Default GBU-24A/B

Any estiamte or near term plans to finally add the guidence to the GBU-24A/B in DCS? I find it to be a much more viable and useful weapon than the Walleye or fancy cruise missiles. This would also make them usable in the F-16 and Tomcat, after all the GBU-24 has been always on the feature list of all those modules.

As the GBU-24 wasn't on the roadmap list (please see the newsletter from last Friday Oct 11th) it seems it will come at a later point

It's been both on the Hornet's and Viper's roadmap from the start.

Weasel is talking about the road-map of priority features that came out with the last news post here: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php...&postcount=219

Meaning that all we know right now is it is not planned for immediate release.

Bummer. Because the Paveway III's offer some interesting capabilities compared to the older II's we have right now.

I agree Airhunter it is a bummer. I would have much rather seen the GBU-24 than the Walleye. No offense to the Walleye users. :-D



Maybe we'll get lucky and ED will surprise us with it soon.

Longer range, more standoff, better low level performance.

However more difficult and finicky to plan correct flight profile and impact angle, fuzing etc.....if modelled correctly.

Interesting to see what happens.

It behaves more like a glide bomb than like a standard laser guided bomb.
