Yeah, I can dig it.

Still, mighty quiet in here.

I'm as much to blame as anyone as I've gone off to do other stuff, not real life, just a different game.

Feeling a bit of a Falcon withdrawal maybe. Need someone to ask questions about cluster bombs or campaign strategies or something.

Hey DBond -

Any tips for using cluster bombs? And what strategies do you use to be successful in campaigns?

biggrin

Kinda hypocritical of you considering how you "jumped ship" from one Viper to another!! biggrin biggrin biggrin

Personally, have not flown much as the main rig has been in the living room for the past 2-3 weeks as I was demo-ing the HTC Vive to a few friends. Cleaning up the game room now, hopefully be back upstairs by next week. Also following the E3 stuff regarding DCS Hornet, getting a bit excited about it and looking forward to finally experiencing DCS in VR. Carrier ops in VR... oh boy!!

Yes, why thank you. I would respond by saying that cluster bombs are a good strategy in campaigns biggrin

Ice, old chum, I know you're putting us on with that one. Or maybe not... actually I will admit to a bit of interest on the F/A-18 burnout

I've made no secret of my weakness in the Hornet and the Tomcat. Probably still won't have enough to capture my interest for longer like BMS does, but would be cool to get to know those two aircraft's systems. In VR. With carrier ops.

Doing submarines at the moment but I did have a coop-campaign with one of my swedish Falconeers yesterday (they are really hard to wake up), that Balkans/Brnik as 22nd Sqn again.
Naturally we started off with a few HARMCAP's the first few flights smile

Guess my German needs some brushing up eh?

You guys ever read the book Viper Pilot? I've been reading it again and it's amazing how loose Hampton flew. Like when you read Rosey's book everything is by the book. No chances. Hampton's book is him doing like everything you'd think would be forbidden biggrin

In Vipers in the Storm one pilot was sent home for even pointing his nose at a SAM site like he was going to strafe it. He didn't. But that was enough to be sent home. Hampton did this stuff like all the time. Interesting to compare the two.

Where is that in Vipers in the Storm (strafing SAM site)? I have both books.

Not at home so can't give you a page. But there's a spot where they talk about a pilot being sent home. I recall there is a passage where one of the other pilots says to Rosey something like 'He wasn't the guy we know, he was a wild man' or something like that. He was sent home. A member of the 4th TFS I think.

To be clear, he didn't actually strafe, but 'pointed his jet at various SAM sites'
