Burning Skies & Situational Awareness Join Forces!

banner With the recent release of the Spitfire module and upcoming release of the European theater, WW2 in DCS is booming and expected to become a massive attraction with already lots of players and clans coming over from IL2 and other WW2 flight sim communities.

After the success of the Bf109 Dogfighting Competition, Burning Skies and Situational Awareness have decided to take their partnership to the next level through officially sanctioning Burning Skies DCS Server!

Thanks to the outstanding, persistent and automatic player stats implemented by eekz, each month, up to 16 players will be awarded with ranking points that will count towards SA’s Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground Rankings!

Unlike other SA events where slots are limited, Burning Skies is an open 24/7 public server, therefore will allow virtually any DCS player to get a shot at making own way through the Rankings.

Burning Skies team will implement a few updates to the server and player stats section to ensure full compliance with PvP prerequisites and official SA-sanctioning has been set to kick off on February 1st!

The competitive scene is gaining popularity in DCS and together with our partners, we will keep striving to foster healthy PvP and sportsmanship as well as celebrating finest competitors with recognition and rewards. A lot of great news and milestones are around the corner, so stay tuned!

Ineligible Runs

A ineligible run means someone who did not score any kill, loss or assist and exited the mission before reaching minimum flight time, which is one hour and half or without firing/engaging (passive flying).
Ineligible runs are not awarded ranking points:

    NONE

FOULS

NONE

Ranking points for MVP’s

Out of the 45 pilots that flew in RF5, 17 earned SA points. Click below to see the full list.

CLAIMING / REPORTING

Each participant must review the ACMI generated by the server, which is posted by the host after the competition and claim events that have not been reported or report any discrepancies with what actually happened; all claims must be posted within 48 hours after the publication of the of the official ACMI and must be supported by evidence either from the official ACMI itself or from own ACMI. Claims posted too late will not be considered, especially if the rankings have already been updated; each pilot must start own thread for own claims.

(1) Maneuver kill:
You have fired on someone and he crashed while attempting to evade your missiles or you are involved in a dogfight and your opponent crashes in the middle of it. You can claim it here whilst specifying who was involved, at what time in Tacview and a description of the situation.

(2) Assist / Kill share:
Two or more pilots can share the same kill if they were all involved in destroying the target. Involved means having fired on the same target before it got hit and missiles were close enough. Missile from the second pilot must impact the target within 10 seconds if the target was destroyed after the initial hit. There is no time limit if the target was still able to fly after the first hit.

(3)Reporting a clean run:
Sometimes a pilot fights and survive the whole match but without scoring points; in this case, the pilot may still be eligible to receive ranking points (depending on how many pilots scored higher); to claim a clean run, a pilot must submit own callsign, flight start time and end time and it will be looked into for confirmation and a chance to get ranking points (SA points).

(4) Reporting an oversight:
While we try to be as accurate as possible with the results, oversights can happen, so this is why we try to involve you the pilots. Anything odd or unclear, you can also post here whether it be your flight or someone else’s.

CLAIMING IS NOW CLOSED





Top Gun 2 – The Birth of an Ace

top gun r2_ae A few people would have expected Top Gun 2 to succeed given that the 1.5 Beta version of DCS only came out recently and the stability of the game was not something we could take for granted. However, it did and in a fantastic fashion.

The TAW gents were excellent at hosting the event, investing a considerable time into setting up the servers and testing extensively the mission itself alongside its designer Stuge, on top of acting as referees for the massive 79 matches over the course of 4 days. We are glad to have a professional team and a great asset like TAW led by OverG, DutchBaron and SkyCap as a full member of the SA family.
Top Gun 2 would not have been such a success without the contribution of the 104th clan by hosting a portion of the many fights that took place. Mr Riptide brilliantly refereed those matchs while providing excellent after-action reports.

Now, let’s focus on what happened in the Top Gun skies and frankly you could only start with the incredible performance of Stuge. Through displaying unparalleled BFM skills, Stuge has not only won the competition but also without loosing a single round! Stuge has also achieved the same result in both the 1v1 and the 2v2 tournaments! These facts speak for themselves; Stuge was simply in a class of his own and it’s only fair to see such a great champion emerge as the new DCS world number 1 fighter pilot.

Squadron Air-to-Air Championship 2015 – Promotional Video



SATAC stands for Squadron Air to Air Championship; this will be the second edition after 2013, which saw the triumph of the 51st PVO Regiment over NFI in a thrilling final match on a score of 2 rounds to 1.

This PvP competition runs on a double knock out format meaning that each squadron must loose twice to exit the tournament. This means that no matter how things go, each squadron will have the opportunity to fly at least two matches, obviously more in case of victory.

Therefore, SATAC offers a valuable opportunity for Squadrons to test their skills in a very strict PvP environment where only teamwork and cohesion decide who will advance to the next stage of the competition.

Each round is a fighter sweep sortie where each side will try to control a specific airspace while denying the enemy the same either by forcing all opponents out of the bubble or by actually destroying them.

Both 4v4 and 6v6 are allowed, teams can rotate their pilots after each round and all matches will be best of 3 rounds, i.e, the winner will be the first team to win two rounds.

Even though it is a squadron based event, we also want to welcome lone wolves who can sign up and form teams for the purpose of this tournament.

This event will count for the air-to-air rankings. The dates of this competition will be determined as soon as DCS gets back the Integrity Check feature.

We look forward to seeing many DCS squadrons as well as lone wolves stepping up to the plate to make the most out of what we hope will be a great competition filled with action packed fights and loads of fun and thrills.

OPFOR 15-1: S77th Squadron, A Force To Be Reckoned With

f-15_dcs_oxidemako While Joint Warrior events got us used to see 104th Phoenix and 51st PVO going head to head, this time, the two iconic squadrons have joined forces in this first OPFOR event of 2015 to fly as the aggressor team, i.e the opposing force or OPFOR. The mission was to stand in the way of a coalition of 27 pilots (Redfor) made of independent pilots as well as some others coming from virtual squadrons. Redfor’s task was to inflict as much damage as possible to OPFOR air and ground assets.
