  1. Hear hear! Despite what the naysayers might have us believe, I do think we are in a golden era of military flight simulation thanks in large part to ED's hard work. What a thrill to watch this masterpiece take shape.
  2. TBH I think we are seeing a tacit acknowledgement from ED that the EW system in DCS needs a complete overhaul. IIRC they were advertising for an EW SME/specialist a while ago. I suspect the Hornet ASPJ functionality is just the first step in a much larger process.
  3. So I've been looking through the control settings on the Hornet and I can't seem to find where I can bind ECM XMIT/OFF to anything? I have a BlackHog panel that I'd like to bind it to. Any clues?
  4. Interesting. So will the ASPJ placed in XMIT jam enemy fighter radars that are painting ownship in TWS mode, for example? Or will they be unaffected?
  5. Tried this myself with solid results - FPS is now buttery smooth. Nice one!
  6. NASAMS might come close to filling the gap if it was in game. It's not a system you'd be likely to see in any of the theatres/factions/timeframes depicted in DCS though.
  7. True enough, nevertheless the targets did deploy a rather massive quantity of flares, which is consistent with a very high level of IRCCM from the missile. This is also echoed in all of the literature I have read on the subject (eg. the source I attached to that same post) indicating that imaging infra-red (IIR) seekers like the one on the AIM9X represent a generational step above those you might be used to on missiles like the AIM9M, R73 or Magic II, with a corresponding jump in IRCCM capability. This is also reflected in the trend toward IIR guidance found in numerous current and emerging SR
  8. Thought this might be relevant: infrared_guiding_systems_PASTOR.pdf
  9. Has anyone heard any updates on this? I have been experimenting with high altitude PvP BVR in the Hornet with some success, but I think GEN-X could be particularly handy. Can't wait to see how it is modelled in-game.
  10. I believe China uses the LD-2000 in the land-based CIWS role. Perhaps Deka will bring it in at some point...
  11. My guess is he is referring to the extended range variants (ET/ER) which are ~100kg heavier than the baseline iterations IIRC.
  12. Yeah, the US now uses a variety of different target drones to simulate various threat ASMs. I believe the work derived from the Kh31 acquisition ultimately led to the supersonic GQM-163. As has been said there has been very little real-world application of many of these systems as there simply hasn't been a major naval conflict within which to do so. The most recent example that comes to mind is the USS Mason successfully defending itself against multiple Houthi ASMs - likely Chinese made C802's. https://news.usni.org/2016/10/15/cno-richardson-uss-mason-attacked-cruise-missiles-off-yemen
