    Smile Hammer reporting for duty...

    Hi,

    My name is Mladen "Hammer" Kmetic (nearly 59), born in Slovenia (former Yugoslavia) but I live since 1975 in The Netherlands. I am married to a Dutch girl, have two cats and a mortgage.

    At the moment that I bought my first computer back in 1978, it was a TRS-80 Model I, I was infected by flight simulation virus, in particular with Sublogic FS1. One could call that period the Stone Age of pc flight simulation.
    As the years passed by I have also tried several combat simulators such as Red Baron, Jane's F-15, Megafortress and many other "games". My involvement in combat sims ended in the period of Falcon 3.0. Alongside all those combat simulators the latest versions of MS Flight Simulator was always on my computer. I became a real flight simulator freak so I had to make a choice which way I should go ... the combat or civilian simulation. Since I am kind of "Make love not war" guy I decided for civil simulation which brought me enormous pleasure.

    In the beginning of 2011 I evaluated my virtual simulation activities and came to conclusion that there is still bit of a combat blood in me. Not that I like to fight that much, it is the complexity and diversity of combat simulations which attracts me. After spending some time searching and reading the articles regarding the present status of combat simulation I've decided to focus on recently released DCS A-10 simulator.

    What do I expect to find within the 476th vFighter Group? ... Well, I hope to meet again my old and new friends with whom I can share my experience, my combat sorrow, from whom I can learn and with whom I can have fun.
    What do I offer to the 476th vFighter Group? ... great portion of dedication, friendliness and respect to all members of the 476th vFighter Group. I will do my utmost to get familiar with the rules and the way of life within the 476th group and of course respect them.

    My first priority is to get familiar with the 476th vFighter Group SOP which is until further notice my "bible".

    That's about it ... for now . If this long introduction bothered you I sincerely apologies for that.

    I am convinced that my stay within the 476th vFighter Group will be challenging and enjoyable...

    See you...

    Mladen "Hammer" Kmetic
