It's a little intimidating having made a character, invested funds into his team, and now we're about to go into very hostile territory with the notorious dicelog-gods looking over us.

The smell of alcohol is excessive, it's clear McCleach had been at Voodoo, probably since lunchtime. He turns in the direction everyone is looking, "Oi, YOU FUCKING COMMISH BASTARDS, KEEP IT FUCKINGZ DOWN, Mans got te gitz is facking sleep! SHHhhhhhzz!" he continues, holding a finger to his lips and trying futilely to get the Antonovs to make less noise. "I SAID KEEP IT DOWN!" he shouts, throwing a bottle in the general direction of the noise, as the last Antonov shuts down, the whine of its turboprops echoing one last time across the airfield. "Thatz better, fucking bloody red bastards. No rezpect for decent folkszzzz-" McCleach never finishes the thought, collapsing in front of the hangar, deep in a drunken slumber.

    Well Swarte finished their mission but I don't think whatshisname, the flight lead of the Lucky Guns(?) was entirely appreciative of being spared. He seems like an alright guy surrounded by jerkwads, but even then I think he felt a sense of responsibility to his flight. There exists that possibility that the Katten might be seeing him again?

    Witch here. Dravot and me bought a Tiger II while Nick and our flight lead bought F-16 Falcons for the first mission. We lost a Falcon to a fucking lucky gun shot from a Mig-21, and a Tiger II to a botched landing roll.

    So we started this mission with a Falcon, my Tiger and two Skyhawks. We met ground forces in need of assistance, so we did just that, then two choppers showed up. I blew one up with a missile, tried to stay on course to hit the other one next turn, but he was in just that sweet spot between being too close for my missiles, and too far for my guns. Cue two missiles up my tailpipe.

    Then, Dealer, the Skyhawk following me, tried a hard turn at height 1 (I think). FAiling maneuver rolls normally means you lose height. He also failed the re-roll.

    So... yeah...

    I blame it on my character being French. After so long without a proper fight...

    That said, I´m still kind of disappointed with the fact that a chopper could try and lock me for missile launch while I was very close and above it, then it did a perfect 180º in a turn and locked.

    Shee-it. Did he auger in right away, or did he get a chance to punch out after he stalled?

    >I´m still kind of disappointed with the fact that a chopper could try and lock me for missile launch while I was very close and above it, then it did a perfect 180º in a turn and locked.

    Yeah, don't underestimate CAS aircraft. Anything that can carry a heat-seeking warhead can rape your shit given half a chance. Both choppers and slow fixed-wing CAS aircraft have limited mobility, but their turn rate is generally much better then yours - you can almost always count on them being able to point their guns at you. Since they don't have any better options, they'll eagerly play chicken - either with their guns (which are bigger then yours) or with front-aspect heat-seekers. CAS aircraft generally get shot at by OVER 9,000 MANPAD SAMS, so they've got great defenses against IR stuff, both jammers and in basic design.

    They might seem easy to kill, but... yeah. Come in fast to take your shot, so you can extend out of their range by the time they get their nose 'round.

    Please don't give Sukhoi/Khornelog more OH SHI- ideas.

    On a serious note, what happened to the muskets sucks majorly. failing a ACM roll of 5 or under with rerolls then an airmanship roll with 7 of less is pretty bad.

    We here at Swart are doing well, just picked up a F-14A and are looking at at early Flanker by next month at the latest.

    On the topic of Tigers, I don't think you'd be able to get an X-29 in P&M since only two were ever made, but could you get an X-29 in P&M even though only two were ever made? XD

    >you have something against the F-5?

    YES. Mind you, its horrifically irrational and could safely be ignored. As F-22 fag pointed out, they're very cheap and quite survivable for the price...

