      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

About This File

This is not my work and was made a long long time ago. If anybody knows the original author please let me know so I can give them credit for this.  This has been floating around the F4 community for years now.

This is a very helpful guide to get acquainted with the limitations of what is trying to kill you as you fly your missions,  When you frag a flight to certain areas you can use this guide to find out if a particular SAM site has its "guidance radar". The document has each SAM and the "Early Warning and Command radars." For new pilots a quick explanation.

If I frag a flight into area with SA-2 SAM sites. I can recon the SAM site and look if it has a "Fan Song" missile guidance radar from the documents description. If not it was previously taken out by another flight. Taking out the Fan Song Radar neutralizes the SAM  site and you can move on to more important target as this is no longer a threat. The document is very helpful in learning the threats and very handy to have a printout readily available. It might need some updating as Falcon keeps evolving but the main core of the info is pretty relevant. Below is a screenshot of what to expect in the download. It is in PDF format.
