Actually i would prefere this over a list in the Kneeboard. Quick and dirty exapmle picture attached.
That's a bad solution IMHO, because the threat emitters change from mission to mission. The upcoming mission cards would be a better place to put this.

A Data Cartridge would be the best solution, i agree.

But as a interim solution i would prefer the special tab. You are correct that different missions can have different emitters but i would assume that most missions would use the same SAM/AAA assets, so you could sort table 1 to 3 with the most common ones on table 1 to the least ones on table 3 for example. For some stray bullet (Ausreißer) you would need to do the DED config thing but with the special tab "solution" you wouldn't be doing it for the same(most?) mission again and again, that was my thought behind it.

Looking at Wags' video it seems like ED has already configured the tables like that by default

All right then, good enough for me.

Thanks Wags

Thanks Wags
We get the possibility to carry 4 HARMS:

While certainly not a valid operational payload, we will make it available given that it is apparently possible.

Kind regards,
Matt
