To not forget ECM...

Im just curious, when we have Walleye and AWW-13 pod already, will the next weapon be SLAM or SLAM-ER, because they use the AWW-13 datalink pod too..

Look at a point on the ground, press a button and the TGP can slave to the point the pilot is looking at, if I am correct.

Very likely, although they likely have stuff that needs to be developed for them, such as their autopilot.

The A-10C took longer.

Yes, about that way. You make the HUD/HMD as your SOI and you designate ground where you are looking. And then you can start searching with targeting pod the area for fine tuning.

The most feature rich thing that system allows to do, is the threat designation for low-level flying when penetrating enemy front-line. You fly low and fast, and if you have optimal visibility you can just look at the interesting areas you see and mark them. Then get out of the area and get up in the altitude to start processing that data.

Honestly, there is enough for ME to work on mastering it. But AMU (data cartridge) will be HUGE. Been waiting this long, happy to wait longer I guess.

They've done a decent job at this. I'm sure there are people that are legitimately "held back" by some lacking features, but I'm not one of them.
I'm really wondering how much of the core tech is actually already done. Deka has ALL of this stuff in the Jeff today. So I'm wondering how much of it is their proprietary stuff vs core ED API's. They said at least the A/G radar tech was ED's API IIRC.

They haven't even started on the EW stuff yet, Chiz posted a job opening for an EW coder a few weeks back. But at least it looks like that is gonna be in the pipe too.

Stuff like a new JDAM seems trivial. But I'd rather they finish up alot of the half-finished systems, like JDAM DLZ (works in the Jeff). Plus damage and other basic systems modeling.

Yeah, this will make both the hornet/Viper/(new a10c?) real A/G killers.

I think all the work in the F-18c was groundwork and the F-16 will go much quicker. What you see in updates are far behind where they are in development, they just have to test and test more to ensure they get the results they are looking for. Very time consuming. If you look back at all the development that was going on at the same time, you would be amazed they got anything done. I have to say (because I am a frequent critic of ED), is they have done a great job.
