DCS: AV-8B Night Attack V/STOL

This week I got the Harrier for DCS World. It's a pre-release version with many missing features, but I'm finding it a fun module with a lot of things to do.

Please join me in a couple of missions I edited and flew.

CMANO - Making Tactical Decision Aids - The Prototype in Action

I'm sorry this series has not moved fast enough. I thought of sharing a video showing how it looks in action.


Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943 - Operation Pugilist - Video Reports

I'm having a lot of fun with Tank Warfare. Given Graviteam's reputation portraying WWII tactical warfare with such fidelity, I'm not surprised that -playing as the UK- I'm finding myself in the predicament of a gigantic backup of troops aching to cross a Wadi. Pretty much like in the real thing. The Germans are making this task a few inches short of impossible.

IL-2 Sturmovik / DCS World - Strafing with the Spitfire

Let's talk ground targets, guns and WWII aircraft.

The Operation Epsom Campaign for DCW World, has you strapped to a Spitfire in an armed recon role. The Spitfire LF Mk. IX featured can't carry bombs so you are limited to your guns.

Field of Glory 2 - Trebia, Continued

Released yesterday, Field of Glory is already a favorite of mine.

My battle plans went to the dump. A very dishonorable defeat for myself. :)

Make sure to check it out at YouTube for HD.

Arma 3 - Faces of War Mod - Keyhole Positions: Be Proactive

It's September and I am feeling a bit for a WWII, British Paras action. In this blog entry, a beleaguered Para has German infantry closing on his position.

The attic from hell: I fortified the position with some sandbags and placed my character in a keyhole position. Two German squads are advancing (not a fat chance to get out alive, I know).

DCS Operation Epsom Campaign - Some Random Hints

As I mentioned in a previous post, this campaign is remarkable and sets the bar really high for other DLC content authors.

I am a bit surprised and disappointed about how little is written in the official forums these days. Ten years ago, virtual pilots used to discuss tactics, share experiences and fully illustrated debriefs. Maybe I am missing something. So I am posting here some observations and practices that are worth mentioning.
