  1. Yeah just another thread of many that didn’t need requiring posting yet another one so yes please Move along......
  2. The code displayed down the bottom is for the laser when firing a weapon. When you press LSS the code in the same spot will be for LSS only. So make sure you change the code while in LSS to find the correct laser code. Don’t change it before pressing LSS. That’s if your not using the default 1688. you also need to be pointing in the general area of the target, however if your friend is in a A-10 or AV-8b they have a issue at the moment when user the laser for LSS at the moment. Their lasers are only firing at 10nm or something like that and not actually at the target beyond those r
  3. It is in the upcoming patch.
  4. I feel like I’m missing something here, Why should they both match each other? They are completely different missiles made from completely different technology from different countries. They don’t have the same motors or burn times they are totally different weights and shape. The only thing they share in common is they both fly and have the same role. But I will agree with you I feel the AGM-88 doesn’t do the job very well.
  5. In the F10 view draw a line along the side edge of the runway to get a more accurate heading. Then minus 6 (for the caucus map each map has a different mag variation) off that number and use the number your left with. E.g on the F10 map the runway number is 07 after I use the ruler to get a more accurate bearing I get 073 I minus 6 for mag variation and I come up with 067. I dial in 067 on HSI and land.
  6. I see your point however the modulation used is going to help the pulse compression which is the biggest factors to determining the distance a radar can detect between two objects. (Res cell) Range resolution is probably our biggest factor here and there are a few modulations that help in this area but they all have disadvantages also. There is one in particular modulation I can think off that has the best resolution that I am aware of but With Doppler processing (I say processing cause a Doppler capable radar doesn’t always use Doppler so they can change the process) it creates di
  7. just a couple of questions don’t take this the wrong way they are literally just questions 1. When you say the Res cell do we know what the modulation is used and what the pulse compression is for the Aim-120? 2. in the scenario asked do we know what effect the chaff would have in terms of AGC which is something that would need to be sorted out before processing begins? This one is very important I would be very interested to know how strong the return would be.
  8. Do you mean as for the User input stuff? If so I mean the user has the ability to manipulate the controls and setting/modes but yes they can just walk away and it will run themselves. Yeah sure my first radar I worked with was the small over weight MSTAR then moved onto GO12 & GO80. Left military and my new role was anti submarine with SV2020 & SV2022 upgraded to the APY-10 and now I do contracted work with a fairly new system. I don’t mean to be rude but I’ll have to leave the new system alone. It would be great to hear from the SME’s ED use. as for
  9. 18 years working with military radars ranging from short range radars to detect explosions up to airborne anti-submarine and air tracking radars. that are some of the best systems made to date and can I can absolutely put my hand on my heart and say none of those systems are that good. But basically it’s just my education opinion in the end That depends on what systems. A lot of Sam sites work as a network and they have great advantages over air to air radars. Remember the Aim-120 is a small tracking radar not a search radar. One is they can search and listen at the same time gr
  10. This is interesting, I always figured it was just it would pickup a bigger target further away then a small target so it goes active further away.
  11. This chart doesn’t help a lot for this specific situation without knowing what was being used. Sam radars are entirely different systems compared to air to air radars. Air to air will always be the inferior cousin to Sam networks. Do we know what system was used for these charts? I would imagine this is ground based information. what was the result they were trying to achieve. Are these results if the radar is now tracking chaff or is it the radar just lost lock on the aircraft? All chaff needs to achieve is to create problems for the radar to deal with and that will al
  12. This ship which is a LST took four 2,000lbs bombs and it took over and hour to actually start sinking. these types of ships are usually less armoured to allow for the extra weight for tanks and to still keep up with the fleet. So with a well placed bomb sure you could hurt and if super lucky sink a warship but unlikely you will sink it with one bomb Just like a tank if you can kill the running gear doesn’t mean it can’t keep shooting. Some ships in history have taken massive beatings and even direct torpedo hits which are far far far more devastating then a 2,000lbs bom
  13. I could be wrong but I do find that the Radar in the JF is slightly more narrow then most other modules, so you need to be a little more precise with your elevation then what you might be use to.
