Default Re: Finnish OOB 9.0 corrections

My beef was mostly the BL755 CBU and then the rocket pods which were common in Mig 21 bis but which Finland didn't possess. And as I know it is all speculation and that "it has always been there" that is exactly why I asked if any input is wanted.
We keep telling people this is a GAME not a SIMULATION but it doesn't seem to matter that IMHO formed over a couple of decades of playing that people buy air assets ( when they even bother to........ ) they are looking for something that drops things that go bang and only very select few really care if the things that go bang are named correctly or may be a slightly different size than we attached of that nation whatever doesn't have 359 kg bombs it has 325 kg bombs.

OK your " beef" is mainly with the cluster bombs......fair enough I can replace them easily enough but why don't you give me a hint what would make you happy ..(1000lb JDAM ? )...the opportunity is now -------so I don't have to got through this again NEXT year and it saves me combing through translated Finn websites to find out something that you obviously already know

JSOW is also delivered and carried (pics) but not yet live fired.

JASSM has been ordered but not yet received: http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Sec...8811449245352/
Therefore JASSM not included in here, but will probably appear during this year or the beginning of 2017.

"Viikon aikana pudotettiin Boeingin valmistaman JDAM-pommin eri versioita GBU-38, GBU-32 ja GBU-31 (Guided Bomb Unit)."
"During the week FAF dropped different versions of Boeing JDAM bombs GBU-38, GBU-32 and GBU-31."

"JDAM-pommit ovat Ilmavoimien käytössä olevia GPS-ohjautuvia täsmäpommeja. Niiden taistelukärkenä toimii joko Mk84-sirpalepommi (GBU-31V1), Mk83-sirpalepommi (GBU-32), Mk82-sirpalepommi (GBU-38) tai BLU-109 -tunkeumapommi (GBU-31V3)."
"JDAM bombs are FAF used GPS guided precision munitions. Their warheads include either Mk84 fragmentation bomb (GBU-31V1), Mk83 fragmentation bomb (GBU-32), Mk82 fragmentation bomb (GBU-38) or BLU-109 penetration bomb (GBU-31V3)."

"Lapin lennoston hävittäjälentolaivue 11. komentaja everstiluutnantti Aki Heikkinen kertoo, että ilmasta-maahan-asejärjestelmän päivitys etenee vaiheittain. Ensi vuoden alusta lähtien operatiivisessa valmiudessa ovat JDAM-pommit, joiden kantama on yli 10 kilometriä.
- Lisäksi käyttöön tulevat JSOW-liitopommit, joiden kantama on yli 100 kilometriä. Vuoden 2016 aikana ilmavoimien on tarkoitus aloittaa vaiheittain JASSM-ohjusten käyttöönotto. Niiden kantama on yli 370 kilometriä, Heikkinen sanoo."

"Colonel Aki Heikkinen of Lapland air base tells, that the air-to-ground upgrade is phased. From the beginning of next year (=2015) the JDAM is in operative capability with their over 10 km range.
- Also the JSOW glide bombs will be taken into use with their over 100 km range. During 2016 Air Force has a plan to start phasing in JASSM missiles. Their range is over 370 km, Heikkinen says."
