Title: Korean Campaign
Post by: _AH_fraggmann on March 12, 2019, 03:14:26 AM
The up coming Korean War Campaign uses aircraft that you will need to install.
Here is part of the read me...What this is: Korean War Aircraft Pack for HSFX7 v2.0

This is a mod pack for HSFX7 that incorporates a number of historic aircraft
that participated in Korean War which are otherwise missing in HSFX7.
This mod pack is compatible with both HSFX7 and Expert Mode.


Mod Pack contains:

Skyraiders: AD-4, A-1H, A-1J
Corsairs: F4U-4, F4U-4B, F4U-5, F4U-5N, AU-1
Meteors: Mk.III, F.4, F.8
Ivaders: A-26B, A-26K
Lavochkins: La-9, La-9M, La-11
*Mod Pack also includes a graphics bug fix for the F9F2 Panther found in HSFX7*

Here is the link to the D/L
                                         http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&c=153

You will also need to create skin folders if you wish.
Just follow the install instructions .. very simple       (wavey)

Hey Fragg,

The F-51D has a skin folder however the F-80C did not as part of the download. Could you post the skin folder/s for the Korean aircraft that were part of the download. That way us skinners can start the skin process.  :)  Thanks much !!!

If you look in what ever text Doc the author supplied you will find the proper names for the files.
The F-80C and the F-80A as well as the F-80N should all have skin folders, if not these are the file names.
The rest are:
AD-4   A-1H   A-1J 
A-26B   A-26K
MeteorF3  MeteorF4   MeteorF8
La-9   La-9M   La-11
F4U-4   F4U-4B   F4U-5  F4U-5N   AU-1

Hope this helps   S~ fragg

Post by: AH_DealnDave on April 20, 2019, 02:00:06 AM
Thanks Fragg, much appreciated. I think that the F-80 types have a "lower case" letter following:

F-80a
F-80c
F-80n

I'm assuming that the "N" version is lower case as the skin folders for the F-80a and F-80c had lower case following the prime aircraft designation.

Mission #2  May 8th 2019


July 06 1950

 The Battle of Pyongtaek was the second engagement
 between United States and North Korean forces during the Korean War,
 occurring on July 6, 1950 in the village of Pyongtaek in western South Korea.
 The fight ended in a North Korean victory following unsuccessful attempts
 by American forces to inflict significant damage or delays on advancing North Korean units,
 despite several opportunities to do so.

  Load up with your choice of ordinance and stop the enemy located just north of Osan.

  Good Luck   AH fraggmann

Hey Fragg, Just checked your .txt file for the mission #1 results, you show me as a KIA. I landed safely at our home base with one kill … I was shot in the cockpit watching the others attempting to land at our base. I thought the rule was that if you landed at home base and stayed in the cockpit watching others and were killed by a strafing enemy aircraft it still counted as a survival … has that changed?

OK so I downloaded the KWAC folder and extracted it. I opened it to the folder labeled Korean War Aircraft Pack v2.0 and put that folder into the jsgmemods folder. And activated it, I believe this is correct.

Last night I could not see why I couldn't see the right folder, because I unzipped it to many times or opened it to many times. I had Karen's Grand kids interrupting at the same time and I don't want to ignore them so I had to leave last night sorry gents life happened. I am actually starting to like having these kids around every once in awhile. The oldest Cydney she is 11 and playing softball. Its pretty cool so life has changed for me and its taking a bit to get used too. Some major changes and all to the good. ~S~

     Naktong Bulge

     Aug.19.1950
             
During the two Korean War battles of the Naktong Bulge,
Marine Corsairs put on a virtuoso performance in support of Leathernecks fighting on the ground.
In the late summer of 1950, North Korean troops twice broke through the Pusan Perimeter along the same
 bend of the Naktong River. In both instances they gained access to a road network that positioned
 them to thrust deep into the southeastern corner of the Korean peninsula and capture the all-important
 port of Pusan. And in each case the U.S. Army called on the Marines to save South Korea.
 Good Luck           AH fraggmann

At the end, let me know who lived and who died.

