Aiming Carets incorrectly placing above VV


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Believe there is an issue with aiming carets:

 

Process:

- Stores page

- Select Bomb/Gun/Rkt

- Box SITE

- ODU select SITE

- Enter calculated Sight Angle Mils for desired Target Placement Angle, per Z-chart (i.e. set 30, or 22 as shown).

- Current result/behaviour is aiming carets incorrectly placed ABOVE the velocity vector.

 

Problem: Aiming Carets should be below the velocity vector. Their function is to aid Target Placement Angle management during Dive deliveries. You don’t want your TPA above your VV because then you’re flying shallow of your planned dive angle.

 

Edit: Not sure about rules for quoting references here, but can quote multiple sources via PM if needed. 

 

Annotated screenshot attached. Problem marked with exclamation mark. Thank you to consider.

Perhaps entering it as 22 is as a positive value, did you try preceding it with the - key? Illl check iwith the SME to see how this actually works

 

Know and use all the capabilities in your airplane. If you don't, sooner or later, some guy who does use them all will kick your ass.

I don't think anything is wrong here.

 

It should be a positive number entry (0 - 270), but the mils are correctly being measured from the waterline of the aircraft, not the VV.

 

If they aren't showing up below the VV, it means you need to compensate for angle of attack and add more.

We all learn something new, glad you were able to figure it out.

 

MArking as USER ERROR and moving to RESOLVED.
