Have you tried Mavericks though? Can you slew them and fire multiple ones if designated with a TGP?

I worked with Mavs awhile ago...I'd have to brush up on it. There is great info on this question in this forum.

edit my OP #7
You can move, designate, move, designate, move, designate then when in range, release, release, release. All 3 on target. You don't want to un-designate between the 3 tgts. because then must move back from boresight.

I must add to clarify my OP, you need to un-designate only once you are at the last station before release.
I don't think there is a way not to un-designate and release without overwriting the first station. As mentioned in previous posts, it would be nice to keep the TPOD in the tgt area for damage assessment.

I have found there is no need to un-designate before weapon release...at least with the JSOW. This allows you to stay on tgt and re-designate another tgt in the area or just to monitor the impact damage.
With air start you wont see a timer

Just hit the MAV button twice in the DDI make the DDI SOI and un-cage the maverick

Hope that helps

Do not Designate the WAYPOINT on the target on the HSI, the slew button will not function!
I DISCOVERED THAT ACCIDENTLY!

Hope this helps,

A diamond on the heading tape means you have designated the waypoint as the target; you cannot undesignate with a button.
You must use waypoint: up/dn to clear WP Designate.

EDIT: i turned the FlIR off an on again, and was able to do a waypoint designate tpod slew 1 time sucessfully. but after i launched my bomb it stopped working again, aka could no longer cage or designate
