Playing through the Dawn Strike scenario with CWDB v478 (game build 1147.14).

The AN/APS-20A radar (AEW) on the #3155 - AD-3W Skyraider (United States - 1951) has a search arc limited to forward. What secondary documentation I've found said the AN/APS-20A was a rotating antenna (hence the "guppy" radome under the fuselage. Compare to the AN/APS-20A on #3823 - TBM-3W Avenger (United States - 1946) found in the same scenario.

I think the appropriate change is to give the AN/APS-20A 360-degree coverage on #3155 AD-3W, unless there's a source I've been unable to find that says it was limited on that model


While we're at it, the same issue with AN/APS-20 series radars can also be found with another Skyraider - #132 Douglas AD-4W Skyraider - and several P2V Neptune aircraft - #588 (P2V-6), #2011, #2013 and #2017 (P2V-5) and #2895 (P2V-7). Thank you for bringing that up!

I believe the PW-1 AEW Flying Fortress also suffers the same coverage error.

That was corrected in a previous CWDB version, if I recall correctly.

I may have missed it then. Probably didn't update the last scenario it was in that I played.

Suggestion for an update to the CW DB's Mk37 and M48 torpedo series:

Mk37

Mk37 Mod 1 and Mod 3 - Both were "single wire" (receive only) weapons, but in the CW DB v478 they are listed incorrectly as "dual wire" two-way guidance. Also, US subs of the 1960's era are listed in the database incorrectly with two-way comms. Should be changed to one way (send only). As far as research indicates, two-way torpedo wire guidance was first introduced in the late 1970's with the Mk48 Mod 3....all one-way send only prior.


Mk48

Mk48 Mod 1 - Listed in the current CW DB as "dual wire". The Mod 1 was single wire (send only) weapon per many book and internet resources. Dual wire (send and receive) was introduced in the Mod 3 (service date in the late 70s, @1977 per sources)

Mk48 Mod 4 - Research seems clear the purpose of the Mod 4 program was to increase the speed to counter ever-increasing target speeds. Other than speed, I think the Mod 4 and Mod 3 were virtually identical. The Mod 3's upgrade focus added the "dual wire" capability, but was virtually otherwise identical to the Mod 1. Haven't been able to narrow down a Mod 1 or 3 speed, but whatever the speed is the Mod 4 should likely be greater. In the current CW DB v478 and DB3000 v488 the Mod 3 and Mod 4 speeds are identical.

This one's a bit nit-pickey, but US subs in 1960's/1970's era are all listed with a "Generic Acoustic Intercept" with "Late 70's" technology. Have had zero luck with book and internet resources researching the historic path of ACI technology. In fact I can't find much at all prior the LA Class' WLR-9 in 1978. I assume there were predecessors to the WLR-9 series ACIs, but I haven't been able to find them. Can a generic ACI, listing technology earlier the the late-70s, be added to the DB to coincide with earlier platforms' dates of service? I would assume earlier generics would be less capable (sensitive) than the WLR-9?

If this isn't a bug then the UH-2 Seasprite is my new air-superiority fighter of choice ;)
Link
Aircraft #4017 is to blame.

Additionally the loadout for the F-8J that is listed as "ZUNI 127mm HVAR, Mk83 LDGP" peculiarly arms the aircraft with 4x AIM-9B.
Link
Aircraft #1604 is the culprit.

I could not find any other thread regarding the CWDB so if this is wrong then sorry.

Hello, some additions to the Finnish Navy Cold War Database:

The mine layer/mine sweeper Keihässalmi was launched in 1957 and served until 1994. It served as the navy flagship and also as a training ship later in the career.
She had a displacement of 360 t, length of 56 m, a beam of 7,7 m and a draught of 2,2 m.
The propulsion was two Wärtsilä diesels of 800 hp each, which gave a speed of 15 knots.

The equipment was originally quite spartan, with navigational radar and only optic gun fire control + a search light but was later updated with gun fire control radar.

Original equipment
-Decca 707 #3760
-Generic Optical Sight -- Anti-Air & Surface #1020
-Generic Searchlight #251
-Generic Mechanical Cable Cutter Mine Sweep #4657

-2 x Depth Charge Throwers [12 DC] #1109

Equipment 1957-1975
-Decca 707 #3760
-Drum Tilt [MR-104 Rys] -- 25mm & 30mm GFCR #1545
-Bell Tap RWR #1434
-Generic Mechanical Cable Cutter Mine Sweep #4657
-Generic Magnetic Mine Sweep

Mounts and weapons (1975-1994)
-2 x AK-230 30mm/65 Twin #234
-2 x 20mm/60 #1027
-12.7mm/50 MG -- Facility/Ship, No Anti-Air Capability #561
-2 x Depth Charge Rack [12 DC] #200
-2 x Depth Charge Throwers [12 DC] #1109

