Not as good as the other maps but the only map with a Tornado sitting in it.

I think the tornado is under-used. Most of the time I find my self sitting at the ready on the run way with my pilot and me waiting for people to locate and spot armoured contacts. Most of the time all i hear is, "NEED CAS AT C?K?. ENEMY ARMOUR LASED!". Take off, reach location with me at the ready on the laser targeted missiles as we descend from the clouds seeing nothing but a bunch of trees and no lase (or a lased tree) and getting shot down out of now where from a J10 or AA.

However the best round Ive ever had on Qinling was in the CAS squad. I was the WSO (weapons system officer) in the Tornado. Lucky we had a commander in close contacts with the squads and when the squads were unable to provide lasers the commander would stick a CAS marker lase on the last known location of infantry and we would bomb the hell out of it with the laser target bombs.

After returning for ammo after our 3rd bomb run we taxied to the rearming location and we suddenly got contact reports from a RECON squad whom had an officer and sniper in the squad. After confirming the specific location of the contact (tank and APC convoy heading towards coal mine). They were on the way to pick up some infantry at coal mine to move on to the farm outpost.

As we ascended into the clouds we circled around the lake at about 2200ft in the sky until the spotters could move into position to lase. Commander radioed in stating the spotters are ready to lase said targets. After the commander updated our markers we made our last circle as we lined up with the marker. On-the-way was the que to lase targets. descending from the clouds once again with my pilot going in a straight slow line over coal mines dropping flares like a mad man, I released the bombs whilst frantically looking for the lase luckily the lase showed up finally and I locked on.

"Good hits" was all I saw on general chat followed by a request from the commander to make another round. So we circled back on the other side of the map to make our attack run. On-the-way was the lasing que again. Whilst my pilot was dropping his last few flares left, I released my last bomb and the lase showed up more promptly this time. I zoomed in during the lock and saw that the lase was a buring APC with infantry running away from it. I didnt get to see the explosion as we beat it at the speed of sound back into the sky since we had no more bombs or flares.

"Bodies flying, thanks for the support guys" I saw in general chat from the squad that lased for us. With the commander feeling on the top of his game he instructed us for rearm and repair. Heading up to the NW most part of the map to line up with the run way we were passed head on by an enemy jet for a split second. my pilot decided to shoot straight into the air as fast as we can. Leveling at about 3500ft in the air we circled a bit. and thought it was now safe to come down.

Made our line up again with the runway and landed safely. Feeling chuffed that we had been doing quite well in the Tornado together we decided to take off again immediately after we rearmed because there were no more spots from the infantry. We circled around the lake as the commander gave us bombing missions with his CAS markers. After blowing up what the commander thought were contacts but really werent we went back to base for more ammo. Immediately after we decided to RTB we were engaged by the enemy Jet again.

Pilot was screaming into VoIP, "S*** S*** S***, HES GOT A LOCK!" I looked behind us with the bomb cam (360 degree camera) and didn't see crap. Just fog and clouds. Pilot told me hes released all flares. Commander told us to do a fly by back at base and he would be ready with the AA. We rushed back to base at about 2000ft in the air and descended very quickly. Commander said he had no lock, that we were safe.

We quickly set up at the other side of the map to line up with the runway again but on our final approach we got locked up by the J10. Switched to bomb cam and he was just behind us about 20ft below us. Having no flares left we got shot down with nothing but our destroyed Tornado wreck falling short of the runway.

That was the best round i ever had. We won the round soon after.

If I remember correctly the Pilots name had the words "Viper" and "AAA" or "AA" in it. Really good pilot. Would love to fly with him again.

Your pilot was {AAA}Viper. Heh, you were so nearly there.

On-topic, I love Quinling. I think the scenery is lovely, and if the flag locations are good you can sometimes get pretty awesome firefights going on. Chances are you got a crap team...

Plus the fact that it is now the only map in PR with the Lynx on it...

Meh I like it, only thing that annoys me is the eye bleeding whiteness of the sky and the fact that the British jets already go so fast you can outrun AA missiles and it gets even worse when you fly at 2-3 Km height where you can't even orientate and find yourself flying out of the map all the time.
