[ADDED DB pre-v436]

I am working on an Operation Morvarid (Pearl) Scenario, which would need two Cape-class PCs included in the database for Iran (Iran received 4 in the 1950's). According to the COA Naval SITREP #37. Oct 2009, the stats for the PC in HARPOON IV are as follows:

Cape Class PB:
Displacement: 85 tons
Size: VSmall
Propulsion: Diesel
Signature: Vsmall/Noisy
Weapons:
A 1 X Mk3 40mm/60 Aft
F X 2(4) 2 Mousetrap
2 X DC rail with 6 Mk-9 DC
Radar
CR-103/Generic Nav Radar
Max Speed: 20 kts

Mousetrap gear replaced by F (2) 1 ZU-23/2 AA gun in 1980'S (probably after Morvarid)

Thanks,

Mark

MQ-9 Reaper loadout.

Unable to post links/images yet, however if you head over to "foxtrotalpha dot jalopnik dot com" and read Tyler's article entitled "Drones In Afghanistan Have The Most Advanced Aerial Surveillance Ever" there is a photograph of the Gorgon Stare Increment II pods on a taxiing Reaper providing increased wide area surveillance.

Note the system is multi-spectral and the two pods provide stereoscopic vision for parallax/range estimation.

EDIT: Another article entitled "USAF image appears to show Gorgon Stare Increment II in Afghanistan" at "janes dot com" features further photographs and information.

Late Cold War B-52G Loadouts - 4/6/2015 9:43:13 PM

[ADDED DB v436]

NOTE! If you switch from Sustained to Surge ops, the ready time will drop to 20 hrs.

...If I could, I'd like to suggest an addition to the B-52G nuclear loadouts. At least from 1983 on, standard alert load for the BUFFs was:

4x B28 or B83 (by '85, most if not all the B28s were gone)
8x AGM-69 SRAM
12x AGM-86B on pylons

Let me stress that this was the alert load, so it's possible that EWO loadouts were somewhat different - but during exercises (I was assigned to the 379th BMW at Wurtsmith, '78-'84) we had enough weapons and pylons to load all the aircraft. Loadout 6842 (4x B28, 8x AGM-69) is absolutely correct, but only up to the time an individual bomb wing stood up with AGM-86.

Also, the ready times seem a little long - we routinely loaded the entire wing (IIRC, 12 to 15 birds, depending on whether or not we had any at depot) from a standing start in less than 24 hours.


Just my .02 - love the game and look forward to every upgrade.

Best regards,

Mike Kozlowski

[ADDED DB v437]

Would it be possible to add the Chinese Type 093G SSN? There have been a couple articles recently suggesting that China has built a new variant of the Type 093, which carries YJ-18 missiles in a VLS launcher and has a new hull form. Perhaps we will get more information in the next few days, but in the meantime, would it be possible to get a Type 093G which is slightly quieter and carries a VLS with, maybe, 16x YJ-18s?

Forum won't let me post links yet (not enough posts), but there was an article in The Diplomat on 4/6/2015 by Franz-Stefan Gady called "China's 'New' Carrier Killer Subs" in their 'Asia Defense' section. The original report is apparently from Chinese media.

Thank you!

[ADDED DB v437]

The bulk carriers need some bulking out - they're one of the most common classes of civil ship, but there are only 3 (rather smallish) classes in the DB.

This (slide 7) is a high-level set of classifications of bulk carriers.

I would suggest adding the following classes:

* Supramax [50000DWT], example
* Panamax [70000DWT], as there are a LOT of them, example
* Very Large Bulk Carrier [150000DWT], example

These cover the overwhelming majority of what bulk carriers you see in AIS data, providing a richer commercial maritime environment.

Do you have a source on that? The only verification of that number I can find is on wiki, and the source it's quoting is a Russian page that 404s.

Minor database correction. DB3000 Weapon (CBU-105 using the CBU-97 with LU-108/B anti-armor bomblets) is listed as being used against land targets or soft mobile vehicles. The manufacturers’ brochure (http://www.textronsystems.com/sites/default/files/pdfs/product-info/sfw_brochure-small.pdf) lists targets as "lightly and heavily armored vehicles, .... SFW also has maritime interdiction capabilities with deepwater, littoral and shoreline functionality to engage amphibious vehicles, fast attack boats, hovercraft and small naval vessels." Possibly increase the valid targets to include mobile units (hard) and surface ships.

The valid target issue with the LU-108/B Anti-Armour bomblets also affects the AGM-154B JSOW (ID #827) which carries 6 submunitions containing the 4 skeets pictured above.

[UPDATED DB pre-v437]

All of the C-130J aircraft engines are listed as having only "2x AE2100D3".

This should be 4x.

Looks like only the J variants are affected.

It it possible to update the map with new island reclamation's by china? I know it's a work in progress so any changes now will likely need to be updated soon. If this is a possibility I will try to post more info.

I'm pretty sure that anyone who knows the AIM-120D's real operational range also knows that it's classified...

[ADDED DB pre-v436]

Canada: 2 aircraft that i think should be added to database.
CF-101 Voodoo. It flew in front line air defense till December 1984.

CP-107 Argus. It flew missions till Mid 1981 (last misssion July 1981).

X-47B UCAV (#3169) successfully engaged with a tanker last week and is set for actual aerial refuelling this week.

Worth adding Probe Refuelling as an aircraft property to enable AAR?

Not sure if already requested somewhere, but I was fooling around with the F-20 Tigershark currently in the DB and noticed it doesn't have AIM-7 capability of any sort. I had thought that those were intended for use on the F-20, and a quick Google image search brings up what looks like a few photos of the F-20 firing Sparrows. Obviously lower priority on prototype-only platforms like this, but it would be nice to have.

Newest Db has the sparrow loadout and its in our just released update.

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3845738

If you're editing an old scenario it will use the db its was created with and you'll need to upgrade to the latest db. See the manual for details on rebuilding.

Thanks!

Looks like it will be retired after the test too.

Yes, it's a shame given the amount of testing and integration that was originally planned. Given the ongoing A-10 cancelled/reprieved saga there's always hope they can secure funding to continue the original program.

[ADDED DB v440]

Flightglobal dot com have an article entitled "Danish air force planning Challenger 604 mid-life upgrade" which detail the Danish MPA aircraft and upcoming mid-life upgrade waiting for financial approval:

- Challenger 604 base platform
- Satellite and Radio comms
- AN/APS-143B(V)3 Ocean Eye (DataSensor #2679) [1]
- Star Safire II FLIR (DataSensor #4122) with EO (#???) [2]
- Maritime Surveillance and VIP Transport loadouts/roles
- Mid-life upgrade is also to add a Side Looking Aperture Radar to one of the aircraft (model not specified, use Generic SLAR DataSensor #326?)

A number of new-build Challenger 605 and Global Express surveillance and maritime options being offered by a number of consortia (including Boeing and IAI) in the last year. Would be nice to add alongside the Gulfstream and Sentinel R1 database options.

The Chinese Coast Guard (CCG) has a very wide array of ships... most of which have functionally exactly the same capabilities. A lot of these showed up on the ONI ID PDF, which, to my knowledge is the only comprehensive list of their classes. Most of them are functionally, from our perspective, identical, however.

Information on these ships is pretty much impossible to find (in English, at lest), since hardly anyone cares about them in the first place.

The Hämeenmaa is the current flagship of the Finnish navy, and would be a useful addition to the mine warfare model in Command.

Additionally, to the last request, of special note is the Wolei class minelayer. Now operated by the Chinese MSA, this (the 918 is the only ship of her class) is the PRC's only operational dedicated minelayer.
