Hi, Guys-
Looks like the KA-3B Navy version cannot act as a tanker like the KA-3B MC version (the Navy seems to be missing the "Wing Drogue" property entry).

Also, my reading of the EKA-3B is that it can do both offensive ECM as well as act as a tanker, but the database loadouts seems to only permit one or the other (source: footnote 10 at the A-3 Wikipedia page).

Thanks!

Hello,
can you please add late 1940s to early 1960s british Type 13 radar height finder as sensor? It was used by the United Kingdom and West Germany and usually accompanied british Type 80 long range radar. Some data:

Maximum Range: 100 to 150 miles
Frequency: 3 GHz (10 cm)
Radar Horizontal Beam width: 4 to 7.5 (sources disagree)
Radar Vertical Beamw width: 1 to 1.5 (sources disagree)
Radar Peak Power: 500 Kw
Radar Pulse Width: 0.6 to 1.9
Radar PRF: 250 to 500

nodded vertically from -1° elevation to +20° elevation
6 cycles per minute

Hi Sirius.

I know you devs are extremely busy, but with the up cumming release I have to ask. Have the YF-12 fuel consumption issue been looked at?

I reported it sometime last year, and several other have also mentioned the extremely short range of the YF-12.

It burns something like 3500kg/min at military. This seems a bit excessive considering the SR-71´s fuel consumption.

Søren

PS. Thanks for the TSR-2. That bird is truly awesome.

I noticed the SR-71 in the database only had military power, not afterburning power. I wasn't sure if there was a reason for that, if it it was an oversight.

Also, the number of bases in the CONUS and continental Europe is quite small. There are not a lot of bases used by the USAF in Spain, for example. With mid-air refueling now a reality, those sorts of bases become important because they were very often logistics hubs.

Paul,

Any interest in having the information for the Landing Craft-type gunboats/mortar boats? They were mostly used in WWII, but some did see service through Vietnam (and maybe longer in other navies besides the US)? I have pretty good info on most variations.

Let me know if you need anything else - I have pictures that could help mount placement, and lots of other reference materiel to hopefully fill any gaps.

Thanks Sirius!

Ok..first shot at this..

for BOTH CWDB and DB3000:
Argentine Daggers and Mirages should NOT have ATA refuel capability..

loadout requests:
A-4B need a 3x Mk82 LDGP/2xDT as Standard War Loadout NOT the 6xMk82s. Also change title from A-4B Caza to just A-4B.
A-4C need a 2x Mk82 and a 4x Mk82 both with 2xDTs as Standard War Loadout.
A-4Q need a 2x Mk82 and a 4x Mk82 *snakeye* with 2x DT as Standard War loadout. The Navy A-4Qs were the ONLY A-4s to use snakeye 500lbs bombs.



Just bumping these..thanks!

Just curious...would it be possible to add the NB-36H as a hypothetical platform?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convair_NB-36H
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear-powered_aircraft
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_Nuclear_Propulsion

The B-36H is already in the CWDB, so I supposed the only real change would be to give it a nuclear engine, which I guess means it would never run out of fuel.

Related to this, would it be possible to also add the Tupolev Tu-95LAL, the Soviet's nuclear-powered bomber, also as a hypothetical platform.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-95LAL

Thanks for considering these.

Hi Mgellis

The NB-36H was not nuclear powered, nor was it ever intended to be.
It was merely a flying lab to verify the feasibility of operating a nuclear reactor on-board a plane.

It worked, but the required shielding proved way too heavy, and no one was too happy about the idea of a flying nuclear reactor with all the consequences of a crash near the airbase.

If it proved feasible, there were some pretty futuristic ideas for atomic bombers on the drawing board, but the ICBM proved to be much better.

If you want a really outrageous unit/weapon added. Try this one on for size.

Project SLAM, Supersonic Low Altitude Missile (or the flying crowbar).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supersonic_Low_Altitude_Missile

I would LOVE to try this thing out in wargasm62.

Okay, the X-6, then, which was never built, but would have been nuclear-powered.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convair_X-6

In terms of scenario design, what does it mean if you have bombers that have no range limits? They aren't as fast as an ICBM, but they can go anywhere in the world, and even after they are launched, the actual attack can be called off at any time. That might be important in some scenarios.

