It would certainly add a lot of capability to the aircraft without much work needing to be done on systems etc, the cost/reward ratio makes sense to me.

But then again..
Actually, it's the laser pod which change it's code to match the bomb's code which is set on the ground.
On M-2000C (no TGP) you can set the code in mission editor.

Ugh, these harrier guys....

What do you mean enable buddy lasing ? Buddy lasing is something you do, it is not a function.

If the GBU-12 is available at launch(to be equipped on the aircraft), you don't need a targeting pod or laser finder to perform a strike.

All you need are coordinates, talk-on, or/and a smoke. CCIP drop and that's it. The bomb doesn't care, if you are the one lasing or someone else, it just seeks for the lase with the correct code, no matter the source.

Look at the F-5E, doesn't even have CCIP

Sorry, if I have misunderstood what you guys are asking for, but if this is the case, just wanted to shine some light on the topic.

Cheers

Would be great if we could get a word from one of the devs

Yes you have misunderstood what we mean.

For starters one might not even be able to load GBUs on the aircraft to begin with. It might only have access to loadouts using the weapons outlined as being functional for early access. So point number 1 is "Allow us to load GBUs"

Now the other aspect of buddy lasing is that we need to be able to change the laser code for the weapon, this is another systems function which would have to be enabled by ED.

I think we all understand how to buddy lase, we are talking more about backend stuff that ED would have to put in place to allow us to buddy lase. If we can't even load GBUs in the first place let alone CCIP them or change the laser code then it won't be possible.

Basically we would need them to allow us to mount GBUs and edit the laser code within the mission editor/kneeboard
