Default A-10c Windcorection (Urgent issue).

HI all A-10c pilots out there.

Need help to solve this issue.
Which spreadsheet is 100% accurate?

Bunyap Sims or Grim Reapers?

In Bunyap's spreadsheet, (Direction (to)
you put in a' 0 before 71 (071).

In Grim Reapers, that does not work, only
put in (71) OK.

So! it gives me 2 different values.

BestRegards: Peter (Fuzzball) Wassmuth.

I ve never used those spreadsheets but you can just use the laste page to find the current wind direction and speed while flying. For example switch cdu to laste, show it on the mfcd, and take notes after you take off while climbing.

Lastly, you really dont need to enter wind data manually. IFFCC builds its own wind tables while you are flying, and its dead accurate. Manual entry wont improve it.

WOW! So this input doesn't matter at all!?
OK! Do you have a nice Video link how you
actually does this in A-10C? (2019).

ThX for your replay.

You dont need to do anything mate, after you take off, as you fly, IFFCC system constantly watches for wind direction-speed and builds its own wind table automatically.

If you are asking about how to see the wind direction and speed as you fly, you need to enter the system page of the cdu then LASTE then wind. It should show the wind speed, direction and weather temperature on the upper section of the screen. You can read more about it on 205. page of the a10c flight manual which is located in your dcs directory, mods/aircraft/a10c/doc

Edit: Correction, its 204. to 207. page of the flight manual.

kylekatarn720!

So this wind correction converting doesn't
do a' FAHRENHEIT useful thing to Dumb Bombs at all?

Do you think Matt Wagner or Ralfidude can confirm this?
(Don't use this Spreadsheets) !??

I'm pretty sure that the wind direction needs to be entered as 3 digits, followed by two digits for wind speed, meaning that Bunyap has it right (not much surprise there ).

There's always been some discussion whether or not it's even necessary to input this into the CDU. Some people argue that in their tests, it made a real difference. Others say it doesn't make a difference in DCS, and in the real world it's apparently only used under very specific circumstances. Unless the issue is too urgent for you to test yourself, you could... test it yourself.

I think Wags never said anything about it, though he probably could. No idea why you think Ralfidude is any authority on this (any more than Bunyap or the Grim Reapers or random dudes putting videos on YouTube).

So! Wind Correction in A-10c Is useless!?
Just forget it and go on with your

Tried not entering in wind tonight, with wind speed varying from 3kts at zero feet to 17kts at 5000 feet. GBU12 would miss or land near the target. Entered in winds, and GBU hit targets.

That's weird, I use the wind correction tables (Bunyap) and I am way more accurate when I do this versus when I don't. Not saying you should use one or the other or any of them because I've heard that some people don't use them at all and they work great. Sounds like something weird is going on there.

I would recommend you try with and with out and see what works for you.

As far as I understood it wind correction through LASTE is only relevant for dropping dumb bombs in CCIP. Guided weapons guide to a certain point anyway, correcting for wind themselves.

They just keep crying and whining how horrible DCS is and how much they got robbed. They keep taking my shiny toy and trowing it in the trash because is not good enough for them.
