  1. Hmmmm I'll try it today by just aligning one missile on each rack. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I do every missile. Each missile has it's own "eye" in the nose so I'm assuming every missile needs calibrated. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. You did it right. Do NOT do TMS aft after clicking boresight on the WPN screen. Just cycle to the next missile. Here's how I do it, and it works perfectly. TGP on WPN on Slave TGP to target MAN to AUTO TMS up Make WPN page SOI slave Maverick 1 to target TMS up Push NWS button to select Maverick 2 Slave Maverick 2 to target TMS up Push NWS button to select Maverick 3 And so on. Once you cycle back to Maverick 1, it will be off target again but once you lock a target in flight, it'll work. Just make sure you're in range or the handoff won't complete.

  4. Works fine. You have to set it how you want it to operate though. Want it to follow steerpoints? Keep altitude? Keep attitude? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. Just curious how far away the sniper pod is. Two weeks? Or "two weeks" [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Did the slew upgrade, and the instructions had me update the throttle software. Left throttle (Z-rotation) isn't responding. Nothing shows up on calibration tools. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Everything on my throttle works, except the left throttle (Z-rotation) isn't anymore. Anybody got any fixes? I recently did the slew upgrade and ever since then it stopped working. I updated the throttle as the instructions said, is that what did it? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I just do it by hand/feel. I've never scraped a tail or trimmed for an approach. I put the FPM in the bracket and adjust throttle as needed to keep it there between 150-160 knots. On approach it put the FPM at the beginning of the runway, and is get close I move it to the end. Then right before touchdown go to idle throttle, and let her glide down. Aero brake till about 100-110 knots, and that's all there's to it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. If they say there were Vipers that were able to load, and fire HARMS from those 4 stations, it's not a Frankenload. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. Omg just chill. It's just a game. For fun. Relax. You want uber realism? Toggle the option to only fire 2 HARMS. Want to have your cake and eat it too? Toggle it so you can fire 4. It's THAT simple. Don't like carrying 6 Mavs "because realism"? Carry 4. People need to relax and stop trying to force what they think is right onto others. We can all now choose for ourselves.@BIGNEWY would it be possible to do a similar option like the HARMS selection switch, for drag chutes? Since there were some F-16C's that had them?

  11. My main planes are the Tomcat and Viper, and that's how I see the Hind and Apache. In the Tomcat you're a stick and rudder analog pilot, while in the Viper you're a flying systems engineer. The Hind, like the Tomcat, is very analog and requires decent piloting skills whereas the Apache will be like the Viper, a lot of the flying is done for you/made easier so you can focus on systems.

  12. If you're slamming forward right after landing, you're coming in too fast. The Viper likes to land very softly, around 160ish depending on load out and fuel. I like to keep the AOA around the center of the bracket, air brakes open, and before touching down power to idle. Then as she slightly flares, just kiss the runway and hold that attitude till about 100-120 knots or so. The lighter she is, the longer the nose stays up. Then just keep the stick aft to use the stabilizers as an air brake, and start putting in wheel brakes. When the HUD stops showing speed, turn on NWS and just turn off the runway to park.

  13. The Phoenix, to my understanding, shouldn't show up on RWR until it goes Pitbull. Which depending on how the target size switch is set, is as little as 3 seconds. The plane guides it in, then it goes active at a certain TTI depending on aforementioned target size switch. As far as AI turning away goes, I don't know. I tend to fire my Phoenix's and then turn away 30 degrees to maintain separation while they guide. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. Why can't I fire gun pods, and then rocket pods? They're separate settings on the weapon switch. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. I'd pay the full $80, in a heartbeat Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  16. Always in relation to you. 12 o'clock is always in front, 6 behind, 9 and 3 left and right. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  17. Make sure you fine tune the Steerpoint with the TGP before launching the JSOW. Mine were missing too, and that was because the Steerpoint it uses in PRE mode is either slightly off target, or way up in altitude, or a combination of both. And that causes the JSOW to explode in the wrong spot/altitude and the ammunition drifts off target. Climb to an altitude where you can comfortably see the target through the TGP, slew it onto your target, then fire the JSOW when you're in JIZ range (giggidy) and watch the carnage.

  18. I have the reverb G2. Maybe the handle is just a hair off from fully back, I don't know. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  19. Heatblur should be happy about it. It shows how well they've done with the A and B, and how happy the community is with it, that they want the D as well. It's a compliment. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  20. You can push it in. Just like with cold start. You might need to do it palm facing up (blue line) to do it. Can't remember. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  21. Turn less tight. Don't bleed energy and don't be in a rush. Also don't turn horizontally. Turn with your nose slightly up if you need to lose speed, and your nose slightly down if you want to gain/keep speed. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  22. LGB's, Mavericks, JSOW, JDAM, all fun. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  23. Tested the JSOW on an SA-6 site, made sure the steerpoint/SPI was on the radar unit with the TGP, launched on PRE mode, and the site was sufficiently damaged to be out of commission. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. Get a Reverb G2. Huge improvement Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  25. The Tomcat is just a better fighter. The Navy used stripped down Vipers (called the F-16N) as aggressors and our Vipers aren't stripped down. The Viper also has limits built into the controls and won't allow you to pull beyond a certain load, whereas the Tomcat can, and will. The Viper has better armament but if you take those advantages away, and you're up against a decent Tomcat driver, you're SOL. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