I can do stats off of that.. especially since we are not monitoring much more than that..

Mission #5
 
Operation Ripper

March 6th 1951

 24xF4U-4B


March 6th 1951 Operation Ripper, also known as the Fourth Battle of Seoul
 was a United Nations military operation conceived by the commander US Eighth Army,
General Matthew Ridgway, during the Korean War.

 The operation was intended to destroy as much as possible of the Chinese communist People's
 Volunteer Army (PVA) and Korean People's Army (KPA) forces around Seoul and the towns of Hongch'on,
50 miles (80 km) east of Seoul, and Chuncheon, 15 miles (24 km) further south.
 The operation also aimed to bring UN troops to the 38th parallel.
 It followed upon the heels of Operation Killer, an eight-day UN offensive that concluded
 February 28, to push PVA/KPA forces north of the Han River. The operation was launched on
 March 6, 1951 with the US I Corps and IX Corps on the west near Seoul and Hoengsong and
 US X Corps and ROK III Corps in the east, to reach "Line Idaho", an arc with its apex
just south of the 38th Parallel in South Korea.


The Chinese are moving south towards Seoul.
Our ground troops and armor are on the way to establish a line.
Load up with your choice of ordinance and stop them before they arrive at our line.

Missiom #6 Black Thursday
 

 April.12th.1951

USAF pilots nicknamed April 12, 1951 "Black Thursday",
 after 30 MiG-15s attacked three squadrons of B-29 bombers (36 planes) escorted by approximately
 100 F-80s and F-84s. The MiGs were fast enough to engage the B-29s and extend away from their escorts.
 Three B-29s were shot down and seven more were damaged, with no casualties on the communist side.

   Mission #7 MiG Alley (RAAF)

            Aug/29th 1951


 Meteor and MiG-15s pilots engaged each other for the first time on 25 August,
without either side scoring hits.
Four days later,24 Meteors fought 12 MiGs; one Australian ejected after his aircraft was shot down,
and a second Meteor was damaged. The following week, a Meteor suffered severe damage in a dogfight
 with MiGs. As a result of these losses, senior RAAF commanders decided to focus
 on escort and air defense sorties.

You will take off from a carrier located  in grid AO-38 KP-4 NNW and fly
all the way up to MiG Alley looking for a fight.

The Battle of Bloody Ridge was an engagement of the Korean War fought between
 August 18th and September 5th of 1951.
Bloody Ridge was part of a system of outposts constructed on top of the Taebaek Mountain range,
north of the 38th Parallel border that divided both Koreas,
and gave the Chinese forces occupying them an excellent observation post from where to call artillery
 strikes against United Nations' (UN) positions. The UN attack at bloody ridge was part of a series of
 operations intended to secure their defenses by depriving the Chinese from observations points overlooking
 the UN's main line of resistance.  A-26s Look for convoys.  AD-4s and F4Us clear the hills.

  You're very welcome to fly with us tonight and anytime. 

   Fair warning: It's been our experience that it's not unusual to go through a  restart ( or two) as the aircraft in this campaign are somewhat unfamiliar, so a little patience is helpful in that regard.

 Looking forward to seeing you there.  :drinking-42:    Scheduled start time is 9:00 PM EDT   Might be a warm up/ flight check to confirm the mission loads/runs properly for everyone shortly before  launch.

I was tinkering with the A-26B that 1st will fly, it has a few interesting loadouts.

There is one that has 6x500lbs+4x500lbs External, so you'd get five drops of two 500 pounders.

There is also 6x500lbs+10xHVARs so you'd get three bombs drops plus five rocket shots.

Or if you want to go with fewer bomb drops but more boom there is 4x1000lbs+10xHVARs.

There are versions of the first two loadouts that add 2x175 Napalm as well, though I'm not sure if we wanna use that. This A-26B has eight nose guns but also three in each wing, so it has fourteen .50s worth of forward firing stroffage.

