    Tomcat Stories

    Tomcat legend Dale Snodgrass being spoken of. The mission was one over Iraq where they were fired upon by SAMs. https://theaviationgeekclub.com/capt-dale-snodgrass-wingman-remembers-snorts-close-call-with-an-iraqi-sam-during-operation-desert-storm/?fbclid=IwAR2y2Ql2RZsmuaMIvsLjrJN-xqT-_0OdJ9CiTG4KHTMVklvUbYmVoZe6fmo
  2. So it's my turn for this now. Figured I'd just kick this one up rather than start yet another thread. Right now, I have a 19" LCD by Dell, which works fine, but will be handing it off to my parents as theirs just died. (Fortunately, we keep an old CRT around for just these occasions, so they are not without monitor, just decent monitor. Who said keeping all this "junk" around wouldn't pay off???) I have a shelf above my monitor that makes anything much bigger a bit of an issue, but I suppose it could be worked out. Figuring that it's not an issue, I'm also looking at a physical move in roughly a year. Not sure where, but it's unlikely that I'll stay where I am now, so I'm thinking the physical space restrictions might not (hopefully won't) remain. One of the ones that comes up as most popular is a curved monitor. Anyone here have one? Is it better than flat screen? Worse? What about LED backlit vs LCD? How about widescreen vs standard screen? Price range ~$100-150-ish. Might be able to swing $200. As with the computer when I built it, I'll probably go high, figuring that a little more spent now will mean a bit of future-proofing. Future-proofing is key; I'd still be using my old monster 21" CRT if I could have gotten away with it... I"m not really partial to any particular brand, as I've noticed even the basic Dell monitors seem to be fine. Am I wrong here?

    Persian Gulf Map?

    Welp. Bought my pail and shovel. Sigh. Looking pretty good from 18,000 feet.

    A4 E Problem

    Probably not the file path. It's the same for me, and working fine under both editor and instant action.
  5. School's been ramping up lately, and Sunday is now my only day off, as I do need some income somewhere along the line. Just haven't wanted to spend my now quite limited time doing this at the moment. As for sims of choice, still IL2 and DCS. I don't fly CLOD or the other much at all, even offline.

    On the "truth" behind the Persian Cats (supposedly is really was about Iranian recognition of the AWG-9/AIM-54 combination, rather than the hard charging sale, as some would state): https://theaviationgeekclub.com/former-iiaf-tomcat-pilots-tell-the-true-story-of-why-iran-picked-the-f-14-over-the-f-15/?fbclid=IwAR0TqJNara5hNt4aL12HINJHYSaHQRFInq-bYsuF8aGKvpF8OK1LMhKJDgY
  7. Nope. My Cat's been rusting in the hangar lately. Been a little busy.
  8. This mod allows LANTIRN use by pilot in SP/MP. Might be of use for our multiplayer flights since we don't have many RIOs around... https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3303929/
  9. $10 Discout = $69.99 U.S. Pre-order version available this winter. $79.99 later (I guess). Looks like the "promised" map is a non-starter.

    Every once in a while, you get one of those absolute show stopper personalities. One of these types was a guy called "Hoser". His real name is Joe Satrapa, and he's a real character. A couple links: https://www.ar15.com/forums/general/The_Hoser_Chronicles/5-921898/ http://www.lulu.com/us/en/shop/tomcat-sunsetorg-staff/hoser-hereshoot/hardcover/product-20298856.html Audio from the 1989 Gulf of Sidra shootdown (the second to occur in these waters) of two Libyan MiG-23s by F-14As FastEagle 102 and FastEagle 107 of VF-32 of the USS Kennedy battle group: A Pakistani (of all people) website with some nice pictures and interesting statements about the history of the F-14: https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/17-photos-that-show-why-the-f-14-tomcat-is-one-of-the-greatest-fighter-jets-of-all-time.391362/
