    Or even better, with some rules.

    You climb into the cockpit, your sprints soaring ahead of your crate.

    You tap the ignition switch and bask in the heady whine as the supercharged quasirocket of an engine spins up to speed with a loud crashing *THUNK* and then silence.


    You note the most amazing shade of orange erupting straight through the forward control panel before it all fades away.

    The crate, and your glorious flight career, evaporates in a ball of fire.

    Then end.

    Got an email back from Steve he said he's writing the next contracts up. I have told him about /tg/ and the help we've had, and he's said if you don't want the RPGish side of the rules, he can give you the base air combat stuff.
    "I simply took it from a game and modified some stats that were inaccurate. The RPG elements, are attached on to make PCs more capable and tough then the original tabletop ruleset allowed for. I didn't create this game from nothing, I built upon a system I enjoyed, by adding RPG elements to it, sort of like Crimson Skies."

    I wrote him back saying you guys want any rules, and am waiting for his reply.

    ugh...stupid formatting...fixed

    It was a thankfully peaceful night in this particular stretch of the South Atlantic and Ensign Kamal Benayache of the Royal Moroccan Navy was glad of it. Any dog watch was a pain in the rear at the best of times but at least quiet ones didn’t leave you feeling like camel dung the next morning.

    Kamal had dealt with rough nights on watch before. The Atlantic was not a forgiving place and many a night had found him concluding his watch in the middle of a raging South Atlantic storm. The placid seas outside the bridge windows tonight were a blessing and he offered up yet another prayer of thanks as he got up from his seat to stretch his legs. Not that there was much room to stretch in on the cramped bridge of the RMNS PV-7.

    The Osprey 55 class patrol boat was one of the smaller warships in the Royal Moroccan Navy but the four vessels in the class were coveted posts for young officers looking to gain command experience. Not only were they at sea a good deal of the time but they were also known for allowing ensigns more opportunities to stretch their fledgling command authority in duties that weren’t just training exercises. There was a lot to do on a fifty-five meter vessel with a crew of only thirty-six after all.

    >> Skyhawk !c6DO1M4BMw 03/19/10(Fri)14:55 No.8665432
    Finishing his stretch Kamal circled the bridge. The man at the wheel was obviously tired but he’d straitened himself up when Kamal had gotten up to stretch and was even now looking much more awake than he had moments before. The ensign nodded to him and stepped up close to give the radar screen a brief scan. Nothing...’Just as it should be,’ he thought contentedly. But even the powerful surface search radar wouldn’t pick up everything. Small rafts, bits of garbage, and even modern zodiacs wouldn’t show up as more than a flutter on the radar screen...and just one missed contact could ruin Kamal’s night. That was why, even with modern technology, the Mk-1 Human Eyeball would never fall out of use.

    Kamal left the radar screen and stepped out onto the tiny starboard side wing platform where one of the pair of duty lookouts were posted. It was a cramped space, meant only for one, but often occupied by many more on certain occasions. The seaman on duty didn’t seem to mind the intrusion in any case as his attention was elsewhere. The huge pair of night-binoculars he held looked like they’d been glued to his face. Kamal wasn’t sure how the man did it but whenever he came out here the binoculars were there...attached to his face like some strange limpet that never came off.

    “No sightings?” Kamal asked, even though he knew the answer.

    “No sightings, sir,” came the man’s reply; The same reply he’d given dozens of times and would probably continue to give even after Kamal was long gone from the PV-7.

    Kamal nodded and opened his mouth to reply when the world turned itself on its ear.

Oh yeah, the base ruleset is 'Air War' but I've changed the stats in a few areas, and added some small things here and there. The biggest difference is the pilot skill/abilities which took some time to balance. And my own cost sheet for aircraft purchases, since the original game isn't designed for an RPG"

    I should note that it is an absolute bitch to get images into a wiki. Or at the very least I have no idea how to do it successfully

    If we did get a good array of images together however... That'd be worth the effort of figuring it out.

    Maybe, dunno how many drawfags would do that sort of thing. I saw a couple of people, including sukhoi, make similar requests in a drawfag thread earlier but no one seemed interested.

    I think they're too busy dealing with requests asking for daemonettes tentacle raping sisters to care about awesome shit like this.

    Thanks for the info OP, if possible could you ask him for his changes, and maybe the pilot skill system.

    I'm planning to run a campaign like this myself sometime, and his battle rules would be very much appreciated, not as worried about the RPG elements of his system personally, as I'm likely to homebrew my own anyway, but if possible they would also be quite nice to have as reference.

    Your AMRAAMs?

