considered testing a long range P51 mission ?

I keep reading about how they flew to berlin and back. on other missions you also hear those planes beeing away for hours on end. So I thought it could be

interresting to test the DCS Mustang with full fuel and see if one can approxcimate those range and mission length.

Was trying to find a distance in DCS world that would be equal to east

england - berlin distance and then perhaps do a sunday test, as it would take some time even with a bit of time compression.

Would ANAPA -Tbilizi would be approximate a distance equal to london area - Berlin trip ?

You will be short about 150 miles.

 

About 580 from London to Berlin but only about 435 from Anapa to Tbilisi.

Fly Anapa to Vladikavkaz(Beslan), turn sout to Tbilisi, turn west to Kutaisi. Then return the same way. That's roughly London-Berlin.

In formation with a heavy or 3......

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Thx, for the route. Think Ill. set it up in the mission editor, and try it out one of the next sudays when i have time, the critical part will probably be if i can manage fly without using to much fuel, better find that mustang manual and see what throttle setting and altitude gives the best range.

Now we just need long range bombers(B-17 Lancaster) to escort....:thumbup:

 

We the Tuskegee, would just love to have long range bombers for our combat Missions...
