Recently we discussed using civil aviation in our community. At the first, I am considering X-Plane because we can install photo scenery of any place for VFR flights. Another attractive thing is flying by a crew in X-Plane 11. Frankly speaking, I didn’t believe that it can be realized and started to search how to do it… (more…)
The results of the previous flight by the group were, generally speaking, not satisfactory. For this reason that flight was analysed in detail and we developed the following recommendations for allied pilots..
For the first time, two pairs from our international group took part in the DCS WW2 dogfight on Burning Skies server.
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.
