    [REPORTED] Lack of Hydra Rocket options

    The Harrier should be capable of fielding the full range of 2.75'' hydra rockets as well as the older FFAR rockets. It should be able to use these rockets in both the LAU-68 or LAU-3 pod

    On the Arming screen 2.75'' rockets with the M151 warhead are available in the LAU-68x3 pod but not in the single LAU-68 pod or the LAU-3 pod.

    The DCS airfield inventories lists the Hydra family of rockets and the FFAR rockets separately.

    Would it be possible to get the M151 hydra 2.75'' rocket in the single LAU-68 and LAU-3 pod added.

    Though I'm not sure if its specific to the harrier, the Marines used only specific warheads on LDH craft IFAIK but will consult with the SME on this matter.
    Know and use all the capabilities in your airplane. If you don't, sooner or later, some guy who does use them all will kick your ass.

      It's an issue since day 1. Razbam when creating the payloads did not realise there are 2 different generations of unguided rockets in DCS (FFAR and M151) and randomly mixed both of them.

      Of course if was reported several times over the years.

        I think that comment was unnecessary, I'm looking into it and have brought it to the devs attention and when our SME gets back to us well let you know.

          The devs are already aware, at least according to your predecessor.
