Awesome man. Your vids are my goto ones for learning new planes.

Old-N-busted: i7 4720HQ ~3.5GHZ, +32GB DDR3 + Nvidia GTX980m (4GB VRAM) :joystick: TM Warthog. TrackIR, Rift CV1 (yes really).

@Redkite - great video, well explained and very useful. Thank you.

 

As a side note, I cannot wait for this full-glass cockpit equipped 4th gen jet to hit DCS. I wonder if this will be the most modern iteration of any jet we'll see in DCS (fingers crossed it's not).

It very well might be if deka keeps updating it to match real life.

I'd decided to go with some of the more advanced systems as the basics are easier to learn. I don't have the time to work up to it, so i prioritise difficult topics to try and help the most people where they might struggle. I highly recommend Chuck's work in progress guide and Jabber's channel too!

very nice video.

 

and very nice modelisation of the airplane too. I really loved the focus the camera was doing when changing the zoom level.

 

I don't like the JF-17 as a plane, but I'll definitely buy and use this module.

Same... but the plane feels very feature rich and modern. Something I have been wanting for to fly in DCS. I don't mind legacy 4th gen as they are still commonly used (F18, F16) but this is a modern take.

 

I'm sure the Pakistan pilots wouldn't mind a F18E or the F21 (new gen F16) but they are content with their inexpensive yet capable JF-17... Much better than flying a modernized (or legacy) Mig-21 lol...

I can get the whole JTAC procedure, with the JTAC lasing the target, I have the code set right, I do the LSS track, I slave the pod to the illuminated target, but when I release the weapon it does not track the laser.

 

When I go to the weapons screen the right laser code is displayed. What I cannot do either is switch to point mode when I am in laser track. I must be doing something wrong? When I self-designate and lase it works.

No idea if I'm missing some simple little thing or I've got a broken TPOD.

 

Followed the vid instructions (and the guide), hit POD >> WMD7 >> WMD POD Aligning >> Remain Time: 0

 

Please help

 

It is recognized as a bug, I believe DIS has this fixed internally, so all we have to do is wait for a patch.

You need to disable LSS mode by pressing the button.
