    [CORRECT AS IS] TGP boresight

    Hi, loving the upgraded A-10.

    Just been on a training mission to try out the new stuff and found that whereas previously I could recage my TGP to boresight with China Hat Aft Short when TGP is SOI, this now operates the LSS function - I think this has changed since the previous version, although I could just be getting my muscle memory confused

    Many thanks

            hopefully it's an oversight. as a workaround you can reset the TGP by switching it to STBY mode

              Its not an oversight its written in the DCS manual and the A-10C-1 manual.

                  There is no bore sight command based on our docs. Thanks.

                    Did this change for the regular A-10C too? Neat.

                      TGP not resetting with China Hat Aft

                      As per title, China Hat Aft short is not resetting the TGP, instead it starts LSS.

                      Steps to reproduce:
                      1- Make sure China Hat Aft is mapped in the controls
                      2- Move the TGP around
                      3- Press China Hat Aft Short

                      expected: TGP should reset to boresight mode
                      actual: TGP goes in LSS mode

                          They recieved feedback from an SME that this is not a thing in the real aircraft. Its not a bug, its a feature.

                              Correct, as there is no HOTAS function now

                                  No, it's the same as it was for old A-10C.

                                      So to clarify, to put the TGP back to boresight, you need to set the TGP back to standby and then back to A/G mode. Correct? Seems cumbersome compared to prior, but if it's accurate that is all that really matters.

                                      Cheers,

                                        On the previous version of A-10C the boresight function of TGP was mainly used to reset Gimbal Roll. On this new version it seems that the Gimbal Roll is reseted automatically. I made some quick test and when you lock a target the TGP come back to a centered position before locking SPI. May be I'm wrong but this is what I noticed. In this case reset TGP to boresight is less important.
                                        I will do more test tomorrow...
