    Hello Mad bull's


    A big congratulation on your 20th years as a virtual wing. What a ride is has been. So many things has been updated over the years, the level of realism has increased and with that, the skills needed to operate the systems in the aircraft also made it a challenge to master. I wish all the best for the future of the Mad bull's. :birthday


    S-RDAF will also turn 20 years next year in June. What an amazing journey it has been and whatever lies ahead of us I'm sure many more years of learning and enjoying this sim will be in front of us.

    Copy all Bloodhound - good points.


    For any future coordination what do you guys use? Discord or something else you already told me about, sorry, my age - be gentle! ^^


    For the next mission preparation, I aim for one week before, mainly to be attended by flight leads of the planned flight. As the previous flight you will be responsible of air cover and we will take out the ground targets. So a coordination between the leads in this setup makes good sense in my point of view. The better the groundwork of the leads, the faster we can do the briefing and get in 3D. Time is our adversary when people need to get up for work on Monday morning.


    I am the Mission planner for the next and the third flight, and therefore I take a step back when it comes down to the lead task and planning in among the flights, I know to much... ;)


    I therefore suggest that we make use of a package commander that define how the mission will be done from the tasking provided by my planning. Hope that makes sense.


    I'm currently done with the main flight planning and will begin with the ground targets distribution for the two flights that are currently planned. These two ground attack flights needs to be protected. The sooner you have an indication on how many pilots you will bring, the better. Our situation, as I have mentioned a few times are limited to four pilots at best.


    I wish you all a great weekend. :beer2

    Alrighty guys - it time to reflect a little on the first mission flown on Sunday the 3rd.


    - Any future flights will be done in packages. My mistake on the first setup - is fixed for the next mission.


    - The mission will have one overall MC and one package commander. It will be the package commander that will be in charge of the task assigned and the individual must be able to do the coordinating stuff one week ahead before any flying will take place. This means that the package commander must be able to assign the available pilots in the package on what is needed to be done.


    - The most important thing is the time we have in the 3D world. Therefore, getting into the 3D world must happen no later than 30 minutes after the briefing on the final details have been briefed. A well prepared flight is mandatory. So I will in any future planning go "gold" with the mission files and related materials no less than one week before the planned flight. My wish will be that the reported IN from our virtual pilots will hold and thereby give us time to work with what is known. I'm very much aware that RL always tries to fuck up our possibilities to get behind our desktop pit, technical problems, illness, those things happen and nothing can be done about it. We adapt and overcome.


    - We need to enhance our coordination, so I suggest that no later than one week before the flight, a meeting on TS is the way to optimize the mission ahead. This meeting will be held with the MC and the package commander and flight lead pilots.


    Please give me your thoughts on how you see we can optimize on this. Anything we can do to make the flow smother is in my interest.

    With the first flight done and everyone being able to return, that was the main success for me. No technical issues other than a IP number issue. What a great way to start. BDA will be done over the coming days and the result of the first mission will be provided when ready. I had a great feeling after the flight was done and the laughs on TS afterwards was a clear indication that is was ended a fun and good mission.


    I want to share some images from last night.

    Test went well. Files for Sunday are ready.


    Tasking are as follows:


    VJS-161 - four ship --> TARCAP - protecting SNAKE


    VJS-161 - two ship --> DCA - Protecting TIGER


    SNAKE are to engage ground targets at Trelleborg - primary target is Radio/TV station


    TIGER are to engage SHORAD battalion in Malmö - Alternative target is the SA-2 site placed at Malmö air base if AI does not perform as desired.



    NOTE: DO NOT change any skins


    Link for the files needed: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/oj8…yprn-HG61Ip0e-T6bUsa?dl=0


    Should any questions arise and the need for adjustments, it will be done on Sunday when everyone is online to the server. If major changes are needed, all will make a save game, when/if needed, then disconnect from the server, close BMS and reconnect to the server afterwards.


    (Server is running 1000 mbit download and 500 mbit upload)



    Time to join our TS. We plan to start the briefing at 1930 LT. Coordination between the flights will be done after the master briefing is done. We look forward to get things moving and enjoy some quality time with you guys. :)

    Intelligence update on the situation between Yellowland and Redland.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The past few days, activity has increased near the border between Yellowland and Redland. Redland armored units, SP artillery units and Mech INF units have been reported moving out of the army bases they normally operate from. All indications point them moving to the north. Indications are battalion size units, so a formidable force is on the move. So far two tank battalions of primarily T-80 tanks with supporting vehicles have been confirmed to be on the move along with one battalion of 2S19 self-propelled artillery vehicles from their base in the south of Redland. Furthermore, three HQ battalions have left their barracks and have assembled on the outskirts of the city of Kristiansand, Kippan and Höor cites. Near the border crossing where the skirmish between the two nations has played out, Redland forces are now dominating the area and civilian police units are not present anymore. Intelligence sources also show that three mobile SAM units all SA-6 systems have been reported to be active just south of Yellowlands border. No hard locks have been reported by Yellowland military aircraft, but the system is active and is tracking actively. Yellowland civilian air traffic has been restricted to flying within 20nm of the border to prevent any unprovoked accidents.


