DCS: F/A-18C Hornet – AGM-88C HARM SP Mode Introduction

Next week we plan to release the AGM-88C HARM with the Self Protect (SP) mode. Soon after we will follow that up with the Target of Opportunity (TOO), Pre-Briefed (PB), pullback modes.

Operation of the HARM in SP mode is quite simple:
  1. Master Arm Switch to ARM
  2. A/G Master Mode ON
  3. Select HARM from the TAC/Stores page
  4. Press the HARM Sequence/RAID/FLIR FoV switch or [i] to cycle the ground-radar emitters on the EW page / EW HUD / Azimuth Indicator (aka RWR scope)
  5. RESET will automatically select the highest threat emitter
  6. Press and HOLD the weapon release button or [RIGHT ALT + SPACEBAR]
  7. Shout MAGNUM at the top of your lungs



Some notes:
  • HARM range is highly dependent on launch altitude and speed. A high and fast launch at 45k MSL at 1.3M will allow engagement out to 80 nm.
  • When in SP mode, no target range is provided. Have a good understanding of where the target may be before you launch that HARM.
  • Some advanced SAM systems can shoot down a HARM. It is not a magic bullet.
  • Most of all, have fun and enjoy the SAM payback!

Although the Hornet has more skins than any DCS World module, we are still adding more. Later this month we’ll be adding:

VFA-97 Warhawks
VFA-192 Golden Dragons
NSAWC Blue Splinter

The first two will be for a new Hornet, Persian Gulf campaign being developed by Bunyap and I.

Mission of the Week

This week’s mission comes on the heels of the HARM with SP mode release into the Open Beta this week. This is a standard Instant Action mission in the Caucasus map to practice using the HARM against a variety of targets.

This will later be integrated into the game.

Thanks and have fun!

There seems to be a bit of confusion on how to properly set up bomb fuzes since the 16 January Open Beta release. This video is provided to help shed some light.



Thanks and have fun!
