Default CATM-88

Would be nice to eventually be able to load the captive training HARM. I believe our version of the Hornet can only carry CATM-88C, not the B version.

Not trying to be difficult but why? You can just set unlimited ammunition and see what happens with a normal simulated missile.

There are training versions of many other weapons in DCS, so why come up short? I agree it's not a huge priority but I think it's worth having as part of the final product.

Agreed. In addition to the BDU-33, CAP-9M, and training rockets we have in the Hornet, the A-10C module gets a lot more practice weapons as well: BDU-50 in LD, HD (I think), and LGB configurations. I would like to see those on the Hornet, plus CATM-88, and captive AMRAAMs and AIM9X.

Ok I am still a bit confused. The whole point is that you can fire what you like, unlike real life. While I did load the training 9Ls once when I wanted to do bfm practice on a server so they serve a useful purpose, in that you can take multiple shots against each other. Vs a ground target what's the point, it's not moving and you are going to get much less feedback than shooting the "real" missile.

Only real purpose would be for aesthetics (ie taking pictures) and for completeness sake. I agree that this is by no means a priority or something that's even that useful, just a feature that I'd like to see added at some point.

These are good for online squadrons who like to replicate real world training also.

But they are used for real life training because you have no choice, the real thing costs too much. You can guarantee they would train with the real thing all the time if they could for maximum training value.

So now I ask why would anyone in DCS decide to use a CATM 88 and reduce their training value?
