I haven’t flown in BMS for well over 6 months and it sits on my desktop like an old friend that I have lost contact with. I recently saw a video of a guy showing some in depth features of mission planning in the campaigns.
I had no idea you could add/delete change squadrons and do a whole lot more with this free tool that you can get here.
So I have been busy planning a strike package on an enemy runway. In much the same way you use Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations you assign and use various assets to complete your mission. The tricky part is timing. This is easily overcome by using that old fashioned method of actually writing things down. Watching it all unfold from the cockpit of an F-16 is simply fantastic.
You can also watch the scenario play out from the campaign screen. This method is viewed as cheating but as a good commander rehearsal is an important aspect of planning. Yes it is!
