Re: Realistic AAR (and other) Orbits

Yeah, the way they do airspeeds in the ME is definitely not straight forward. If it was a ground speed though, the indicated speed should change depending on where in the orbit it was, assuming the wind is not set to zero. I'm all for whatever gets us a tanker going at a decent speed. If that formul...

Re: Realistic AAR (and other) Orbits

Curious where you got that formula. Is that something from ED? I don't know how they calculate TAS, but in the real world, it is based on pressure altitude and air temp. Neither of which are in that formula. So, is it just something to get you in the ballpark, or is that how ED calculates TAS?

Re: 16 Jan 2022 - Damascus Dawn Week 5

Yeah, same. I'd love to take a Huey if I can just for a chance to do something different. Even the left seat would be fun. But, I'm fine with a Hornet as well. Needs of the the Navy and all.

Re: Excellent Hornet Radar Tutorial

Oddly enough, without having any previous direction on which should be used when and just trying to figure it out, I guessed that high PRF should be used close in and medium should be used at higher ranges. My thinking was that PRF basically determines the space between the pulses. If a high PRF is ...
