Do yoy know if we will be able to interrogate during STT? Right now if you lock someone during a dogfight you cant interrogate manually, you have to drop the lock.


Thanks for dropping by
It's a known and reported issue.

Wags, I could not find any thread with this issue reported. It is still present in current OB and havent seen any comment on whether it is going to be fixed or remain that way for some time. Would you be so kind to let me know if it will be fixed in the short term? Sorry for being pushy, this is a game breaker for me during close encounters.

Thanks
Thanks, Wags.

What about an ACM, AUTO ACQ mode? if you're fighting with one of these and get a quick lock, does the radar automatically IFF interrogate? I ask because when you select any acm auto acq mode, the RDR ATTK page is automatically brought up. Does the pilot have the option to select the AZ/EL as default page in ACM rather than RDR ATTK page? If not, I guess I'm, again, just shocked that the APG-73 designers wouldn't offer an auto-iff to coincide with a basic radar lock.

They have, that is e.g. auto IFF with STT, which is atm bugged and scheduled to be fixed, as Wags mentioned earlier.

No, it is not "bugged". There is both manual IFF (what we have now), and multiple types of automatic IFF (like STT and ACM modes) that are enabled from the AZ/EL page. Once the AZ/EL page is added, we'll add the automatic IFF modes then.

Thanks

Thanks for clarifying that - I think there is just a great deal of misinformation around due to the whole system being worked upon. I was referring to this post of yours, thinking that auto-IFF on STT (which was still the way to it a few weeks ago - lock target, have it be IFF interrogated) is bugged and returning with the March, 27th OB patch:

As we said at the start, the initial IFF was just a stop-gap until the more realistic system was implemented. The accurate system is now in the process of being implemented.

Thanks
