UPK-23 control box

I wanted to try the gun pods but can't locate the control box when I do ramp start. I looked in the manual and it mentioned the control box is supposed to appear in the cockpit whenever I have the gun pods mounted in the inner pylons. Can someone give me a hint as to why the control box doesn't appear? Thanks!

Hi Hexypu,

 

the controlbox of the UPK-23 should be attached at the canopy over the HUD, like any controlbox in the MiG-21. But if you set the gunpod, SPS-141 or a nuke in the editor, the controlbox will not appear, cause of a bug which will be patched sometimes. To get the controlbox you should rearm your aircraft at the airport over the communications menu.

 

I hope I was able to help you

Oh, so it IS a bug at this moment and I did use ME to set it up. Just wanted to check to make sure of my sanity since it should've been in front of my face all this time [as in what the flight manual mentioned]. :) Can't use those pods otherwise.

 

Thanks for the help Malek! I will give it a shot (literally)!

UPDATE:

Went in and tried the workaround... and it doesn't work! Looks like I can't use the gun pods because there's no way to turn them on. All these different DCS versions are not helping with bugs it looks like, at least LNS is not keeping up with things.

In DCS OpenAlpha 2.04 same thing, no UPK-23 control box.:mad:

Just encountered the same problem. I thought I am buying a mature module considering the Mig21 has been out for so long but it does not seem to be the case , disappointing!

Everything in DCS, including DCS itself is in constant development. As the new features are added and old bugs are squashed, some new bugs may be introduced. It is unfortunate but that's how it is. It will be fixed, have some patience. :)