    This leads to concern by the UN security council and the NATO command. Therefore, with the backing of the UN, NATO have activated relevant NATO member countries and have begun the deployment of assets to bases in Denmark. The operations have been given the title BALTIC ENDEAVOUR.


    Nations that have put forces on high alert and are currently deploying units to Denmark are:


    · USA


    · United Kingdom


    · France


    · Finland


    · Norway


    The US has deployed the USMC carrier LH-1 ESSEX to the Baltic and has 8 F-15E from Lakenheath on standby, ready to deploy within 12 hours. 4 EA-18G have been deployed to Wittmund AB in Germany from the Mediterranean carrier group currently on task in that region. Two B-1B bombers are currently on standby in the US and can deploy with very short notice.


    2 E-8A JSTAR aircraft are currently on route to Aalborg AB from Greece.


    2 KC-135R have left Mildenhall, and have deployed to Aalborg AB.


    12 F-16C from Spangdahlem AB in Germany have also been activated for deployment and are able to move within hours.


    The United Kingdom have reported that they will deploy 10 F-35B to Karup today with all the needed support to maintain operations from Karup.


    France have stated that they will be ready to deploy 8 Rafale and those aircraft are to arrive to Skrydstrup within a few hours.


    Finland have deployed 6 F/A-18 that will arrive at Karup AB.


    Norway have provided 6 F-35A to Karup, they are to arrive today.


    NATO has deployed 2 E-3A AWACS to Aalborg AB.


    Denmark has 16 F-16s ready to support the situation if action is required.


    Yellowland has beefed up their operations and have activated their armed forces and the air force has increased operations. Armored units and artillery units are on high alert and have been reported by Yellowlands government that they are ordered to move to forward areas near the border, ready to counter whatever Redland intensions are. Two Patriot SAM sites have been put on high alert and are monitoring the skies over the region.


    NATO has close consultations with Yellowland regarding the situation and confirmed the full support of NATO, should REDLAND begin to escalate the already high tensions between the two nations.

    Flight plan files and updated tasking are ready. Will do a MP test session with MIL around 0900 today. When done I will share the mission files for Sunday. Tasking has been altered so S-RDAF will do the A-G tasks and VJS-161 + Santas little helpers will be tasked to DCA and TARCAP.

    Just to add some information on this regard. Stallion is the four ship that VJS-161 are assigned to

    Time for a little update.


    I hope your LAN party went well. I saw a post made in the BMS forum, and looking at the pictures I know that we (I) missed out on a great event. I hope I will be able to join you in 2024 with some of my team members. We will fit in like a glove...


    Due to some unforeseen conditions, I would like to postpone our mission start to December 3. Lack of available pilots, RL and timing - I feel it's right to push the mission forward. First of all, I need your confirmation that the Mad bulls are able to fly on this date. If not, we will have to push it into January 2024.


    Status of the planning.

    1. Flight plan for the first flight is done

    2. Mission Intel is 90% done

    3. Briefing material is 80% done

    The final adjustments needed are the total number of pilots joining in from the Mad Bulls and our unit. Those will be done no later than the day before the flight. All materials will be shared no later than 5 days before the flight is to take place, so all lead pilots can work the details with their wingmen etc.


    Feel free to ask any questions that might pop up. Not everything can be given a clear answer, there will be the element of the fog of war. :evil:

    Hello VJS-161 pilots.


    I hope you are having a great LAN party. :cheer Look forward to see some pictures from it. Enjoy your time with hopefully great flying session and no technical issues. :beer


    Best regards from


    S-RDAF and NIL

    Hi NIL,

    I will make two installations, U2 and U3. So I can fly both. But I‘m sure that Baltic will be updated to U3 soon aswell.

    Yeah. It's already out, but I will not do a complete remake of the standalone version of Add-on Baltic. It is to time consuming and I only have one life. Remember that the version Max is providing is not the same as I have done. Also the JanHas models are not available right now for U3. Therefore I do not plan to run the update anytime soon. All my work will be wasted...

    With the release of 4.37U3 and reading the change log, we decided NOT to go with this update. I breaks every theater, model etc. So We are staying on version U2 for now. If our planned event are to work, I hope you will stay on U2 as well... Please confirm on this matter.

    Really enjoyed the flight we had last night. Now, the next session will be something completely different, a lot more action can be expected. As I mentioned after the session ended, I will work on the skin issues on the US F-16 pilots. Files will be shared before we embark on our next flight.
