  4. .... just as long as Garvie Island doesn't move and catches-out The Regiment
  5. Except the next war will be in Arctic/Jungle conditions or something and the Typhoon will need 'modfication'.

    shouldn't that read ready for the last war as per SOP.
  8. A bus service, I had to wait for the flags to come down and walk to Kervaig, and there was no cafe in the lighthouse, the fishing was good mind...

    I have a feeling the mod buying it would be good, stop the crawl of commercialism into the farthest corner of Scotland.
  9. Excellent, just AEW, COIN, Long-range Bombing and Strategic Transport mods to go, and the RAF will be away!
  10. But it can't hover...

  13. Shame it still takes them about 20 minutes of fucking around between becoming Tally the target and delivering an effect.
    They could've looked at the F/A-18 that has a page on the MFD to punch a CAS 9-line straight into the system. Tiffy pilots have to write it all on their knee board while keeping their eyes on the target and then enter all the info into the system separately.
