I have seen the hot reload of the Apache gun, but nothing else.


I've been out of the service since '93, but I can't imagine ordnance safety/operations has changed.

So it's a correction within DCS, not a bug. Got it.

My old startup procedure no longer works either. Not saying it was right, just saying that was corrected too.

Not just hot start but cold and then startup will result in the same. The crew is requesting idle not stopped so hot-pit is allowed. With or without the throttle locked. I also tried various weapons only, gun only, TPOD only and fuel only. Same results.

DCS Bug, Probably inherited from whatever ED changed on the last 2.5.6. Hopefully gets resolved

A LOT has changed since '93, but yes, hot rearming the 25MM gun, MK82s, GBUs, JDAMs, and BDU-33s happen all the time. The only ordnance that does not get hot rearmed are rockets and missiles (both AA and AGM) due to static electricity and HERO concerns.

The Harrier is known for pissing out fuel from the vent mast while hot refuelling, commonly known as the 'shark fin', which is why you will generally see them extend their IFR probe (00:51) even when on the ground, since it 'tricks' the jet into thinking it's flying and getting gas from a tanker, allowing it to vent excess pressure.