    >Fucking hell, the amount of damage taken from ground fire seems to be insane in these games

    ... but not at low-level. Especially at low level. Which is my main dislike; it's too damn small to have much staying power in a fight, (as the Muskets are now learning) and there's little structure to soak up hits from hostile guns. It reminds me of the Oscar; a fragile, fast little knife-fighter. With wing-loading of 70 pounds/foot, an F-5 turns like a dervish, but her power/weight (and acceleration, and climb-rate) simply can't match that of larger fighters like the F-16. (Roll rate, the most important manuverability measure, I cannot speak to, since no reference book on the face of the fucking earth seems to know, or care, about roll rate.) It basically boils down to being a fragile knife-fighter with limited oomph, and my philosophy tends towards... well, pic related.

    The stores aren't THAT limited, mind you, unless you want to move mud. But the guns vex me. Two Pontiac M39s with 280rds/gun firing at 1,500 rounds/minute is... okay. Volume of fire is important for scoring lethal hits on jets that ghost through your reticule at 600 MPH, and this gun combo puts out half of what the M-61 does (6,000 rounds/minute.) On the plus side, having two guns is insurance against a jam, which could leave you toothless.

    tl;dr planefag is a barbarian cowboy who flies Jugs and Phantoms, ignore his hurr.

    Low Altitude Parachute Extraction System. Huh, never heard of this LAPES before. I assume they just throw the 'chute out the back of the plane and allow it to pull the payload out. But at that altitude and the speeds involved, isn't there high risk of damage to the vehicle and possibility of it tumbling when it hits the ground?

    Asking because it might be a useful method of deployment in future D&M missions.

    Home-grown and still in development. I use d8s and d10s. D8s for morale, handling special situations (planting explosives, field repairs, that kind of stuff) and a few more things. D10s for the shooting phase. You roll as many d10s as fire rates the weapons in a given squad have, and you have to get a result under the size of the unit you are trying to hit. Big infantry squads and vehicles carrying passengers are the easiest targets.

    well, there are the ghurkas.

    apparently in the 60's, the ghurkas were apprached about doing airborne insertion in a warzone, I think, vietnam/cambodia. (cant remember exactly). the Ghurka senior commanders sat for some time, thinking about this, and finally said, yes, the ghurkas would be able to do this, if it was very low-level.

    the military brass reaction? well, "very" low-level flight might be dangerous, the parachute might not open in time

    the gurkhas?

    Oh! we get parachutes? in that case, yes, we can do it at any altitude!

    only Ghurkas would be insane enough to willingly consider jumping out of aircraft at speed, without parachutes.

    pic simply 'cos its awesome. Obviously shopped, you can see pixels in the camo.

    In the world of Firestorm metal pipes always win. They simply dont give a fuck what you are flying.

    F-16? Chump change. F-14? Try harder next time you topgun wanna be. F-22? PPPFFFFT.

    also meanwhile at the somewhat sinister OKB hanger

    "As you continue observing the OKB flightline, you spot several aircraft being towed out of the large hangar complex. Two massive MiG-31s dominate the apron, along with a MiG-29 fullback. Another mule tows a single SU-35 from the hangar, lining it up alongside the MiGs. The aircraft are visible under the high intensity lighting on the apron, their mottled brown camo pattern and blue underside plain to see.

    Ground crews rush to service the planes, racks of weapons brought out from ammo holds being hoisted onto pylons and mounts. Alamos, Archers and Adders are slung from underneath the wings of the aircraft. Large missiles are strapped to the belly of both of the Foxhounds, although it is hard to make out their type based on the angle. The work is being done at a frenetic pace, and off in the distance you can see several fuel bowsers pushing towards the OKB area, at least seven of them by your quick count."

    I can't speak for any other flight, but mine has members that either have limited access to the net, or limited time to do so, so we can't bang out 3-4 turns a night like some other flights can.

    I don't feel like Sukhoi is playing favorites. She's just doing what she can when she can for the game. That's all anyone can do really.