These loadouts seem pretty heavy for takeoff though, we'll need to mind how much runway we have ahead of us. Maybe be prepared to turn off onto the taxiway so we can position for a full takeoff run.

PS - "Stroffage" should now be added to the Aces High Dictionary.

 KC-10 Heart Break Ridge    July/09/19

 Sept/13-Oct/15/1951

 
 Sept/13th 1951

The Battle of Heartbreak Ridge was a month-long campaign in the Korean War,
lasting from the 13th of September until the 15th of October, 1951.
 The site of the battle was a seven-mile-long (11-kilometer) stretch of land over three sharp peaks,
 separated by steep valleys. The area is slightly north of today's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) at the 38th Parallel
 that separated the two countries on the Korean Peninsula. United Nations (UN) troops had driven back
 the North Koreans and Chinese from Bloody Ridge a mile to the south, and the Communists had entrenched
 themselves at Heartbreak Ridge to slow their advance. The entire offensive in the area had been initiated
 by the United Nations, in an effort to disenfranchise the Communists of this important staging area
 for their attacks on South Korea.

If we're going up against those bloody migs again next week we're gonna have to rethink our approach.

First we're gonna want full internal fuel, once we drop our tanks those sabres suck fuel pretty fast. Between combat and the long flight back we'll need it.

Second the extraordinary speed advantage they seem to have makes them very hard to deal with up high. We may need to sucker them down low to give some guys a chance to dive on them from considerable height. We can also use the ground defensively as they seem pretty timid down low and will sometimes execute a loop into the ground. Getting them to turn down low then extending might give us some head-on opportunities as well.

Maybe a gamey solution but I'm not sure how else we counter these guys.

     The immediate American objective was Triangle Hill ,
  a forested ridge of high ground 2 kilometers (1.2 mi)
  north of Gimhwa-eup near the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
  The hill was occupied by the veterans of the People's Volunteer Army's 15th Corps.
  Over the course of nearly a month, substantial American and South Korean forces
  made repeated attempts to capture Triangle Hill and the adjacent Sniper Ridge.
  Despite clear superiority in artillery and aircraft, escalating American and South Korean
  casualties resulted in the attack being halted after 42 days of fighting,
  with Chinese forces regaining their original positions.

  In early April, 1951, a new method was worked out where the 5th Air Force worked with
           the Navy in bombardment of enemy positions up and down the east coast of Korea
.          The LSMR Division fired 12,924 5-inch rockets at Wonsan from June through Sept. 1951.
           Their first and biggest day in Wonsan was the night of May 20 and 21 when "Operation Fireball"
           was completed. Two LSMR\u2019s fired a total of 4,903 rockets at Wonsan targets in a 35-minute period.
           The 5th Air Force dropped flares and attacked various targets. Navy F9Fs attacked Wonsan airfield
           while the ships off shore shelled the coast-line targets with star shells and 5-inch rockets.

 I had the same issue with padlocking ground targets.

Don't think the colors were changed since the padlock is designated "Enemy Ground" and they were locking on.  I thought maybe markers were hidden by the trees or some other graphic, but that's just a guess, too.

The  ground padlock we use  is a  narrow solid colored triangle above the ground target when we coop  online. It's think it's labeled something like Enemy External Ground Padlock.  It's a little different than the in cockpit air padlock triangle that surrounds a padlocked plane.

It was wierd cause my view would lock onto stuff, just not give me the little marker. We've had it online before. I wonder if it is dependant on the type of object. May have to test that.

I regret to inform everyone that Mission #12 Triangle Hill
must be done again. :surprised-041: My game was not recording tracks as
it should have been and no one else has recorded the last mission. :sad-056:
I have re-installed my game from a thumb drive I keep in
reserve and it seems to record properly. :cool:  I will post the scores
after I get the results from mission #12. I will post the totals from
Missions #1 through mission#12 by the end of next week.

