  1. Thank you for the responses! I have learned much, re-learned some stuff too. I have no desire to know any more about how the DCS sausage is made, only that the missile performs as expected, and when they don't, that there's a reason. Too much of anything can be bad
  2. Yes, i, the OP, was mistaken about the PSTT not being active off the rail. However, the missile should guide before 10 NM. It should track like an AIM-9 looking at a giant afterburner. What you can clearly see in the tacview is that the missile, fired at 18 miles, does not track, it just flies in a straight line until 10 NM, then starts to track. What i hear HB saying is that the missile cannot guide before 10 miles because of the limits of the DCS engine / code. I don't quite understand this response. IF HB can make the missile guide properly at 100 miles for a TWS or PDSTT launch, then why
  3. same issue, can't look behind me because gigantic head cushion... not good.
  4. Recorded 5/3/2021 on most up to date OB patch: At ranges beyond 10 miles, the AIM-54 fired in PSTT goes dumb right off the rail. The enemy RWR (in this case, my buddy in the F-18) does not get a launch warning until the seeker goes active at ~10 miles, which you can clearly see happens in this tacview. This is also not functioning properly, as the AIM-54 fired in PSTT should never "go active" itself. The missile should be lost if the lock is terminated. The missile was not instructed to go hot off the rail. To me, it appears that the AIM-54C is using the same guidance logic as the 120, ma
  5. bu-dump-bump did some testing myself, as well. AIM-7MH seems to track fine in the tomcat on a MP server. The other two (F & M), go stupid right off the rail.
  6. It's not a free extra if they include it in the purchase contract. Sorry, but it's just not. I'm not trying to be myopic here. I am grateful to get the A-6 and Forestal, but I refuse to give them credit for giving something freely to the community. They entered into a contract with the community to deliver it vis-a-vis a paid F-14 module. They didn't have to do that, but they did.
  7. It's not free. They're not doing us a favor. It is part of the F-14 package, which means they are under contract to deliver it to the paying customers of the F-14. The fact that they're making it available to everyone, even non-paying customers is nice, but this pay now for work done later model is getting old.
  8. sometimes it gets stuck when just moving the TDC while in TWS
  9. this thread is great, i learned a bunch of stuff... thanks guys!
  10. FAQ: - differences between amraam guidance and AIM-54 guidance, like the inability to handoff from stt to internal guidance, etc...
  11. I hope the sound improvements will lower the pitch of the engines at idle to sound more realistic: to my untrained ear, the dominant pitch is almost an octave off... obviously there are lots of sounds / frequencies mixed in, but the dominant one you can hear is lower than what you hear in DCS
  12. I needed that chuckle. Thank you... and yeah, the jeff being on link 16 in DCS is an abomination.
  13. they said the data they need to build the F-14D to their standard is classified / unavailable. There are plenty of SME's available, but the 14D was a completely different bird avionics-wise as well as the FCS, wing box, etc etc... and given that Iran still flies the A, they aren't going to declassify that stuff any time soon.
  14. happens to me too. Fire at 2 bandits... crank a little, and he switches out of TWS... lose the tracks...
