Command Database Wish List

Post by Mgellis »

It occurs to me that it might be helpful to put various requests for new platforms, etc. in one thread. The Command databases are big enough that they'll keep most scenario builders busy and happy for quite a while, I think, but I'm sure there are a few things people would like to see added.

Just to get thing started, here are a few things I'd like to see added when it is possible to do so (I apologize in advance if they are already in there and I somehow missed them)...

Pacific-class patrol boat
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific-class_patrol_boat

Barracuda-class submarine (France)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Bar ... _submarine

F125-class frigate (German)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F125-class_frigate

Global Combat Ship/Type 26 Frigate (UK)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_26_frigate

Allende-class frigate (Mexico)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allende_class_frigate <-- this one should be easy, as I believe it is simply a Knox with some of the equipment removed.

Oaxaca-class patrol vessel (Mexico)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oaxaca_class_patrol_vessel

Durango-class patrol vessel (Mexico)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durango_cl ... rol_vessel

I'm requesting an additional DB entry for the German RF-4E Phantom. In the current DB, the plane only has unarmed recon loadouts, but from 1978 to 1982, the planes were modified for an additional air to ground role. They would carry BL.755 as well as the other GP bombs used by the Luftwaffe in that timeframe.

Thanks, I'll see what I can dig up! May be in German, though.

Paul,

Just want to say thanks for all your work on the CWDB...it looks great! :) I will definitely be putting it to use in the future. Thanks again.

As I understand it, you cannot mix and match platforms from different databases in the same scenario. Or can you?

Assuming that you cannot, I would like to see the Cessna O-2 Skymaster (which is in the CWDB) added to the modern database, too--it looks like it is STILL in use in a few countries. Some information can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O-2_Skymaster

When it is possible to do so, please do the same with the OV-1 Mohawk, which I believe is in the CWDB already, but not the DB3000, although it served with US forces as late as the Gulf War.

(A number of my requests will be along these lines, getting older platforms already in the CWDB into the DB3000, if it is appropriate to do so (i.e., if they are really active during those years)...I'm interested in writing scenarios about conflicts between smaller nations, which often have an interesting collection of older aircraft and ships in their inventory, or between such nations and a small task force from a more powerful nation like the UK or France...)

Thanks!

Jorge mentioned the...

Tucano
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embraer_EMB_312_Tucano

and Super Tucano
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Tucano

...I think they are actually in the DB3000, but are listed as the AT-27 and the A-29.

I hope this helps.

And a few more suggestions...

Shardul-class tank landing ship (India)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shardul_class_landing_ship <-- an updated version of the Magar (which is in the DB3000), but I guess it is different enough to need its own entry

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makassar_c ... tform_dock

520MK Black Tiger
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_ ... 0_Defender <-- South Korean version of the MD500 armed with Tow missiles, etc. (some were just transports, but some were armed...should there be two entries?)

Thanks for your feedback guys! [8D]

Please give me a few to catch up [:)]

Would be great if you could highlight the ones that are needed for a scenario you're working on and need to be added asap zulu pronto pronto. The rest will be put into the queue (with medium/low priority) and added as time permits [:D]

Thanks!

I dug out some Info available on different sites (some in German):

http://web.archive.org/web/200804181401 ... /rf4e.html
http://www.flugrevue.de/luftfahrt-milit ... tom/524432
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_ ... _operators
http://www.modellboard.net/index.php?ac ... pic=2047.0
http://forum.keypublishing.com/attachme ... 1228906732

The German RF-4E was modified from 1978 to 1982 to carry cluster and GP bombs to perform a secondary A2G role. Weapons could be carried on up to three triple ejector racks, as can be seen on the last link above. Sidewinders were NOT carried, as a former munitions oficer of the Aufklärungsgeschwader 51 confirmed in the discussion thread linked above. The weapons carried were BL.755 and GP bombs made by Matra, similar to the US Mk80 series. I don't know if these are modeled in CMANO, if not, it would seem best to just use the same GP bombs the German F-4F can carry in the same period.

Please assume any I have posted up until now are "medium" priority--I plan to use them someday, but there's no rush. (I'm assuming "high" is "Please! I need it for a scenario I'm writing!" and "low" is "Don't know if I'll ever use this, but someone might, so it's worth putting in.") I'll give any future requests a rating. Thanks!
