Thread: Harrier updates

  1. #1

    Default Harrier updates

    As the title says this is to keep people up to date with what’s new, I know most of you go on the ED forum, but just in case you miss them

    Today work started on the AV-8B Armament Control Panel. God willing we will have it ready fairly quick. The rework will include the AGM-65Es and revision of the CCRP, CCIP symbology.




    This rework will also enabled the following UFC functions:

    WPN: Weapons Delivery Programing

    TOO: Target Of Oportunity.

    TMR: Timing functions.

    INS Designation (designating a waypoint/markpoint as a target).




    Regarding the APKWS II rockets, their inclusion depends on how complex is defining laser guided missiles. If too complex, then they won't be included. Otherwise I will add them to the weapons suite.

    I didn’t notice laser guided missiles before...I’m sold!
    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    Latest thing is that they have removed a couple of the AGM-65 models and left us with the E and the G versions (G has the bigger warhead and is IR guided and E is laser guided).
    There seems to be a bug with the DMT switch on and using Mavericks though.

    Ive only had one problem using the laser mavs, when designated with the tpod and I uncage the first missile sometimes the tpod moves of the target and I need to re-adjust it, I’ve fired two with a 10sec delay after first missile hits you gotta be quick and move laser to the next nearest target.
    Also there is a bug, the laser only reaches 8-9 miles, I’ve fired from 12 miles and flew towards the target still lasing and there’s no problem cos by that time your within 8 miles, but if you turn away the Mav flys towards the end of your laser beam and explode, hopefully this will be sorted soon

    Next step after that will be the offsets.
    Note: Multiple targetpoints not enabled yet.

    As for Quicksteer ..Aint got a clue but as soon as I know, you will
