Help re Vikhr

Hi Guys

 

I’m a DCS veteran and even a R/L light aircraft pilot! My goodness the KA50 is a handful of systems!

 

I have mastered most of them, but run into some targeting issues.

 

Sometimes flawlessly I get lock the “C” symbol and bang it fires as it should. However other times I end up getting lock, but no C and no missile when trigger is pulled!

 

I have master on

Laser on

Range between 800 - 2km

About 500m height

Wrap on power on

Manual

And moving GND TGT

 

Using Chucks Guide to set up.

 

What the heck am I doing wrong?

It's been a long time since I've run auto...

 

 

Switching to Manual is basically part of my fence in procedure at this point.

800m - 2km is awfully close for a vikhr, that's guns range. When set to auto you should be within range from about 8.1km.

 

 

Edit: Just tested minimum launch range in the latest open beta. In auto you will get the X in the HUD (invalid launch cue) at 800m.

Just because you have lock, does not mean you have a clear shot. On auto, you have to align the two circles, one within the other. That will give you the C, and your missile will fire when you pull the trigger. Otherwise, your missile will not fire. Manual mean the missile will fire whether you are aligned or not. If your not aligned, the missile probably will not enter the laser tunnel and will just fly off randomly.

 

 

 

 

As razo+r says

 

Put the aiming circle over the Shkval circle and you're good to go. It changes a bit depending on the position of the launcher.

800m is minimum range for a vihkr and 2km is still well within standoff distance of any guided AA. Push your range out to 5-7km, 7km being the vihkrs maximum launch range. Make sure you are also turning the laser off whenever you don't need it. The ranging function tends to burn the laser out quicker, so try not to go crazy ranging everything.

I'd go with 6-10KM myself... Mostly 6-8KM but you can kill targets at 10KM with the Vihkr

You need more elevation. It's obviously not practical sometimes but yeah get some elevation and they'll make it. I tend to attack from elevated cover where I can find it. If not... yeah... 6-8Km is your sweet spot.
