Just a thought I was having ( I am tired and sometimes I think to much lol )

 

when a Human pilot ejects during multiplayer, he has the option to be eye's on the ground, in a reduced jtac role.

 

If you are old enough to remember the film BAT21 that's the kind of scenario I was thinking.

 

As a downed pilot with a radio and binos and a map the ability to give coordinates from a man on the ground perspective.

 

thoughts ? :music_whistling:

would be like trying to shoot an ant with a cannon. first of, he's not equipped, second, he doesn't know where he is, and thirdly, his morale will be devastated at the loss of his bird, the fear over his life, and the like... he's got his mind full. And you want him to be a temp JTAC? Good luck with that!:thumbup:

 

But, I do agree that BAT 21 is the best behind enemy lines movie ever (at least pre 2001 title)

AWAITING ED NEW DAMAGE MODEL IMPLEMENTATION FOR WW2 BIRDS

 

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

first of, all ejected pilots have a survival kit, second all good pilots have a map in there flight suit pocket and thirdly not being captured and killed by the enemy is a pretty good motivator :)

 

 

what would be even better is the combat search and rescue helicopter piloted by a human to pick him up :)

 

 

I maybe over doing it now lol

Me likey.. The new DCS: UH-60 Blackhawk with 2 DCS:AH64Ds in escort. Two DCS:A-10Cs flying CAS, and 4 DCS:F-15Cs flying Top-cover.. MMMM DCS goodness.

EDIT: Oops forgot 2 DCS:Vipers flying SEAD for all of the above.... MMM yummy...

Right, the ability for the ejected pilot to talk on the net using his survival radio (it was a PRC-90 when I was an aircrewman) would be limited to just a couple of frequencies, and he would be talking pretty sparingly. Clearly his focus is evading and getting to an LZ where he can get picked up. If he had to talk some friendly A-10s onto a threat TO HIM in his immediate vicinity, I'm sure he'd be more than ready to do that -- but no binocs, no laser, none of that. Just talking them on.

 

If ED devs wanted to enable the poor guy to move around on the ground on foot and allow him to get out of sight and hide, and talk on a radio on specific SAR freqs, then that would indeed be cool.

 

It would also be cool to allow AI helos to come get him -- Wags will recall how this was done in Janes FA-18 (since he was the producer there), where AI helos has a SAR function that they could be assigned. They kinda just flew around until a pilot ejected, then the closest one would respond to the downed pilot. None of it was scripted in the mission builder, other than placing the SAR helos. The pilot could not move, but he would be standing there with his little revolver in his hand, waiting. Once the helo arrived, the downed pilot disappeared. Something like this would be extremely cool in DCS.

 

Even better if the SAR helo were human-controlled, and I think eventually we've have a number of flyable helos.

 

Another feature his sim is just crying out for is air mobile capability - to allow AI helps to move AI ground troops from place to place -- similar indeed to modelling SAR ops.
