But lack of correct Mode 4 should usually be enough to classify a contact as hostile. Most of the time IRL, if there's a chance of the same aircraft being on both sides, I'm guessing NCTR (or simply...

Well, NATO's ATP-56 (air-to-air refueling procedures) advise the following for F/A-18 A to G): 30,000 ft, 275 KIAS (or Mach .80), so I don't think it's a problem to do AAR at that altitude. As for...

The CBU-99 HOF is selected on the ground, not in the air. One thing that kinda bothers me though is that the 3D model of both Mk 20 and CBU-99 shows an Mk 339 mechanical fuze, but works like a...

[CHECKING] SA-2 missing HARM target class

I noticed today that the SA-2 is not included in either H1 (old threats) or H2 (new threats). The list in the manual does indeed not include the SA-2, but surely this is an oversight and it should be...
