  1. I notice that for DCS: Harrier that the lat/long format when you are punching in coordinates into the UFC that format is degrees, minutes and seconds. However, looking at real world reference material like the NFM-000 the correct format appears to be degrees, minutes and decimal-minutes. I also note that ED has already changed the DCS Hornet to this format as well. This more than just a nitpick. It also has practical application because all the TPODs in DCS display lat/long in this format and having to convert seconds into decimal-minutes when receiving coordinates is a real pain in the neck. EDIT: Just for clarification, the degrees, minutes and decimal-minutes format for lat/long appears at Figure 23-21 in NFM-000. There are also references to it at 1-254 and 1-258 in TAC-000.
  2. Anybody from outside of the NA have any luck getting the smaller plate for the Warthog Stick? I'm based in Australia and the part is not on the website for us. I have just sent an email to Wheelpro about it. I'll see what they say. Edit/update: Wheelpro guys got back to me and sold me the part via a manual PayPal transaction.
  3. Yep, confirm that was it - put the elevation in and it worked perfectly. I got confused because the Harrier INS seems to know the elevation of every piece of terrain in DCS and you never need to punch in elevation
  4. That is probably it. I was punching in a precise Grid for the WP on the HSI/UFC but did not input the elevation. I'll give it a go when I get back home from work.
  5. I am noticing if I WPDSEG a WP (even a precise one) the tpod doesn't slew perfectly to the point and is drifting i.e it is not ground stabilised. Meanwhile if I WPDSEG a MK point the tpod slews to the exact point and is ground stabilised. Is this correct behaviour?
  6. Check out this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/forum/english/digital-combat-simulator/dcs-mi-24p-hind/284838-soviet-russian-attack-helicopter-tactics-for-the-hind
  7. Well, as a child I recall playing a certain helicopter sim from 1996/1998 that modeled a MI-24V and the 12,7 mm turret gun was very useful in dealing with infantry and pop-up threats during ingress and egress to/from the objective, without having to alter the aircraft's course. :)
  8. Has anyone found any good documents or books describing how Hinds operate tactically-speaking? My limited experience it is not as easy as finding tactics for BLUFOR aircraft.
  9. @bkthunder Would you consider adding this to the bugtracker? Incorrect AFC and Altitude Hold implementation: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=275178
  10. I note that the AFC and Altitude Hold system appears to be incorrectly implemented in this module. The real AV-8B flight manual states the pilot can adjust the AFC (autopilot) in two ways:- 1. With stick movements up to 1 pound of force; and 2. By 'clicking' the manual trim i.e. using the trim hat. Currently in DCS you can only adjust the autopilot with the trim hat. When making small stick movements in AFC mode, nothing happens. If you make too big a stick movement the AFC disengages. The AFC rules of the DCS Harrier appears to be similar to the autopilot rules of the DCS M2000C. This is an issue because the Harrier does not have an equivalent to the Mirage's Autopilot Standby through which you make autopilot adjustments with the stick. In conclusion, in order properly implement the AFC system in the Harrier, the ability to make adjustments with small movements of the stick up to 1 pound of force needs to be added.
  11. I have noticed the same bug. Quite annoying because I like to use the sun visor for immersion.
  12. Thank you, Azrayen and Steph21, for your very informative replies. Certainly enough for me to go on here. :)
  13. I have pulled the Mirage out of the hangar lately and am curious what the standard formations are for this jet as used by the AdA. More specifically, I have two questions: 1. What are the formations, their spacing and reference points. I.e. what are the AdA equivalents of: - Fingertip/Parade - Route/Cruise - Tacform - Line abreast/Spread, Fighting Wing/Fighter Wing, Echelon/Deployed Echelon etc. 2. What the procedures and reference points for Rendezvouses? (For US aircraft the reference points are always to superimpose the outer wingtip on the vertical stabiliser, but I don't think that works for a delta wing...) Thanks in advance.
  14. Just gauging the interest in a milsim virtual RAAF F/A-18 Hornet squadron, with the following features: - Milsim unit flying land-based DCS: F/A-18C Hornets, based on no. 75 Sqn RAAF with a 2OCU flight for recruits. - Squadron training and events convenient for Australian timezones. - Weapons restricted to those used by the RAAF or equivalents. - Realistic training consisting of a total 12 checkrides, which would take 3-6 months to complete. - Realistic tactics, training and procedures mainly informed by publicly available RL USN/USMC documentation. (A necessary compromise due to the near non-existence of equivalent publicly available RAAF documentation) Just seeing how many people would be interested in something like this at this point. Feel free to reply to this thread or PM me.
  15. According to the NATOPS, depressing the Paddle should disengage the autopilot as well as interrupting the stability augmentation system and cancelling any rudder trim whilst the Paddle remains depressed. Once the Paddle is released the stability augmentation and any rudder trim is restored. There is nothing in the NATOPS about a 'trim reset' occurring. In other words, Shagrat it is supposed to work exactly as you expect!
  16. Bought the headset and I am happy to report that the Pro Clip clips on without issue. :thumbup:
  17. I am about to buy a new headset and have cast my eye on Thrustmaster T Flight Air Force Edition Headset. However, I am concerned that there does not appear to be a place to clip on my TrackIR Pro Clip, bar the metal extension (but even that looks dicey). Are there any TrackIR Pro Clip users around here with this headset? If so, what has been your experience using the Pro Clip with it?
  18. Wags has reported that the Hornet will be getting the AGM-65F in the next OB update: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3704424&postcount=93 Will Razbam be adding the AGM-65F to the Harrier as well?
  19. Probably has something to do with this: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3695255&postcount=17
  20. I notice that the Mk 76s (BDU-33s) do not work on the Conventional Circle targets (They hit the target but do not release their smoke), just as reported in this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=204306 Are there any solutions to this issue? I would like to keep it real if possible and use the Mk 76s for some Harrier training. P.S. Funnily enough if you hit the dirt strip of the Strafing Target the Mk 76 smokes.
  21. Not released yet. Here's hoping it is in the next update.
  22. Thanks for the great mod, Suntsag. It worked a treat for the MCALF I wanted to build.
