Beitrag von Woodstock » 10. Jun 2008, 23:57

Welcome to 1980ies era high tech BVR air combat!
This is a glimpse at a then modern networked battlefield.
Russian hardware shines with data linked EWR/AWACS data feed,
Westerners try to keep up with AWACS voice callouts.
Are you ready to get connected?
This is "DATA LINK"!

Mission Background:
Russia and Israel (Red Side) are fighting against Ukrainian, American and German forces (Blue Side) for air superiority over the common border at the Strait of Kerch.

- Conduct Fighter Sweeps over the FEBA
- Establish Air Superiority overhead Waypoint 1

Flyable Aircraft
(in order of appearance in the respective aircraft list):
Red Coalition (Russia and Israel)
4 x MiG-29A from Krymsk Airbase
4 x Su-33 from carrier Kuznetsov
4 x Su-27 from Krasnodar Center Airbase
4 x MiG-29S from Majkop Airbase
4 x F-15C from Sochi-Adler International Airport

Blue Coalition (Ukraine and USA)
8 x Su-27 from Oktjabrskoe Airbase
4 x MiG-29S from Razdolnoe Airbase
4 x F-15C from Belbek Airbase
4 x MiG-29A (GER) from Kirovskoe Airbase

- Both sides have SAM sites covering their airbases.
- Both sides have EWR data link available.
- Both sides have an AI AWACS in the air.

Gameplay Hints:
- If you crash on an airbase without exploding, DO NOT EJECT! Please quit the mission completely
and rejoin from the menu, or you will leave debris on the tarmac and endanger other players.
- Red Side: Do not crash into carrier at all costs! Your carrier will take damage and sink after a couple of hits.
You cannot afford to lose a spawnpoint!
- Red Side: Unfortunately there is only one spawnpoint on the carrier. If you enter the mission and your preceeding comrade has not yet rolled away, you will severely damage both aircraft. Best method is to coordinate carrier spawning via in-game chat or voice comms.
- If the AWACS voice volume annoys you, go to OPTIONS, AUDIO and turn down RADIO volume to about 10%.
- If the RWR volume annoys you, you can adjust it with Alt-,(Comma) and Alt-.(Period).
- Aircraft System Failures: If you lose a more or less important system of your aircraft in flight, it must not neccessarily be due to weapon damage. All systems might fail at a fairly realistic probability rate.
- Bullseye for both sides is Waypoint 1. Coordinates: N45°05'17'' E36°36'24''


End of briefing

Teamspeak2 info:

For enhanced gameplay, use voicecomms to coordinate your flying with other teammates!

vJaBoG32 Public TS Server:
Password: euffi200

vJaBoG32 ATC Client info:

For AWACS/GCI simulation, use our ATC tool by JaBoG32_Zillion!

Connection info:
Radar Server IP:
Login: "your name"
Password: atcclient

In the menu, chose your side (red or blue) and select ALL available radar units and airport radars by clicking on them with Ctrl-Key held down.

Attention: You can not log in to the ATC client while flying on the LockOn server at the same time. This is to prevent cheating by pilots that use multiple computers. The ATC server will kick you when you try to fly and to use the ATC client simultaneously.
So it is either flying OR controlling! Teamspeak is the only way of communication between controllers and allied pilots.

Have fun!
