Tried the F-16's TGP today for the first time.
(Mostly motivated by the nostalgia, of droping LGBs from 25.000 ft on North Korean vessels at another sim some 5 years ago, and also to compare the F-16's procedures against the F/A-18C.)

After a while writing the 31 steps for LGBs employment at Chuck's guide into paper sheets, I decided to try, and within an hour I could consistently employ the LGBs on the given targets.
Either using waypoint or boresight mode; not without some quirks though.

Might be wrong, but got the following impressions:

- trying to change waypoints (by the increment/decrement switch on ICP) after tweaking with TGP / FLIR page seems a bad idea... because one is 'calling' anything other than the expected waypoints from mission editor;

- also, sometimes the TMS Down (re-center line of sight to boresight) didn't work, really don't know what I was doing wrong;

- some other time, I believe the procedures didn't work (couldn't find the waypoint), because I didn't press the "GB10" pushbutton, although the SMS page had it visible already;

But overall, I liked the current status of the TGP, it seems WIP but doesn't look that bad already.


edit

By the way, using the "cage / uncage" command seems to mess all up.

Anyone knows which command un-designates the target / point / area ?
Thank you.

So, is there any command to un-designate the T-pod / FLIR target ?

Because without it, I can't get back to waypoint track...

Yep... sometimes the waypoints seem bugged also.

So as of last patch, CCRP steering cue, which includes the TGP SOI, is now 180 degrees facing away from the steerpoint. Can someone verify to make sure it's not just me?

Probably the same I experienced as in my post above.

So, could anyone confirm if there is any un-designate command for the TGP or not ?

The tpod in CCRP mode actually moves the steer point, you cant reset it, it is not normal and it will be corrected as far as I know.

That's why I was getting the feeling, that the waypoints I created at mission editor were being all messed up after a while...

Thank you for the info.
