Channel 4 is powered directly by the battery bus.

Channel 5 (ultimate emergency) is powered directly by the battery bus too.

The word is redundancy.
My guess was not far off bulls eye.
(Channel 3,4,5)



Channel 1 -2 = generator driven by hydraulic motor?

MUDSPIKE - I think, no such thing exist. I believe it's either SPIKE (A-A) or MUD (A-G). Correct me if I am wrong. But...there is a Podcast with an (ex) A-10C pilot by Dojo from 476th and I recall he explained it there.

EDIT:
By the way, if you check one of the brevity docs like this one https://fas.org/irp/doddir/army/fm1-02-1.pdf (which may be out of date) the term is explained:
Quote:
MUD (type w/direction/
range if able)
1. RWR ground threat displayed with no
launch indication.
2. RWR indication of surface threat in track
mode. See DIRT and SINGER.
There is no MUDSPIKE mentioned in the document.

Yep, I concur. Was told the same recently by a Marines JTAC instructor. It is one or the other, but since DCS has it wrong, everybody uses it

Quote:
SPIKE/SPIKED
(direction)
RWR indication of an AI threat in track or
launch.
(AI threat? "Air threat"?)

Just by reading the FM1-02-1, I would interprete "MUD" as "ground based threat" and SPIKE as "there is a threat that is airborne".

So, I'd say, yes, there is no "MUDSPIKE", but there might be "MUD! SPIKE!" for "that ground based threat just fired some missle!"

@Hamilton, anytime :-)

Another thing:
VOR navigation, p. 109, point 3
Quote:
Set the HSI...mode to VAD
I believe the second needle always points to VOR beacon, except TEL mode. Where it points to interception course (not implemented) . See the original manual p. 106 . So, no need to switch to VAD mode. VAD mode is for offset (bearing/range) from TACAN station navigation, see p. 107.

Cheers

I believe the brevity for a Ground 2 Air missile being fired is SAM:

Quote:
SAM (direction) Visual acquisition of a SAM in flight or a SAM
launch, should include position.
p. 43, https://fas.org/irp/doddir/army/fm1-02-1.pdf

I am not a real pilot of course.

The interview I mentioned is the Episode 12 of the Dojo's podcast
Here: http://www.476vfightergroup.com/cont...ast-Episode-12
The part about RWR threats and brevity, starts 2h 34m 36s

How I understand what he says:

NAILS - Possibly A-A, search mode
DIRT - you believe it's a ground threat, search mode
SPIKE - A-A in track mode
MUD - A-G in tracking mode
