Entering target data any other way isn't really supported. So if you want to drop multiple bombs on more than one target in one pass, you need to enter the data via the UFC.

The bug here appears to be that using TOO to set PP TGT points shouldn't be, they are separate modes and shouldn't affect each other. And this is most likely why it isn't working right, as it shouldn't work.

As well, setting up a multiple drop on multiple targets would need to be done in PP mode, meaning all TGT data needs to be set via the UFC if you are doing it in flight.

TOO is for one target, and not meant to set up a multiple target multiple drop mission. You can drop multiple bombs in TOO, but the will be on the same target.

This is all based on the available information we have. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
Some funny irony that the unintended mode works quite well , double irony being you could argue it is actually a better system than what we understand as being the correct one from the real world

This is the kind of stuff that just shouldn't happen, TOO transfers to PP has been "working" this way for almost 6 months, multiple tutorials have been written about how to use this - including Chuck's Guide and now 3+ weeks after ceasing to function you're trying to say that should have never worked?


You couldn't reach out to anyone to let them know before people started crabbing about the functionality being totally hosed for the last 3-4 OB updates?


Come on man.

F18, all systems are in wip and therefore can change its operating logic. That this method worked a long time does not mean that it was the right one, TOO mode is the only one that can acquire objectives without using the UFC.

Another point JDAM / JSOW is not finished, some functions are not implemented and you may have errors in its operation.

I want to bring into the discussion one thing.

In TOO page you have TOO1 and TOO2. And it supposed to work as two memory slot for storage coordinates.
But right know they are not working

Its already on the TOO page but does not work.
PP1-6 on the PP page, are working.

I wonder why not fix that and give us something that we can work on TOO.
Making possible to do two drop to different tgts in one single pass, using the TGT.

If you fly high enough you can drop 8 Gbu38 on 8 different targets in one pass, with TOO and TPod, the IN RNG period being long enough to aim and drop 8 times.

And when the first bomb hit the target, other vehicles move away and 7 bombs hit ground.

Yea, yea, I know... gbu-38 is not supposed to be dropped on vehicles.

Default JDAM PP MOD STEP

If STEP is pressed in PP mode, the filen is changed to TOO mode without changing.
STEP does not work.

See this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=254210


The behavior has changed and it seems this is the way it it supposed to work in real life. To release multiple JDAMs in one pass, you need to manually input coordinates for each station in PP mode ahead of time, or you need to quickly shift the TPOD or waypoint to a new target and designate it in between releasing each bomb.
