  • What can I use CombatFlite for?

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

     

    DCS mission planning

    Plan the entire package

    Create a mission plan easily and in a timely manner

    Insert user objects such as holding and refueling orbits, CAPs or reference points. Create flight routes quickly and easily by snapping waypoints to airfields, nav points, reference points or orbit anchors. Move multiple overlaid objects together. Clone flights and objects and organize them into packages and layers. Navigational data are automatically calculated using an atmospheric model.

    Rehearse your mission

    See flights' positions. Check your timings.

    Playback your mission using a timeline control tool. All important events, such as 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 simply jump to a significant event using the controls below.

    Vertical route profile

    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 stand-alone Rich Text Format (.rtf) file. DCS users can export the briefing into a .miz file.

    Kneeboard

    Generate handy kneeboard packs

    Coordination Card, Mission Data Card, Maps, Imagery

    When you're done planning, generate a pre-filled customizable mission data card (with a navigation log, communication frequencies, package composition and more), a coordination card for the whole package, individual route maps, as well as custom imagery. Export to a MS Excel spreadsheet (templates included). DCS users can export the kneeboard pack into a .miz file.

    Planning Blue and Red

    DCS and Prepar3D support

    Enhance your flight sim experience

    Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) and Prepar3D support is integral to CombatFlite. You can import and export missions and various data from/to DCS, as well as flight plans from/to Prepar3D.

    DCS AJS-37 Viggen data cartridge

    DCS Users: Custom Viggen cartridge

    Create custom data cartridge for the DCS AJS-37

    Export any flight route you have created to a custom data cartridge file for the DCS AJS-37 Viggen. You can add Mark points, Rb-15F Missile points and Recce (RUTA) points. Speaking of Viggen, you can also import your AJS-37 ELINT data from a mission and visualize it on a map.

    DCS Ka-50 ABRIS

    DCS Users: 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.

    DCS Ka-50 ABRIS

    DCS Users: Custom CMDS settings

    Edit and export CMDS settings for the Hornet, Hog & Viper

    A graphical user interface allows you to set up your CMDS profiles for your favorite DCS module.Visualize the countermeasure sequences on a timeline.

     

    Import your current profiles from a corresponding DCS .lua file. Export your newly made settings directly back into the correct file.

     

    Supported DCS modules are the F-16CM Viper, F/A-18C Hornet or the A-10C Warthog & A-10C II Tank Killer.

  • FAQ

    I have made a donation to support CombatFlite development. Can I have a free product key?

    Yes! If you made a donation to support CF over the time, no matter the amount, you are eligible for a free product key. If you are interested in obtaining your free license, please contact us.

    I have bought a license but have not received my product key yet. What's wrong?

    Product keys are sent out via email shortly upon making the purchase. If you have not received a message with your key, please check your spam folder. In any case, feel free to contact us and the email will be resent to you.

    CombatFlite does not launch or crashes after startup. What should I do?

    Sometimes an antivirus is preventing the launch of CombatFlite. Consider adding CF to the list of safe applications within your antivirus. Also, administrator rights might be necessary to allow CF create folders and copy files. Consider running CF as an administrator (right-click on the CF app icon and click on 'Run as administrator').

    I have found a bug. How can I report it?

    If you run into a bug, please contact us. If possible, attach CrashLog.txt (found in Documents\CombatFlite) and/or your .cf mission file. In case of running into problems importing or exporting a DCS .miz file, please attach the file in question.

     

    Reported issues will be examined and fixed as soon as possible.

    I would like to see a certain feature in CF. Is it possible?

    Yes. If you have a suggestion that you would like to share, or if you would like to see a specific feature in CombatFlite, please contact us. Even though not every request can be materialized, all suggestions are considered and many of them find their way into future updates.

    Are there any instructional videos or tutorials?

    Yes! The release of short video tutorials has already begun, with more episodes coming soon.
