Display L&S of flight members


Recommended Posts

During this free period I've been able to try out the Viper. I've found it much easier to maintain SA in a BVR engagement in the viper mainly because the Viper MIDS shows which targets flight members (as well as other Link-16 fighters) have 'bugged' (basically the Viper version of an L&S target).

 

Does the Hornet have a similar feature for its D/L that just isn't implemented yet, or is this something it just doesn't have in real life? Flying with AI wingmates is a real pain in engagements because they follow no logical sorting, so being able to see who they're targeting is a great way to efficiently use missiles. In MP, it helps me see sorting errors and adjust on the fly.

'Coming soon' tag. Nice!

It was confirmed by Wags some time ago that it's not a feature of the Hornet. There might be a mix up with TXDSG, which should apply to A/G targets.

Wags said the legacy hornet doesn't have this feature.

 

Surely the coming soon tag generates a lot of doubts.

 

Maybe the mod who tagged it didn't take the time to read the OP and thought he meant the TXDSG button.

Damn!  everytime I think I'm going to concentrate on the Hornet and not bother with the Viper - something like this comes along.  I'm surprised that's not a Hornet thing.  It's a basic capability that I thought was inherent in all Link-16 FTF data sharing.

 

Makes me even more excited to get my hands on Razbam's F-15E Strike Eagle, as that (lock lines, wingman targeting, etc) is also a basic feature of the Strike Eagle's Link-16 display.  The Mudhen will definitely be the best of both worlds between the Viper and the Hornet.

We're all making assumptions. It is possible the person who tagged this post DID read and understand it. Last year the ability to slew designation in the HUD in all modes, and TPOD PTRK designation following targets were also 'confirmed' not features of the legacy Hornet. It is possible that, like those items, new information has been presented that suggests that this was, in fact, a feature of the legacy hornet.
