Radio Information

 

PRC-343:  The primary radio for squad level coordination in the 15th MEU is the PRC-343 PRR. This radio operates in the 2.4GHz range using frequency hopping and is extremely secure, but is not capable of cross-talk with VHF/UHF radios like the PRC-152 and 117. The maximum effective range of the PRC-343 is between 500m and 1km depending on terrain line-of-sight. The PRC-343 has 16 blocks of 16 unlabeled channels available.

 

PRC-152:  The primary radio for higher level coordination in the 15th MEU is the PRC-152, which shares the same Software Communications Architecture as the PRC-117, as well as a shared programming personality. The maximum effective range of the PRC-152 is between 5 and 15 km depending on terrain, obstructions, frequency, and atmospheric conditions. Information on the most useful channels programmed in the SCA template is available below. The full list is available here.

Chan Name Purpose
SCA 01 MCALL Hailing/Common
SCA 10 I CO India Company Main (GCE Primary)
SCA 50 ARMOR Armor Coordination
SCA 55 FO 55 Artillery Calls For Fire
SCA 80 TAD 80 Primary Air-to-Ground
SCA 92 CTAF 1 ATC Air Traffic Advisory
SCA 95 AIRSPC Primary Air-to-Air
SCA 99 GUARD UHF Emergency / SAR Channel

Liberation Revision 6.0 released to server:

 

Templates included:

Altis

Chernarus

Sahrani

Takistan

Tanoa

 

Changelog:

  • Loading image updated
  • Rule sign updated
  • Stringtable updated to R6.0.
  • Woodland preset recreated and updated.
  • Presets selected between DES and WDL per mission.
  • Fixed init_presets.sqf throwing errors for missing class references in OPFOR infantry.
  • Fixed popup message about no entry for widthRailWay caused by missing value in standard_controls.hpp
  • Tanks classnames corrected to MEU tanks.
  • S1 Recruiting Detachment sign added, buildable objects for S1RD and Rules signs added to build menu.
  • Helicopter start spawn locations and systems fixed to reduce exploding/disappearing helicopters on carrier/at start base.

 

R5.1 will be removed from the server on next restart. Future template changes should be made to R6.0 templates.

 

 

S1 RECRUITING DETACHMENT SIGN is a buildable item under the Buildings tab of the Build menu. This sign will lose its texture on mission restart/refresh or server restart. 15th members should take care that the old is recycled and a new sign placed at active FOBs for visibility. Thank you for participating in recruiting efforts with that small task.

 

A small 1m/0.5m server rules sign has also been added through the same utility. This can be spawned if needed for reference, and is also subject to the same loss of texture on mission refresh.

Posting on behalf of @1stLt De MunckMunck so it's not on a perishable chat board and I remember it:

 

"The Fuel Crate at the Op base on Kujari is a little too close to the other two crates which causes it to explode upon interaction. Could you guys please fix this @S4 Mission"

 

Will be corrected next release.

CHANGELOG

 

28APR20

 

With this version update we decided it was better to start with a fresh copy of Liberation and modify it once again to our needs.
I cannot give enough credit to @Cpl J. Lane for his work on this matter.

 

Added:

 

Spare Barrel
8 Point Woodland and Desert
M1045A2 (M220A2/Snorkel), M1123 (4D/Open/Snorkel), and M1078A1R SOV (M2)
MI-28 Havoc Helicopter
Mi-8MTV3 Cargo Helicopter

 

Removed:

 

ENVG-2 from the arsenal

 

Changed:

 

Version 7.1 to 8

Complete rewrite or improvement of various sections of base liberation code. Credit: Cpl J. Lane
3CB SU-25 and MiG-29 switched back to RHS Grey/Camo variants

 

Fixed:

 

Garbage collector running improperly
Blufor on Takistan now have desert camo for their vehicles
All planes will now spawn in the air instead of in trees or on roads

 

 

 

We have also changed the way the arsenal and arsenal boxes work. We are now using the default Liberation arsenal which means it will be a scroll wheel instead of an ace interact. This change was made because previously we were altering how a large section of the scripts and code were being originally intended to be used. This will keep down on errors and hopefully lead to better server performance.

Couched in, been a little while since I haunted any A3+LIB servers. The last time I experimented with the idea, I was running with an F-35B platform without many difficulties; it was functional, a bit buggy in spots, pylons not appearing and what not, but it was at least functional, that I could tell, in the ways that mattered.

