Default CCIP pipper too low to see.

Hey, folks.

A couple of mission ago I was flying the CAS mission, #2 of Hornet 1989.

I had the default CBU-99's selected, set to CCIP, INST and VT with default HOF.

Unfortunately, no matter how low or fast I flew or how steep gbc dive was, the CCIP impact reticle never raised above my nose and into FOV. This prevented my attack from doing anything.

While dodging SA-6 and -8, carrying eight CBU-99's and a belly tank, this was already a challenging attack run...somehow my systems got borked. So I can avoid this in my next attempt, has anyone else had this issue, and how did it start?

Thanks, duders.

Depending on your altitude and speed, you might need to have a pretty steep dive angle to see the reticle.
CBUs in the Hornet are best released at around at a dive angle of 30-35 degrees. Are you doing it like that?

should be in a 25*-30* dive. This will allow you to see the pipper and drop properly.
