Well, to be fair, the us mission builders aren't necessarily trying to kill everyone or force everyone to fail the missions... :wink3

Re: Mission building guidance

It's a fair one Silk. I felt a bit bad last weekend when we were half a grid off the waypoints due to trying to Id some bogies. It crossed my mind that there might have been something lined up for us if we had corrected back on course. I think it's always been the case though that the lead adds +2K ...

Re: F Sgt Kolo has arrived at Sutton Bridge

Welcome Kolo. What is a Kolo? Is it a Taiwanese mint? You say he is a Canadian Tom but he sounds like a bloody Yank to me. Then again they all sound the same. He was definitely the lowest flying on the Boddenplatte op. What caused Merlin's BBQ was he decided to take an incendiary bomb home as a souv...

Re: New VR Rig

Thanks Gosho. This is exactly the sort of feedback I am looking for. I have enough stress during the week. I want my leisure to be plug-and-play (no Hatter , leave it!). I can see the Virpil just causing me stress! I think I'll go with the Warthog and save some money. I also think the bigger buttons...

New VR Rig

I’m posting my potential rig for VR. I’m looking for critique and to ensure I don’t overlook anything or make a mistake. Also to help anyone else who might decide to do it in the future. This isn’t to start a willy waving competition. I know these things are expensive and not everyone will have the ...

Re: Wot VR

Let me add to this thread for anyone else thinking about getting VR. I'm seriously considering it after having visited Tom (who is like a crack dealer when it comes to flogging VR! B-stad!). You knew when you invited me that it would come to this Tom!!! I’ve compared most of the headsets and tried a...

Congrats Kipp, was this the longest OTU in history? 😁
Nuh, Merlin's was muchhhh longer.

Welcome Kip.

Just a bit of advice. No601 are much better than No1 Sqn. Keep that in mind.

Re: Welcome Guests.

Welcome Scram.

If you get a chance to join No601, take it as those are real chaps. The others print their own money and are inappropriate with each other.