-2 x 102mm/45 Mk16 Twin -- RN, 4-inch #1017
-2 x 40mm/60 Twin Bofors #205
-2 x 40mm/70 m/48 Single Bofors #1792
-2 x 20mm/60 #1027
-1 x Mk15 Hedgehog Trainable ASW Mortar #1988
-2 x Depth Charge Rack [12 DC] #200
-4 x Depth Charge Throwers [12 DC] #1109

Equipment
-Type 276 Radar
-Type 285 GFCR
-Type 293Q Radar #2574

In 1964 Finland also purchase two modified Soviet Riga-class Frigates (#550), Filin (renamed Uusimaa) and SKR-69 (renamed Hämeenmaa).
They were operated together as the Hämeenmaa-class until 1979 when the Hämeenmaa was rebuilt as a mine layer and the Uusimaa scrapped for parts.

They were quite similar to the Soviet ships, but there were some small differences:

Mounts/Stores/Weapons
-3 x 100 mm/56 single #477
-2 x 40mm/70 m/48 Single Bofors #1792
-1 x AK-230 30mm/65 Twin #234
-1 x 533mm Triple TT #2212
-2 x Mk15 Hedgehog Trainable ASW Mortar #1988
-2 x Depth Charge Rack [12 DC] #200
-2 x Depth Charge Throwers [12 DC] #1109

Equipment:
-Buck Toe [GAS-572 Pegas 2] #1364
-Slim Net [Fut-N] #1566
-Hawk Screech [Yakor] -- GFCR, 45mm, 57mm, 76mm, 100mm #1540
-Drum Tilt [MR-104 Rys] -- 25mm & 30mm GFCR #1545
-Decca 707 #3760
-Watch Dog B [Bizan] -- Jug Pair, adds omni #1100

In 1980 Uusimaa was scrapped and Hämeenmaa rebuilt as a mine layer, where some of the equipment were removed, exchanged or updated.
The Hedgehog racks and and torpedo tubes were removed and mine rails for 200 mixed naval mines added.

Is it possible to get #841-P6092 Zobel [Type 142A] (Germany FRG 1967) into the latest CWDB database?

This unit was already existing in database CWDB_443 but I am missing it in the latest database; so playing/update of the old scenarios does not work.

I'm really enjoying the game, but reading iconic stories of some aircraft I stumbled upon the Mirage IV, never realizing - due to the "mirage look" - its size and role as a strategic bomber.
Months ago I made a scenario depicting the Black Buck missions and thought about doing the same with this plane.
Please don't take my request as a criticism, but I read in a source that for long range missions the basic formation included a pair, a bomber and a tanker, but in the game there is no buddy refueling kit, like in A4 for example, could you include?
This is a artistic impression made by me:

Thanks

Proposed hypothetical United States naval unit. This appears conceptually in the 1970/71 edition of Jane's Fighting Ships. The idea died with the signing of the 1972 ABM Treaty.

SABIS = Sea-based Anti Ballistic Missile Intercept System

~ 20,000 ton cruiser-based hull.

Nuclear propelled ~30 knot speed

Sensors:

4 x navalized AN/FPQ-16 PARCS each covering quadrant-plus arcs.

Typical late 1960's early 1970's navigation, air search and surface search radars (LN-66, AN/SPS-10 etc).

Typical large-combatant comms suite for the time

Weapons:

4 x Sea Sparrow 8-pack box launchers for point defence with reloads located in the quarters; port and starboard, forward and aft.

60 x LIM-49 navalized Spartan missiles in vertical launch tubes with 360* firing arcs.

Facilities for 1-2 helos

Flags
Nuclear shock resistant

The image below is functionally identical to the image in Jane's 1970/71 edition. Thanks.

-C

F11-1F Super Tiger: Hypothetical Aircraft.

Primary source: F11-1F Super Tiger by Corky Meyer.

-Proposed upgrade of the F-11 with a J79 engine, with multiple versions, including multirole exports.

Super Tiger Design 98J-1
-Primary change from the vanilla Tiger (Aircraft #671) is in its engine, which should improve acceleration and go to the max-in-practice Mach 1.6 (the current Tiger only goes up to 1.53).
-Only listed armament 4 Sidewinders.

Super Tiger Design 98J-2
-All weather carrier fighter.
-Can be equipped with 2 Sidewinders, 2 Sparrows (along with the appropriate radar), and 2 150 gallon drop tanks.
-Alternatively, could theoretically carry 4 Sidewinders.

Super Tiger Design 98J-5 Export
-Export version, presumably without carrier capability.
-Multirole capability, as shown in the picture.
-Was tested with Bullpup missiles in addition to the bombs shown.
-Radar an "APQ-50 type".

Super Tiger Design 98J-7 Two Seater
-Two seat all weather carrier fighter.
-As with the others (APQ-50 radar, J79 engine), but with a maximum capacity of four Sparrows and four Sidewinders at once.

All versions should be flagged as hypothetical.
