    New/Old Pilot here!

    Hey guys, I'm fairly new to combat in DCS. I come from the land of the Vipers (F-16), have flown Falcon BMS ritually for the past couple of years, I'll leave out the groups I've been apart of because I'm not here to "promote them", I know basic and advanced air target/ground target tatics. I find myself always wanting to do new things and set out new goals to achieve however the A-10C is a big challenge for me, hence my reasoning for wanting to join a group! I can target and take out stationary and moving targets, BUT SAMS! I cannot seem to learn STE's for this jet. Hopefully I am able to move forward with this group. I look forward to hearing from you all!

    Welcome Scratch. I'm biased for sure but you've found the best place to learn about DCS A-10. Our downloads section has lots of information and we don't mind answering questions.

    Scratch (and others), you could -and you should IMO- start with downloading the public 476 documents and start practicing. E.g. formation flying and (N)AAR can easily be practiced by two or more serious pilots outside of the 476. Especially with the pace of the training being mainly dependent on your own progress rate, you want to be as prepared as possible.

    Oh, and welcome!

    A mission’s execution often reflects the quality, discipline, and tone set in the briefing.
