Fly random combat sorties or in a flight training mode for all your aircraft types. Great for learning new aircraft, or quick starting random fights. This mission allows you to select any aircraft you own in the game via the F10 radio menu and fly either random air to ground , air to air or training missions. The enemy spawns are always in random locations and are historically accurate targets based on the players current aircraft service life. This mission is available for all maps.
What's new: Mosquito FB VI added

This is a quick change mission which allows you to choose any aircraft (if you own it) in the game via the F10 radio menu and fly either random air to ground or air to air missions. The enemy spawns are always in random locations and are historically accurate targets based on the players current aircraft service life. The mission starts in a TF-51D but feel free to change this in the mission editor to whatever starting type aircraft you wish. You can also move the starting aircraft to any airfield on the map in the mission editor.
All aircraft and scenario changes can be made without restarting or editing the mission. Player picks new aircraft, spawn type and targets using the F10 radio menu.
A wingman can be selected to either lead you to the target or follow you in formation as you find the target.
A squadron mission can be selected. Your squad follows you in formation then waits for you to start the attack.
In flight school section you can practice landings, takeoffs, air to air refueling, carrier operations, aerobatics, racing etc.
In the aerobatic training section you join a AI formation as they practice aerobatic maneuvers.
Test your airmanship and pass a check ride exam. In a check ride you demonstrate stalls, take off and landings, etc. All within the aircrafts specified limits.
Use the preferences menu to change distance to target, spawned hard points, service life, , super carrier or cruiser for helicopter operations, etc.
Any of the preferences can be saved inside the mission editor. When you start the mission it is always configured how you like it.
Please Note: If you have the DCS NS-430 GPS module you will need to disable it. Otherwise this mission will crash.
Feedback is always encouraged. Stay safe!