Okay, the X-6, then, which was never built, but would have been nuclear-powered.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convair_X-6

In terms of scenario design, what does it mean if you have bombers that have no range limits? They aren't as fast as an ICBM, but they can go anywhere in the world, and even after they are launched, the actual attack can be called off at any time. That might be important in some scenarios.




Another idea...what about a nuclear-powered version of the XB-70 Valkyrie? The Valkyrie is already in the database, as the hypothetical B-70A. What about a nuclear-powered NB-70A? This was actually briefly considered in the early stages of the aircraft's design process.

http://jalopnik.com/5705672/the-xb-70-valkyrie-almost-the-worlds-first-nuclear-aircraft
http://www.wired.com/2010/12/meet-the-xb-70-valkyrie-almost-the-worlds-1st-nuclear-aircraft/

Again, my interest in these platforms is the whole question of how a nuclear-powered bomber, a bomber with no range limit, a bomber that could stay aloft for a week if it needed to, would have affected strategy and tactics during the Cold War. As before, since the B-70A is already in the database, I think all that would be necessary is to give it a nuclear engine.

Thanks for considering this one.

Hi guys,
I'm looking to create some World War 2 scenarios, the Battle off Samar especially has caught my attention as it's such a mismatch between expected outcome and what actually happened, and also because there is a number of interesting "what-ifs" that could be explored this way (What if Admiral Kurita had pressed the attack and encountered the 7th Fleet Support Force? What if Admiral Lee's Fast Battleships had turned back towards the 7th Fleet at the first reports of the attack on "Taffy 3"?) but unfortunately, quite a few of the platforms aren't in the database.
Notably, the Japanese Battleships Nagato and Yamato(!) would be good to have in there, as well as the various heavy cruisers of the Takao- , Myoko-, Mogami-class, tho these could be (very roughly) approximated with the Tone-class that is already in the CWDB.

For the US side, surprisingly, most ships are there, except for the Casablanca-class escort carriers.

It would be cool, if the Concorde would be implemented in Command.

Can we add the Hypothetical Sander-Roe SR.53 and SR.177?

Jet / Rocket hybrid interceptor for local area defence that was almost ordered by west Germany (and by potentially many other NATO nations to follow)

However because of Lockheed bribes, the F104 Starfighter was chosen despite the SR177 being the preferred option.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saunders-Roe_SR.177 (has specs)

Good documentary on it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ6WCP6W1Ts

The afterburner setting can trigger the rocket motor I imagine ?

I found a mistake, or at least I think I did, with the USSR galosh ABM. It never intercepts any kind of ballistic missile. When you manually fire it you get a message saying that the weapon has to acquire the target first even when the target missile is fie kilometers away. I checked the database out and found that the seeker for the Galosh missile is infrared and I'm not sure if that's related to the above problem.

Also, would it be possible to get the two missiles of the US sentinel program added, the Sprint missile and the Spartan Missile? Both are a great compliment to the galosh in cold war scenarios. I would post to wikipedia but I'm too new to do so.

Thanks.

1807 FE 65 Teniente Palacios Canada (Navy) 1947-1966
1808 FE 66 Teniente Ferre Canada (Navy) 1947-1966

The ship names and dates actually correspond to the Peruvian Navy not Canada. The HMCS St Pierre (K680) and HMCS Poundmaker (K675) were sold to Peru in 1947 and were commissioned as the Teniente Palacios and Teniente Ferre respectively.

Since we're seeing hypothetical units in the game, how about a weapon system that was nearly hypothetical, at least for a day or two?

Might be fun to play with these in a cold war scenario, maybe one where the US deployed them more broadly.

Ah I missed it, sorry!

Has anyone gotten the galosh ABM to work?

It would be nice to see "Kill" Markings on individual A/C,Ships,Sups.Land based units.

May I suggest to add WW2 Weapon(especially Axis Ships and Aircrafts, V2 launcher facility etc ) and hypo weapons during WW2 - Nazi Germany Z-plan or Me 262 etc..)?

I'm working on what's going to become a multi-day scenario and noticed that most of the US's conventional carriers lack the ability to replenish their escorts. The only DB entry I've seen that has it is the USS Ranger 1975. At the very least, all the post-WWII carriers should be able to refuel to starboard.

Midway Class (x2 out both sides): http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/0587533.jpg
Forrestal Class (hard to ID the ship but navsource lists it as USS Ranger) (x2 Starboard): http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/pix2/0583831.jpg
Kitty Hawk Class (looks like x2 Starboard): http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/0597528.jpg
