  1. In a tradition that dates back to IL-2 Forgotten Battles, those of us who enjoy eating baby cow pay tribute to the calf's requisite sacrifice by flying aircraft with skins inspired by the classic cow pattern. We are...the Black Veal Squadron, and in addition to IL-2 and TAW, we now have skins for the F-15C in FC3! Fortunately, the classic F-15 patten really lends itself to this, as you can see in the screenshots. Enjoy! Note the shoulder patch on the pilot. I opted for the high visibility markings and roundels because, lets face it: cows just aren't that tactical.
  2. EDIT: These skins are now available for the Su-33. Feel free to trap in style! Su-27 Volume I: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-27 Volume II: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-27 Volume III: Adversaries CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-33 Volume I: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-33 Volume II: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Inspired by some of Clave's fantasy artwork, I decided to skin the Su-27 for the US Navy. So far I have done the VF-21 Freelancers and the VF-124 Gunfighters. A number of markings have been Westernized ("NO STEP" instructions replacing the Russian "X", intake warnings, ejection seat and rescue markings, etc.). I deviated to a degree from the artwork, and I have done CAG, CO, and Line skins (though no CAG skin for VF-124, which was a RAG and was not part of an operational Carrier Air Wing). Some shots of the VF-124 CO bird: And the VF-124 Line Bird: And here are the skins for VF-21, starting with the CAG bird. I took a few liberties with Clave's idea and opted for the CVW-5 version of VF-21 with different paint schemes from the artwork. Here's the CO bird. Not quite as flashy as the CAG bird. And the line bird: All Su-27 USN skins have custom pilot graphics with western flight suits and squadron patches. I'm still working on the Jolly Rogers (though it will be VF-103 and not VF-84 as depicted in Clave's art; this is homage to my deployment with CVW-17 in 2000). I plan to do a CAG bird, line bird, and the CO bird in its 2000 Christmas theme.
  3. Given that the subject mission was included with the Flaming Cliffs 3 package from DCS, I was surprised to find what I believe are quite a few errors in the mission that render it unworkable and, most likely, unwinnable. In at least two cases incorrect units are being activated. In another case, the wrong unit is being tracked for entry into a trigger zone. The condition "FLAG IS MORE" was used when it should have been "FLAG IS TRUE" in another instance. Finally, the CAS2 orbit was set up such that they would never fly through the trigger zone that would allow their activation (or the trigger zone was placed between the wrong waypoints). Finally, the return and nearby bases were set to neutral, which would disallow repair and rearming. This might have been intentional. I suppose that with judicial use of your wingman and available CAS units, this mission could be won without rearming, but maybe not. I certainly could be wrong about some of these things, but in some cases the errors are pretty clear. If you wish, you can download a modified version of this mission with the above changes. I have yet to win this mission, so there might be other things lurking, but I have gone over it fairly thoroughly now. One additional change that I make for myself since I'm still very green is to eliminate the two SAM batteries and give myself at least a fighting chance (that change was not made in the linked version). I hope this helps anyone who might be interested. Also, I'm very open to strategy advice on this one. It seems success is highly dependent upon proper use of your available assets, mainly in terms of when they get activated.

  4. EDIT: This file has been superseded by a TARGET script with similar functionality and additional features. All development on this Foxy profile is suspended. I have just uploaded my Flaming Cliffs 3 Cougar profile to my Mediafire site. It is now available for download. http://www.mediafire...zbzm2ipxkhhenob Even though it is v2.0, this is the first public release, and the first version polished enough to use the same profile for all FC3 jets, even with differing functionality. Included in this profile are: Special optional cannon logic for Russian fighters Throttle logic, including user-defined curves and engine start/stop with idle detent (don't worry, there are safeguards against inadvertent engine shutdown) Integration with Cougar MFDs Here are the graphics of the HOTAS and MFD profiles respectively. This is a limited distribution at this point because I would like to get your feedback. I haven't fully tested the functionality in the Su-25, nor have I tested the profiles as they pertain to each aircraft to a great extent. I'm relying on you guys to provide me with constructive criticism on how I can improve the profile before distribution to a wider audience. Please provide your feedback in this thread. Also, be sure to read the readme file. Its content is critical to getting the profile working.
