Default MOD to have JTAC coordonates in L/L

Hi,

I modified the NATO.lua file to add L/L (degrees, minutes, decimals). Now, the target designation (accuracy = 3) is given with two informations :
-> In MGRS
-> In LL

I don't know how to get the aircraft type from NATO.lua file to adjust the good information depending of the Aircraft type.

If somebody knows, ask me !!

LL moves at increments and JTAC doesn't necessarly pinpoint the location of the target but somewhatclose to it

Default I will test but ...

The formula is easy :

take abs value of Vabs
take integer part I of Vabs
M = (Vabs-I) * 60

so I degrees M minutes with decimals secondes

The LL value are given by base.coord.LOtoLL(point) presents in the original file (no change)

The best way is to compare with position in editor.

In the exemple you give, the difference is 44/100th of latitude.

It's near of 815m, not 1Nm (1852m)
