  • I'm sure more people want a SU-27 and I would be happy to get one, but to be honest I don't really love operating Russian aircraft. The cockpits are ergonomic nightmares, everything's in metric, and the HUD and Avionics are never user-friendly. I'd be happy to experience it as a curiosity, as I do with...

    replied to Silent Mode - Attack Radar
    Radar silent means enemy fighters won't see you on RWR. Unknown if this works on AI (I doubt it) but should work on human pilots. They can still pick you up on their own radar of course if you're within their search cone/range. Best used for sneaking past hostiles at low level on a strike mission or...

  • I have the f/A-18 stick and also use the real-life mappings and nothing else. I mean, that's why you bought it, right, to have a stick just like the real plane?


    Sensor Select is used for the TPOD. Radar elevation and raid/fov and TDC cursor are all available on the throttle in the...

    replied to Can't lock Aim-9M
    Make sure you hold down the Uncage button with the boresight over the target, then try pulling a little lead and verify the seeker is following the target. It sometimes takes a second of holding it down, won't work on a single press....

  • I would assume it matches the reference CG, since they base their calculations and values on available documentation.

    replied to Can't lock Aim-9M
    So I'm understanding you right: You're in boresight mode with the AIM-9M. You put the circle on the bandit and hear tone. At this point, if you press and hold uncage for a second or two, what should happen is the circle will become 'glued' to the bandit if it moves around your HUD as the seeker head...

  • No, missile override is not meant for ACM. It's a quick way to select AMRAAMs as well as custom radar settings (not implemented yet), separate from the regular AA master mode. It ought to remember its settings from the last time you opened it in the same flight (although I'm not sure if this is implemented...

    replied to Afterburner detent
    In settings you have the option to enable the afterburner detent - you can bind fingerlifts to a button and use that to push through the detent in-game.


    If you don't do that, you need to hear the afterburner audio feedback as well as look at your fuel flow gauge on the IFEI to see...

  • If I'm a designer on the A-10 HOTAS, and I have to have one switch which needs to both cycle left and right MFD pages and assign SOI to any screen or HUD. I can set long press to one of those two sets of functions. What's more annoying for the pilots? Long press each time I want to change to the next...

    replied to Dilemma : Beta/Stable Version
    IMO no big downside to using beta. I've never been bothered enough by a beta bug that it was a show-stopper to me. On only one or two occasions over the last 5 years or so have I delayed an update for a day or two to wait for a hotfix before updating. Really not a big deal. And the benefit is getting...

    replied to updating manual
    It's pretty normal for brand new features in early access modules to not show up in the manuals for months sometimes.


    Please see Wags' latest videos on how to use Maverick and HARM:

    replied to ARMAAMS in TWS
    If your radar can see the targets in TWS mode, even if they aren't currently designated, all AMRAAMs in the air should receive midcourse updates toward their targets. In auto TWS mode, the only way you would stop sending midcourse updates is by switching radar modes or the target leaving your radar...

    replied to mark points
    Not at this time. Unsure if this will be possible in the future, but I have read that in real life windman ground target designations can transmit onto your SA page via datalink. Maybe they can be hooked/loaded that way, but I do not know....

    replied to [REPORTED] Maverick target locking help
    Only tested with AGM-65H last night so far, but it was very consistant behavior that the Mav seeker would slew to the TGP upon TMS up, but it would never lock. I had to manually lock the target on the WPN page. Auto mode was active on the TPOD.

    replied to September Announcement
    I appreciate the definitions of what Razbam considers beta, release, finished, etc. Seems a bit off from the software definitions I've been familiar with, but I know this is typical of DCS in general.



    Normally, software implemented with barebones features and having constant...

    replied to Ground radar offset?
    My understanding is that the offset required is only a limitation of the way Doppler Beam Sharpening works. The Viggen has no DBS so it has no problem with radar mapping across its entire field of view (just like the Hornet's in normal mode). The JF-17 and F-16 have different radars than the Hornet...

  • Do you have data to confirm this behavior? It makes sense to me that the outer bombs drop first, to provide a better roll rate and less load on the outer wings. It seems to work this way on most planes.

    replied to Hope add "Push back" function on carrier
    I've seen how simple it is in MSFS2020 to do this. One keybind starts pushback, press again to stop it, super simple. A great bonus if they manage to add a person on a cart that can come up and push you back too, but unneeded.
