    Mission Planning and Execution in the A-10C

    Here's a video of a mission debrief between Eddie and myself, with ZeroMass attending. This was the first combat sortie I planned. Lots of problems encountered throughout the mission, though it was a tremendous learning experience.

    This video (which will be converted to a Youtube link when I have time) was captured during our debrief, where Eddie discusses his mission planning approach, as well as his general philosophy of operating the A-10C. I suspect you'll find it very enlightening.

    I think that was an excellent explanation on how things can be run.
    Definitely take the time to watch this guys.

    Listening to your Debrief was very informative, My background is all dismounted so it was very interesting when you were discussing degraded navigation situations. It also led me to thinking about how dismounted troops navigate and contingencies we use.

    Will a flight of A-10s use en-route rally points while navigating at low levels, in case a situation should arise where they need to re-group and they are to far from a CP?

    And hopefully we'll see the "offset IP's" disappear now
    Always makes me wonder how people make waypoint 11 an offset of waypoint 12, while waypoint 12 is not existing yet...

But how many days im clueless on. Im no twitch guru only time i view it is if the group does something on there or new egg. lol
