AI can jettison gunpod in flight

The AI appears to have the ability to jettison the GAU-12 gunpod if it's attacked by a fighter. As far as I'm aware the GAU-12 replaces the ventral strakes and is not intended to be jettisoned in...

I thought that might be the issue. Annoying because I don't have enough hat switches to bind everything onto one. Interestingly the TGP works fine.

For those like me who can't assign the TDC to a...

Missiles don't always maneuver at max G (if you watch one in F6 view this will be obvious). The issue is that there is only one guidance law available to them, to wit Proportional Navigation (PN.) PN...

RB-74 still doesn't get tone outside rear aspect

This seems to be a long standing issue: The RB-74 will not generate a launch tone unless you're taking a rear-aspect shot. Firing the missile without tone can result in it tracking a nose-aspect...