    It's a play by post. The speed is variable based on how many people are around to get their posts in during a time frame when Sukhoi is around to process them. We're all busy at one point or another and that's one of the advantages of PbP games. People can post their turn when they have the opportunity.
    Yes, that means sometimes it goes slow. Remember when there was recent down time while Sukhoi was plugging away at work over the LIbya stuff? Similar case for other people. It may not be some kind of national or world crisis, but people do get busy and may not have access to the net.

    Our hired bomber guy is suddenly away with no net access beyond email 3 times a day. Sure it sucks, but we got our heads up and we'll move on.

    I mean it's not like we suddenly don't have hot running water, a roof over our heads, and are being shot at in real life. Most of us on here anyway...

    Although the dicelog is invite only, the firestorm forum is public access.

    One cool thing I noticed about the Firestorm game, is that with the entry bar set 'high' so to speak, it has kept out what I would call problem gamers. Judging from past experience, the comunity is helpful to a point, but if you are retarded they just shun you until you go away.

    Legacy Bugs (at least in my unit at the moment) are averaging about 20-25 hours per flight hour. Also consider this is the results of a full month's analysis and counts dumb shit like phase maintenance and us totally earfucking the Maintenance Action Forms (MAFs) when we are filling them out because times don't always jive (and there are plenty of times, documentation in my world could make your head spin.)

    Compared to the M1A2 Abrams which I heard in teh Marines are getting about 40 or so hours of attention per hour of operation.

    Not too shabby. To be honest a down gripe is about 8-12 real hours of work. Say removing, replacing, and running up and testing a Servo.

    Shit to be honest we do fly our planes a lot. Usually they can go up, come down, get a Turnaround (Post Flight) inspection by the Plane Captain (PC) and be setup for the next flight that day (usually within 2-3 hours of landing time).

    Also we have Hotpits/Hotseats. They go in, fuel up with engines running in "The Pits" (Fuel pits), come to line, get chained down, shut down an engine, aircrew hops out, new guy(s), hop in, crossbleed start the engine, final check, roll off to another flight.

    Of course all of that is barring down gripes and BLIN (Built-in Logic Inspection) Codes. Which are codes that tell us shit on the servos/computers/whatever isn't working right and refers us to our wonderful publications (Pubs or properly "Maintenance Instruction Manuals aka MIMs) for further troubleshooting.

    Yes, Naval/Marine aviation maintenance somewhat summarized. But there is so much more to it... Soooooo much more.

    Wasn't in in those days and I'm a Marine. I still work under the OPNAVINST 4790.2A (aka The NAMP or Naval Air Maintenance Program). From what I heard in my last command working with some Navy guys (Its a fleet replacement squadron), the older hands loved them, BUT they were maintenance HOGS in their older days. Apparently, and most especially in the case of the airframes and hydraulics. But to be honest, we're having a hard time with Legacy Hornets. Even with some late fucking Lots. It seems like it wouldn't cost ZOMG so much to at least update the computers/servos so they aren't using late 70's/early 80s technology that seems to FAIL more than it AWESOME!s. Can't give you specific figures on the Tomcat. I'd say probably between 20-30 hours of maintenance per flight hour. Most likely their specials and phase inspections were ridiculous and added a lot of maintenance time though too. So maybe like 25-40?

    Or that the flare pod is classified, and not fit for "unclassified media".

    >total game changer
    I may be wrong, but isn't the 9X supposedly able to launch BACKWARDS by just dropping off the rail and spinning on a dime? Now THAT would be a hell of a game changer.

    Look. . .it's better for them to go that way. The German ones were just scrapped unceremoniously.

    Also, the ability for short-range missiles to essentially flip in mid-air isn't exactly stop-the-presses material.

    Yeah thats what I meant, it was a long 12 hour day at work with more undermanned, overtasked shit. My shop managed to get two jets in an up status and then lost two to down gripes. Go fucking figure. And both of them require lots of troubleshooting. FML. Maybe Electrics can man up and fucking do some work for once in their lives...
    It is when your prior air tactics training focused on various aspect shots and this and that. Believe me, the 9X coupled with JHMCS (Jay-hommics as we say it) changes the way they do things, the CATM versions have been out for awhile and the JHMCS mods are rolling in on aircraft. I'm sure 9x on 9x training is being done, because now you can shoot the asshole to your left, many of the impossibles just became possibles, and tactics need to change or you might find yourself dying when you had a perfect shot.

