Default F-14 Dont need no CAT (Bug?)

Not sure if this is a bug. But normally an F14 would need around 1300 ft to reach minimums. In this video I use around 300 ft.

This is the default quick start mission on PG map Case 1 recovery.

What’s your Wind over the deck? It looks windy by the sea State.

What's the carrier's forward speed? 6kts of wind plus the carrier's forward speed (if it's heading in to the wind) would be the effective wind speed. You're showing 26kias still, and like 105kias off the deck.

So you have 131kts at the lip that’s 9 under rotation for ground take off, and your clean. Even with full internal fuel you got trust to waste from those big engines.

Well your using AB on deck, moot point. Your wings have been pulled for blowing 20 jets off the back of the boat and killing 20 people. If you're in an B or D, the rule is no AB on the cat, or during landing or waveoff or taking off at the field. It is capable of no-wind take-offs on the carrier. Repeat this with full mil and we can call it a bug.

Its realistic that they could start over the whole deck without a cat and AB. F-18 can do this also.
They just never did it.
