Public Mission: THE BATTLE OF HOTH

Beitrag von Woodstock » 11. Jun 2008, 20:17

Get airborne in IMC and climb on top for a not so usual Suhumi vs. Majkop BVR.
Prepare for a sight like from Episode IV when you skim the tops and approach the Caucasus peaks sticking out, all white in white.
Did I mention you will need instrument skills for departure and arrival?
Man your speeder, Rogue Leader!
This is:

Mission Background:
The Red Side and the Blue Side are both trying to establish air superiority over the Caucasian Mountains and the Russian-Georgian Border.

- Establish Air Superiority overhead Waypoint 1
- Conduct Fighter Sweeps into Enemy Territory

Flyable Aircraft
(in order of appearance in the respective aircraft list):
- Red Coalition (Russia and Israel)
8 x Su-27 from Majkop Airbase
8 x MiG-29S from Majkop Airbase
8 x F-15C from Majkop Airbase

- Blue Coalition (Ukraine and USA)
8 x Su-27 from Suhumi Airbase
8 x MiG-29S from Suhumi Airbase
8 x F-15C from Suhumi Airbase

- Both sides have SAM sites covering their airbases and the borderline.
- Sochi-Adler International Airport is not useable for both sides because of enemy SAM coverage and construction work on the runways.

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.
- 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: N43°46'01'' E40°37'14''

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!
Download latest version here: ... 22&lang=en
Connection info:
Radar Server IP:
Login: "your name"
Password: atcclient

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!