The next 2 groups of missions are 13 missions each,
13 allied and the last 13 are communist. These 26
missions were created before the Korean A/C mod,
so Im thinking if we all turned the Mod off maybe
 some of the problems might go away. It's worth a try.
The last 13 mission maps (commies) are the same as the previous
13 mission maps (allies) flying MiG-15s for the last 13 missions.

I'm open to comments, good, bad or indifferent.

So we don't actually need the korean war aircraft pack after mission 12?

I was wondering a few weeks ago what our position was on this mod, wether we were using it just for this campaign or had adopted it as a permanent part of our game moving forward.

The aircraft in the next 26 missions we had before the mod. The only time you need the Mod activated is for the
Sky raider versions, a few F4U versions, the Meteor versions, and the A-26 versions and two Russian planes I believe.
 It won't hurt to leave the mod  activated, but you can turn it off if you wish.

I unfortunately am having a small issue. My track IR will not look down fully in this CAMP. It performs great in the Sun and Mon version we fly. I have done multiple things to try and get it to function properly. The settings/profile is the same, it will look down about quarter of the way, inside and outside is the same. Nothing I have done works. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same and if they have fixed it and what they did?

                                "Operation Death Valley"                          


                                   August 30th 1951


  "Death Valley" was a road between the mountains along the route between Wonsan and Pyongyanwhere there were many well-concealed revetments in which a truck could be hidden quickly.
Regarding locomotives and boxcars, the hundreds of tunnels were excellent hideouts,
and there was room inside of them for some 8,000 cars enough room to accommodate every train
and locomotive in North Korea. Flak traps were plentiful along this road. An open parachute hung on a tree,
dummy trains, trucks, tank; even troops were at key points to welcome attack.
Steel cables were stretched across the narrow valleys into which our planes would sometimes fly.
Each of the flak traps were ringed with well-placed and well-concealed guns.

                                     October 9th 1951

  During air missions behind the bomb line it was noted that UN had many supplies,troop billets, medical centers, ammo dumps above ground in the open.
 It was reasoned to believe the way the Chinese were fighting that they had to have
 their supplies in the open somewhere. Pictures were taken showing targets back of
 the artillery range of UN forces. A lot of supplies were exposed which would make
 excellent targets for a concentrated, surprise and pinpointed attack by planes.
 This was the origin of what came to be known as the "Cherokee strikes," named in
 Clarks honor because of his Cherokee ancestry. This system was used throughout the war.
 The first "Cherokee strikes" were flown on Oct. 9

    A Special night operation that commenced on May 13, 1952, had one feature which some of the earlier
 night missions had lacked. That was that the planes were re-shuffled so that they were over the target
 area by first light of the day. The Communists had noted the time pattern of the night aerial patrols
 and were withholding train and truck movements until the naval planes were homeward bound.
 "Insomnia" schedules stopped this.

The attack on the Sui-ho Dam was the collective name for a large series of air attacks by United Nations Command air forces on thirteen hydroelectric generating facilities that took place June 23 and June 24, 1952, during the Korean War. Primarily targeting the hydroelectric complex associated with the Sui-ho Dam in North Korea, the attacks were intended to apply political pressure at the stalled truce negotiations at Panmunjeom.
This is the fourth mission of  three targeted Dams.

 This was a flare-dropping mission carried out through most of the Korean War.
 Flares would be dropped and U.S.planes would attack by the light of the flares.
 This was a popular and effective method of killing enemy troops and destroying supplies.

                   "Operation Death Valley"
     "Death Valley" was a road between the mountains along the route between Wonsan and Pyongyang where there were many well-concealed revetments in which a truck could be hidden quickly. Regarding locomotives and boxcars, the hundreds of tunnels were excellent hideouts, and there was room inside of them for some 8,000 cars, enough room to accommodate every train and locomotive in North Korea. Flak traps were plentiful along this road. An open parachute hung on a tree, dummy trains, trucks, tank; even troops were at key points to welcome attack.
