Enhance your DCS simming experience with CombatFlite.

An awesome tool to plan your Viggen missions! Check it out! Fully compatible with the Viggen's custom data cartridge functionality as well as ELINT gathering capability.

What can I use CombatFlite for?

Flight planning easier and faster. Take a glimpse at how CombatFlite can help you.

 
Plan the entire mission



Create a mission (single/multi player) and export it to DCS

Insert user objects such as holding, refueling or AWACS orbits, CAPs, SEAD CAPs, or reference points. Create flight routes by snapping waypoints to airfields, nav points, reference points or orbit anchors. Move multiple overlaid objects together. Clone flights and/or organize them into packages. Navigational data are automatically calculated using an atmospheric model. Use advanced tools, such as inter-visibility plot or terrain and slope visualization. Mark important areas by polygons, circles or labels. Export as a DCS .miz file.


Blue and Red planned separately, then merged



Let Blue and Red side leaders plan their flights separately. Send them to the Game Lead to merge them.
 

Send a CF mission file with a general situation (airspace, intel scenario) to the Blue and Red leader. Let them plan their side's flights. Send the Blue and Red CF mission files back to the Game Lead, who will import the Blue and Red flights into a single CF mission. Export as a DCS .miz file and go fly!


Rehearse your mission



See flights' positions. Check your timings.

Playback your mission using a timeline control tool. All important events, such as vulnerability times, on-station times and TOTs, are highlighted for easier overview. Hit play or move the slider and watch where the flights are in various phases of the mission. Or jump to significant events using the controls below.


Create a briefing pack



Auto-generated briefing text. Stunning imagery.

Have the briefing text automatically generated. Add map snapshots, vertical route profiles, weather visualization, mission timeline, package flow, or any image to your briefing. You can export the briefing as a part of a .miz file, or as a stand-alone Rich Text Format (.rtf) file.


Generate handy kneeboards



Mission data card, maps, custom images

When you're done planning, generate a pre-filled customizable data card (with a navigation log, communication frequencies, package composition and more) and a route map. You can add custom images and insert the pack to your .miz file, print it or export it as .png files for use as a custom kneeboard.


Load your Viggen cartridge. Visualize ELINT



Create custom data cartridge for the DCS AJS-37

You can easily export any route you have created as a flight plan to a custom data cartridge file for the DCS AJS-37 Viggen. You can then load it in-game and let the Viggen's navigation system take care of the rest.

Speaking of Viggen, you can also import your ELINT data gathered in a DCS mission, identify the threats and have them visualized on a map.


See it all on your ABRIS



Export and see objects at your DCS Ka-50's ABRIS

You have the option to export flight plans, polygons, orbits, circles, reference points, nav points and other objects to your DCS Ka-50's ABRIS system to have them on your moving map in-game! The ABRIS settings are injected directly to a .miz file of your choosing. Saves you time creating all that manually in the game. Greatly enhances your situational awareness.

I've always wanted something like this for DCS. BMS has a similar great tool for mission planning. I'll test it next time I fly in DCS.

It's about time they did something like this.  I've been wanting a way to do mission planning  that can upload into the plane.

That's because the new maps (see below), together with elevation data will be downloaded from an update server after installation. You'll be prompted to do so after launching the app.

Most important changes include a new map engine (using MBTiles), auto-update functionality, much faster kneeboard generation, METAR to UniversRadio link-up, theater and aircraft updates, plus several bug fixes.



Hot-fixed 1.0.3
Updated 16 Nov 2018
