Default Attacking Ground Targets using JTAC

Hi guys, I am in the F18 and I have checked in with JTAC at waypoint 3 and hes given me the coordinates to attack N25 51 54 E56 16 40. What is the best thing to do to attack this coordinate with a laser guided GBU or Maverick. I am currently trying to set the coordinates from a waypoint using the data tab in the HSI screen! I don’t know if this is the right thing to do? Thank you

You enter the coordinates (if possible) into your waypoints, look at where it is, look out for potential threats, watch the terrain and possible escape routes and then attack according to your plan that you just set up with the safer weapons.

Set the waypoint as TGT and then
For laser guided bombs, use auto delivery and go through the comms to have the JATAC mark the target with the laser. Same with a 65-E, get a lock on the laser.

Thanks guys, the JTAC doesn’t give me a elevation, he only gives me coordinates. She’ll I put 0 for elevation?

So I have put the coordinates in waypoint 3. Do I need to contact JTAC again to mark the target with laser ? Just to clear things up, the coordinates are not the precise location of the enemy ? It’s just the area in with the enemy are in and I’ll need JTAC to laser point the target for me? Thanks. Also I don’t suppose there’s any good tutorials kicking around for a beginner like me?
