Save a target?
Is there a way to save a target (point or area) designated in TPOD or DMT (where the carrot is pointing), so that it can be called up later, kind of like a waypoint?

I can't think of any way right now to do this. Probably an unimplemented feature. As far as I know, we can add waypoints manually via UFC, or we can create a flyover markpoint, or we can create a waypoint offset. That's it right now.

I think its called a target point IIRC, and I don't think its implemented, I'd check the tacman for an actual procedure how its done.

That would be nice feature, but not really requirement for me.

There is a way IRL with our harrier to save "Target Points", As well as waypoints, markpoints and offsets.

Quick access to this menu is the WP Seq select button. Then select the corresponding Target point on the ODU.

However this is still not modeled, and hopefully will be available whenever the JDAM comes I believe what Zeus was waiting for. The only way that I know of to access the Tpoint and save them is with the F10 kneeboard menu load, and to use from the CAS page. Obviously a work around until its fully implemented.

Thanks for the answers guys.

I don't understand what is meant by "F10 kneeboard menu load". I know the F10 default to open the game map view. I also know that waypoints set in the ME have their corresponding map pages put into the kneeboard, but of course waypoints you add yourself during the mission do not have those map pages added.

What am I missing here?

For the process of entering F10 map marks and "uploading" to the MFD CAS page:




Function seems intended for upcoming JDAM, but is working (at least in Beta) currently.

You create user mark points on the F10 map labelled T01, T02, T03, etc.

Using "F10 kneeboard menu load" simulates these co-ordinates being sent by a JTAC as ATHS (Automatic Target Handoff System) text messages that appear on the AV-8B's CAS page.

You can then assign individual messages (JTAC co-ordinates) to AV-8B Target Points (T1 to T4).

By switching between the Target Points (T1 to T4), you can attack them with conventional weapons and/or GPS weapons.

Note: From the video it appears T01 isn't received by the AV-8B so (for now) you should use T01 as a dummy point and T02, T03, etc. for your actual targets.

Huh this is actually working now? When did that happen?

About a month ago now. Same time jdams appeared on load out.

All times are GMT. The time now is 08:07 PM.