 

Finding with the F/A-18E however, the targeting system is whacked. 1. cannot really tell where the sights are directed. 2. there are no IR sights, but maybe that is a server config thing. 3. the laser does not stay up; I set it and find my target, but when I cycle to the desired weapon, the laser was dropped, so I lose my targeting. 4. and in one instance, I found my pylons somehow lost their loadout entirely, in spite of the fact I set it up and verified in the service menu. Plus with the 35B, the stall speed is so low, it's amazingly easy to maneuver, even SVTOL carrier landing.

 

I get it, F-18 is popular, and with recent media exposure, of course. Similarly, F-35 not so much, with some of the more recent issues. But why not stick with an old reliable workhorse, at least as far as the server goes, the AV-8B Harrier II.

 

Anywho, that's my two cents, feedback FWIW. HTH.

 

Good luck, good hunting!

What do you mean by a "sight" ? Do you mean the camera or the reticle within the cockpit? The camera definitely has IR. 

 

Similarly, I've never had the issue you describe with the laser. The 18 does have a much narrower angle with which to spot the laser, maybe try to make sure you're approaching the target head on at a proper angle. This would be an especially big shift for individuals who only use the APKWS missiles which are overpowered and essentially able to turn on a dime. I recommend not using those and instead learning how to use bombs like the GBU-12 if that's the issue.

 

The pylon losing loadout thing is well documented. You just need to double check that the loadout is really loaded before takeoff, there isn't any fix I've found. 

 

FWIW, we swapped to the 18 because the "amazingly easy" maneuverability of the F35 is incredibly overpowered. The AV8 was likewise very overpowered, although admittedly less so as the AV8 is just slower and lacks the organic stealth stat of the 35.

 

The F-18 mod we use is more challenging sure if you only used the other aircraft as overpowered death machines, but it's more fun too if you know what you're doing.

Being the one who oversees the F/A-18F in the 15th and have flown regularly with the E variant on the public server I know of the issues you speak of and I will be able to give you some tips and tricks to work around them for a more enjoyable flight.

Though first I want to say that the F/A-18 mod wasn't choosen to replace the F35 because of its popularity or the media attention it gains around the world or the lack thereof in the F35s case. Popularity is subjective. As the good Major Caesar pointed out were that the Firewill F35 were incredibly overpowered in near everything it did with even a brand new arma pilot and it was insanely hard to be countered against during our official missions because of the stealth capabilities.
The F/A-18 was choosen because it provides a more balanced platform both for ACE and more importantly Zeus. For ACE it puts the skill required to operate back to the pilots and it gives more breathing room to zeus operators who have the tool to keep a 18 on its toes. As for the issues you are experiencing. It's mostly down to the E variant. Details below;

Targeting Whacked

  • While the F is worse the E to has issue displaying the triangle or square on the RWR because of its sensors are more directed the further the distance to the target. As you get closer to each other they appear more consistently.
    In short you have to use your speed to get in closer to the target and dodge anything they throw at you at the same time. I'd advice an about 60-70 degree angle toward them. Head on can lead to a mission to the face

Sights

  • The sights are off by default. You can turn them inside the cockpit on the very top left. There is two buttons called "A/A" and "A/G". If you mean that it has no IR sights with the A/A missiles then those will appear with the A/A and if you have those missiles selected.

 

Laser turns off

  • This is a E variant bug. I know what you mean and for what I know of it you cant fix it. When I fly the E varient in the public serverI don't use any laser guided munitions. I use 500 Ib Mk82 dumb bombs and AGM-65Gs
    If there is a F variant in the server then we can use the E2 with the WSO. But as for laser guided bombs I'd suggest avoiding those entirely as they are RHS. We dont have Firewill weapons on that server anymore and I've experienced RHS LGB constanting miss where my laser is pointing despite that the same bomb from AWS would had no problems. 

Pylons

  • I'd advice using ACE to load the pylons. The service menu build into the 18 mod is questionable at best

 

The F/A-18 mod is very fragile and it is not uncommon that it breaks in some way shape or form beyond what you have experienced. Being editing by Zeus for example can completely make the pylons freak out.
 If you can use the F over the E. It is far less buggy. I hope the above provided some light to your questions. You can find me in teamspeak if you want more information or guidances
