  1. Question, in stp too mode, with only 2 waypoints, do you program the Waypoint 2, which is Target designated on hsi, as STP2 ? I tried a lot of thing but never obtained what I wanted. Either the path was not followed or the altitude programmed led the SLAM into the mountain like it had no altimeter to stay AGL…. Also obtained a very curious oscillation of the flight when approaching a turning point
  2. The waypoint succession is not followed in auto pilot CPL and jump from 2 to 6 impossible to go to waypoint 5 or less Bug of AFFCS CPL wpt seq on MFCD.trk
  3. On Caucasus map, the HSI/SA geography is normally displayed on 40/20/10/5NM scales but for : gulf map 5NM is missing syria map only 10NM scale is populated, Nevada 40/20/5NM scales are populated with map but not 10NM scale Normandy only 10NM scale has a map bug of display of map Nevada on MFCD.trk Bug of display of map Normandy on MFCD.trk bug of display of map syria on MFCD.trk

Weapons armed, A/G mode selected FLIR displayed on RMFD Maverick displayed on LMFD (stores then twice MAV) SOI on FLIR (diamond on the right corner top of the RMFD) Activation of FOV command on HOTAS (I) to switch between Wide/Narrow FOV on the FLIR selected as SOI results of change of the not SOI selected maverick FOV bug of FOV litening.trk
  5. Hi I think there is definetely a bug in the litening since the first version of the 2.7 while I compared it with the stable 2.5 (and all was described about use of the pod on Ytube and also the manual). Once locked in OPR, then ATRAK, it is impossible to get the offset cross middle of the reticle to relocate the pointing to another location. In PTRK, the offset cross does appear while pressing the TDC designation (enter) and can be moved. However, in previous 2.7 update, when pressing again the TDC, it didnt relocalized immediatly the reticle onto the offset position on the MFD dis
  6. True for the cancer I'm not medical doctor however I always managed staying outside transmission area particularly of big babies search radars....
  7. The offset cross of AAQ28 you could normally make appeared pushing the TDC depress when in ATRAK in the center of reticle cross does not appear while it is there in the stable 2.5 version….so you cannot move your first target easily to another place. In PTRK, offset cross does exist but reticle does not visually rally the shifted point when TDC depress is pressed after offset cross moving. You need to go back to OPR then return to PTRK to see that move on the cockpit display. However, the diamond and ASL does move immediately on HUD even without going back and forth. Hope fixing thi
  8. A self protection jammer can generally jam simultaneously several threats by several means. First there is built in several indépendant channels for indépendant techniques generation, generally at least 3. Second these channels are time shared into a single transmitter and antenna or to several antennas (front and rear for example). This can lead to a jammer power sharing except if jamming is activating the right channel when the right pulse is coming (based on pulses tracking loops or PRI trackers for each threats assuming pulse repetition is not agile…). Third a great number of similar rada
  9. Presently making virtual missions against a well organized simulated air defense using high digit sams and realistic mod as Skynet iads is a pure suicide specially if the terrain is flat and can’t mask the approach. Use of Harm as simulated in DCS is of no use as radars are cooperating to shut down and shorad can target the missiles. During the Kosovo war hundredth of AGM’88 have been shot with no results due to shoot and scoot strategy of opponent while it was much less organized llike a big nation state. This led to further attempts improving the AGM88 with an auxiliary millimeters seeker wi
  10. Compatibility issues between the radar and the jammer can be managed by the time (Look Through for the jammer receiver) and by the frequency. If the jammer is operating in low band for example and the radar in X band, a decoupling of relatives antennas can be sufficient. If the jammer is operating into the radar band for example to jam an AI radar of a fighter it is generally not possible keeping the whole capabilities of the on board radar. In this case, there is generally at least a blanked sector on the radar display.This is of course also related to relatives antennas position on the A/C.
  11. To answer another post about barrage, it seems there is a misunderstanding. Every SP jammer has generally several techniques into its portfolio. Confusion techniques, spot noise, cover pulse and barrage noise (in case of radar frequency agility ECCM) and deception techniques (RGPO/I and VGPO/I). It can also superimpose amplitude modulations against conical scan radars as the SA2 or Hawk system. So barrage noise is a not coherent few undredth of MHz noise transmitted to mask the RCS of the A/C In front a frequency agile radar. It deny the range but provides a good angle tracking mean to radar
  12. For obvious reasons, ECM are mostly badly represented in sims. Particularly jamming. Lack of information about a specific jammer is generally the case. However all the open sources informations about techniques are available in books like the 3 volumes Applied ECM from Leroy Van Brunt. ASPJ is an old generation jammer that encountered lot of problems (see GAO reports…) and was finally accepted by Navy that wanted an on board system at all cost. iDECM RFCM for the E/F type was much better as a truly coherent gate stealer among other. I’m also sorry to tell that chaffs (and flares of
  13. by experience 44NM on front aspect F-16 looks quite good for APG-73
  14. Just bought the campaign and on first mission after 20mn of flight trying to climb 25000ft I had engine cut off ...(I used auto start of so normally no soucy) why ??? Also does it exist kneeboards for each missions gathering info given in the briefing as well as check lists?
  15. Hi, I downloaded the required mods, as your given 1drive link is dead I installed the: VPC-Airfield Equipment 0.9.4 beta.zip and the patch VP Object -20210427T133942Z-001_patch.zip the the shapes directory of main/ However, putting directly the mods into saved games/DCSopenbeta/Mods/tech/main for VPC, NatoGF in tech as well as Civil Aircraft in mods/aircraft, every time I load a base static file like UAE or DUBAI intl (but also plenty of others), when I launch the flight, I get a window: DX11RENDERER error : shader " model/fake_omni_lights.fx " failed to compile