    Good luck getting within 30miles to launch them at a Flanker. Especially since the Flanker can see you BVR with IRST and have a salvo of AA-10ETs on the way before you have Launch Authorization.

    And that doesn't even include the Flanker pumping enough power into the sky to see through your 'low observable' stealth system 60 miles out, where, I add, it can engage you.

    Flanker IRST will be lucky to detect anything 15 kilometers/ten miles away. The plane is for dogfights and airshow stunts, and the screw-stealth-i-has-radar approach the Russians have abandoned with their 5th generation fighter.
    >> Anonymous 03/19/10(Fri)18:46 No.8669426

    Yeah, I guess you can apply anti-radiation missiles to enemy fighters, but unlike SAM sites, they're moving at mach 1.5, so all they have to do is shut off their radar every now and then and they'll be safe from incoming missiles. Hell, all they have to do is shut their radar off when it picks up an incoming bird and jink a bit.

    Most A2A these days have built in active radar homing, but you still need to turn your radome on long enough to aqquire a bandit and fire.

    Someone is totally not getting modern air combat. Compare with Eurofighter, F-16, F/A-18E, Gripen. None are true stealth plane but detection is still the most important issue. I like to think we've figured that out after Bekaa Valley.

    Someone gets the idea!

    Flanker detects "Low Observable" Stealth (F-22, F-35) at LONG Range. Sure, the F-22 will know where the Flanker is, but the same goes the other way. Then it becomes a range game. Flanker has an advantage there. Then it becomes an ammo game, Flanker (12 Hardpoints) wins again.

    As to AWACS vs AWACS, if you think an E3 would be operating in the full out conflict we are talking about, you're mistaken. Besides, as mentioned already, the Flankers are capable of detecting nose cold planes on their own, outside the engagement envelope of the enemy.

    It's two different strategies for the same conflict, and until said conflict occurs, we'll never know which is better.

    lolwut? We're discussing the intricacies of modern BVR combat!

    Which is something I need to learn. Most of my knowledge, as of late, is derived from engagements between aircraft that have less then a 1:1 power/weight ratio and the primary weapons are limited to rapid-fire kinetic energy weapons at visual range.

    Hey, now that makes sense. Thank you.

    'Course, that's not a problem if you consider that F-15s can easily slug it out with a Flanker, but the Flanker has the ability to *force* a BVR slugfest with everybody's cards on the table, by making the F-22 the Highly Visible Ninja.

    >Detection probably has far more to do with comparative AWACS support, anyways.

    Exactly, AWACs have 200+ range detection. The "W" stands for Warning. So the powerful radar while nice isn't that much of a big deal except in an interceptor role w/o AWAC support.
    The big fail of the Su-27/30 is that it has a big ass that is easier to find and easier for missiles to home in one and harder for the poor bastards flying them to escape.

    In the context of the Russian export arms industry, that might make sense. Lots of smaller nations don't have AWACS support worth beans.

    Su-27/30 hater here, the MiG-21 is a fucking godly aircraft. Actually I go further to say only the Mig-15 is better in a dogfight, and yes dogfights are what you have when your A2A missiles don't work. Downside is of course shit range and payload.
    The F-5 has a similar performance and USAF pilot trainers routinely pwned students in F-15 who didn't give it their proper respect.
    >> Anonymous 03/19/10(Fri)19:07 No.8669813

    weeellll, stealth is never "compromised," planes aren't invisible, they can just get closer to radar without being detected. Even if an F-22 is detected, it can get closer then it otherwise could, and it can break radar-seeking missiles lock easier.


    Actually, last I checked, the MiG-21's power/weight is slightly better then the F-4, but not by much. Also, the MiG-21 doesn't really turn that well (look at the little fucker, it's a tiny dart,) but neither does the F-4, and they both roll quite well.

    It's all down to pilot skill, since there's no obvious performance disparities I can peg, besides the F-4 being significantly faster.

    There's lots of speculation, but for security reasons, it's not released. Maple Flag, Red Flag, all exercises where the F-22 is around, are tightly controlled by ROE so that certain situations (Radar Heavy AIrspace, F-22 without Awacs support) don't occur. It may seem like a dick move, but the Russians do the same thing, they forbade the Indians to utilize the full power of the MKI Flanker in exercises with foreign nations.

    Silliest idea I've heard in a long time. Firstly the most secret part of the plane is the radar so most countries will operate their radars in training mode only except among their most trusted allies. Secondly anything the Russians are willing to sell to the Indians is not likely to be top secret.

    >tanks on is a plus

    I can see you've had way too many engagements with morons. What game do you play?

