F-14B Bomb Will Not Always Drop


Recommended Posts

In "CCIP" or "CCRP", there are times that my bombs just don't want to drop whilst holding weapon release. I've had all the correct settings via Jester and my panels, but sometimes they "just decide" not to drop, heh. Good Gs have this effect? I try not to pull too hard for bombs, considering I don't want to mess up my alignment too much.

 

Thank you for your input.:)

 

P.S. I have a few threads today as I didn't have time this week, sry :smilewink:

I've had this issue too a couple of times, I think jester may be fouling something up if you tell him to change a lot of settings. Telling him to select mk 82 or whatever again has helped.

 

Or it may just be me that's doing something wrong.

Things to check:

 

-INS fine alignement, and not having suffered over-G

-AG mode

-Master arms on

-HUD reads 'ord'

-Having all the pertinent weapon stations armed, and only the pertinent ones (RIO)

-Having the correct bomb mode selected (RIO)

-Having the correct weapons selected (RIO)

I also tried re-asking Jester to equip the ordinance and didn't work sadly:(

Yes, I double and triple-checked all of your points :) Thanks for the feedback. Good info for many, I'm sure:)

 

I tried it yesterday with CCIP, 8 bombs fell without problems everytime I pressed the button.

 

Yes, oddly, one time 4 dropped and the other 4 didn't without over-ging..

I'm pretty sure I've encountered this before too. But since I started double checking the settings at the IP. I haven't seen it happen since. I figure Jester must've been messing something up after I switched out of A/G mode.

I also forget sometimes to make sure no A-A weapons are selected as well prior to switching to A-G.

Cheers!

I cannot reproduce this. My bombs drop every time, even under hasty/harsh flying conditions. I select A2G, masterarm on, tell Jester to select payload, tell him to either computer pilot or computer target and release.

 

Can you show us a video please that clear shows your actions step by step?

Is fine alignment required to drop bombs?

No, I just broke the INS allignment at 09, took off and dropped bombs.

 

 

OP, Computer Target mode (CCRP) require certain parameters and actions to be succesful.

I am having a similar issue.

 

Loadout is 2x AIM-9Ms, 2x AIM-7MHs, 2x drop tanks, and 4x Mk-82 Snakeye.

-A2G selected

-Master Arm on

-Order Jester to select MK-82 SNAKEYE

-Order Jester to select ripple quantity of 28

-Order Jester to select ripple time of 10ms

Attempt to drop bombs in Computer Pilot, but no release. I've found that Jester does not always change from Mk-82L to Mk-82H (and vice versa) despite you selecting the only available option in the appropriate weapons select menu.

I have had a problem similar to this but even weirder. So me and my rio were trying to bomb something. He selects the pylon with all the bombs and puts it into ccip mode, but it refuses to drop. But when we switched it to manual it worked fine and also worked fine with ccrp. This has happened to me and my rio on multiple occasions.

Sorry, I've been quite busy for a bit.

Yes, he does seem to be screwing something up in some way.

Side note: Sometimes Jester doesn't deselect the bomb that's been dropped or the front dash/panel is still telling me that it's there.

 

I also forget sometimes to make sure no A-A weapons are selected as well prior to switching to A-G.

Cheers!

Good thing to keep an eye out for, but I don't usually have it selected. TY:)

 

Another possibility: if you tell jester to jettison fuel tanks you will have to tell him to select bombs again afterwards

Thanks for the tip! I'll keep my eye out:)

I'll show you a video IronMike, when I start recording soon, if it happens again, thank you:thumbup:

 

P.S. I've been having issues with getting missions to work due to an uninstall/reinstall, so it may be a little bit.
