Remember the time...
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:28:20 AM »
I wrote an entire Carrier Landing guide for the Su-33, just so I could draw a penis?

Yeah. 

I haven't changed much ;)

Not bad Archer, living in Okinawa Japan these days with the fam.

How's the GAR been?  I'm transitioning to the UC-12W and with my gunship pilot days about behind me I picked up the AV-8B sim and have been bopping around having a good time so I figured I'd reach out and say hello to you fellas.

These days -what with all the new modules- we fly any of them we fancy TBH. We're keeping the old Russian heritage of the squad alive, but as they aren't releasing current Ru themed stuff, it's hard to stick to just 'eastern' AC.

Whatever, it's all fun and explosions!

WHAT?  I was told the regiment was Russian and Russian only.  Remember how some of you guys made fun of me flying F-15s.
Since when did we make that change?  I have to call the other 159ers to fix this sacrilege.

Hopefully still not in loops and actually engaging.  LOL

So what is the new world order?  We fly for NATO?  (Hopefully not doing what Grim Reapers do)  What kind of AC, carrier-only?
I think I have to show up now that we are flying western AC.  Will pass this info to the other members who used to fly on the 159th.

With so many new western AC (that even we die-hard Ruski fans can’t resist), we’ve pretty much opened the door to everything.

So if that tickles your joystick enough to bring you back to the fold, we’ll see you on-deck 😎

Sure would be great to have some more people in the air with us!!

Hi POintman -as Fusion stated, we have to be realistic as we just aren't getting new recruits for the Ru aircraft these days -most are flying all the shiny-new stuff.

We'd love for new Ru modules but they're thin on the ground. Thus, we decided to keep the theme of being a Ru unit but with access and/or association with western AC and units.

Either that, or we're a grave-yard.*

*Some said we'd got to that many, many years ago...

Hello Archer,

Long time.  Yes, I would be happy to fly again.  Can someone update my signature with the GR2 award?  After all these years and my sig is still not updated.  LOL
Which reminds me, any GR1-3 awards on the new aircraft?  Trying to fly the AV-8.  Seems similar to the A-10 but for some things, like prepping weapons, the A-10 seems alot easier.

Hello P0intman,

I remember you asking for your sig to be updated approximately.... 5 years ago. Doesn’t time fly.

Currently we are looking for volunteers to do stuff like that as Comrade Jojo has put most of the ‘abled’ body old dufffers in the Jankers.

Can you remind me of location again, if you are in a NA time zone maybe we can have a fly aboot (bestest Canadian accent) together.

Ax
