PN79 - Good point on the MiG-29UBs, thanks.
ZorozstroBR. I'll take your points in order:
Patriots - I'm going with as historical OOBs as I can find and the Danes in particular didn't have Patriots. It’s an interesting dilemma of the 1994 setting, a real transition of technology: Phantoms vs Flankers when they were designed for to fight Foxbat’s and Floggers, AMRAAMs are on line but you still have Sparrows, Aim-9 all aspect when you have stocks of rear aspect.
Gulfstreams - I can adjust the timing on that. How close were they to taking off? When I tested it they were OK but then I ****-canned some Sov deep strikes and reinforced the strikes on the first echelon of ABs.
I'll dig around for some low level SAMs. The Germans had some more but the Danes were pretty thin on the ground.
The scenario may well be too overpowered. We'll see how several more folks do. I did OK in testing but then adjusted a bunch of stuff so may have tipped it over the edge.
The SAR script is great. The basic script was created by angster and it is really good but I messed it up and TyphoonFr helped me sort it out and added in the messages, which made it fantastic. I don't think you should know how long you have, it’s an uncontrolled situation and you need to react or lose the crew. Any helicopter or boat arriving very close to the marker at below 150knts will do the job. Ideally there would be a correlation between SAR equipped helicopters and others, as well as crew size. A Sea King in the SAR role for instance could pick up the entire crew from three ASW MPA aircraft, but an Alouette III- not so much. At this point that is well beyond my ability with Lua, perhaps someone could figure it out, but I just don't have the knowledge, skill or inclination. Its representative and pretty cool at that.
For ship rescue, that is very possible I suppose. If you like that sort of thing, go to Northern Fury #3 Dagger to the Heart, and see how it was done in the 'old days' before Lua. Lots of ship rescue work in that one.
Glad you liked it.
I don't quite remember how much time there was left for the Gulfstreams to be ready to fly, but I lost them 2 to 3 minutes after I got the message that they needed to survive. And even at that point they weren't going to get out as there were 50 enemy planes over that AB lol...
