  1. FYI...if anyone is interested in converting any of my old Harpoon scenarios to Command, please feel free to do so. Just mention me as the original author. Thanks!
  2. Just on the off chance people didn't know about this, there is a facebook group for Command... https://www.facebook.com/groups/400225503448206/ It usually has a couple of new posts every day or so, people sharing news and/or humorous links, asking and answering questions, posting pictures of aircraft and ships, etc. Please join if you are interested!
  3. There is a new update to the scenario pack. There are now 235 available scenarios for Command. http://www.warfaresims.com/?page_id=1876 Many of these were written for the newest release of Command, v. 1.06, so be sure to update the game if you have not done so already. http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3762756 Enjoy!
  4. It is possible for India to win, but, yes, I agree, the South Africans have a definite advantage in that they command the skies in that scenario.

    India and South Africa get into a little squabble...
  7. Just a thought... Command is very similar to Harpoon and it has the same level of quality--excellent information, realism, gameplay, etc. I think it is going to be a very important part of the naval simulation world for some time to come. Maybe it would make sense to "adopt" Command and make Harpgamer a clearinghouse for information about it, too, including forums for discussing it, and a repository for files, scenarios, etc. I'm not sure how hard it would be to add a new set of sub-forms forums for Command to the site, but this seems to me like a natural direction for Harpgamer to take. Any thoughts on this? Mark
  8. Sorry to hear you had trouble with it. H3 can be a bit finicky. It varies from computer to computer--HUD-4 is one of the few databases that did NOT cause Harpoon to lock up on me on my machine. Go figure. Sometimes you have to tweak the settings, things like the size of the window, etc. I wish I had more of an answer for. you. Good luck.
  9. Pilatus PC-7 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilatus_PC-7 "The Pilatus PC-7 Turbo Trainer is a low-wing tandem-seat training aircraft, manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. The aircraft is capable of all basic training functions including aerobatics, instrument, tactical and night flying. It has been selected by more than 20 air forces as their ab initio trainer. Since the aircraft's introduction in 1978, close to 500 have been sold, with the majority still in service. Over one million hours have been flown by PC-7s worldwide." Although primarily a trainer, this aircraft is used for light attack/COIN missions by some air forces. ANW HUD-4 v1.2
  10. A related request... According to... http://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=93 ...and... http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/row/gazelle.htm The Gazelle can fire several other weapons in addition to the ones listed. Extra loadouts could be added... Extra loadouts might include: * 6 x MBDA HOT * 4 x MBDA HOT + 2 x Mistral * 4 x AT-3 Sagger + 2 x 9M32M SA-7 * 4 x AT-3 Sagger + 2 x UB-32-57 Rocket Pod (I'm not sure the AT-3 is in the database, so I guess it will have to be added, although it looks like the information from the AT-2 or AT-6 can be used to model it.) Or would it make more sense to just add the variant Gazelle models with the different loadouts?
  11. Okay, I was not sure if the different versions needed separate entries or not--sometimes the only thing that changes is stuff like which company is building the landing gear and it has no effect on gameplay so it doesn't matter, but sometimes it's a different engine and it gets better range, or they change what radar is used, or something like that. Thanks, Gunny.
  12. I believe you, but I can't find it. There is a Vosper 103 ft. class, but that's just a 120-ton patrol boat. I'm talking about the one based on the MEKO-100 platform. Some information can be found here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEKO ...and here... http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/meko/ I understand Israel is going to build their own versions of the MEKO-100 to replace their aging Saar 5 corvettes. Here is a bit of information... http://www.defence.pk/forums/military-forum/29522-israel-abandons-lcs-plan-eyes-meko-100-design.html http://defense-update.com/features/2010/january/meko190110.html ...I imagine the Israel MEKO will need its own database entry; it's a bigger ship and it looks like it will carry more weapons.
  13. Found another one... PGM 1 Battle Mountain Flight II (SGR) is described as "Planned but canceled class of Polish corvettes." It should probably just use the same description as the other PGM 1 Battle Mountain platform. (Actually, since the Battle Mountains displace over 1,000 tons, I might change "Hypothetical patrol boat class" to "Hypothetical corvette class.")
  14. Hawker Siddeley HS 748 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_Siddeley_HS_748 "The Hawker Siddeley HS 748 is a medium-sized turboprop airliner originally designed by the British firm Avro in the late 1950s as a replacement for the now-aged DC-3s then in widespread service as feederliners. Avro concentrated on performance, notably for STOL operations, and found a dedicated market. 380 aircraft were built by Hawker Siddeley. A larger development, the BAe ATP, attempted to compete with the de Havilland Canada Dash 8 but saw a limited production run." --Wikipedia Another medium transport used by many different air forces and airlines.

  15. Harbin Y-12 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harbin_Y-12 "The Harbin Y-12 (Chinese: 运-12; pinyin: Yun-12) is a high wing twin-engine turboprop utility aircraft built by Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation (HAMC)." --Wikipedia I thought I had posted this one, but when I searched for it I could not find it. Not sure how many have been made, but they appear to be in use by over a dozen air forces around the world. ANW HUD-4 v1.2
  16. Beechcraft Queen Air http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechcraft_Queen_Air "The Beechcraft Queen Air is a twin-engined light aircraft produced by Beechcraft in several different versions from 1960 to 1978. Based upon the Twin Bonanza, with which it shared key components such as wings, engines, and tail surfaces, but featuring a larger fuselage, it served as the basis for the highly successful King Air series of turboprop aircraft. It is often used as a private aircraft, a utility, or a small commuter airliner. Production ran for 17 years" --Wikipedia Nearly 1,000 built, and it served/serves with more than a dozen air forces around the world. ANW HUD-4 v1.2
  17. Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embraer_EMB_120_Brasilia "The Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia is a twin-turboprop commuter airliner, produced by Embraer of Brazil." --Wikipedia Less common than the EMB 110, but a few hundred have been built and they are used by a number of air forces around the world. ANW HUD-4 v1.2
  18. JAS 39 Gripen E/NG and Sea Gripen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAS_39 "... JAS 39E: Production version from the Gripen NG program. 60 single-seater JAS 39Es are on order for Sweden, 22 Es are expected for Switzerland.[66][116] JAS 39F: The two-seat version of the E variant. As of 2013, none have been ordered. In 2013, it was rumored that SAAB reached a joint development agreement with Boeing to reposition the JAS 39F "Super" Gripen as a training aircraft,[215], but this was later denied.[216] Sea Gripen: A proposed carrier-based version based on the NG variant;[60][61] its development was underway in 2011 ..." --Wikipedia And perhaps the Flygsystem 2020 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flygsystem_2020) could be modeled by using the JAS 39E/NG and making it stealthy? ANW HUD-4 v1.2
  19. Beechcraft King Air (Model 90/100) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechcraft_King_Air "The Beechcraft King Air family is part of a line of twin-turboprop aircraft produced by the Beech Aircraft Corporation (now Beechcraft Division of Hawker Beechcraft). The King Air line comprises a number of models that have been divided into two families; the Model 90 and 100 series are known as King Airs, while the Model 200 and 300 series were originally marketed as Super King Airs, with "Super" being dropped by Beechcraft in 1996 (although it is still often used to differentiate the 200 and 300 series King Airs from their smaller stablemates)." --Wikipedia Apparently, various air forces use the King Air, as opposed to the Super King Air (Model 200/300/350). Are they different enough to need separate listings? Or do they ALL need separate listings? ANW HUD-4 v1.2
