Yellowknife's Report Log

Post by Yellowknife » Wed Dec 28, 2011 12:36 pm

Date: 28/12/11

Call sign: Yellowknife

Online/Offline Flight? Offline, Aomori

Aircraft flown: F-18E Superhornet

Wingmen/unit: Two wingmen, F-18E Superhornet

Start point/Endpoint: Don't remember

Opposing forces: Multiple TU-22M3 "Backfires" and A-6 "Intruders"

Duration: 10 minutes

Kills/Losses: 1 x TU-22M3 "Backfire"; 1 x A-6 "Intruder"

Weapons and tactics: Mix of gun and AAM. Actual kills were achieved using AAM.

Other Remarks: After a short opinion poll on Teamspeak and a check over this section, the consensus seems to lean in favour of counting AI kills as kills, at least for the purposes of logging your first victory. Since I've just taken down my first two, I thought I might post it here. Lemme know if this is considered intellectually dishonest.

Well, better than my first kills. My first kills were over aomori, with me in a F-16 vs a 767 and 747...guess who won? Actually, I think my friend scored the kills. Dunno... :lol:

Thanks! I'm sorry, though, I don't quite understand what AA2 missiles are.

I think in future I may switch to the F-16C - it's said to have glitched agility, and one of the annoying things about this mission was that the F-18 wasn't quite agile enough to track fast-moving targets.

It was a typo on my behalf. Air to Air Missiles and Long-Range Air to Air Missiles. Also crazy is correct, although you are a civilian pilot in my eyes.. If you wanna learn to defend your self jump online and challenge some fighters.

Missiles seem to be my major problem - I engaged a non-YSFHQ pilot on WW3 last night and lost 4-0 before leaving in despair. Part of my major problem has been squandering my missiles by taking shots from non-optimal positions; Ace Combat has taught me that the only safe place to fire a missile is from directly behind an opponent continuing to fly straight and level, but I doubt that is applicable in YS. Any suggestions?

(Nonetheless, I will certainly try to rack up flight hours within the English-speaking community, although as my internet is only available at times almost to the total exclusion of YSFlight's peak, this may be tough.)

YS is cute in that, if your opponent is a good gun fighter, missiles will be more or less useless. That being said, shots from head on just as you pass your enemy can be effective. I'm not really used to missiles but mid range shots at the enemy's side tend to re-lock after a flare most times.

What time do you usually fly? After new year (my Internet is caped so I lag on a server) I'll jump on and we can have some flight time, I'll try and get flake and dragon (and anyone else I can find at the time) and we'll have a sesh :lol: .

My internet is also capped - and I'm switching from Optus to TPG as well. Double whammy! From about January 5, I should be available roughly from 2pm to 12am AEST (UTC+10) on any given day until about February 20, when I start uni. Whenever you guys are ready, I'm game.

Also, thanks for the tips on weapon use! I'll keep them in mind in future.
