in the launcher there is mp settings
go to settings > multiplayer > connect to multiplayer network
pick a callsign and a server

as for the dogfight i think you need to install the bombable addon and have a plane that supports bombable for (eg mig-15)

the current methodology is not the bombable addon... OPRF has a better system in place and they do battle ops quite a bit... they also have aerial drones you can fly with/against... search OPRF for the details...

i'm sorry but i cannot read/understand that image...

guessing, i suspect it is looking for FGData but i don't know... if it is looking for the data subdirectory, you need to download another file for that... BUT there should be a complete install exe though... it'll be larger but it will contain the data being sought...

i don't know what link you used for your flightgear but this one should hopefully be better https://sourceforge.net/projects/flightgear/files/release-2020.3/FlightGear-2020.3.4.exe/download

i'm using FG on linux and don't speak french. but possibly you need to download an additional component of flightgear called 'fgdata'. The 'Telechargement' button might do that.
from what i grasp of the french text you might also have to unpack the downloaded file to a folder of your choice. and after that select the folder using the 'Choisissez un dossier...' button.

yes, that's looking for FGData... look back up topic and try downloading 2020.3.4 from the link i provided above... it should have everything and not be the "lite" installer...

There is the Bombable addon. I am not sure if it is compatible with the current FlightGear though. For that in multiplayer against other people, look up OPRF (Operation Red Flag).

pedantic: FG is a simulator; not a game... you can play games in a simulator but you cannot do proper simulation in a game ;)

as far as dogfighting goes, i recommend OPRF (aka OPeration Red Flag)... they have target bots as well as multiplayer missions against other teams...

OPRF might have scenarios... idk for sure... i do know that OPRF's methods are much less invasive than bombable...
