    No, others SPI is 2-level "cake".

    If the donor is on your net.  This is a non-net friendly SPI from perhaps a (AI) Viper or Eagle.  Probably an A2A target.

    If you’re inside the 42nm rendering range, hook it and slave your TGP to it and you’ll see what it is.

  2. If you fly straight and level for too long, GBU-38s, GBU-31s and GBU-54s can “go to sleep” on you.  It’s a good practice to waggle your wings a bit or make slight turns so they stay awake.  If they “nod off” and you attempt to pickle, you’ll get an abort.

  3. One thing I find helps is to work attacks using Markpoints wherever possible and prosecuting attacks in STPT Mode where you can just Slave All 

     

    Relying on the TGP can be frustrating and disappointing if it Gimbal Rolls or jumps off the target at a critical point.

    I have been flying the A-10C II for a while now with no problems.  This just started in a self made mission that I have been working on and flown numerous times without a problem.  On cold start the DSMS is showing red on all stores, even though "load all" was done during start up.  I have done a reload all and there is now change.  Any ideas as to why this just started?

    Are you on a Neutral Base?  Are there weapons in the warehouse?

  5. I’d settle for an animated CC that, when told to pull chocks, disappears under the jet for a couple of secs and then comes back out with the chocks over his shoulder, gives you a salute, steps aside and away you go.

     

    It really doesn’t need to be the “dance” you get on the carrier because it’s not that much if a team effort just from parking.

  6. I was one who experienced this in the Hog-1.

     

    Aggressive maneuvering into a dive to spoof an SA-8 shut down one engine and knocked several other systems offline including making my INS go stupid.  Had this happen on two separate occasions.

     

    At no time did I put negative Gs on the jet.  
    ie, I did not “push” into the dive.  Now rolling hard into the dive may have put negative Gs on one engine, but I do not recall if the engine that quit on me was on the outside of the maneuver or the inside.  I’m positive it would not have been of a sufficient duration to snuff an engine.

     

    Just one of those things I guess.  I’ve never been able to reproduce it intentionally.
