I'm curious if padlock view is included in the upcoming 1.03? Or could I add it myself in current 1.02?

Anyone else having TACAN issues? I'm wondering if it's me or the new TACAN settings that got worked into DCS.

Also, I forgot how much fun this thing is! Carrier work is a blast! I'm guessing there's no workaround for the Scooter taking off again if you hit full power on a trap?

I've had no major issues with TACAN. It is a line of sight system so make sure there's no mountains or anything between you and the emitter.

As long as you pull off the power before the rollback is finished there should be no issue with taking off again at full power.

Great mod. So much fun. Love flying this bird!

Any suggestions on the best Russian SAMs to use the Shrike on? Can't get mine to lock on.

Thanks!

Try it with an SA-2 group for the beginning (SAM SR P-19 for search, Fan-Song for tracking and some SA-2 launchers). Works perfectly. Engage the SR P-19 from something like 12 nm away. You will have to beam a few times in order to get close enough, but it works.

Can't wait for version 1.03 where we probably will have a lock tone and maybe even ECM - or at least some warning tone and light, when a SAM is launched.

Well in the current alpha version the Shrike Lock tone works and is amazing at improving your accuracy with Shrikes within weapon parameters, and the simple RWR is working very well, though you'll have to get used to the base tone that plays continuously and the threat light works well too. The more advanced RWR is working in testing, but is still a while away from being a useful player aid.

Try this mission. It gives you everthing you need to use the Scooter in the SEAD role (and it is fun). https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...se_id=16411000

Awesome. Can't wait for it to go live!