    In our defense:
    -We're rolling along on barely anything funds wise.
    -Our flight went from most modern to 3rd most at best.
    -You guys are "ZOMG Playing favorites!" over a CF-101B. Please. If we got anything more expensive than 500 (anything late 'Nam essentially) I'd even be like "Wait, what?"
    -I'll be totally honest. I figured the favoritism was towards the Kattes if anyone.
    >No offense Kattes but if you're sitting down in our dumps you'd think the same of the best flight. Its easy to envy those who are more successful. So its not professional hate or anything. I just wish I had a Tomcat and a Flanker.

    Budgeting is extreme for our next mission and we're still rolling total shite for weapons with mediocore airframes. I don't see us picking up anything remotely nice in the near future.

    You know what? If I was running it, I'd do the same. You don't fucking kick your players out of the game for bad luck. You set them up to at least keep going and see where they go from there. I see that right here. The Voodoo is all right, for its time. But we're up against things about a decade or two more modern than that. So its on us how shit pans out. Me I fudge dice all the god damn time in tabletop games. Why? For story purposes. It moves the game, makes it a challenge, or introduces something dramatic. No railroading needed. And yes I've had characters die on natural rolls, but I felt it was needed, and the party and player continued on.

    Either this or we remain the Pariahs of the Mercs. I'm totally fine, because we at least got a bro-reputation for helping dudes even if we fuck ourselves up in the process...

    Thats fucking dedication.

    I think every flight has been rewarded 'somehow' by Suk, but it's never blatant, and it always kind of fits with the story.

    Musket failed their mission, got payed barely enough to scrape repairs, but they did do a sidequest during their mission. There was no cash bonus, but they got an old Cold War era jet (early cold war at that) and it was explained in game.

    I don't see that as favoritism, that just reeks of a good GM knowing how to tantalize players. I mean, maybe they'd have gotten the Voodoo and tons of cash had they aced the mission and the side quest?

    Roleplaying is about choices, the Musketeers made a choice, and were both penalized (money) and rewarded (bro-tier rep+plane) for their action.
    >> girder 05/14/11(Sat)00:36 No.14919442
    To be honest I don't feel all that jealous.

    Sure they got some damn good birds early, but the potential for a catastrophic loss is still there.

    I mean, the Musketeers their flight lead and one of their F-16s on their first mission.

    I'm planning on making sure that Griffin Flight is financially secure before we start buying the big guns.

    We got damn lucky last mission, but consider this-

    We just finished an escort mission, for an unpopular strike group who never came back. And the first thing we do is buy a pair of maintenance hogs, while working for a group not known for deep pockets...

    Totally not suspicious. And considering the cost of maintenance and weapons (no point taking a Cat without Phoenix's) we need to run high risk/return missions.

    Containing nearly 200 planes and variants, more missiles than you can shake a stick at and all presented in an OpenOffice calc file.

    Found here, in various downloadable versions:


    Other additions include reworked stats (semi-realistic now, where possible) & costs for all planes with expanded / optional rules for the more indepth experience.

    erm, no. The Lun-class was designed with launchers for 6 P-270 Moskit ramjet antiship missiles. Nato reporting name: ss-22 "sunburn".

    P500 / P700 was the shipboard launched cruise missile system used on the Kirov. they're slower - mach 1.6-2.5, vs mach 3.5 for the sunburn, and a heavier warhead, 350 kt nuclear or 950kg conventional explosive, compared to 350Kt nuclear or 125kg conventional warhead on the Sunburn.

    Completely different roles for the missiles. the Sunburn is an anti-ship missile, the Granit / Bazalt are longrange surface strike cruise missiles.