    What I'd do if you tried this on me would be to perform my own high-speed yo-yo, popping above you and rolling inverted to keep my lift vector on you. Naturally, you'd counter by diving away from me, and I'd follow you. Now we're in the vertical scissors. Since most pilots will combine this with a bit of a barrel roll, we'll end up in the rolling scissors, (pic related.)

    In the rolling scissors, the pilot who manages his energy the best wins. You need to conserve as much as possible. So your F-4, flying dirty with tanks, would lose, unless you ditched them, in which case it'd be a close fight.

    I got to talk about the rolling scissors on /tg/ and it was on topic. Hold on, I'm going to smoke a cig. BRB>

    Doubt you could, once we're engaged in the scissors, you can't really re-direct the fight. The guy who leaves the scissors first gives advantage- and a shot- to the enemy.

    Now I usually play WWII sims, where it's easier to survive, because guns are the only weapon and their effective range is only out to perhaps 300 yards on a manuvering target. With heatseekers in the mix, anybody leaving the engagement is going to get a heatseeker up their ass quite quick, even if you hit the cans and unload for speed.

    Also, if your best tactic is to RAM, you're not doing it right. :3

    Actually, he's not far wrong. What he's said so far is fair (play to your aircraft's strengths, don't go into the horizontal versus a MiG,) it's just painfully clear he hasn't fought against experienced sticks, if they all fall to a simple yo-yo defense. He's beating those MiGs because their pilots are idiots, not because the MiG-21 is deficient. It's a clean fighter with better power/weight then the F-4. Hell, Dave Cunningham, a Vietnam ace, got into the exact same engagement I've been describing (rolling scissors) with a hot MiG-21 pilot and he disengaged twice by hitting his 'burners, because he felt that kind of fight was the MiG's game.

    (He didn't have guns on that Phantom, though, so he was flying dirty and even if he won the scissors, he'd be too close for missiles.)

    Alright I'm not a super duper plane studyer.

    I go to /v/ so I enjoy the vidya and simulators, so figure this with my online skill at the F-4.

    Usually when a mig even comes onto my ass I begin the roller coaster, we continuosly spin like faggots vertically. Looping as I play with the throttle to lower our drop until I'm around 150 feet when I come to pull up again.

    The migs are not as lucky, but if they do get the pull, thats when they push throttle up to catch up to me, who has just sped away from the drop.

    Aim9 what else is there to say?

    .4nm is optimal range for your standard agile heat seeker, not much distance but they turn ALOT better.

    Aim 7 my personal favorite, head ons and pincers become fucking useless. Straight lines are this weapons killzone. So if you B line it in any way, YOU ROSE CHONG.

    optimal range 1.8 nm.

    My father flies an Intruder, two guesses on what we do.

    But its me playing a game :C

    Plus I do like the criticism and enjoy defending my argument.

    I stand to the fact that the F-4 is just as good, or even better than a Mig-21.

    The F-4 is the superior plane. If you use it right. The -21 can catch an F-4 napping though, and if drawn into a turning fight, can down it.

    Heh, sounds like you are in fact fighting in the rolling scissors. Man I need to look into this game, it sounds fun.

    >Aim 7 my personal favorite, head ons and pincers become fucking useless. Straight lines are this weapons killzone. So if you B line it in any way, YOU ROSE CHONG.

    HAHAHAHA, I can appreciate that. Noobs in online sim games always go for the head-on, and it's annoying as hell. "PUT PIPER ON TARGAT AND PULL TREEEEGEERRRR"

    >Really though, all of you who have been making the thread more /k/ and /v/ should delete those posts.

    Not at all sir! These conversations about dogfighting in the vertical nicely describe why vertical manuvering is so important- and furthermore, why any dogfighting tabletop ruleset without some appreciation for 3D manuvering is woefully deficient.

    This ruleset Sukhoi found HAS that, though, so it's clearly the best thing ever.

    I usually practice in instant action.

    It throws you into late 71 or so into operation Thunder.

    So you've got bombers in the operations area going to pound charlie.

    Migs are on your ass, even worse you don't get wing control and they won't respond to your situation ( usually, some have bailed me out )

    I'm at about Angels 20 going 430, Pull on the stick, 19's are the first engagers not as bad as the 21's. Take those out with guns or a missile if you're feeling cocky.

    21's come into range, you've probably dropped to Angels 5 because of the fucking 19's.

    Loop the first mother fucker, ( usually its an ace, wingman ) he's gone, the rest scatter.

    The part that pisses me off is the 21 pilots know a lost situation, so I spend most of my time chasing them down. When its all said and done I've got about 150 pounds of fuel or what ever.

    Todays practice was 9 kills, 3 were 19's.
