Since I found this one somewhere else: Does someone know the story behind this pic?
A very impressive video to watch…. GCAS!
Found this on YT,
have fun watching it! :munch:
thank you very much for all the explanations and tipps! This weekend I flew some AG-missions (Strike and CAS). I tried to be a “good dad” and cared for my wingies, and it worked quite well!
Especially, waiting for them joining up after take off is very very important thing!
Most of the time, wingman will always use more fuel for rejoining after Takeoff. Then, it’s the job of the lead to adopt a climb trajectory that can be quick and easy to join up for the wing : make a turn, wingman will join in the turn.
BTW, ALWAYS use two wing tanks, this is the standard loadout needed for a F-16.
You mean I should wait a little for them, ok. But why always two tanks??? Is it really the standard loadout? I think this should depend on mission type, doesn’t it?
There’s so much more funnier iron, that can be put under the wings. :twisted:
I noticed in my missions that my wingmen consume the fuel at a much higher rate than me, extensive usage of the AB. E.g. when my fuel state reaches 4000 and I ask them about their fuel state it’s usually about 3000 or even less. This is especially quite uncomfortable in Deep Strike missions, because I can fly without external tanks, but my wingmen not… :neutral:
Is there a way to make them save fuel?
