I did a test with the 9Ms but can’t say they are acting normal. When uncaging the aim9 the seeker head should start a search pattern across its field of view. If it detects a heat source good enough it would lock unto that. Also the raw sound from the missile would indicate the status. As far as I can see it’s not possible to uncage the missile when it’s in slave mode. In bore it only follow your HMDS.

Sure, there are a load of issues with the sidewinders, but they have been reported. The most annoying for me is that the missile doesn’t uncage when in BORE mode.

In this thread, I am wondering about what the new uncage behaviour is as per today’s update changelog.

Does it uncage if you have the HMD off? I.e. scan around the hud?

I’ll post the question in the Update Patch thread. More likely to get an answer there, I guess.

I couldn't get it to uncage with or without HMDS. I had no targets to play with but as mentioned earlier no scan pattern and it (seeker diamond) won't follow the HMDS.

I'm not certain what the correct behavior is though, should it do those things?

Guys, see my post#3. Let's stay on topic here.

There are lots of issues with the sidewinder behaviour on the Viper, but this thread is about trying to find out what the change in uncage behaviour is, as stated in the latest patch notes.

Hey guys, it looks like the change didn't make it into this build, so we should see it next OB, sorry for the confusion.

Same behavior. SPOT/SCAN won't change. When uncaging diamond gets bigger but won't self-track. Oddly cursor-enable is doing something, not sure what. It should hands on select the other option BORE/SLAVE while held. No mention of TD/BP.

Not using HMCS. I'm starting from the most basic no radar, bore, spot AIM-9M/L. Getting a diamond to track a target without radar slaving isn't possible.
