mission.

1) Any specific issues related to this being a 2.5 mission that may make it malfunction in 2.7 and beyond?

2) How to add the AH64?  I am not at all familiar with the DCS mission maker beyond simple unit placement for my simple missions.

3) Is there another mission of the same nature that has taken over for FARP Hollywood?
