The particular community I fly with isn't all trained and current to USAF requirements so we make a few concessions in our games. Additional things this particular experience was missing: realistic radio comms, realistic mission briefs, real CAS procedures, check-in and authentication procedures, 9-line briefs, realistic loadouts, wingman/lead pairing, debriefs, etc. etc. etc.
One of the things it did have, however, was fun, and I hope to repeat the experience. Maybe, someday, there will be enough of us online with the skills and experience to make a completely accurate mission worthwhile, but in the meantime, we have to settle with limited scenarios.
We'd love to have folks like yourself, who appreciate increased realism, to join in and help us inch towards that goal, step by step. Jump in the SimHQ TS3 channel from time to time and help us learn the skills that are needed to fly Truly Tactical(tm).
Shoot to Kill.
Play to Have Fun.
