Air police in DCS is not fiction – it is reality! Recently I was flying on a pilotage server Aerobatics Caucasus. While I was taxiing on Mig-21, I received a message, “Alex, you are exceeding safe taxi speeds! Current ground speed: 38 knots (71 km/h). Stay below 50 knots (~90 km/h) or you will be removed from your plane.”
“Are you kidding me?!”, I thought, and ignored the message. (more…)
Watch how F-5 escaped from several missiles but was killed with the cannon!
A low altitude flight and dogfight with Mig-21 in close formation is a really tense thing. We have made several flights on the ACG Cold War Server. In the video you can watch a couple examples of teamwork between the leader and wingman: identification of an air target with following attacking and covering each other. It is very difficult to fight in tight formation because of the low altitude and high speed.
