Great to see an air mission, cheers Mbot.
Having a problem, though. Nothing happens when I get to the combat area. No bad guys, no friendlies. I've flown around Brezeeenio [sp!], landed, gotten out, flown some more. It's empty. There's nobody on the radio, no channels to choose from.
Have also flown high, low, fast and slow around the red shaded area.
I do get a co-pilot message to initiate contact with the FAC, but nothing comes up when I hit the communication key.
I must be missing something basic

Ok, that's odd. It worked for a friend that tested the mission (and obviously also for me). Did you check the comms menu in the quick command menu or the one in the complex menu (should be this one).

Yes, tried it and it works fine as far as comms go. Once you get to the area of operations, romeo 4 contacts you and you have to reply to get the ball rolling and have the FAC give you the co-ords of the target. As MBot said, use the radio option in the menus along with comms and the reply option.
MBot, really liking this mission so far. I've managed to kill the first targets but when Romeo 4 comms on the air and tells me to go for the next target which is "100-200m South of the green smoke along the treeline" I can't see a thing, target wise?.
Flew criss-cross around the immediate area and looked South from the green smoke but I can't see any targets. Any hints?.
Well, you don't need to see anything Just run your fire along the treeline 100-200m south of the smoke and enjoy the show. The FAC will tell you when your fire is on target and when it is enough. Glad you like it so far.
This treeline?. It begins South of the smoke, or am I far too close?. Am I supposed to look for a treeline a lot further South from the green smoke?.
Yes that is the correct one. If you are having trouble judging the distances in the terrain it is a good idea to compare the terrain with the map. The map grids should give you a good idea how far 50m or 100m or Xm are. Of course you have to find the position of the smoke on your map, but working with the map is part of doing FAC-CAS
Nice little mission.
Was littlebit lost at the beginning co's me and my gunner couldn see any hostiles, but i got the hang of it after a while
Hope to see more helicopter missions soon, i like flying helos... atleast in 3rd person when i can see better , have to practise more in first person.
Thanks for the help.
Going by my judgement, 100-200m on that treeline starts from approx where the little grey shed is about halfway down. So I assume I am right in thinking I just fly down that treeline and loose off cannon rounds into it as I go in a straight line, then turn around and repeat?. How often do I need to do that as I have been up and down it a good few times now but had no messages from Romeo 4 to say I am on the right tracks.
