Default Comprehensive weapon guide containing all weapon systems currently in DCS world?

Hey guys,
i have been searchign a bit but did not find anything yet. Is there a comprehensive weapons guide pdf or something that contains all missiles, bombs etc stats currently usable in DCS world sorted by faction and A/A and A/G?
The encyclopdia does not really sort it well and is not accesseable during a mission.

Hrm, the DCS World User Manual seems not to contain such a list. Which manual are you referring to?

Each module has its own weapons. You can use a pdf editor a cut and paste the relevant weapons into your own manual.

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

(Update: improved file)

I was also looking for a guide. The encyclopedia reads the text from the folders in MissionEditor\data\scripts\Enc in the DCS installation folder. I did a quick hack that parses these files and generates a CSV file, attached here. I have named it .txt bacause .csv attachments are not allowed in this forum. You should be able to import this to your favorite spreadsheet editor (like LibreOffice or Excel).

The file contains all metadata of all weapons, with one column per metadata. The metadata columns are in alphabetical order except the first that is the name of the weapon. I have merged some metadata that have similar but different names. For example, some weapons have "Max range", some "Range" and some "Range max". All are now in a single column named "Range".

The table may contain parsing errors since the format of some weapon files were not consistent with the majority. (For example BetAB-500shp uses Latin1 encoding although the files are specified to use UTF-8 encoding.)

With the table you can sort and filter to get a pretty good overview of what you are looking for.

Hi Ozone42, I was looking for this info also, thanks a lot for the file!

Can you please share the hack file so we can generate our own .csv files when new weapons are introduced in the future and keep this file up to date??

Thanks!
