Default On JDAM and JSOW

Regarding JDAM and JSOW, Wags mentioned that JDAM and JSOW are very complex systems. Does this mean that for JDAM and JSOW, there are many attack parameters we can set? Can they plan flight routes, attack angles and collision angles?

No, the routes apply to the JSOW, not the JDAM.

JDAMs don’t apply to routes. That’s with JSOWs because they basically glide to target.

JDAMs can alter their attack angles.

I answered in general. Yes.

You can set impact angle for JDAM’s and also impact velocity in FPS .... needless to say if you set weird values you won’t get a range scale and bombs won’t come off.

You can also set impact azimuth.

But I don’t know how JDAM’s integrate with Hornet avionics.

That's exactly what I need! I'm looking forward to experiencing all this on F/A18C.
