Great stuff. Such a shame TK stopped developing this platform on the PC.

And such a shame the mobile version has not been fleshed out into a more complete simulator - just adding the ability to take-off & land would make it the most enjoyable simulator on mobiles.

eonel: a much talked about topic. i compared everything that's commercially selling and honestly like this one much better. this probably sums it up for myself.

Several hops with a lotta high alt engagements and high mach chases over northwestern Korea.
Obviously the campaign engine has no idea where "Mig alley" is but the name seems quite fitting.
Easier to stay up with the mig using the 86F.

Trying: 0 warheadwt, LocalObjective=TRUE






Ace AI defensive spiral.
Low yoyo to convert to vertical.
Shots on wings.
Damaged AI dives to the deck then going up to the ceiling.
Zoom climb to catch up, long burst, hits on fuselage.
Christmas tree!!!


AP hits (0 warhead weight) seems to be handled quite differently by the SF engine, things don't go aflame as often but penetrates more and does more structural damage.

Battle of Chosin Reservoir/Battle of Changjin Lake or.. the "Ice and blood of Changjin Lake"

A decisive and extremely brutal battle in the Korean war where the People's volunteer Army ambushed the 1st Marine Division, plus 3rd and 7th Infantry Division, and parts of ROK I corps around the area of Chosin. Under most desperate conditions, the 1st Marine Division was able to make a fighting withdrawal, break out of the encirclement and retreat via the port of Hungnam while inflicting critical casualties to the enemy. The PVA 9th Army fought the battle with very little supplies, almost no winter clothing in severe cold weather and still managed to drive the UN forces south. The battle marked the complete withdraw of UN troops from North korea.

As a young man this part of history was fascinating. As soldiers both sides exhibited extraordinary qualities, for the 1st marine division they're nominally outnumbered 12 to 1 or 4 to 1 if the supporting 3rd/7th Infantry was included - the PVA strength totals to 3 corps or 12 divisions, and the marines are completely unprepared for the attack. The retreat was along a single route, where the enemy mostly had control over the roadside hilltops. For the PVA they are fighting at -30 ~ -40 Celsius degrees without thermo clothing and weapons as low as 3 man per rifle, no artillery support except mortars. Both sides conducted themselves valiantly and showed unrelenting willpower in most adverse to desperate conditions.


But now I get older and take a look at North korea. Millions of lives lost and for what. I feel extremely sorry for the Chinese soldiers who threw away their lives for seemingly nothing. Under overwhelming firepower, they are human meat shields. All so that Kim can set up a dictatorship at the suffering of the Nkorean civilians. There was a story piece ('bout 10 years ago now) where a PVA company was tasked to take a hill top (terrain is mostly hilly so lots of fighting around taking and defending hilltops) defended by just a US platoon, but plus 1 quad 50cal and 1 dual 40mm flak track aka infantry killers. When morning came the brass phoned: Attack again! That hill top is vital!! The company commander replied: The whole company has but 4 guys left, comrade commander!!!.....

So anyway. Air power as usual played a pivotal role in the battle. 1st Marine Air Wing stationed at Yonpo (very close to the frontline so it's almost like takeoff, retract gear, drop bombs and land, rinse repeat Guadalcanal style. Well almost.) and carrier air from TF77 flew 230 sorties daily. Hand thrown smoke grenades and rifle smoke grenades were used to mark targets as close as 50 yards from friendly positions and some very effective marine FAC CAS were flown. Large quantities of supplies were dropped daily either via air drop and from the airfields at Yudam-ni and Hagaru-ri. On Nov. 28th the 21st airlift squadron stationed at Wonsan air dropped 16 tons and 10 tons of ammunition on Singhung-ri and Yudam-ni respectively, but airlift ops really ramped up in December with the entire FEAF committed, after the complete withdrawal of western front UN forces. From December 1st to 10th, 313 C-119 sorties and 37 C-47 sorties were flown with a total of 1580 tons of supplies dropped. In the end the 1st Marine, 3rd Infantry and 7th Infantry, and the ROK troops evacuated to the sea with most of their fighting strength intact. The last ship left Hungnam port at 14:36, 24th December 1950. A total of 105,000 combat troops, 98,000 Korean civilians, 350,000 tons of material and 17,500 vehicles were evacuated. But it is still a retreat with the territory of North Korea lost, so for the result of the battle, one leaves it for the historians.
