Dear Friends and Simmer ,
First i would want to really thank the guys behind this game who made such a sim available to everyone to play Also many thanks to the authors of the manuals of the game, for taking the time out of their real life to write such informative manuals and make it possible for the rest of us to be able to understand the Sim . Your work is really appreciated.
To topic. :
1- I have read the three manual ( dash 1 , dash 34 and the navigation chart manual ) along reading those manual i kept practicing the TE mission more than 6 times or even more each so at the end i have a decent knowledge about how things work and such ( but not yet like the exprienced guys on here ) . So after That i wanted to give the Campaign a try ( Korea ) so i started the campaign But the Problem is that the TE mission only train you on a specific part , For instance , Go down this route , bomb (x) then back. So its centred on how to use the avionics and the ammunitions related to the Mission .
But when i entered the campaign i found myself in a full war going on and i don’t know what to do or how to employ the information i learned from the TE and the manuals to help with the Campaign, Also things are moving fast that you have to react quick let alone the stress i get doing the mission because of enemy aircraft that pops up.
In another word how do i play the campaign the way its suppose to be played?
Am i a commander in the full war that i should worry about everything that moves on the map and get involved with it and give it order to move ? or am i a pilot that gets orders from the HQ to go do this and do that and i should wait for the order to come to me ?
Im not expecting that i would be very good at playing the campaign right away but i want to know the A and B
Im a bit lost.
Another thing is that during my first mission ( A DEAD mission i picked and clicked fly now ) i didn’t find any pre planned threat circle around the target area like it was in the TE HARM training mission . Is that something the HQ do for me or is something i have to do myself , The TE mission gave me the impression that its done for me by the HQ .
If it’s something i have to do , What SA number i should assign to the threat circle , like SA2 or SA3 or what ?
2- The Loadout assigned to you bu the mission , Is it mandatory for the mission to be successful, or i can change it . for example if i want to change a GBU 12 To GBU 54 to destroy a bridge , can I do this?
3- Another thing but related to Navigation.
In The first mission in the campaign, the Mission route starts at STP 1, at Kimpo AIRBASE. The briefing say STP 3 is rendezvous with Package . I waited at this point for the package but they didnt come to this point , So i continued to target STP . i took down the target and i headed back . on the way to the Kimbo airbase i contacted the tower within 30 NM to ask for the landing Runway , the ATC kept saying Hyoun air approach runway 02 , First i cant find anything called Hyoun airbase or anything similar also Kimpo doesn’t have RWY 02 , its either (140 L R or 320 L R ) what is Hyoun air approach .
And why i have to go there if the landing STP is at Kimpo Airbase as per briefing.
4- During my startup i wanted to set the DATA link , so mine and my wing man was already setup but for the rest of the package it wasn’t set also the other friendly aircraft like the AWACS , i kept looking in the briefing and the flight plan for any information on their DATA link addresses but i couldn’t find it , how do i know the addresses for a specifc package flying along the war zone for another mission . for Example
My DEAD mission included a pakage of F16 that is doing CAP mission while i fence in for my mission, where can i find their data link address so i can set it in my UFC .
Thanks in advance for everyone’s help. And really sorry for the long questions
