No answer yet, though, they've said multiple times it will be the most thourough simulation to date, if your research says it should have FLIR in the HUD, it'll get FLIR in the HUD. *EDIT* Should be via ATFLIR, nite hawk etc. not planned

What I DID find was that they're planning on reworking the FLIR technology to be more authentic.

Default APG-73 radar capabilities

I've also read that the APG-73 radar in air-air mode is capable of tracking 10 radar contacts at the same time and engaging 2 simultaneously.

Does anyone know if these capabilities will be modeled or if ED has talked about modeling them in the Hornet once it is fully completed?

I'm fairly positive it will be modeled. This is already available even in FC F-15, being able to "lock" two targets in TWS mode and engage with AMRAAMS. I don't think, however, this will work with AIM-7, as it requires continuous illumination in SST mode.

ED said that they planned on incorporating this... So yes.



My question:

Can we expect ALR-67 data to be displayed in the HUD and Radar Attack pages as seen in the below thread?

The Sparrow needs STT for guidance, so yeah..no TWS with the Aim-7.

What the sparrow can use is FLOOD mode, which just blasts everything out in front of it with radar energy and the Sparrow would pitbull at whatever it wanted to. This was also known as HOLY CRAP BAD IDEA mode and at least in the Tomcat world..kills using FLOOD and the Sparrow were not considered legitimate

If in TWS an AIM7 is fired the radar will attempt to go STT on the L&S target

Does it actually go STT? I'm not as familiar with the hornet setup - in the eagle it'll go to FLOOD, and that basically doesn't get the missile tuned and the target search doppler frequency on the missile seeker is probably set to wide interval.

Here you go GG a ref to APG65 TWS transition to STT on the L&S target. this from a McDonnell Douglas FA18A Software manual.
