  1. The barber pole is displayed as long as the speed brake switch is out of OFF and the boards are moving. It is an "in transit" indicator.
  2. Maverick boresight is already implemented in A-10C, so... However, since every missile rail and every Maverick GCS has "perfect" alignment by default in DCS, there's no need to boresight the missiles unless you want to have them bore sighted to 150 mils for medium-altitude work, vice low-altitude work. It sounds more like the OP is talking about slaving, not boresighting.
  3. A-10C has had the same bug for years. Steering cue should be wind-corrected but isn't. It was correct at one point, but like many things--the flashing Maverick pointing cross, for instance--it got messed up one day and was never fixed.
  4. A-10C can see everything any Link16 player can see, as long as their is a gateway and the desired donors are added to the donor list. ED left out 75% of the real TAD capabilities.
  5. I was going to post a rant about the dangers of taking the word of people who get all their knowledge from PC games, but I decided against it.
  6. I'm not able to fly DCS for the time being, so I can't say for sure. But based on the comments in this thread and the graph showing no difference between anti-skid on or off, something isn't right. It could be the anti-skid simulation. But it could also be the ground friction simulation, or the physical simulation of the brakes themselves (i.e., not the computer that controls the anti-skid function). It's difficult to say. Nevertheless, the end result is presently incorrect.
  7. What I like about simmers is how they "think", "guess", "suspect", and are "sure" of things they've never experienced, and their willingness to tell actual pilots how they must be wrong because the answer doesnt fit their limited academic understanding of a topic. I could show you dozens of cases across dozens of aircraft types which prove that your average anti-skid braking system has PLENTY of power to lock the mains even on a dry, grooved, porous friction overlayed runway. From fighters to 747s. But unless someone is an F-18 pilot (and sometimes even if he is), the answer isn't good enou
  8. SADL understands J-series (TADIL J/Link 16) and K-series (SADL VMF) messages. Anything shared on the Link 16 network can be shared and understood by a SADL terminal through the gateway.
  9. To whomever deleted my post above (Rule 1.15) can you PM me please?
  10. That's not correct. SADL players (A-10C and some F-16C) can see and share all J-series messages with all other Link 16 players through a gateway. A-10s can see fighter radar lock lines, AWACS/RJ/JSTARS surveillance tracks, donor SPI/LOS, etc. And vice versa. MIDS LVT, MIDS JTRS, EPLRS, etc, are just network terminals. The gateway acts as a router and forwarder between Link 16 and SADL networks. EPLRS is fully capable of sending and receiving numerous J-series messages, not just PPLI.
  11. Disagree with the OP almost entirely. Although I do agree that some of the settings shown arent realistic, such as presetting the altimeter and such. Real fighters have the ability to preset dozens and dozens of avionics options that, realistically, vary from sortie to sortie and some that vary from pilot to pilot. The problem is that currently, what settings one jet gets from the .miz, they ALL get. And for reasons that are too complex to type right now, that's not realistic at all. We NEED to be able to individually setup our avionics independent of what the mission designer does. In f
  12. For far too long this community has lacked meaningful interaction with real fighter pilots, relying instead on a few maintainers and herbivore drivers to give flight sim nerds perspective. I for one welcome our new single-seat overlords! Also, this thread now reads like 50% of BaseOps threads, and I love it. All we need now is a finance guy to represent the shoe clerks!
  13. Nah, that's not right. The Dash-34 actually says: "Up to three missiles, live or training may be loaded on a LAU-88" The statement about G-model Mavericks is correct, but is also true for G2s and Ks. A TGM-65G/K can be loaded though, because missile weight doesn't include the warhead. And, "Launching Maverick missiles from the inboard rail of a LAU-88 should be avoided to minimize paint and rain erosion coating deterioration."
  14. Yeah, because you pulled it out of the depths of your vast AGM-65 systems knowledge all on your own? I "asked" which launcher not because I wasnt sure, but because it follows logically that using the LAU-88 would cause the problem being described. I was merely confirming that fact. But whatever. I guess it's too difficult to just say thank you.
