- Both sides have SAM sites covering their airbases.

Gameplay Hints:
- If you crash on an airbase without exploding, DO NOT EJECT! Please quit the mission completely
and rejoin from the menu, or you will leave debris on the tarmac and endanger other players.
- If the RWR volume annoys you, you can adjust it with Alt-,(Comma) and Alt-.(Period).
- Aircraft System Failures: If you lose a more or less important system of your aircraft in flight, it must not neccessarily be due to weapon damage. All systems might fail at a fairly realistic probability rate.
- Bullseye for both sides is Waypoint 1. Coordinates: N45°03`01`` E34°54`36``


End of briefing

Teamspeak2 info:
For enhanced gameplay, use voicecomms to coordinate your flying with other teammates!
vJaBoG32 Public TS Server:
Password: euffi200

vJaBoG32 ATC Client info:
For AWACS/GCI simulation, use our ATC tool by JaBoG32_Zillion!
Connection info:
Radar Server IP:
Login: "your name"
Password: atcclient

In the menu, chose your side (red or blue) and select ALL available radar units and airport radars by clicking on them with Ctrl-Key held down.
Attention: You can not log in to the ATC client while flying on the LockOn server at the same time. This is to prevent cheating by pilots that use multiple computers. The ATC server will kick you when you try to fly and to use the ATC client simultaneously.
So it is either flying OR controlling! Teamspeak is the only way of communication between controllers and allied pilots.

Have fun!
