Description: We are Falcon BMS based community from Taiwan!
We do step-by-step training by referencing publicly available / unclassified docs, appreciating Falcon BMS’s as real as it gets spirit. We love flying. We fly to learn & make friends. We fly to make mistake and improve. 101st VFW is specialized in air to air mostly. We would love to humbly play aggressor role for any squadrons / CO-OP training for the community to provide the best as real as it gets experience.
Another mission is ready. This mission is for a bomb training on the Chikdo field. The mission is similar to the default BMS TE mission on Kotar. I tweaked something and changed to Chikdo. There are two targets and the real target in this mission is a circular target on the left side (see the falcon-bms map).
F16 carries 2xA9 2xA120 12xBDU33DB 2xT370 ALG184. The mission starts just before waypoint to Chikdo. The initial gross weight is 35k lbs and DI of 168. It starts in the middle of the mission, when you starts the mission, the amount of fuel was consumed around 4000 lbs. The mission file can download in here . The circular target is assigned on W11. Change the waypoint and fly to the target. You can test various bombing techniques, level, dive bomb, loft bomb, , manual bomb, and etc. Here, the following youtube shows high altitude dive bomb (HADB).
HADB stands for high altitude dive bomb. It is defined for dive angle over 30 degrees and release altitude is medium or high (over 10k’ ASL, above surface level). This has some advantages compared to low altitude loft bombing (LALB) or level bombing. It is designed for in a high threat environment and performs a bomb release above enemy ground defence system, such as AAA, MANPAD and SHORAD etc. If target is surrounded by static SAMs, the approach is not good. Another advantage is better for target recognition and bomb efficiency. Higher dive angles give a better accuracy and higher impact angle which is effective on the flat targets, such as a harden ‘flat’ bunker, etc. Downside is that high angle loses altitude quickly so that it’s hard to align target. Thus this is for better fixed target not moving targets.
To perform properly, you understand Z-diagram that is presentations of pattern and weaponeering information. The following is an example for HADB Z-diagram. It consists of various parameters, A/S: airspeed at approach (top: 400 KCAS) and release (bottom: 534 KCAS), ALT: altitude at approach (top: 20k ft) and release (bottom: 13k ft), ACD: attack cone distance (roll in toward target: 3.4) in nm, FPA: flight path angle (dive angle: 45 degree), SA: sight angle (140 mil-radian: 8 degree) in mil-radian (mr) summing of SD (sight depression) and AOA, TOF: time of bomb flight, RPM: engine round per minute in %, AOD: aim off distance in feet and angle in degree (same as SD), and Zmin: minimum release firing altitude.
The following table shows the release parameters (TAS, Alt, and Alpha), TbF (Time of bomb fall), miss distance (Err), and MR (milradian for miss distance at the release) in the youtube. The CEP which represents 50% of hit is ~82 ft.

If you send your acmi file saving the training mission to me, I can calculate these parameters, in particular CEP for you and you can know your exact CEP and error.
This is something that I have created to become more familiar with the different SAMs sites available in BMS. The threat guide that comes with BMS would be something to have handy as well. I recommend flying with invulnerability on to have greater time in the air. This is also fun in multiplayer.
From West to East I have placed SAMs in numerical order on the border of North and South Korea. The more East you go the higher the SAMs number is. With an SA-5 and SA-10 in the north.
Pay attention where the alternate field is. I have also included a tanker for extra support or just pure practice. There are no air threats.
For increased difficulty remove the threat circles from your DTC.
The purpose of this mission to to become familiar with the SAMs outside of a mission environment.

<p>@Snakexy <br /><br />Thanks for sharing.<br /><br />And now it’s time to complete the roundabout, dear mate… guess with which one? <img src=“/plugins/nodebb-plugin-emoji/emoji/android/1f606.png?v=dsk3o53jm16” alt=“😆” class=“not-responsive emoji emoji-android emoji–laughing” /> <br /><br />With best regards.<br /></p>
<p>We will be starting another TvT on the 16th of April and welcome all who wish to fly (solo or squadrons). <br /><br />Registration for Falcon-Online’s “Battle for Suez” is now officially OPEN.<br />To register to fly, please click here <a href=“https://falcon-online.org/forum/index.php?board=86.0” target=“_blank”>https://www.falcon-online.org/forum/index.php?board=86.0</a><br />read the campaign description and objectives, then register for either Red or Blue.<br /><br />A download link will be provided in the coming days for the new theatre version 1.0.3 Good luck to all and hope to see you all in the air soon.<br /><br /><em>If 4.36 drops before or during the TvT we will re-assess the status of the campaign with what the majority of players wish to do…</em><br /><br /></p>
<p>@spotdott <br /><br />Hello Spotdott<br /><br /><strong>There is no such schedule of 1300z to 2000z. </strong><img src=“/plugins/nodebb-plugin-emoji/emoji/android/2757.png?v=gcfd8gb1ch8” alt=“❗” class=“not-responsive emoji emoji-android emoji–exclamation” /><strong> </strong><br /><br /><span style=“background-color:#ffff66”>The schedule is all Sundays, 1300z to 1700z. </span><br /><br />1300 to 2000z was just a slot of time that was meant as “possible missions during these hours”<br /><br /><br />On the all Sundays schedule of 1300z to 1700z, <strong>all pilots must be present</strong>, and they must be 100% ready and focused for those 4 hours, no interruptions. Everyone makes a sacrifice to be present, which means that everyone must make the best of those 4 hours. <br /><br />Most times the Briefing + Mission + Debriefing is over before 1700z, but just in case it is necessary, everyone is already warned and ready for 4 hours. <br /><br />If a pilot is training they will get some homework to work on while they wait for next Sunday.<br /><br />From Monday to Saturday squadron pilots work alone on their preparation for Sunday, when they have some time in between.<br /><br />I have edited just now the 105th Squadron’s website to make it clear of this schedule, all Sundays 1300z to 1700z.<br /><br /><br />Thank-you for your interest, <br /><br />Morg.</p>
<p>@Morg_105TFS <br /><br />Relevant Alert Update for A-A squadrons:<br /><br />Our current pilots active in this operation have been shotdown South-East of Hwangju.<br /><br />We can not continue operations until these 2 pilots have been effectively RESCUED.<br /><br />RESCUE works as follows:<br /><br />1 — A flight of 2 RESCUE HELICOPTERS is launched<br /><br />2 — The Air-to-Air Pilots MUST guarantee that this flight can “overfly” the same AREA where pilots EJECTED.<br /><br />3 — If the RESCUE HELICOPTERS are able to overfly the waypoints over the EJECTION AREA, and are able to LAND SAFELY back in friendly base, the “MIA” downed pilots are considered now RESCUED, and can re-join operations.<br /><br /><br /><br />Any available pilots from A-A squadrons for the the next few days, report to our server, the mission will start at earliest convenience.<br /><br />Thank-you.<br /><br />LINK: <a href=“https://discord.gg/hsdNaqGECH” target=“_blank”>https://discord.gg/hsdNaqGECH</a><br /><br /><br /></p>
