Falklands War 2 mission

Postby ANT (EGNF) UK » Sun Mar 18, 2018 12:40 am

Hello to all the people of RAF Air UK!

One or two of you may remember me from a couple of years back when I hung around on your server regularly and observed some flying by your pilots, I may have also got in the way a bit, which I apologise for! Anyway, I am here to inform you of a mission I have been working on over the last 6 months or so because I imagine it would be a mission you might appreciate due to it's Harrier / RAF / British relevance.

The mission is a simple, fictional Falklands War 2 scenario set in late 2009, the equipment / aircraft / ships / units used are carefully chosen and named to represent those in service on both sides during this period. For example, the closest comparable ship to the HMS Illustrious available in DCS is obviously the USS Tarawa, and a comparable ship to represent HMS Daring is the CG-60 Normandy, similarly the ARA Hercules of Argentina is represented by an FFG 11540 Neustrashimy.

The mission is multiplayer compatible and is quite straight forward and linear, allowing a choice of mission styles and target types, with a reasonable amount of AI air and ground targets for both the Argentine and British sides. There are plenty of client slots including both helicopters, planes and combined arms options. I have also included multiple JTAC / AFAC / FAC units for use on both sides.

As with most missions, this is a work in progress and has been quite a learning curve but I have had good feedback from the DCS community so far and hope you can make use of the mission, even if you simply adapt it to your own needs. Any questions, advice or Ideas are always welcome.

Much appreciated Ant. You were never a hindrance, and we'd always welcome you to join us for a session.

I look forward to trying the Falklands mission soon.

Thanks.

Thanks Neil, I'll drop by when I finally install 2.5! Am waiting for the non-beta so may be a while.

Hey Ant,

I actually have your mission downloaded on my machine already! I'm just waiting on a bit of time to run it!

From what I've heard it's very good!

Matt.

Hi Matt,

That's good to know. I know what you mean by finding the time for trying the mission, It's a 5 hour + running mission if the main objectives aren't completed, there's plenty to do but I'm wondering if maybe the quantity of convoy type targets may be on the low side for you guys who, from what I've read on this forum, work fast at convoy killing!
I've tried to make the FAC controllers work, but am not 100% sure they are correctly set because I've never used FACs before myself so any feedback you could give me regarding this would be appreciated.

regards,

Ant
