Wheel brakes and symmetric braking

I have this same issue when landing the Viggen. I can't use the brakes during landings unless I lightly apply them, since the wheels lock on one side and cause serious yaw instability. This causes an issue where you can't perform a max effort stop using full brakes and thrust-reverser, or use brakes almost at all when landing on a road.

 

 

I'm not certain if this is normal aircraft behavior or just a quirk of DCS though. Are brakes used during initial touchdown at landing, or is it thrust reverser only?

It’s a DCS thing, and perhaps the default DCS code isn’t up to par with the Viggens demand :)

Maybe if the Viggen got a dedicated ground handling code but I guess that’s not a 5minute job.

 

My workaround solution was to set Y saturation to 50 and just use one brake axis for both wheels.

This means I’ve lost the ability to brake left or right side but so far I have not found that I actually miss that.

I can land and not skid off the runway at least :)
