    [A-4E Mod]-Mod: RWR

    IMPORTANT:
    Code:
    this modification will be part of the official A-4E-C 1.03 version.
    so this mod will not be developed  further or maintained.


    Even if its not 100% clear if or what kind of RWR the A4 has, I made a small mod for it, adding a 'RadarLock Warning' and 'RadarMissile Warning' sounds to it.

    Since there are no switches in the Cockpit, the system works as soon as the DC-Bus has power.
    The sounds are also from the Original A4-Mod(obst for the Lock and RadarAltWarning for the Launch)

    to install replace 2 files(devices/device_init) in the '\A-4E-C\Cockpit\Scripts\' folder and place the rwr.lua in the 'Systems' subdirectory

    'controlling' the Ka50 feels like a discussion with the Autopilot and trim system about the flight direction.

    What?! wow! thanks, I'll give it a whirl. I was just flying the scooter moments ago, and having fun with the 4x AGM-45 load out. :-)

        Excellent mod! thank you Nero!


        I'm using the weapons mod to allow a 4x AGM-45 loadout. Plus, I have a standard SEAD mission to go against a SA-6.

        On my first try (via your mod), that tone sure helped a lot! After hearing the tracking tone, I put the nose of the A/C right on that bad boy. Fired off the Shrike and managed a 50% damage hit.

        On my second mission, I had to use 3 Shrikes before killing the SA-6.

        Regardless, your Mod is a Keeper and a great addition to the A-4E-C.

        I've made it into a JSGME compatible format so that future A-4E-C updates don't clobber this.

        In short, this is awesome and thank you! I'm ready to SEAD!!! (but with the obvious limitations of the AGM-45).

          3rd mission with a 4 Shrike loadout. Heard the tone fired the first, no joy... but it came close... Used the terrain to cover my tracks, and then circled back... Got another tone I was being tracked... Put the nose of the A/C on that bad boy and fired another Shrike... Bingo! Though I did not get a kill (per the log book), I did render the AAA combat ineffective...

          awesome dude! thank you for the Mod, and thank you for the Dev's to allow the Mod's....

          Now, I'll go back to my traps via the Bug.... :-)

            This is a fantastic addition. I hope that the main Community A-4E team includes it as well as the flashing light. Just ran a little SEAD mission of my own with 2 shrikes, 4x Zuni Pods and a gunpod, and the aural warning really helps give that extra heads up that you really need.

                depends on the Version, some have a display, some only a Tone.
                We will see when/If the A4 team implements an Rwr

                    From the other thread:

                    https://books.google.com/books?id=ub...ceiver&f=false

                    "The A-4E had a little more room and was better able to accommodate the ALQ-51 as well as a rudimentary missile warning system. This gave an aural tone ('oodle, oodle, oodle') and a visual warning of a SAM launch in the form of a flashing red light marked 'SAM'.
                    So aside from the SAM light the mod is pretty accurate. Haven't tested it against gun radars yet though, which it should also be able to detect.

                        my mod goes by Lock and Launch events, no matter the source, i guess in RL it should only work on SA2s

                          Nope

                          This was just about adequate in the days when there was only one type of SAM, the SA-2 'Guideline'. The nature of the particular threat - including gun-laying radars and later SAMs as they came along -- could be determined with a practiced ear depending on the sounds, particularly the raw pulse-repetition frequency (PRF) warble in the earphones.
                          The book explicitly states that it could handle later SAMs and gun laying radars, just that aside from the PRF there wasn't much information provided. It didn't tell you explicitly what was being fired at you, from what direction and how dangerous that threat was to you, ala modern RWR displays. Your mod is accurate in terms of anyone aiming at you setting it off.

                              Wonder what does the main team think about the idea of integrating well made and realistic developments by members of community into their updates.

                                Thanks for this mod. It helps.

                                This A10 mod is the only one I know of that tried to simulate raw audio cues from the receiver.

                                Maybe some brilliant mind out there can apply it here, there, or everywhere.

                                      Initialy A4E had the simple "SAM" red light warning indicator and "oodle oodle" noise , However A4E from the community mod is late model A4E. Given the "humpback" retrofitted into its airframe to fit ECM and additional avionics like the factory produced A4F did in its Humpback.

                                      when dediciated RWR displays came ( starting around 196 it would have been the An/APR 25 RWR along with a display Scope like the A4F used in Vietnam

                                      Video : albeit concering F4, the RWR used here is AN/APR 25 as you will see. Symbology for the RWR scope display is applicable

                                        yea i save the videos, very interresting compared to our modern RwRs.
                                        But its out since we are missing the EW-panel to switch the different options on and off. Not to mention the Display so "DedoooDedoooo" it is
                                        'controlling' the Ka50 feels like a discussion with the Autopilot and trim system about the flight direction.
