Now kinda funny thing:
I finally rembered to save a track of flight where gun pipper was displayed low and bullets flew well above the target. I was just checking the track, but in replay the gun pipper works perfectly. So instead of showing how bullets fly well above the target, with pipper right on target and IN RNG, replay shows pipper above the target and bullets flying where pipper aims...
After second gun run, I was switching from CCIP to MAN and back. While in mission I remebered how pipper moved up while swicthing from CCIP to MAN, and down while from MAN to CCIP, in replay it moves the other way round.
So, at least to me, gun pippers is displayed kinda randomly.
Note to trk: It is custom mission, gun attacks starts +/- after 15 mins (08:45 in game time)

I confirm having the same problem with the reticle solution for the air to air gun, at different ranges and angles, including level flight

Another attempt as in my previous post, similar results. Sceens compare how I see gun CCIP pipper in-game and later in replay. What could be wrong?

I'm finding the greatest problem with the gunsight is air to air in multiplayer. It must be lag or something, but the gunsight jumps around so much I can't even use it.

I usually have around 200 ping as the servers I use are in Europe (I'm in Canada). I don't have an issue in single player.

Solution for A-G gun is just wrong, it always go long, sometimes on level A-A especially at close range it goes way above as well

Any news on this? Is it being reported and acknowledged?

Zuni rockets seem to hit a bit short (30m or so). I tried different approaches. Shallow, steep, in between, firering just as in range appears, firering a little later, a little sooner. Always short. Only when I had the pipper a little bit above the target, would I hit the target.

Was just some practice, where I had deployed some Mk83's and a Mk 84, then Zuni rockets, and lastly, gun runs. Gun was way long again. Tried switching back and forth, CCIP to Man and back etc. ARM safe, armed, AG on and off. Would always be long.

Would like to bump this as well. It seems the entire calculation method for most (if not all) A2G weapon platforms are off. Mk82s are always long, Mk84s are always short, Mk83s seem most reliable but are still typically off during AUTO runs, the gunsight pipper is always well below actual impact point, and on the rocket pipper the rockets always fall short.

At least all of the weapon systems are consistently off, but is this at least acknowledged?

Yes thats right. Almost all weapons in Hornet are very inaccurate. CCIP gun is absolutly terrible and i cant hit nothing in with canon.

I dont have any problems with Mk 82, Mk 83 and Mk 84 CCIP accuracy. I can hit any sized target - I drop in pairs.

The gun though, thats a strange one. Some times it works, and accuracy is quite ok (spreads them bullets like a water hose though). But other times, well the pipper sits lower (as already displayed by Gnat11 further up), and accuracy is way off. And I cant for the life of me find a procedure to give me one or the other result. Ive tried different loadouts, different order of deploying them. On and offline. Just no luck.
