The jamming capability is still not possible in DCS, because the way DCS simulates jamming means, that you can only protect yourself through jamming, but not others.
Yeah jamming is simplistic in DCS at the moment "from what i gather the radar system in the new engine with the hornet will crank things up a notch or 2 from a fidelity point of view"

But even assuming that does not happen, AA can engage Weapons "as long as you switch them to do so", having fake contacts on A2A radars as well can be interesting game as well in PVP.

I was flying on Blue flags once in the M2k, GCI directs me to a hostile AJS37, and cleared to me to engage, I drop my radar low and see the AJS, and suddenly i see 4 more contacts, I knew i was not going to win a 5 v 1, I called on GCI for back up and that i have 5 hostiles where he told me there was 1, only for him to sell me those where BK90s. Since then it became easy to spot them but I would assume something dedicated and programmable would cause lots of confusion Even if its Vs players only.

From a game engine pov, it should be that AA should treat them the same way ships treat all incoming threats. pretty sure stating on the TALD "i am an aircraft" sorta trigger will work easily. Also BK90 tests I did seem to get every thing to shoot at them.

I think the BK90 in game atm is basically a Hack to the engine where they are basically "AI" aircraft "hence why they also have IFF"

I really find it disappointing that we only have the Mike model for player use in the game, and it would make since to have the P model introduced with the Hornet because the Navy would still have it in loadouts during the time period of our Hornet
subject can carry AIM-7F, AIM-7F-11, AIM-7M, AIM-7M (H-Build), AIM-7P Block 1, AIM-7P Block 2

It would be really nice if one day we could get the SUU-20 pod for the Hornet. The Canadians and Australians have been using this in the past.

Then we prob won't see it anywhere near release, lets hope it gets added along the way of hornet 2.0

So, we will not be seeing double racked AGM-65s or GBU-12s? I was fairly sure the legacy Hornet could carry those on MERs; I know they dont use TERs because of the drag and weight.

If you can find info showing it, then please supply, but currently ED believes that this is not the case.
